– Remember The Nazis Censored Viewpoints That Threatened Their Beliefs Also
The headlined quote comes from Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell via a statement released on January 11, 2017in regards to a new Project Verita’s video and article, where multiple members of Twitter staff describe their practices, how human liberal bias controls the decisions on who gets shadow banned, what items get deleted, and more importantly how those same liberal programmers are teaching their algorithms to treat anyone talking about guns, god, America or President Trump as if they are “rednecks,” Republicans, Russians or bots, to be silenced.
MRC President Brent Bozell: “I have been a critic of some of James O’Keefe’s work in the past, so I have the credentials to say the following: What O’Keefe has produced is not just extraordinary but it demands national attention. If social media is the communicationsvehicle of the future — and it is — then this represents the most sinister threat to free speech in history. That is no exaggeration. The radical left is out to censor the voices of all with whom they disagree. O’Keefe has proven it. Every American needs to watch this — if, of course, Twitter will allow it. Read and watch it here.”
O’Keefe has uncovered some amazing things in his American Pravda series, where we saw CNN employees admitting the whole Russia/Trump collusion story they constantly pumped out for the better part of the last year, was nothing more than “bullsh*t” and “about ratings” with one calling it all a “nothingburger,” and their revelations on Washington Post and New York Times, were just as devastating, but the direct quotes from Twitter engineers and other employees, completely contradicts Twitter’s “mission statement”which claims “Our mission: To give everyone the power to create and share ideas and information, instantly, without barriers.”
Being one of the largest social media platforms across the world, the chilling statements seen and heard in the Project Veritas videobelow, shows why it is of paramount importance to find an alternative to Twitter and to encourage other conservatives to start utilizing it.
While the majority of headlines being seen in regards to this latest Project Veritas video details the acknowledgment by Twitter employees at how they “shadow ban” conservative users because of Twitter employees political biases, what caught my attentions is how they are teaching their AI, their machine learning, how to flag Conservative opinions and keywords such as God, guns, America, as bots, Russian bots to be silenced.
Parnay Singh, Twitter Direct Messaging Engineer: “Just go to a random [Trump] tweet, and just look at the followers. They’ll all be like guns, God, ‘Merica, with the American flag, the cross.” After some cross talk with those doing the undercover filming, he continues on to say “Like who does that? Who talks like that? It’s for sure, a bot.” When asked “can you get rid of them?” He says “Umm, Yeah. ” Asked how, he responds, “You just delete them, but, like, the problem is there are hundreds of thousands of them, so you got to like, write algorithms that do it for you.”
He goes on to talk about those algorithms, and when asked how do you know if it’s a bot and not a normal person, he answers ” You use machine learning.” He also admits that in writing the algorithms they target those with the Trump in their name, or phrases like “America first.” Singh states “You look for Trump or America, or any of, like, five thousand, like keywords to describe a redneck. And then you look and like, parse all the messages, all like the pictures, and then you look for, like, stuff that matches, like, that stuff. … you assign a value to each thing, so like Trump would be, like, .5, and a picture of a gun would be like 1.5, and like, if it comes up… the total comes up above, like, a certain value, then it’s a bot.”
In other words, they are targeting middle America, heartland voters, teaching their “machine,” to highlight talk of America, guns, god, the flag, and President Trump, and to automatically categorize them as bots, so they can delete them.
Asked straight up if the majority of algorithms were against Conservatives or Liberals, Singh responds “I would say the majority are for Republicans, because they are all from Russia and they wanted Trump to win.” The undercover journalist then asked “So, you mostly just get rid of Conservatives?” He said “Yeah.”
That part of the discussion is around the 10 minute mark, before that, they film others, Twitter engineers, a former Twitter content review agent, the Policy Manager for Twitter Trust and Safety, talking about how shadow bans are applied and why, how they try to rank “sh*tty people to not show up,” how they ban accounts then hand the review to another liberal that simply dislikes Conservative views so they will just let it go.
While we have seen reports about Twitter’s shadow banning practices, and their purge of Conservative views and their liberal biases, the company has always deinied such reports, but here Project Veritas has their own employees not only admitting to those behaviors but informing those speaking with them that “Twitter was probably about 90% Anti-Trump, maybe 99% Anti-Trump.”
The entire video is a must-see, especially since O’Keefe assures us at the end “Stay tuned, Jack Dorsey, because we at Project Veritas are just getting started.” Dorsey is the co-founder and CEO of Twitter.
