That’s what that icon of the Left, Juan Williams, says.
The reality is that [Facebook CEO Mark] Zuckerberg doesn’t seem to understand, from my perspective, that he’s undermining his brand by allowing political lies to be put on his platform. That, to me, lessens the trust that the consumer has.
Because censoring speech—especially politically speech—is the way to win the hearts and minds and trust of the consumer.
Certainly, controlling speech and allowing only that which the Left approves—what Juan Williams personally approves—can be a tool for winning controlling the hearts and minds of citizens, but trust? No. Censorship destroys trust.
But, hey—the Left doesn’t approve. Juan Williams doesn’t approve. That makes it all OK.
Williams had this gem, too, accusing folks who disagree with him on this—Conservatives—of flip flopping:
I remember when the right was always on Facebook, “Oh, you’re trying to silence…conservatives.” Now it’s like, “Oh, yeah, put Trump’s lies there, please.”
Because objecting to censorship is flip floppery. And that last bit: the Right Reverend Juan Williams is the arbiter of lies, distortions, and facts because us ordinary Americans are just too grindingly stupid to make the discriminations for ourselves.
This is another example of the Left’s—the Progressives’—utter contempt for those who don’t agree with them.
