Tucker Carlson lashed out at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she claimed, on MSNBC that Fox News has been spouting “hateful rhetoric” about Afghan refugees. Carlson said Omar herself is a bad example of how poorly America takes in refugees.

“I know what some of these people are worried about,” Omar said of the GOP earlier this week. “It’s that they’re worried that refugees like myself, when they come to this country, will outshine them. But that is just their own failure and their inability to find success in the ways in which refugees have found success in this country.”

“So, the obvious response to that is to attack poor Ilhan Omar,” Carlson said after replaying Omar’s statement. “But we’re not going to do that. The truth is, this is our fault. She is our fault. Ilhan Omar is living proof that we are not very good at resettling refugees.”

According to Carlson, the Minnesota lawmaker was inundated with propaganda to hate America from Americans themselves. “She was saved from a refugee camp in Kenya as a child by the kindness and generosity of America,” Carlson said. “And yet she has grown to hate America and the people who live here. Where did she learn those attitudes? Well, of course, in college, our colleges. We taught her to hate our country. She became worse after she got here. We ought to pause before we do that again, to anyone, even if they’ve been translators.”

Currently, President Biden has reached out to neighboring countries to encourage them to accept more refugees. Plane loads are already on their way to the U.S.

Facebook, Instagram Employees ‘Censor or Delete’ Protests against Iran

Iran President Rouhani

Former and current Facebook and Instagram employees are shedding light onto the “fact checkers” that are censoring vital content such as protests against Iran. “According to a report by BBC Persian, these employees admitted that at all levels of the company, the Iran regime’s influence has infiltrated, leaving biased and pro-regime content monitors to restrict, censor or delete posts about the current protests in Iran” reports The Foreign Desk.

Similar to censorship at the companies in the United States and elsewhere, the behavior is its own political movement. “The actions by these Iranian employees to remove images of the demonstrations in Iran and associated hashtags helps reinforce the Islamic Republic’s argument that the protests are not so widespread.”

According to one of the former employees who had his identity hidden for security purposes, told the BBC Persian in an interview from Germany, that the workers travel back and forth between Europe and Iran. “About 90 percent” of the decision making on censorship is done by these “fact checkers.”

“These are individuals who single-handedly take posts down. According to the source, employees are not allowed to have their personal cellular devices with them at their workstations, so these individuals go to the break room to report a post from their personal phones and then come back to their workstations and address the ‘complaint’ they just created.”

 

The Foreign Desk adds:

In 2019 TELUS International became the third-party company contracted with Instagram and Facebook to become their fact checkers and address complaints from users reporting posts for violent, hateful, or threatening material. 

A second source, a former TELUS employee, said approximately 400-500 Iranians work at the company in Germany, a country that is known to have diplomatic and bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic. 

The Islamic Republic has learned from the Green Revolution of 2009 to infiltrate Western social media outlets and their parent companies to control the narrative and prevent the international community from siding with anti-regime demonstrators.
