Mark Zuckerberg has made it clear that he does not understand the 1st Amendment. Or what “political speech” actually is.
Now, within the context of his creation, Facebook, he is free to promote or suppress speech as he sees fit. The problem is that he doesn’t want to do it. I mean, he does want to do it, but he doesn’t want to be blamed for it. Instead, he wants the government to do it for him.
The problem is, of course, that like many in the entertainment and governmental industries, he doesn’t seem to grasp that the Government cannot do that… well… in fairness, there aren’t very many people who grasp that.
It all makes my annual question to 129 men who died this day in 1963 more poignant.
