‘Unbiased’ Facebook Fired Executive For Pro – Trump Political Beliefs

Zuck plays with one of Luckey’s gadgets but denies Luckery the right to his own opinions.

Mainstream media and left wing politicians like to show how they are up with modern trends and developments by heaping praise on psychopathic Silicon Valley, virtue-signaling, shadowbanning, conservative – censoring, fake news generating social media billionaires. Thus, though the political bias towards the left / liberal parties and causes is blatantly obvious, they are allowed, when they appear before US Congressional committees to answer questions on abuse of privacy, or respond to accusations of bias by devising  PR campaigns to show to the world they are truly impartial, with zero liberal bias. Unfortunately, every time they try to pull such a stunt, it backfires as their true ideological face quickly emerges from behind a fake, hypocritical mask.

A case in point is that of former Facebook executive, Oculus co-founder and virtual-reality wunderkind Palmer Luckey, who was a rising star of Silicon Valley when, at the height of the 2016 presidential contest, he donated a modest $10,000 to an anti-Hillary Clinton group. His donation sparked a backlash from his colleagues, which then led to him being put on leave, and six months later he was fired.

What stinks about Luckey’s termination, is that when testifying before Congress about data privacy earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg denied, or rather lied that the departure had anything to do with politics. In fact, neither Facebook nor Mr. Luckey ever gave a reason why he left the social-media giant.

Now however, disgusted perhaps by Zuckerberg’s continued hypocrisy in claiming Facebook is a totally neutral platform politically: according to a report from the WSJ, Luckey revealed to asociates the reason for his termination from that bastion of apolitical impartiality Facebook, was his support for Donald Trump and the furor that his political beliefs sparked within his employer, and Silicon Valley, some of those people say.

We should perhaps remind you here that support for Trump does not necessarily imply agreement with Trump’s policies or admiration of his abrasive style. Post election analysis showed many people supported Trump because they were horrified at the prospect of corrupt, crooked, warmongering, morally dysfunctional Hillary Clinton, who in her campaign had effectively promised war with Russia by committing herself to attacking the Assad regime in Syria as soon as she took office.

Luckey’s attack on Facebook and Zuckerberg is not just sour grapes either:leaked  internal Facebook emails suggest the matter was discussed at the highest levels of the company. In the fall of 2016, as anger over his modest political donation to a candidate the boss didn’t like simmered, executives at Facebook – which according to Open Secrets has spent over $60 million on lobbying in the past decade – including Zuckerberg pressured Mr. Luckey to publicly voice support for libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, despite Mr. Luckey’s years long support of Trump.

At that point Luckey, 26, allegedly hired an employment lawyer who argued to Facebook that it had violated California law in pressuring the executive to voice support for Johnson and for punishing an employee for political activity.

Which, we have to say is pretty typical behaviour among Silicon Valley billionires. Go against the ‘corporate culture’ as dictated by the billionaire boss, and you are dead

Luckey and his lawyer are not as stupid as Zuckerberg is arrogant and megalomaniacal, and negotiated a payout of at least $100 million, representing an acceleration of stock awards and bonuses he would have received through July 2019, plus cash, according to the people familiar with the case. The stock awards and bonuses were a result of selling his virtual-reality company, Oculus VR, to Facebook in 2014 for more than $2 billion, a deal that netted him a total of about $600 million.

In other words, Facebook can claim it was Trump’s “fault” that a $10,000 donation resulted in a $100,000,000 payout just a few months later. What a bunch of wankers.

Demanding news websites be ranked on ‘perceived reliability’ by a state-sanctioned body and controlled by ‘impartiality’ rules, as well as suggesting social media firms fund education for citizens on what news to trust, are recommendations included in a parliamentary enquiry interim report.

The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, made up of anti-Brexit MPs, believe that satire and parody should be included in the definition of ‘Fake News’.

Other calls for all political ads to be registered, significant increases in fines for perceived wrongs during campaigns, including holding social media platforms responsible for ‘fake news’ on their platforms, are also in the report.

The remain MPs report also wants all political advertising to be declared in a public register with all ads to come with an imprint so it is clear where they originated.

Twitter descends into right-left spats over Tommy Robinson release from jail

Supporters and critics of Tommy Robinson have descended into tit-for-tat spats over the merits of the former English Defence League leader winning his court challenge, securing his immediate release on bail.

It didn’t take long for pro and anti-Robinson social media users to clash over the judges’ decision. In London on Wednesday Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett and two other judges quashed a finding of contempt made against Robinson over an incident in Leeds in May – ordering a new hearing over the allegation.

It’s been a case of contrasting emotions on Twitter – joy from Robinson’s loyal backers and irrational fury from his critics. We should bear in mind, before alloeing ourselves to be swayed by the fury, that Robinson has not been declared innocent, he has been released under bail conditions and must present himself at a police station regularly to prove he has not bolted.

The Guardian reports that Robinson has been ordered to attend a retrial in London and to remain at least 400 meters away from Leeds crown court while on bail.

On Fake News And Where It Originates From

It should be well established by now that this blog opposes globalisation and supports small government and individual liberty. It should also be well established that the mainstream media and social media organisations like Facebook and Twitter, controlled by the globalist banking cartel, have dedicated themselves to suppressing what they call ‘Fake news’, which has never been properly defined but which according to mainstream media and social media is anything that dissents from the globalist narrative.

So here’s a little snippet that shows where fake news originates and gives us a clue as to the agernda of those behind it’s use in propaganda.

“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a …….WORLD GOVERNMENT ”

When The Caring, Sharing Culture Goes Too Far

STIs soar in USA with gonorrhea up 30%, HIV infections up by 33%, and syphilis soaring a shocking 79% in the last year alone.

Not so long ago american liberals were proclaiming that the Obama administration had ushered in a new era of enlightened living by embracing the ideas of free love and a caring, sharing society that originated in California’s hippy culture in the 1960.

While the idea that everyone giving everything away for free was hardly likely to produce a strong economy, pragmatism aside there are just some things caring people should not share.

A report by the Rhode Island Department of Health reveals one of the big problems with the caring, sharing, giving it away for free culture. Sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise in the USA, with health officials highlighting casual sex arranged through social media as one of the main factors in this. One official described it as the “perfect veneral storm storm,” with gonorrhea up 30%, HIV infections up by 33%, and syphilis soaring a shocking 79% in the last year alone.

The report notes that “new cases of HIV and syphilis continued to increase among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men at a faster rate than in other populations,” adding that “infection rates of all STDs continued to have a greater impact on the African-American, Hispanic, and young adult populations.”

Rhode Island is just one small state on the East Coast, but the trend is nationwide. An STD clinic in Salt Lake County, Utah, has started asking patients about specific contact methods. When the number of people arranging sexual liaisons devoid of emotional connection through social media became apparent, Lynn Beltran, an epidemiologist at the clinic, told ABC she was not surprised to see a rise in STDs.

“It’s been the perfect storm,” said Beltran. “Our attitude kind of shifted, where it became more acceptable to engage in casual sex.”

Beltran said she had seen an uptick in syphilis and gonorrhea rates, and that many of the newly diagnosed patients said they were sexually active through dating apps.

Just as an aside …

Q: What’s dangerous and eats nuts?
A: Syphilis.

The Rhode Island report raised another interesting point. Between 2003 and 2009, when prostitution wasn’t illegal in Rhode Island due to a clerical error, the state registered a 39-percent decrease in gonorrhea infections among women. Well when a business is charging for its products or services, there are certain trading standards that must be adhered too, for example customers have a right to know exactly what they will get for their money.

What is wrong with people in the USA. I’m not narrow minded and I would be a hypocrite if I condemned casual sex, but FFS why can’t people use condoms when they are meeting up with a total stranger from out of town. It ought to be a no brainer. Why would someone who has a dose spread it in their own community where people might recognise them when they can with almost complete anonymity ‘share it’ on Facebook.

Racism – The English Language For Lefties Lessons Keep Rolling Out

It seems a lot of educated people in the blogosphere and on facebook and other social media were as pissed off as I was with those semi literate, politically correct, brainwashed idiots who tried to shout down intelligent discussion by screaming ‘racist’ or ‘bigot’ at anyone who disagreed with them.

These people, knowing that one of the main UK parties (the Liberal Democrats) campaigning on a globalist agenda platform in the European Parliament elections were heading for extinction while the others (Labour and Conservative) were simply treading water thanks to the Lib Dem vote collapsing, had no arguments, no policies, only blind rabid hatred of anyone who disagreed with their anti – British agenda.

In a post by longrider which is really a plug for an article by Allison Pearson on a generation so indoctrinated with politically correct ideology they think intelligent debate consists of the Fascist tactic of screaming pejorative insults at opponents.

Sadly I noticed people older that the teens / early twenties here who are afflicted with the same disease.

What in my view made the point most strongly on that Longrider posts was a comment from Stonyground:

“Who is it who has brainwashed these children so that they believe that racism, rather than being prejudice against people because of their race, is simply failing to use approved terminology when referring to race related matters?”

I can tell him that on my fiends list at Facebook and in this community, the people screaming loudest were schoolteachers. Is it any wonder our schools are turning out pupils who are illiterate when their teacher are illiterate?
