Why is Twitter amplifying the tweets of hate groups? Twitter’s promoted tweets and trends have recently featured harmful content by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), a designated hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Profiting from hate and hate groups is unacceptable.
FAIR isn’t just any hate group. It’s one of the worst of many bad ones founded by the white supremacist John Tanton. And through groups like FAIR, anti-immigrant white supremacists legitimize violence against our communities. FAIR is also one of the primary architects and cheerleaders of policies that have torn millions of immigrants away from their families and communities through deportation, imprisonment, and even death. In fact, Donald Trump has hired their former Executive Director, Julie Kirchner, to be an advisor to Customs and Border Protection.
