What’s Up Doxx?

The practice of doxxing is “to publicly identify or publish private information about (someone) especially as a form of punishment or revenge.” In 2011, for example, online hackers “claimed responsibility for posting personal information of more than 40 officers, including their home addresses, campaign contributions, property records, and names of family members after they claimed the LAPD oppressed them by shutting down the Occupy L.A. Movement.”

California’s doxxing laws, notes Daniel Greenfield of Frontpage Magazine, were created to prevent cyberstalking against women by ex-boyfriends, and “never meant to silence investigative reporting or cover for terror supporters.” That is what the Council on American-Islamic Relations now seeks. Shortly after the 10/7 massacre:

CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area staff and Islamist allies met with California Attorney General Rob Bonta and urged him to enforce laws against what the group claimed was “doxing.” Under California law, doxxing can be punished by up to a year in prison. Bonta has been considering running for governor and might be amenable to doing what it took to win Islamist support.

Bonta also believes it’s okay to tax people for ten years after they leave California, so he just might go for it. Meanwhile, CAIR’s Massachusetts chapter, Greenfield notes, “met with Attorney General Andrea Campbell and urged her to create an ‘anti-doxxing task force’ to target pro-Israel and Jewish groups.” CAIR is looking for allies in the government looking to “criminalize journalism” about Islamic terrorism. That could easily expand to anything less than worshipful of Joe Biden.

Recall the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board, under  Biden acolyte and aspiring chanteuse Nina Jancowicz. In 2024 moving forward, the struggle against government censorship is the struggle of memory against forgetting.
