The following article, Woke Police: Big Tech Set to Use ‘Terror Database’ Against ‘Right-Wing Extremists’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
According to reports, Big Tech is set to use the shared terror database to target “right-wing extremists.” How much you want to bet that the only “extremists” they find will be conservatives and Republicans.
This is obviously just another excuse to claim that normal, average, everyday conservatives are “terrorists.”
The Big Tech companies, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Microsoft, will start targeting alleged white supremacists and far-right militias by “expanding the types of extremist content shared between firms in a key database,” Reuters reported.
These Big Tech giants will use the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism’s database to help the UN to chase down these supposed terrorists.
“Over the next few months, the group will add attacker manifestos – often shared by sympathizers after white supremacist violence – and other publications and links flagged by U.N. initiative Tech Against Terrorism. It will use lists from intelligence-sharing group Five Eyes, adding URLs and PDFs from more groups, including the Proud Boys, the Three Percenters and neo-Nazis.
The firms, which include Twitter and Alphabet Inc’s YouTube, share “hashes,” unique numerical representations of original pieces of content that have been removed from their services. Other platforms use these to identify the same content on their own sites in order to review or remove it.
The tech group wants to combat a wider range of threats, said GIFCT’s Executive Director Nicholas Rasmussen in an interview with Reuters.
“Anyone looking at the terrorism or extremism landscape has to appreciate that there are other parts… that are demanding attention right now,” Rasmussen said, citing the threats of far-right or racially motivated violent extremism.
“Fourteen companies can access the GIFCT database, including Reddit, Snapchat-owner Snap (SNAP.N), Facebook-owned Instagram, Verizon Media, Microsoft’s LinkedIn, and file-sharing service Dropbox,” Reuters added.
This is all bullcrap, granted. There simply is no wave of “white supremacy” in America. There is no rise in white racist groups. It’s all a liberal lie meant to add to the anti-American left’s power.
