In an interview with The Atlantic over the weekend, democrat and two-time presidential loser Hillary Clinton said Facebook’s Mark Zukerberg is a “Trumpian.” She also complained that the social media giant is intending to reelect Donald Trump.
Clinton said that CEO Mark Zuckerberg is “Trumpian” and “authoritarian” when it comes to his unwillingness to battle the spread of disinformation and propaganda that has exploded on his platform in recent years. Because Zuckerberg won’t don more to remove content that Clinton and others like Biden consider “wrong think,” he’s an authoritarian. Perhaps Clinton doesn’t understand the meaning of censorship and free speech and authoritarianism.
Facebook has definitely done their fair share of censoring of right-leaning or anti-government ideas over the past several years.
The censoring of ideas hasn’t gone deep enough though if you ask real authoritarians like Clinton. She’s joining ranks with Joe Biden and using “fake news” as an excuse to shut down freedom of speech.
Clinton recounted how she once tried to get Facebook to take down that edited video falsely showing Nancy Pelosi slurring. Facebook responded by saying that it lets users make up their own minds. Oh, the horror! People actually deciding for themselves what information is relevant in their lives? We can’t have that! We can’t have people making fun of the ruling class, can we?
“I feel like you’re negotiating with a foreign power sometimes,” she said. “He’s [Zuckerberg] immensely powerful. This is a global company that has huge influence in ways that we’re only beginning to understand.” Clinton added “that it’s to [Zuckerberg’s] and Facebook’s advantage not to cross Trump… And it just gives me a pit in my stomach.”
She has a pit in her stomach over freedom of speech and expression, while Julian Assange is tortured in a prison cell because he released real emails of Clinton’s for the public to see just what kind of sociopath she and John Podesta are. We all know this is a call for censorship and no one is buying it anymore.
