On Tuesday the New York Times reported on Facebook engineers admitting to the companyâ€™s bias.
Zerohedge picked up on the fact that Facebook engineers â€œtear down posters welcoming Trump supporters.â€
According to a memo posted on Facebookâ€™s internal message board titled â€œWe Have a Problem With Political Diversityâ€, and which was published by the New York Times, senior Facebook engineer Brian Amerige confirmed Trumpâ€™s allegation writing that â€œwe are a political monoculture thatâ€™s intolerant of different viewsâ€ and shockingly admitted that â€œwe claim to welcome all perspectives, but are quick to attack â€” often in mobs â€” anyone who presents a view that appears to be in opposition to left-leaning ideology. We throw labels that end in *obe and *ist at each other, attacking each otherâ€™s character rather than their ideas.â€
The scathing indictment of Facebookâ€™s liberal â€œmono-cultureâ€ continues:
We do this so consistently that employees are afraid to say anything when they disagree with whatâ€™s around them politically.â€‹ HR has told me that this is not a rare concern, and Iâ€™ve personally gotten over a hundred messages to that effect. Your colleagues are afraid because they know that they â€” not their ideas â€” will be attacked. They know that all the talk of â€œopenness to different perspectivesâ€ does not apply to causes of â€œsocial justice,â€ immigration, â€œdiversityâ€, and â€œequality.â€ On this issues, you can either keep quiet or sacrifice your reputation and career.
â€œThese are not fears without causeâ€ Amerige writes, and continues the stunning disclosure of the companyâ€™s biased culture, â€œBecause we tear down posters welcoming Trump supporters. We regularly propose removing Thiel from our board because he supported Trump. Weâ€™re quick to suggest firing people who turn out to be misunderstood, and even quicker to conclude our colleagues are bigots. We have made â€œAll Lives Matterâ€ a fireable offense.
