In another indication that the company is biased against conservatives and libertarians, Facebook opposes a shareholder proposal that promotes ideological and political diversity in its workforce. Sponsored by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), the resolution will be considered at the Facebook annual meeting on Thursday, May 30 in Menlo Park, California.

Facebook’s opposing statement doesn’t directly address the issue raised by the resolution and instead describes programs that make the workforce even more Left-wing and are based on group identity.

MAYBE HE OPPOSES IT FOR THE SAME REASON WE FILED IT. IT ‘S REALLY ABOUT HYPOCRISY.

BEZOS CLAIMS HE IS THE VICTIM OF SEXUAL BLACKMAIL, BUT I GUESS ONLY PROGRESSIVES CAN BE BLACKMAILED.

A LEXIS NEXIS SEARCH OF THE WASHINGTON POST FOR ARTICLES CONTAINING THE NAMES “MICHAEL AVENATTI” AND “STORMY DANIELS” YIELDS 513 RESULTS. IF YOU ADD IN THE SEARCH TERM OF “BLACKMAIL,” YOU GET 24 STORIES. BUT I COULDN’T FIND ONE IN WHICH THE TERM “BLACKMAIL” WAS USED IN REFERENCE TO WHAT AVENATTI WAS DOING TO DONALD TRUMP.

TRUMP’S ELECTION TOOK MANY IN THIS ROOM BY … Read More ➡
