HOPE AND CHANGE:  Feds Creating Database to Track ‘Hate Speech’ on Twitter

The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter.

The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.

The “Truthy ” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.”

The university has received $919,917  so far for the project.

Your tax dollars used against your freedom of speech.

This reminds me of something:
