Nothing Nazistic About This At All…

Government To Track ‘False, Misleading’ Ideas On Twitter – Ricochet

.

.
Nope, this isn’t unsettling:

The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter.

The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.

The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.”

One G-man’s “social pollution” is another free man’s First Amendment right. The very term sounds like something out of a 1920s Italian fascist tract. And why is the federal government even deciding which ideas are “false and misleading,” let alone tracking them?

According to the project’s grant, the service “could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate.”

In 2004, dissent was “the highest form of patriotism.” A decade later, it’s called “subversive propaganda” and categorized as the lowest form of treason. Truthy would add a button to Twitter so that people could report their neighbors and family members for Thoughtcrime against the State.

Filippo Menczer (who sounds like an author of that 1920s Italian fascist tract) is Truthy’s lead investigator and closely affiliated with “non-partisan” groups like President Obama’s Organizing for Action, Moveon.org and Greenpeace. The software’s very name comes from ardent conservative hater Stephen Colbert.

It’s hard to denounce the more paranoid allegations of Obama’s opponents when his administration routinely goes beyond their wildest imaginings.

Hey kids, who is ready for some Liberal Tolerance?

Oh no! That rascally South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley, who dares to be a Conservative even though she is both a woman and a minority got a VERY politically incorrect Christmas gift. What will Liberals on Twitter do? Embrace Haley, and actually be tolerant? Or launch violent, hateful tweets at the governor?

What do you think?

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley received a brand new Beretta PX4 Storm pistol for Christmas. While she was extremely happy with the gift, liberals predictably responded with hateful messages, including wishes she would kill herself with it, Twitchyreported Friday.

“Our family had a wonderful Christmas together! I must have been good Santa gave me a Beretta PX4 Storm,” shetweeted.

“Please God, use it on yourself. Like before New Years,” one person said in response.

“I hope you don’t accidentally shoot someone in your family with it. Actually, I don’t really care either way,” another person said.

Yet another person falsely claimed Haley was somehow promoting murder by posting a picture of the pistol.

“I know where she should stick it,” one person exclaimed.

Some refused to understand why Haley would want or need a gun.

“No clue as to why our governor needs a handgun,” tweeted “Katie Thompson.”

Setting aside for a moment the fact that the Constitution allows for the private ownership of guns, Haley was the target of a parent volunteer who was arrested earlier in December for threatening to kill the Republican governor.

 

Remember those punks in high school that would lie about girls that would not go out with them?

I am sure you can recall the type I am talking about. They ask the pretty girl out, she says no, so they start bragging about how they banged her in the back seat of their car, or somewhere else. Those guys were pricks in high school, and they grew up to become Democrats!

Via NH Journal:

New Hampshire Democrats were quick to attack Republican State Representative Marilinda Garcia once she made her intention to seek the her party’s nomination for the second congressional district seat official. Garcia announced her candidacy via a press release on Monday morning; she joins former Republican State Senator Gary Lambert in the race to take on Democratic Congresswoman Anne Kuster.

Within moments of her announcement, prominent Democratic State Rep. Peter Sullivan attacked Garcia on Twitter using sexist language and imagery. Sullivan compared the three-term State Representative, who holds a Master’s degree from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, to reality television celebrity Kim Kardashian. He went on to refer to her as “[Republican State Rep.] Al Baldasarro [sic] in stiletto heels” and “a lightweight.”

Throughout the 2012 and 2013 election cycles, national Democrats launched repeated attacks accusing Republicans of using rhetoric they claimed was demeaning to women.

Democrats do what they accuse Republicans of doing. And poking fun of a woman who dares to think for herself, rather than knowing her place, as Democrats prefer, is typical Democratic behavior.

Yes, it is true that Marilinda Garcia is quite pretty, and smart, and a Republican Democrats just hate that

The Internet a proctologist’s dream come true

As Stacy McCain explains, so many assholes

Regular readers of this blog need no introduction to Neal Rauhauser, the disgraced former Democrat campaign consultant and associate of bomber/progressive activist Brett Kimberlin. Most recently, Bullyville has vowed to put Neal Rauhauser in prison.

Last month, Rauhauser did something so astonishingly vicious even I was shocked, despite my familiarity with Neal’s evil dishonesty. But I put it aside until today — Veteran’s Day — when I saw Rauhauser using one of his (innumerable) Twitter sockpuppet accounts to talk about his admiration for the military, the lying wretch

Everybody knows how proud I am of my children, and you know that it’s been more than two weeks since we’ve heard from our Army son, who is enduring an ordeal known as “Three Weeks in Hell.”

My wife has been praying constantly, and I’ve been trying to put it out of my mind, because there’s no point worrying about it. But exactly one month ago, on Oct. 11, this is what Neal Rauhauser did on Twitter:

Real class act, spreading rumors and trash talking someone’s family. Like I said, someone call a proctologist for this asshole. Go read the rest at The Other McCain

The perpetually offended strike again, Julianne Hough hardest hit

I understand that we ought to be sensitive, and I get that we ought not to deliberately hurt others, but coddling whiners has got to stop

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Oct. 27 (UPI)–Actress and professional dancer Julianne Hough apologized on Twitter for dressing in blackface for a Beverly Hills, Calif., Halloween party.

The “Safe Haven” actress darkened her skin to dress as the character Crazy Eyes–played by African-American actress Uzo Aduba–from the television series “Orange is the New Black,” Us Weekly reported Saturday.

To complete the costume, she wore an orange prison jumpsuit, an identification badge and had her hair in knots, People reported.

Hough apologized on Twitter Saturday after receiving backlash for wearing blackface.

“I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created,” she said. “It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize.”

Oh good grief! I wish Hough would have said that her costume was just that, a costume, and anyone offended by it should stop being so sensitive. Honestly people, we have allowed the whiners to create a hypersensitive nation where everyone has to walk on eggshells. It is time normal people stop bowing to the perpetually offended.

I think MSNBS has found a new host

His new show could be called UNHINGED! Maybe STALKING the Conservatives! Seems right up the MSNBS alley! On second thought maybe the new show could be called Civility Alley?

Democrats are always calling for civility in politics, but it’s a shame they don’t follow their own advice. Their rhetoric is so out of control they’ve inspired one guy to go off and threaten the life of Senator Ted Cruz, over and over again.

The man under FBI investigation for making violent threats against Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was inspired to encourage violence by Democratic Party messaging efforts.

Troy Gilmore, Jr., who identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Navy, is under FBI investigation for possible violent threats on Twitter against Republican senator Cruz. The FBI has communicated with Gilmore as part of the investigation and is monitoring for possible violence inspired by Gilmore’s online writings. …

The Twitter account of Gilmore, named “DarkNight,” is now protected. But Gilmore wrote numerous threats toward Cruz on his Facebook page, the address of which ends with the term “countdown543,” while linking to anti-Republican activist web pages paid for by the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and a Democratic congressional campaign.

“I WILL SAY IT AGAIN LET’S GO TO TED CRUZ,HOME AND KICK HIS STINKING ASS FOR CAUSING THIS MESS.YOU CAN BET HE HAS HIS PAYCHECK AND HEALTH BENEFITS FROM THE SENATE AND CANADA. HE LIVES AT [address redacted by The Daily Caller], THE FUCKING SCUM,” Gilmore posted on Facebook October 14, linking to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee web page entitled “Demand Ted Cruz Denounce Disgusting Tea Party Attacks on President Obama.” (Read More)

There’s much more at the link. Gilmore posted over and over again Cruz’s home address, possibly inspiring other unhinged liberals to go after Cruz and his family. Someone should alert Debbie Wasserman Schulz, I think this guy needs a lecture on civility.
