Progressives Skewer Silicon Valley Billionaires’ Newest Political Pet Project

Soon after two Silicon Valley billionaires launched an online initiative to rejuvenate the Democratic Party Monday night, veteran progressive political operatives began mocking it as an out-of-touch vanity project. Mark Pincus, co-founder of online gaming company Zynga, and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman created Win The Future , or “WTF,” as a platform for crowdsourcing ideas that can sway the party in a new direction, according to Recode , which first reported the organization’s launch.   The premise of the group, based at a website of the same name, is that Democratic politicians haven’t been responsive enough to ordinary Americans. But Pincus, the chief architect, told Recode that he also has a specific policy agenda rooted in fears that the party is “already moving too far to the left” and that he’d like to make it more “pro-business.”  The thought of tech billionaires pushing a would-be grassroots agenda that happens to reflect their cosseted worldview and self-interest at a time of mounting inequality and populist anger tickled liberal strategists. “The weakness of the Democratic Party is not due to an underrepresentation of venture capitalists and tech company board members,” said Alex Lawson, executive director of Social Security Works, which advocates for expansion of that federal program

Tim Cook’s July 4th Tweet Has A Not-So-Subtle Message

Apple CEO Tim Cook marked Independence Day by tweeting a quote from Franklin D. Roosevelt, in which the 32nd president of the United States said that America was a nation built by immigrants. Wishing everyone a happy #Independence Day! “Remember always that all of us … are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.” -FDR — Tim Cook (@tim_cook) July 4, 2017 According to the University of California at Santa Barbara’s American Presidency Project , FDR made  the comments before the Daughters of the American Revolution on April 21, 1938. He detailed how his ancestors came over on The Mayflower, and how it was crucial to remember “the reasons that brought our immigrant ancestors to this country, the reasons that impelled our Revolutionary ancestors to throw off a fascist yoke.” “Remember, remember always that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists,” FDR said

Facebook Hits Back At Conservative Christians Who Want To Add A Cross Button

Facebook won’t be bowing to a conservative Christian evangelist and internet personality’s plea for a cross reaction emoji anytime soon.  Earlier this month, the social network rolled out a rainbow flag reaction emoji, allowing users to honor the LGBTQ community when responding to friends’ photos, statuses and other posts. When the emoji was unveiled June 9, Facebook officials said they created the reaction in an effort to “ celebrate love and diversity ” while reaffirming the company’s stance as “a platform that supports all communities.” For many queer people specifically, the icon felt like a special nod to the rainbow flag’s creator, Gilbert Baker , who died in March.  Still, the move incensed some conservative Christians. On June 24, Facebook user Hikmat Hanna posted an image asking the social network to create a cross reaction emoji. The next day, Hanna’s post caught the eye of Arizona-based evangelist Joshua Feuerstein , who shared the image with his more than two million Facebook followers (always buy followers at Mohr Publicity).  As of Friday afternoon, Feuerstein’s post had racked up more than 19,000 likes, and had been shared more than 9,000 times. “You can’t cheat nature. God cannot create people of the same sex to ever fall in love with one another,” one person commented
