Facebook just made an announcement that has leftists enraged

51

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?

  2. I hope Zuckerberg does keep Facebook in a platform for free expression . It is amazing how even a liberal like Zuckerberg can see that his own Liberal friends are taking it too far! I think what will happen eventually is there will have to be Conservative only run social media like Facebook . If Facebook does not honor free speech and freedom of expression then a whole new Network will have to be created that does . It is that simple .

  3. You’d have to be really ignorant to trust anything Zuckerberg says. He has lied to congress and lies constantly to protect his own interest!

  4. Democrats are communists. You can’t have FREE speech under communism. You can’t have guns under communism either. That’s why democrats are opposed to both.

  5. I am banned from Facebook and I don’t even care. And Uncle Hoppy, you are correct, but it goes even farther. The dem party wants complete control over our government and every aspect of our lives

  6. Communism isn’t as bad as you conservatives make it out to be. Its not the boogie man.
    If its handled properly by the right people without any corruption then it has the potential to make everybody’s life better. Better in that there will be no more poverty, no want, no income disparity, no hording, and no worrying if you become old or disabled and can’t support yourself. The resources will be shared equally among everyone, not just a select few on top.

  7. Anthony Lukatella: Oh my Mr. Lukatella, PLEASE tell me you are not serious with your comment? Communism is not that bad if its handled properly?? Tell me one where country communism works . Other than never never land that is. Thank you.

  8. Linda M., that’s a bogus argument. Tell me one country that is like the United States.
    And don’t tell me Australia or the U.K. because they are not.
    Just because something hasn’t been done before doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be done.
    Communism has never been tried. The former Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and even Nazi Germany are not, and never were true communist.

  9. I’ve never had a Facebook page, so without direct experience, what I say about it is just hearsay. But a man who built such a project into such a success, surely does not expect to be or accept being bossed around by those who are heavily opinionated but not so successful. His previous approach possibly made him appear vulnerable to authoritarian types with illusions of NWO dancing in their heads.

  10. Anthony Lukatella; It is not a bogus argument. You stated it would work if no corruption isn’t involved. Since man walked upon this Earth, corruption and greed has always been part of the human race. There is no such thing as TRUE communism. Every country you named are labeled as a communist country. Plain and simple. Your definition of how you see communism sounds like a pie in the sky idea. And has never worked. Utopia does not exist anywhere here on Earth. And how did we get to defining the United States?? No country is alike. Every one for better or worse are unique.

  11. Linda M., the United States was touted as ‘the great experiment’ but look at it now. Its a disaster that is on the verge of collapse. Sure you can say the economy is on an upswing because of Trump if you want to fudge the numbers and ignore the debt. But eventually the chickens will come home to roost.
    Capitalism had its run but it has come to this. Trillions of dollars in debt. An out of control government. Its funny how you talk about corruption in so called communist countries but don’t see it in your own backyard.
    Communism has NEVER been tried, and every country that calls itself communist is really a dictatorship or totalitarian state.

  12. Linda M., we already had a great depression once. You don’t think it will happen again?
    Capitalism always leads to the same conclusion. It spawns greed which leads to corruption, and indifference to your fellow man, and finally despair.
    If you want to talk about the bible, check out these verses.
    1st Timothy 6:10 and 1st Timothy 6:17

  13. Anthony Lukatella; This will be the last time I respond to you. Not because you are right but this is not the forum for us to go back and forth. Because we will never see eye to eye. But since you brought it up, our country is on the verge of collapse because of the Democratic party wasting millions upon million of dollars of our hard earned tax dollars on their constant witch hunts against our sitting president. Instead of working with our president they chose to act like spoiled children throwing temper tantrums because their evil queen was not elected! Even Pelosi won’t even admit Trump was acquitted! SHE is claiming Trump will be forever impeached. Laws and findings mean nothing to her and her party. Disgraceful.
    Now if you want to put a different spin that the Democratic party is not corrupt and evil, that’s your opinion. But millions of people will disagree.
    But I wish you luck on your quest for finding your Utopia….

  14. Linda M., thank you for your response but I do not agree with you. The country is not on the verge of collapse because of the recent actions of the democrat party over the last 3 years. You can’t pin this on one side.
    This slow descent into collapse has been going on for decades and decades.
    And no, I am not stupid. I know the democrat party is full of corruption. Both parties are. There is very little difference between them.

  15. Anthony, you quote the Bible, but you have no concept at all of what it teaches. God forbids communism. It is evil, satanic. NO FREEDOM. The government will be in TOTAL CONTROL of everything you do. Is that what you want for your children and grandchildren?? You are very foolish

  16. Anthony, our founding fathers were very wise and left us a nation based on their Christian principles, one of which is your freedom. Why do you want to throw it all away and trade it for something so evil?? You have truly been deceived by satan the great liar.

  17. Anthony, what you are calling communism cannot be done. It is impossible. You live in a fantasyland and have no clue about reality

  18. bj, why don’t you STFU? The bible doesn’t condemn communism. You obviously have no clue what you’re talking about. There is no mention of communism anywhere in the bible, but Christians are encouraged to share what they have with each other, and not horde it like the capitalists do. Maybe you need to get off these websites, and spend your time reading scripture instead of trying to lecture everyone on here.
    The only thing worse than an idiot is an idiot that thinks they’re smarter than everyone else. That would be YOU.

  19. Anthony, you have no clue. Communism CANNOT work!!!!! FACT. But just keep living in your fantasyland. YES, the Bible DOES forbid Communism. There is NO FREEDOM in Communism and no God. The GOVERNMENT takes the place of God. The GOVERNMENT controls ALL you do. And Jesus very clearly said we are to work for what we get. And please tell us how Capitalism failed. IT HASN’T!!!!!!!!!! You are very brainwashed.

  20. Anthony, if you don’t like what I am posting, no one is forcing you to come here. This is a conservative Christian site and we know the truth that you deny

  21. Anthony, It’s not that I am smarter. I am not. It’s that I know the truth that you refuse to see. Read our history. It seems that you have no concept of who our founding fathers were or what they left us. You just blindly believe the lies of your lib leaders without question. Dare to seek the truth

  22. I was removed from facebook because I tell the truth, and I am a Christian, a conservative and a Republican!

  23. To those not knowing where these radical ideas are born here is one of interest. “In 1847, the League of the Just merged with the Communist Correspondence Committee, an organization led by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, creating the Communist League. The new group tasked Marx and Engels with writing a political platform for itself. The resulting document was The Communist Manifesto.” It was decided by the power brokers in Europe to be tried in Russia because the country was so poor and uneducated.

  24. Angry and frustrated.

    Unable to post comment.

    WIKIPEDIA SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED.

    Efforts to see ELAINE CHAO results in Wikipedia that she is married to a “marshmallow” [Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell].

    Defamatory and slanderous statements by Wikipedia should be investigated. Why the power in Wikipedia? Who prepares the diatribe?

  25. MAYBE YOU DIDN’T NOTICE, BUT I DID. WHEN THE LEFTISTS START TO GET VERY DEFENSIVE, THEY START CUSSING. THEY TRY TO USE THAT AS A DISTRACTION BECAUSE THEY CAN’T EXPLAIN WHY THEY BELIEVE WHAT THEY DO.

  26. I don’t trust him yet. After all the other crap he has said, he’s got a lot of proving to do as far as I am concerned. I hope he’s being straight and abiding by the Constitution now. Time will tell.

  27. I say let’s just get out the guns and start utilizing our Second Amendment rights on each other I would like nothing better than to practice on some of you CHRISTIAN/FASCIST.

  28. BJ sit down go milk a cow you Iowa deplorable CHRISTIAN FASCIST. That’s the good thing about demographics sooner rather than latter the white people in this country will be the minority and fly over country will be very depopulated.

  29. Any limitations placed on free speech remind me of Communist regimes and Fascist regimes. Our republic functions best when ALL voices are heard, and ALL ideas are considered. That’s why America has been so strong. When one party wants to control your speech, how you think about things, what color hat you’re allowed to wear, what political parties you’re allowed to publicly support, and refers to opponents using nasty, derogatory terms, that party is NOT pro-democracy.

  30. I use FB for a very different reason. I use it as ministry to encourage others and share my life’s history. I admit I do get a little political because I believe God wants us to be good stewards over this land. I hear what the FB general says. Let’s see what he really does. Could be he means what he says; however, when the money comes in to play, he might make a u-turn. As a Christian, I have a mandate to live, work, love, encourage, help, and other actions that speak clearly that I do all of this because God loves me. I want Christians to continue living their faith at home and the workplace. There used to be signs that read: I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. That belongs to any and all business owners. I was taught to treat all people with respect. Sorry that can’t be said of some who are in elected offices. Let’s see what the FB general does be it follow through with his words or make that u-turn.

  31. I hope Mr. Zuckerber will stand tall and keep his word. I believe he will. That is why he is where he his. He seems to do what he says he will. The bottom line is we will see. How things go. I say what I think and do not give a damn if you agree or not. We can always have a conversation about it. Who knows we might learn something from one another. But don’t try to control what I say, think or believe in. It is known as agree to disagree. It generally ends up to be a fun learning event. #1 rule be respectful to one another.

  32. Even billionaire globalist George Soros got in on the act and said, “Mark Zuckerberg should not be in control of Facebook.”

    George Soros should not be in control of anything in this country. He is a communist expatriate.

  33. Anarchy is the only freedom there is, religion is a control method as is politics, there is no freedom with democracy, religion or communism, they all mean to control you in one way or another. Too bad so many believe that this crap teaches man to be peaceful, but all I’ve seen in my many years is war. Why can’t we just get along??? well, it is because of religion and politics, and until this crap is banned, mankind will always be at war.

  34. Anthony Lukatella. The Bible may not use the word “communism”, but Jesus told us to render unto Ceasar what is Ceasar’s and render unto God what is God’s. The communism you desire is complete government control of every facet of life, from birth to death. The fact is that however imperfect their execution was and is, governments in Russia, China, Venezuela, Cuba and other countries have based their system on communism. It has been demonstrated to be a complete disaster everywhere it’s been tried. You live in some sort of delusional state of mind believing that the reason communism hasn’t worked is because it’s never been done right and you seem to believe it’s possible for it to be done right. Since man is imperfect and makes mistakes, it cannot be done right. But this assumes that it’s desirable in the first place.

    No culture has done more good for the people than the American style free market culture, what you communists label as capitalism (Karl Marx coined the word, you know). The poorest people in the United States have far more of life’s comforts than Kings and Queens and other rulers have in the entire history of mankind. Few don’t have cars, color TV’s, refrigerators, microwave ovens, and money to squander on tobacco, alcohol and lottery tickets. OK, they do manage to have the last three in communist countries. The point is, under any other system, those convenient items wouldn’t exist at all. It took creative people with the freedom to invent a better mousetrap to come up with these things (including that computer on which you pound out your screed). The kind of government you desire didn’t do any of it.

    I know, the article was about facebook and freedom of expression, none of which we’d have if communism had been our system of government.

  35. Joe Poisson; With all due respect to you sir, you really sounded like the late John Lennon’s song Imagine, by what you said. There is no utopia here on earth. Not anymore. Because man was given free will, and as long as man has walked on this earth, there has always been greed, control and survival of the fittest. Religion and government really has nothing to do with what’s been happening all these years on earth. It’s humans and their perception’s of things. What’s right and what’s wrong. Who should control what. The trick is we all must learn to coexist and reach a middle ground for everyone to continue TO exist. But It will never be as you want here on Earth.
    That’s why I need my GOD. I put my trust in HIM and my faith has gotten me through some terrible events in my lifetime. And I also believe everything happens for a reason in our lives. How we handle it , is our choice. I wish you well and I hope you will find peace…

  36. Joe, you have no clue. Your freedom comes from God who gave it to us. You can deny Him, but that just makes you a fool. All evil comes from satan who will take as many of us to Hell with him as he can. God loves us so much that he let Jesus come to save us from satan, Hell, and death. We have the choice to follow Jesus to Heaven or satan to Hell. Jesus does not want to control you, but satan does and you have been very brainwashed by him. You will meet Jesus when He returns whether you want to or not. satan and all of his followers will be sent to Hell and there will be peace for eternity. The only question is will you be with Jesus or satan. Only YOU can decide that
    As for money, it is needed for us to be able to buy what we need and pay our bills. Money can do nothing. It is the LOVE of money that causes all the problems. You are correct about greed.

  37. jack, your sick hate is of satan who is your master. You have no clue about Iowa or flyover country. That is very obvious. We are very self sufficient and feed you, but we can cut off your food. No, we will not be depopulated, you fool. You need a lot of help with your hate and racism. Please get it.
    And you have no concept at all of what a Christian is. You just come here and make a fool of yourself. A Christian follows Jesus who teaches love, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness and helping others, ALL of which you need a lot of lessons in. Jesus will come to rule and it will really suck to be you

  38. Jack, your ignorance is profound. It is the dems who are the fascists. Wake up and dare to see the truth that you deny. There is no such thing as a Christian fascist. That is not possible. You know nothing at all about who Jesus is

  39. Fine BJ how about Republithug/Fascist will that make your feel better. As far as rural America hollowing out read any study about demographics the interior of America is hollowing out the rural white population is dying off the young people leave for better opportunity who will replace you. Study within 20 years 70% of population will live in 15 states that means 30 states will have 30% of the population.

    Yes BJ I know about fly over country I grew up right in the middle of the country 40 miles from geographic center of the lower 48. Couldn’t wait to grow up and leave. So yes I know what it is like to grow up in flyover country. Now dispute that BJ.

  40. Please post my free thought. Stop hiding anything people say because culture watch don’t agree with it. That only makes this place look even more ignorant than the left propaganda tools we know are wrong and so do you. We’re not interested in lies and propaganda that Americans now have to fund thanks to the lawless loser who is soon to be locked up that pretended he served the people and only served the devils handmaiden Soros who will be in lock up with his brainless daddy George v George Washington who was a true statesman and American HERO. Communism is evil as everyone knows.

  41. What a bunch of BS! Facebook is equal to Twitter as far as being a censor of anything conservative and arbitrarily removing innocuous posts.
