WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, America First Legal (AFL) released documents obtained from its investigation into the Biden administration’s communications with Imran Ahmed and his UK-based censorship group, the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH). The emails from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of State show how the Biden Administration mobilized the federal government’s counterterrorism assets to support CCDH’s global censorship campaign.

Biden Mobilizes the National Security State for Censorship

From the day it took power, the Biden Administration mobilized the national security state to support its censorship program. On June 15, 2021, Biden’s National Security Council published its first-ever National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism.

To justify censorship, Biden’s strategy asserted that “Internet-based communications platforms” make Americans “vulnerab[le] to domestic terrorist recruitment and other harmful content.” Effectively, the Biden Administration turned to the national security state and its allied technology companies to censor political opponents. In Orwellian fashion, it said: “All told, a better, more holistic, and coordinated understanding of and information sharing on today’s threat will allow a more effective and comprehensive response. That response will address not just current and imminent incarnations of the domestic terrorism threat but also its contributing factors before they can generate still more violence in the future.”

Biden Endorses the “Christchurch Call to Action”

As the Biden Strategy explained, as part of its effort to control information, “We will also build a community” of “critical partners,” including “state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, as well as foreign allies and partners, civil society, the technology sector, academia, and more.” These “interlocking communities that can contribute information, expertise, analysis, and more” and “With the right orientation and partnerships, the Federal Government can energize, connect, and empower those communities – communities whose input was critical to the formulation of this Strategy itself.”

Accordingly, it declared that “in a global, multi-stakeholder setting … with partner governments … the United States endorses the Christchurch Call to Action to Eliminate Terrorist and Violent Extremist Content Online.”…

…Eva Hartshorn-Sanders promoted online censorship legislation around the world, including the UK’s Online Safety Bill, testifying before the House of Commons that “websites like The Gateway Pundit profit from Google ads to the tune of over $1 million while spreading election disinformation. That has led to real-world death threats sent to election officials and contributed to the events of 6 January. It is not something we want to see replicated in the UK.” Eva Hartshorn-Sanders also opposed a principle “that is framed negatively about preventing platforms from removing content, rather than positively about addressing content that undermines elections.”

The Gateway Pundit has reported on Imran Ahmed’s continued attacks on The Gateway Pundit the last few years. We had NO IDEA the Biden regime was funding the organization.

In another previous attack on The Gateway Pundit Imran Ahmed labeled The Gateway Pundit a racist group for pointing out the violent and costly attacks by Black Lives Matter criminals on American cities.

In a July 2023 Twitter Files’ release journalist Paul Thacker focused on the Disinformation network – The Center for Countering Digital Hate – “that Twitter used to silence, censor, and demonetize conservative and independent websites.

Thacker mentions one of the Center for Countering Digital Hate reports that included The Gateway Pundit.

Center for disinformation dark money

Started by Imran Ahmed, the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) sprang out of nowhere in late 2017 or early 2018. At the time, Ahmed was leaving a job as a political advisor to members of the British Labour Party and had just written a book

How this background as a political operative prepared Ahmed to brand himself as an expert in disinformation is unclear. His LinkedIn account makes no mention of his work as a political operative in England, although his biography at CCDH states that he is an “authority on social and psychological malignancies on social media, such as identity-based hate, extremism, disinformation, and conspiracy theories.”

Ahmed now lives in Washington DC and his organization does not provide a list of funders.

In early 2021, CCDH posted a report titled “The Disinformation Dozen” that alleged the majority of COVID vaccine disinformation came from just 12 accounts, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Ahmed released the report just as the Biden administration began their COVID vaccine rollout and shortly before the House held hearings on disinformation at social media companies.

Twitter officials began sharing Ahmed’s findings, soon after CCDH released them that March. “COVID-19 misinfo enforcement team is planning on taking action on a handful of accounts surfaced by the CCDH report,” reads a March 31 email, noting that Ahmded’s report was released right before the House held a hearing on disinformation where Facebook’s Mark Zuckeberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsy both testified, along with Google CEO Sundar Pichai…

In a bumbling campaign they ran the year prior, CCDH targeted 10 websites for allegedly posting racist narratives. CCDH claimed in one example that Zero Hedge had run a racist article that stated Black Lives Matter is “practically a revolutionary operative of the CIA via Soros” and another article that suggested Black Lives Matter is a George Soros “Astroturf” campaign for “leftists and their agenda to reshape the fabric of American society.”

Fact checkers with the NBC News “verify unit” fell for CCDH’s fake report, writing, “Google has banned two far-right websites from its advertising platform after research revealed the tech giant was profiting from articles pushing unsubstantiated claims about the Black Lives Matter protests.”

The CCDH report mentioned by Thacker, Defund Racism: Black Lives Matter was used to urge advertisers to blacklist The Gateway Pundit and other conservative websites from mainstream advertisers.

The Center of for Countering Digital Hate used this as an excuse to include The Gateway Pundit on their list of racist websites.

They included TGP because we reported on the insanity of the FBI labeling white supremacists the country’s number one threat when Black Lives Matter-Antifa just destroyed $2 billion in private property in their violent attacks on American cities.

This is not the first time the Center for Countering Digital Hate has targeted The Gateway Pundit.

The Gateway Pundit was targeted by the same group back in February.

he Center for Countering Digital Hate is a far-left group based in Britain led by Imran Ahmed. The sole purpose of the organization is to harass internet advertisers from posting ads on conservative websites in order to silence conservative voices and put them out of business.

Below are CCDH’s latest areas of research, investigation, and advocacy of the far-left group:

Anti-vaxx misinformation
Antisemitism
Climate change misinformation
Misogyny

Previously, notorious stalker Taylor Lorenz used the Center for Countering Digital Hate, or vice versa, to attack Elon Musk and prominent conservatives and medical experts as extremist influencers on Twitter.

They offer no evidence to back up their claims. This was another very shoddy report by Taylor Lorenz that could open her and the Post up to potential lawsuits.

The article lists the top 10 Twitter Extremist Influencers.

The list includes:

Andrew Tate
Dr. Robert Malone
Andrew Anglin
Emerald Robinson
Rogan O’Handley (DC Draino)
Peter McCullough
Stew Peters
Anthime Gionet (Baked Alaska)
Rizza Islam
Gateway Pundit

The article by Lorenz includes a line about extremist accounts of “self-professed Nazis, disinformation actors, misogynists, and homophobes.”

It’s not clear how they tie that to The Gateway Pundit, a website with women, minorities, and gays, but be assured that we will investigate their allegations.

But we had no idea the Center for Countering Digital Hate was smearing The Gateway Pundit in the House of Commons – And Joe Biden was funding them!
