‘The Digital Equivalent Of AR-15s’: Al Gore Wants To Ban Social Media Algorithms

 Former Vice President Al Gore called for a ban on social media algorithms, which he argued were the “digital equivalent of AR-15s.”

Gore was speaking at the United Nations Climate Conference (COP28) when he made the comments, saying that the algorithms were designed to lead readers down obscure “rabbit holes,” and as such, posed a danger to those who used the platforms.


Gore compared the so-called “rabbit holes” to carnivorous pitcher plants that lure prey to come inside — and once inside, they can’t get back out.

“If you have social media that is dominated by algorithms that pull people down these rabbit holes that are a bit like pitcher plants,” Gore began. “These algorithms, they are the digital equivalent of AR-15s, they ought to be banned – they really ought to be banned.”

“It’s an abuse of the public forum,” he continued. “But when these — when people are pulled down these rabbit holes — you know what’s at the bottom of the rabbit hole, that’s where the echo chamber is. And if you spend too much time in the echo chamber, what’s weaponized is another form of AI – not artificial intelligence, artificial insanity.”

The audience laughed at that, but Gore continued: “I’m serious! I’m serious!”


“QAnon is just the best-known version of artificial insanity,” Gore said. “These devices are the enemies of self-government, and they’re the enemies of democracy. We need reforms for both democracy and capitalism.”

“Al Gore says social media algorithms are like ‘digital AR-15s.’ To globalist elites, free speech is a dangerous weapon that must be seized. They want you to listen to their propaganda & obey accordingly. The good news is you can hear the fear in his voice. They know we’re waking up,” @DC_Draino posted.

“It’s funny that Al Gore says social media algorithms are the ‘digital equivalent of AR-15s,’ when Conservatives were the ones being silenced online throughout the pandemic,” Judge Jeanine Pirro added. “And @AlGore in case you didn’t know — AR-15s are also protected by the second amendment, genius …”
