I say MASSACRE because it was a total joke. Dorsey and Zuckerberg massacred Congress. Again. What I saw of the senate hearings yesterday with FB and Twitter’s presidents was outrageously hilarious.
Our senators are just not up to it. Except, maybe Cruz, who’s pretty tough and so right.
Connecticut’s Senator Blumenthal (who I find even more loathsome than Pelosi and Schumer together) took the opportunity, while supposedly questioning Dorsey and Zuckerberg, to condemn Trump for LYING on Twitter. So did Senators Whitehouse and Durbin. Probably more, I just couldn’t watch the whole thing.
ZUCKERBERG AND DORSEY are JUST TOO SMART FOR ALL THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS BUT HAWLEY AND CRUZ, in my opinion. If you were a Democrat watching this, you’d be having a BLAST! As a Republican, I was cringing.
Here are some ways the presidents obfuscated the truth:
They kept mentioning “IF THERE WAS TERRORISM….we could help connect people” Thankfully terrorism doesn’t happen too often, so WHAT?
Zuckerberg must have mentioned child trafficking 10 times. WHY? We’re talking censorship here, that’s the important thing..but people here CHILD and that becomes important! Not saying it isn’t, but…really?
Both presidents also mentioned “I’ll do a REPORT” You know how many REPORTS Twitter and FB has prepared? Anybody actually read them in the senate?
How Senator Lindsay Graham could actually talk about ADDICTION to FB and Twitter was amazing to me. SO WHAT? Addiction to these platforms? We should be talking CENSORSHIP HERE, LINDSAY! People are addicted to ice cream, you bringing Ben and Jerry into a hearing, LINDSAY? This gave a perfect foil behind which Twitter and FB could get off the censorship REALLY important point and hide.
Sen Graham did bring up the AYATOLLAH tweet Twitter left up as they took down President Trump’s stuff….but then it was gone! POOF!…on to ADDICTION? WHAT??
Blumenthal asked “How many times will you let Bannon call for the murder of Government Officials before you take that down..?” DID HE???
HOW ABOUT ASKING…MAY WE HAVE A LIST OF LEFTWING SITES OR POSTS YOU’VE REMOVED? WE’LL WAIT, THANKS.
FIREWORKS? I didn’t see any but FOX said “OH, big fireworks today”…Maybe they happened while I was dividing my time between watching and doing worthwhile things (like watching a favorite film of mine, THEY DRIVE BY NIGHT :-)!! HA!)
I LOVE JOE CONCHA! I’m listening to him now talking as if he was READING what I just wrote! I SWEAR! “They do all these things, have hearings, give examples…and NOTHING HAPPENS”
