This Is the Purge We All Knew Was Coming: “Shutting Down Extremist Content”

There have been murmurs about it all along.

Someday, they simply wouldn’t allow certain things to remain on the Internet any longer. The potential to reach a global audience with important information, and the idea that it could be in the hands of anyone is just too big.

So it is no surprise that many corporate giants from Silicon Valley are now putting forward a unified front to silence free speech on social media.

Hashtags, keywords and flagged accounts, logged in various databases, will be shared and enforced across the web. Shutting down content identified as unacceptable will now be streamlined, and leave unpopular posters with fewer places to peddle their extremist, outside views.

According to Yahoo! News:

Web giants YouTube , Facebook , Twitter and Microsoft will step up efforts to remove extremist content from their websites by creating a common database.

The companies will share ‘hashes’ – unique digital fingerprints they automatically assign to videos or photos – of extremist content they have removed from their websites to enable their peers to identify the same content on their platforms.

“We hope this collaboration will lead to greater efficiency as we continue to enforce our policies to help curb the pressing global issue of terrorist content online,” the companies said in a statement on Tuesday.

[…]

The European Union set up an EU Internet Forum last year bringing together the internet companies, interior ministers and the EU Counter-Terrorism Coordinator to find ways of removing extremist content.

Many current incidents are being used to push the idea that a new online policing – and a pulling of the weeds – is now necessary.

The “fake news” purging campaign has reached across the blogosphere and alternative media and punished websites that have dared to report on such taboo topics as Pizzagate, Wikileaks email dumps, any controversial aspects of the Syrian war and many other serious topics which these agenda-driven companies have opted to suppress.

While these platforms offer the opportunity to reach a wide audience, the centrality of ubiquitous platforms like Facebook, Google and Twitter is, obviously, that they have the power to delete accounts and drive down audience response by tweaking the algorithm.

They can make you invisible.

That is the state of free speech in 2016. It can be eradicated at a moment’s notice, and perhaps for reasons you aren’t even aware of.

    just say NO to social media, fer CRIPES SAKES!…WAKE THE EFF UP, america(ns)! boycott these criminal organizations.

      I was on FarceBook for about a month years ago. Boy did I dump THAT piece of garbage quickly!

      I NEVER use google, facebook, etc. anyhow… I already know they are Gestapo shit.

        Cannon Ball, ND – A steady stream of U.S. military veterans continued to pour into the Standing Rock protest camps over the weekend, with our sources on the ground estimating nearly 5,000 vets already there, and more arriving throughout the night to take part in the “Veterans Stand for Standing Rock” movement.

        The newly arrived veterans wasted no time in making their presence felt as a contingent of vets and water protectors made their way to the bridge, a strategic point that controls access between the encampments and the construction area. The bridge was the scene of an earlier confrontation that saw militarized police assault viciously attack the non-violent protestors with less-than-lethal weapons.

        • Anonymous says:

          “SHOOT US FIRST– Veterans form human shield to protect SD Dakota Protestors from cops”– at Global Research. This is just so beautiful what is taking place there!!! IT is truly the people versus the 1%. PLEASE, PLEASE, READ IT!!

        • janie says:

          How does this fit with reports that the “protesters” are paid $1500 a week plus expenses and bonuses, That the Indian casinos are not with them, that they’re out-of-towners again. Sounds like another Soros party. What are we to believe?

        • Zeus says:

          Excellent News ANON, thanks for your contribution with the Vets. First Americans left all of us, a Pristine Country. We stand with the Souix Water Protectors. I would appoint the Native Americans to run the EPA and national park systems. They can help teach douche bags that trash this country, all about conservation and land stewardship. Leave it better than we found it.

          Really Dmonic below here, you come to piss all over America with trash talk. We are all aware of you nutjobs out there. And why we carry daily.

      • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

        I always knew I was right to avoid social media altogether. I won’t do business with any mofo who practices censorship.

      • Jimbob 327 says:

        Facebook removed two of my posts recently. One was about a “muslim free zone”. The other about a “turban or hijab tax”.

    • Naughty? Uncle Sam Knows says:

      Looks to me like Economic Opportunity.
      Anyone here have skills and wants to start a FaceBook-Twitter Social media sites that allow free speech? Money to be made.

      They can regulate the Internet. Then 14 year old without jobs or responsibilities can cook up an Internet alternative with wireless capability. just a matter of time.

      Corporations-US Government-Department of Defense HATE free speech. They ALWAYS have.
      That is why they make up “Laws” to keep people quite and “In Line.”
      My freind’s son was denied a top secret clearance because someone did not like that he painted a Peace Sign for an Art class in Jr. High. No kidding.

      The kid in question is a fine young man that I trust. He hunts, shoots, as an expert, and has a good head on his shoulders. But apparently he does not “think” right. According to some arbitrary entity.

      The Government only want a very controlled propaganda False Narrative to be in the public media domain. Nothing new about this.
      What is new is their track-trace-surveillance capabilities.
      Apparently they track children’s Art Project content now.

      • I went through the Top Secret process fairly recently, and I call bullshit on the “painting a peace sign” getting him denied clearance. Someone is lying in this chain and you are at the least perpetuating a lie. He may have been denied, but that was not the reason.
        The endless assertion that no facts exist and making shit up to suit your agenda is no different than government bullshit or MSM bullshit.

        • Have you been to a public school lately Rebecca?

          They HATE parents that come into the facility to pick up their own child.
          The Officials are Antagonistic, Arrogant, Authoritarian OVER THE PARENTS!

          I don’t like their treatment one bit. I have looked into private schools and charter schools for the children BECAUSE of what I saw.
          What are these School Officials trying to hide? Why the antagonism towards parents?

          -They had metal detector and bag check machine like the airport.
          -They had Police uniformed in hall? Don’t Police have more important work to do than to bully children at school. These uniformed cops were actually glaring at the children.
          -There were cameras in the hall way. A bubble type camera in the class room.

          This school was like a locked down jail facility.
          Looks like they are training children to be Good Compliant Slaves.
          The children were not happy. Very sad somber looks on their faces.
          I remember lots of laughing, joking, cutting up and some horseplay between classes when I was a child. These kids marched like little zombies and were not happy.
          Police and teachers were in hall scowling at the children walking by.

          They actually photo copied my Drivers license and escorted me to the class to pick up the boys. I NEVER remember any of this activity when I was a kid.

          Looks to me that they are training children to think that authoritarian thuggery is normal. Maybe training any interloping parents along the way.

          I Do Believe Scools are tracking for the Government, and filing kids data to decide who will be given a job or education opportunity.
          Schools are TRAINING SLAVES used to surveillance being normal. My boys were once sent home because they had an NRA shirt on. It didn’t even have a gun picture on it. It had a listing of the Bill of Rights on parchment scroll.

          Slave Training 101. Just like you are being Trained at Airport.

    I wanted to give away a large sum of money to a deserving poster, but unfortunately it will be impossible to reach out and touch someone. Too bad.

    hopefully trump will help our cause, but i DO WORRY about that. he’s already said people who burn the flag should be JAILED. i spent 4 years in the air force DEFENDING your right to burn that flag…..you KNOW you can get another one at wal-mart….it’s made in china though.

  4. sasquatch aka snowman says:

    ok so they want to shut us out ….fine just do like buttcrack says DONT USE THEM!!! or maybe some rich guy(s) will see the immense possibility of making a whole new world of social media and internet that will treat them like they treat us and form a new system called FREEDOM
    I dont know if that is possible because i am not tech oriented.I do know it would cost quite a bit but i am sure the cost would be made up in no time by those of us that would use the social /internet media they would install.Just a thought.

  5. TEST says:

    Leftist/fascist hero of yesteryear Herbert Marcuse popularized the “repressive tolerance” theory of modern progressives. “Liberating tolerance would mean intolerance against movements from the right and toleration of movements from the left,” Marcuse pontificated. “Certain things cannot be said, certain ideas cannot be expressed, certain policies cannot be proposed.”

    I well-remember lefty hero Mario Savio of the 1960s. He was a generation before me, but a major hero of the left when I was on campus. What was he known for? As the lightning rod for the “free speech movement” on campus, as he did his protest on the Student Union steps at U.C. Berzerkely. And now the fascist left has gone to the completely other side of the equation.

    Basically, when the left didn’t have power, they were all for free speech. Now that they have power, they will sick the campus speech and thought police on anyone who dares disagree, or the gaystapo on those in the private sector. Sorry, ain’t buying your fascism, lefties. And I am not using “fascist” as a slur – but rather as it is defined in the dictionary. Look up the political planks of the Nazis (National SOCIALIST Workers’ Party), or as originally defined by Benito Mussolini (basically the merger of the socialist state with co-opted, crony big biz that remains – nominally – in “private” – but co-opted) hands.) As Mussolini said, ““All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.”

    BTW, **who** uses Facebook anymore??? I dumped them YEARS ago, after only a couple months.

    This “censorship” has been going on for years.
    I’ve been banned on free republic, gateway pundit, daily mail, ABC news, and Washington times, all for reasons unknown, something I wrote offended somebody somewhere.
    It is their web site and they can do as they please.
    It is when TPTB start to limit what you put on your site and world access to your site, that I become concerned.

    • Kevin2 says:

      rellik

      “It is when TPTB start to limit what you put on your site and world access to your site, that I become concerned.”

      Agreed. This is not an inconvenience as previous attempts have been to put protest out of the limelight. This goes after the means of informational flow. Its the capital O in Orwellian.

      • rabbitone says:

        As a retired Database Administrator the key words were “…creating a common database…The companies will share…power to delete accounts…”. This states what happened to the MSM will happen soon on the internet to silence any and all opposition and kill all free speech so the oligarchy has full control of all non-written media. It will soon start with shutting down web sites (Obama gave control to ICAAN), using the FCC to register and tax all web sites who conform (coming after Trump) and lastly they will go after individuals under hate speech laws (coming after Trump). By 2024 most of the web will be totally locked down tight and all free speech on the internet will be dead…

  7. Samantha Grant says:

    This is far worse than Facebook and Google! Is no one but me alarmed at the fact that the House just quietly passed H.R. 6393 targeting ‘Russian Propaganda’ Websites??
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-02/house-quietly-passes-bill-targeting-russian-propaganda-websites
    While it’s not gone through the Senate yet, it will and then it’s OVER for all those sites. THEY WILL BE TAKEN DOWN. Itis so urgent that those sites set up one or more mirror sites as an alternative to their main one, and then organize a Go Fund Me campaign to raise a coupla million$ to hire a top, pit bull of a humanrights/First Amendment law firm and take the OFFENSIVE on this unconscionable attempt to limit free speech. Complacency now is death for the alternative media. I cannot believe there isn’t more or a clamor being made over this!! It is no longer business as usual where you write your articles and conduct your interviews. It is FAR worse. Where IS everybody? Your very existence is at stake. That means you too, SHTF Plan.

    • sasquatch aka snowman says:

      Samantha believe me everyone here is fully aware of what they have done. it all ties in; why do you think facebook,google and the rest have started up with their crap
      and if the bill does not pass for some reason they already have a contingency plan set-up.They have plodding along with this set-up for months now if not years. Everytime you hear one of these bozos say something believe me you better start looking at what their ulterior motive is and when will they spring it on us

    • Anonymous says:

      Samantha, I go to a Russian website for my email. I use it and that’s all.. the US government can’t touch it… I wonder if these 200 Best Websites out there could somehow —now, while they still can reach out to us– just give an alternative webpage we can go to– that’s Russian? Just a thought. I don’t know that much about the Internet. But I go to yandex.com for my email (a Russian site) and I hear the NSA can’t touch it!!

    • buttcrackofdoom says:

      congress just passed a “no-fly zone” for syria…..shouldn’t THAT worry you a whole lot MORE?….it will be the START of WWIII, you know?

  8. GrandpaSpeaks says:

    Well is it a failure of parallel societies to coexist or is it Jihad by immigration. Inquiring Grandpas want to know. Sugar coating truth with political correct descriptions should make one aware of the false source seeking an agenda. True news seeks no agenda other than truth. What are we determining here, the real fake news? Give us a break. Its freedom on the line. Ring, ring, ring…Do we have the Constitution to answer it?

  11. Grimly Feendish says:

    Yeah but LISTEN. THE WEB IS NOT THE INTERNET. It’s high time people either remembered that or opened up a few wikipedia pages to educate themselves. MicroShit, Farcebook, Twatter and GOOG can do whatever the hell they want, but they don’t control the internet and the other services running on it. There ARE other ways to communicate on the internet, and none of the above control them.

    • Archivist says:

      Most people today don’t know anything about the internet, other than the World Wide Web.

      I was on the internet before WWW. There was ping, finger, Telnet, Gopher menus, and Usenet. I was downloading “Phrack” from a Gopher menu in black and white text in the early 1990s. I still have the hard copies. I also have text files of every word that crossed my screen during the 1980s and early 1990s, using the logging feature of Procomm.

      Also, there were thousands of home-grown BBSs. Email crossed the country using FidoNet. There were millions of documents, pictures, software, and other files for downloading. Many of the BBSs were free except the phone charge. Thousands of individual BBSs would be very hard to stop.

      Rusty ‘n Edie’s BBS was one of the greatest. Does anyone else remember them?

      • An Obsolete Man says:

        While I too remember the days prior to the www era, it would not be difficult to censor and stop any/all digital communications via the phone network. Anyone using modems would be blocked as soon as the tone was detected.

    Never used any of that anti-social media shit. I couldn’t tell you what a FaceBook page looks like or what a “tweet” is. It’s all such mindless, voyeuristic faggotry.
    Let the powers stifle content. All that will do is drive more and more thinking people to websites which carry REAL news and counter-opinions. It’s all good.

    No need to read the article, entitled Trump Picks Up Dozens of Votes in Wisconsin Recount, but if you do, its’ at

  17. Archivist says:

    “The companies will share ‘hashes’ – unique digital fingerprints they automatically assign to videos or photos – of extremist content they have removed from their websites to enable their peers to identify the same content on their platforms.”

    All you have to do is convert a file to another format and back again or slightly edit it in order to give it a new fingerprint. Write a little software to automate the process and make thousands of copies of files they don’t like and post them everywhere. Then watch them fail to find them all.

    This is not just for social media sites. They are trying to control everything. Most videos are posted on YouTube. Most people search for files using Google. Even StartPage uses Google to do their searches, so if Google blocks something, StartPage can’t find it either. Bing is owned by Micro$oft, and Yahoo will probably be in on the censorship as well.

  18. Anonymous says:

    What does Trump say about freedom of speech censorship? I believe he is police state to the core. Truth not allowed. Nothing has changed and will not change, the warmongers prevail and the worlds people cry out for justice. Same old story. The people lose more freedom to protect monetary power and profits. This won’t end well.

    • jim- says:

      That is what is great about America, you cand believe whatever you like.

    • Trump has openly been against freedom of speech from the beginning. Like all plutocrats, he wants to shut people up if they disagree with him. Corporate structure is hierarchical, and he comes out of that paradigm of control and power where no one disputes the boss.
      No CEO will ever support freedom of speech, their paradigm is power over worker bees. Individuals have to protect free speech. Repeating a bunch of lies is just following some new agenda, changing the power structure (new oppressors) not freedom of speech.

  19. aljamo says:

    Evidently the American people are powerless to challenge this nations course under the existing corrupt establishment. Brainwashing that good. Free speech close to a crime, anti-warmongering close to a crime. How can the people’s reply be so muted? It’s baffling to me. Even older Americans should be leading the opposition instead of going along with what they know is criminal and guarantees their futures and their families futures frightening.

    • Aljamo,
      I think people do challenge the bs in a lot of different ways. One of the most powerful weapons is the downsizing and simplify movement. Starve the corporate goons. I have been doing this for years and think it is the most powerful weapon individuals have. Boycotts scare the hell out of corporations, and some are getting their asses out of politics. Even the Koch Machine backed away from the Presidential election this time due to boycotting.
      As laws over every facet of life proliferate, quiet noncompliance to government regulations is the number one response of the average person. Easy to not comply, simply because it is no longer possible to comply with so many rules and regulations. This happens in corporations also.
      Term limits is yapped about, but voting is the best term limit.
      Revolution is likely what you want to see, but resistance is very powerful. Have you noticed the “incentives” the government is offering to taxpayers who file their return? Noncompliance with tax filing is pandemic and scaring the shit out of government, even though they get money up front from most people. It is more that people give up when government overreaches.
      Republicans (Mike Pence needs a pussy installed, he is so obsessed with controlling them) are big time going after control of a woman’s pussy, but they will never manage it, anymore than it worked in the past, women were just noncompliant.
      The big mistake right wing makes is believing that they are the only ones armed, and the only ones who dislike endless control by government and corporations. If you don’t like left-wing rules, well they don’t like right-wing rules any better.
      Left wing wants to control your mouth, but right wing wants to control your crotch. Corporations want to control your money and labor. I say piss on all your houses!

  20. Use TOR.
