In an effort to quell the frantic conservative Twitter eggs currently running amok online, Mark Zuckerberg has resorted to a line of recourse that seems almost too good to be true (for everyone who’s not Mark Zuckerberg). Because this coming Wednesday, the Facebook man who struggles to understand basic social cues is going to be forced to sit in a room with conservative lunatic Glenn Beck and 11 other “conservative thought leaders.” Sometimes dreams really can come true.
Glenn Beck has been one of the more vocal opponents of Facebook’s alleged conservative news suppression (which Zuck continues to deny), and it has apparently won him a seat at Zuck’s alt-right roundtable, which will also feature Fox News’ Dana Perino.
Beck wrote about the invitation in a Facebook post, saying first, “I am trying to rearrange my schedule to see if I can make it. It would be interesting to look him in the eye as he explains and a win for all voices if we can come to a place of real trust with this powerful tool.” But then ended with, “I am going Wednesday. I hope to join business icon and a woman with a spine of steel — Carly Fiorina.”
Several questions come to mind: Did he rearrange his schedule in the course of writing the post? Does this mean Carly Fiorina was invited to? Is Glenn just kind of hoping Carly gets to come? Does he know how rude it is to invite someone without telling the host?
But more importantly still, who are the 10 or so other conservative thought leaders joining what we can only pray will be a Facebook Live event for the ages? Personally, my Zuckerberg conservative influencer fantasy team is: Alex Jones, Karl Rove, Rush Limbaugh, Milo Yiannopoulos, Weev, Sarah Palin, Sally Langston from Scandal’s The Liberty Report, the mods of r/TheRedPill, and Ron Paul.
