Mark Zuckerberg not only lies about protecting free speech while censoring anyone that is conservative or even remotely right-leaning that supports Trump, but he also lies to try and rewrite the history of his company’s founding.
Not on our watch king of bullshit. Not on our watch.
Zuckerberg once again insisted that Facebook was born to give “everyone a voice” in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Yes, he’s actually running with that crap.
Here’s what the lying little worm claims:
When I was in college, our country had just gone to war in Iraq. The mood on campus was disbelief. It felt like we were acting without hearing a lot of important perspectives. The toll on soldiers, families and our national psyche was severe, and most of us felt powerless to stop it. I remember feeling that if more people had a voice to share their experiences, maybe things would have gone differently. Those early years shaped my belief that giving everyone a voice empowers the powerless and pushes society to be better over time.
Back then, I was building an early version of Facebook for my community, and I got to see my beliefs play out at smaller scale.
The king of BS is implying Facebook was a manifestation of his belief that giving people a voice would make the world a better place.
Except that isn’t true. Not even one little bit.
Zuckerberg seems to imply that 1) the Iraq War was an inspiration for Facebook and 2) Facebook may have prevented it? pic.twitter.com/u8QhscW5Ez

Facebook’s origin story is very well documented and a rather unflattering one at that.
For those not aware, the development of TheFacebook followed on from Mark Zuckerberg’s creation of a “Hot or Not” clone called Facemash, which stole Harvard students’ photos from an online directory and then asked other students to rank the respective hotness of those pictured.
Oh didn’t you know? Zuckerberg is a sleasebag as well. Oof, that red pill hits you hard doesn’t it? The #MeToo cancel mob missed this one.
A contemporaneous report by Harvard’s student newspaper, the Crimson, laid it all out in clear detail.
“The site was created entirely by Zuckerberg over the last week in October after a friend gave him the idea,” reads the 2003 article. “The website used photos compiled from the online facebooks of nine Houses, placing two next to each other at a time and asking users to choose the ‘hotter’ person.”
Now, King of BS Zuckerberg repeatedly claims that Facemash was totally separate from Facebook.
“The claim that Facemash was somehow connected to the development of Facebook… it isn’t, it wasn’t,” he told Congress in 2018.

Nice try your fullofshitness.
“Like,” Business Insider reports Zuckerberg as writing to his friend Adam D’Angelo just before the launch of TheFacebook.com, “I don’t think people would sign up for the facebook thing if they knew it was for dating.”
Of his notorious decision to delay working on a competitor’s social network dubbed Harvard Connection so that he could get TheFacebook up in time?
“I’m going to fuck them,” Business Insider reports him as telling a friend.
Even Zuckerberg himself has, in the past, provided a sanitized retelling of his justification for launching Facebook that had nothing to do with the lofty claims he made today.
“Ten years ago,” CNBC reports him as telling Freakonomics Radio in 2018, “you know, I was just trying to help connect people at colleges and a few schools.”
Every time Zuckerberg speaks you can see the BS pouring out of his mouth ‘no we don’t suppress political views’ he claims. BULLSHIT.
‘I started Facebook to give people a voice.’ BULLSHIT.
The mainstream media does a really crappy job when they interview the king of BS. Just like that soft interview on Fox the other day. Man up MSM and start calling him out for what he is, a little worm that lies and censors people for no reason.
The MSM is a joke. In fact, most news outlets are soft on this little worm. Not us, raw, real and truthfully is our motto and we actually stick to it.
