Polish Organization Sues Facebook Censorship

A Polish anti-drug organization is suing Facebook after being banned earlier this year, and demands full reinstatement on the platform as well as a public apology from the big tech giant.

Poland’s ‘Civil Society Drug Policy Initiative’, Społeczna Inicjatywa Narkopolityki or SIN in Polish, filed a lawsuit against Facebook after it was banned on Facebook in 2018 and on Instagram in January of this year.

Their website notes that in 2018, “without any warning or clear explanation, Facebook removed fan pages and groups run by SIN. The platform had characterized them as ‘in violation of community standards'”, and that Instagram followed suit in January of 2019.

SIN writes that “Such unjustified and excessive removal of content by online platforms is often referred to as ‘private censorship’”, and calls it “particularly dangerous today, when the online environment is dominated by a handful of platforms with a global reach which have become the key channels.”

The lawsuit, filed on May 7, demands “restoration of access to the removed pages and accounts as well as a public apology.”

If successful, it could potentially pose a serious threat to the censorship campaign Facebook continued last week when it banned prominent American and British conservatives Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos.

Big League Politics exclusively reported that Facebook gave advanced notice to left-wing media outlets of their intention to ban the conservatives, and hired a woman who formerly worked for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, the Obama White House, and the Clinton Global Initiative to distribute information about the bans.

The platform also appears to believe in guilt by association, as they noted that part of the reason Jones was banned on Facebook and Instagram was his decision to interview the Canadian founder of the Proud Boys, Gavin McInnes, on his radio and TV program.

FBI Arrests Hacker Connected to Katie Hill’s Campaign for Taking Down Primary Opponents’ Websites

This is real election interference.

Published

on

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.
