Nightmare Scenario? Experts Suggest Contacting Employers for Offensive Posts: Report

Cybersecurity experts have urged corporations to create a program that allows people to rat out everyday citizens to their employers for what they consider offensive behavior online. Cancel Culture and Big Tech are a match made in hell, as cybersecurity experts call to target the livelihood of internet users who get too edgy online. “The initiative, called Respect in Security, was launched on Tuesday by two cybersecurity experts. According to the founders, several companies have already signed up,” Reclaim The Net reported. “For a lot of people, it’s a no man’s land,” founder Lisa Forte and Red Goat Cyber Security employee told the BBC. “It can feel like the platforms do nothing, the police don’t do a lot, lawyers are expensive and the publicity legal action generates can be negative.” The BBC reported that co-founder and Trend Micro Vice President Rik Ferguson said “many companies had anti-bullying policies but they tended to focus on internal behaviour.” In what may be a reference to his Respect in Security program, he wrote a few weeks ago: “Inside my ‘Projects’ email folder resides a subfolder called ‘Kill Trolls’ and it is now only a couple of weeks away from becoming a real thing (sadly not with that name).” Free speech advocates concerned about Ferguson and Forte’s work may have good reason to be. Forte explained her clear fix for people saying offensive statements via the internet: “The best solution we have, if the culprit is identifiable, is to approach their employer.” The official Respect in Security website included a Corporate Pledge listing a series of principles such as: “We will work to eliminate harassment, to include all employees, partners, customers, and interactions. Any form of harassment, even when not unlawful or directed at a protected category, will not be tolerated. “We will not tolerate, condone, or ignore any form of harassment no matter where it occurs, or the personnel involved. “We will ensure that staff members are not asked to operate in unsafe organisational or social environments.” Ferguson’s politics are openly left wing. He tweeted in early July that “I left the UK because of #Brexit. He has also compared former President Donald Trump and Republicans to fascists, and said that terms like “Blacklist” or “Black Market” imply our culture is racist. Trusting somebody like that to judge what is or isn’t offensive behavior may be a bad call.  Curiously for someone so against harassment, he posted an image of what appears to be a private residence, saying: “FBI Dir. James Comey's house today sports a Trump sign.”  What makes Respect in Security different is that it is concerned with behavior of employees between companies. In a hyperbolic age of Cancel Culture, such measures could lead to employees complaining about their co-workers for voicing or having the wrong opinions. Conservatives are under attack. Contact your representative and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives. If you have been censored, contact us at the Media Research Center contact form, and help us hold Big Tech accountable.

California to Require Proof of Covid Vaccine or Weekly Testing For all State Workers and Health Care Employees

California Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday announced the state will require proof of Covid-19 vaccination or weekly testing for all state workers and some health care employees, the Associated Press reported.

State workers will have to provide proof of vaccination or must test weekly by August 2nd.

Health care workers will have until August 23rd to provide proof of vaccination or proof of negative Covid tests two times a week.

Health care workers who refuse the vaccine will also be required to wear a mask.

Newsom said unvaccinated people are responsible for new Covid cases and deaths.

“We’re at a point in this epidemic this pandemic where choice, individuals’ choice not to get vaccinated, is now impacting the rest of us in profound and devastating and deadly way,” Embattled Governor Gavin Newsom said in announcing the new order. “That choice has led to an increase in case rates, growing concern around increasing death rates and self evidently brought hospitalization rates.”

Schumer added, “He’s a racist and he always appeals to the dark side of human nature, which he’s very good at, unfortunately. How did they vote for him?” Schumer said.

Schumer didn’t get the memo. We’re also “deplorable” according to Hillary Clinton.

PolitiFact Tags It FALSE That Biden & Harris 'Distrusted COVID-19 Vaccines' in 2020

PolitiFact’s aggressive defense of Biden and Harris popped up again on Friday. They tagged it as “False” for a Tik-Tok video that “Says Joe Biden and Kamala Harris distrusted COVID-19 vaccines.” The quotes in the video are all accurate, but they caused Facebook to flag the video as “Missing Context.” As in – the editing is too negative for their liking. Once again, they’re not “fact checking” – they’re context checking. The short summary in Tom Kertscher's article proclaimed “Video clips appear to show Joe Biden and Kamala Harris raising doubts about COVID-19 vaccines, but they were raising concerns about the rollout by then-President Donald Trump, not the vaccines themselves.” [Emphasis mine.] THAT is not accurate. If you suggest someone shouldn’t trust the vaccine until something happens – in this case, until the Democrats are elected – you’re sowing distrust in the vaccines. They bolded the part the "False" video includes. Many remember Kamala Harris in the vice-presidential debate:  "If the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci, if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it. Absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I’m not taking it." A Biden critic might giggle that PolitiFact thought it was more contextual for Biden to champion vaccines "free of politics," which certainly didn't represent their don't-trust-them campaign. In a September 27, 2020 video call with the AFL-CIO, Biden said:  "Charting a clear path of science-based vaccines, free from politics. I get asked the question: ‘If the president announced tomorrow we have a vaccine, would you take it?’ Only if it was completely transparent, that other experts in the country could look at it, only if we knew all of what went into it. Because so far, nothing he’s told us has been true." You can see the videos aren't wildly out of context. They might lack the Trump critique. In a video for a black and Hispanic journalists convention on July 6, 2020, Biden said: 'People don’t believe that he’s telling the truth, therefore they’re not at all certain they’re going to take the vaccine. And one more thing: If and when the vaccine comes, it’s not likely to go through all the tests that need to be done, and the trials that are needed to be done." Biden was casting doubt on any vaccine that could be ready before the election, which isn't "free from politics" He said in a September 2, 2020 TV interview:  "Enormous pressure put on the CDC not to put out the detailed guidelines. The enormous pressure being put on the FDA to say they’re going, that the following protocol will in fact reduce, it will have a giant impact on COVID. All these things turn out not to be true, and when a president continues to mislead and lie, when we finally do, God willing, get a vaccine, who’s going to take the shot? Who’s going to take the shot? You going to be the first one to say, ‘Put me — sign me up, they now say it’s OK’? I’m not being facetious." But Kertscher concluded:  The video was selectively edited to leave out the context of their statements. Their full statements show they were raising doubts about Trump’s trustworthiness, his ability to roll out the vaccines safely and the risk of political influence over vaccine development.  We rate the video False. This is part of the same pattern we found in a study of PolitiFact after the first 100 days: Biden was fact-checked 13 times, but attacks on Biden were fact-checked 106 times.

Turned Off, Tuned Out: Olympic Television Viewership Abysmal

Friday’s opening ceremonies for the Tokyo Olympics provided more painful truth for Big Sports. The U.S. television audience for the event was the lowest it’s been in the 21st century, further indicating how badly Americans are rejecting woke sports. Coming on the heels of the shrunken TV audiences for the NBA Finals and Major League Baseball All-Star Game, the Olympic opening ceremonies drew just 16.7 million viewers. NBCUniversal reports this is the worst audience for the event in 33 years, down a whopping 36 percent since the 2016 Rio Games and 59 percent from the 2012 London Games. This disaster lowered the previous low-water mark of 21.6 million viewers for the 1992 Barcelona Games. Making lemonade out of lemons, The Hill bragged that this ratings debacle was “the second-most watched standalone primetime entertainment telecast since the pandemic began in March, excluding post-Superbowl coverage.” NBC ignored the larger story by focusing on its increased streaming audience. NBC is airing 7,000 hours of Olympics coverage via multiple television networks and its streaming service. The question is: will many people be watching? None of this is surprising. A few days ago, Zeta Global uncovered some alarming numbers demonstrating just how much contempt Americans have for big-time sports right now.: “More than 60 percent of Americans were unable to express excitement or interest in the summer games, and at least 45 percent of Americans confirmed they are NOT looking forward to the games in any capacity.” As a result, Zeta Global predicted these Olympics would attract the smallest TV audiences of the century. A second research group, Ipsos, announced that 68 percent of Americans are opposed to athlete protests. Including kneeling and wearing social justice slogans. They’ve seen more of this aberrant behavior than they want to see, and Olympic athletes have already protested and demanded the right to protest without restrictions during the Tokyo Games. Additionally, Ipsos found that respondents indicated they feel proud of their country when U.S. Olympians do well. However, that's not happening now. Just 29 percent of Republicans and 39 percent of Democrats are even interested in watching these Olympics.  Which brings us to the USA’s NBA basketball mess. Team super woke USA suffered an embarrassing loss to heavy underdog France Sunday. But, hey, at least the NBA’s Social Justice Coalition is working hard toward policing reforms (as indicated by a PSA during the recent NBA Finals. Thank goodness for that! Not. The Tokyo Olympics were delayed for a year because of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic last year. During those 12 months, social justice warriors in sports have only given fans fewer reasons to watch when the Games finally arrived this summer. For many fans, they’d seen enough outrageous behavior to determine they wouldn’t tolerate any more of the same. Last Tuesday’s kneeling by the U.S. and other national soccer teams may have just reinforced fans’ decisions for tuning out of the opening ceremonies.

But it turns out to be authentic. And there's actually much to recommend this if

This Is the End of Affirmative Action

One afternoon, during my freshman year at Alabama A&M University, my homework was piling up, and I was feeling antsy. I needed a change of scenery from Foster Hall. I'd heard that the library at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, 10 minutes away, was open three hours longer than our own. So I loaded up my backpack, ran down the stairs-the dorm's elevator was busted-and headed across town.

Big Tech Tyrants will Now Add Content to a Shared Counterterrorism “Key Database” to Crack down on “White Supremacists and Far-Right Militias”

The Big Tech tyrants will now add content to a shared counterterrorism “key database” to crack down on “white supremacists and far-right militias.”

According to Reuters, “A counterterrorism organization formed by some of the biggest U.S. tech companies including Facebook (FB.O) and Microsoft (MSFT.O) is significantly expanding the types of extremist content shared between firms in a key database, aiming to crack down on material from white supremacists and far-right militias.”

White supremacists = Christians, Trump supporters

Right-wing militias = Anyone to the right of Karl Marx who disagrees with Biden regime

We now know that Big Tech is working hand in glove with the government to censor and track conservatives so this database will be used by the Biden regime to arrest political dissidents.

Earlier this year, the Biden Justice Department admitted it was “actively considering” whether to give prosecutors new authorities to bring specific charges against “domestic terrorists.”

“One of the things we’re looking at is would we need new authorities,” Brad Wiegmann, deputy assistant attorney general for the department’s national security division, said in April.

Because the current laws on the books to bring charges for arson, violations of weapons or explosives laws isn’t enough.

The reality is the DOJ is looking to make new laws to persecute people with whom they politically disagree -with the help of Big Tech.

Meanwhile Republican leadership remains silent on Big Tech/Big Government tyranny.

POR EL BIEN DEL NEGOCIO: Univisión ABOGA por la inmigración via reconciliación

​En el noticiero del jueves, Univisión volvió a abogar por una reconciliación presupuestaria a prueba de filibusteros como el medio para legalizar a millones de inmigrantes indocumentados (ver aquí y aquí). Este último empuje se dio durante la noticia titular sobre la reunión que sostuvo la vicepresidenta Kamala Harris con activistas de inmigración para discutir DACA. Vea como la presentadora Patricia Janiot no pierde el tiempo en enmarcar el informe: "Vamos a iniciar con la reunión que mantuvo la vicepresidenta Kamala Harris en la Casa Blanca con activistas y jóvenes dreamers para enviarle un contundente mensaje al congreso que llegó la hora de legalizar a cientos de miles de soñadores": PATRICIA JANIOT, PRESENTADORA, UNIVISIÓN: Hola qué tal, les saluda Patricia Janiot. Este jueves vamos a iniciar con la reunión que mantuvo la vicepresidenta Kamala Harris en la Casa Blanca con activistas y jóvenes dreamers para enviarle un contundente mensaje al congreso que llegó la hora de legalizar a cientos de miles de soñadores. (....) JANET RODRÍGUEZ, CORRESPONSAL DE LA CASA BLANCA, UNIVISIÓN: El compromiso de Harris y el presidente Joe Biden ahora es apoyar que la legalización de millones de inmigrantes indocumentados se dé a través del proceso de reconciliación presupuestario en el congreso, la única forma viable de lograr una legalización este año.  (....) JANIOT: Y, ¿cómo va avanzando el proceso de reconciliación del presupuesto por el cual se podría lograr la legalización de estos jóvenes y de millones más? RODRÍGUEZ: Patricia, al momento el senado está redactando lo que incluiría ese presupuesto que podría incluir una vía a la legalización. Pero se… verdaderamente aún faltan muchos votos críticos para determinar si los demócratas podrán usar esta maniobra política para legalizar a miles, millones de inmigrantes indocumentados, y esto podría dilatarse, Patricia, hasta el mes de septiembre. Según informó Janiot, el mensaje apremia porque un "juez de Texas declaró DACA ilegal y prohibió las nuevas solicitudes para quienes quieran acogerse a este programa de protección migratoria". Sin embargo, en el informe no se mencionó que el programa de Consideración de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), creawdo por el gobierno de Obama, nunca ha sido legal, y a la fecha, aún no ha resuelto el problema que supuestamente resolvería; es decir, para dar a los beneficiarios la ciudadanía estadounidense. Aunque Univisión entrevistó a la activista de élite Lorella Praeli de Community Change Action (quien anteriormente sirvió con la ACLU, la campaña presidencial de Clinton de 2016 y United We Dream), fue la propia Janiot quien abogó por la "maniobra política para legalizar a miles, millones de inmigrantes indocumentados ", mientras la corresponsal de la Casa Blanca Janet Rodríguez resumía el esquema de inmigración a través de la reconciliación que forma parte del proyecto de ley de infraestructura de Biden. Janiot lanzó un último dardo para ganar puntos a favor de la medida, cuando preguntó: "Janet…Y, ¿cómo va avanzando el proceso de reconciliación del presupuesto por el cual se podría lograr la legalización de estos jóvenes y de millones más?". La respuesta de Rodríguez concedió a una (muy) posible derrota: "Verdaderamente, todavía hay muchos votos críticos para determinar si los demócratas podrán usar esta maniobra política para legalizar a miles, millones de inmigrantes indocumentados, y esto podría retrasarse, Patricia, hasta septiembre". Este informe comprueba una vez más que Univision no es otra cosa que un PAC izquierdista en defensa de la inmigración con una licencia de transmisión. ¿Quién auspicial el sesgo en los medio en español? Anunciantes como AT&T. Escríbales aquí  para dejarles saber su opinión. Oprima en "Expand" para leer el segmento complete arriba mencionado: Noticiero Univision July 23, 2021 PATRICIA JANIOT: Hola qué tal, les saluda Patricia Janiot. Este jueves vamos a iniciar con la reunión que mantuvo la vicepresidenta Kamala Harris en la Casa Blanca con activistas y jóvenes dreamers para enviarle un contundente mensaje al congreso que llegó la hora de legalizar a cientos de miles de soñadores. El mensaje ha cobrado urgencia porque un juez de Texas declaró DACA ilegal y prohibió las nuevas solicitudes para quienes quieran acogerse a este programa de protección migratoria. Janet Rodríguez está en Washington y nos dice cuál fue el desenlace de esta reunión. KAMALA HARRIS: Diana would you please share? JANET RODRIGUEZ: Diana Bautista hoy tuvo que hablar con la vicepresidenta Kamala Harris desde su casa en California. La joven solicitó el beneficio de DACA hace unos meses pero sigue indocumentada por el fallo de un juez federal en Texas que frenó las nuevas solicitudes al programa, incluyendo la suya. DIANA BAUTISTA: ...una causa de mi ansiedad, mucha gente no entiende eso y eso es algo que yo compartí con la vicepresidenta. RODRIGUEZ: Sentados a la mesa con Harris estaban beneficiarios de DACA y activistas como Lorella Praeli que llevan años luchando por una solución permanente para cientos de miles de jóvenes soñadores. LORELLA PRAELI: Me quedó a mí muy claro en esta reunión que la vicepresidenta está comprometida y nosotros como comunidad, como organizaciones de abogacía vamos a encargarnos de que no sea una promesa en vano. RODRIGUEZ: El compromiso de Harris y el presidente Joe Biden ahora es apoyar que la legalización de millones de inmigrantes indocumentados se dé a través del proceso de reconciliación presupuestario en el congreso, la única forma viable de lograr una legalización este año. HARRIS: ...so we will be tireless in fighting for a pathway to citizenship... RODRIGUEZ: Lucharemos incansablemente por esa legalización, dijo la vicepresidenta. PRAELI:  Nos… fue muy clara. Esto va a ser muy difícil porque hay muchas personas que están en nuestra contra. RODRIGUEZ: Harris invitó al grupo para llamar la atención sobre los retos que representa el fallo de la corte de Texas que deja alrededor de 80,000 nuevos solicitantes de DACA en limbo. Erika Ayala nos cuenta que en la reunión no se hicieron promesas, sólo se reafirmó el compromiso del gobierno de apoyar su causa. ERICA AYALA: Ya es tiempo de que el congreso, el vicepresident y el presidente hagan algo por nosotros. JANIOT: Janet, gracias por este informe. Y, ¿cómo va avanzando el proceso de reconciliación del presupuesto por el cual se podría lograr la legalización de estos jóvenes y de millones más? RODRIGUEZ: Patricia, al momento el senado está redactando lo que incluiría ese presupuesto que podría incluir una vía a la legalización. Pero se… La respuesta de Rodríguez, sin embargo, permitió una (muy) posible derrota: "Desafortunadamente, todavía hay muchos votos críticos para determinar si los demócratas podrán usar esta maniobra política para legalizar a miles, millones de inmigrantes indocumentados, y esto podría retrasarse, Patricia, hasta septiembre". Regreso contigo. JANIOT: La espera continúa. Gracias, Janet.  

ABC: Only 91 Seconds on Own Poll Showing Pessimism Surge Under Biden

With COVID cases, violent crime, inflation, and illegal immigration all on the rise after the first six months of Joe Biden’s presidency, it’s no surprise that pessimism about the country’s future has surged in a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released Sunday morning. However, rather than provide full coverage of this bad news for the Democrat in the White House, the liberal network only managed a paltry 91 seconds of air time divided among three broadcasts on Sunday and Monday. “Our new ABC News/Ipsos poll out this morning, it shows a significant drop in optimism about the direction of our country over the next year,” co-host Whit Johnson announced on Sunday’s Good Morning America. He noted the size of the plummet in America’s mood: “Take a look here, only 45% of those polled are optimistic, that’s down 19 points from May, when it was 64%.”     Turning to ABC News political director Rick Klein during the 48-second discussion, Johnson searched for a reason: “Rick, what are the key factors behind all of this?” Klein explained: “Crime and fears around gun violence are a piece of this, as are things like immigration, inflation and, critically, the pandemic. We saw in this poll President Biden’s approval rating on handling of COVID down nine points. That’s just since April.” Klein particularly worried about the political impact on the Democratic Party: “The country is in a much different place than it was just a few months ago and President Biden and the Democrats should see that as blaring warning signs.” Despite those “blaring warning signs,” on This Week, moderator and former Clinton White House hack George Stephanopoulos at first tried to hype the new poll as good news for Biden: “President Biden has hit the six month mark in office, holding majority support from the American people. Our brand new poll with Ipsos also shows that 52% of Americans believe that Biden is following through on his campaign promises.” The host could only manage 15 seconds on the negative finding for the President and his party: “But it also shows that most Americans are pessimistic about the year ahead, a dramatic 20-point swing from optimism in May. As the country faces an array of challenges – a resurgent coronavirus, rising crime, inflation, our politics as divided as ever.” On Monday’s GMA, Stephanopoulos again briefly brought up the polling data: “And, Rachel, we have a new poll out that shows a pretty dramatic drop in optimism among the American people over the last couple months.” White House correspondent Rachel Scott responded: Yeah, and this number is actually down 20 points since May, George. Our latest poll showing that the majority of Americans, 55%, say that they’re actually pessimistic about the direction of the country. And President Biden also seeing his lowest approval ratings for his handling of the pandemic, with just about 60% of Americans approving of his response, George. That exchange amounted to just 28 seconds. In contrast, the show later devoted two minutes and 21 seconds, or 141 seconds, to singer Jennifer Lopez getting back together with actor Ben Affleck. Not only was that five times more than the polling coverage during Monday’s broadcast, it was nearly a full minute more that the total air time the network provided to the poll over 24 hours.    Beyond trying to downplay the bad news for Biden by barely mentioning it, the tone of the very limited coverage was that the President was a victim of circumstance rather than being responsible for the problems facing the nation. The tiny amount of time devoted to Americans being pessimistic about the future under Biden was brought to ABC viewers by Google and Dell. You can fight back by letting these advertisers know what you think of them sponsoring such content. Here is a full transcript of the limited polling coverage on July 25 & 26: Good Morning America 07/25/21 8:34 AM (...) WHIT JOHNSON: I do want to turn to another topic, though. Our new ABC News/Ipsos poll out this morning, it shows a significant drop in optimism about the direction of our country over the next year. Take a look here, only 45% of those polled are optimistic, that’s down 19 points from May, when it was 64%. Rick, what are the key factors behind all of this? [ON-SCREEN HEADLINE: America Less Optimistic? ABC News /Ipsos: 45% Optimistic About the Future] RICK KLEIN: Yeah, Whit, really striking. Crime and fears around gun violence are a piece of this, as are things like immigration, inflation and, critically, the pandemic. We saw in this poll President Biden’s approval rating on handling of COVID down nine points. That’s just since April. The country is in a much different place than it was just a few months ago and President Biden and the Democrats should see that as blaring warning signs. These things are changing, and they are changing fast, in a whole lot of different directions.                                      (...)      This Week 07/25/21 9:01 AM (...) GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: As we come on the air this morning, President Biden has hit the six month mark in office, holding majority support from the American people. Our brand new poll with Ipsos also shows that 52% of Americans believe that Biden is following through on his campaign promises. But it also shows that most Americans are pessimistic about the year ahead, a dramatic 20-point swing from optimism in May.

CBS Roots for Team USA to Fail at Olympics: ‘Humble’ Arrogant Americans

According to CBS guest William Rhoden, arrogant Team USA need to be “humbled," and maybe losing several medals at the Olympics was the way to do it. Appearing on CBS This Morning, Monday, the liberal sports journalist derided the opening ceremonies as too nationalistic, saying they reminded him of “white nationalism.”  Seeming to root against the U.S., the former New York Times columnist took pleasure in the American basketball team’s struggles: “Well, I think we should be humbled. You know, I mean, this whole last year in this country —  it's about entitlement and privilege. Nobody epitomizes that more than basketball.”  He then explained how even the opening ceremonies have been ruined: “My favorite part was going for the opening ceremonies.” Rhoden offered an ugly comparison of athletes to the disgusting violence seen at the January 6 riot:      Then I realized, you know, man, particularly after the last four years, I had it wrong. Nationalism is not good. We've seen the rise of white nationalism. Nationalism is not good. And also, this whole idea -- I keep thinking back on the Capitol riots, and I saw a lot of, you know, U.S. flags.  Rhoden, who is now with The Undefeated website, was triggered by so much flag waving:  So now when I see the flag and the flag raised, what —  what, what, what America am I living in? You know, are the ones that don't think, you know, we should be here? The ones that think that we should shut things down? The ones —  so I just think that this is a very —  these Olympics should be a time of soul searching and winning sometimes is antithetic to soul searching.

Should we be surprised?  WILLIAM RHODEN (The Undefeated writer at large): Well, I think we should be humbled. You know, I mean, this whole last year in this country —  it's about entitlement and privilege. Nobody epitomizes that more than basketball. Because we're just supposed to win the gold.  GAYLE KING: We are, Bill, supposed to win the gold.  RHODEN: Well, not anymore. Not —   KING: Is it entitlement?  RHODEN: Well, it is.  We sent in the Marines in 1992. Michael Jordan and all that as a reaction to losing. Now we send in the Marines. And then I'm saying, “Okay, after the rest of the world catches up -- now who do you send?” And that’s who we are sending now. Luka Doncic just hit 48 points.  MASON: Well, the NBA MVP of the NBA finals is from Greece.  RHODEN: I just think across the board, I think we just need some humility. I know that's antithetic to what we're about here. So -- I think everybody's “Oh, it was a wake-up call.” It was more than that. This is a living nightmare. ANTHONY MASON: Do you think the U.S. Can still win gold in basketball?  RHODEN: They probably will. I was asking myself yesterday, saying probably, “Why are you saying that?” And it's because we're all used to it.  ...  GAYLE KING: Do you look at the Olympics differently now? Do you even think we should be -- it should be happening?   RHODEN: Yeah, yeah. I've got about five of them. I was telling you my favorite part was going for the opening ceremonies.  KING: I love that too.  RHODEN: I love the opening ceremonies. March of countries. Then I realized, you know, man, particularly after the last four years, I had it wrong. Nationalism is not good. We've seen the rise of white nationalism. Nationalism is not good. And also, this whole idea -- I keep thinking back on the Capitol riots, and I saw a lot of, you know, U.S. flags.  ANTHONY MASON: Right.  RHODEN: So now when I see the flag and the flag raised, what —  what, what, what America am I living in? You know, are the ones that don't think, you know, we should be here? The ones that think that we should shut things down? The ones —  so I just think that this is a very —  these Olympics should be a time of soul searching and winning sometimes is antithetic to soul searching. ... MASON:  Do you think they should have canceled the Olympics?  RHODEN: Yeah. Ideally -- of course they should have canceled the Olympics.  JERICKA DUNCAN: Wow.  RHODEN: But our highest value now is money. Everything is being driven by money. So they're telling fans, athletes, “Roll the dice, because we are going forward.”

PayPal Partnering With Anti-Defamation League to Share Info With Law Enforcement, Determine Who Can Use Their Services

PayPal is partnering with the Anti-Defamation League to determine who can use their services.

The partnership was announced on Monday, with the companies claiming that they are going to “investigate how extremist and hate movements in the United States take advantage of financial platforms to fund their criminal activities,” according to a report from Reuters.

Of course, the ADL has been known to brand anyone who supports Donald Trump or holds views to the right of Karl Marx as an “extremist.”

“The initiative will be led through ADL’s Center on Extremism, and will focus on uncovering and disrupting the financial flows supporting white supremacist and anti-government organizations,” the report continued. “It will also look at networks spreading and profiting from antisemitism, Islamophobia, racism, anti-immigrant, anti-Black, anti-Hispanic and anti-Asian bigotry.”

PayPal said that the user data collected through the initiatives will be shared with other firms in the financial industry, law enforcement and politicians.

“We’re hoping to have impact on fighting hatred and extremism, which sadly seems to be surging in society across the globe,” Aaron Karczmer, PayPal’s chief risk officer and executive vice president said in an interview with Reuters. “As the son of a Holocaust survivor I know all too well the real world impact that come from hatred and extremist groups.”

“We have a unique opportunity to further understand how hate spreads and develop key insights that will inform the efforts of the financial industry, law enforcement, and our communities in mitigating extremist threats,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL’s CEO.
