Racist groups organize their actions through Telegram

On June 5, a car packed with white defenders roamed the streets of Knoxville, Tennessee, harassing and abusing people at a Black Lives Matter rally. The passengers of the car recorded many videos - videos that were later uploaded to the encrypted Telegram messaging application.


One of the groups / communication channels they used was The Fascist Group Esoteric Anti Root Collective - one of the many Telegram groups that support whites and have become very active amid protests in United States, reports CNN.

According to a new report by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), these groups have thousands of members. The ISD, a London-based think tank that studies extremism, says it includes frequent and explicit threats against minority violence. communities and BLM protesters - threats that in some cases have translated into violence.

In May, the group of white defenders, Rise Above Movement, launched its own communication channel on Telegram, which, according to the Countering Extremism Project, deals with anti-Semitism and anti-immigration issues.

Proponents of whites have moved to Telegram because the platform is not as strict in terms of content surveillance as other social media networks, says ISD as well as others. researchers. The groups share everything, from manuals on how to make XNUMXD weapons to praise for mass murderers.

A Telegram spokesman told CNN: "Telegram is a neutral platform used by both Black Lives Matter as well as by their opponents, as well as by thousands of other political movements around the world. Our mission is to support privacy, freedom of speech and peaceful exchange. ιδεών. Calls for violence are not welcome on our platform.

"Telegram allows users to report public conversations that urge violence. Our moderators regularly remove posts that violate the Terms of Use - and block channels that consist entirely of such publications. ” The spokesman continued.

"Users experiencing verbal violence are encouraged to report them using the in-app reference button or email"

ISD analyzed more than 1 million individual Telegram posts among dozens of pro-white channels. These groups, with names such as "Only White Lives Matter" and "Hans's Right Wing Terror Center", had an average of 1.773 members.
