Twitter’s allowance of terrorist-supporting, anti-Semitic content on its platform is so glaring, even leftist The Atlantic bashed the platform for refusing to deal with the issue.
Atlantic writer Yair Rosenberg wrote June 9 that Twitter allows anti-Semitic hate speech on its platform, most notably from Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei . “The platform’s decision makers don’t understand anti-Semitism, and they aren’t embarrassed by it,” he wrote. The leftist Atlantic couldn’t resist bashing former President Donald Trump (a very pro-Israel , pro-Jewish president) in the article. But the outlet did at least acknowledge Big Tech’s bias: “Despite what they claim, I’d argue that social-media companies don’t ban people simply for disseminating dangerous misinformation—they ban people whose misinformation makes their leadership uncomfortable at liberal dinner parties.” On June 8, the Ayatollah posted his latest in a years-long series of anti-Semitic tweets: “Today, #Zionism is an obvious plague for the world of #Islam. The Zionists have always been a plague, even before establishing the fraudulent Zionist regime. Even then, Zionist capitalists were a plague for the whole world. Now they’re a plague especially for the world of Islam.”
As The Atlantic explained, “[e]very anti-Jewish bigot” simply replaces the word “Jew” with “Zionist” and thus attracts somewhat less condemnation and attention for their anti-Semitic screeds. The Atlantic noted that Twitter “banned another notable world leader” (presumably Trump, whom the article had just discussed) but not Khamenei. “A strong case can be made that given Khamenei’s access to political and military power, the virulence of his anti-Semitism, and the way it defines his global outlook, he is the world’s most powerful anti-Semite,” the article stated. “He denies the Holocaust while threatening another, and deploys the very rhetoric used to incite the murder of Jews for centuries while actively pursuing the nuclear weaponry that might make […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
