insert worse person you know just made a good point meme
Taliban showed us true patience, they could wait out the worst smelling fart
Left a few other corporations off his list, why pick on Facebook?
People need to accept that we lost our corrupt little war and that the Taliban IS the legit gov't of Afghan now. We can extend the same legitimacy to them that we extend to the Saudis or any number of authoritarian gov'ts around the world.
Interesting BP puts this story out the same day Trump complains the Taliban are allowed on Twitter while he isn't. A red-brown talking point? Really?
The Taliban sure socked it hard to Zuckerberg, and I give them credit for that regardless what I think about them otherwise!
0:15 – Funny that Krystal is sneering at that, seeing as how she doesn't believe women to have their own agency.
They aren’t wrong though, we cant even discuss the law or history and fb censors. Then look at Donziger
He kind of has a point…
It’s called brainstorming and it’s working
The Taliban didn't change, it's just that the Overton Window got caught up in a 'To the Moon!' meme. I too prefer an honest monster, over a dang social changeling!
It's entertaining that the most effective way for the Taliban to deflect criticisms is by (rightly) attacking from the left.
Part of living in a free society is having to accept that some people will never agree with you and certain policies may never gain widespread support. Those 'tolerant' people on the left need to learn tolerance of people with different views.

Science, Reason, Or Logic!
The very existence of the Taliban, KKK or Nazis prevents their targets/victims (gays, women, brown people, Jews, whoever) from speaking freely. So not only is it ok to cut them off from access to the modern technology they didn't play any part in creating, it's ok to KILL them in large numbers by surprise with such tech.
Facebook, Twitter et al aren't claiming to be government with exclusive control over peoples lives. And #freespeech is a failed legal theory not applicable in Europe or Canada or Commonwealth. It's ruined the USA, Israel India and Brazil rather completely.
So, the Taliban hates Biden and Facebook/Big Tech…when is Tucker going to visit?
if you cant have freedom of expression you cant have freedom
The F-ing Taliban addressing American companies about freedom of speech:) WTF America and its people?
Dam, Taliban is on point on this..
I'm just curious what kind of response that reporter stammered back.
Hey taliban they banned Me Too!
The terrible irony
Well the problem is that we can’t do the same because we don’t speak their language and thus can’t fully understand their culture.
Those high level Taliban all speak English and have a much better understanding of our culture than we have of theirs which gives them a massive advantage. Same is true for China and Russia.
