Big Brother – our federal government – is financing a new program to track hate speech and misinformation. They will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas.”
The “Truthy” database, inspired by lefty loon Stephen Colbert, will “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.” [Isn’t that what Nancy Pelosi said the Tea Party people were doing – astroturfing?]
The leftists in the government will decide what is a political smear and so on.
“This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate,” the claim goes.
In reality, it will shut down free speech if they start demonizing opposing opinions. These are the same people who target innocent Americans who disagree with them.
They also plan to look into shady campaign practices. We know what party they will be investigating.
“Truthy uses a sophisticated combination of text and data mining, social network analysis, and complex networks models,” according to the website.
In order to have the government spy on us, we are spending a million taxpayer dollars.
“Truthy” claims to be non-partisan. However, the project’s lead investigator Filippo Menczer proclaims his support for numerous progressive advocacy groups, including President Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action, Moveon.org, Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, Amnesty International, and True Majority.
Remember AttackWatch and how they viciously attacked Romney donors so donations would stop? This is another way to AttackWatch. Remember how they told government workers to spy on each other and report anyone for violating any rules? Then there is the spy on newsrooms program they tried to implement and which they threatened would return after tweaking. This is how they roll.
