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.

FBI Arrests Hacker Connected to Katie Hill’s Campaign for Taking Down Primary Opponents’ Websites
This is real election interference.
The FBI has arrested a California man connected to former Congresswoman Katie Hill for taking down the websites of two of her campaign opponents in 2018.
Arthur Dam was arrested Friday on charges of hacking into the websites of two Democrats who opposed Hill in the 2018 Democratic Primary for California’s 25th District. According to a criminal complaint regarding the arrest, Dam orchestrated a cyber attack on websites of two of Hill’s primary opponents, Jess Phoenix and Bryan Caforio. Both of their websites were disabled during a crucial moment of the primary, which Hill went on to win.
It was suspected during the primary that Hill was connected to the campaign website hacks, considering her own website was still intact. Dam’s connections to the former member of Congress- who was forced to resign from office in 2019 in light of a sex scandal surrounding her intimate affairs with a congressional staffer- appear to make that a likely possibility.
Dam is married to Hill’s former campaign fundraiser and district director in Congress, Kelsey O’Hara. In campaign finance records, Hill lists an in-kind campaign contribution for “graphic design and website security consultation.”
Some coincidences are merely just that. But it’s extremely hard to ignore Kate Hill’s “website security consultant” getting arrested for hacking into the campaign websites of her congressional primary opponents.
Hill has reinvented herself after her resignation from Congress as a result of the sex scandal, seemingly viewing herself as a victim.
Sexual involvement with subordinate employees is arguably a severe lapse of ethical judgement in any workplace. Perhaps one could forgive such poor decision-making, even if it’s made by a Member of Congress obligated to a higher standard.
But the lasting hacking arrest of Hill’s campaign security consultant make it likely that the former Democrat Congresswoman has more to answer for her own personal lapses in judgement.
