Zuckerberg's latest Cheap Labor Lobby ad: "Decides the Golden Tool"


FWD.us (a.k.a., the National Association for the Advancement of Billionaire People) is at it again. Mark Zuckerberg's 30 second spot is called "Emma" and it features, you guessed it, the Statue of Liberty along with a rewrite of Emma Lazarus's schmaltzy poem to wedge in some new jargon, like "And give me the influencers." I didn't hear the term "disrupters" in there, but hopefully that word will be in the 60 second version.

Here's the automatic transcript on Youtube of the narration:

0:02 give me do it right your poorer huddled masses yearning to breathe
0:09 and kids who need the influences
0:11 entertainers
0:14 talent that is searching for a purpose
The Golden Tool
0:18 dole's dedicated to her
0:20 send all of these
0:22 brown this going to mean
0:25 agnes time and decides the golden tool

I couldn't have said it better myself.

In evaluating this ad, keep in mind that there are days, even weeks, when Zuckerberg's net worth drops from 11 digits to only 10 digits, so show some mercy to poor Zuck.

Is that Maya Angelou doing the narration?

That is so perfect that it really can't be improved on.

From now on, I propose Zuck to be known as "The Golden Tool," fighting to put our brown future on the dole.

I was going to guess Cecily Tyson, but Maya Angelou sounds more like it. Maybe they got Maya to rewrite the poem, too, as part of her fee.

On the one hand I dislike Zuck's machinations, but on the other hand I can't help but wondering if he's unintentionally promoting our side. He's kind of like the Downs Syndrome kid on the plutocrat football team, throwing the ball to the opposition and thinking he's doing a good job.

It's there in the original: "I lift my lamp beside the Golden Tool." It's right there in the Constitution.

Plenty of douchebags in the high tech industry, but Zuckerberg went there harder and faster than just about anyone else in history: unapologetically crooked, nasty, and dishonest, and completely contemptuous of his users and their privacy, because he thinks he can get away with it. If you can't bring yourself to delete your Facebook page, at least try to spend a lot less time on it.

I find it fascinating that Jews, all but absent from the first 250 years or so of this country's history, and having gained control of the commanding heights of this country's important institutions, have redefined to us the meaning and purpose of our nation. The purpose of this country and what has made it great has nothing to do with Emma Lazarus.

Zuckerberg's ad says of reducing immigration that "[I]t's a policy unfit for today's world."

In case Zuckerbarg and his ilk haven't yet noticed, no American voted for congressional representatives, or for a president, to GOVERN THE WORLD - just the United States. And then only to serve the purposes set forth in our Constitution's Preamble, not to serve the greed of the Zuckerbergian parasites who happen merely to reside here, to take advantage of the infrastructure and tax loopholes, among us Americans.

OT: Gotta love the dailymail. "BBC chief admits: We had a 'deep liberal bias' on migrants... so has anything changed?"

It's no surprise at all that dailymail is not owned by Murdoch. They DM need to set up franchises elsewhere in the Anglosphere, e.g. in the US and Australia. Opinion is growing against immigration and all else equal, people generally prefer to read news aligned with their own biases. The Daily Mail is exploiting this niche, allowing comments on both immigration and failings of the justice system.

"Those who were still awake seemed taken aback by the day’s events, and blamed the overthrow on members of former President Hosni Mubarak’s regime.

"The problems that people could see, like the fuel crisis, stopped a day or two ago. The stock market rose on the 30th of June by 5 percent. How is everything solved moments before he leaves? I believe it is due to Mubarak and the deep state," said Sharif Ahmed, a businessman."

I don't recall Steve ever drawing attention to Zuck's Jewishness, at least in relation to weasels. If anything, Steve should be wary of being accused of anti-Mustelism.

What percentage of the US population is made up of immigrants? It's a minority, for sure. Ever since there has been a country called the USA, the majority of its population has been native born, right? There's never been a time when a majority or anything close to a majoritu of US citizens, or even residents, have been immigrants. In what way can it therefore be said to be a 'nation of immigrants?' Is it because some people, while not immigrants, had ancestors who were (or settlers - no difference, right? Right?)? Is immigrantness passed down the male line? Is there a one-drop immigrantness rule? Aren't one-drop rules bad things though? So many questions.

I guess if we're all immigrants, even when we're not, then "immigrant" is really just synonymous with "human being", in which case it becomes redundant to say it. Instead of calling the USA, or Britain, or France, or Australia, "nations of immigrants", we can just call them "nations". Is that ok, hostile ones? No?

Weasels are not rodents, they are members of Order Carnivora, like bears, cats, and dogs.

This makes sense, because rodents are exclusively prey species, whereas weasels are active, energetic predators.

If Zuckerberg doesn't want to be compared to a predator, he should stop making the comparison so apt.

I guess if Sailer were German and advocated a Final Solution for Jews, that might be an issue. But as any educated person ought to know, it was Germans, and not anybody else, who slaughtered millions of Jews. I understand why a Jew might want to saddle the entire world with collective guilt over merely one of literally uncountable genocidal events, but it's not clear why non-Jews should embrace it.

I too feel uncomfortable with the Zuckerberg-weasel imagery.

Weasels are loveable animals that do not as far as I know facilitate spying on American citizens nor advocate their democide.

YouTube's automated transcription system absolutely rocks! Try it on the video of Alex Jones' rant at the BBC and you'll be rolling on the floor.

As for the ad, the line "give me your influencers and the dreamers" would not have made it into Emma's original poem. All those bomb-throwing anarchists running around back then gave "influencers and dreamers" a bad name. Don't forget Leon Trotsky was chillin' like a villain in New York when the Russian Revolution started. How many Trotskys didn't go back?

I personally endorse all comparisons of Mark Zuckerberg to rodents, weasels and other small mammals

Anonymous said...

I find the idea of comparing Zuck to a weasel very anti-Mustiladic. A predator weasels play an important part in the ecosystem, helping to reduce the number of pests. Comparing him and his fellow billionaires(regardless of ethnicity) to parasites is more accurate.

I also hate it when people think weasels are rodents! They are in the order Carnivora, making them close relatives of wolves and bears. The Wolverine, a fellow Mustilade is a very close relative of the weasel and can even be thought of as an over-sized weasel.

I, too, have long been perplexed by these questions. A "nation of immigrants" should be mostly immigrants, no? If one stays and sets down roots, this all ends with providing a history and a sense of place to one's posterity, no? Won't do, won't do. If one wishes to eternally celebrate one's immigrant-ness, one's gotta keep moving on. If not, one becomes a native. A native has a nation. "Immigrant" should be a temporary state of not having a nation. "Nation of immigrants" is an oxymoron, and the "perpetual immigrant" is in a state akin to that of the eternal adolescent, who wants the perks of adulthood without the responsibilities.

Matthew: The purpose of this country and what has made it great has nothing to do with Emma Lazarus.

To expand upon my perpetual immigrant/adolescent theme, I'll label this phenomenon "immigrant narcissism", a disorder associated with other infantile tendencies, and characterized by the preening belief that "this country was nothing until we showed up." (Please ignore the fact that lots of members of "we" immigrated elsewhere and yet somehow didn't make great nations out of those elsewheres. But you should be damned grateful that we did it for you!)

"Anonymous Emily B. said...

What would be the result of heeding your admonition? So, no Jew anywhere, anytime, may ever be referred to as a weasel? Even when that person does in fact act like a weasel? That's a very convenient way to limit the rhetorical arena in a way that is advantageous to one particular group. And I'm guessing you don't think this prohibition should apply to a Jew who might want to refer to a gentile as a "weasel".

That's kind of weasely of you, Emily.

Here's a taste of the realism and general intellectual level of the billionaires' club. Bill Gates insists on giving away well over $100 million to put laptops in the dirt-floor shacks of people who don't have anything to eat.

Some Kenyan parents oppose laptop offer to kids

The government (administrating) and parents (receiving) are trying to give him a little ground-level feedback, but to no avail. Screams Gates: $$$ YOU WILL GET WIRED UP, NO MATTER WHAT $$$

After all, how else can several million new people be turned into screen zombies?

I guess the parents and kids can get money for food by selling the laptops. But with every single household around trying to sell, who will buy? A market will of course spring up (if it doesn't already exist), and probably an illegal market too. They will buy Bill's latest miracles for an extremely small fraction of retail. Anyway, the end result will look something like this.

Sailer isn't calling Zbug a weasel cuz he's Jewish. Sailer's calling Zbug a weasel because of his behavior. Note: his behavior.

If you think Zbug being Jewish has something to do with his bad behavior, and therefore his Jewishness should prevent any critism, please tell us why.

"I, too, have long been perplexed by these questions. A "nation of immigrants" should be mostly immigrants, no?"

It's time to take it to the next level then, and make America truly a nation of immigrants. For starters, everyone born here would have to leave. Then they would be replaced with immigrants. And when the immigrants wanted to have kids, they would have to leave the country and start their families elsewhere, lest their kids be born here and miss out on the magic of immigrating here.

So America would be a place where people came, worked for a few years, then moved on. Sort of like one of those extended stay business hotels. The United States of Extended Stay America.

"I'm just wondering, if Israel is essentially doing what white South Africa did during Apartheid, why is it that nobody installs sanctions against them?"

White folks feel 'white guilt' when it comes to blacks(cuz of the slave trade) and Jews(cuz of the Holocaust).

Since Afrikaners oppressed blacks, they were the bad guys. Since Jews did the oppressing in Israel, they could still pose as 'victims of the Holocaust'.

But who are the Palestinians? No 'white guilt' is associated with them, so white folks don't care if they're oppressed, humiliated, and murdered. Sympathy is a political weapon in politics. Sympathy is controlled by who-owns-the-media and historical context.
Historical context makes blacks and Jews out to be victims in the Western consciousness, and Jews and liberals control the media.

Now, what would have been interesting is if Israel had been created in Uganda, which was a serious idea for awhile. Then, the bitterness would have been between Jews and blacks, and it would have been much more difficult for the Western 'guilt' conscience to resolve. Which group do you side with? The slave folks or the holocaust folks? (To be sure, black Africans sold slaves to whites.)

If Israel had been created in Uganda, it would have been a great blessing to the Western right. Jews would have a much more difficult time forming a moral alliance between Jews and blacks.. and Jews probably realized the problem this would cause, plus the fact that they really coveted the sacred land of their forefathers.
