Conservatives all over the country responded to Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook creator, for his comments at the F8 conference about those who would build walls, physical and otherwise. And while his opinion may have some fired up about progressive social agendas many are calling him a hypocrite for living largely in exclusion and with a security detail to rival that of royalty.
Here’s Zuckerberg’s comments via this NBC report:
Speaking Tuesday from Facebook’s F8 developer conference, Zuckerberg spoke out against those seeking to build walls — physical and digital.
“As I look around and I travel around the world, I’m starting to see people and nations turning inward, against this idea of a connected world and a global community,” he said. “I hear fearful voices calling for building walls and distancing people they label as others. For blocking free expression, for slowing immigration, reducing trade, and in some cases around the world even cutting access to the internet.”
Trump spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, blasted back. Read it here in NewsNinja:
“Self-righteousness isn’t very proactive: We can talk about taxes, we can talk about jobs and even immigration, but that doesn’t really put food on the table and save lives,” she told CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.”
“I think I’ll take Mark Zuckerberg seriously when he gives up all of his private security, moves out of his posh neighborhood, and comes live in a modest neighborhood near a border town, and then I’m sure his attitude would change,” she added.
Herman Cain had this to say about Zuckerberg and his unrealistic idealism.
