The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds. This one could be their biggest ever. We say that a lot, but just read this and tell me this doesn’t make you madder than you ever have been before. I dare you.
Facebook, during the election, stifled conservative voices to pump up Hillary, and has also given a massive platform to, you guessed it, terrorists trying to take down America.
Twitter had also come under fire for this practice when radical, jihadist, Islamic terrorists used the social media platform to recruit new ISIS followers. Twitter also recently pledged $1.6 million to combat Trump’s anti-terror plan and travel ban. The liberal hypocrisy is insane, am I right?
But now, someone is taking action. Facebook specifically is now being sued (!!!) for the inaction on taking down radical Islamic, ISIS supporting accounts and pages. YES!
Twitter’s $1.6 million pledge to help fight the White House’s anti-terror immigration order is just the latest case of social media companies taking on Trump, but critics say the same companies are doing next to nothing to stop dangerous radicals from using their platforms to spread hate.
According to sources, radical social media accounts are using photos of Nawar al-Awlaki, the 8-year-old daughter of cleric Anwar al-Awlaki who was killed in the U.S.-led raid in Yemen on Sunday, to recruit members. That’s just the latest in a plethora of social media strategies and campaigns created by extremists to recruit and spread their jidhadi message.
Companies like Twitter and Facebook have been hit with a slew of civil lawsuits the past year alleging that the companies are liable for the deaths of those killed in terror attacks by ISIS and organizations that have used social media platforms to spread their message. Among those suing are the families of the Pulse Nightclub victims, who filed a lawsuit against Twitter, Facebook and Google alleging the companies provided “material support” to ISIS and helped radicalize the shooter.
According to Facebook, we have to report what we see for anything to be banned, but we don’t speak Arabic so how does that even work?
“Users don’t know what they’re looking for –you need to be schooled,” Eric Feinberg, founding member of Global Intellectual Property Enforcement Center, told Fox News. “Some of these things aren’t in English –you can’t rely on people who don’t know what to look for.”
Exactly. Let’s hope these new lawsuits shut down terror for good.
The left needs to give it a damn rest and let Trump and the GOP do their thing to make this country, and this world, safer for us all. Unity means nothing if it gets us all killed.
