If you aren’t familiar with the term “doxxing,” here’s the dictionary definition: Dox: to search for and publish private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.
Megan Squire, an Elon University computer science professor, has created a piece of software that carries the name Whack A Mole (yes, all but identical to the children’s game, Whackamole), a database with names and details that will keep tabs on hundreds of thousands of Facebook accounts that are suspected to be members of what she defines as “Alt-Right.”
She purposely designed the software for those of hard-left persuasion with the goal of getting right-wing patriots fired from their jobs, or, if taken to an extreme, killed. It’s dangerous information in the hands of Antifa due to the fact that they pursue and assault anyone they believe is “Alt-Right.”
The software is supposedly useful to target racists, but it is also being used to target and endanger outspoken conservatives.
She is also building a database for a group that uses violence against anyone they choose to label as a “fascist” — in other words, anyone that opposes their agenda.
This from NeedToKnow News:
An Elon University professor has devised a “secret weapon” to fight “far-right extremists” on behalf of Antifa — she’s made software to keep tabs on 400,000 Facebook accounts whom she suspects to be members of the alt-right.
And she’s using that program to dox anyone she deems a “far-right extremist.”
A new Wired Magazine article, published on Tuesday, highlights the work of Megan Squire, a 45-year-old professor of computer science at Elon University, whose program feeds data to the hyper-partisan organization Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) — as well as a “left-wing activist who she knew might take more radical action.”
The magazine reports that the SPLC’s analysts then use the information she gives them to “provide information to police or to reveal white supremacists to their employers, seeking to get them fired.”
The SPLC’s penchant for recklessly referring to organizations as “hate groups” previously resulted in a domestic terror attack on the Family Research Council.
The group’s headquarters was attacked in 2012 by a shooter who cited the SPLC’s “hate map,” which identified the FRC as a “hate group” alongside the Ku Klux Klan and Stormfront for its support of traditional marriage.
The anonymous left-wing activist, states Wired, posts the identities of the people whose information she gives him, along with their photographs, “for the public to do with what it would.”
