Mark Zuckerberg says he wants people to think for themselves and that he doesn’t agree with tech companies censoring politicians.
Does this mean that he’s against all forms of censorship? What game is he playing now?
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has responded to calls for social media companies to curtail President Trump’s activities on platforms such as Twitter.
“My belief is that in a democracy, I don’t think that we want private companies censoring politicians in the news,” Zuckerberg told Dana Perino in an exclusive interview airing Friday on “The Daily Briefing.”
Private companies shouldn’t be censoring politicians, okay – but what about censoring everyday people?
During the interview, Perino asked Zuckerberg about Sen. Kamala Harris’ demand that Twitter shut down Trump’s account, which the president uses regularly to share his views on a multitude of issues.
Zuckerberg said Silicon Valley shouldn’t be taking such actions.
“I generally believe that as a principle, people should decide what is credible and what they want to believe, who they want to vote for,” he said. “And I don’t think that should be something that we want tech companies or any kind of company doing.”
The 35-year-old billionaire told Perino it is important for Americans to “think for themselves” about what politicians say.
“Political speech is one of the most scrutinized [forms of] speech that is out there, so that’s already happening,” he added. “Our position on this is not an outlier.”
In order for democracy to work as it is supposed to and for people to really be able to think for themselves, everyone should be allowed to present any idea anywhere without any kind of censorship, shutting down, or coercive opposition.
Ideas should be able to be freely discussed without people fearing for their jobs and long-term financial stability.
People should be able to discuss even the most outrageous premises in an open environment where anyone could chime in and present opposing points of view.
Do we have that today?
Isn’t Facebook known for shutting it down, like the rest of these tech companies?
If Zuckerberg wants to play the anti-censorship democratic freedom role, he should set the example by turning Facebook into a bastion of free speech where everyone, no matter their ideas or background, can write freely about anything and discuss and interact with others without having their lives ruined.
Until then, everything he says should be considered nothing more than cheap Jewish tricks.
To be fair, Zuckerberg actually did hold out for a long time against the Anti-Defamation League.
I remember thinking this was hilarious back in 2014 when he was telling Abe Foxman that he didn’t care if people talked about the wooden doors on gas chambers.
Of course, 2014 might as well have been 1014.
Before orange man – and the big game at Charlottesville – there just was no will among these companies to silence the goyim.
They still pretty much believed in the old idea of the internet – that everyone could say whatever they wanted, that all information coming together in one place would lead to total world enlightenment.
But it turns out that total information simply means total understanding that everything in the world that is wrong was caused by Jews and that basically, Hitler was right.
So the entire concept of the internet had to be abandoned.
To protect the chosen ones of Yahweh.
