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.
Parler CEO “Confident” Platform Will Return to the Internet by the End of the Month
Parler aims to return, soon.
Parler CEO John Matze confirmed that he’s “confident” the free speech social media service will return to the internet by the end of the month, speaking in an interview with Fox News.
“Every day it changes wildly, but I feel confident now,” Matze said. “We’re making significant progress. When you go into Parler.com it doesn’t go into the void now, it hits a server, and it returns just one piece of information.”
“I’m confident that by the end of the month, we’ll be back up.”
Amazon Web Hosting cancelled its hosting of Parler earlier this month. Big Tech oligarchs have blamed the service for the raucous US Capitol protest and riot earlier this month, even as evidence suggests the overwhelming majority of the planning for the event was undertaken on Twitter and Facebook.
It’s a possibility that Parler could contract web hosting services with a company located in the Russian Federation, a country where the overbearing atmosphere of western political censorship isn’t as strong.
Parler is currently litigating with Amazon for the arbitrary cancellation of its hosting agreement, pointing out a provision in the contract between the two companies that mandated a 30-day warning before any termination of service.
A message from conservative commentator Dan Bongino, an investor in the free speech platform, is featured on Parler’s temporary web page.
As Parler remains defunct, free speech platform Gab remains fully operational and has incurred record-setting growth in the last several weeks. Gab’s hosting and server infrastructure is all internally owned and managed, providing immunity to deplatforming attempts on the part of Big Tech.
