DEFEAT DISINFO: Democrat Initiative Formed To COMBAT Digital Patriots

Initiative seeks to challenge Trump’s online megaphone

A new Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is planning to deploy technology originally developed to counter Islamic State propaganda in service of a domestic political goal – to combat online efforts to promote President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

The group, Defeat Disinfo, will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president’s claims on social media. It will seek to intervene by identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across the country – in some cases paying users with large followings to take sides against the president.

The initiative reflects fears within the Democratic Party that Trump’s unwavering digital army may help sustain him through the pandemic, as it has through past controversies, even as the economy craters, tens of thousands have died, and Trump suffers in the polls.

The initiative is run by Curtis Hougland, whose received initial funding for the technology from DARPA, the Pentagon’s research arm, as part of an effort to combat extremism overseas. He insists Democrats are ill-prepared for the looming battle over information and attention, which is bound to play an outsize role in November.

His ambivalence is shared by large parts of the Democratic Party, which recoiled at an effort, brought to light at the end of 2018, to use Russian-inspired tactics, including the creation of fake accounts, to sway the 2017 Senate election in Alabama.

According to a terrifying report by the Washington Post, the assault on free speech will be spearheaded by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal through a political action committee with the Orwellian moniker of Defeat Disinfo.

For conservatives who thought that Google, Facebook and Twitter were bad with purges and banning, you haven’t seen anything yet because this report shows how serious that these people are to eradicate opposing viewpoints.–trump-supporters-online-using-anti-terrorist-technology/
