Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s hypocrisy is astounding. He opposes a wall for national security but bought up neighboring homes to create a “safe space” for his family.
He criticizes others’ opinions that he says “label others,” while his company daily and aggressively labels and censors speech.
On the one hand he says:
“I hear fearful voices calling for building walls and distancing people they label as ‘others,’” he said. “I hear them calling for blocking free expression, for slowing immigration, for reducing trade, and in some cases even for cutting access to the internet.”
On the other, his company shut down a popular 2 Million Bikers to DC Facebook page because of a comment someone posted.
And he was caught via an open microphone telling German Chancellor Angela Merkel that he was working on ways to stifle negative stories about migrants being posted on Facebook.
And, while he criticizes GOP front-runner Donald Trump for vowing to build a wall on the U.S. southern border, ABC News reported that he bought four homes for $30 million adjacent to the areas of his property: “to create his own mega-compound” to create a “safe space” for his family.
The Washington Examiner reported that “several congressional critics emailed secrets stories about his huge personal and home security. This, from a man who bought every house on his neighborhood block to clear the area and create a safe space for he and his family, [said one congressional source.] I bet he has some pretty sturdy fences to protect his land. Not to mention a platoon of personal bodyguards.”
In fact, the ValleyWag reported that Zuckerberg “is quickly becoming the worst neighbor in San Fransisco yet.”
Even Sen. [score]Jeff Sessions[/score] weighed in. In 2014 he wrote:
Mark Zuckerberg just made an unusual purchase. Well, four purchases. Facebook’s billionaire founder bought four homes surrounding his current home near Palo Alto, Mercury News Reports. The houses cost him more than $30 million, including one 2,600 square-foot home that cost $14 million. (His own home is twice as large at 5,000 square-feet and cost half as much.) Larry Page made a similar move a few years ago so he could build a 6,000-square-foot mansion. But Zuckerberg’s reason is different. He doesn’t want to live in excess, he just wants a little privacy.
That is a world the average American doesn’t live in.
Worse still, USA Today recently reported that Zuckerberg laid out an ambitious 10-year plan to connect the world under what would ostensibly be a Facebook-controlled Internet. Zuckerberg’s vision for global dominance includes:
- Artificial intelligence, which will help Facebook better sift through, identify, and censor photos, videos and posts;
- Connectivity, the goal of making Facebook and the internet available everywhere and to everyone through lasers and drones;
- Virtual and augmented reality, which Zuckerberg says will one day bring together friends on other ends of the planet through a pair of “normal-looking” glasses that can overlay digital elements on the physical world and become “the most social platform.”
Zuckerberg plans for global dominance while picking an choosing which opinion can be posted or censored on Facebook. He welcomes illegals through a porous border but not anywhere near the “safe space” compound he built for his family. The border, and America, doesn’t need to be safe. Just Zuckerberg. Maybe the two million bikers should ride to his compound first, before riding to Washington, D.C.
