Zuckerberg Tries Hand At Damage Control By Lying



Mark Zuckerberg claims there is no evidence that Facebook discriminates against conservatives.  I stand here today and call him a f*^#ing liar.  There are dozens of conservative writers in my circle of friends who are constantly being suspended for no reason and it all started in December of 2015 for all of us, which is coincidentally the real beginning of the election cycle.  I have been suspended constantly for the past 5 1/2 months.  Facebook refuses to tell me why, mostly because they can’t.  I am currently on a 15 day suspension.  The thing is I couldn’t have possibly violated their rules since they suspended my account pending identification.  That makes four times I was suspended for infractions that occurred when I wasn’t able to past and hence could not have broken any rules.

One woman I know was suspended for posting a pornographic picture.  It was a tree and furthermore it wasn’t naked, it had leaves on all over.  Joe Newby, a good friend of mine and writer for the Examiner has been suspended on a regular basis also as has Chris Collins and numerous other conservatives.  Funny, but the same thing doesn’t happen to liberals.  Before the election season started, I had been on Facebook for many years doing the same thing as I was doing this election cycle and I had zero suspensions.

Now, Zuckerberg says he will be meeting with major conservative sites, but why bother?  He will just lie some more.  Once Trump is in office, I sincerely hope that he has his FEC chairperson Investigate Facebook for illegal campaign contributions and criminal charges of trying to influence a presidential election.  Now, I know as a private corporation, they have the right to do pretty much anything they want to, but only if they enforce their rules equally and do not punish those not breaking their rules.

Here is a statement full of lies courtesy of mark Zuckerberg: (Trigger Warning:  Put on your boots before reading)

“To serve our diverse community, we are committed to building a platform for all ideas.  Trending Topics is designed to surface the most newsworthy and popular conversations on Facebook. We have rigorous guidelines that do not permit the prioritization of one viewpoint over another or the suppression of political perspectives.”

 “This week, there was a report suggesting that Facebook contractors working on Trending Topics suppressed stories with conservative viewpoints. We take this report very seriously and are conducting a full investigation to ensure our teams upheld the integrity of this product.”
“In the coming weeks, I’ll also be inviting leading conservatives and people from across the political spectrum to talk with me about this and share their points of view. I want to have a direct conversation about what Facebook stands for and how we can be sure our platform stays as open as possible.”
“The reason I care so much about this is that it gets to the core of everything Facebook is and everything I want it to be. Every tool we build is designed to give more people a voice and bring our global community together. For as long as I’m leading this company this will always be our mission.”
You may take your boots off now but please leave them outside the door.
