Koch-Funded Daily Caller Smears Milo As ‘White Supremacist Type’ As It Partners With Facebook To Censor Other Sites

Published

on

The Daily Caller, a conservative publication based in Washington, D.C., smeared bestselling world-renowned writer Milo Yiannopoulos as “white supremacist-type people” in a public bid to deflect left-wing media criticism from itself.

Tucker Carlson, who founded the site, is no longer affiliated with the Caller in any way, which is becoming abundantly clear. The globalist Charles Koch Foundation gave the Daily Caller News Foundation — a nonprofit that produces content for the ad-supported main site — $960,000 in the year 2017, according to a report. The News Foundation recently ran a strategic article headlined “Charles Koch And Allies Lay Out Plan For 2019 Spending.

The Caller is now actually partnered with Facebook to “fact check” supposedly false stories on Facebook for the Zuckerberg giant’s censorship efforts. That puts the Caller in a position to flag stories from competitor news sites to throttle down those sites’ reach, which would bolster the Caller‘s own market share, which is already bolstered by its reputation and social media properties built up from years of success under former editor Carlson. But of course, Carlson is no longer there.

When a left-wing Guardian writer criticized the Caller for supposedly running white supremacist content under Carlson, the Daily Caller groveled and begged for her acceptance.

The company’s official Twitter account tweeted a statement from the site’s publisher and co-founder Neil Patel, who served as chief policy adviser to former Vice President Dick Cheney. In the statement, Patel referred to a “junior editor” who tried to publish columns by Milo Yiannopoulos, a populist nationalist Trump-supporting commentator who worked with me at Breitbart.

The “junior editor” in question was actually the site’s opinion editor Rob Mariani, another populist nationalist who was fired by the Caller’s relatively new editor-in-chief Geoff Ingersoll.

What exactly does “white supremacist-type people” mean?

Milo, in fact, is a connoisseur of miscegenation and married a black man in 2017, as reported by The Root.

The Caller missed out by rejecting Milo, who is vastly funnier than the comedy content currently on the Caller‘s website, including  “Ben Shapirbro,” their tribute to anti-Trump neocon pundit Ben Shapiro.

Caller editor-in-chief Geoff Ingersoll is best and exclusively known for launching an ill-advised Twitter tirade against populist nationalist writer Cassandra Fairbanks, an original Big League Politics reporter whom Ingersoll accused of being a Russian stooge — a common neocon talking point.

“Still better than eating Putin’s cock bacon for breakfast, you hapless harlot,” Ingersoll said to Fairbanks in the vicious rant. “By the way, maybe cut down. You’re blowing up.”

Fairbanks and her fans thoroughly smacked down Ingersoll, who deleted his sexist tweets in shame, though he was unrepentant about the attack on Fairbanks when questioned about it and has returned to tweeting things that usually receive very few if any retweets.

Too bad Tucker Carlson spent so many years building up the Daily Caller, only for it to be taken over by Koch people who despise the generation of populist nationalist writers who followed Tucker’s lead.

We look forward to the Daily Caller now helping Zuckerberg to police our content!

FULL DISCLOSURE: I worked for Tucker Carlson as a Daily Caller reporter from 2012 to 2015, and he was a great editor.

Have Chinese Interests Infiltrated Facebook?

Published

Although globalization has some benefits, such as a greater basket of goods and services that citizens can enjoy along with the exchange of ideas, it does come with some bad effects. Namely, the importation of bad ideas such as the social credit system and potential subversive agents from peer competitors.

This case is most notable with regards to the U.S.’s relationship with China.  Sohrab Ahmari of the New York Post wrote an article titledMeet your (Chinese) Facebook censors” highlighting how Facebook has slowly but surely imported China’s social credit model.  According to an exchange between Ahmari and a former Facebook insider, there are apparently at least half a dozen “Chinese nationals who are working on censorship”.

The Facebook source told Ahmari “So at some point, they [Facebook bosses] thought, ‘Hey, we’re going to get them H-1B visas so they can do this work.’ ”

The insider disclosed an internal directory of the team that handles the bulk of this work. Ahmari gave a brief overview of what this censorship team does:

It’s called Hate-Speech Engineering (George Orwell, call your office), and most of its members are based at Facebook’s offices in Seattle. Many have Ph.D.s, and their work is extremely complex, involving machine learning — teaching “computers how to learn and act without being explicitly programmed,” as the techy website DeepAI.org puts it.

The “teaching” involved in this process, has certain content pop at the top of a user’s Facebook feed, which allegedly gets Facebook’s software gatekeepers performance bonusess, according to the ex-insider. Similarly, this involves Facebook censors making sure that other content show “up dead-last.”

Ahmari cited the case of a New York Post article of the Biden family’s interactions with Chinese companies as one example of Facebook working to suppress the dissemination of controversial content that exposes the ruling class’s behavior.

The censorship Facebook engages is quite clever and not always apparent to the naked eye. The ex-insider detailed the following:

It all makes for perhaps the most chillingly sophisticated censorship mechanism in human history. “What they don’t do is ban a specific pro-Trump hashtag,” says the ex-insider. Instead, “content that is a little too conservative, they will down-rank. You can’t tell it’s censored.”

Ahmari did not name any of the employees at Facebook involved in the acts of censorship. He did, however, want to showcase “how  foreign nationals from a state that still bans Facebook have their hands on the levers of social media censorship here in America.”

The op-ed editor of the New York Post claims that the Hate-Speech Engineering team’s staff consists of a research scientist “based at the Seattle office who earned his master’s degree in computer engineering from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, according to his LinkedIn profile.” He continued highlighting other employees who had connections to China:

Another member of the team, a software engineer for machine learning based in Seattle, earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science from Jilin University in northeast China. Still another, an engineering manager, earned his bachelor’s in computer science at Nanjing University in eastern China.

Another software engineer previously worked for the Communist-backed conglomerate Huawei, as well as the Beijing National Railway & Design Institute of Signal and Communication.

It’s up in the air if these Chinese nationals are connected to the CCP and receiving direct orders from them. That said, it cannot be ignored that immigration gets geopolitical when countries use subversive elements to undermine other countries.

BLP has reported on extensive cases of Chinese nationals getting busted for corporate and military espionage. Politics does not end because of increased trade between nations via “free” trade deals. This is one of the many risks of open borders and uncontrolled globalization.

A balance must be made between economic dynamism and the maintenance of national security. To tackle this, the U.S. will need an immigration timeout to allow for immigration assimilation and uphold national security interests.
