Soros Continues Push against Zuckerberg and Facebook, But His Target Is the President
Feb. 18, 2020 (EIRNS)—Today’s Financial Times carries a letter from George Soros demanding that Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg be canned as executives of Facebook due to what he calls a conspiracy to re-elect Donald Trump. Soros originally made this demand back in January of 2020 in the New York Times. Those who have followed this story closely know that Facebook embedded with the 2016 Trump Campaign—an offer to use their digital tools which they also made to Hillary Clinton. Clinton told Facebook forget about it, she already knew all about it, as with all things. Trump’s digital director, Brad Parscale welcomed Facebook in and credits the use of this tool with significant aspects of Trump’s 2016 victory.
As a result, Zuckerberg and Facebook were immediately targeted as tools of Russian propaganda and required to hire an army of censors lest the company itself be vaporized. Zuckerberg has drawn a line by continuing to allow Facebook political ads in 2020 with minimal or little censorship. This is the major tool used effectively by Trump in 2016. By contrast, Google and Twitter have responded to those seeking to wipe out Trump’s ability to communicate with his supporters by banning all political advertising from their platforms.
