LONDON – Wikileaks, international organization founded by Julian Assange that publishes secret information provided by anonymous sources, has obtained documents exposing the efforts of Silicon Valley tech giants working in tandem with U.S. Intelligence to undermine and eventually take down alternative social media platforms such as Gab and Minds.
“They are resolute in preventing what happened during the 2016 elections. Populist movements around the world are gaining strength through these alternative networks. To combat this, they are using proprietary AI technology and machine learning to surveil and eventually sabotage these platforms. They acknowledge the fact that they can no longer regulate the narrative through censorship and disinformation alone. Destroying these platforms is their only way to regain control. What they are planning is truly frightening. The world needs to know before it is too late,” said an anonymous whistleblower during an exclusive interview with Mendaco Press.
Gab and Minds have been gaining strength among those who promote free speech in the wake of recent social media censorship. Gab has recently unveiled a revolutionary free speech tool called Dissenter. It gives users the ability to add comments to any website without fear of censorship.
