I took a look at the thread. It's about conservatives taking issue with another version of Easter bunnies and getting mocked for it by multiple people. It doesn't make sense to pick out one post of a thread that has a set theme (mockery with no intent for any meaningful discussion, because it's just a funny video), moderate it and leave everything else alone.
Looks like a case where one post was reported and the context of the thread wasn't reviewed before a decision was made, because if it's about not offending people, the whole thread would need to be shut down.
