Attending a luncheon on the sidelines of a United Nations development summit in New York on Saturday, Merkel and Zuckerberg were overheard on a live transmission broadcast on the UN website as participants took their seats.

After Merkel confronted Zuckerberg about anti-migrant posts, the Facebook CEO is heard responding that “we need to do some work” on the issue.

Ha!

This is so typical of the elites. They control policy, they control the media, they control the culture — but they can’t control the people. And this makes them crazy. If they could, they would change the people.

Hitler tried to do that.

The truth is that almost all of my readers connect on Facebook. it is the individual’s media arm — I dislike Facebook’s business practices, but they are essential to the work. The only media telling the truth about the Muslim invasion in Europe is websites like mine, and Facebook is key to distribution. So you aren’t following me on Facebook — like this page, share the posts. It’s difficult. They block us, ban us, etc. Surf the wave. Shuck and jive. We are building an army.

Take, for example, this post — the media would never report this horror.

This is worrisome:

Earlier this month, Facebook vowed to clean up what it deemed was racist content on the German version of its website. At the time, the social network said it would partner with a non profit group to oversee hate postings.

Who decides what’s hate? “Hate speech” is a subjective category. There is no agreed-upon type of speech that everyone recognizes as “hate speech.” The label “hate speech” is used by certain parties in order to demonize and marginalize the speech of their opponents. The label “hate speech” can all too easily become a tool in the hands of the powerful, of tyrants, to silence those who are standing for freedom.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was overheard confronting Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over incendiary posts on the social network, Bloomberg reported on Sunday, amid complaints from her government about anti-immigrant posts in the midst of Europe’s refugee crisis.

On the sidelines of a United Nations luncheon on Saturday, Merkel was caught on a hot mic pressing Zuckerberg about social media posts about the wave of Syrian refugees entering Germany, the publication reported.

The Facebook CEO was overheard responding that “we need to do some work” on curtailing anti-immigrant posts about the refugee crisis. “Are you working on this?” Merkel asked in English, to which Zuckerberg replied in the affirmative before the transmission was disrupted.

In recent weeks, hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees have washed up on Europe’s shores, seeking asylum from the raging civil war in their homeland. As Europe’s largest economy, Germany has sheltered the majority of them, leading to widespread objections within the country.

Earlier this month, Facebook vowed to clean up what it deemed was racist content on the German version of its website. At the time, the social network said it would partner with a non profit group to oversee hate postings.

Yet any action from Facebook is likely to stoke concerns about free speech. In the past, the social network has come under suspicion for suppressing or deleting posts and groups that advocate unpopular beliefs.

Bloomberg’s full report can be found on its website.
