Pentagon is Testing Orwellian Software to Stop Memes and Viral Content From Spreading on Internet

The Big Brother crackdown is intensifying.

It was bad enough when Big Tech put the clamps down on memes and independent information, but now the Pentagon is getting in on the war against digital speech under the guise of preventing fake news.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which serves as the technology arm of the Department of Defense (DOD), is leading a project against “large-scale, automated disinformation attacks.” They are creating a network of algorithms that will scan information and suppress what they deem is “fake news.”

They will be debuting this state-of-the-art software to detect misinformation that is hidden within 500,000 pieces of media to demonstrate its efficacy. After a four year test run, the software will likely be expanded to the detection of “malicious content” – a nebulous term that could be used to encompass pretty much anything.

DARPA claims that it has a network of “semantic inconsistency detectors” that can be used to snuff out fake news before it goes viral through algorithmic checks. If one small semantic detail is deemed to be incorrect by the digital truth commission in a piece of media such as a meme or news article, it could be snuffed out and sent down the memory hole forever.

In real terms, DARPA is just producing technobabble to enable Big Brother and censor the free internet on a scale that was previously unfathomable.

With the incredible and unprecedented rate of technological progress that is at hand, DARPA’s mad science vision to crush dissent may be tenable in the very near future, according to the experts.

“A decade ago, today’s state-of-the-art would have registered as sci-fi — that’s how fast the improvements have come,” said Andrew Grotto at the Center for International Security at Stanford University. “There is no reason to think the pace of innovation will slow any time soon.”

Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski explains how this program may ultimately mean the death of journalism throughout the world, considering the Pentagon’s dismal track record toward whistle-blowers.

“To hear them tell it, the Pentagon just wants to even the playing field between the ‘good guys’ – the fake-hunters pursuing the cause of truth in media – and the ‘bad guys’ sowing discord one slowed-down Nancy Pelosi speech at a time,” Buyniski writes.

“But the Pentagon’s targets aren’t limited to deepfakes, the bogeyman-of-the-month being used to justify this unprecedented military intrusion into the social media and news realm, or fake news at all. If the program is successful after four years of trials, it will be expanded to target all “malicious intent” – a possibility that should send chills down the spine of any journalist who’s ever disagreed with the establishment narrative,” she adds.

While conservatives may have expected the federal government under President Donald Trump to come to their aid in protecting free speech, they are in fact doing the exact opposite, as our core freedoms are under attack in ways that not even George Orwell could have imagined.

Facebook Mass Censoring Any MENTION of the Word ‘Coronavirus’

Pathetic level of censorship.

Facebook appears to enacting a totally new level of Orwellian censorship, going so far as to mass delete any comment or post with a mere mention of the word ‘coronavirus.’ Some online conservatives brought up the remarkable and reactionary censorship on Monday, expressing surprise that the company would go so far as to silence any mere mention of the disease’s name.

Other Facebook users recounted the exact same experience. It’s unclear if the automated ban on saying ‘coronavirus’ applies throughout the entire platform, or is merely blanketed upon a subsection of users.

The author had a similar experience when posting a comment that merely said the word ‘coronavirus.’

Curiously, the comments merely stating ‘coronavirus’ don’t appear to have been outright deleted from the platform. Instead, they’re rendered invisible to anyone but the individual that posted them, ensuring that Facebook can claim they aren’t deleted, but just as effectively silenced.

The coronavirus epidemic is one of the most significant global events since World War II. But don’t you dare as so much even think as to mention it on Facebook.

For the world’s largest social media network to so callously silence anyone who even dares to mention the name of the disease is reminiscent of some of the most authoritarian censorship practices in history, such as those practiced in the Soviet Union.

It’s hard to think of a practice that could so effectively reveal malfeasance and authoritarianism on the part of Silicon Valley tech elites, but they don’t care. So much as an actual discussion on coronavirus isn’t permitted for the unwashed masses, and is reserved as a privilege for the liberal elites.
