As I read this....I am again mindful of how Muslim Brotherhood has been brought into our gov in high positioned seats in National Security. Anyone thinking muslim jihadis and wannabes are gonna be frustrated and humiliated by online trolls and will quit their jihadi commands is either clueless about the true nature of islam or knows the truth and is working with the islamic tool - Taqiyyah!
All one has to do to know the truth is read the quran, hadiths and suras.
A member of the U.S. State Department has begun a new anti-terror initiative that is unlike others taken on by the U.S. government. It’s name: “Viral Peace.”
What’s the plan? Wired explains that instead of engaging in traditional warfare, this initiative is going to try to “annoy, frustrate and humiliate denizens of online extremist forums.”
Wired reports the program has already begun and was launched by Shahed Amanullah, a senior technology advisor with the State Department. In an interview with Wired, Amanullah said the goal is to use “logic, humor, satire, [and] religious arguments, not just to confront [extremists], but to undermine and demoralize them.”
Jarret Brachman, who studies online jihadism, thinks the tactic could work as those on the forums are often used by “massive narcissists [who] need constant ego boosts.” If you can get rid of the ”momentum, the anger and the virulence“ on such forums by balancing it with counterterror ”trolling,” some of the most verbose participants could dwindle off.
Viral Peace is still in its fledgling stages though — it doesn’t even have an official strategic plan yet. There’s also the fact that many of these contrary posts on forums could be taken down by administrators, as Will McCants, formerly with the State Department and now with the CNA think tank, told Wired.
McCants said the strategy could work if it targeted forums where terrorists were trying to recruit members.
So where is Viral Peace now? According to Wired, the program with a small budget is in the process of training “good trolls.” Meetings have been held in several countries to brainstorm. Amanullah believes that for the “trolls” to be credible, they will need to come from those who know the lingo best. As Wired explains it, the program hopes to “let Muslims in various foreign countries figure out which message boards to troll and how to properly troll them. Americans won’t know, say, the Tagalog-language Internet better than Filipinos; and as outsiders, they won’t have the credibility necessary to actually make an impact.”
Amanullah said this program is meant to supplement existing counterterror efforts — not replace them.
“I want to prove you can do small, inexpensive, high-impact projects that don’t just talk about the problem but solve the problem,” he said to Wired. “And solve it the right way: not with the government’s heavy hand but by empowering local people to do what they already know to do but don’t know how.”

Online jihadi trolls are portraying this as a hoax. Hummmmmmmmmmmmmm
What ya wanna bet SNOPES and other sites like them portray this as a hoax too.
Wahhabi Fatwa Permits Sodomy to Widen the Anus as a Means to Jihad
The funny part is that they are showing females in the pictures, when in their own countrys they could not be there or even open their mouth or they would be stoned.
Thanks for the information.
This is one of the stupidest hairbrained schemes I have EVER heard of....I'd say we're seeing a lot more of these trolls on sites like this one than the jihadists are seeing on their's. So who thought up this one.....Hillary's muslim sisterhood aide...or did Hillary herself come up with it? I cannot believe my tax dollars are funding something this ridiculous!
GE, Very well said, Anything around involving Hillary lately has become a laughing matter. Except for Gun Rights~there's where my hatred continues..to elevate..!!
I'd say that makes HER responsible for the hate talk, Ronald!
Golden, you may have hinted at the real answer here. This is a GOVERNMENT program, and who have they determined to be the most likely domestic terrorists? This program doesn't specifically target Muslims, it simply says extremist sites. Would our very own site not be considered by this leftist puke administration as extremist since we want to return to the constitutional from of government? Have to wonder about anything they say or do anymore, they can omit, punctuate, and flat out twist anything that they say into something totally different from what we hear.
Lets see, they now have their obot truther teams that troll the net, they now are teaching muslims to do this, (like they didn't already do it on their own). When these pest come onto sites like this, and then we confront them, there are always folks (more of the trolls - I dunno) that are real quick to label us the bad guys for calling them out and then promise to run all over the internet and bad mouth PFA. Well it's not only obots that do that....it's also other trolls for other agendas that do that same thing too.
True, so all the more reason to call them out like you have been doing, Twana. I'm sure we are already labelled as a radical group on the DHS radar screen....my feelings.....they can kiss my rear end. We are saying and doing nothing illegal and I challenge them to try and shut us up or off!
Newspeak and Doublespeak prevail, Johnny, but then, I don't have to tell you that as you already see it. This is what angers me and makes me more convinced that lock and load is the correct strategy these days!
Test-fired two lock & load devices, nice fire-arms, 50 rounds of ammo is all I need. My friend younger then me has 4 devices, daa has 3 sons..!! Everyone is well aware around here, the Sheriff's dept. hasn't bothered no one.They say keep your eyes open & report quickly.. Amen.!!
The inmates truly are in charge of the insane asylum. I cannot imagine what form of lunatic dreamed up this idiotic idea.
