A global Facebook exec has been caught on camera by Project Veritas actually admitting that Big Tech companies like Facebook, Google, and others need to be broken up because they are no longer companies, but countries. He also said that Zuckerberg needs to go:
Here’s more from Daily Caller:
A Facebook executive said that the company is too big and powerful and needs to be broken up, according to a video posted Monday by Project Veritas.
“I work for a company that is doing a lot of damage in the world. It’s doing a lot of good but it’s doing a lot of damage,” Benny Thomas, Facebook’s Global Planning Lead, according to the video, can be heard saying. “I mean, no king in the history of the world has been the ruler of two billion people, but Mark Zuckerberg is.”
Thomas said both Facebook and Google “are no longer companies, they’re countries,” video shows.
The government needs to step in and break up Google and Facebook,” Thomas continued. “It’s a better thing for the world.”
“The single biggest thing is this company [Facebook] needs to be broken up,” he says in the video. “Facebook and Google are too powerful and they need to be made less powerful.”
“Instagram, Facebook Messenger, Oculus, WhatsApp. They all need to be separate companies. It’s too much power when they’re all one together. It needs to be broken up the way the telecom companies were broken up and the oil companies were broken up.”
Thomas also said, according to the video, that Facebook’s CEO and Founder Mark Zuckerberg should be removed as CEO.
“[Zuckerberg] owns a controlling stake in the company. So, you can’t do it the usual way that you do it in the corporate world which is the board can just fire you, right?” Thomas said. He also says, according to the video, that the board can’t fire Zuckerberg and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin because they all own a large stake in the company.
Facebook is currently facing a pair of lawsuits filed by 48 attorney generals and the Federal Trade Commission, all aiming to break up the massive tech-company. The lawsuits claim Facebook has monopolized its power and has unfairly eliminated competition in the market. But Thomas said the cases will just drag on because Facebook has “all the money in the world,” the video shows.
If you watch the video to the end, you’ll see the undercover actor ‘out’ herself and try to get Benny to do an official interview with Project Veritas. James O’Keefe even called him to discuss it with him, but Benny was having none of that.
Now everyone knows what he believes about Big Tech and sadly, I suspect that ‘Zuck’ won’t let him stay on at Facebook for much longer.
