(5) YouTube Taps ADL as Partner in Fight Against Hate
Posted 11 December 2008 @ 03:03 pm EST
NEW YORK, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- YouTube has reached out to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for its expertise in dealing with hate on the Internet. In one outgrowth of that partnership, the League is now a contributor to YouTube's newly launched Abuse & Safety Center, where users are empowered to identify and confront hate, and to report abuses.
The YouTube Abuse & Safety Center features information and links to resources developed by ADL to help Internet users respond to and report offensive material and extremist content that violates YouTube's Community Guidelines on hate speech.
"YouTube is an incredible tool for sharing videos and giving individuals an opportunity to broadcast themselves, but like other social networking sites it can be abused or used for sinister and dangerous purposes," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "There are those who may try to exploit the technology to spread racism, anti-Semitism and other forms of hate."
"We commend YouTube for their efforts to provide users with access to important information from those with expertise, such as ADL and others, on how to effectively respond to hate on the Internet and to report abuses," said Mr. Foxman. "Obviously, the industry has a vested interest in providing a safe online experience for the community of users, but they cannot go it alone. Maintaining a prejudice-free zone on the Internet means constant vigilance on the part of everyone. Parents, educators, industry, government and nonprofit watchdogs must work together. The bigots can only be sidelined if people of good will are actively reporting abuses, so that the Internet service providers can take action."
Since the advent of the Internet, ADL has played a leading role in working to combat hate on the Internet through education and advocacy. The League monitors extremism and hate on the Internet and works with major service providers, including Google, to identify and respond to offensive content. Last year, the League launched a major initiative to counteract cyberbullying by providing access to educational resources and information to parents, teachers, students and caregivers. ADL also serves as the U.S. representative to the International Network Against Cyber-Hate (INACH). More information is available on the League's web site at www.adl.org/Internet.
The YouTube Abuse & Safety Center was unveiled on December 11 at the annual conference of the Family Online Safety Institute in Washington D.C. and can be found at http://help.youtube.com/support/youtube/bin/request.py?contact_type=abuse. A link to the Center is also available at the bottom of every YouTube page.
The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.

Stormfront, the biggest Aryan racist organization online once called me an "obvious" Jewish shill. While it makes me happy to know the KKK types don't like me, I also think they are a contrived dialectical "problem" necessary to justifying an ADL "solution." I pretty much hate them too. I definitely hate everything they represent, and I really hated their representative in Seattle, the convicted arms dealer and notorious neighborhood bully who justified the Dawson COPS' raid, Herr Keith Gilbert.
I can't forget Zionism is an extremist racist political ideology cloaked behind the Holocaust religion. I do believe a lot of innocent Jews died in WWII, but I don't believe in the Holocaust as a sacred, holy, untouchable, beyond questionable historical event. To me that's ridiculous. I also believe a lot of other nationalities and religious people died in WWII too. I'm sure the Japanese consider nuking cities something very much worth remembering, but they're not forcing me to bow before their shrines or pray to their God. I know my grandfathers honored their dead comrades buried at Normandy. It was a WORLD war and people died in horrible ways, en masse, across the globe.
It's so horrible in Gaza now that even some leading Israelis are calling for an end to the Palestinian "holocaust," (but I only know that because I get Myers' email forwards). It's amazing that we are only "allowed" to hear the Bush/Obama Israeli's side of the Middle Eastern wars, wars they started with my countrymen's tax dollars, wars being fought by my country's sons (including my own... my 18 year old boy is a Marine now). The whole "free" Western world is fighting for the Zionist cause, shouldn't we know more about it? Hell no. The last thing we need is a bunch of taxpayers thinking they can comprehend an ancient dialectical conflict ideology.
I'd still like to find out more about the "missing" 5 million Germans. I'm still trying to understand why the Americans handed Berlin's women and children over to the Soviet rapists for ten whole days. And I'm still trying to understand why NOBODY in the mainstream OR alternative press will write ANYTHING about Herr Doktor Amitai Etzioni's connection to the founders of the Mossad or his Zionist influence on US domestic AND foreign policy. In 1948 Etzioni was assigned to bring in the Irgun troops who some say murdered Arab women and children in the town of Dier Yassin.
The Israelis didn't disband their "brownshirts," they brought them into the regular army. The REASON this matters to me is because the Israelis are training American military AND domestic COPS. The Israelis are training our local police to assassinate suspects in the U.S. The Israelis are training our local police to spy on our citizens and to create a database of all our most personal information. And since 2002 the US Supreme Court has been openly basing it's decisions on Talmudic Law.
Communitarianism is Zionism. This is why most people avoid writing about it. This is its connection to Christianity. It's a bizarre, convoluted philosophical, economic, political and legal, global religion. And obviously, its God requires untold numbers of human sacrifices (including the real Semitic Jews).
It's amazing how well the sides play out the deception. The stupid right wants you to think it's Soviet communism (which is only PART of the theory) and the equally stupid left wants you to think it's not worthy of a second glance. This is why nobody will explain EU case law to you or identify what KIND of law the International Court practices. We're never supposed to get the connection between the conflicting "sides." We're supposed to believe the International Court is above petty politics. We're supposed to believe the Universal Declaration of Human Rights will protect people the same way the U.S. Bill of Rights did (before the communitarians "balanced it). And we're required to believe the Israelis actually hail from the Middle East.
To merely question the relationship between the Soviet Mongolian soldiers who raped Berlin in 1945 and the Soviet Jabotinsky units that "assisted" the Irgun units in Palestine in 1948, or the CIA-Mossad-Iran-Contra drug connection in Southeast Asia and South America is simply not allowed. The fact that American police regularly travel to Israel for specialized "terrorist" training or that AK Governor Sarah Palin sent the Alaska National Guard to train with the Mongolian Army was never questioned ONCE during the campaign. Why didn't Katie Couric ask her about that?
In 2007 I was made to change one of my law articles for News With Views because ADL watchdogs threatened the editor with a major backlash if Walter didn't make me delete the "offensive" passage. I complied, so they've already sucessfully bullied me into voluntary, self-censorship. Other than that they've left me alone, maybe because I don't have a racist bone in my body and the ACL website doesn't promote violence against random Jews (or anybody specifically, even Etzioni). Plus, too many Jewish students have found my research on Talmudic Law to be a useful resource. My obscurity is probably a consideration too.
Now I'm making a YouTube video of myself talking about communitarianism, as soon as my silk veils arrive from India. I ordered two off ebay as a joke and planned on using them to cover my missing teeth when I go out in public. I see it as a poor women's alternative to grossing everyone out and advertising my lack of expensive dental care. In ten years of dedicated, unpaid legal researching and writing about Etzioni and his communitarian comrades-in-arms, I lost many important, irreplaceable things, including my bottom front teeth. Should I wear the pink or the black?
