PETE BUTTIGIEG IS NOW OFFICIALLY THE FACEBOOK CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT
So here’s a really interesting question. Why does Facebook love Democratic candidate for President, Pete Buttigieg? Because Facebook is an important giant in everyone’s reality. But maybe I should say Facebook is a huge giant impacting our understanding of reality. Mark Zuckerberg has gone to great pains in recent weeks telling us all how much they’re doing to protect our next election from outside influence. Or should I say misinformation? But at the same time, Facebook is making money placing political ads that are designed to lie to whoever sees them. So why Pete Buttigieg? Pete, what’s going on, here?
IF BUTTIGIEG IS FRIENDS WITH ZUCKERBERG, WILL FACEBOOK HELP HIM GET ELECTED?
Silicon valley has a lot of opinions when it comes to who should be the next President of the United States. Facebook has plans to actually sue the Federal government if Elizabeth Warren becomes the next POTUS. But that may have something to do with the fact that she wants to break up Facebook. You know, because of just a few antitrust issues. So Facebook has a major axe to grind about which candidates will help their….. cause. So again, why Pete Buttigieg? Well, everyone considers him to be a Centrist, politically. But being a Centrist these days sure sounds a lot like advocating unrestrained free-market capitalism and neoliberal goal posts.
BUTTIGIEG HIRED TWO CAMPAIGN STAFFERS ZUCKERBERG RECOMMENDED
So back in 2016, Mark Zuckerberg referred to Buttigieg as a “friend.” But to be fair, Centrist Pete was friends with two of Mark’s roommates at Harvard University. And now we know that both Zuckerberg and Facebook’s Priscilla Chan have recommended just a few candidates to work as campaign staff for Pete Buttigieg. So Pete hired two of them. One of them had worked for Facebook for at least 4 years. Buttigieg hired the two from a pile of over 2,000 resumes. So let’s pay attention to this one. Because if there’s any giant corporation that’s not related to energy production that we can’t trust, it’s Facebook. Thanks, Pete! With Centrists like you, who needs Republicans?
If Pete Buttigieg loves Facebook, can we trust him? Well, no. Not at all. And with good reason.
