Billionaire oligarch and globalist extraordinaire George Soros said that nothing is preventing Facebook from disseminating disinformation.
He even argued that the company may be conspiring with President Donald Trump to get him re-elected.
“I think there is a kind of informal mutual assistance operation or agreement developing between Trump and Facebook,” Soros, said on Thursday, January 23, 2020 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “Facebook will work together to re-elect Trump, and Trump will work to protect Facebook so that this situation cannot be changed and it makes me very concerned about the outcome for 2020.”
Soros did not back up his claim with any evidence. “This is just plain wrong,” Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said in response to Soros’ unfounded conspiracy claims.
Soros has frequently used his annual Davos speech as a platform to attack the social media titan. Back in 2018, he compared Facebook to a gambling company that gets its users addicted. The billionaire globalist also emphasized the need to regulate technology firms back in 2019.
Facebook has been placed under the microscope for the Russian misinformation campaign that allegedly ran undetected on the social network in the months leading up to the 2016 election.
Since then, the company has worked to improve its technology for removing what it considers “coordinated inauthentic behavior”, which are malicious efforts by foreign governments to manipulate public opinion. However, critics counter that Trump is helped by Facebook because he has the ability to generate public outrage, which is only amplified by social media’s overall reach.
Facebook mulled over taking down political ads containing lies. However, the company decided at the beginning of this year to not proceed with this course of action. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg appealed to first amendment values and declared that no corporation should determine what political messages are true or false.
This announcement allayed the fears of Republicans, who have grilled the company about a perceived anti-conservative bias.
“Facebook basically has only one guiding principle: maximize your profits irrespective of what harm it may do to the world,” Soros said on Thursday.
In the aftermath of Soros’s 2018 Davos speech, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg asked her staff to research if Soros had a financial interest in criticizing the company. Specifically, she inquired about Soros’ holdings or trading activity. The company also hired the services of an opposition research firm to see if Soros financially backed anti-Facebook groups. The New York Times previously ran a report covering the fallout from Sandberg’s decision.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
