New Weapons to Fight "Online Extremists" Rolled Out by DARPA - Guess Who They Will Target?


Benjamin Franklin once said: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

There are many constitutional conservatives, present company included, who would agree with that statement. With that said, in the current environment, I can’t help but wonder how much “temporary safety” is even available these days. In just about every facet of life, Americans are giving up their essential liberties left and right expecting to get some temporary safety, only to end up being spied on by the party they’re expecting to keep them safe…

In the video below, Gary Franchi discusses new weapons being rolled out by DARPA to fight “online extremism” and “fake news.” Officials are saying, “If the online world is part of the ‘battlefield,’ a new Pentagon program is building tools to evaluate how the battle is going. The program will target problems ranging from “phony news,” to “terrorist propaganda.” That’s a rather interesting mix of alleged “threats” wouldn’t you say? Recall that a Department of Defense training manual was obtained by Judicial Watch via a Freedom of Information Act request, and that manual defined a “domestic extremist” as follows:

  1. Americans who are ‘reverent of individual liberty,’ and ‘suspicious of centralized federal authority’ are possible ‘extreme right-wing’ terrorists.
  2. The document linked above also lists people who embrace “individual liberties” and honor “states’ rights,” among other characteristics, as potential “extremists” who are likely to be members of “hate groups.”
  3. Finally, the document goes on to call the Founding Fathers, “extremists.”

By Obama’s standards George Washington would be hauled off by DHS, and anything relating to the Constitution, right to life, Christianity, or the Second Amendment is “phony” in the eyes of liberals… so how much safety do people think they’re getting here? History will not be kind to this generation of fools who gave away the shining city on a hill for nothing but a bunch of lies…
