Silicon Valley Quashes ISIS Videos


james-wright-foleyInternet firms are starting to crack down on gruesome ISIS execution videos following the viral spread of ones showing the beheadings of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

A Silicon Valley insider told the Associated Press that companies drafted plans to remove these videos last week after Foley’s execution and put the plan into action when ISIS announced Sotloff’s death Tuesday.

The insider would not say whether this came at the request of the government. YouTube, Twitter, and other sites¬†shut down accounts within hours of the Sotloff video.

  1. My heart goes out to the family of Steven Joel Sotloff. I’m full of anguish for the physical and emotional torturous pain this poor soul was made to endure.
    These barbaric pigs who are such cowards they wouldn’t show their faces are most-likely doing these killings because they’re getting air time which is really all they want: the proof is the lecture this barbarian gives the White House golfer. Cheat them of the publicity and…??? they’ll stop!?!?

  2. We Americans do not want to sully the good name of the ISIS murderers. That would be a travesty of justice and totally politically incorrect.
    Let’s just cover up for them and make believe that it never happened.
    That will make us feel a lot safer, AND
    seemngly make a lot of money for Silicon Valley.
    Low-lifes and anti-semites – unite in Silicon Valley.
