Are ISIS Threats Against Twitter Bait for the Police State?

21st Century Wire says…

Now, after all the social media platform has done for its cause, it seems that ISIS has turned Twitter.

Someone claiming to be from the terrorist cult of ISIS, posted an online threat yesterday, apparently directed towards Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, saying that, “your [Twitter’s] virtual war on the Internet will cause a real war on you.” This virtual threat is understood to be in retaliation to Twitter’s clamping down on thousands of ISIS accounts being used to spread terrorist propaganda.

Posted in Arabic under the headlines, “Foundation for the conquest of Jerusalem for the Islamic State,” and “Twitter a target for the caliphate”, the incident has spurred on US media to speculate about ‘security concerns’ and that these threats should be taken seriously “in the wake of Charlie Hebdo”. It’s still not proven by authorities whether or not this latest threat is anything more than twisted trolling by one of many millions of mentally unstable individuals who regularly troll online.

Below, writer Shephard Ambellas raises some very interesting and poignant points regarding not only the nature and original purpose of social media platforms, but also how this latest ‘ISIS Crisis’ may be used to institute new algorithm controls of digital platforms like Twitter, which will curtail the free speech and genuine expressions of liberty.

This seems to be setting the stage for the state to react, albeit, in a predictable way…

ISIS members have not been very happy recently with the way social media outlets/platforms have censored their barbaric brand.

In fact Twitter’s co-founder Jack Dorsey and his staff recently received death threats over his companies heightened censorship policy which appears to be pointed directly at the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

However if one takes a closer look they will find that ISIS is a joint CIA/black budget-backed-and-controlled operation which serves as a ‘boogeyman’ to all the world’s sheep.

ISIS is a massive distraction which can be literally be used daily by the powers-that-be, across the globe, to further strip freedoms once invoked in us. Once you see this you may begin to realize how we, the ones with number; i.e. the 99 percent, are now being duped on a daily basis as we are tricked into forfeiture. Moreover propaganda is now getting so deep that one may need a good pair of hip boots to wade through all the bullshit and lies.

Recent reports claim that ISIS techies uploaded death threats against Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and members of his staff Sunday onto an image hosting website named justpaste.it.

A translation of the text, originally written in broken Arabic, reads in part:

“How to protect your employees hey Jack? Helpless when their necks officially become a target for the soldiers of the Caliphate and supporters scattered among your midst!”

[…] “Imagine the scene .. while outside of a nearby pub in the neighborhood, staff of Twitter, reeling from loitering sugar, dark darkness […] in the dark bounce him and cut off his neck.”

[…] “Virtual your war on us in the Internet will pull you real wars on earth! Is inevitable that it is only a matter of time, and perhaps some of your blood-thirsty black crusade has already started to move. Jack does not take it personally! It’s a creative returned to us after a long wait, and without sailor of body parts and blood, you have seen some of them Vantzeroa more.”

As you can see the threats seem rather serious. But could all of this be more CIA-backed scripting? An official narrative, pushing privately owned companies to participate in secret intelligence programs capable of tracking and even blacklisting ‘persons of interest’ from publishing/broadcasting their truths or message, whatever they may be, publicly on social media outlets/platforms.

According to a recent piece in the Guardian written by Alex Hern, “Twitter’s terms of service explicitly ban “direct, specific threats of violence against others”, and the company has followed YouTube in proactively shutting down Isis-related Twitter accounts, with the aid of the UK’s counter-terrorism internet referral unit.”

You see, they are working together — the State and Twitter.

In fact Twitter’s new counter-terror measures, along with the state’s, are so Orwellian that if the program suspects a user to be linked to ISIS or other so-called extremist group or groups Twitter then “moves aggressively to keep them off the social network” — in some cases cancelling new accounts created by the same user even before any type of offensive behavior has been displayed. This is full-on censorship and may even be up to the state to decide who stays on the social media and Inter-tubes.

While I agree that messages and acts of violence should not be posted on the Internet, I also feel that the Internet should remain a free and open place for people to communicate, vent, and express themselves.

I guess is what I am saying is: if you don’t like it don’t read it, don’t support it or promote it. Don’t give it the light of day.

If you like it, whatever it may be, support it. It’s that simple.

But whatever floats your boat, you have to admit that the powers-that-be now have their hands in everything. They want to get a piece of your money, action, and glory before you do. And soon, before you know it, the Internet superhighway will be a thing of the past along with any other outlet which allows free speech and expression as the oppressors continue to oppress.

YouTube is also moving in the same direction.

It’s time to diversify and multiply.
