Zuckerberg’s Vaccine Hypocrisy

The Facebook CEO was caught saying what are now unapproved things.

If you oppose or even question the COVID vaccines on Facebook, you are under threat of content removal or perhaps suspension. Just last week, Facebook announced, “We are expanding efforts to remove false claims on Facebook and Instagram about COVID-19, COVID-19 vaccines and vaccines in general during the pandemic.” Specifically, Facebook will remove content including “claims that the COVID-19 vaccine changes people’s DNA.”

So imagine our surprise to see a prominent Facebook user saying unapproved things: “I share some caution on this [vaccine], because we just don’t know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people’s DNA and RNA.”

That user was Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and his July comments were just released by Project Veritas thanks to a Facebook “insider.”

Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe humorously wonders if Facebook will ban his video showing Zuckerberg violating current Facebook policy. (As we go to press this morning, it’s still available there.)

O'Keefe also notes that in November, Zuckerberg made the opposite claim when talking to the all-knowing Dr. Anthony Fauci: “My understanding is that these vaccines do not modify your DNA or RNA.”

The issue isn’t that Zuckerberg might have changed his mind after learning new information. It’s that his platform claims to want to foster the ability for people to “discuss, debate and share their personal experiences, opinions and news related to the COVID-19 pandemic” — while prohibiting much of that very discussion and debate.

Every American, regardless of your stance on vaccines, or elections, or the science on “transgendered” individuals, or a host of other controversial topics, should want to have a true town square to debate the issues. Yet Facebook, led by Zuckerberg, frequently aims to prohibit one side from having a voice in those debates. Perhaps that authoritarian streak is just in Zuck’s DNA.
