Moonshot is one of many new front groups that echoes the ADL’s disinformation narratives that “white supremacists are the greatest terror threat” in order to criminalize speech they deem “hate” and delegitimize Western people’s right to exercise self-determination in their own countries.
Moonshot gets funding from Google, Facebook, Twitter, George Soros’ Open Society Foundation and more.
From Fox News, “Pentagon contractor investigating ‘extremism’ says BLM web search raises concerns about White supremacy”:
The Pentagon is reportedly working with an extremism analysis company that considers the web search “the truth about Black Lives Matter” and others to be signs of interest in or engagement with White supremacism.
According to Defense One, the contractor Moonshot CVE, which has ties to the Obama Foundation, is working on data that would identify which military bases and branches have the most troops searching for domestic extremist content. While that particular project’s contours are unclear, the company previously released a June report, in conjunction with the left-leaning Anti-Defamation League, on purported “White supremacy trends in the United States.” [Note: the ADL are far-right ethno-nationalist extremists when it comes to Israel.]
In it, the U.K.-based company said it “monitored a list of almost 1,600 indicators of interest in or engagement with White supremacism, focused specifically on anti-Black and anti-Semitic narratives being used by extremist groups.”
As examples, it listed the search phrases “George Floyd deserved to die,” “Jews will not replace us” and “the truth about black lives matter.”
For “the truth about black lives matter,” the group said: “This search suggests that the BLM movement has nefarious motives, and is a disinformation narrative perpetuated by White supremacist groups to weaponize anti-BLM sentiment.”
It adds: “While the search phrase appears innocuous, several books include it in their title and allege that the BLM movement is ‘joined with Antifa burning and looting.’ These sources echo White supremacist disinformation narratives alleging that BLM protesters are trying to ‘overthrow the republic’ and ‘harm American citizens in a Marxist coup,’ as a means of delegitimizing it. Multiple videos on YouTube also promote these narratives – in particular the criminalization of BLM – using the identical phrase.”
They partnered with the ADL a while back to censor the internet under the guise of fighting “hate.”
