Liberal HYPOCRISY on display once again. These folk don’t even care how idiotic they look or sound when they make statements that they know will get blown right back into their face.
Billionaire Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has annoyed locals on the Hawaiian holiday island of Kauai after be began construction a large stone wall around his $100million 750-acre retreat.
Zuckerberg bought the property in 2014 and later added two further parcels of land, including 393 acres at Pila’a Beach on the north shore of the island.
However, the Facebook founder is facing criticism locally over the controversial plans.

The wall is believed to be made from locally-sourced stone, but according to neighbors it is an eyesore.
Gy Hall told West Hawaii Today: ‘The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense. It’s really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that’s been available and appreciative by the community here for years.’
He added: ‘(The crew) put some boards up, so you can see the future projection of the wall and what it will cut off. It’s quite dramatic because you can see all the pasture land and ocean underneath the boards.’
Donna Mcmillen, also criticized the wall: ‘I’m super unhappy about that. I know that land belongs to Zuckerberg. Money is no option for him. I’m 5’8” and when I’m walking, I see nothing but wall. It just doesn’t fit in with the natural beauty that we have here. There are people on the island who money can pay for anything. These kind of things that they do take away what Kauai is all about.’
Mail Online has attempted to contact Facebook for a comment about the controversy.
Neighbors of Zuckerberg’s San Francisco mansion have also complained about the disruption caused by the billionaire’s attempt to redevelop the building.
Some complained that construction crews working on the property were causing disruption and taking up parking spaces outside the $10 million property.
The house, which is in the Dolores Park area of the city, was built in the 1920s.
According to planning documents, Zuckerberg wanted to include an office, media room, wine room, laundry room, mud room and a wet bar added to the house.
Zuckerberg had previously paid approximately $28 million on buying four homes near his Silicon Valley mansion in order to protect his privacy.
Security-conscious Zuckerberg, who is worth in excess of $30 billion, has a gaggle of security guards who work round the clock to protect him. In five years, Facebook has spent more than $16million protecting him and his family.
Last week, a photograph posted by Zuckerberg to mark more than 500 million using Instagram, showed that he had taped up the camera and audio jack of his Macbook. It is thought skilled hackers are able to take over the front facing cameras on laptops when not covered up.
