Facebook’s Zuckerberg Defends the Indefensible

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Complicit with dark forces in Washington, Facebook is a censoring machine.

It’s like other (anti-)social media, Google, and other tech giants – wanting content conflicting with the official narrative suppressed – the hallmark of totalitarian rule.

The neocon/CIA house organ Washington Post gave Mark Zukerberg (MZ below) feature op-ed space to lie and deceive – Facebook flagrantly undermining democratic values, not protecting them, as he falsely claimed.

MZ: “Our responsibility at Facebook is to amplify the good and mitigate the bad.”

“This is especially true when it comes to elections. Free and fair elections are the heart of every democracy.” 

“During the 2016 election, we were actively looking for traditional cyberattacks, and we found them.” 

“What we didn’t find until later were foreign actors running coordinated campaigns to interfere with America’s democratic process.” 

“Since then, we’ve focused on improving our defenses and making it much harder for anyone to interfere in elections.”

Fact: FB illegally and unethically removes vital truth-telling accounts and material falsely called “inauthentic.”

Fact: FB deletes accounts and pages based on information supplied by the CIA, US State and Treasury Departments, acting as an agent for the imperial state – violating the rights of its users.

Fact: Democracy in America is pure fantasy, elections when held farcical, always turning out the same way – dirty business as usual triumphing.

Fact: Not a shred of evidence proved interference in America’s electoral process by Russia or any other countries. Claims otherwise were and remain bald-faced lies.

Fact: Electoral meddling is a longtime US specialty, not how the Russian Federation operates.

MZ: “Key to our efforts has been finding and removing fake accounts…millions of fake accounts (blocked) every day, (claiming they) spread spam, false news or inauthentic ads.”

Fact: Whatever diverges from the official propaganda narrative in FB pages, the company on orders from the deep state considers suspect.

Fact: Allied with the CIA and other dark forces in Washington, Facebook, other (anti-)social media, Google, and other tech giants increasingly aim to suppress truth-telling on vital issues.

Fact: They’re militantly Russophobic and hostile to other sovereign independent states Washington earmarked for regime change.

Fact: What MZ calls “misinformation” and “abuse” is anything challenging Washington’s imperial and neoliberal agenda – hostile to world peace and social justice.

He bragged about “work(ing) with law enforcement (sic) to take down (legitimate) accounts in Russia” he called “fake,” “suspicious,” or “inauthentic.”

No evidence suggests possible foreign interference in US November midterm elections. MZ lied claiming Facebook “made a lot of progress…identif(ing) and remov(ing) fake accounts and bad content leading up to the elections.”

Accounts and material eliminated likely had legitimate information hostile to policies dark forces in Washington wants suppressed.

A previous article explained the following:

Facebook allied with the Atlantic Council (AC) – a neocon infested enemy of world peace and stability think tank, promoting NATO’s killing machine, America’s military, industrial, security, major media complex, and Ziofascist Israel.

FB partnered with AC’s imperial geopolitical agenda to censor material falsely called “foreign interference” – AC’s Digital Forensic Research Lab involved in so-called “fact-checking,” code language for flagrant censorship.

Wanting vital information diverging from the official narrative suppressed is the new normal in Washington – FB allied with forces for evil, not good.
