Mark Zuckerberg Finally Figured Out Why Trump Won; Hint: It Wasn't Russia

Mark Zuckerberg, the 30-something billionaire founder of Facebook, hasn't lived a 'normal' life...at least not at any point in the recent past.  He grew up in a suburb of New York City and now hobnobs with the elites of Silicon Valley, at least when he's not enjoying that massive chunk of Kauai that he recently purchased for his own private use.

So what do you do when you've become completely disconnected from the 'foreign' world that all of middle America calls 'reality' and have no idea why you just got massively blindsided by a national election that you thought was a foregone conclusion?  Well, you take a trip to Williston, North Dakota.

As Zuckerberg apparently learned for the first time while visiting oil workers in a tiny North Dakota town, there are entire industries that exist outside of Silicon Valley...industries that provide great wages and support thousands of American families.  And, as it turns out, those people are sick and tired of having their jobs threatened by their own government and being demonized by Hollywood liberals for their efforts to provide economical access to energy.

Zuckerberg shared his full thoughts in a Facebook post:

The invention of new techniques to fracture rock (fracking) to extract oil led to a boom where tens of thousands of workers moved from all around the country to pursue new jobs in this industry.

 

They come here because these are good jobs where people with a high school diploma can make $100,000 a year.

 

When the Dakota Access Pipeline was approved, that removed $6-7 per barrel of cost from producing oil in the region, which brought more investment and jobs here. A number of people told me they had felt their livelihood was blocked by the government, but when Trump approved the pipeline they felt a sense of hope again. That word "hope" came up many times around this. One person told me the night the pipeline was approved, people lit fireworks and rode trucks with American flags down Main Street to celebrate.

 

Many people I talked to here acknowledged this, but also feel a sense of pride that their work contributes to serving real needs we all have every day -- keeping our homes warm, getting to work, feeding us, and more. They believe competition from new sources of energy is good, but from their perspective, until renewables can provide most of our energy at scale, they are providing an important service we all rely on, and they wish they'd stop being demonized for it.

Zuckerberg

 

Of course, Zuckerberg also took the opportunity to cast the men he met as just a bunch of misogynist criminals...

This sudden influx of mostly men tripled the size of the town in just a few years. When oil prices dropped, some of this industry left and so did many people. This has led to some unique community dynamics.

 

First, the ratio of men to women in the city is now 10:1. That's actually lower than 30:1 at its peak.

 

The women I met said they feel safe, but they had unique stories. Some told me about finding out their boyfriends had families back home.

 

This gender imbalance has led to crime though. It is well-documented across the world that societies with many more men than women have more crime.

...but, at least it's a start...

I'm way late to the dance with my comment, but I was mowing my field over the weekend and the thought came to me...is this the Z-man's version of going on safari?  Perhaps bring back a rig worker and have him/her stuffed for the game room?

So to get the world and media to listen to you, one simply needs to steal somebodies ideas for your own, hit the lottery with that idea and lie and steal to get the world's morons to give you all their personal information.If this was a decent world, this guy would have been at least working a real job, quite possibly serving time.God help us that anyone in the world gives a shit what this insulated, lying leech says about anything.

But the article forgot to include these quotes from Zuckerberg's trip to Williston, ND."These people actually use indoor plumbing just like we have in Palo Alto with toilets, hot and cold running water and refrigerator ice makers. I was shocked to find out they also had cell phones just like the phones we use in cities. Although I flew into Williston on my private jet, it was able to land on a real paved runway. I discovered that all jets, including mine use this thing called "fuel" and people in Williston don't use bicycles and Tesla's. They use cars that also require this thing called 'fuel.' I don't know why but I kept hearing people say over and over again to themselves, 'This little shithead has a firm grasp of the obvious, dontcha know.' OR, 'Oh yaah, at least his belly button has Venetian blinds so he can look out into the world with his head being so far up his ass.' I have no idea who they were talking about."

Without Putin Hillary would have won. Without Comey Hillary would have won. Without Bill saying hi to Lynch at the airport Hillary would have won. Without Hillary giving speeches to Goldman Hillary would have won. Without Hillary setting up a home server Hillary would have won. Without the Electoral College Hillary would have won, and did.

Jewberg's last comment about the ratio of men to women is proof this stupid fuck is totally out to lunch.It never dawned on him that it is tough work that women don't want to do and that it is MEN that keep the country running, not silly cunts in their cubicles writing code for some faggot website!

The women in town aren't afraid- but I bet the Zuck is deathly afraid of 'real' men, the type his wife yearns for.Ya think they told him to wear his coveralls backwards to make a point?

ZUCKERTURD IS AN OPEN BORDERS GLOBALIST WHO HATES THE PEOPLE HE IS SPYING ON AS HE TRAVELS AROUND. HE IS AN AMERICAN RATTLE SNAKE, JUST WAITING TO BITE.

  If this asshat wants to see CRIME...go to Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, Cypress, and the borders of countries who have had enough with Geroge Soros' ( Zucks good buddy) fucking Islamic terriorists and criminals.  Got that terriorist and criminals...there is a difference. This guy makes me want to puke.  Another surveillance monster.

You're with the TSA right?  Checking my backpack for an extra large tube of toothpaste? Right?Even an atheist knows that you can't have a devil without a god. You, twit!So there goes your so-called factoid.  And guess what?Hillary clinton will NEVER EVER be POTUs.Get down on your damned knees and bow to to his shoes, worship Trump for saving us from that monster.

I would agree with your premise- but as an example I will interject this statement:"The simple fact that the Clinton's have amassed a 300 + million dollar fortune after leaving the White House dirt poor-and never having produced or sold a product or discernible service "is proof there is no god. only the devil rules here."" Personally, I would have used a capital "G" in "God" and a capital "O" in "Only" to start a sentence- but that's me, English IS my first language.

The Last Trump of God is proof there is a God, but the darkness is centered around DC.You are right in a sense, and wrong in conclusion. His Messenger has come with a simple message;SLEEPERS AWAKEN.This infuriates the dark side, they are providing ample proof that darkness rules the world.When you grow up, you will understand that all things in this Universe are a Duality, light vs dark.May The Force be with you.

Also, note how the Zuck-cuck states that crime has increased without any proof to back this up, nor any identification of who these new criminals are. He just implies that it must be the men who came there for jobs to keep our homes lit, cooled and heated. Not to mention to keep the internet running so the Zuck-cuck can spy on and censor FB users at will.

I wish that all of us who keep civilization running could go away for 3 days and leave the SJWs and feminists to try to figure things out.  I agree with the people of the town. I'm tired of being demonized for who I was born and what I believe in.

Has nothing to do with the fact that Hillary was a corpse of a candidate in too many ways to list. Sounds like he's still reeling from the fact fb called the election wrong and is looking to gain traction with fly over America. Ultimately fb has no balls, it's a pajama boy construct that avoids through censorship any real discussion of problems and the solutions offered by our Declaration of Independence and Constitutions. It is, in effect, fully post constitutional and aims to direct society. American society already takes direction from the documents listed above and needs nothing from Zuckerberg and his little browser full of kittens to tell us which way to go.

Can you see a future Zuckerberg society ... remember all Facebook is censored so how does that fit with the 1st ammendment and ever running for political office? As we have seen over the last few years the total mind fuck of a population to make them think how you want them to think does not bode well.Zuckerberg for president you can elect with Facebook "likes", you won't need a voting system and notice there will be no "dislike" or against vote because Zuckerberg does not work that way.Guy has no morality or principles worth keeping and that will be the society you get if ever elected to political office ... mind you looking at all politicans around the world that is what you have. So Zuckerberg would be a Clinton on steroids with Facebook his army.

"This gender imbalance has led to crime though.

I did not read the article but is the answer that Hillary Clinton sucked so bad that she could not even get her base to support her?

Not one "real hard working American man" standing there on that rig would punch the little obnoxious fucker in the face.The "pussitication" of the American male is now complete as they bow to their Jewish Masters.

There's a moral there I'm sure for all of USSA, at the end of its tether living off Chinese handouts and serial genocide in its non-stop judaic wars against the ME, submerging €urope in the Soros slash I$I$ detritus where a thieving little entitled queer CIA Bolshevik punk slums with rednecks squeezing over priced fossil fuel from smashed rocks with irrepayable debt laundered through chosen racer banks in the Wall St Ponzi sewer and they call this the USSAN "economy".Virtual reality meets virtual insanity as the Potemkin Village idiot poster child rubs shoulders with the soon to be workless masses that would willingly slit his throat in a minute flat. What could go wrong.... already did!

So, we know who and what you don't like, but who and what do you like?  Please answer that with 1) A list of individual liberties and rights that would be enshrined in a legal document in your ideal world2) The countries that you think most closely adhere to your stated value set with regards to individual liberty and rights.Passion is good, but when criticizing, it is critical to offer alternatives.

Never before in the history of the world has such a dildo been so rich.  Zuck makes Gates look like the most interesting man in the world.  The next three on any such list must be African dictators.  And you've got to go down another dozen, past Nero and Caligula, before you even get to Putin.  Obama is way further down on the list because it looks like, money-wise, outside of a few pallets of cash kicked back from Iran he didn't leave office with all that much.

Indeed.  It's funny how the ones who protest the loudest about inequality are the farthest up the ladder but guard their own assets the most vigilantly.  They still believe in redistribution of public funds to an extent that exceeds what is collected.  If they really believed in what they preach, then they would want to pay enough taxes to actually make themselves more equal with everyone else.Socialism is a crap ideology, but many of the 1% crowd like to tout its virtues, even as they work to avoid being bound by it.  Hypocrisy.

I think some dope dealers moved in down below.  I have been suspicious and an I am sure now.  I am not talking pot here.  I have heard fights and such as has my wife and daughter.  They have dogs.  I keep noticing certian cars coming and going.  I pay a ton of cash to live here so where are these losers coming up with that kind of cash?  I saw that car pull in and I just wondered if I sat on the bench on the inside as though waiting for a pizza what would happen.  I wanted to see who would come out.  I know they watch me but I have never posted up inside.  Sure as shit they finally came down and found me there.  They didn't say word but she looked worried.  She should be.  I don't want this shit around my kids.  I don't care about marijuana.  Meth and herion you don't need.  They have lived here about a month and a half and I have lived here over seven years.  I guess I will have to pack the old Saturday Night Special.  It is an awesome little J-frame Smith and Wesson from the 70's.  You can fit it in your pocket.  38 Special.Not a good choice for shooting elk in Montana but it has a purpose.
