Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Now Building a Political Network

Jennifer Martinez, The Hill, August 4, 2013

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is building a new social network, and this time it’s political.

While he’s better known as the hoodie-clad, Harvard dropout that launched a multi-billion dollar Internet company, Zuckerberg has emerged as a political player on the national stage.

After largely sitting on the political sidelines for a few years, the 29-year-old Facebook founder is using his clout as a top business executive and American success story to advocate for comprehensive immigration reform.

This week, Zuckerberg will publicly dive headfirst into the immigration debate that’s captivated Washington by joining forces with pro-immigration advocates outside of the tech industry.

On Monday evening in San Francisco, Zuckerberg will give introductory remarks at the premiere of “Documented,” a documentary film directed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas that looks at the stories of young immigrants, known as “Dreamers,” who came to the United States illegally as children with their parents.

FWD.us, the political advocacy group that Zuckerberg co-founded and helped finance with his former Harvard roommate Joe Green, is co-hosting the event with Vargas’s immigrant rights group Define American.

The premiere is expected to draw a who’s who crowd of top Silicon Valley tech stars, as well as undocumented workers and Dreamers. The diverse audience is intended to show a united push for immigration reform.

    They already dominate the multi-billion dollar drug trafficking industry so I guess the sky is the limit for these little invaders!

    The only untapped industry would be child and animal prostitution, which will be legal by 2050 if the Democrats and their assorted miscreant lobbies get their way!

  • Manaphy

    Why the hell should anyone care about what Mark Zuckerberg says? He is a lying, antisocial, miscegenationist who only got his wealth and ownership of Facebook by scamming various businesses, stabbing his friends and associates in the back, and swindling others out of their money and violating copyright laws. BTW, if Zuck thinks that today’s illegal immigrants are tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, then why doesn’t he hire any Hispanics to work as software programmers?

    • sbuffalonative

      And why is Mr. Zuckerberg championing this issue? Did he come up with this on his own or did someone have a talk with him?

      • Sick of it

        He has to tow the line. It’s a tribal obligation.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Gee is he jewish by any chance? How shocking!

      • David Ashton

        Where is John Engelman when they need him on morally superior people?

        • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

          Zuckerberg is a double JE jackpot, a tribe member married to a Chinese. Any children resulting from the union will be so incredibly superior that their flatulence will smell like Chanel #5.

    • The Gang Bangers of Eight bill has a massive increase in the H-1B visa program, the number of yearly allotments. That’s his big personal interest in it.

    • ThomasER916

      Because Facebook will hire Jews to run it, while whites get taxed to pay for the welfare races to use it.

  • willbest

    This is the real problem with handing insane amounts of wealth to somebody. They somehow think because they did one thing right they know how to do everything else right and now they have the resources to do whatever that is. Why can’t they just be content to go Scrooge McDuck and swim around in a vault of gold coins.

    • Actually, nobody “handed” Zuck his fortune. Most of his current net worth is the number of shares he owns in his own company multiplied by the current trading price. He wants the GBof8 bill because it vastly increases the yearly allotments of H-1B visas, which will make his labor costs cheaper, which will, at least in the terms of Wall Street analysts, make the profitability growth potential of FB better, which will drive up the selling price of FB shares, which increases Zuck’s net worth.

      Ironically, I heard today that younger people are starting to ditch FB in droves, supposedly because their parents are joining it. I happen to think that this is virtual white flight. Facebook used to be the whitopia that whites fled to after MySpace became a digital ghetto. Now Facebook is becoming ghetto, and about the only white person who likes that is the guy who runs Charleston Thug Life. There’s not a social network we can have that the undertow won’t invade and drive us out of. Then again, why shouldn’t digital neighborhoods be the same as real neighborhoods? I guess the long term solution is that there will have to be a social network that either has a one time or yearly fee, or some qualification barrier for entry. Ironically, Facebook only used to be open to current and former college students.

      • … and about the only white person who likes that is the guy who runs Charleston Thug Life.

        And he only likes it because it makes running ChasThugLife too easy.

      • willbest

        Ordinarily I wouldn’t use “hand” in wealth building, such as Jobs for Apple or Gates for Microsoft, but in the case of Zuckerberg there is no earthly reason for his stock valuation. It assumes silly growth for decades despite all the undertow and flight by younger generations. So it seems like a whole lot of giving. Bezos is another person being handed lots of money in the same manner.

        As for the difference between using foreign or domestic labor the cost savings is actually rather inconsequential. FB isn’t like GM or Boeing who employ 200k employees. Facebook has 5,300 employees, it looks more like rounding error.

        • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

          It will be deeply satisfying when FB goes the way of MySpace.

        • It’s not a rounding error to a profitability-challenged company like FB. 5300 employees times $20k/yr labor cost savings that the expanded H-1B visa program affords and also the general overall degradation of the labor market (mass immigration of any kind has an economy-wide impact on wages and salaries), means that FB gets to keep $106m that it would otherwise be paying in salaries. That level of new annual profitability would drive the WS traders and analysts bananas. Why do you think FB’s shares are now trading higher than they were at IPO after more than a year of FB shares being in the relative toilet? Because certain people are betting on the GBof8 bill passing and the relevant consequences for FB.

    • me

      Exactly! That’s why we’re in the trouble that we’re in. Any fool with money can buy a political whore to do his or her bidding, whether it’s disastrous or not.

  • FWD dot us, or as Sailer puts it, the NAABP, National Association for the Advancement of Billionaire People.

    Nice of Zuck to assemble a full, complete and dare I say comprehensive list of all the traitors for us.

  • sbuffalonative

    hoodie-clad, Harvard dropout?

    He’s a conniving creep who screwed over all the people who helped create Facebook.

    Anyone who could watch The Social Network and not see Mr. Zuckerberg for what he is has no brain.

    • Sick of it

      Reminds one of Bill Gates…

  • IstvanIN

    Any honest comment I could possibly make would be deleted.

  • Spartacus

    Another jew that wants to bring dark-skins to a white country ? And people say I’m paranoid…

  • Jackryanvb

    Hey Muslim extremists, are you going to put up with this$ billionaire Mark Zuckerberg?

    • www(dot)chicagoamren(dot)com

      Buy some Palestinians the house next door?

    • Don’t worry, he’ll save his own skin by setting up a FB server farm in Yemen and allowing FB to be used as terrorist attack planning central.

  • Romulus

    There’s a surprise! Another Jewish billionaire using his deep pockets to undermine our country. An idiot to boot! Like David said, “Where’s the devils advocate on their behalf?”

  • bigone4u

    Another Soros wannabe with the cash to talk trash. Zuck will lose his shirt as the economy continues down and people discover they don’t need junk like Facebook, with fake friends and narcissism run amok. Anthony Weiner is Facebook’s leading user anyway.

    • White Mom in WDC

      And do we really want to see Anthony Weiner’s weiner? Um no. Let’s save that for Blacks on Blondes or whatever other smut site he may be into

  • White Mom in WDC

    White people need to get a clue. Social media is not for us, but for yenta Jooz who wish to get into our business and rat us out to the parasites known as the SPLC. What contribution has ‘Zuck’ and Facebook made to our society really? It really is just an extension of porn and feeds into the voyeuristic minds if minorities and their yenta enablers. It is a trap, line many social media sites.

    White people get real. Get living, having real relationships, and creating and inventing real things. White people get busy doing what we do best, having AUTHENTIC lives of real creativity and invention in place of yenta behavior

    • bigone4u

      Well said, White Mom. I don’t do Facebook or Twitter. Too juvenile for me. No real ideas being expressed. I’ll leave Facebook to the likes of Anthony Weiner and Sydney Leathers, who in fact just did a porno. Facebook, enhancing the lives of creeps and future porn stars.

    • BonusGift

      ‘Social media’ is almost totally a fashion item not a technological advancement. In fact, FB itself now turns out to in addition to being fashion driven is a data collection arm of those who want us monitored and eventually dead.
      In short, I’m with you White Mom in WDC; and I wonder (outside of possible business communication) what people see in those types of sites beyond the immediate narcissistic need for shallow attention and their brainwashed desire to conform in their own surveillance.

  • ThomasER916

    The Facebook sale was a sham. The people who bought it lost big time thanks to collusion between the media and experts. The Tribe has swindled again…

  • din_do_nuffins

    Today’s immigrants WILL be tomorrow’s entrepreneurs.

    As the White Community shrinks below support level for BRA Democracy, anyone who wants something done will have to do it themselves.

    But the best paid immigrant entrepreneurs will be the Race Racket Hustlers who bank big phat by blaming Whites for how bad it is and shaking down what little White wealth is left. They will form governing coalitions with blacks and force White into utter servitude and humiliation.

    Everyone reading this knows that in the next 30 years, Whites won’t have ANYTHING that the Diversity says they shouldn’t. All money will be considered owned by the FedGov employees, and they will take away any amount from you they want as a Justice Measure.

    The Tutu Tax on Whites Only will kaput your ability to save money. The Ogletree Tax on your inheritance will kaput your ability to receive anything from your White parents. The Trayvon Tax will criminalize your gun ownership.

    Some of you think the White Community will wake up and fight back. If it hasn’t happened by now, it won’t happen. We are “tolerant” of our own genocide, because as bad as it will be, getting called “racist” is worse.

  • Funruffian

    I might be dropping my FB account soon. It served it’s purpose for a while. 3 years ago I jumped on the FB bandwagon, and mainly, for personal and vain reasons, I wanted to see what my old high school friends looked like. What became of them. Well now that my curiosity is satiated, I no longer have use for FB. At least I will not have to attend my 30 year reunion in 2016. And that isn’t much of a loss.
    It seems like their are the usual friends on FB who literally have to give a play-by-play view on their lives every bleeding minute. It is very immature and makes them look silly. FB promotes Narcissistic behavior in most people and I am ashamed to be a part of it.

    • T_Losan

      Also, my memories of my classmates were much nicer than the reality of their current ultra-left wing, pro-gay, pro-Trayvon, anti-white views. Some things should just be left in the past.

  • Libertarian67

    People like Zuckerberg have no real perception of the problem they just need to be seen as progressive and caring just like Gates, the late Jobs and others of their type. It is really easy to be progressive especially about color when you can live in multi million dollar gated communities and send your kids to the best private schools. This is no surprise and people like him must be stopped! One of many reasons I have not and never will have a FB account or anything to do with it.

    I worked high-tech on the west coast for over 10 years from the mid-90’s through the mid-00’s and I watched this transition from hard working libertarian thinking type people to left-wing PC types who wanted to take no risks. Having worked for two very large technology companies in hardware development it went from cutting edge innovation almost daily to risk-aversion. During this same time the companies went from mainly white men to brown and black men and women. I know that much of this was due to H-1B visas which some of my ilk support(ed) but not all of us are open border advocates. Other contributions were that the government came in and said there were not enough blacks, browns or women in engineering especially hardware design and that had to change. Things went south very quickly and I got the hell out of there and came back east.

    • me

      Great post! Truth is so satisfying when expressed with such inarguable eloquence. That’s why I love AmRen and the posters on here.

  • John

    Surprise, Zuck stole the technology from some of his fellow students at Harvard and then proceeded to exploit it. I’ve read that he may have had some help from the Mossad in getting FB up and running and “improving” the tech. Facebook is a data mining operation, make no mistake about it. I advise everyone I know to avoid it like the plague. It’s almost as bad as Google and Youtube. What a coincidence. Both are owned by Jews. Who would have thought? What a surprise, Zuck is using his ill gotten gains to promote a liberal, NWO type agenda. He PO’d a lot of his coreligionists when he married that Chinese gal but he’ll come around in a few years. Quick divorce, nice Jewish girl, good to go and all’s kosher.

    • I thought she was Vietnamese, but since lots of Chinese ethnics fled South Vietnam after 1975 (they formed the business class), she could well be both.

      Didn’t Zuckerberg renounce his US citizenship to avoid paying income taxes after the Facebook IPO? If so, he’s the last person who should be meddling in US internal politics.

      • me

        But, oy! The geld is THE most important thing, don’t you know….

      • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

        Her family is Cantonese, and as you say, Chinese form the merchant class in many Asian countries, much like the tribe does in White countries. I have a Chinese friend who jokes that the Chinese are the “Jews of Asia”.

      • T_Losan

        Can’t avoid U.S. tax by renouncing citizenship. IRS reserves the right to continue taxing former U.S. citizens for ten years I believe. Also, renouncing citizenship isn’t so easy, you have to appear multiple times at a consulate and convince them you have a reason to do so.

    • Jackryanvb

      Nah, next wives will look like Christie Brinkley, blond 20 something Shiksa. This Zuckerberg might even flip out, go Bobby Fisher. What a mess.

  • me

    Zukerberg is a typical ‘progressive liberal’ that has the added sin of selling out all of his Facebook users to the paranoid government surveillance team. He also is a liar and a cheat, which is also typical of his heritage.

    • blight14

      Correct………….

    • BonusGift

      From the movie Casablanca:
      Rick: “How can you close me up? On what grounds?”
      Renault: “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here.”
      Employee of Rick’s: [hands Renault money] “Your winnings, sir.”
      Renault: “Oh, thank you, very much. Everybody out at once!’I am shocked, shocked,…”

      From reality based observation:
      I am shocked, shocked to find another elite Jew who wants to destroy Christina European America (and, BTW, every other European country).
      Sarc off.

  • knuckledragger

    …a Jew with a socialist agenda. How is this even news?

  • IKantunderstand

    Yeah, ok. Another Red Sea Pedestrian descendant, that we are stuck with because he had the fortune to be born in this country. What if Mark had been born in China? (maybe he would have found a better looking bride) would he have been able to accomplish what he did here? What if he had been born in India? How about Israel? The fact of the matter remains: The United States(for now) of America permitted in Red Sea Pedestrians not knowing they were wolves in sheep’s clothing. Of course they are smart, they intermarried with White people. (Check out the I.Q.s of the darker branch). They are also sexually deviant, they are behind porn, they don’t have a hell or a heaven, they are completely amoral in all the ways that Christians are not. Why has no one criticized the foundation of their religion? Seriously. There is no way that the Old Testament and the New Testament, have to be related. Why is rap music now presented as the norm of American culture? This music is everywhere. Apparently, we are just supposed to shrug our collective White shoulders and say “Whoa., this is so much better than Beethoven, so much better than Glen Miller, so much better than banjo music, folk music, country western, rock and roll.” In fact, we want the rest of the world to equate hip hop, with American culture. Yup, “American culture” is now hip hop music, tattoos, gay rights, sexual deviancy, being transgendered, abortion on demand, loose morals, single motherhood, twerking, drug use, eliminating all vestiges of Christianity, removing all remnants of cultural holidays such as Halloween and or changing their meaning:Thanksgiving, Columbus Day. Wow. I am even more depressed after expressing my feelings. This country is not “Judeo Christian.” I don’t why those two words were ever juxtaposed, the only concrete part of the “Judeo” is the Ten Commandments . Frankly, I think Christians would have come with those rules on their own, based on Christ”s teachings.Allow me to stipulate for the record: There are good people in any group. I will never ever make a categorical statement, and then backtrack it by pointing out the obvious exceptions. Whatever any of you think, Christianity played a huge part in the advancement of the White race. It is also playing a huge part in our demise.

    • Mark wouldn’t want to go anywhere near Israel. At his age, they’d put him in the army for three years.

  • DailyKenn

    And he may well be correct, if one considers illegal narcotic trafficking to be an entrepreneurial enterprise.

    • blight14

      Hey Kenn, B from L’ville……indeed, Z’berg et al just LOVE those areas, in addition to the human sex trade industry, Ecstasy manufacturing/distribution, illegal human organ sales, pornography, etc etc etc…………..we’re SO lucky to have such fine citizens……

  • Spartacus

    Amren deleted my post about Zuckerberg’s tribal affiliation . What happened to that Jefferson quote you keep under the site’s name ?

  • Jackryanvb

    ’twas ever thus.

    Read T Wolf’s Radical Chic. Leonard Bernstein holds fund raising party for the Black Panthers at his 5th Avenue posh apartment. The party must have servants, but it would look bad to have Black African American Servants, so they get Hispanic servants, who needless to say, do not live on 5th Avenue.

  • blight14

    With the latter being the bulk of his motivation………….

  • ViktorNN

    I’m sick of the liberal mantra that we need immigrants for their entrepreneurialism.

    Tomorrow’s entrepreneur’s could more easily be white kids. But instead, white kids face a whole host of challenges: at this very moment they are underrepresented at jewish-dominated Ivy League schools, they are crowded out by uncreative conformist status-obsessed Asian immigrants, they are graduating college with mind numbingly high levels of student loan debt because our education is corrupt and broken, and their parents are overtaxed to pay to try and educate non-whites who hate education (because “being educated = acting white”).

    I could go on and on about the challenges white kids – especially lower middle class white kids – face as they get ready for college. Why isn’t Zuckerberg interested in them?

    The human capital this country needs is already here in the form of the next generation of white Euro-Americans. Plutocrats like Zuckerberg want to lower our share of this country’s wealth and our standard of living by importing cheaper foreigners who don’t mind living in third world have-and-have-not squalor. This guy and people like him could be investing in white children as tomorrow’s tech leaders, while also supporting tighter immigration restrictions which would tighten the labor market and raise the standard of living for everyone, including chronically underemployed minorities. They don’t though. They are hostile to white America.

  • Paul

    What would you expect from a pair that basically stole ‘facebook’ from it’s creators?

  • If Zuckerberg is so fond of illegal greaseros and greaseritas, why doesn’t he move to Mexico… Oh, I remember now: rich pukes like him are frequently kidnapped there, and sometimes tortured to death even when the ransom is paid.
