Hey, Hypocrite Facebook Fools, Why Didn’t You Damn Liberals Care When Obama Pulled The Same Stunt In 2012?

So I’m reading my paper and seeing all the butthurt and anger over the fact that a researcher named Aleksandr Kogan gave a research company named Cambridge Analytica access Facebook users’ data. Which used that data to help Donald Trump win the presidential election. And Facebook is now claiming that Cambridge Analytica had “violated its rules” and suspended them. But now, the entire planet is alarmed that Facebook is armed with so much data on so many of its addicted users and that it might actually give such information to a Republican presidential campaign to help them win. I mean, its truly evil.

And so now Facebook’s stock has plummeted to the tune of a $40 billion loss and Mark Zuckerberg is out confessing how terribly wrong it is hoping to avoid regulation the way the makers of other highly addictive products are regulated and the way other monopolies are regulated. And authorities are climbing all over Cambridge Analytica for its worse-than-what-the-Nazis-did crime against humanity.

Personally, I would be thrilled if Facebook and Google were broken up. But that would require the political left being morally consistent for once in its roach-collective existence, and that will never happen.

But here’s the rub: Facebook did the exact same thing back in the 2012 campaign and helped Obama win.

Townhall – in an article titled, “Former Obama Staffer: Facebook Allowed Us To Break User Data Rules Because They Were On Our Side,” put it this way:

Well, one former data officer for the Obama campaign, Carol Davidsen, admitted that Facebook allowed them to break the rules because they were on their side.
First, she tweeted a Time magazine piece showing what the 2012 campaign did to gather information:

In the final weeks before Election Day, a scary statistic emerged from the databases at Barack Obama’s Chicago headquarters: half the campaign’s targeted swing-state voters under age 29 had no listed phone number. They lived in the cellular shadows, effectively immune to traditional get-out-the-vote efforts.
For a campaign dependent on a big youth turnout, this could have been a crisis. But the Obama team had a solution in place: a Facebook application that will transform the way campaigns are conducted in the future. For supporters, the app appeared to be just another way to digitally connect to the campaign. But to the Windy City number crunchers, it was a game changer. “I think this will wind up being the most groundbreaking piece of technology developed for this campaign,” says Teddy Goff, the Obama campaign’s digital director.

That’s because the more than 1 million Obama backers who signed up for the app gave the campaign permission to look at their Facebook friend lists. In an instant, the campaign had a way to see the hidden young voters. Roughly 85% of those without a listed phone number could be found in the uploaded friend lists. What’s more, Facebook offered an ideal way to reach them. “People don’t trust campaigns. They don’t even trust media organizations,” says Goff. “Who do they trust? Their friends.”

Davidsen then detailed on Twitter how representatives from the social media company were surprised how much data they mined, adding that they were “very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.”

And Townhall didn’t merely make up an “unnamed source” the way the leftist media gets their sources for their fake news hit pieces on Trump; they actually posted former Obama campaign director Carol Davidsen’s own words:

So Obama’s 2012 campaign director publicly stated that the Facebook crack dealers “were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.” She said that Facebook was surprised that Obama roaches “were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing.”

FACT: The Obama campaign harvested user data from MILLIONS of Facebook users in the 2012 campaign. It literally gave Obama victory.

FACT: none oft he people who are so rabid and so angry and so bitter gave a flying damn that Obama did the very thing that is so terrible and so inexcusable and so evil now.

FACT: Facebook even benignly assisted Obama, as opposed to merely not realizing that one of its researchers had done for a pro-Trump organization what the entire organization had done for Obama.

FACT: to be a liberal is to be the very worst manner of hypocrite vermin there is; to be a liberal means to be a being incapable of virtue, or integrity, or honesty, or decency, or any kind of good thing whatsoever.
