25. Shorter speeches of his have been elsewhere

I haven't seen his movies, nor do I plan to. Oh, I like low humor as much as the next person, I just didn't think I'd like Borat all that much from clips, too many pranks and I hate pranks.

However, I've long known that behind those movies was a very bright man with a good grasp of history.

I'll embrace Borat before I'll give Facebook any of my time. Their business model is predatory in the extreme and their standards aren't just low, they've allowed themselves to become a danger to this country by allowing enemies both foreign and domestic to abuse the service, both disseminating propaganda and allowing data mining to target it.

30. Check out The Trial of the Chicago 7 if you don't like Borat movies. (I don't either.)

He plays a wonderful Abbie Hoffman.

36. I'm in several groups that use it to get information out.

We use it to get volunteers for voter information booths. We use it to spread factual information about candidates,causes, ballot amendments,etc. We've live streamed town halls for local candidates. We receive several messages through messenger every day from people wanting to know where our headquarters is or how much a yard sign costs.

Facebook sucks. I know for fact. I'm on a 3 day ban for calling someone a walnut who threatened to sodomize me. Right now Facebook is the place where we have more public contact for our local races than any other site. It just is.

40. Do we leave out an entire segment of the population?

Find me another way.

We've had more interaction this past year with new members. They didn't use our Twitter account or our Instagram. They found us on Facebook. Every day someone is messaging us,asking for more information.

We do lots of voter outreach. Right now Facebook is part of it. You reach out where there are people to hear the message. Leaving one large platform off is ridiculous, especially since it's where we have the most interaction including with our state party.

37. Our local Dems still use it

Because the majority of people use it. It's the quickest way to get out the message.

I'll use this example we're dealing with right now. In Missouri we have Amendment 3 on the ballot. In 2018 the citizens passed CLEAN, which offered several steps towards fighting and rewriting heavily gerrymandered districts in state. Our GOP supermajority actually overturned an amendment that passed with 63%, stating the average person didn't understand and it would give all the power to St Louis and KC. (It doesn't.) Amendment 3 would make what the GOP wants into law and would actually change the state constitution. It is written in such a way where even a state court technically couldn't overturn the decision. It would also count a state census as one vote=on person. This would allow them to not count children, non residents or even unregistered voters when the draw new districts.

Now that I've explained this you can see how important it is to get people out to vote and to vote NO. The past 2 weeks we've had state senators and state reps on their pages and in all their local groups telling everyone to vote yes. They are dishonest in how they answer questions and everything they say is vote yes. Want to keep power out of the cities? Vote yes. Keep CLEAN? Vote yes. Etc. Voting yes does the opposite.

If there weren't posters from various groups in those local Facebook groups countering all the misinformation with well cited facts we'd only have one side heard. The wording of the amendment is purposely vague as Ashcroft III wanted so it's understandable why it's hard to figure it out. Once the information is presented several unsure voters have stated they will vote against it.

Look, Facebook sucks but right now it's the number one news source for millions and they vote. To abandon it completely would be disastrous,especially in local and state elections.

As in awe of that speech. That is how our leaders should present themselves. More please. No more trumps, Gohmerts, Gaetzís and other idiots that get put in power by cash. That is the type of amount of mind that should lead a world power. Bravo! Amount of intellect, not cash, should determine those we chose to lead us.

He comes from a land where a majority of elected officials are reasonable.

Not so much everywhere else.

on Judd Apatow's twitter and I was very impressed with what he said about Fakebook and our current situation. Fuckerberg is killing societies that believe in a fact based democracy...all for his greedy profits. I never belonged to Fakebook and never will.

45. Yes I watched it...

.... Folks who advocate regulating political speech seem to imagine that they, or folks like them, will be doing the regulating. After Trump I think it should be evident that that is not going to be the case. Those of us who are liberal and progressive will be the first to get shut down. We will not be the winners.

This should be especially evident to someone who specializes in the sort of over the top, salacious political satire that he does. And promotes through social media. His head will be on the chopping block post haste. This is why I think that, more than just naÔve, he is being a fool.
