Democrats are in panic mode regarding the 2020 election.
Donald Trump’s use of social media was one of the main reasons he won in 2016.
And now Facebook just made an announcement that has leftists enraged.
Leftists do not believe individual freedom on a fundamental level.
If people disagree with them, it’s because they don’t know better, thus they must be “reeducated.”
The Left maintained a near monopoly in news media for decades, but the Internet—and most recently social media—has democratized news in a way that threatens the establishment Democrat order.
Democrats and their corporate press allies have resorted to desperate tactics to maintain their grip on the narrative, but their efforts are getting less effective each day.
They’re trying to censor conservative and heterodox opinions on social media to tamp down the dissent they’re getting from all angles.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey fell in line, vowing to ban political ads and crack down on those who “violate” terms of service, which is heavily slanted toward people who are generally anti-woke Left.
But Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg went the other way and made an announcement that has leftists furious.
He pledged to adhere to the principles of free expression.
During an interview, Zuckerberg said:
I gave this speech around our principles, around free expression . . . That’s just one of the areas that I really feel like is under attack right now. Increasingly . . . we’re getting called to censor a lot of different kinds of content that makes me really uncomfortable. I think that it kind of feels like the list of things that you’re not allowed to say socially keeps on growing, and I’m not really okay with that.
This was a punch to the gut of leftists whose natural inclination is to censor anyone who disagrees with them.
Democrats on Capitol Hill and in the media have been pressuring Zuckerberg to do their bidding, but he seems to be holding steady.
Even billionaire globalist George Soros got in on the act and said, “Mark Zuckerberg should not be in control of Facebook.”
Soros and the Democrats are proving Zuckerberg’s point.
It’s a bizarre day when leftists want corporations to take away people’s free speech.
This goes to show that these leftists have no principles.
All they want or care about is power.
Zuckerberg is certainly no conservative – he hosted a town hall for Barack Obama when he ran for reelection – but even he is bothered by the creeping authoritarianism of the Left.
Will Zuckerberg hold true to his claims of returning Facebook to a platform for free expression?
