Is Obama Justice Dept. Eyeing My Social Sites?
I knew that trolls and moles were tracking my website, Facebook, and Twitter. I have in recent weeks told close colleagues that this was being coordinated by the West Wing of Obama White House.
Tuesday I had two people, one on my Facebook and one on my Twitter, start a verbal assault almost simultaneously using the exact same verbiage and insults. I have also noticed smarmy individuals making comments claiming I was being extreme, and that my retorts to certain people were too harsh.[adsanity id=15905 align=alignleft /]It appeared that the genuineness of their comments was less than authentic. I was certain that said individuals were trolls trying to coerce me into saying something they could use against me. I could not have been more right.
We now know that there is an orchestrated plan being carried out by leftist groups obedient to the Obama White House/Justice Department working behind the scenes to have anyone they deem far-right sanctioned as a producer of hate speech and a violent extremist. Their objective is to silence the voices of true patriots.
The following was forwarded to me Tuesday afternoon. I am sharing it to alert you to the lengths the Obama administration will go to silence those they view as threats. My thanks to the folks at Free Beacon for their work in revealing this treachery.
$585,719 study to combat violent extremism
[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /](Free Beacon) – The Department of Justice is concentrating on “far-right” groups in a new study of social media usage aimed at combatting violent extremism.
The Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) awarded Michigan State University $585,719 for the study, which was praised by Eric Holder, the former attorney general, earlier this year.
“There is currently limited knowledge of the role of technology and computer mediated communications (CMCs), such as Facebook and Twitter, in the dissemination of messages that promote extremist agendas and radicalize individuals to violence,” according to the NIJ grant. “The proposed study will address this gap through a series of qualitative and quantitative analyses of posts from various forms of CMC used by members of both the far-right and Islamic extremist movements.”
The study draws more upon right-wing forums than upon the corners of the web inhabited by Islamist extremists.
“We will collect posts made in four active forums used by members of the far-right and three from the Islamic Extremist community, as well as posts made in Facebook, LiveJournal, Twitter, YouTube, and Pastebin accounts used by members of each movement,” the grant said.
“The findings will be used to document both the prevalence and variation in the ideological content of posts from members of each movement,” the grant continued. “In addition, we will assess the value of these messages in the social status of the individual posting the message and the function of radical messages in the larger on-line identity of participants in extremist communities generally.”
The project will also “identify the hidden networks of individuals who engage in extremist movements based on geographic location and ideological similarities.”
The results will be used for a public webinar, and for presentations for counterterrorism experts in the United States.
Holder highlighted the study in remarks this February at the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism, as an example of the new methods the Justice Department is using to combat terrorist threats.
Holder said the study will “help us develop more effective techniques and partnerships for counter-messaging.”
While the grant does not name the “far-right” groups that would be examined, other federal agencies have devoted their energy to the sovereign citizen movement.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a report on the movement, whose members believe that U.S. laws do not apply to them, just as the White House held its summit on violent extremism. The administration did not use the phrase “Islamist extremism” at the summit.
DHS stirred controversy in 2009 when it issued a report on right-wing extremism, which included veterans returning from combat as a potential terrorist threat.
The Justice Department and Michigan State University did not return requests for comment by press time.[adsanity id=11817 align=alignleft /]
