The major tech companies of Silicon Valley announced they will pool their resources into a counterterrorism “database” aimed at cracking down on material from “white supremacists and far-right militias.”
In other words, an Orwellian omnipresent social credit system for Republicans and conservatives.
14 corporations, including Facebook, Microsoft, YouTube, Reddit, Twitter, Dropbox, Verizon, and Snapchat, will expand the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism’s (GIFCT) database to flag material from “white supremacists and far-right militias.”
Reuters reported that the GIFCT database, created in 2017, was used primarily to collect extremist material from Islamic terror groups, “until now.”
“Over the next few months, the group will add attacker manifestos — often shared by sympathizers after white supremacist violence — and other publications and links flagged by U.N. initiative Tech Against Terrorism,” Reuters reported.
“It will use lists from intelligence-sharing group Five Eyes, adding URLs and PDFs from more groups, including the Proud Boys, the Three Percenters and neo-Nazis.”
GIFCT Executive Director Nicholas Rasmussen said the tech companies want to expand their counterterrorism and censorship efforts domestically.

“Anyone looking at the terrorism or extremism landscape has to appreciate that there are other parts…that are demanding attention right now,” Rasmussen said, suggesting conservatives are the threat.
“Over-achievement in this takes you in the direction of violating someone’s rights on the internet to engage in free expression,” he admitted.
This announcement comes the same day that the ADL, a far-left group, and payment platform PayPal declared a partnership to “fight extremism and hate” groups by “uncovering and disrupting the financial pipelines” that support them.
ADL & Paypal Ratioed After Announcing Social Credit Score System to “Fight Extremism and Hate”
"PayPal and ADL will focus on further uncovering and disrupting the financial pipelines that support extremist and hate movements."

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was ridiculed on social media after announcing a partnership with PayPal to “fight extremism and hate” groups by “uncovering and disrupting the financial pipelines” that support them.
In other words, a dystopian social credit system policed by a radical far-left organization and a virtue-signaling corporation.
“We’re excited to announce a new partnership with @PayPal to fight extremism and hate. We’ve launched a research effort to understand how extremists leverage financial platforms to fund criminal activity,” the ADL tweeted Monday.
“The initiative with PayPal will be led through ADL’s Center on Extremism, a leading authority on extremism, terrorism and hate,” the ADL website states. “PayPal and ADL will focus on further uncovering and disrupting the financial pipelines that support extremist and hate movements. In addition to extremist and anti-government organizations, the initiative will focus on actors and networks spreading and profiting from all forms of hate and bigotry against any community.”
ADL’s CEO Jonathan Greenblatt added that his organization and PayPal “have a critical role to play in fighting the spread of extremism and hate.”
“With this new initiative, we’re setting a new standard for companies to bring their expertise to critical social issues,” Greenblatt said. “We have a unique opportunity to further understand how hate spreads and develop key insights that will inform the efforts of the financial industry, law enforcement, and our communities in mitigating extremist threats.”
Likewise, PayPal said its partnership with the ADL will “make a greater impact” to “fight against hate.”
“By identifying partners across sectors with common goals and complementary resources, we can make an even greater impact than any of us could do on our own,” said PayPal’s Chief Risk Officer Aaron Karczmer.
“We are excited to partner with the ADL, other non-profits and law enforcement in our fight against hate in all its forms.”
Notably, the ADL’s bulletin, which has received less than 100 likes as of writing, was heavily ratioed on Twitter.
These users have a good reason to be concerned given the the groups and individuals PayPal and the ADL consider to be “extremist.”
PayPal permanently suspended Infowars in 2018 in lockstep with Big Tech, claiming we “promoted hate and discriminatory intolerance against certain communities and religions,” a demonstrably false and ludicrous statement.
PayPal also kicked off congressional candidate Laura Loomer in 2019 without providing a reason.
And in May 2021, Paypal permanently banned the account of Canadian news network Rebel News without explanation.
Paypal even suspended the account of Code of Vets, a charity group for struggling veterans.
As we’ve reported, the ADL’s goal isn’t to combat “hate,” but to control the flow of online information through censorship.
Sacha Baron Cohen said as much during an ADL summit in 2019, calling for Big Tech and the ADL to do more to silence “conspiracy theorists” like Alex Jones.
“There is such a thing as objective truth. Facts do exist,” Cohen said. “And if these internet companies really want to make a difference, they should hire enough monitors to actually monitor, work closely with groups like the ADL, insist on facts and purge these lies and conspiracies from their platforms.”
It’s not difficult to see how this initiative is part of a slippery slope toward tyranny akin to Communist China’s social credit score.
