Facebook’s Zuckerberg Says Protests That Violate Stay-at-home Orders Are “Harmful Misinformation”
Mark Zuckerberg on Monday told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that protests of stay-at-home orders that violate state social distancing rules organized through his social media platform qualify as “harmful misinformation” and will be taken down.
“How do you deal with the fact that Facebook is now being used to organize a lot of these protests to defy social distancing guidelines in states?” the “Good Morning America” anchor asked Zuckerberg. “If somebody trying to organize something like that, does that qualify as harmful misinformation?”
“We do classify that as harmful misinformation and we take that down,” Zuckerberg said. “At the same time, it’s important that people can debate policies, so there’s a line on this, you know, more than normal political discourse. I think a lot of the stuff that people are saying that is false around a health emergency like this can be classified as harmful misinformation.”

Translation: I don’t like this speech, so I’m going to terminate it.

So wrong that Zuckerberg’s opinion is now Facebook’s policy. This is totally opposite the words in the US Constitution. As much as I hate gov. regulations he must be reigned in.

His use of the rights contained in the First Amendment allowed him to become a billionaire. Now he’s decided to shred it because it’s not fitting his personal narrative. How speshul he must be.

Regardless of whether you agree with protestors or not surely both sides have the right to their own opinion and free speech. These big organisations are becoming more like the globalist thought police by the day.

What happened to free speech and our constitutional rights? That’s fine cause Garrett Soldano has started a twitter and Instagram account so there are other means to organize.
