Not long after its launch, the pro-Trump free speech social networking platform GETTR was flooded with Jihadists spreading propoganda.
The social media platform was started a month ago by members of former President Donald Trump’s inner circle, features reams of jihadi-related material, including graphic videos of beheadings, viral memes that promote violence against the West and even memes of a militant executing Trump in an orange jumpsuit similar to those used in Guantanamo Bay.
According to a report by Politico, “The rapid proliferation of such material is placing GETTR in the awkward position of providing a safe haven for jihadi extremists online as it attempts to establish itself as a free speech MAGA-alternative to sites like Facebook and Twitter.”
The Islamic State has admitted to such insane actions, saying it “has been very quick to exploit GETTR,” said Moustafa Ayad, executive director for Africa, the Middle East and Asia at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, a think tank that tracks online extremism, who first discovered the jihadi accounts and shared his findings with Politico.
