The Koch Brothers are teaming up with tech companies, universities and other fellow billionaires to combat online extremism.
On July 17, the After Charlottesville Project will host its second summit in San Francisco, California. Founded in the aftermath of the deadly 2017 white supremacist attacks in Virginia, the conference brings together political and business leaders to discuss solutions for curbing political terrorism. While last year’s gathering in Missouri involved grassroots and city response initiatives, the focus of this year’s summit will involve the “private tech sector” and “best practices on the fight against hate and extremism online,” according to the event’s press release.

Representatives for the Charles Koch Institute and the Anti-Defamation League will join executives from tech companies which currently include Eventbrite, Mozilla, Pinterest, Patreon and Airbnb.

“Now more than ever is the time to create communities that value diversity, inclusivity and positive change,” Michael Signer, the former mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia and the founder and chair of the Communities Overcoming Extremism Project, said in a statement. “We’re excited to assemble with these forward-thinking tech leaders to explore what positive outcomes we can gain from an event full of powerful conversations.”

This past year, tech companies have cracked down on online extremism, often with mixed success. Last week, Vox reporter Carlos Maza accused Google’s YouTube of enabling harassment on its platform by allowing conservative media star Steven Crowder to insult him as a “lispy queer” to his 3.8 million followers. The campaign resulted in YouTube deciding to demonetize Crowder’s YouTube videos, though many progressive activists believed the company should have removed his page altogether.

The After Charlottesville Project is sponsored by Comcast NBCUniversal, the Kresge Foundation and the Soros Fund Charitable Foundation.
“Now more than ever is the time to create communities that value diversity, inclusivity and positive change,” Michael Signer, the former mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia and the founder and chair of the Communities Overcoming Extremism Project, said in a statement. “We’re excited to assemble with these forward-thinking tech leaders to explore what positive outcomes we can gain from an event full of powerful conversations.”

Ok, so we have a confirmed gaggle of faggoteers working together to further neuter the internet. This actually is pretty scary because of the weight these bitches all have combined. Not sure what to expect next, but it wont be anything good.

Does it have to be so cold?

Not surprising at all. Giant megacorps, (owned by billionaires so greedy they'll kick orphans for their donation tins,) aligning themselves with useful idiots and authoritarian leftists to censor information online.

You know, a well placed thermonuclear device along the fault lines in California could easily solve this issue. And a lot of other issues in American society.

I'm going full tinfoil hat on this one and i don't know how popular this opinion is gonna be. Have you noticed how they use the word "extremism" instead of just Nazis, altright and all that shit? The answer is very simple: they are going for absolutely everyone. Not only conservatives, libertarians or populists, but also leftists. Antifa larpers and other far leftists are probably gonna be affected by this shit, specially with Koch on board. Is very likely that they are not gonna touch popular people that can shill identity politics (Contrapoints, maybe Linsday or Harry) but they're gonna fuck on the ass a lot of smaller leftists that make anti-capitalist content that are not friendly for their corporate symbiosis between capitalism and intersectionality. We're probably on the prelude of an all out offensive of corporations on anti-hegemonic political content online, no matter the ideology. Koch and Soros move a lot of strings and the Internet ain't gonna be a nice place for ideas anymore

Airbnb probably wants to install a killswitch on reservations if they think a wrongthink event is scheduled in your town. Eventbrite looks like a Ticketmaster knockoff, I bet they will be happy to deplatform any event they don't like.
