It’s no secret Mark Zuckerberg uses Facebook’s giant social network to rig elections and sway public opinion for his left-wing agenda.
But this time he went too far.
And what Zuckerberg accidentally admitted to could be bad news for President Trump in 2020.
In an interview at the Aspen Ideas Festival, Facebook’s CEO was asked about what he is doing to comply with governments in regards to free speech and elections.
He stated that many countries don’t have laws that pertain to this issue so he makes the determination on what the company will do.
Which is when he dropped this bombshell.
In 2018, Ireland had a referendum to legalize abortion in the entire country.
Facebook chose to ban ads from pro-life organizations so that legal abortion could pass.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted during a recent talk that the social media network banned a number of pro-life advertisements ahead of the Irish abortion referendum.
PJ Media reports that during a recent interview at this year’s Aspen Ideas Festival, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg began to explain how the social media firm is attempting to work with the governments of other countries to determine what political speech should be allowed on the site. Zuckerberg gave an example of Facebook’s interaction with the Irish government ahead of a 2018 referendum on the legalization of abortion in the country.
“We ended up not allowing the ads,” Zuckerberg stated.
This is nothing new for Facebook.
The social media network was caught favoring radical left-wing candidates in the 2016 election and suppressing content from Republican candidates and causes.
Republicans in Congress demanded that he testify and defend these unfair practices.
Senator Ted Cruz grilled him and left Zuckerberg totally defenseless.
But that hasn’t stopped him from exerting his influence around the globe.
This does not bode well for the 2020 election.
Facebook could double-down on their efforts and potentially sabotage Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.
Other tech giants such as Google and Twitter have been caught doing the same thing.
But Facebook may be the most dangerous one of them all.
What do you think?
Should Facebook be punished for interfering with free speech and U.S. elections?
