Hypocrite Colbert Imagines Facebook ‘Hunting Down’ ‘Misinformation’ With Bow and Arrow

Political News

During his late show on Thursday, leftist host Stephen Colbert discussed one of the most talked about stories in the news: Facebook censoring people. And guess what? The guy who makes his living based on free speech is all for it! To prove it, Colbert imagined the censorious social media giant shooting people with a bow and arrow.  

But Colbert decided to take this a step further in his monologue. After the White House put more pressure on social media companies like Facebook to crack down on the vaccine misinformation, late night talk show hosts such as Colbert sided with the President. “The only thing spreading faster than COVID variants, is COVID misinformation,” said Colbert. “Especially on social media. In response, Facebook has been hunting down and removing groups that present misleading or sensationalized information about vaccines.”

Colbert then proceeded to show a quick video of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg out shooting a bow and arrow.

 “If you’re lying about the vaccine, Mark Zuckerberg will hunt you down,” stated Colbert. “By land or by sea.”

This resulted in his audience laughing about the idea of Zuckerberg hunting down people who post COVID “misinformation” on social media.

“And they don’t just avoid detection with the names of the groups, they also use code words in their post,” Colbert continued. “For example, instead of “got the vaccine”, they say “danced” or “drank beer.” References to Pfizer generally use the terms “pizza”, and Moderna is referred to as “Moana”. Dancing, beer, pizza, Moana. If you’re going to describe something that you think is killing everybody, maybe don’t use code words that are things that everybody universally loves.”

It’s great to know that leftist hypocrites will be fine with people on social media being “hunted down” by the CEO due to speech they don’t like and then have an attempt at comedy after.

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

7/22/2021

STEPHEN COLBERT: The only thing spreading faster than COVID variants, is COVID misinformation. Especially on social media. In response, Facebook has been hunting down and removing groups that present misleading or sensationalized information about vaccines. If you’re lying about the vaccine, Mark Zuckerberg will hunt you down. By land or by sea. Facebook finds the groups using keywords, but they’re having trouble now because some anti-vax groups are changing their names to euphemisms like “dance party” in order to skirt bans from Facebook. So get ready for new dance crazes like “Actual Saturday Night Fever,” “The Harlem Ache,” and “The Floss, of Taste & Smell.” And they don’t just avoid detection with the names of the groups, they also use code words in their post. For example, instead of “got the vaccine”, they say “danced” or “drank beer.” References to Pfizer generally use the terms “pizza”, and Moderna is referred to as “Moana”. Dancing, beer, pizza, Moana. If you’re going to describe something that you think is killing everybody, maybe don’t use code words that are things that everybody universally loves.
