- Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Facebook, has spent $43 million on security over the last three years to protect himself and his family.
- Despite supporting Democratic causes and anti-gun policies, Zuckerberg's extravagant spending on private security illustrates the hypocrisy of the elites.
- While advocating for the disarmament of law-abiding Americans, they themselves rely on armed guards for their protection.
- This hypocrisy should not be ignored, and the importance of the Second Amendment in protecting our rights must be upheld.
In recent news, it has been revealed that Mark Zuckerberg, the owner and primary shareholder of Facebook, has spent a staggering $43 million on security over the past three years. This exorbitant amount of money has been used to protect himself and his family from potential threats, although the exact nature of these threats remains unknown. The irony of this situation lies in the fact that Zuckerberg, who supports Democratic causes and advocates for anti-gun policies, seems to be exempt from the disarmament he promotes.
The hypocrisy of the elites, particularly those who advocate for gun control, is not a new phenomenon. Peter Schweitzer, an investigative journalist, highlighted this hypocrisy in his book 'Do as I Say, Not as I Do: Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy'. In this book, Schweitzer points out that many liberals don't actually trust their own ideas enough to apply them in their personal lives. They often behave more like conservatives when it comes to matters that directly affect their safety and well-being. This raises the question: if their liberal prescriptions don't work for them as individuals, how can they work for the rest of us?
Mark Zuckerberg's support for Democratic causes, including gun control, is well-known. His organizations and non-profits heavily supported Democratic-related clauses during the 2020 election, such as 'get out the vote' campaigns in Democratic areas. Additionally, there have been discussions about the role Facebook played in preventing the circulation of the Hunter Biden story on its platform. However, the focus of this video is not on these topics, but rather on the stark hypocrisy of Zuckerberg's personal security measures.
By spending millions of dollars on private security, Zuckerberg is essentially sending the message that he and his family are more important than the average citizen. While he may advocate for policies that prevent law-abiding Americans from protecting themselves and their families, he himself does not hesitate to invest in armed protection. This highlights the elitist mindset that prevails among many left-leaning individuals. They view themselves as superior and believe that the average citizen should be disarmed and reliant on the government for protection.
The comparison to George Orwell's 'Animal Farm' is apt in this context. In the book, Orwell famously wrote, 'All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.' This sentiment directly applies to the views of America's elites, particularly when it comes to gun control. They argue that all Americans should be disarmed, but conveniently exempt themselves from this rule. Mark Zuckerberg is just one example of this double standard.
Furthermore, the reality of the world we live in contradicts the Hollywood narrative that individuals, particularly celebrities, can take on large groups of attackers single-handedly. In real life, even the most physically capable individuals would struggle to overpower multiple assailants. Yet, many elites rely on armed guards for their personal safety, while simultaneously advocating for the disarmament of the general public.
What makes Zuckerberg's case particularly galling is his support for defunding or abolishing the police. Through his personal organization, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, he has reportedly gifted at least $5.5 million to organizations advocating for these policies. This further highlights the hypocrisy of his actions, as he simultaneously seeks to disarm law-abiding citizens while benefiting from armed security.
The examples of elite hypocrisy extend beyond Zuckerberg. Hollywood elites, who often espouse anti-gun views, hire large numbers of police officers and firefighters to provide security at events like the Academy Awards. The British royal family, including the Queen and Prince Charles, are protected by armed guards, despite living in a supposedly 'gun-free' country. Even political elites, such as former presidents and high-ranking government officials, enjoy lifetime Secret Service protection while advocating for stricter gun control measures.
In conclusion, the hypocrisy of anti-gun elites like Mark Zuckerberg should not be ignored. While they support policies that would disarm law-abiding Americans, they themselves rely on armed protection for their own safety. This double standard reveals their elitist mindset and their belief that they are above the average citizen. However, we must remember the importance of the Second Amendment in protecting our rights. Our Founders were wise in including this fundamental right in the U.S. Constitution, and it is up to us to ensure that it is upheld. As we fight for our rights, we must remind the elites that if they want us to disarm, they should lead by example and disarm themselves first.
