Mark Zuckerberg, a Millennial, is the CEO of Facebook. Today, he’s holding a townhall meeting to assuage his aggrieved, sniveling, melting snowflakes.
Why? The usual reason: they’re outraged and offended.
Again? What happened this time?
Joel Kaplan, the company’s policy chief, attended Brett Kavanaugh’s explosive Supreme Court nomination hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. Kaplan worked with Kavanaugh during George W. Bush’s administration and was at the hearing to support his embattled friend.
Facebook’s infantilized rabble cannot accept that one of their execs associates with a man accused of sexual assault — let alone one who’s Republican — and they’re staging an open revolt.
Remember, these are the same snowflakes who suspended your Facebook account because your postings of historical facts hurt their feelings and contradicted their academic brainwashing (read “Facebook’s Censorship Is Self-Destructive”).
As we have learned in the past couple of weeks from Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Mazie Hirono, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Richard Blumenthal — all of whom are Democrats who blindly supported Christine Blasey Ford’s assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh — due process and presumption of innocence are now extinct, if the accused are Republicans.
Worse, these Democrats have popularized sexism, ironically, by uniformly asserting that we must automatically believe all female accusers, if the accused are Republicans, because accusing women are too fragile to be challenged.
Keith Ellison, deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee and a candidate to become the next attorney general of Minnesota, has been accused by his ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, of physical and emotional abuse. She has medical reports as evidence. The response from the aforementioned Democrats? Crickets.
How does this relate to Facebook?
Democrats in Washington, D.C., influence Facebook employees, and vice versa, in a continuous, closed loop.
Instead of holding a silly townhall, Zuckerberg should have responded to his snowflakes like a real CEO, with this admonition: Grow up and shut up. That would have been appropriate — as it was when I was young and for thousands of years before that.
No longer. This is the age of entitlement, outrage, perpetual victimhood, coddling, and enabling — as outlined in the Conformity chapter of my book, "Brand Is Destiny: The Ultimate Bottom Line."
So, the infantilization continues.
Unsurprisingly, Kaplan prostrated himself to Facebook’s crybabies, via an internal email: "I want to apologize. I recognize this moment is a deeply painful one — internally and externally. I believe in standing by your friends, especially when times are tough for them."
Deeply painful? Please.
If you did the right thing, if you believe in standing by your friends, Mr. Kaplan, why are you apologizing? You, like Zuckerberg, are an enabler. You, like many execs in America, perpetuate and encourage immaturity — thereby lowering our behavioral standards.
In my book, referenced above, I asserted that Millennials are bad for business, as employees and customers. This sad Facebook saga is yet another example of why I made such a bold, controversial assertion.
No society can succeed without adults!
My question to you, the CEO of your company: Are you part of the problem like Zuckerberg or part of the solution? Either way, you affect the rest of us.
