Military officials said they are looking into what appeared to be white supremacist hand signs made by students before the Army-Navy football game on Saturday.
Pregame festivities aired by ESPN showed cadets on both sides of the rivalry — two West Point cadets and one Naval Academy midshipman — making gestures as a camera focused on a sideline report from journalist Rece Davis.
The Wall Street Journal revealed that CAIR lobbied social media giant Twitter to blacklist outspoken conservative activist Laura Loomer from the platform over her remarks about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
In a recent article titled “Facebook, Twitter Solicit Outside Groups, Often on the Right, to Referee Political Speech,” the Wall Street Journal notes that social media firms such as Facebook and Twitter consult with outside groups in order to develop their policies surrounding political speech on their platforms. Although it appears the Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe have begun reaching out to some conservative groups for at least some semblance of ideological balance, the articles most illuminating revelation is about Twitter’s blacklisting of Laura Loomer.
The Journal Reports:
Conservative Jewish activist Laura Loomer says she didn’t know until recently that outside groups and individuals had privately lobbied Twitter executives to remove her from the site in late November.
In an email to Ms. Loomer, Twitter said she had violated its hateful conduct policy for a tweet calling Ilhan Omar, the Muslim congresswoman from Minnesota, anti-Jewish and supportive of Shariah law. In an interview, Ms. Loomer says she was referring to a 2012 tweet from Ms. Omar in which the congresswoman wrote, “may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Among the groups that had complained to Twitter was the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an advocacy organization.
So these military members have good reason to be nervous because CAIR is planning to throw their weight into destroying these men’s lives unless someone has the balls to stand up to them. No one in the government or MSM has shown the willingness to do this yet.
