Pentagon Launches New Program to Fight “Viral” Internet Content

DARPA declares war on memes.

Published

on

The Pentagon has declared war on memes as DARPA launches a new program to fight “polarizing viral content” before it spreads.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is seeking to create software with the capability to “automatically detect, attribute, and characterize falsified multi-modal media to defend against large-scale, automated disinformation attacks.”

The software will scan news stories, photos and videos to identify “polarizing viral content” and stop its spread to eliminate “malicious intent” entirely.

Titled Semantic Forensics, the program will run content through a myriad of algorithms to identify inconsistencies and identify a story or a meme as inauthentic or fake. The system will also pinpoint the origin of the meme, the intent behind it and predict the impact of its spread.

Given that the program doesn’t take into account the fact that so-called “trusted sources” in the mainstream media have been responsible for some of the biggest fake news stories in modern history, such as Trump-Russia election collusion, the software will only succeed in eliminating dissident narratives.

As Helen Buyniski warns, the true intent of the program “seems to be to stamp out dissent.”

“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,” she 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.”

A study undertaken by researchers at University College London found that the most effective memes in the run up to the 2016 presidential election largely originated in two places – the subreddit r/the_donald – a forum devoted to boosting President Donald Trump, and 4chan’s politically incorrect /pol forum.

A VICE write-up of the study acknowledges that the most “effectively spread” memes originated on r/the_donald and /pol.

Last year, Facebook also announced it is developing a new AI algorithm that can detect and ban “offensive” memes.

YouTube BANS ‘The Vietnamese Alex Jones’ After Obsessive John Oliver Complained

The “comedian” is obsessed with getting people he doesn’t agree with censored

YouTube has banned a radio host after English “Comedian” John Oliver described him as ‘the Vietnamese Alex Jones’.

Oliver complained on his HBO show that “While Alex Jones has been removed from YouTube for spreading misinformation,” Nguy Vu, the host of King Radio, “is still going strong on the platform despite the fact you just heard him say ‘masks are killing people,’ which clearly violates YouTube’s ban on claims that wearing a mask is dangerous.”

Oliver further whined that “Alex Jones could find his way back on to Youchube (sic) if he could just complete a Rosetta Stone course in Vietnamese.”

Oliver also described YouTube and Facebook as “screamingly screamingly bad” but added that “at least in theory they can be monitored.”

Watch:

Oliver is obsessed with getting people he doesn’t agree with censored, silenced and kicked off big tech platforms, and pitches for it in almost every “comedy” show he does.

Oliver is also obsessed with Alex Jones, even though Jones is already banned from practically every mainstream platform.

Meanwhile, he is free to spread his own ‘misinformation’ every night of the week.

    TV Director Slammed For Comparing Treatment of Trans People To The HOLOCAUST

    “Trans people are in the middle of a Holocaust”

    A TV director who compared the attitude toward transgender people to the treatment of Jewish people during the Nazi holocaust has been roundly criticised for the comments.

    The comparison was made by Joey Soloway during a protest at Netflix headquarters over Dave Chapelle’s special The Closer in which he comments on biological gender.

    Soloway, who identifies as ‘nonbinary’, said that “Trans people are in the middle of a Holocaust,” further claiming they are being subjected to “apartheid, murder, a state of emergency, human rights crisis.”

    “The line is simple: stop making things worse,” Soloway said, demanding that Netflix appoint a trans person to its board “this f****** week.”

    The comments quickly sparked a backlash:

    And then there is this…

    Chapelle himself said at a recent performance that “If this is what being canceled is like, I love it,” adding “F*** Twitter. This is real life.”

    Meanwhile, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos has indicated that he has “some regrets” about the Chapelle special, particularly that he “screwed up” communicating with Netflix staff who expressed outrage about it. Sarandos clarified, however, that the special will not be removed, saying that “While some employees disagree, we have a strong belief that content on screen doesn’t directly translate to real-world harm.”
