#GOPDebate Brought to You by The Manipulators at Facebook: #TeaVsTreeVsReality
August 9, 2015
Outside of the obvious sociopathic parade that was Fox News’ #GOPDebate which not only looked like it was filmed on the set of “Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader,” there’s the distrubing fact that unethical Facebook, known for psychological mood manipulation testing, without shame, remorse, guilt or accountability was another candidate on stage.

Mark Zuckerberg & Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook’s executive staff were last year under fire for conducting mood manipulation studies on Facebook users without their knowledge for the company’s own benefit. This manipulation of the facts while not recognizing the rights of others is problematic as we head towards an election year for several reasons: Rand Paul met with Mark Zuckerberg:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) reportedly had meetings with two top Silicon Valley billionaires at Allen & Company’s Sun Valley conference in Idaho.
In his Playbook newsletter Sunday, Politico’s Mike Allen reported Paul, who is considering a presidential bid in 2016, “had private sit-downs with the investor Peter Thiel and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg” while at the conference. Allen described Paul’s presence at the confab as “another sign of how far he has come since his insurgent victory as a Tea Party torch-bearer.”
Zuckerberg’s manipulation of facts regarding mood manipulation testing and Christie’s manipulation of facts regarding Bridgegate make for two people we shouldn’t want any where near politics, let alone manipulating political debates or possible election outcomes. #TeaVsTreeVsReality this is something every taxpayer should be concerned about:
Sheryl Sandberg, the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, whose 2013 book Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead helped ignite a new chapter in the national conversation on female leadership and so-called work/family balance, has thrown her support behind Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former secretary of state who earlier this month announced that she is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
There are already enough unethical people in politics we don’t need the likes of Zuckerberg & Sandberg with their pathological history of unethical behavior influencing votes via the highest bidder or however it benefits Facebook best at our expense.
