The Department of Justice is concentrating on “far-right” groups in a new study of social media usage aimed at combatting violent extremism.
The Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) awarded Michigan State University $585,719 for the study, which was praised by Eric Holder, the former attorney general, earlier this year.
“There is currently limited knowledge of the role of technology and computer mediated communications (CMCs), such as Facebook and Twitter, in the dissemination of messages that promote extremist agendas and radicalize individuals to violence,” according to the NIJ grant. “The proposed study will address this gap through a series of qualitative and quantitative analyses of posts from various forms of CMC used by members of both the far-right and Islamic extremist movements.”
The study draws more upon right-wing forums than upon the corners of the web inhabited by Islamist extremists.
“We will collect posts made in four active forums used by members of the far-right and three from the Islamic Extremist community, as well as posts made in Facebook, LiveJournal, Twitter, YouTube, and Pastebin accounts used by members of each movement,” the grant said.
I’m hoping he’ll finally buy his ticket to my show.
I wasn’t aware that being concerned about barnyard animals running around and hooting and hollering like monkeys at a monkey party and making people eat each other’s cum while not remotely seeming desirous of teasing out the crime behind that 7-series compressor was “right wing.” And I love how the attorney general, in his total incompetence and corruption, has at once deftly and clumsily equated those persons with “Islamic extremists.”
Again, it’s not a “movement” when you sigh in exasperation and give completely useless government employees a boot in the ass and escort them off the property because they’re so completely fucking useless.
No, it’s not a “movement” –well, bowel movement, maybe; getting rid of human waste like Holder.
United States is a floater that seems to circle the drain for an interminable length of time. But its ultimate fate was never really in question against that inexorable force.
Don’t fight it, Mister Attorney General. It’s one of those new high-pressure crappers with the jet-action cleansing function. There’s really nothing your turd of a nondiction can do about it. Just enjoy the ride.
