Facebook has been much in the news lately over the way they have played fast and loose with our private information. They are certainly not alone. There is another issue that also has me concerned. CEO Mark Zuckerberg shares it.
Silicon Valley is overwhelmingly liberal. At times their bias is showing. Some pro-choice organizations have a hard time getting their ads place. A church’s ad was recently denied because of the violent imagery. The ad showed a crucifix. Bans on hate speech only apply to conservatives. A conservative comedian was recently kicked off Facebook. Those that threatened his life can stay. Apparently, death threats are fine if the target is right of center. There are a number of other examples.
This is part of a growing trend by the Left to Silence the Right. All opinions should be heard in the marketplace of ideas. We should all cherish the rights given to us in the First Amendment and not try to stifle those holding different views.
