Truth Is The New Hate Speech; PayPal Cancels Atlas Shrugs (UPDATED: PayPal Caves)

I left a comment yesterday on Snark’s site about Paypal pissing off the wrong people at the right time. Considering the network of bloggers and the speed with which information is now passed, is not the Internet a wonderful thing for pointing out the hypocrisy we are subjected to every single day…and then doing something about it?

TODAY, PayPal has plead a misunderstanding in the case of canceling Atlas Shrugs accounts. Pam is sticking with GPal (GunPal) and the Monster is switching over too.

Read Pam’s story:

PAYPAL CALLED, PAYPAL CAVED

As many of you know, on Friday of last week, my paypal account was “restricted.” After a recent review of my account they said, “it has been determined” that I was “currently in violation of PayPal’s Acceptable Use Policy. Under the Acceptable Use Policy, PayPal may not be used to send or receive payments for items that promote hate, violence, racial intolerance or the financial exploitation of a crime.”

Huh?

I posted it over the weekend and received over a thousand letters of support, hundreds of ccs of paypal account cancellations…….. the people spoke. Love that.

And so today, about an hour ago, a very pleasant and rather deliberately clueless executive called me from paypal to say it was all a big misunderstanding and Atlas would be reinstated (and the subsequent restriction of SIOA and FDI removed also).

Not so fast, Leslie.

UPDATE: Oh, the irony. Atlas reader Jon pints out that the inciters to violence and Jewish genocide, Revolution Muslim, has a paypal button. Got that? – Pam Geller, Atlas Shrugs


I’m sure many of my regular readers already know about PayPal shutting down Atlas Shrugs account (and her associated accounts) for breach of their ‘acceptable use policy’, but the newbies may not know about the fantastic work that Pamela Geller and Atlas Shrugs does to further the education of sleepy Americans about the stealth jihad happening in our nation.  If any of my readers know of an acceptable payment service that doesn’t use coercion to nudge bloggers into their way of thinking, PLEASE let me know.

From Atlas Shrugs:

Paypal Cuts Off Atlas: Truth is the New Hate Speech

The little money that Atlas generates (I have no large donors) is about to be cut off. Apparently the jihad is hard at work trying to kill free speech (and the bus ads and the 9111 no mosque movement) from making its way to those in pursuit of truth. Paypal contributions helps  pays for bus ads, rallies, live coverage (everything) and I so much as said so when asked repeatedly by the press who paid for the bus ads. Readers do and did.

Paypal is calling Atlas a “hate” site and will close my account if I do not remove the paypal option from my website. Accurate reporting and news is hate.

Truth is the new hate speech:

Please email or call paypal and let them know Atlas Shrugs is a news site and political blog. I am not responsible for the bad news in the world. I just report.

Great, another lawsuit. Want to make a contribution to my fight?

Mail a check to Pamela Geller, PO Box 121, 1040 1st Avenue, NY NY 10022.  Until I beat those pathetic Paypal pussies. Unbelievable.

If you want to send an email directly to the Acceptable Use Policy Department, here is the email address: aupviolations@paypal.com. ((hat tip Daryl)

Pat Condell; Just A Little More Common Sense On The Mosque At Ground Zero (Full Transcript)

Editor’s Note: The Protest against this mosque at Ground Zero is on Sunday.  More information at the end of this article.)

Meet Pat Condell, one of Britain’s top comics who espouses “Godless Comedy” has done a very serious YouTube video about the Mega-Mosque at Ground Zero and the true ramifications of said mosque in said place.

Mr. Condell is an internet celebrity with his YouTube rants about religion, but this particular video involves no comedy at all. In fact, the seriousness of the topic and the common sense put forward is pertinent enough that I have transcribed it.  I recommend that you send this post or copy and paste the transcription into your email lists and help put a stop to the terrorists’ symbol of supremacy over America; Cordoba House – the mosque at Ground Zero.

No Mosque At Ground Zero

All you Americans that have been following the islamization of Europe from afar, with horrified incredulity, if any of you are still nursing the cozy illusion that it could never happen in your country, it’s time to wake up and rub those sleepy eyes because the moment of truth has arrived.

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a plan afoot to build a thirteen story islamic center and mosque a few yards from Ground Zero in New York. A plan that’s been enthusiastically welcomed by politicians and civic leaders, eager to show how tolerant they are at other peoples’ expense. Is it possible to be astonished but not surprised?

Apparently, it’s not enough that nearly 3,000 innocent people had to lose their lives in a hideous act of religious mass murder, but now their memory has to be insulted as well, and the religion that murdered them allowed to build a towering triumphalist mosque on the ground where they died.

Is America losing it’s mind?! It says alot about the people behind this scheme that they have the bad taste even to propose building a mosque in such a place, but to describe it as they have as a tribute to the victims is beyond bad taste, and shows a profound contempt for those who died.  It would be hard to imagine a more provocative gesture short of standing on their graves and burning the American flag.  Yet, how typical of Islam, with it’s own hair-trigger sensitivity to the slightest imagined insult, to do something so arrogant and so insensitive.

It’s gonna cost $100 Million dollars to build this thing, but nobody is prepared to say where the money’s coming from.  We do know that the Saudis fund alot of mosque building in the West, when they are not busy trying to stamp out free speech at the United Nations or telling Fox News what to broadcast, so I guess we’ ll all be paying for it every time we start the car.

You know, it seems to me a much more appropriate place for a mosque in New York would be the United Nations building itself, because that organization has become so islamofriendly in recent years that frankly I’m surprised it doesn’t already have a minaret.

You know, I’m not even American but it makes me sick to my stomach to think that Islam is going to be allowed anywhere near Ground Zero, because 9.11 could never have happened if not for Islam and it’s teachings and it’s doctrine of jihad, and it’s false promise of an impossible afterlife without which none of those gullible lunatics would have been persuaded to carry out such an insane act.  And also because, it wasn’t just an attack on America, but on all of us in the civilized world.  As were the bombings in London, in Madrid, in Barley, the shootings in Mumbai, and everywhere else that the religion of peace decides it doesn’t like the way people do things.

Any religion that endorses violence is incapable of delivering spiritual enlightenment. How obvious does that have to be? And it has no right even to call itself a religion.  Without the shield of religion to hide behind, Islam would be banned in the civilized world as a political ideology of hate, and we have no obligation to make allowances for it anymore than we do for Nazism.  It’s a bigger threat to our freedom than Nazism ever was. Yes, both are totalitarian, and both divide the world unnecessarily into us and them, the pure and the inpure, and both make no secret of their desire to exterminate the jews, but we were all, more or less, on the same side against the Nazis, whereas the islamo-nazis have got plenty of friends among people in the West, who ought to know better.

American politicians now regularily make the kind of dhimmi noises about diversity as an excuse for islamization.  The same kind of thing that we’ve become so depressingly familiar with in Europe.  It’s true that diversity has been good for America; it’s been the making of that country, but American diversity has always been grounded in respect for the values, the individual liberties that make America what it is.  Islam rejects those values and that’s the difference, and it’s a very important difference.

Islam despises what America is; it rejects everything America stands for, including freedom and diversity, and any muslim who denies that, is a liar.

The organization behind this scheme is called “The Cordoba Initiative”, and the building is to be called “Cordoba House”.  And this is because Cordoba or Cordo-ba  is the city in southern Spain where muslims built their first great mosque at the start of, and as a symbol of, their conquest of Spain.  The Ground Zero mosque is intended to serve the same purpose in America.

Building mosques on conquered, sacred ground is standard practice.  It’s what Islam has always done to assert it’s supremacy, and that is what’s happening here.  And, of course, they know how insulting it is, how offensive it is.  Are you kidding?  Why do you think they chose a site as close as possible to Ground Zero, or do you think that that was just an accident?  And they also know that once it’s built, it’ll be there forever as a permanent affront to all Americans, gloating in triumph and a major bridgehead in the ongoing stealth jihad.  That’s how the muslim world will see it, and that’s how they will be encouraged to see it, and to be fair to them, that’s exactly what it will be, confirming what they always suspected, that America is a soft country, a decadent country, crippled by political correctness, confused and guilt ridden with no backbone and no pride.

They plan to open it next year on September the 11th, the tenth anniversary of the atrocity.  Is that tasteless enough for you?  I’m surprised they haven’t organized a 757 flight past.

But you know, it doesn’t have to be this way.  Here in London, we had a similar situation just recently where they wanted to build a gigantic  mosque to overshadow the Olympic Games.  Public Opinion put a stop to that, and Public Opinion can put a stop to this disgraceful plan as well, and it can tell this group, and the politicians that support them that enough is enough, and that this is one insult too far, and that America is a big country and there is plenty of room for them to build their offensive mosque if they have to; somewhere else.  Somewhere perhaps more appropriate to the spirit of their religion, like the Arizona Desert, or Death Valley.

Peace, and God Bless the Kafa(?)
