A new report by FAR LEFT watchdog groups claims that major technology platforms, Wall Street businesses, and right-wing media corporations are complicit in enabling anti-Muslim bigotry across the world.
As everyone knows, thanks to the lies and propaganda relentlessly being spewed by designated terrorist group CAIR on a daily basis, “Muslims are the biggest targets for hatred despite the fact they never do anything that causes people to hate them.”
Religion News Case in point: The latest fake news report called the paper, “Fanning the Flames,” published on Oct. 31st by the Action Center on Race and the Economy’s Crescendo Project in partnership with the Public Accountability Initiative.
“Corporations with global reach in the tech, finance, and media sectors especially have reliably resourced anti-Muslim individuals and groups both domestically and internationally and have created the infrastructure for anti-Muslim messages and bigotry to spread and thrive,” the report states. (It’s called freedom of speech, at least in America)
The report calls companies including Facebook, Amazon, Fidelity, Goldman Sachs, iHeartMedia and Sinclair Broadcast Group “the unindicted co-conspirators of the Christchurch shooter,” who massacred 51 people at two New Zealand mosques in March. (Yeah, sure they were, because American corporations are involved in a conspiracy against a little mosque in New Zealand)
“Anti-Muslim bigotry is on the rise because corporations like Google, Amazon and Fidelity have decided they are OK with anti-Muslim bigotry as long as they can make money off of it,” Saqib Bhatti, ACRE’s co-executive director, told Religion News Service.
“These corporations have this line about how they give ‘equal opportunity’ to all users. Social media platforms will say, ‘Well, everyone can share what they want,’ and donor-advised funds say they allow people to give money to any nonprofit,” Bhatti said. “But these corporations weaponize the idea of neutrality, and they hide behind it. Making money off letting white supremacists organize, fundraise, recruit and strategize is not neutral. As such, these corporations all have blood on their hands.” (Google has all but eliminated anti-Islam websites from its SEARCH results)
Researchers found that major tech platforms have not only “provided a space for unsafe actors”; their search and recommendation algorithms also enabled white supremacist and bigoted propaganda to spread further. (They why have they deplatformed so many anti-Islam accounts?)
While the Christchurch shooter’s Facebook Live stream of his massacre was removed, platforms including Twitter, Reddit and YouTube were ineffective in removing duplicates of the video. Their algorithms, which feed users similar content and experts say has become a tool to gradually radicalize users, further ensured that more and more eyes viewed the footage.(Youtube deletes most videos that are anti-Islam)
“It is concerning that these tech platforms have not created strategies to eliminate anti-Muslim bigotry from their sites,” researchers wrote, pointing to tech companies’ 2017 cooperation in creating tools to remove ISIS propaganda from their platforms as well as their success in removing copyright-infringing material and images of child sexual abuse. (The only way to remove anti-Muslim bigotry is for Muslims to start behaving like human beings instead of savages, and to stop trying to spread Islam throughout the world)
According to the report, Facebook has also refused to remove posts by lawmakers explicitly calling for the murder of Muslims, has partnered with right-wing news sites that distribute anti-Muslim content and has allowed anti-Muslim organizations to fundraise through its platform. (These organizations are spreading the truth, at least the ones that are left after Facebook purged most of them)
On Amazon, customers can readily purchase books including the notorious novel “The Turner Diaries,” which experts say has inspired over a dozen hate crimes and terrorist plots, including the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. ACRE previously published a report focused on how Amazon has profited from the sale of anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic and white supremacist products and facilitated the spread of these ideologies.
