It’s common for many top executives to ring in a new year by trying to be positive with their employees.
Mark Zuckerberg is no different and after a year plagued with numerous negative scandals, Zuckerberg sends a typical positive message to the 30,000 Facebook employees.
Take a moment to really read parts of Zuckerberg’s 2019 greeting as it could reveal the intentional changes that have taken place.
I’m speaking of changes of how Facebook has been using subversive far-left censorship to silence many conservatives and Christians by trampling on their First Amendment rights to free speech.
Fox News – Facebook’s Zuckerberg blasted for ‘out of touch’ year-end post after scandal-plagued 2018 – After a year plagued by privacy scandals, hate speech controversies, the viral spread of disinformation and the public airing of his company’s internal communication, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg used his year-end note to focus on the positive ー drawing the scorn of critics who blasted the billionaire as “tone deaf” and “out of touch.”
As he looked back on a year that saw his company’s stock price drop and scores of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle calling for new, strict privacy regulations in the wake of Cambridge Analytica, Zuckerberg spent a chunk of his note boasting that 2 billion people now use one of Facebook’s services and the tech giant has empowered countless small businesses.
“I’m proud of the progress we’ve made,” he wrote in the letter, which notes that Facebook now employs 30,000 people who focus on safety, but does not dwell on the specifics of any particular challenge or scandal.
Zuckerberg wrote that Facebook is a “very different company” than it was two years ago and has “fundamentally altered [its] DNA” to prioritize the prevention of harm. He also wrote that he learned a lot in the last year, but a range of critics took issue with the tone of his note…
Note where he says they altered their DNA to prevent harm.
What Zuckerberg is referring to is harm done by allowing conservatives and Christians post the truth.
Franklin Graham was recently given a 24-hour suspension for a post supporting North Carolina’s bathroom bill back in 2016.
A business associate of mine was given a 30-day suspension from Facebook by posting that he supported Jerusalem as belonging wholly to Israel and being its capital.
Another person had his Facebook account closed for violating Facebook policies, and all he posted was Scripture and prayers.
If anything on Facebook offends a liberal, a socialist, an LGBT or Muslim, it is a violation of policy and the poster is reprimanded.
If anything offends a conservative, Christian, straight normal person, Facebook does nothing .
That’s the change that Zuckerberg is subtly admitted to in his statement.
