It was government pressure…to create whole new categories of things to censor and then arming them with the artificial intelligence to then automatically scan and ban the new thought violations.” In this comprehensive two-part interview, he breaks down the major players in today’s censorship regime and how tactics once used abroad were deployed to target Americans and so-called election “delegitimization” or COVID “misinformation” online. “Graphika was immediately working with NATO's essentially psychological warfare branch—the the Hybrid Center of Excellence—in January 2020…They had this sophisticated typography of what right-wing media was saying, what left wing media was saying, what was being shared, the nodes and links between nodes of all the different narrative discourses on social media.”Benz is the executive director of the Foundation for Freedom Online and a former State Department diplomat under the Trump administration. “They will have a revolving door at the professional level. That is, people who are in government roles, for example, in Misinformation, Disinformation, and Malinformation at DHS will get their next jobs at the German Marshall Fund or the Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab…It is a career path. It is a path to power,” Benz says. 💛 Support us to fight for the truth👉https://donorbox.org/american-thought-leaders🔵SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL TODAY: 🔔 https://www.youtube.com/c/AmericanThoughtLeadersFind out where you can watch us on cable TV: https://www.ntd.com/tv-providers.html#MikeBenz #Censorship #TwitterFiles - - -LATEST EXCLUSIVE EPISODES:Chaya Raichik, ‘Libs of TikTok’ Creator, on Classroom Indoctrination and TikTok ‘Narcissists’https://ept.ms/Y0131ChayaRaichikOrlando Gutierrez-Boronat: Cuba’s Pawns, Informants, and Financiers, from China to Americahttps://ept.ms/Y0128Gutierrez-BoronatAlvin Lui: How Schools Are Weaponizing ‘Inclusion,’ Empathy, and ’Social Emotional Learning’ to Indoctrinate Childrenhttps://ept.ms/Y0126AlvinLuiJosh Stirling: Dissecting Excess Death Data and How Insurance Industry’s Trillions Could Be Deployed to Help the Vaccine-Injuredhttps://ept.ms/Y0124JoshStirlingBrianne Dressen: Gaslit by Doctors and Loved Ones, Some Vaccine-Injured Are Making the Ultimate Choice to End Their Sufferinghttps://ept.ms/Y0119BrianneDressen- - -PART 1: Mike Benz: The West’s Burgeoning Censorship Industry and the Government Funds Pouring In—From the DHS to DARPA to the National Science Foundation - - -Credits:shutterstock Images: https://shutr.bz/2u8Zdp8Music: Audioblocks.com, epidemicsound.comStock Video: Videoblocks.com-------------------------------------------------© All Rights Reserved.
