They also have a track record of attacking pro-lifers and Trump supporters.
Google’s big experiment in digital counter-terrorism begins rolling out today. Collaborating with its own in-house think tank, Jigsaw, the new effort seeks to bury ISIS-related propaganda on YouTube.

There’s a myth that needs to be shattered when Canadians imagine the standard template of a radicalized terrorist, according to Canadian terrorism expert Phil Gurski.
Many people believe the usual profile of a terrorist is a disenfranchised and alienated young man who came from a bad home environment, is poorly educated, has poor job prospects and may have some mental health issues.
“It couldn’t be any further from the truth,” said Gurski, who spent 15 years at CSIS, specializing in al-Qaida-inspired extremism and radicalization.
