Sad weasel
From Reuters:
Exclusive: Elon Musk quits Zuckerberg's immigration advocacy group

Immigration Reform is Mark Zuckerberg. Mark Zuckerberg is Immigration Reform.

Meme it.

"The spots quickly drew the ire of liberal and environmental groups, including the Sierra Club and MoveOn.org, who earlier this week pledged to pull ads from Facebook for two weeks."

LOL. "You're grounded for two weeks, Mister!"

If Zuckerberg cynically praising conservative politicians for conservative stands that are popular with their conservative constituencies is what it takes to make liberals abandon ship...
Then I embrace Weasel Zuck.

Weasels look better than Zuck-'em-in.

America needs to unfriend Zuck. Sorry, "bro".

Why should we malign an innocent animal like the weasel by linking it to something as loathsome as Zuckerberg?

These weasel pics are cracking me up. We need to find a name for the flag-draped weasel and make him the site mascot.

The pro-immigrationists must be slightly concerned about Zuckerberg's surname - all considerations about his personality aside, that name just screams reinforcement of certain, ah, stereotypes. It's like a big dog-whistle.

I second Corn's comment. Please make Flagweasel an iSteve mascot.

I'm pleased my confidence in Elon Musk was well placed.

Musk defected to Canada (I think through his parents' citizenship) to dodge the South African draft. It would be hard to argue he'd have done better not bugging out on his country of birth and not hitting the dot-com MBA scene. So, if principles are no object, I'd wager his reading of the depth to which the FWD.US astroturf thing has become totally hosed is the correct one. After all that's just one particularly risible head of the amnesty hydra anyway

But he still was willing to join FWD.US. Perhaps he left because of the environmental angle. Perhaps he just wanted out, and this gives him socially acceptable cover. But that doesn't remove the fact that he was quite willing to sign up with a program of flooding the nation with foreigners.

Musk is a smart man, but he is a fool if he thinks a bunch of Mexican day-laborers and mediocre Indian C++-jockeys are going to build his rockets and electric roadsters for him.

It would be more convenient for making the founder of FWD.us the face of the Gang of Eight's bill if FWD.us was led by, say, a 28-year-old Bill Gates, i.e., a gentile billionaire, rather than a Jewish billionaire. If the meme spreads, eventually it will run into resistance due to MZ's non-gentileness, but that can take a long time.
