Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made a showy display of banning former President Donald Trump from the platform in the media to prove he wields more power than the White House.
Members of his far-left social media “Supreme Court” appear to be presenting themselves as a legitimate judicial process that exceeds a duly-elected commander-in-chief. Although members of low-IQ woke culture may be persuaded that Mark Zuckerberg is truly a “Master of the Universe,” the entire façade wreaks of a poorly orchestrated reality television show.
Members of Zuckerberg’s hand-picked judges previously went on the record accusing Mr. Trump of obstruction of justice during the Russian Collusion witch hunt, one worked for George Soros, and another referred to him as “Hitler.” Never has Mr. Trump indicated he wanted his account restored, which leaves the digital appeal one ex-president short of legitimacy. Regardless of Zuckerberg’s phony process, censorship by one party runs contrary to the American way of life.
“What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country. Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before,” Mr. Trump reportedly said.
Because Facebook issued a temporary suspension, one can only surmise Zuckerberg plans to go to the well again. He created an opportunity for another unsolicited “Supreme Court” decision to flex his digital muscle. Twitter CFO Ned Sega was at least more honest about his radical liberal leanings. He called for a permanent Twitter ban of the former president’s account. That largely means he’s not basking in a self-congratulatory power-trip aimed at attracting woke groupies.
But Zuckerberg, and to some degree, Twitter may not like the political blow-back from international leaders. Members of the EU elite such as Germany’s Angela Merkel have quietly voiced their displeasure without actually confronting Zuckerberg. Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was not so subtle about expressing his ire.
“I don’t like anybody being censored or taking away from the right to post a message on Twitter or Face(book). I don’t agree with that. I don’t accept that,” Obrador said. “How can you censor someone: ‘Let’s see, I, as the judge of the Holy Inquisition, will punish you because I think what you’re saying is harmful. Where is the law? Where is the regulation? What are the norms? This is an issue of government. This is not an issue for private companies.”
The Mexican populist couldn’t have stated the truth any better. Zuckerberg and cohorts think they are now more powerful than elected officials and dictate what national leaders can say to millions of people electronically. Mark Zuckerberg no longer believes he is above the law. It’s abundantly clear he thinks he is the law.
