Mark Zuckerberg Defends Rights of FACEBOOK Users to Publish Holocaust Denials
Mark Zuckerberg, also known as The Zucc, Lord Zucc and the Emperor of Facebook, world’s largest social media platform, is now making headlines for something as basic as defending free speech. You see, it’s the current year, yet Mark is a US citizen, born and bred in the land of the free, home of the brave, where the first amendment in the Constitution is about freedom of expression and the 2nd protects the first.
However, we live in a world where instant communication also means instant censorship and suppression of dissenting views, hence when Mark Zuckerberg defended Facebook users’ rights to express themselves freely with regard to controversial topics (that’s why he have free speech after all, to defend the right of people to express unpopular ideas), leftists/social justice warriors were triggered beyond belief.
The Zucc gave an ample interview for Recode, where he explained that (shockingly enough) Facebook allows so-called far-right conspiracy theories to be distributed on their platform. However, wrong think is still censored heavily via shadow-banning, i.e. Facebook’s algorithms drastically reduce the distribution of that sort of content. So they don’t actually censor dissent on Facebook (not all the time at least), they just muffle it, see. Zuckerberg was accused in the past of allowing people questioning the official narrative about the holocaust, to propagate their revisionist theories on his platform. Despite being himself of Jewish origins, the Zucc said that he doesn’t have a problem with that,because he didn’t believe, let me quote, “they’re intentionally getting it wrong”.
The correct answer would have been “because free speech, commie”. However, Mark Zuckerberg promised that Facebook will start taking down posts that may inspire people to engage in violence, as a response to the tragic events that took place recently in Myanmar and Sri Lanka, where people were attacked after Facebook groups spread rumors that led to physical violence inflicted upon various individuals.
