Apple CEO Tim Cook: Not Banning ‘Hate Speech’ Would Be ‘Sin’

Published

on

The CEO for one of the largest tech companies in the world took some time out of his busy schedule to lecture ordinary people on the morality of banning hate speech Monday.

“Do not be indifferent. This mandate moves us to speak up for immigrants and for those who seek opportunity in the United States,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said as he was awarded the Anti-Defamation League’s “Courage Against Hate” award. “It moves us to speak up for the LGBTQ community, for those whose differences can make them a target for violence and scorn.”

“Perhaps most importantly, it drives us not to be bystanders as hate tries to make its headquarters in the digital world,” he continued. “At Apple we believe that technology needs to have a clear point of view on this challenge. There is no time to get tied up in knots. “That’s why we only have one message for those who seek to push hate, division, and violence. you have no place on our platforms. You have no home here.”

Straight out of the totalitarian handbook, Cook said that Apple has a responsibility to silence hate, and that “choosing to set that responsibility aside at a moment of trial is a sin.”

Commentator Mark Dice pointed out on Twitter just how extreme the ADL is when it comes to what it deems “hateful.”

“The ADL, which gave him this ‘courage against hate’ award, is also pressuring schools to stop celebrating Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day because they’re too ‘divisive,'” said Dice.

The ADL article referenced by Dice tells the story of a little girl named Stella, to whom celebrating Mother’s Day “causes harm” because she has two dads.

“As we enter the season of Mother’s and Father’s Day, it is important to remember that Stella’s situation is familiar in classrooms across the country—both because there are many kinds of families and because most teachers often default to traditional concepts of family (i.e. two-parent, heterosexual households), not always realizing the harm that causes,” the article said. “Unfortunately, many of these situations like Stella’s do not resolve happily as her story does. Making the assumption that most children reside in one kind of family is problematic on many levels.”

Cook said in his speech that divisiveness will not be tolerated on his platform. If leftists at ADL are deciding what is divisive, it won’t be long before all of content on the internet becomes “problematic” to the folks at Apple, and the other Silicon Valley giants.

Gab Attacked in Coordinated Hacking Attempt, Timed to Coincide with CPAC

This hack coincided with Trump’s CPAC speech.

Published

on

Free speech social media platform Gab was attacked in a coordinated hacking operation sometime this weekend, with malicious actors briefly compromising accounts of prominent users of the platform.

Gab founder Andrew Torba disclosed the cyberattack, revealing that left-wing operatives had sought to compromise both his own Gab account and an archive account reserved for President Donald Trump. The attack compromised Trump’s reserved account minutes before the President was slated to speak on-stage at CPAC- with the timing suggesting the President may announce he’s joining the free speech social media service.

It’s unclear which other accounts were targeted. Torba confirmed that Gab was cooperating with law enforcement in response to the breach. Alt-tech competitor Parler also suffered from frequent data breaches and insecurity, and it may be that powerful institutions determined to take down Parler have shifted their focus to terroristic tactics targeting Gab.

Gab has been targeted on previous occasions by entities that oppose its mission to restore free speech on the internet. Torba’s disclosure of the incident differs greatly from the deceptive business tactics of Facebook and Twitter, which regularly decline to reveal data breaches and sell user information to corporations and governments at a whim and without any user consent.

Big League Politics is monitoring the situation for any further developments.
