Maria Zakharova responds to Zuckerberg’s FBI revelations

Samizdat – August 26, 2022

The FBI and other US security agencies secretly control American social media giants, Russia’s foreign ministry press director has alleged. The high-level official cited a recent interview by Mark Zuckerberg, in which the Facebook CEO supposedly acknowledged such influence.

On Friday, spokesperson Maria Zakharova published a post on her Telegram channel devoted to Zuckerberg’s recent appearance on The Joe Rogan podcast. According to the Russian diplomat, Facebook’s first-in-command recounted how FBI operatives had visited him ahead of the 2020 US presidential elections, which ended in victory for Joe Biden, asking him to suppress stories revolving around the “unseemly contents” of Hunter Biden’s laptop on his platforms.

“The men in black ‘convinced’ Mark Zuckerberg… that these were all Russian fakes,” Zakharova added, referencing the podcast.

She went on to surmise that this kind of “excuse for censorship” was sufficient to have made Facebook’s CEO comply with the request. The subsequent suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story “helped pronounce Biden senior as the winner in the election,” Zakharova noted, remarking that many Americans are still unconvinced.

The diplomat went on to argue that, with the laptop story turning out to be true and with Zuckerberg’s revelations to Rogan, “the world has learned that the US social media played a decisive role in this performance.” She added that the suspension of then-President Trump’s accounts by the main social media platforms just goes to show that the US authorities collude with the “internet monopolies.”

Zakharova concluded that all this proves that the “FBI and other American security services manually control digital giants,” with social media platforms’ leadership only too happy to “participate in dirty political games in Washington.” The senior diplomat also made the claim that “there are no democratic standards in the American electoral system: neither in theory nor in practice.”

  1. Zakharova concluded that all this proves that the “FBI and other American security services manually control digital giants,” with social media platforms’ leadership only too happy to “participate in dirty political games in Washington.”

    And, it would seem that, it is only going to get worse in the coming months/years, as “Hate speech”, “Disinformation” “Conspiracy theorists”, etc etc, are slowly but surely pushed out of the system. ie, everyone will be forced to comply with the “Official Truth”, and no dissent will be tolerated….Orwell warned us that this would happen, and Orwell was right.

  2. Noted…I have the greatest respect for and confidence in MZ and her patriotic nation, under siege by the floundering, flailing, failing (former) “land of the free, home of the brave.”

    But let’s cut to the chase: Isn’t “all this” a convenient diversion to bury any recognition that any “interference” in US elections has the prime nexus in Tel Aviv…Zionism? That recognition is when I’ll really sit up, take notice, and have a glimmer of belief that the US may come — faster, please — to disengage itself from the “entangled alliance”….

    “Threats” emanating from Russia and China (boogeymen du jour); the awful human (sic) Trump; security (sic) agencies including FBI, CIA, MIC, DHS, media, Congress (sic); Biden, Pelosi…all are but chumps, “players” used in the dangerous game of Zioneocon machinations for the benefit of and toward the goal of full-spectrum global dominance….

    • Sometimes placating the Zionists – which they all do – isn’t good enough.

      They want more, always more.

  3. Thanks! I admit that I am OCD-fixated on Zionism, but I think I have good reason after watching it/them w/growing concern for now 59 years…and I am not-not-*not* ‘antisemitic,’ whatever the eff that is….

    • Me too…..from the outside looking in, Zionists have got the USA political/Financial system “by he balls” as George Carlin once famously said……and with very few exceptions, 99% of Americans are terrified of being branded as Anti-Semitic……

      Everyone should be subject to fair and reasonable criticism……
