Mark Zuckerberg Finishes Another Long Day Of Deciding What People Should Believe
Babylon Bee ^ | 05/25/2017 | Unattributed

MENLO PARK, CA—Giving his arms and legs a nice little stretch while reclining in his office chair Friday afternoon, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, confirmed that he had successfully completed another long day of deciding what people around the world should believe.

The tech titan, worth $71 billion, went on to describe the weight that comes along with being the arbiter of moral fitness and objective truth, able to make or break nearly any website on the internet by lowering the organic reach of their posts or outright banning them, based upon Facebook’s opinion of the views expressed in their content.

“It’s hard work, dictating which worldviews are acceptable and which are not. But someone has to do it,” he said. “We can’t just let people consume whatever they want.”

At publishing time, Zuckerberg confirmed that he was smothering the reach of this very article.

The Bee is fighting back after having their parody site “fact-checked” by FB/Snopes, haha. Good for them, it is a really funny site.

The Babylon Bee is a Christian satire site — but this satire piece on the despicable Zuckerberg rings pretty well true.

Zuckerberg has censored the Babylon Bee.

The Charismatic and Prosperity movement deserve to be satirized.

So-called Net Neutrality did not protect free speech or the posted content of users on facebook, twitter, or youtube.

Shadowbanning, suspension, and deletion of content and accounts was A-OK by these globalist dictactors (who advocated the Net Neuter legislation).

But it was supposed to be about access to the internet, no?

If Fakebook is going to restrict the postings of those to the right of Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman, then they are not a common carrier and must be considered campaign contributors come election time.

And yes I know this article and quote are satire but the message is still the same.

That FB "partnered" with Snopes (run by a fraudulent adulterer) to "fact check" articles on Fakebook just makes me laugh out loud!

No one with an IQ above 72 and a reasonably functioning brain has believed anything on Snopes for a very long time now.

Good satire usually does have a ring of truth to it. I only recently discovered the Babylon Bee. I think they're very good at what they do.

Parody is truth here.

Social media is eagerly cooperating with the democrat party in suppressing free speech. The dems get to say “We aren’t doing it” all the while enjoying the benefits of having normal peoples’ thoughts crushed and not having to be called on the First Amendment violation.

FB, and all the other social media, is owned and operated by America-hating leftists who suck in the money all the while hating capitalism.

I honestly believe that this guy DOES believe it’s his job to tell the world how to think.

It’s an ego problem brought about by too many riches and too much fame at such a young age.

Exactly what I had intended to say;that there was an ego problem here. I guess I don’t need to post it now that it’s been said. Zuckerberg’s opinions mean less than nothing to me,but I suppose it may have an influence on some.
