Project Veritas releases new videos of Zuckerberg and Facebook execs admitting they have ‘Too Much Power’

Project Veritas released two new videos Sunday of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other Facebook executives admitting to using their power to censor political speech while encouraging partisan objectives.

Each video contains nearly an hour of footage that was made available to Project Veritas through a Facebook insider that is working with Veritas to expose the big tech company, according to the organization.

In a Jan. 7 question and answer video, big tech executives answered questions regarding the Capitol riot and Former President Donald Trump’s administration.

“It’s so important that our political leaders lead by example, make sure we put the nation first here, and what we’ve seen is that the president [Trump] has been doing the opposite of that…The president [Trump] intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power,” Zuckerberg said.

“[Trump’s] decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters in the Capitol I think has rightly bothered and disturbed people in the US and around the world,” Zuckerberg continued.

Zuckerberg then suggested that the Capitol protestors were treated differently than Black Lives Matter protesters.

“I know this is just a very difficult moment for a lot of us here, and especially our Black colleagues. It was troubling to see how people in this [Capitol] mob were treated compared to the stark contrast we saw during protests earlier this [past] year,” he said.

Facebook’s Vice President of Integrity Guy Rosen explained Facebook’s process of censoring hate speech on the platform.

“We have a system that is able to freeze commenting on threads in cases where our systems are detecting that there may be a thread that has hate speech or violence… these are all things we’ve built over the past three-four years as part of our investments into the integrity space our efforts to protect the election,” Rosen said.

“I’m grateful for all the work you and the teams are doing,” Zuckerberg replied to Rosen.

In a video recorded Jan. 21, Zuckerberg spoke about the Presidential Inauguration and praised President Biden’s speech.

“Yesterday was truly a historic day. The past few weeks have certainly been a very difficult time in our nation. But we got our new president. We also have the first woman and the first person of color as our vice president in the history of our country,” he said.

“The swearing in of Vice President Harris really stands as a reminder that despite the challenges that we are facing as a country, we all have so much to be proud of,” he added.

“I thought President Biden’s inaugural address was very good.”

Zuckerberg then commended Biden for the Executive Orders that were passed on his first day in office.

“In his first day, President Biden already issued a number of Executive Orders on areas that we as a company care quite deeply about and have for some time,” he said. “Areas like immigration, preserving DACA, ending restrictions on travel from Muslim-majority countries, as well as other Executive Orders on climate and advancing racial justice and equity. I think these were all important and positive steps.”

Facebook’s Head of Global Affairs Nick Clegg also addressed the backlash that the company received after Trump’s suspension from the platform.

“There has been quite a lot of disquiet expressed by many leaders around the world, from the President of Mexico to Alexei Navalny in Russia, and Chancellor Angela Merkel and others saying, ‘well this shows that private companies have got too much power…’ we agree with that,” Clegg said.

He continued, “Ideally, we wouldn’t be making these decisions on our own, we would be making these decisions in line with our own conformity, with democratically agreed rules and principles. At the moment, those democratically agreed rules don’t exist. We still have to make decisions in real-time.”

Pro-Defund the Police Gubernatorial Candidate has NYPD Detail, Lives on Military Base for ‘Affordability’

Jumaane Williams is ‘hypocritical’ for living on a secure military base, critics say

Hypocrisy is no stranger to Democrats, but New York gubernatorial candidate Jumaane Williams is sparking outrage over his. Williams, an outspoken advocate of defunding the police, is relying on…the police…to protect him as he runs for governor.

Williams not only travels with a detail of New York City’s NYPD officers, but he also lives on a military base. The military base also provides 24/7 security. Williams, a self-proclaimed racial justice advocate, was elected as the New York City public advocate in 2019 after serving on the NYC Council.

Williams lives on the Fort Hamilton U.S. Army Garrison in Brooklyn, where anyone requesting entry must submit a background check and go through security checkpoints. NYPD security detail travels with him each day, provided to him because of his position for the city.

Williams proudly describes himself as a Democratic Socialist, and his campaign website touts a vow to “bring transformational change to Albany.” When New York City agreed to cut the NYPD budget by $1 billion as a result of the defund the police movement, Williams said the cut was an insufficient amount.

To add insult to injury, Williams lives on the military base simply for its “affordability.” A representative for Williams told the New York Post “when he needed a new home for his family in 2019, they chose a publicly available unit in Fort Hamilton not because of its position on a base but because it offered the best unit for his family’s price point and criteria.”

An area official with knowledge of the base’s housing process told the Post “these aren’t apartments listed on Zillow. It’s essentially a gated community with stunning waterfront views protected by tanks and soldiers with M16s.”

Not only are our tax dollars, but also our police and military forces helping to protect and house a man who is actively working to undo it all with his liberal policies.
