    A Facial Recognition Company Says That Viral Washington Times “Antifa” Story Is False

    A facial recognition company says a viral Washington Times story claiming it identified antifa members among the mob that stormed the Capitol on Wednesday is completely false.


    XRVision told BuzzFeed News it has asked the conservative outlet for a retraction and apology over the story, which was cited in the House of Representatives after the riot late Wednesday by Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, an ardent Trump supporter.


    On Wednesday, the Washington Times published a story that claimed XRVision “used its software to do facial recognition of protesters and matched two Philadelphia Antifa members to two men inside the Senate.” It claimed one man “has a tattoo that indicates he is a Stalinist sympathizer” and the other “is someone who shows up at climate and Black Lives Matter protests in the West.” The story did not name the men or provide evidence that they were involved in antifa, a decentralized group of "anti-fascists" who go to protests around the US and whom the right often uses as a bogeyman.


    An attorney representing XRVision, which says it was founded in 2015 in Singapore, issued a statement to BuzzFeed News refuting the Washington Times story. The statement said XRVision’s software actually identified two members of neo-Nazi organizations and a QAnon supporter among the pro-Trump mob — not antifa members.


    “Our attorney is in contact with the Washington Times and has instructed them to ‘Cease and Desist’ from any claims regarding sourcing of XRVision analytics, to retract the current claims, and publish an apology,” the statement said.


    The story was published with the headline “Facial Recognition Firm Claims Antifa Infiltrated Trump Protesters Who Stormed Capitol” and quickly went viral. Prominent Trump supporters and right-wing media have spread baseless claims about antifa being involved in the Wednesday breach of the Capitol.


    The Washington Times said it was provided a copy of the XRVision antifa photo match by a “retired military officer.” But XRVision said it has no idea who that source might be and added that the alleged photo match is false.


    “XRVision didn’t generate any composites or detection imagery for the Washington Times nor for a ‘retired military officer’ and did not authorize them to make any such representations,” the statement said.


    “The image analysis that we performed were distributed to a handful of individuals for their private consumption and not for publication. XRVision takes pride in its technology's precision and deems the Washington Times publication as outright false, misleading, and defamatory.”


    The Washington Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Unbelievable scenes and yet not unexpected with Trump refusing to yield to the election result.

    It's going to be an interesting problem for the future, balancing misinformation spread through social media and censorship of that social media content.

    I'm calling it a piss poor insurrection, but an insurrection nonetheless.

    It was a bit light on burning and looting (though I did see one laughable attempt to make a bonfire from gear looted from a TV crew last night). They did, however, break in to the Capitol building and force a halt to the lawful process of government. That's insurrection right there.

    Anyway, it doesn't matter whether we think it's insurrection; Biden has called it insurrection, and since it was a piss poor insurrection, Biden gets to be the boss after all.

    Given that the Washington Times is a right wing shit website, that isn't surprising at all.

    While channel surfing I just heard some Republican on Fox blaming the actions of these knuckle-dragging simians on Pelosi tearing up the rubbish baldy orange loser spewed at the State of the Union, and the supposedly "fake" impeachment that only failed because Republicans are self-serving cowards.

    Let's hope the criminal trials are more successful.

    I'm saying it's going to be an interesting problem balancing "misinformation" with "censorship of information"...Nothing to do with what I personally believe.

    Latest reports are that Trump will be banned from Facebook and Instagram for the remainder of his presidency. Should have been banned at the start of it...

    ^^ Does knocking police in the head with lead pipes count as rioting? Or because they are white, it was ok? Anyone defending these people is a disgusting excuse for a human being.


    Rioters Hit Police Officers Over the Head With Lead Pipes During Capitol Chaos

    About 60 Capitol Police officers were injured in Wednesday’s violence at the U.S. Capitol, including one officer currently hospitalized in critical condition, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) told NBC News on Thursday. Fifteen officers were hospitalized altogether, as some were hit over the head with lead pipes, Ryan said. “It’s pretty clear there’s a number of people who are going to be without employment very, very soon,” Ryan said at a Wednesday press conference. “There was a strategic breakdown, for sure. You can bet your ass we’re going to get to the bottom of it.” Ryan is chair of the Legislative Branch Appropriations Committee, which oversees the Capitol Police. The department, in charge of safeguarding the Capitol and members of Congress, has received sweeping criticism for allowing a mob of supporters of President Trump to breach the building during the certification of his Electoral College loss.

    The absolute lunatics on his Twitter feed are saying that the peaceful Trump protest was hijacked by Antifa and it was they who stormed the Capitol to make Trump supporters look bad.

    I kid you not.

    Just think about what you said, "Should have been banned at the start of it", Now tell me please, who tells you who to watch on TV,the radio,social media? The old saying goes,"If you don't like it, change the channel" and that is what millions of Americans did, but you want all of those Americans to only have your "channel" because why, because you believe it as disinformation. The Hunter Biden laptop was "Russian disinformation", Hillery's emails was "A Trump Russian disinformation campaign"That's what you heard for 4 years, from "the trusted sources of news". Look if you are a dumby that believes in everything you hear on the news or social media, that is your problem, learn to discern, wait a few days, the headline is gone and the correction is in the bottom paragraph.

    Isn't that standard practice? Some mixed reports of gender, some saying male officer. I think it's irrelevant.

    Edit:
    So I went to wiki.

    Among others the US uses lead pipes in water distribution.

    Another excuse for Trump's behaviour right there


    Lead miners must have a few representatives in Lobbyland

    We are finally in complete agreement, god bless our police, I'm so happy that one comment has made you see the light, The cops are just there doing the job that we wont do, and for anyone to attack them like that is irredeemable, and i hope to Jesus above us that they are ALL caught and jailed for it,

    That particular tin foil hat theory might have started with somebody recognising this guy from the news footage:



    Jake Angeli calls himself the QAnon Shaman. He's been photographed in similar dress at Antifa rallies, as was being demonstrated on social media even while the Trumptards were raising hell in the Capitol.


    The lizard contingency went straight to the idea that Antifa were posing as Trumptards, entirely overlooking otter possibilities, such as:

    # A Trumptard had previously posed as Antifa;

    # An Antifatard, having been persuaded that some of his more extreme beliefs were fucktarded, underwent a political conversion and jumped straight to Trumptardery, bypassing any middle ground;

    # FBI undercover, posing first as Antifatard, then as Trumptard;

    # Anarchist for hire, will work for chicken wings;

    # Just a fucktard. I mean, look at him. He is in fact, clearly, just a fucktard.
