Earlier this week, it was revealed publicly that Ben Shapiro was among the many conservative influencers who had been dining privately with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at his home.
Zuckerberg talked to Shapiro in the hopes to form an alliance with the neoconservative commentator, and it appears that the Big Tech overlord was successful in courting Shapiro into his sphere of influence.
A glowing article was published on Shapiro’s Daily Wire on Thursday that painted Zuckerberg as a hero for free speech fighting back against restrictive content curation policies preferred by Democrats:
“I’ve focused on building services to do two things: give people voice and bring people together,” Zuckerberg said while addressing a crowd at Georgetown University. “These two simple ideas — voice and inclusion — go hand in hand.”
“We’ve seen this throughout history, even if it doesn’t feel that way today. More people being able to share their perspectives has always been necessary to build a more inclusive society,” he continued. “And our mutual commitment to each other — that we hold each others’ right to express our views and be heard above our own desire to always get the outcomes we want — is how we make progress together.” …
He further expressed his pride in representing a company which values the American tradition of free expression, but noted that free speech is also not absolute, especially when that freedom infringes on another individual’s rights. He also examined some of the difficulties in determining what should constitute acceptable speech on the social media platform.
“The future depends on all of us. Whether you like Facebook or not, we need to recognize what is at stake and come together to stand for free expression at this critical moment,” Zuckerberg said. “I believe in giving people a voice because, at the end of the day, I believe in people.”
“And as long as enough of us keep fighting for this, I believe that more people’s voices will eventually help us work through these issues together and write a new chapter in our history — where from all of our individual voices and perspectives, we can bring the world closer together,” he added.
While Shapiro’s site covers Zuckerberg’s lip service in an obsequious manner, the corporation’s recent history shows an extreme hostility toward freedom of expression, particularly from conservative points of view.
Facebook’s lawyers have recently admitted in the court of law that the corporation is a publisher that maintains the right to arbitrarily censor content for any reason they see fit.

Zuckerberg’s social media platform has also shown extreme hostility against Christian speech in recent months, indicating their opposition to the most basic of American values.

With the many Big Brother offenses that Facebook has already brazenly committed, no conservative collaborator with them can be trusted – particularly Shapiro, who already has a long-record of opposing President Trump’s “America First” agenda.
Hungary Will Take Action Against Big Tech Shadowbanning of Christians, Conservatives, and Other Right-Wingers
Holding Big Tech accountable.
The government of Viktor Orban, prime minister of Hungary, has announced its commitment to take on Big Tech’s shadowbanning of Christians, conservatives, and other assorted right-wingers.
In a Facebook post shared Monday, Hungarian Minister of Justice Judit Varga said she believes that shadowbanning—the secret restriction of a social media user’s visibility—violates “fundamental democratic legal norms that form the basis of Western-type culture.”
Because of Big Tech’s “systematic abuses,” Varga said she convened a meeting of the Hungarian Digital Freedom Committee and will soon meet with the president of the Hungarian Competition Authority regarding “the possibility of sanctioning unfair commercial practices.”
Varga also claimed she has personally experienced shadowbanning and then linked to the following tweets from James O’Keefe and the O’Keefe-run Project Veritas:

"One strategy is to shadow ban so that you have ultimate control."
"It's going to ban, like, a way of talking."
"You just delete them, but the problem is there are hundreds of thousands of them, so you got to write algorithms that do it for you." pic.twitter.com/NQBsSziI2X

The Hungarian government, along with the Polish government, is considered one of the last in the Western world that’s committed to some form of social conservatism and resistance against neoliberal globalism. Big League Politics has thus closely followed Prime Minister Orban and Hungary over the past several months, reporting on Orban’s various confrontations with George Soros and news such as their proposed constitutional amendment to prevent gay couples from adopting children:
