Gab’s response to the ADL

 

 

Apparently CNN contacted GAB regarding allegations made by the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) in an open letter to the Department of Justice, which calls for a criminal investigation of GAB.  Here is a link to the ADL letter, which says in part:

To the extent Gab intentionally served as a forum for people to plan, coordinate, engage in or otherwise facilitate the criminal activity that took place on January 6, a Department of Justice investigation is warranted.

Here is GAB’s response to CNN and the ADL:

Gab has had regular contact with US federal law enforcement for years to ensure our platform is not used for unlawful purposes. Public safety is our top priority.

The ADL should be calling for an investigation into Facebook, where the protests were actually organized. Gab is great for a lot of things, but it’s not a utility for organizing events. Facebook, on the other hand, has a dedicated Events feature and there were many Event pages organizing the Jan 6th protests on their platform and several massive Facebook Groups as well.

Facebook has billions of users, up until last week our site only had about 1.5m users (although this is rapidly growing now by millions.) Facebook is also home to Facebook Messenger, which according to data is by far the largest distributor of child pornography on the internet. Funny how the ADL doesn’t seem to care about that.

Secondly, back in early December Gab put an immediate stop to a series of newly created accounts that were making threats of violence aimed at public officials. We worked diligently with law enforcement and spent several weeks warning our community about this behavior and taking swift action to remove it from our platform in the weeks prior to the January 6th protest. Our moderation and legal teams work tirelessly to ensure public safety. Threats of violence and illegal activity have no place on Gab. 

For more information I encourage you to read our response letter to Senator Warner.

The ADL has NO POWER over Gab which is why they hate us. It’s that simple. There is absolutely nothing they can say or do to get us to censor opinions they don’t like. The ADL has no other way to deplatform Gab after successfully pressuring hosting providers, payment processors and more over the years to stop us from building the home of free speech online.

So now the ADL is lobbying the US government to remove us from the internet. We will never bend to their demands and we will never censor legal, 1A-protected speech that hurts the ADL’s feelings. Ever. Jesus is King.

    To the extent the claim is provably libelous the Anti-Defamation League should be sued for defamation.

    Last week so many chastised me for recommending Gab over waiting for Parler to do its thing.
    Muh Free Market! Muh Free Speech!
    But tech is tech, hackers/crackers are hackers/crackers, and to the extent one doesn’t know one from the other one should ask.
    Some things just never leave ya.

    Gab is the Good Guys. Some saw last week, most see today.
    Parler? Ah, not so much.
    Gotta luv me some good old-fashioned hackers.

    Why fight when there are so many other ways to win without fighting?
