From the Guardian here:
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg defended Facebook board member Peter Thiel’s support of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in a post that invoked the importance of “diversity” for the social media company.
“We care deeply about diversity. That’s easy to say when it means standing up for ideas you agree with. It’s a lot harder when it means standing up for the rights of people with different viewpoints to say what they care about,” Zuckerberg wrote in a post visible only to Facebook employees, a photograph of which was shared on Hacker News on Tuesday.
Being a complete asshole like Peter Thiel is not minority behavior that needs to be slipped into the diversity basket.
As Gawker pointed out, he’s a world class Anglo billionaire prick with disgusting ideas and all hooked into the surveillance world and the general galaxy of libertarian bullshit.
Using this logic Trump should be on Facebook’s board! He’s a fucker too, let’s give a hug to all the fuckers out there.
