Taking away free speech because you don’t agree with someone’s politics isn’t very American. Don’t tell that to Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg though. He’s too busy showing off his extreme “patriotism” via his own social media platform, Instagram.
On Sunday, Zuckerberg shared a post of him celebrating the Fourth of July. In the post, he can be seen riding around a lake on an electric hydrofoil surfboard while holding the American flag — you know, the same flag he does such a good job representing on a day-to-day basis (insert eyeroll emoji).
The strangest part? The Instagram post was layered with John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” as the soundtrack with “Happy July 4” as the caption. Check it out:
Look, in most cases, this post would be awesome, a top shelf social media post celebrating America’s independence and freedom. But this is Zuckerberg we’re talking about here, and he’s about as un-American as it gets.
His platforms silence certain voices, and we all know why. Facebook and Instagram both lean heavy left, and they want those with a voice on their platforms to do the same. But sure, I guess he looks cool holding that American flag. I just wish he’d do more to uphold the values it represents.
I do wonder if he’s going to get canceled over the post though. Remember, the “woke” crowd wants us hating America and everything that stands as a symbol for America. To those people, Zuckerberg’s video is supposed to be a big no-no. Just saying.
