BREAKING: ‘Oops,’ Said Faceberg

So lifelike.

It seems Facebook is recalculating its own culpability in supporting a mad man who tried to overthrow the gubmint:

Facebook extends Trump ban indefinitely over incitement of violence

President Trump is banned from posting on his Facebook and Instagram accounts for at least the next two weeks until the transition of power to President-elect Joe Biden is complete, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post Thursday.

Why it matters: It’s an extraordinary step for Facebook to take, given that the company has been one of the slowest to take action against the President’s account and has historically prioritized free speech, especially for world leaders.

Faceberg hisself:

“Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labeling his posts when they violate our policies. We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.

“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.

— Mark Zuckerberg

OK, Twitter, your turn.

    Zuck realizes that his crime spree with Trump is disappearing, so he has to get ready to switch loyalties to a new leadership. And Twitter should immediately delete his account permanently.

    “Johnny number 5 needs input…”

    “Yeah, he’s blocked indefinitely. Or for 2 weeks. A coupla days, anyways. Could be longer, I haven’t decided yet…”

        The technical aspect of signing up for such as Parler probably explains Jared’s presence in the family. LDN couldn’t hire someone to do it for him, they might have to tell him they had to correct an error he made in signing and that would be the end of that contract.
