Facebook employees hold virtual walkout to protest Zuckerberg’s inaction

Facebook employees are staging a rare protest against the company for leaving up a post from President Donald Trump they say could incite violence. The employees publicly criticized the social network on Twitter over the weekend, escalated their disapproval by staging a virtual walkout and symbolically changing their workplace profile pictures.

When the people start dictating the leader how to run things... the country is basically on autopilot and waiting to crash. Sucker Borg is right on this one. Its not the job of the corporations & businesses to decide or force national policies.

This is the essence of the liberal mindset. Politicise everything, challenge every decision, conduct excruciating post mortem on every strategy until it suffocates and paralyses society. There have to be rules, leaders must be afforded latitude and we must exercise our periodic right to send them packing - but not every day!

“I strongly disagree with how the President spoke about this, but I believe people should be able to see this for themselves, because ultimately accountability for those in positions of power can only happen when their speech is scrutinized out in the open,” Zuckerberg said in a post. How can people have a problem with that? Do they look down on the general populace and think the need to filter what we see and can't make up our own minds?

Newsvoice really needs to change these tags labeling trash such as the BBC and The Guardian as 'Europe'. Everyone here knows they are fake news and propaganda, and should be labeled accordingly as 'Left leaning'

Isn't "the people telling the leader how to run things" the basic concept of democracy?

I’m pretty sure Facebook leadership is looking to the future, they’ve realized that the conservatives are angry, and twitter set off the president enough for an executive order to start to target them. Facebook is simply trying its damnedist to avoid the inevitable flustercuck that’s coming down the pipe.

Tender people that are quick to sadness and slow to overcome obstacles are just so awful and frustrating. Imagine the idea of waking up and being triggered at something on Facebook. Imagine how absolutely sensitive and frail someone has to be that they need to take time off work because their boss didn't take down an "offensive post."

Zuckerberg is exceptionally dangerous person. All his mascarade about "freedom of expression" is completely fraud. All he is doing with his website is divide and conquer.

Leftwing organisations are not supossed to stand up for free speech. Why would they tolerate this assault on their sacred cow of one sided perspectives and poltical bias.

Absolutely nothing wrong with what Trump said, people are destroying businesses and attacking people. The cop that killed George has been charge and a trial will take place, what else do they want.

Facebook employees walk out because they think people are too stu*** to make decisions and critically think for themselves. The saviour complex on these people is astounding
