While Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg regularly pays lip service to free speech, he demands for more government control over the public discourse at the same time.
Zuckerberg showed what a snake he is during an appearance at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday.
“There should be more guidance and regulation from the states on basically — take political advertising as an example — what discourse should be allowed?” Zuckerberg said to a group of Western leaders Saturday at the prestigious event. “Or, on the balance of free expression and some things that people call harmful expression, where do you draw the line?”
“There are a lot of decisions in these areas that are really just balances between different social values,” Zuckerberg added. “It’s about coming up with an answer that society feels is legitimate and that they can get behind and understand that you drew the line here on the balance of free expression and safety. It’s not just that there’s one right answer. People need to feel like, ‘OK, enough people weighed in, and that’s why the answer should be this, and we can get behind that.’”
Zuckerberg will be meeting with European Union officials throughout the week. He is expected to give them the blessing they want to regulate freedom of speech out of existence.
“We need to make sure that the internet can continue to be a place where everyone can share their views openly and where the legal framework around this is one that encodes democratic values,” Zuckerberg said.
“I do think that as part of that, we’ve got to move forward on regulation. Hopefully, we move forward quickly before a more authoritarian model gets adopted in a lot of places first,” he added.
Earlier this month, Zuckerberg was attempting to dupe suckers by claiming that he and his monopoly social media platform were dedicated to preserving freedom of speech:
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced during the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit in Utah on Friday that his tech corporation is going to support freedom of speech from this point forward.
“This is the new approach, and I think it’s going to piss off a lot of people. But frankly, the old approach was pissing off a lot of people too, so let’s try something different,” Zuckerberg said.
Zuckerberg is paying lip service to free speech and encryption while he is under fire from every angle. Conservatives are criticizing Facebook for deplatforming right-wing voices while liberals beg for more Draconian Big Brother censorship against their enemies. Zuckerberg has become a convenient punching bag as political polarization rises.
“Increasingly we’re getting called to censor a lot of different kinds of content that makes me really uncomfortable,” Zuckerberg said.
“We’re going to take down the content that’s really harmful, but the line needs to be held at some point,” he added.
Zuckerberg has the audacity to paint himself as a hero standing up for digital freedom during a tumultuous time.
“If you’re not out there standing for things that people care about then it’s not possible for people to feel that strongly about what you’re doing,” he said.
Zuckerberg talks about Facebook’s new focus in favor of freedom of speech while his platform cracks down on alternative media like never before.
Facebook has outsourced their censorship operation to supposedly “independent” fact checkers that flag stories that go against the globalist narrative. Pages that share the flagged stories are given strikes on the platform, and eventually censored from the news feed.
Fork-tongued hypocrites like Zuckerberg can never be counted upon to defend sacred rights. That is why Facebook and other Big Tech giants must lose their special government-enforced privileges under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act if they do not protect freedom of speech, as Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has suggested.

Facebook Censors Project Veritas Video, Keeping Coronavirus Hysteria in High Gear
Big Brother is ramping up due to coronavirus.
Facebook is reportedly throwing a Project Veritas video off of their monolithic social media platform because the video contains information about coronavirus that is unapproved by the political and media establishment.
CNN reporter Oliver Darcy reported that Facebook would be removing the Veritas video from their platform because of nebulous and unspecified policy violations. Veritas founder James O’Keefe blamed Darcy for allegedly being a snitch and attempting to get his video removed from social media platforms.
This is OUTRAGEOUS. We reported the medical testers and army personnel answers to Qs.

O’Keefe also blasted New York Times reporter Andrew Jacobs for his moral preening in criticizing his coronavirus reporting.

The controversial video published by Veritas shows O’Keefe talking with boots on the ground at coronavirus testing sites. He talked to Army personnel and health care workers who claimed the pandemic is not as bad as the media and government officials are purporting it to be.
Certain transcripts from the Veritas video can be seen here:
James O’Keefe: “What about the situation itself. Is it as bad as–the media is saying? The whole pandemic?”
New York Army National Guardsman: “Oh no. It’s the flu!”
O’Keefe: “That’s all it is?”
Guardsman: “It’s the flu.”
O’Keefe: “Is it as bad as they’re saying, this pandemic? Everyone’s freaking out. Is it bad, is it overblown by the media, what is it like?”
Medical worker: “Is it what?”
O’Keefe: “Is the media accurately reporting or is it as bad as people are saying?”
Medical worker: “No.”
O’Keefe: “It’s not as bad as the—”
Medical worker: “It’s precautionary.”
O’Keefe: “The media is making it out bigger?”
Medical worker: “Yes.”
O’Keefe’s video has garnered controversy because it goes against the narrative of fear and hysteria that has been pushed by the fake news media, government bureaucrats and official expert class.
“The rollout of our findings does not endorse COVID-19 behavior one way or another, nor do we encourage others. Our goal is to inform the public and allow the public to make judgments on the issues,” O’Keefe said. “Emotionally driven, knee-jerk reactions journalists are the last thing the public should be subjected to in a time of crisis.”
“I realize this will probably upset some, but Project Veritas goes to the front lines to get unfiltered, raw information, to the public. We’re not here to project a narrative or even to draw a conclusion—we don’t even know who the villains are, if any,” O’Keefe added.
Despite Facebook’s reported censorship of the Veritas video, there are no plans for Twitter and YouTube to remove the content from their platforms at the present time.
