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.
It’s a nuclear meltdown!
Apparently, it’s the end of the world because Justice Kavanaugh was confirmed. It’s not, and it’s really just a very small portion of the population that’s tweeting that he should be murdered. they are loud and they are obnoxious, but there’s only a small number of them.
Meanwhile, Conservative activists are just as stupid. Stop with the post about Justice Ginsberg “forgetting” the 14th amendment. She didn’t, and if you had actually watched the video instead of just reading the headline you would know that not only did she NOT forget it, you don’t know the relevant text word for word either.
Stormy Daniels brought her “act” to Sacramento. In addition to the usual collection of creepy old dudes giving her money to “dance” for them, half of the audience was women. They came (Phrasing!) to “support” her for having been paid for having sex with the President when he wasn’t the President.
A new United Nations report says that we must double our efforts to combat Climate Change. In Five Billion years nobody will care.
