Who is Yoel Roth? You’ve probably heard his name in connection with the newly released “Twitter Files,” but who is he?
Yoel Roth was head of “Trust and Safety” at Twitter from 2019-2022. He developed Twitter’s fact-checking initiative to counter the statement of former President Donald Trump. He was a key player in getting Donald Trump removed from Twitter in 2021.
This is what we know about Roth:
“Yoel Roth worked as a researcher, Dangerous Speech Project at Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, where he developed and implemented protocols for collecting and evaluating large data sets studying online hate speech from August 2014 to June 2015.”
The mission of the Dangerous Speech Project is to examine speech that leads to violence to groups of people. After looking over their website..they appear to be a far-leftist activist organization connected to NGO’s like the World Economic Forum and United Nations. The first article in the DSP blog section is titled: “Tucker Carlson is inciting Violence Against Doctors.” Written by Susan Benesch, her article laments Tucker on his comments about transgender medical care for children. She writes, “ Carlson has made it clear that protest will not stop him from inciting murder and other crimes. And Fox News, his employer, appreciates both his views and the revenue they generate. On previous occasions, advertisers have pulled out of the Tucker Carlson show, but that has not been enough to discourage him or Fox. It’s time for cable and satellite TV providers to draw the line against inciting violence, and remove Fox from their offerings.” In contrast, I couldn’t find anything on the numerous threats against conservative U.S. Supreme Court Justices made this summer by far-left ANTIFA groups or activist individuals on Twitter. The DSP is full of links to far-left activist groups like GLADD and others.
“The Dangerous Speech Project receives its operational funding solely from private foundations, including the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Open Society Foundations.” What is the Open Society Foundation?
Open Society Foundations (OSF), formerly the Open Society Institute, is a grant making network founded and chaired by business magnate George Soros. Who is George Soros?
So…let’s put it all together:
Roth worked for the Dangerous Speech Project before Twitter…which is backed by George Soros and the WEF. Roth banned a sitting president of the United States. My question is how deep does this go? Are all media and social-media platforms hamstrung by the rules of the WEF and George Soros?
