We’re in the middle of a “war” on the Internet, and it’s not going to end any time soon.
The battle is raging online, and the Internet is being used to promote hate speech, terrorism and violent extremism, according to a new report by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC).
The report found that more than 6.5 million Americans have been targeted by cyberbullying, and a majority of them are women and girls.
The report comes as the Internet continues to explode with hate speech.
It was released this week and calls on Congress to address cyberbullies by expanding the definition of cyberbulling to include the use of social media to spread “anti-semitic, racist, and other hate speech.”
The report also notes that social media companies like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have been using data analytics to monitor users’ activity.
“Facebook has built a system that uses real-time data from your activity to help them identify patterns and predict when you’re engaging in a particular kind of behavior, and they’re looking for patterns,” EPI Executive Director John Sides said in a statement.
“These are big data tools that can help them detect hate speech and other dangerous behaviors.”
The EPIC study is based on data collected by social media platforms including Facebook, Google and Twitter.
It also examined the “Internet-enabled hate speech” that has been reported to law enforcement agencies, as well as the content of social networking posts that have been shared on the platforms.
The study found that the majority of hate speech was online and on the sites of “alt-right” (or “alternative right”) figures like Richard Spencer and Milo Yiannopoulos.
The Pew Research Center reported in April that nearly three-quarters of Americans believed online abuse of minorities and people of color is on the rise, while the number of hate crimes has risen by 20 percent over the last year.
“Online harassment and intimidation has become the new normal in American life, and hate speech online is the latest weapon of modern warfare,” said David A. Cohen, executive director of EPI, in a release.
“If we want to stop the rise of online hate, we need to take a hard look at how the Internet works and stop the abuse of the Internet and other tools like Facebook and Twitter.”
The Internet is a powerful tool for online hate and violence.
But it’s also used for good, with reports of police being able to track online threats against officers.
EPI also found that hate speech is “an increasing factor in the violent crimes of hate groups” including white supremacists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and Islamic extremists.
And in April, President Donald Trump issued a statement calling on Congress and the President to pass new legislation to expand the definition.
“It is time for Congress to pass a bipartisan bill that protects our civil liberties,” Trump said.
“As a nation, we have a responsibility to ensure that our laws are not abused or violated in any way.
We must pass new hate crimes laws to ensure a safe and open Internet for everyone.
Hate is the enemy of the people.
And it must be stopped.”
EPI will be releasing its report this week, and will share its findings with the American public, as part of the Center for Digital Democracy’s online campaign called The Internet’s First Amendment.
It’s a long shot, but the Internet has long been used as a tool for political, social, economic and ideological attacks on the public.
This report, along with previous studies, show the power of the online.
We need to start taking online hate seriously.
The internet is the new battleground.
