Andrew Bolt noted today that there are many “home-grown” radical Islamist terrorists being discovered in the US nowadays. Whilst being born and even “bred” in the US, they are still following the fundamentalist hardline Islamic doctrine so fondly declared to by the likes of Osama bin Laden.
Here’s what I said there and will disseminate here also:
Yes it is true “that finally the ideology of radical Islam is effectively reaching into the United States to disaffected people here over the Internet.”
And much of that is on YouTube.
However, before blaming YouTube too much, which is such a valuable resource in so many other ways, why not visit YouTube Smackdown which is a site dedicated to flagging and removing terrorist videos from YouTube.
It really is up to us. Don’t rely on the government or corporations to do what we as citizens should be doing.
The link is always at the top of this blog. Hey, sure, probably no one bothers with it every day, but it’s worth a click once in a while.
Just for the record, they do link to videos out there right now on YouTube that people are watching… many of them our own home grown…
Operation YouTube Smackdown, anecdotally, has been very successful since it started. Much harder to find videos not already taken down, and there’s not a whole left out there. But the FBI has noticed “In the last six to nine months, the FBI has seen more domestic Islamist extremist activity than at any time since immediately right after 9/11.”
And stuff like the following is still out there as of now.
Worth a click of that mouse or not?
