Neo-s, anti-Semites and white nationalists have been using a Google Chrome detector to hunt down those who it thinks might be Jewish. However now it seems the device is being turned against them.
The so called “Coincidence Detecto” was supposed to out Jews who were “hiding in plain sight”. But Coder Daniel Sieradsk has created the Detector, a Chrome extension that takes a database filled with s and puts swastikas in front of and after their names as they appear online.
He used the code, for their “Coincidence Detector” and hacked away at it until he could turn it around.
Using lists from organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League coupled with followers of major anti-semitic Twitter accounts, Sieradsk was able to populate a database of nearly 9,000 people.
“No one is accusing these s of hiding their online identities — though obviously, they’re hiding their real identities because they’re cowards who don’t have the courage of their convictions.”
