Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp, has been ridiculed with an ingenious comparison by Elon Musk, the world’s richest person.
Musk is seeking to take over Twitter much to the horror of wokeist Marxists.
Musk Threatens the Woke Censorship of Big Tech
Musk’s well-placed criticism of Zuckerberg came against the backdrop of the former’s $43 billion offer to buy out Twitter with the promise of introducing balanced freedom of speech.
Musk has long voiced his dissatisfaction with the far-left censorship on Twitter and described himself as a “free speech absolutist.”
Elon Musk also directly accused Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg of wielding excessive control over public debates on the platforms.
Musk, who earlier this week acquired a 9% stake in Twitter for the price of $3 billion, made it clear that his takeover bid wasn’t about “making money.”
It’s about seeking to protect freedom of speech and democracy, as cited by The Daily Mail.
Musk defended against criticism that having control over Twitter could sow doubts and suspicion. Instead, he declared his goal is to make Twitter far more open in terms of freedom of speech.
None of those folks losing their minds over Musk buying Twitter had a problem with Zuckerberg spending over $400 million interfering in American elections. pic.twitter.com/SBvAuZoL7m

Elon Musk mocks Mark Zuckerberg the 'Sun King' for his total power over Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram https://t.co/N7MnQFrmmU

Zuckerberg the Sun King of Facebook
It is in this regard that Musk lambasted “Mark Zuckerberg owning Facebook” and the other platforms of Meta, whose “share ownership structure” allows him to be “Mark Zuckerberg the 14th”.
Musk doubled down on his criticism of “Zuckerberg the Sun King” of Facebook, laughing and adding, “like, literally.”
The Tesla founder further promised “we won’t have that” when he takes over Twitter, which remains among the most powerful social media networks.
The world’s richest person declared he would like to retain the maximum number of Twitter shareholders. This is instead of dominating it the way Mark Zuckerberg dominates Facebook and all the other platforms he developed.
Zuckerberg, who has by now become a highly controversial figure, owns directly 12.8% of Facebook’s parent company, Meta.
Amid his witty criticism of the Facebook Sun King, Musk made it clear he would like to change Twitter’s algorithm towards being more open-source. He would rather make mistakes in favor of freedom of speech, instead of in favor of censorship.
In his words, if a tweet is in a “gray area,” he would rather leave it be. “Let the speech exist whenever in doubt,” Musk stated.
He blasted “permanent bans”, favoring “timeouts” instead, and said the social media should be “very reluctant to delete things.”
Musk and Zuckerberg have been at one another’s throats since at least 2014, particularly diverging over artificial intelligence.
The Facebook boss has been outraged by Musk’s warnings over the threats of AI, while the latter has famously said, “Mark’s understanding” of the AI subject “is limited”.
Mark Zuckerberg put up $500 million to interfere in a presidential election.
Elon Musk is putting up 100 times as much to save democracy.
It is a testament to the insanity of our times that Zuckerberg is heralded as a hero while Elon is vilified.

If Soros can buy the White House & Zuckerberg can buy the State House,
then Musk can buy Twitter

Elon Musk possibly buying Twitter pales in comparison to the amount of irreparable damage Mark Zuckerberg has done with Facebook.
