Corrupt deep state politician, Joe Biden, is criticizing Mark Zuckerberg over Facebook’s policy on who gets to run ads for the ruling class. The embattled Democrat said: “I’ve never been a big Zuckerberg fan. I think he’s a real problem.”
While Biden isn’t wrong, the Democrat is accusing Zukerberg of having too much power. While we’d have to agree that Big Tech has taken it upon themselves to manipulate the minds of the masses, Biden and all politicians for that matter, also have far too much power. This is a classic case of the proverbial pot calling the kettle black.
Biden called for the repeal of internet laws that shield Facebook and other platforms from being held accountable for the content of users’ posts, according to Business Insider. That means he’s demanding more censorship from Big Tech and asking the company to be responsible for what others say. It’s safe to say that Biden is an Orwellian lunatic. This obviously is more calls for censorship from the government. Big Tech is in the ruling class’s back pocket and we are all aware of that by now.
Biden slammed Facebook for “propagating falsehoods they know to be false,” referencing the platform’s policy that allows politicians to make false statements in advertisements. Biden himself is the subject of a Facebook ad run by the Trump campaign that made the debunked claim that “Joe Biden promised Ukraine $1 billion dollars if they fired the prosecutor investigating his son’s company.”
To be fair, the “debunked” claim was done so by mainstream media who is wholly endorsing Joe Biden and all authoritarian democrats in the upcoming 2020 election. But Facebook has stated they will allow all of the ruling class to lie and use propaganda, it’s the rest of us who are subject to censorship of our viewpoints and opinions.
Biden has insisted that government propaganda that doesn’t fit the narrative and agenda he intends to show down the throats of the masses be removed, while his content stays up for all to see.
Biden also wants companies to be held responsible for the words and actions of others (meaning he demands censorship rather than allowing free speech). The democrat was specifically referencing Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a foundational part of the internet that protects social media platforms, forums, and even news sites with comment sections from facing legal recourse for unlawful posts made by users.
Biden needs a quick lesson on humanity: no one is responsible for anyone else’s actions. Sure, we dislike Zukerberg, but he still isn’t responsible for what others type on his social media platform.
