Mark Zuckerberg Says That Social Media Giant Facebook Will Continue To Give A Voice To Holocaust Deniers

Facebook has been in damage control mode since it emerged that Russian Hackers exploited the platform and that Cambridge Analytica, British-based political consultancy that worked for the Donald Trump 2016 presidential campaign, obtained the data of millions users of the popular social media site. In April, Zuckerberg vowed before congress that his company would combat both hate speech and fake news, but his Wednesday interview all but contradicts that sentiment.

Facebook will continue to serve as a platform for conspiracy pushers and hoax peddlers, like Holocaust deniers and Sandy Hook truthers, because banning them would go against the social media site’s core mission of “giving people a voice.”

On one hand, it’s almost admirable that Mark Zuckerberg said he will continue to allow Holocaust deniers to have a forum on Facebook to spread their ignorant revisionist history. Free speech and all that, right? Yeah, but you’ll have to forgive me for not celebrating Zuckerberg’s dubious application of our First Amendment right.

The reason is because, as a publisher of Bible teaching articles and news from a Christian perspective, I use Facebook as my primary tool to share my articles with people around the world. I don’t ever publish clickbait or articles that have no basis in the truth just to get readers. But Facebook, in their algorithmic wisdom, will revoke my posting privileges multiple times per month every month because they do not approve of my content. The Bible teaching and the Christian-based news. Hmm…

Recently, Facebook deemed a post to be hate speech and banned it. The content? The Declaration of Independence. A few months ago it was revealed that Facebook is launching a algorithm that will block Christian and Conservative postings, just in time for the 2018 Midterm elections.

But articles that continue to spread provable lies about the Nazi Holocaust that killed 6 million Jews? That’s what Mark Zuckerberg says needs to be protected by our First Amendment. Want an example of what Zuckerberg says should be protected? How about a video from hate-filled antisemite Steven Anderson  purporting that Jewish Holocaust survivors are ‘paid liars’?

What kind of Jew are you, Mark Zuckerberg? I would love to ask you that, but I think I already know the answer.

FROM NY DAILY NEWS: CEO Mark Zuckerberg during a 90-minute interview published on Recode Wednesday afternoon defended his company’s decision to allow such groups to remain on Facebook, saying he does not believe his company should be responsible for removing questionable content because it can not determine whether a post’s intention is to mislead.

“Let’s take this closer to home. I’m Jewish, and there’s a set of people who deny that the Holocaust happened,” the 34-year-old billionaire said. “I find that deeply offensive. But at the end of the day, I don’t believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different people get wrong. I don’t think they’re intentionally getting it wrong.”

His interviewer, Recode’s editor-at-large Kara Swisher, at that point interjected to let him know misleading an audience may be the exact aim of Holocaust deniers.

The Anti-Defamation League also later echoed the sentiment: ““Holocaust denial is a willful, deliberate and longstanding deception tactic by anti-Semites … Facebook has a moral and ethical obligation not to allow its dissemination.”

But Zuckerberg continued: “I think the reality is also that I get things wrong when I speak publicly. I’m sure you do. I’m sure a lot of leaders and public figures we respect do too, and I just don’t think that it is the right thing to say, ‘We’re going to take someone off the platform if they get things wrong, even multiple times.’” READ MORE
