Just as the George Floyd case was really starting to rile up the rioters, Zuckerberg came out in open condemnation of Twitter, likening the platform's behavior to a tyrant trying to be an "arbiter of truth." Unlike Facebook, Twitter has now decided to "fact-check" Trump's content, which is a first for Big Tech.
"We have a different policy than, I think, Twitter on this," Zuckerberg is quoted as saying during a recent segment on Fox News' "The Daily Briefing."
"I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn't be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online," Zuckerberg added. "Private companies probably shouldn't be, especially these platform companies, shouldn't be in the position of doing that."
Zuckerberg's statements followed an announcement by Trump on Twitter that he would be pursuing the platform for exhibiting "clear political bias."
"Twitter is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election," Trump wrote in a follow-up tweet after he was "fact-checked."
"They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post."
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, warns that there cannot be legitimate elections this fall without free speech:
With the direction Twitter has been going lately, it is a bit of a shock that the platform did not "fact-check" one of Trump's latest tweets about 75-year-old Martin Gugino, the protester who supposedly cracked his skull on the cement after an encounter with police in Buffalo, New York.
Trump tweeted that Gugino might be an Antifa provocateur because he was seen carrying black-out equipment that appears to have been meant to interfere with police communications. Trump also pointed out that Gugino "fell harder than he was pushed," and suggested that the whole thing could have been a set up.
Since even the official George Floyd narrative is questionable at best, it would hardly be a surprise to learn that the Gugino incident was also staged. It is interesting that whoever just so happened to be filming Gugino's encounter with police conveniently did not capture the man's fall as it happened, among other anomalies.
By all appearances, Gugino was probably a crisis actor who was in just the right place at just the right time to grab the next round of mainstream media headlines suggesting that all cops are evil monsters who go around splitting open old people's skulls for fun.
That Twitter has thus far left Trump's "conspiracy theory" tweet about Gugino alone could be related to Zuckerberg's chastising of the company over its interference with Trump's earlier tweets. Or perhaps the censors are simply unable to come up with a formidable rebuttal to Trump's suggestions.
Whatever the case may be, it is becoming painfully obvious that more and more people are simply not buying the fairy tales that the mainstream media is telling them. Try as they might to control the narrative, the information gatekeepers can only go so far with their "fact-checks" before they out themselves as propagandists.
"As we're discovering more and more by the day, every narrative pushed by the Left is a fraud," warns Adams. "Every 'victim' of police brutality, it seems, is a crisis actor. And every viral video that spreads like wildfire across social media turns out to be a lie."
