Facebook Ad Executive Rob Goldman Apologizes for having “Uncleared Thoughts”…

Good grief, I doubt there is a more apropos example of how liberal echo-chambers generate a sketchy group-think compliance mindset.

After President Trump re-tweeted a discussion thread from Facebook VP of Ads Rob Goldman, which cited analysis done last year of Russian ad purchases/engagement, the liberal hive instantly attacked the executive.

According to Wired.Com Rob Goldman quickly began apologizing for expressing “uncleared thoughts”, where those thoughts are actually based on facts – but run counter to the necessary liberal narrative – so they must be repelled at all costs.

This you have to read:

(Via Wired) On Friday morning, just before 10am on the West Coast, the office of special counsel Robert Mueller published his indictment of 13 Russian operatives for interfering in the US election. The document was 37 pages, and it mentioned Facebook 35 times. It detailed how Russian operatives used the platform to push memes, plan rallies, create fake accounts, suppress the vote, foment racism, and more.

[…] But then, roughly eight hours after the indictment appeared online, Rob Goldman, a VP for ads for Facebook, decided he had a few points to add to the debate. He was just freelancing, and had not cleared his thoughts with either Facebook’s communications team or its senior management.

[…] With Mueller’s indictment, according to multiple people at the company, everyone felt that Facebook had done something right. The 35 mentions clearly showed that Facebook had fully cooperated with authorities. Many of the details in the indictment, particularly from pages 25 to 30, which include details of messages sent between private Facebook accounts, were given to Mueller by Facebook. That could have been a good story. But then Rob Goldman decided to weigh in, using a rival platform. He now has 10,500 Twitter followers, but a few fewer friends at work.

On Sunday night, Joel Kaplan, the VP of Global Public Policy at Facebook, put out a statement saying “Nothing we found contradicts the Special Counsel’s indictments. Any suggestion otherwise is wrong.” Roughly translated, that meant, “We asked Rob Goldman to throw his phone in a river.”

[…]  Later that day, Rob Goldman seemed to come to the same understanding, and posted internally at Facebook a message that read as follows: “I wanted to apologize for having tweeted my own view about Russian interference without having it reviewed by anyone internally. The tweets were my own personal view and not Facebook’s. I conveyed my view poorly. The Special Counsel has far more information about what happened [than] I do—so seeming to contradict his statements was a serious mistake on my part.  (read more)

One of the more, well, hilarious and typically-left aspects to the sympathetic article about Rob Goldman’s wrong thinking comes from this paragraph (emphasis mine):

 […] Facebook has long had a vexed relationship with Donald Trump. It’s based in Silicon Valley, and most of the executives and employees are liberal Democrats. Mark Zuckerberg believes, to his core, that the point of his platform is to make the world more open and connected. Donald Trump’s campaign was built on tribalismdividing America against the world, and dividing American groups against each other.

Remember, this is Facebook.  A social media platform based entirely on ‘tribalism’.

That paragraph is what’s called hypocrisy wrapped up with a heaping dose of sanctimonious pretzel logic.   In the same article where the author is describing an executive’s apology for having “unapproved wrong thoughts”, the same author is decrying Trump’s “tribalism”.

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.

The executives in charge of a social media platform based on western free expression and communication with “friends”, ie. ‘your tribe’, are now stating “thoughts” must be pre-approved and “tribalism” is bad, bad ju-ju…

Resist We Much !

The Struggle is Realz !

    It is now very clear that the progressive wing , which is most, of the democrat party has gone
    full dictator mode on the public.
    This could get serious as in violence on a large scale if unchecked, just check history in Russia, Germany and other modern day examples.

Chances of child being harmed for life by the commies brainwashing your child in the reeducation centers called public schools, colleges and universities are 1 in 1.

    When he says he had unclear thoughts it immediately brings to mind the communist way of dealing with unclear thoughts. You send them to a special camp to get there mind right. It can take months, years sometimes a lifetime but when you leave the camp you will have the proper thoughts.
    To get the proper thoughts you have forced labor and training classes to make sure of it. This doesn’t preclude involving your family ether.
    When people have the wrong thoughts people who all know better than you ostracize,, ridicule, and threaten you by any means with attacks. There isn’t two sides to the argument only theirs. They are always one sided shouting down the other.

      Agree, IDs should be state issued, not national, but ID isn’t the big issue, it’s gun and gun owner registration, which needs to be fought off on every front. Unfortunately, it’s almost a necessity for concealed carry, unless you’ve got an inordinately high risk tolerance. It is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6, but it’s best not to be arrested and have your carry-piece confiscated.

      Only about 3% of the population of colonial America directly supported the war for independence. Large swaths of military, including NG and Reserves, can be expected to join local forces and/or to stand down if directed to attack citizens. However, there are probably also large swaths of military and many higher ranking officers who’ve been indoctrinated and politicized by the last 28 years of widespread malfeasance in office, particularly in the executive. Civil war under current conditions would be catastrophic. In addition to Branch Davidian massacres in every city and militia stronghold, there would likely be all kinds of fractious localized “wars,” probably including big moves by MX and Muz cartels/gangs to seize territory and resources. Not good.

      We need at least 8 years of PDJT, his killas, and a tidal change in CONgress and the courts to get in a position where more people will support and fight for our Constitutional Republic, rather than against it. Cleaning the halls of academe is an even bigger, more difficult problem, but objectively positive results achieved by PDJT will have good effects among the youth that will help there, too.

      When Nunes brought that up in an interview, he said that he could not see how it was anyone but Powers doing it. Here’s my uncleared thoughts on the matter. Nunes has not seen all the evidence and does not realize how Powers could just give her access credentials to whoever might want them at the time but will change his mind when he does see the evidence. He alluded to this line of thinking regarding the FISA abuses. OR he is keeping his cards close to his vest so that Powers, et al do not realize that she is guilty of giving out her access credentials (basically abusing authority of her clearance or maybe even selling that access).

      By letting JW sue for the information, it will come out faster. Remember the comment about citizen Nunes having quicker access than Congressman Nunes? It is easier for FBI/DoJ to stonewall Congress than for them to evade a FOIA lawsuit.

        I believe he’s saying that because of compartmentalization of IC information and Powers in the executive branch is the equivalent of a White House staff position, which an ambassador position is on par to, — that Nunes doesn’t see how others in the different ‘compartments’ within the executive branch were able to use her security credentials to request the unmasking. A logical assumption, for sure, in a legally run operation. But nothing about that administration was on the up and up when it comes to the intelligence community and spying scheme.

        I believe there is a telling clue though. Because of the questions by Gowdy to Brennan (when we first heard him quizzing about an ‘ambassador’ requesting unmasking, and him asking Brennan about him/Brennan requesting unmasking on his last day in office), that they KNOW Brennan’s IP address from his computer is the computer that used Powers’ credentials to request unmasking. In other words, I believe they have the proof that others were using her credentials and have traced it by computer IP address.

        In a normal lawful operation, Brennan using Powers’ credentials to request unmasking would not occur. However, we are not talking about people with integrity, now are we?

        If you recall, just before Obama left office, he signed Executive Order 12333 that loosened the restrictions on sharing of Signal Intelligence information between ‘compartmentalized’ agencies (herein known as “IC element”). See: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/01/obama-expands-surveillance-powers-his-way-out

        What this did was to let the NSA—which collects information under that authority with little oversight, transparency, or concern for privacy—share the raw streams of communications it intercepts directly with agencies including the FBI, the DEA, and the Department of Homeland Security.

        Now if you go look up that EO here: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3283349-Raw-12333-surveillance-sharing-guidelines.html
        — and go to page 8 of 26 (digitally, or page 5 on the literal document) – Under section D. (U) Approved Requests, 1. (U) Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), it basically says that each IC element requesting raw signal intelligence must have first executed an MOA “with approval of the appropriate high-level officials at the requesting element, the NSA, and the ODNI (in coordination with the DOD).”

        So right there you have essentially three high-level officials who would have copies of these MOAs – to include the security credentials of the persons in each IC element who have been listed with in that particular IC element, and their accompanying security log in credentials. Who are they?

        Ambassadors fall under the Secretary of State within the Executive Branch. That was John Kerry.
        The NSA is Mike Rogers. We already know he can be eliminated from consideration since he is the white hat that opened Pandora’s Box.
        The ODNI was James Clapper.

        So of the three, we know it is either Kerry or Clapper, and I believe my money for the most part is on Clapper, since he and Brennan are two peas in a pod and Brennan is who Gowdy was zeroing in on.

    This is an eerily similar “apology” from the CNN meme creator who was threatened with geing doxed. The news moves so fast these days it’s hard to keep things in context. This was the beginning of last July.

    “First of all, I would like to apologize to the members of the reddit community for getting this site and this sub embroiled in a controversy that should never have happened,” he wrote. “I would also like to apologize for the posts made that were racist, bigoted, and anti-semitic. I am in no way this kind of person, I love and accept people of all walks of life and have done so for my entire life. I am not the person that the media portrays me to be in real life, I was trolling and posting things to get a reaction from the subs on reddit and never meant any of the hateful things I said in those posts. I would never support any kind of violence or actions against others simply for what they believe in, their religion, or the lifestyle they choose to have. Nor would I carry out any violence against anyone based upon that or support anyone who did.”

    The Thought Police problem is real. The process of developing a thought taboo is genuine.
    Beyond the Frankfurt School’s research into how political views are formed, and swayed, there is a more recent, clear example.

    Garrett Hardin wrote a book, “Stalking the Wild Taboo.” 1973. Hardin is best-known for developing and promoting the idea of “the tragedy of the commons,” where he made the case that if we do not regulate everything under the sun, it will all get ruined.

    Hardin, overall, was yet another elitist-intellectual Marxist, with some credentials in biology. He was a huge advocate of “population control,” and the idea that we will all ruin the planet unless we appoint Hardin and friends to rule over us.

    For some inexplicable reason, the elitist-intellectual Marxists are all Hot for abortion. One explanation is they are plain Godless evil people. Another is that they are trying to play God, as in Tower of Babel.

    So, before Roe v. Wade, Hardin was a big abortion advocate. “Stalking the Wild Taboo” is about how taboos get formed, and then how he worked, across years, to promote rhetoric to change the social view so abortion would no longer be taboo.

    He came to realize that many many people had had abortions, or supported others getting abortions, or at least were favorable, individually, but NO ONE was talking about it. He decided the taboo against mentioning abortion should be changed. The book records his developing thinking/rhetoric across a few years, and his speechifying in various places.

    In short, in this book you see a Prog grab hold of an idea and shift public attitude by massaging messages.

    One lesson is that much, if not most, of the rhetoric around abortion was manufactured. Largely by Hardin, as well as largely by a few others including Lawrence “Larry” Lader / Bernard Nathanson. [If you google their names together, you can find the story where abortionist-turned-anti-abortion advocate Nathanson describes his and Lader’s brainstorming efforts to develop rhetorical messages to suit the abortion advocacy mission.)

    So, if someone says it is as plain as the nose on your face that abortion ought to be legal, you can respond that the rhetoric was actually intentionally developed, over a few years, by some males who wanted to advance abortion, and the slogans shouted now were all dreamed up back then, and are scripted, and thus are not obvious.

    Hardin explains taboos: at first, you realize you should not SAY something out loud in polite company, then you internalize the idea, and believe you should not THINK it; the next step is to have your thinking changed to where obvious things – such as killing a defenseless baby is wrong – does not even occur in your mind.

        As it is with just about all interwebs ‘meme art’ being churned out and unceremoniously kicked into the wilds on a daily basis, the interpretation is always in the eye of the inevitable beholder – wherever they are in the wide wide world of the ‘world wide web’ – sometimes even in spite of an interpretation that the maker might have obviously intended.

        I think that one’s all about a ludicrous juxtaposition – given that we Americans and no other peoples are space travelers to the moon and have sent neato electric cars playing David Bowie music out into deep space to travel through the cosmos for all eternity….. and OUR future currently belongs to soap eaters [and the like]. Or something. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

        The guys who went to the moon had a vehicle, a lunar rover. You can google or youtube it.

        They left that stript-down lookin vehicle just wherever up there on the moon, expired tags and all, like any proper redneck would leave some buggy on the side of the yard.

        I believe it is for sale, but you would have to go through the title rebuild process.

    I believe “Rob Goldman’s” series of tweets was approved by FB officials in advance of their delivery. Why? Because FB wants the public to believe they allow free speech from their employees. It’s just too much for me to believe this whole incident wasn’t contrived, to make it unclear as to how FB works hand in glove with the Deep State to influence and control people’s thoughts.

    If anyone would know that no such communication is allowed, it would be an officer (Vice President) of FB. That is one of the first things any officer agrees to, i.e. they are to let the official PR staff address all such matters. As an employee, you keep quiet about any news about the company and let the professional public relations staff make any comment or address any questions.

    If this was a genuine response from Mr. Goldman, he would have been fired immediately. Because he wasn’t, it was a choreographed “drama”, to make it appear that both FB and the Deep State are on the up and up, when the reality is they are both corrupt and working in partnership with each other.

    Thanks Sundance, this cracked me up.

    The Hive Mind didn’t take long to discipline a wayward insect, did it…
    Silicon Valley’s slavish devotion to the Lefts Cultural Marxism, and brutal repression of those who dare to disagree is creepily reminiscent of Mao’s establishment of the Red Guards in 1966 to stamp out dissent, by targeting revisionists for death or public humiliation by forced self-denunciation for daring to deviate from The Party Line.

    FakeBooks agreeing to Red Chinas “acceptable truth” and Goolags acquiescence to filter bubbles at the direction of the Communist Party is really no surprise, either.

    As usual, the solution is sunlight, the best disinfectant.
    Keep up the great work. CTH is a must read daily, IMHO.

    It seems given the Leftist Slant at Fakebook, they were Colluding with the Ruskies…
    Why else would they allow such obviously Russian attempts to violate our election laws?
    “The document was 37 pages, and it mentioned Facebook 35 times. It detailed how Russian operatives used the platform to push memes, plan rallies, create fake accounts, suppress the vote, foment racism, and more.”

      On that video – If you look at it many times, you may agree with me that it looks like a dog.
      It hangs like a (dead) body, but is too small for a high-school-age human, and not quite the right shape or form. And, the guys would not be carrying a human, along with carrying a couple other things, like they are. It very well could be a German Shepherd.

      There was at least one search dog taken in there. If so, then the dog got sick from something – paint thinner, who knows, or possibly got hit by friendly fire. The shooter was gone at that point, I believe.

    CNN and NBC have run banners that Trump refuses to condemn Russia for meddling in our elections, while Fox wheels out one of the chief idiots Ralph Peters to do the same. Well, if Trump is condemn Russia, what she he do about all the other nations (friend and foe) who meddled in our elections as they do every two years?
    Qatar and Kuwait royalty bragged about funding 50% of Clinton’s campaign.
    German gave over $4 Million to Clinton.
    During his many overseas whistle stops, during the election, Obama solicited negative comments on Trump from international governments.
    China and North Korea more than likely copied the Russia Government’s social media actions.
    Speaking of social media, in case Mueller and Democrat Media haven’t notice 100’s of Millions of foreigners actually attacked Trump via social media in the US via the internet..
    The Mexican government gave Clinton money and also poste voter guides on US social media.

    The absurdity and farce of “interference in US elections is a very dangerous bad joke at best.

    By the way, what should foreign governments do about US meddling in their elections??

    Perhaps after Damore suing for workplace discrimination, the HR Department at FakeBook is still trying to run the risk/reward, on how far they can go.

    Goldman is higher up, in advertising, and a more visible “hero” if he was abruptly sacked, for his 1A right to his own opinion. Not a low level aspy engineer- he could wreak MUCH more havoc to the Left Narrative, simply for termination, never mind pushback if he chose to. Looks like he took orders from headquarters, and self censored on command. Sad!

    In a Nutshell. “It turns out thirteen Russians posing as Americans took out Facebook ads. What’s next? Thirteen Russians voting in our election! Think of the chaos thirteen Russian votes would sow in our confidence in who won and who didn’t. It isn’t as if thirteen of the 11 to 30 million undocumented residents who sneaked across the southern border would ever vote. Ask Wolf or Dan or Jake or any other card-carrying journalist and s/he will tell you people who sneaked across our border illegally would never, never, never ever do anything illegal. Like vote in an American election…”

    I remember when I first read Fahrenheit 451 and later 1984 I’d wondered how people could possibly let things get that way. These were just books, but I’d assumed in the real world it couldn’t happen short of a brutal and violent regime like North Korea springing up in the US and forcing it on us.

    But the reality is far more sinister, and the victims practically willing and often complicit. Such tyranny that strangles speech, expression, and even thought doesn’t strike all at once like a deadly viper in the darkness; it slowly coils ever tighter around us in broad daylight until one day we will find our freedoms gone and no way to get them back.

    Thank God we fought back with Trump before it was too late and more and more people can see all of this for what it is.

      There used to be a book store in Laguna Beach, Ca during the “late 60’s and seventies” named Fahrenheit 451!

      I spent a lot of time in my youth there reading in the corner on foggy beach days.

      I could never afford to purchase books at that time in my life, but was allowed to read so long as my hands were clean.

      Ray Bradbury signed and gave me a copy of his book in that store.

      Fahrenheit 451 …the temp needed to burn a book.

        A bit jealous you got to meet the man. That was one of my favorites as a kid. Him and C.S. Lewis, and Tolkien. Between Lewis’ Space Trilogy and Bradbury and Asimov’s stuff, I spent many nights on other planets and among different people beyond even what my crazy imagination could come up with.

        I remember after I read 451 trying to figure out which book I would memorize “just in case”, and sadly I could not choose one. So many books. I couldn’t imagine the World losing any of them.

        Faber, a character in 451…named after a pencil manufacturer. Another little tidbit Bradbury put in that book.

          There are so many characters in that book that can be compared to people in every day life.

      Fahrenheit 451 is sickeningly prescient, as are 1984 and even A Clockwork Orange–especially in England, where self-defense has essentially become a greater crime than the instigating violent crime. Home invaders get probation, homeowners who shoot or club an invader get long sentences and life-destroying fines. This is the kind of stuff I’ll go down fighting.

      BTW, prayers up for your job situation, Keln!
