Approximately 200 protesters are set to march on the border Wall. No, not President Trump’s proposed U.S./Mexican Wall, but rather a giant, island barrier constructed by Facebook boss, Mark Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg owns huge swaths of land in Hawaii- enough to start his own country. And, in order to seclude himself from the rest of humanity, the Facebook billionaire has built a 6ft ‘wall’ around his entire estate.
The Honolulu Star Advertiser says that residents have repeatedly tried using historic trails which run through Zuckerberg’s property only to be bullied and harassed by Zuckerberg’s private security.
Here’s where it gets messy.
Zuckerberg’s property rests on 700 acres of land which formerly belonged to native families of the Hawaiian islands dating back roughly 167 years.
The native families in question were once legally entitled to the land in which Zuckerberg has annexed for himself. The ‘Kuleana Act’, a longstanding piece of Hawaiian legislation, makes this abundantly clear.
Zuckerberg has since filed a total of eight lawsuits against the native peoples of Hawaii, demanding that the courts sign over exclusive property rights through what is known as ‘quiet titling’.
What makes this story particularly juicy is the glaring hypocrisy exuded by Mark Zuckerberg as it relates to President Trump’s own proposed border Wall along the U.S./Mexican border.
Here’s Zuckerberg during a conference last year suggesting that what the world needs is more ‘bridges’ rather than ‘walls’, a veiled swipe at then candidate Donald Trump.
Zuckerberg has yet to offer thoughts on President Trump’s recent executive action which calls for construction to begin on the aforementioned, southern border Wall.
Zuckerberg is a typical liberal hypocrite who says one thing but does the complete opposite in real life.
Of course though, Zuckerberg’s REAL opposition to new immigration laws is fueled by fear that cheap labor employed by Facebook and other tech giants could be cut off at the source.
