hello there is midday here in moscow you're watching r.t. international social media platforms are preparing for the 2020 u.s. presidential election with facebook now announcing a pilot program to monitor hate speech and says it will ban advertisement that discourage people from voting but there are concerns about the platform controlling just what people can see as r.t. scallop market expects. yes the world is a scary place lots of different views and opinions out there but don't worry silicon valley is going to keep our mind safe from being contaminated by bad ideas they know what's best for you and me facebook has come out with its 1st major announcement of 2019 and as part of its ongoing civil rights audit it's going to have a team of hate speech reviewers civil rights groups have been concerned about us mistakenly taking down compton meant to draw attention to and fight discrimination rather than promoted we're taking steps to address this including the u.s.
pilot program where some of the people who review content on facebook only focus on hate speech instead of a range of content that can include bullying nudity and misrepresentation and it's not just those hateful nasty comments they're going to protect us from in addition as we have the 2020 us presidential election and the upcoming federal us census approaching they will protect us from inappropriate comments about them so you think the vote is rigged against say bernie sanders like it wasn't 2016 well facebook says you best keep that analysis to yourself to protect elections we have a team across product engineering data science policy legal and operations dedicated full time to these efforts they're already working to burn ads that discourage people from voting and we expect a phone line as the new policy and its enforcement before the 20000000 teen gubernatorial elections and it's not just facebook that's concerned about what we might choose to read other high tech overlords are in on it too even donald trump
has noticed he says that's an attempt to insert bias and hurt him in the upcoming election twitter is it is just terrible what they do you saw what happened yesterday with google google is totally biased to trying to rig the election that's what we should be looking at now which and the phony which and which is proven do you row and trump does have a point if you. look at twitter's new rules they say that they will now be hiding tweets from world leaders and politicians that have been left online despite violating the rules due to the public interest now these tweets will only be available in rare cases. there are certain cases where it may be in the public's interests to have access to certain tweets even if they would otherwise be in violation of our rules on the rare occasions when this happens we'll place a notice a screen you have to click or tap through before you see the tweet to provide additional context and clarity we'll also take steps to make sure the tweet is not
algorithmically elevated on our service now of course twitter did not mention any particular president but mainstream us media has read between the lines and they are overjoyed jack dorsey lays the groundwork to finally sound for trump but will executives that ever pull the trigger on twitter one sends a trump through breaking tweets but who will make them harder to find is this the fix to one of twitter's most delicate problems trump tweets have gotten so bad that twitter my stunt giving them morning labels so in the lead up to a us presidential election we got gigantic tech monopolies basically announcing that they will be deciding for us what we are and are not allowed to hear and read and why well they've got to protect us from election meddling after all and make sure we choose to vote in the right way caleb martin r.t. new york. crowdfunding campaign has been going tray conservative journalist after
he was assaulted at a far left and if a march in portland it quickly raised over $160000.00 in donations more than 3 times the goal the end of a rally was staged to counter a far right march taking place in portland organized by the group of pride boys who are known for noting violence the opposing groups did eventually meet resulting in multiple clashes and also arrests artie's you've done of now looks at how the gloves are off when it's the far left versus the far right. this is what you can get if you don't have a ticket to ride the leftists train for this conservative journal. it went from threats to violence pretty quickly it seems the attack on him had been planned for them he wasn't a journalist he wasn't an equal diffuse into an islam of a white supremacist fascist because before trying to cover their rally no had
covered one from the other side of the political spectrum and in goes the far right activist and blogger who writes bogus pieces to incite hatred against muslims he is not a journalist and the capacity whatever your opinion on the far right activist getting punched in the face please describe his actual profession correctly until you 1st jigsaw puzzle is complete and if you are a piece that doesn't fit you're just not welcome. to believe. we believe survivors there are chanting that was senator ted cruz and his wife heidi being forced out of a washington restaurant by left wing activists in america in the u.k. and the rest of europe it's a discourse in which fists and kicks speak louder than words any opponent is
painted evil regardless of whether or not they have any history of engaging in far right violence and if the left can deal with you physically they will discriminate against you as happened to white house press secretary sarah sanders last year when she was refused service at a restaurant they will publicly ostracize you like when eric trump was harassed when eating out the left will even track you down and come knocking on your door. used. the left as on a search and destroy mission and progressive outlets will give plenty of outrage to announce the new rules when the goal justifies all means so when the day comes that the world feels return to its normal axis i expect we'll see fewer
highly charged encounters making headlines in the mean time the new rules apply if you're directly complicit in spreading hate or pitcher waiting suffering maybe you should consider dining at home now showing a set piece or nigel farrar should wear the braggs a tear gets a head shot from the sniper is fine well it's a joke after all except imagine a conservative channel joking around killing a leftwing i can for instance but as an undisputable force of good you don't waste your time talking with the enemy but trump said that there are bad people on both sides and he was heavily criticized but i think he was absolutely right the last they cry foul when there is any source or negative techniques used against them but when they use the same techniques and actually go further and employ firelands to meditation and harassment on a mass scale
a lot of cases using social media. so that they believe that there is just like if you call everyone a nazi then no one is a nazi or no one is or isn't is a genuinely negative force that she makes it more likely sources like fascists to rise and challenged the left isn't forcing a new order and by the new rules the gloves are off when dealing with dissidents. now the british home office has sparked anger after suggesting that nigerian women who are trafficked to the u.k. to work as prostitutes can enjoy a wealthy life when they return to africa shouted to been skied up to what prompted the statement. it's been described as at a crisis level the number of nigerian women trafficked into prostitution across europe thousands of women and girls every year forced into the sex trade often in
a bid to pay off the debt that they think could in being transported to the continent according to the new when these women are sexually exploited they raked. they are subject to all forms of human rights violations including torture rape extortion forced labor sexual and labor exploitation amounting to trafficking and contemporary forms of slavery people there were turned home there is also the risk of violent proprieties or the un has described that we have been a taishan in full social inclusion of trafficked persons back in nigeria as being particularly challenging however the u.k. government appears to be painting a very different picture one that's crazy trafficked women who return from europe wealthy from prostitution enjoy high social economic status and in general are not subject to negative social attitudes on return they're often held in high
regard because they have improved income prospects this is part of an official policy and information it's used by the home office decision makers who handle any protection and human rights claims that includes trafficked women who may be seeking asylum that's sparked outrage the issues are faced by the thousands of people who are trafficked from my injury to the u.k. if one of destitution them or they are brought by traffickers to have a copy of their free will and imply that on the return back home they'll be welcome back with open arms and for them to be here for the hard working people it is difficult to return back there are cultural stigmas behind them or what of the few people. a minder a software mover for fighting in which religion plays a big part of it and you put aside by your family or you because even the community also starred in them so these are negative aspects of africa fighting i mean which
the home office of the center for the understand there is also a huge issue for those who do return to nigeria and getting access to the support that they desperately need for the 2 percent of people who are trafficked to europe from nigeria with it and 50 to 500 of them actually face such a future fashion assault from their p.t.s.d. . a mental health issues over time but you have found me the local authority for the government itself of do not have the required for the teachers to teach help ingrained issues within the population to have these issues it's not the 1st time the home office has found itself questions sized over the way that it deals with victims of trafficking lawyers have accused of showing disregard for this safety after it emerged victims were being released from immigration detention back to the addresses where they were enslaved in 2018 it also emerged that under the hostile
environment policy victims of modern slavery and human trafficking had been jailed in breach of legislation while others had been deported in a statement the home office said victims of modern slavery shouldn't be prosecuted for criminal fast as they were forced to commit as a result of exploitation just months after backing a campaign urging nigerian women and girls to find jobs at home instead of risking a life of modern slavery in the u.k. some might argue that this latest advice that prostitution can essentially equal wealth could actually encourage more women and girls from nigeria to try their own luck and risk their own lives. r.t. london. has broken out between germany and italy after the captain of a german rescue ship was arrested after docking in sicily with a boat full of migrants italian interior minister mattis l.
vini branded the skipper's decision to head to an italian port without permission an act of war from justice so expect severe penalties for those who have made an attempt on the life of italian soldiers and repeatedly ignored laws from the other european countries germany and france above all expect silence and respect we are however ready to expel the german outlaw or the captain corona reckitt does have her supporters in germany hundreds in fact marched in munich being her arrest unfair and disproportionate for a minister hike a mass also weighed into calling her treatment unacceptable. to rescue it says not to screw the middle firms it is an acceptable to us that what happens and what we consider to have been human or terrorist acts is criminal why is it going to all the 31 year old was arrested on saturday after she talked with $32.00 migrants on board rock at allegedly steered the vessel in the direction of
a government boat that did try to block her from entering the port she apologized explaining her decision is being motivated by a fear for the migrants health she could now face up to 10 years in jail while the german public has already raised more than a 1000000 euros to cover her legal costs while a similar italian campaign has raised another 400000 but despite that italians and germans do appear divided over the skipper's actions. we think that people should be saved anyway but the history of europe has as a consonant based on migration for centuries and centuries and centuries and significant man who trying to start these things more than ever come between not i wouldn't call it an act of war i imagine that if there was war here and if i were sleeping and desperate for help and then they rejected me that would be so terrible . i mean that i think she did the great thing he buys italian laws shouldn't have
broken the let me i'm sorry for the 42 lives that i think she needs to leave italy like salvini says because we are already full of immigrants i think germany is a great thing helping growing but the immigrants could also go to germany watching i say we're going to take a quick break now we'll be back and see. what else still seems wrong why don't we all just don't all. get to shape out these days become educated and indeed trade equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground.
magic mushroom soup used out of context used in the wrong way carry carry potential arms like any any psychoactive substances. but used in the right way they seem to have quite a. profound therapy to potential and quite a good safety profile as well. join me every thursday on the alex simon show. and i'll be speaking to us in the world of politics sports business i'm sure business i'll see you there. welcome back i don't want trump has lashed out at iran after it exceeded the amount of low enrich uranium it is allowed to stockpile under the 2015 nuclear deal. man
it up as i have been informed iran has crossed the 300 kilogram limit based on his earlier we had announced our plan to exceed the limits therefore based on our previous announcement we made it clear what we were going to do we see it as a right based on the disappear way. they know what they're doing they know what they're playing with i think they're playing with fire the trumpet ministration has vowed to apply maximum pressure on iran over its nuclear ambitions and it's also suggested that iran was already producing high amounts of enriched uranium before the deal was signed the iranian foreign minister has responded with a simple tweet the word the one word question seriously he also said that the latest enrichment was justified by the fact that america pulled out of the nuclear deal the u.n. nuclear watchdog has since confirmed that iran has breached its limit under the agreement it is the latest twist in iran's long running difficulties with the west
. iran's done with dialogue at least it seems when it comes to washington. the usual sanctions imposed by the desperate u.s. government on iran's supreme leader and foreign minister has the effect of blocking the path to diplomacy for years iran has attempted to rebuild relations with the u.s. without any tangible results in 1988 u.s. military shot down a rainy and passenger plane that killed 290 civilians including 66 children and although the incident was considered an accident the pentagon never apologized. i believe that given the operating environment captain rogers acted reasonably and did what is nation expected to be in this regrettable accident and it was an accident it was a byproduct of the iran iraq war and saddened all americans and if past presidents are anything to go by to rand shouldn't hold its breath i'll never apologize for the united states of america ever i don't care. what the facts are still ready to
reconcile iran helped organize the release of u.s. hostages in lebanon but this goodwill gesture wasn't reciprocated by 995 even harsher u.s. sanctions were being lined up for iran i am formally announcing my intention to cut off all trade and investment with iran the 2nd round of reproach men came shortly after 911 i was one of the fairest of all the need to condemn these body and. as a human as a muslim and as an iranian and before you tube us again experience from a deep his sympathies we need to families of the victims and be to all of the great american people across iran candlelight vigils were held to mourn the victims but the diplomatic progress didn't last long 4 months later came president bush's axis
of evil speech which included iran this is a regime that has something to hide from the civilized world. states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil. finally in 2015 iran signed a deal with the international community including the us agreeing not to pursue nuclear weapons the united states together or international partners as a cheap something that decades of animosity has not a comprehensive long term deal with iran that will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon it was celebrated but short lived dubbed a bad deal by donald trump he walked away without any confirmation to iran was in violation so perhaps it's no great surprise iran is tired of talking. you know out of the states does not seem to be very much willing to. to iran otherwise there
would have kept the nuclear deal and built up on that at least they could have given to try but they've not done that they have rule in their former deal and this shows up there be reimposed sanctions to the harshest level possible this shows that they are after iran so run that if the united states removes the sanctions gets back to the nuclear deal to show that it shows respect towards iran even actually in that case could be different until then there couldn't be any kind of togs with the us no matter who is in office. meanwhile donald trump says that he wants to draw more u.s. troops from the afghanistan leaving only enough to deliver what he dubbed strong intelligence but he added that he'd like to withdraw completely but the country needs watching there are currently around $9000.00 u.s. troops in afghanistan over the last 18 years there the u.s.
has lost thousands of personnel and nearly a trillion dollars earlier my colleague mickey aaron spoke to the author and veteran of the conflict roger hill who argues the rules of engagement should be changed. the rules of engagements are outdated and when i say rules of engage i mean the law of war the law of armed conflict don't necessarily account for an enemy force that doesn't reciprocate them the geneva conventions concerning how we fight in the in how we conduct ourselves in warfare are written under the idea that the enemy will reciprocate how we fight and how we conduct ourselves in combat and the enemy does in fact reciprocate then fine that's that's one thing altogether but however we're fighting in a situation that's unprecedented for example with isis and the enemy. does not fight according to those conventions and so we're trying to force an undue burden on our military service members to conduct themselves when there is such
a deficit or disparity between how they fight and the enemy forces are fighting for you and finds the u.s. and allies in afghanistan by sponsible full most severely in death in the 1st 3 months of this year then the taliban and isis together. even you will call to further relax pentagon rules against enemy combatants highly irresponsible i think the idea the ideal behind why we're overseas in iraq and afghanistan is what needs to be questioned i think a lot of times we get fixated on individual instances of civilian casualties and persecuting military service members for the collateral that's created however the type of fight that we've been forced to engage in there is a large possibility or risk for inevitable collateral to include civilian casualties so you can't place an undue burden on the service members on the ground when that collateral is created and if you do then the people that you need to
bring alongside them when you do prosecute them needs to be the politicians in the senior military that sent them over there to begin with is that how you'll book you don't company it was redacted i can you tell us how and why yes so the pentagon has an office a security review. and they claim on their website that they can turn a manuscript around in 2 months and that is to review it for sensitive material and then get back to the authors with their recommendations on what material should be removed or changed they kept da company for a year and the content that they redacted 95 percent of it according to our party experts that we hired to review the manuscript outside of the pentagon was actually on federally sponsored websites that's us go government federally sponsored up sites. you're watching out international it's a happy company this afternoon all programs continue.
