The Pentagon plans to monitor social media of military personnel for ‘extremist content’ and ‘concerning behaviors’.
Not only is this an obvious big problem regarding the 1st Amendment, but who defines what is ‘extremist content’ or ‘concerning behaviors’?
Answer: the Biden regime of course…
“According to internal Defense Department documents reviewed by The Intercept (theintercept.com), as well as a source with direct knowledge of the program, as part of the Biden regime’s crackdown on domestic extremism, the Pentagon plans to launch a pilot program for screening social media content for extremist material.”
Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III has assigned senior adviser Bishop Garrison to lead an ‘extremism steering committee’.
Garrison is currently designing the social media screening pilot program, which will “continuously” monitor military personnel for “concerning behaviors,” according to a Pentagon briefing in late March.
“…in order to circumvent First Amendment restrictions on government monitoring,”
Although in the past the military has balked at surveilling service members for extremist political views due to First Amendment protections, the pilot program will rely on a private surveillance firm in order to circumvent First Amendment restrictions on government monitoring, according to a senior Pentagon official.
Though the firm has not yet been selected, the current front runner is Babel Street, a company that sells powerful surveillance tools including social media monitoring software.
The big problem as I see it, is the Biden regime (and their masters) define what ‘extremism’ is, or ‘concerning behaviors’.
Most of us here know that these leftists HATE conservatives, freedom and liberty loving patriots, anyone who voted for Trump, and most importantly ANYONE who doesn’t toe the leftist-marxist line… Those are their ‘extremists’…
This will not sit well with most of those within the military. Not good for morale. No sir. It is undermining, and in my view, unconstitutional.
But hey, that’s what Marxists regimes do. Purge the ranks of any contrarian think. Why? Well, I believe you know why… To get to the next step…
