Mark Zuckerberg Pimps Guns, Gun Groups, Gun Violence

School Shootings
are Good Business
for Mark Zuckerberg / Facebook

With each school shooting, new groups are created on Facebook (and groups generate revenue for Mark Zuckerberg and his investors)... groups for and against guns.

Arguably, people who love their guns are entitled to free speech... to having their groups.  

But why is Mark Zuckerberg / Facebook placing ads for guns and gun groups on the news feed pages of parents of children who've been through a school shooting.  What kind of psychopathic need is Mark Zuckerberg fulfilling for himself?  Clearly Mark Zuckerberg is incapable of empathy.  Worse... he imagines some sort of profit... some stack of money to appear in his hands from the grief, sorrow, and loss of others.

Mark Zuckerberg
Profit from Children's Blood

Although gun groups on Facebook are theoretically banned from selling weaponry, the truth is....  And the surreptitious sale of assault weapons on Facebook is profitable for Mark Zuckerberg.

New gun groups form on Facebook rather frequently.  Why does Facebook spotlight gun groups and give them free advertising on the news feed page?  There must be a dollar in it for Zuckerberg.

Mark Zuckerberg / Facebook promotes, Pimps, what seems like an infinite number of gun groups (perhaps some the creation of Russian Intelligence Services)

But Mark Zuckerberg
is not a warrior... no.
Mark Zuckerberg is a coward
who hides behind
(according to a reliable source)
$16 Million in Armed Guards
(paid for by Facebook,
so perhaps a federal tax violation
if Zuckerberg is not including
armed guards as a company benefit).

Is it time for San Mateo County, California,
to indict Mark Zuckerberg
for inciting violence?

Is it time for Menlo Park, California,
to disarm Zuckerberg's personal storm troopers?

Mark Zuckerberg profits from guns... 
makes a dollar from from school shootings.

Mark Zuckerberg... to be Indicted by Mueller?

Greed is so much fun!
Mark Zuckerberg
made a bundle of Rubles
from the Russians
as they fouled 
the 2016 Presidential Election.

When the Russians bought Facebook ads
to sow conflict and discord in America,
Mark Zuckerberg / Facebook
were paid in Russian Rubles.

It is disingenuous for Mark Zuckerberg
and other Facebook execuatives
to claim that they were perpetually fooled.

Prosecutorial Theory: 
Early on in the presidential campaign, someone at Facebook noticed that the Russians were buying ads and forming groups and pages... and that someone went to a superior in the Facebook bureaucracy... and that superior went to the person at the next level up the chain of Facebook command.  Eventually, someone went to Mark Zuckerberg and told him that big sums of money were coming in from what was suspected to be a Russian Intelligence Service operation.  Mark Zuckerberg knowingly decided to keep the revenue from Russian Intelligence, from Vladimir Putin, to keep that money (in Rubles) flowing into his profit margin.

Mark Zuckerberg was NOT fooled by the Russians.  He knew precisely what they were doing.  Mark Zuckerberg gleefully took the money, because he is greedy, because he is unprincipled, amoral, and he does not care about democracy or America.

 A front page New York Times story
(Sunday, February 18, 2018)
makes it abundantly clear:
Mark Zuckerberg
(and others at Facebook)
are not-yet-indicted co-conspirators
in the subversion of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Indict Mark Zuckerberg

At Bedrock: Mark Zuckerberg knew
(or should have known)
that Russian Intelligence Agents
Were Buying Political Ads.
Mark Zuckerberg's Greed
Overcame any Conscience
He Might Posess.

Bring Mark Zuckerberg
to Trial 
for Criminal Conspiracy...
for Racketeering.

Congressman Dan Newhouse: Gun Whore

Congressman Dan Newhouse
is a Gun Whore
Bought and Owned
by the National Rifle Association
for only
a Four Grand
Campaign Contribution.

Congressman Dan Newhouse,
represents Moses Lake, Washington,
where Barry Loukaitis
shot three students and a teacher
(killing two students
and the teacher)
at Frontier Jr. High
on Groundhog Day 1996.
Dan Newhouse doesn't care
about school safety.

Dan Newhouse
believes the 2nd Amendment
allows for (AR-15) massacres
in our schools,
because, after all,
he gets money
from the gun lobby.

Vote Dan Newhouse 
out of office!

Mark Zuckerberg: Swine of the Decade

Mark Zuckerberg

Swine of the Decade

Lover of Russian Money

* For a few dollars more, Facebook, led by Mark Zuckerberg, sold ads to Russia's security/intelligence agencies.  Caught red-handed warping and twisting American democracy, Zuckerberg and his tools claimed they were fooled by the Russians.  Not true
Zuckerberg should be indicted for conspiring
with the Russians to foul the 2016 election.

* When the United States Congress, the House of Representatives, asked for answers about Facebook and the Russians, Mark Zuckerberg, a coward, hid behind lawyers.  When he finally appeared, sitting on a booster cushion, as if the little man could be uplifted, he lied and lied and lied... and weakly apologized... and lied some more.  Users of Facebook do not control their data.

 Mark "Booster Cushion Boy" Zuckerberg

The Zuckerberg Cushion 

* Facebook is a communications company and ought to be regulated by Congress.

* Facebook is a for-profit company and should pay fair taxes. Zuckerberg should be audited by the Internal Revenue Service.  The Department of Justice should prosecute Mark Zuckerberg for tax evasion.

* Apparently those closest to Mark Zuckerberg, like his neighbors, despise him for his thoughtlessness, his arrogance, his selfishness.
His Hawaiian neighbors have been angered by the wall Zuckerberg built around his absurd home.  In Palo Alto, California, Zuckerberg allegedly destroyed a neighborhood by buying and bulldozing four homes just to get himself even more insulation.  

* Given that the Facebook news feed is now blotched with ads for "Suggested...." with videos that are criminally inane, it is clear that Mark Zuckerberg is the kind of asshole who loves to fart with dramatic volume because he thinks he is funny or clever.

* You can bet that Mark Zuckerberg has foul breath... something like burnt aluminum-butterscotch.

*  One man, a San Francisco accountant, has reportedly been jailed for nearly a year for yelling at billionaire-bully Mark Zuckerberg's thuggish bodyguards.  Neighbors in three places apparently find Mark Zuckerberg to be foul... a pig.

*  Hardly a month goes by that Mark Zuckerberg and/or his Facebook toadies find new ways to clutter the news feed with ads and social engineering.

* Mark Zuckerberg is the sort of neighborhood creep who shows up uninvited at parties, who paws family albums, who wanks in closets.

*  The same Mark Zuckerberg who sold out a presidential election, who did it for Russian rubles, is the same Mark Zuckerberg who is now promoting a site for the most dangerous dogs in America, Pit Bulls:
Does Mark Zuckerberg sit at home watching videos of Pit Bulls gnawing on human rib cages, of Pit Bulls mauling children, or Pit Bulls ripping forearms off elderly women?  My guess is that is precisely what Creepy Mark Zuckerberg does... and wanks and wanks and wanks as blood sprays.  Surely it's not just about more ad money... surely?
