Mark Zuckerberg Scolds those Who Favor “Slowing Immigration”

facebook screenshotMark Zuckerberg was the keynote speaker at Facebook’s annual developers’ conference in San Francisco. Zuckerberg used the occasion to scold those who do not share his vision of a borderless world. “As I look around and I travel around the world, I’m starting to see people and nations turning inward, against this idea of a connected world and a global community. I hear fearful voices calling for building walls and distancing people they label as ‘others.’ For blocking free expression, for slowing immigration, reducing trade and, in some cases around the world, even cutting access to the Internet,” he said.

Zuckerberg is one of the leading financiers of the effort to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and opening America’s doors to virtually anyone in the “global community.”

Of course, Zuckerberg’s views about his own community and how near he wants be to ‘others’ is a very different matter. In 2013, the tech blog site,, noted that Zuckerberg spent $30 million to buy up the properties adjacent to his Palo Alto home “because of his increasing concern about privacy…With the impulsive purchase of the four houses made by Mark, this is just a clear indication that he does not want anyone coming over in his place and go looking at him at any time of the day. By buying the four houses closest to his present abode, he has made it possible to avoid the situation.”

From the perspective of a billionaire, in “a connected world and a global community” our country’s doors should always be open…just so long as no one gets the idea that it’s okay to pop by the Zuckerbergs’ house to borrow a cup of sugar.

    Our Country is in TERRIBLE CONDITION

    The high techs like FACEBOOK need American high school students to do computer programming, and pretends they need engineers and America has the wrong type….THE WORLD HAS THE WRONG TYPE TOO. Engineers don’t do computer programming, its not taught in college. They just want cheap H-1Bs!

    Then they blame Trump for not being able to get delegates controlled by this same lying establishment. They HATE TRUMP….the ant-Trump delegates are mainly all establishment Cruz supporters and most Republicans acknowledge this fact…Outsiders are banned!

    listen to a first hand account of a resident of Calais France who received thousands of these “refugees” IT’S NOT GOOD —

    also ask Mr. Z about purchasing all the homes around his so he COULD CONTROL HIS NEIGHBORHOOD — why are we letting these liberals who are hell bent on transforming this country into a 3rd world country get away with it??????

    I dare Zuckerberg to fly to Lavon TX to tell the widow of Peter Hacking that face to face. Hacking and his 2 children were killed in a violent crash when illegal alien Margarito Quintero swerved head on into their car. Quintero had already been deported once before in 2008. Hacking’s two children killed in the crash were 4 yrs old and 22 month old. Additionally, Hacking was a volunteer firefighter. This country lost a man who lived to serve others without payment by the hands of an illegal alien piece of garbage. And a wife lost her husband and her two dear children.

    Zuckerberg is a huge hypocrite. He chooses to live in very expensive Palo Alto, not in the crime-ridden neighborhoods where the illegal aliens and refugees live that he claims to love so much. He also won’t be sending his children to the same declining schools where the children of illegals and refugees go.

    Yet he condescendingly looks down up the millions of Americans in favor of border security who can’t afford to live somewhere like Palo Alto in order to insulate themselves from the worst effects of the open borders policies Zuckerberg is using his wealth and power to foist upon them. What a hypocrite.

      Same thing with Bill Gates. The guy lives in a huge mega mansion on his own island and preaches for more immigration. Michael Bloomberg lives in a 20 million plus apartment in New York and tells overcrowded New Yorkers that immigration has nothing to do with soaring rents.

      South Florida is now the worst metro market in the nation for rent, compounded by low wages. Never mind the fact that half the Caribbean has moved there. California the same. San Francisco residents need over a 100,000 income to afford decent housing. I saw a poll a couple weeks ago where half of Californians said illegal immigration was a “serious” problem, but, naturally, they opposed deporting those illegals by wide margins. Stuck on stupid.

        I also find it ironic that Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg has become the big self proclaimed guru of advising American women on how to get ahead in their careers since writing the book Lean In. But how can American women get great jobs and have exciting careers if supposedly “American” companies like Facebook want to hire as many lower wage citizens of foreign countries as possible? Just another tech exec hypocrite.

    He talks about “cutting access to the internet”? That’s pretty hypocritical because he was overheard on a mic having a conversation with German leader Angela Merkel last September, in which she pressed him on removing “racist comments” from Facebook and asked if he was “working on that”. And he replied “yeah”.

    The problem is that too many countries in Europe criminalize “hate speech”, whether it’s true or not. Merely to be seen as criticizing another group is hate speech to a lot of people. Remember the Benghazi attack, and how many blamed the producer of that ridiculous movie about Mohammed? I saw many a comment online from Americans about how he should be prosecuted. They say “of course we have free speech…but”. No, there are no qualifiers. Just like lots of people said the French cartoonists deserved what they got.

    How many examples have we seen in the press of FAIR being described as a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, based on nothing more than FAIR calling for reduced immigration. I’ve been reading that applications for admission to the University of Missouri have plummeted because many whites are not applying because all they see is a school that wants to cast them as racists guilty of “micro aggressions” who need to give minorities “safe spaces”. Never mind that so many “racist” incidents turn out to be something else on closer examination.

        I guess you can’t process two thoughts at the same time. It doesn’t matter who he was referring to about “cutting access to the internet”. What China and other similar countries do is censoring. Just like he wants to censor speech he doesn’t like, whether it’s factual or not. Therefore he’s a hypocrite.
