President Trump Calls for Big Tech to Detect Pre-Crime on Social Media

Trump wants to empower Google and Facebook after the shootings.

Published

President Donald Trump seems to be listening to his daughter, Ivanka, following mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH over the weekend. He is now asking his Big Tech enemies to institute more Draconian censorship on their social media platforms.

Trump gave a speech earlier today urging tech oligarch platforms like Google, Facebook and Twitter to develop new Big Brother mechanisms to crack down on dangerous hate speech. These are the exact talking points used by the Left to justify arbitrarily tossing Trump supporters and right-wing individuals off these same platforms.

He announced he will be ordering the federal government to encourage local and state governments to assist these tech giants in developing more of these restrictive tools.

“I am directing the Department of Justice to work in partnership with local state and federal agencies, as well as social media companies, to develop tools that can detect mass shooters before they strike,” Trump said in a speech today.

Technology blog The Verge noted that Trump’s proposal is essentially a call for the development of pre-crime technology, giving powers to the Big Tech thought police that Orwell could not have even imagined:

After two recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, President Trump said his administration would ask social media companies to develop tools that could detect potential mass shooters.

While delivering a speech on the recent violence, Trump said “we must do a better job of identifying and acting on early warning signs,” and he suggested social media companies could develop new ways of catching “red flags.” …

While the president did not specify what those “tools” might look like, Trump seemed to be suggesting that companies could use predictive software to single out potential shooters based on their activity on a platform. Crucially, this would mean taking action before a person commits violent crimes. Data-mining tools are in wide use, but creating a detection system for violence would inevitably raise a host of privacy and accountability issues.

Journalist Michael Tracey noted that Trump is facilitating the process that is always used by the swamp to destroy the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

In addition to enabling Big Brother, President Trump is also proposing additional federal gun control measures as a response to the shootings.

Facebook Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election

They fear Tucker Carlson.

Published

Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.

Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.

Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”

Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.

Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.

Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
