Does The Internet Enable Hate Crimes and Mass Murder?

 Trolls and hate. The Internet was conceptualized as an open system across which to share ideas and scientific concepts. Unfortunately none of the founders, having grown up largely in the shielded world of academia had any concept of the nefarious uses to which the tool could be put by hate groups, criminals, and the mentally and socially imbalanced.

The Internet, besides enabling new types of crime, international crime, and deviant pornography such as kiddie porn has also enabled hate mongers through the anonymous nature of the system to spew their vile hatred and to recruit weak minded children like Dylaan Root, who got much of his racial animosity for the Council of Conservative Citizens Web site(s).

The killer in the recent Oregon Colleges mass shooting has been tied to antisocial hubs (4Chan), as well as white supremacist and chrisitian Identity hate groups on the conservative Web.

So it isn’t just the “white Sale” on guns driving the carnage – it is the commercial sale of, and manufacture of hate and disenfranchisement for political and power purposes.

We can stop this, but to do so requires a large group of people to first take down the entry point to the Hate Groups. That typically is the fact free and often racist world of conservative white identity politics. It includes going at sites like The National Review which publishes articles of racial hate mongering by such folks as Heather McDonald, and Michelle Malkin. Both of whom frequently are published or have contracts with VDare, a white supremacist site which uses conservative racist authors as a entre’ into the harcore racism of their staff. The American Spectator, the International Business Daily, the NRO, the Federalist, Townhall, and the Wall Street Journal all serve as entries into the world of hardore racism through the introduction to racist “theology”. Many of the sites actively ban liberal, or non-racist posters through cutting them off from posting to assure no level of sanity, or truth interferes with their incited hate fests. Indeed, many conservative sites run like rats when someone shines the light.

Got to hit them in their rat holes. If we can force the entry points to see the light – then it takes away the respectability of the supremacist sites and their ability to recruit little tow headed trolls and murders like Root.

De-legitimize hate.

Lone Wolves in the Age of the Internet: Do Hate Crimes Happen More Because of Broadband Internet Access?

In an ideal world, the Internet would be a place of inclusivity and democracy. Instead, it’s just the opposite.

A new research study led by Jason Chan, Ph.D., shows a positive relationship between broadband Internet access and incidence of hate crimes. Specifically,race-driven hate crimes committed by individuals, rather than those committed in groups, increased.

Chan, an Assistant Professor of Information and Decision Science for the Carson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, discovered the correlation using official FBI data on hate crime incidents, compared to that of broadband provider access taken from FCC documents. Between 2001 and 2008, access to just one broadband ISP showed a 20 percent rise in hate crimes, particularly in areas of high racial tension.

“We see this from two different perspectives,” Chan tells The Daily Beast, “the consumers of hate content, and the producers of it. Hate content refers to internet posts that bring about skewed ideologies and advocating for a supremacy of one race over other races.”

The first perspective has to do with selective exposure, wherein readers intentionally seek out information that galvanizes their fringe beliefs.

“When readers go online,” Chan says, “there is a specialization of interest. This magnifies or amplifies the messages posted on it. This is contrary to what we believe. We believe, instead of making things more narrow, the Internet should make things more inclusive and democratic. However, people tend to search out things relevant to existing interests, which amplifies such narrow thoughts.”

Chan says developing online recruitment techniques for hate peddlers contributes to this rise as well.

“Content providers,” Chan says, “have changed the way in which they have to execute their propaganda. They use a strategy known as leaderless resistance. Whenever they put up propaganda to have content to provide the motivation, encouragement, and justification to people on the edge. It gives them reason why they should be outside normal thought.”

After yet another mass shooting, this one leaving 10 people dead at Umpqua Community College last Thursday, digital traces of the lone gunman in the attack are again left to the examination of law enforcement officials and reporters. Just hours after the shooter, Chris Harper Mercer, was killed in a standoff with police, several online accounts tracing back to Mercer expressed hate for organized religion. What’s worse, one witness said Mercer forced his victims to state their beliefs before heartlessly killing them, specifically targeting Christians.

It’s a pattern becoming tragically more common: a mass shooting takes place, and we later discover how blatantly the perpetrators expressed hate for their victims online. In this case, clear connections emerge between recent shootings: Mercer referred, in one post, to Vester Flanagan, the man who killed two people on live television in Virginia in August. Flanagan himself made specific reference to Dylann Roof, the white supremacist who gunned down nine inside a Charleston, North Carolina church in June.

“In Dylann’s case,” Chan says, “he happened to chance upon one of these hate sites. And slowly but surely he was convinced. Through half truths and misrepresented facts, he believed individuals of his race should be doing something to serve justice back to the people. In some cases this hate content provides instructions. This type of grooming process takes time. But people see more, there are more opticals, one event tips them over and they commit the crime.”

The paper, titled “The Internet and Racial Hate Crime: Offline Spillovers from Online Access,” published in the forthcoming issue of MIS Quarterly, also offers solutions to combat this online surge. The paper suggests that, instead of engaging in a technological race with producers of hate content, policy should be implemented to educate youth on digital media, racial and social justice, stereotypical messages, and how to interpret multiple meanings.

Another plan of attack would increase the amount of anti- hate content on the net. But even an attempt to right the skewed beliefs presented across the web would be somewhat futile.

Between 2001 and 2008, access to just one broadband ISP showed a 20 percent rise in hate crimes, particularly in areas of high racial tension.

“The chance of such content being seen by the one who needs to see it are small,” says Chan. “And technological advances are moving so quickly we believe there could be newer assets in searching for digital traces of those who are likely, or at risk, of committing crimes. Such lone wolfs, before they do something, we can see some patterns.”

Unfortunately, Chan says, problems of free speech get wrapped up in who posts what online.

“This can reach a certain threshold. We’d need to tell apart those who intend to commit hate crimes and those who have those ideologies but stay within the law.”

Faux News Lies About Police Shootings

Unable to get the two Police Chiefs in this video to lie about the deaths of Police Officers, Faux News resorts to incendiary racist lies on the chryons on the screen…

Fox News Hypes Imaginary Boost In Violence Against Police

Fox News dedicated an entire segment Sunday to what host Chris Wallace described as a recent increase in violence against police. Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn joined to blame the supposed uptick on “self-styled activist” voices and a “relentless propaganda war” against police from “our network television stations.” 

A series of high-profile shootings of unarmed black men by police officers over the past year have highlighted racial tensions and disparities in policing. But there is no recent upward trend in the killing of police officers, according to data collected by the Officer Down Memorial Page, which tracks police deaths. 

In 2011, the number of police deaths in line of duty caused by gunfire or stabbing totaled 70. That number dropped to 53 in 2012 and 33 in 2013, before rising to 47 in 2014. Thus far in 2015, 24 officers have been killed by gunfire or stabbing, on pace for a lower number than in 2014.

Overall homicide rates have, however, increased this year in a host of major cities, according to The New York Times. Flynn blamed that rise in killings on lax gun laws, saying that too many convicted criminals have access to firearms.

A number of us have suffered from recently weakened gun laws that have made it much easier for our criminals to gain access to firearms,” Flynn said. “When the major cities met a few weeks ago, all of us noticed the phenomenon — a lot more rounds are being fired at each shooting and overwhelmingly being driven by people with criminal records shooting people with criminal records. That’s driving our homicide rates.”

Put simply – there is no war against the Police – by BlackLivesMatter, or any other responsible group. There is however a problem with our gun laws, promoted by the very same folks now trying to make up lies about Police shootings.

Uncle Ruckus Does a Meltdown on Faux News

Michael Whaley, whose tirade against BlackLiveMatter on Youtube, and mentioned in my post “Uncle Ruckus Syndrome” earned himself a interview on the racist trolling Faux News…

As discussed by several folks in my comment section – there were some questions as to whether the boy in the YouTube indeed had a full set of marbles. Faux News, willing to give an audience to any Uncle Tom willing to go on camera criticizing the Black Community, BlackLIvesMatter, or any other thing racial snapped up Whaley…

To their regret.

“We need to teach kids to overcome diversity!”: Megyn Kelly gets more than she bargained for when #AllLivesMatter advocate goes off the rails

On “The Kelly File” Tuesday night, host Megyn Kelly spoke to Michael Whaley, an African-American Marine whose anti-#BlackLivesMatter video went viral over the weekend.

In the video, Whaley accused the movement of “encouraging black people to kill white people” — encouragement to which he attributed the murder of Officer Darren Goforth in Houston last Friday. That wasn’t the only Fox News talking point/marching order Whaley indulged in, as he also claimed that “black people can’t accept the truth about themselves,” and need to focus on the fact that “all lives matter.”

Given that Whaley’s video essentially repeated everything that Fox News’ white hosts and guests have been arguing for weeks now, it’s not surprising that Kelly’s producers booked him for an appearance. After all, there’s just something different about him that could lend their arguments the appearance of greater credibility. But back to the interview with Kelly, in which Whaley briefly recapitulated his/their argument before noting that the black community is even more complicit in its own destruction than Kelly assumed.

“What about the ‘no snitch rule’?” Kelly asked. “This was the first I’ve heard about that, for why black people in the inner cities don’t speak up more about black-on-black crime.”

Whaley expressed disbelief, saying “the ‘no snitch rule,’ you know, you’ve probably heard of it before, so I don’t understand why you say it’s your first time hearing about it. There’s been a ‘no snitch rule for a long time.”

“But in this context, it was new,” Kelly clarified, wholly unconvincingly. Even if she had heard of the rule, the fact that she hadn’t thought about the context of the black community enough to consider its implications in this context speaks volumes about the depth of her concern with the plight of black communities in the inner city.

Her inability to make this simple, obvious connection seemed to unnerve him, so after explaining the rule to Kelly, Whaley went on a bizarre rant that began by noting that Jesus’ people had him crucified, but he loved them anyway, and ended by him asserting that “black people and white people aren’t enemies, there’s somebody else behind closed doors, that’s actually pulling the strings, that’s actually causing racism in America.” He didn’t specify who this someone or someones is, but from the look on Kelly’s face, she was clearly afraid he was going to name names. Instead, Whaley veered off in yet another direction.

“It starts with education,” he argued, “we need to teach our kids to overcome diversity, to accept criticism of our races. The #BlackLivesMatter movement is encouraging black people to throw away their lives for something most white people of this generation weren’t a part of, and can’t control. That’s history, let’s not look at the negative things in history. History tends to repeat itself.”

At this point, an uncomfortable Kelly had tried to cut him off three or four times, and finally did so successfully, saying “I hear you, I hear you. We appreciate you coming on, telling us your perspective.”

Faux News Bimbo vs the Hasbro Hamster

The controversy! See the similarity?

Other than one has a head filled with plastic nuts, and the other with fecal material…I don’t really see any.

Fox News’ Harris Faulkner sues Hasbro for $5 million over alleged theft of persona and likeness

Deadline Hollywood’s Dominic Patten reports that Fox News contributor and “Outnumbered” co-host Harris Faulkner is suing Hasbro for $5 million for stealing her name and likeness and using them in a “demeaning and insulting” fashion on an adorable hamster in its Littlest Pet Shop line of toys.

Faulkner’s lawyers alerted the toy manufacturer to the problem in January, but the toy remained available on shelves and online well into the summer. (It appears to have been pulled from online retailers as of this writing.) In her 15-page filing, Faulkner’s lawyers contended that “Hasbro’s manufacture, sale, and distribution of the Harris Faulkner Hamster Doll is extremely concerning and distressing to Faulkner.”

“In addition to its prominent and unauthorized use of Faulkner’s name, elements of the Harris Faulkner Hamster Doll also bear a physical resemblance to Faulkner’s traditional professional appearance, in particular tone of its complexion, the shape of its eyes, and the design of its eye makeup,” the filing continued. As to the legitimacy of that claim, it’s worth noting that both Harris Faulkners do in fact have complexions, eyes, and are apparently wearing makeup.

Moreover, Faulkner’s lawyers argued that “Hasbro’s capitalization on Faulkner’s name, likeness, identity, and persona is underscored with the display of the ‘TM’ symbol after her name and a statement on the back of the packaging that this symbol ‘denote[s] U.S. Trademark’ that — falsely — claims that Hasbro owns a United States trademark in ‘Harris Faulkner.’”

Most importantly, Faulkner’s filing revealed that the Fox News personality doesn’t want her brand associated with choking hazards — ironic, given the response many eating lunch while watching “Outnumbered” have had. In short, “[t]his means that Hasbro misappropriated Faulkner’s name, likeness, identity, [and] persona without consent, for its own profit, for the purpose of capitalizing off of her good name and persona, all at Faulkner’s expense.”

Because when you’re shopping for the perfect toy for that hard-to-please child, “Does it bear a resemblance to a daytime Fox News co-host?” is the first question that pops into your head.

There might be one thing…Hasbro probably should have called the toy a rat instead of a Hamster…
