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

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)

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(?)

Pam Geller: “No Special Rights For Special Classes”

Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs was on Fox & Friends being interviewed about the ‘bus ads’ that may incite tensions between the Muslim Community and muslim citizens.

Ms. Geller argues the freedom of religion that America holds dear, and that apostates should have the network to escape the danger of devout muslim households that threaten them.

Pam Geller Speaks To Tennessee Tea Party On Sharia Law, Sharia Finance With Treasury Backing

Pam Geller Speaks To Tennessee Tea Party On Sharia Law, Sharia Finance With Treasury Backing

Ms. Geller speaking to the Tennessee Tea Party about the Treasury giving seminars on sharia finance, and how sharia law is creeping into our society very stealthily. Pam also covers the protest on June 6th against the mega-mosque being built at Ground Zero. On this issue, I must put my libertarian beliefs aside and state as an American, muslims MUST NOT BE ALLOWED to have the call to prayer at Ground Zero as it will symbolize their conquest of America. If this is allowed to happen, it will become the battle call for the reemergence of the Persian Ottoman Empire.

Stop Islamization Of America

Pam Geller’s seminar at the Tennessee Tea party:

From Pam’s site; Atlas Shrugs:

Islamic Free Speech Attack: Un-indicted Co-Conspirator, Hamas-Tied CAIR Demands Tennessee Tea Party Convention Cancel Pamela Geller

Look at this. Un-indicted co-conspirator, terror-tied CAIR is trying to get good, decent Americans in the Tennessee Tea Party to crush free speech by dropping me from the Tea Party convention this weekend. Contact them and let them know what you think.

This is all about the mosque. And I spoke the truth here. The grand jihadist Muslim Brotherhood at CAIR know what that means. It will be the icon, the rally call for every devout Muslim and jihadist across the world. They must have their symbol of conquest.

Who stands with me? Who is coming to Tennessee to stand for our unalienable rights endowed by G-d? Freedom of speech is the line in the sand. Once we lose that, the war is over. This is the battle, the information battle space. Guns, bombs, bloodshed are the results of what happens in the war of ideas.

Of course the Muslim Brotherhood CAIR wants to shut me up. Truth begets hatred.

CAIR Asks Tenn. Tea Party to Drop Anti-Islam Speaker CAIR PRESS RELEASE
Speaker claims Islam ‘inspired’ Nazis, posts images depicting Islam’s prophet as a pig

WASHINGTON, May 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on the organizers of the inaugural Tennessee Tea Party Convention to be held this weekend in Gatlinburg to drop an anti-Islam speaker who claims that “Hitler and the Nazis were inspired by Islam” and that Islam “mandates” lies and deception.

Let Inept Homeland Security Handle Foreign Visas?

Let Inept Homeland Security Handle Foreign Visas?

Deer In The Headlights?

AYFKM?  Senator Lieberman thinks it would be a good idea to have Homeland Security, who thinks WE are domestic terrorists, handle the issuance of foreign visas instead of the State Dept?  I personally think that someone like Pam Geller over at Atlas Shrugs should be the one to give the A-OK on all foreign visas instead of Janet “the system worked” Napolitano.  Don’t you?

Give Homeland Security role in U.S. visas: Senator

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Homeland Security Department rather than the State Department should handle U.S. visas overseas to meet security threats, the chairman of the Senate homeland security committee said on Sunday.

Connecticut independent Joe Lieberman raised the idea during a discussion on ABCs “This Week” of the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound plane on Dec 25.

“I believe, incidentally, that we ought to take a look at taking the visa application and admission responsibility from the State Department. It doesn’t really fit with foreign policy anymore,” he said.

“And in an age of terrorism, I think the Department of Homeland Security ought to be handling visas abroad.”

The 23-year-old Nigerian accused of the attempted bombing, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, held a multiple-entry U.S. visa issued in London, according to a statement by his family.

Leaders of the Senate committee say they will convene a hearing this month to examine airline security.

The committee’s top Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, said on “This Week” the State Department should have revoked Abdulmutallab’s visa after his family told U.S. officials they were worried about his activities.

The Homeland Security Department was to take control this month of a visa program for flight school students.

Obama Bowing Again; Where Is His Protocol Coach?

Obama Bowing Again; Where Is His Protocol Coach?

This would normally have received the Today’s AYFKM? Award except that we have seen this subservence before with the Saudi king while Obama was on his Middle East Apology Tour, and are no longer surprised or embarrassed because we know exactly what type of damaged psyche we had installed in our WH by 69,000,535 similar damaged psyches.

My only question is where Bambi’s protocol coach was, and if he explained that you should never bow so low as to be appearing to touch your shoes when the Emperor of Japan is trying to shake your hand?   This is who we have representing us around the world?  I continue to shudder, look forward to the end of the Obamanation, and the striking of all reference to this pResidency from history ala the Ancient Egyptian way.

Obamabowingagain

Atlas Shrugs has a great take on this continued demeaning of Americans and our allies, and Obama’s true feelings toward women.

Interesting Situation

From time to time I have received this email message from FeedBlitz; in fact all of the few people that have unsubscribed have had this message:

XXXX has unsubscribed from “Logistics Monster”

The reason is: 08: ISP requested removal

I am currently working with support at my most outstanding server, Media Temple to find out what actually is going on here. Considering the volume and type of visitor I have had over the last three days because of HR1388, I am not surprised that somebody is trying to red flag my site.

My three virus programs are not flagging my site.  Let me know if you are running into any kind of problem with this.

I thought you might like to see what happened to Atlas Shrugs who has the same problem:

RISKY ATLAS? FRAUD OR FREEDOM OF SPEECH?

A reader forwarded me this exchange. Does anyone have information on how this is generated? It is jaw dropping, the lengths the bots will go through just to suppress information.

H,
I don’t know if you know about this blog. It is by Pamela Geller, a Jewish woman from New York. She is about my age. She is very good. She has lots of people from all over who send her video and information about things that are going on all over the world. For example, I know who Hugo Chavez is, but I did not know about the anti-semitism that is going on in Venezuela right now. Two and three weeks ago, she had video and photos from every anti-jewish rally from all over. Anyway, this is a good place to get your news that you won’t hear or see on TV.

Just for knowing, I have been getting a lot of subscribers writing me that their daily updates have stopped coming. And why? The notifications I have been getting from Feedblitz (the subscriber list company) say Reader XXX has unsubscribed from “Atlas Shrugs.” The reason is: 08: ISP requested removal.

“ISP requested removal” WTF?

UPDATE: D’vorah adds:

“Pamela; that’s been happening to me also; you surf to website that gives you a warning that if you continue on it will load a virus into your computer.  I don’t know how an ISP (Internet Service Provider) for example, Time Warner or RCN, would have the “nerve” to block a site, unless the site actually has been “hacked” and that makes it impossible for others to continue on or continue on despite a scary warning.

If you get a chance, stop by that post and read the comments.

May The Best Search Engine Emerge, OR Let The Free Market Decide

This morning The Patriot Room linked into my site because I posted an article on RCP earlier in the week and Clyde of My Aisling tried to “also post” this same article, and it has since been taken down.  Here is a tidbit from Bill’s article concerning Google, Atlas Shrugs, and my article on RCP and then I will get on with what this post is really about.  Liberal Left corporations that backed The One are trying to shut down the middle and right.  It is time to use the Free Market to send a message to corporations that do not respect our Constitutional Freedoms.

The MSM’s nauseating, pro-Obama bias during the campaign was almost too much to bear. The Libs won, and the un-Fairness Doctrine is on the front burner, once again taking aim at right-wing talk radio.

The fallback position for Conservatives has always been, “well, we always have the right-wing blogs.” But even that has been somewhat in dispute. During the campaign, many anti-Obama blogs running on Blogger software were shut down by Google, which owns the software. That may have been due to Obamabots’ falsely (imagine that) complaining to Google that the sites were spammers, in which case the company’s policy of shutting down the sites pending an investigation kicked in and the bloggers were out of business. The moonbats succeeded in shutting down Republican blogs and Pro-Hillary blogs. (I moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress.com to a self hosted site in less than 3 months to protect it.)

Now it appears that Google is trying to finish off the right-wing blogosphere once and for all. Pam Gellar at Atlas Shrugs, has written a lot about Obama’s birth certificate controversy. She had a very high Google ranking for those search terms. Google, in a blatant attempt to protect Obama (Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, was a staunch Obama supporter and was in line for a cabinet post) has decided that the story is not newsworthy, and has stripped Gellar of her rankings, a technique known as “sandboxing.”

From World Net Daily.

Pamela Gellar of Atlas Shrugs claims the search engine giant has banned her groundbreaking articles about Obama – a technique many people refer to as “sandboxing.”

“There was no warning, no notice, nothing,” Gellar told WND. “They have basically sandboxed me.”

“Sandboxing” happens when Google strips a website’s rankings from its search engine results. According to some theories, this happens to new websites when Google puts them into a holding area known as a “sandbox” until the site gains credibility.

My buddy Clyde at My Aisling also noticed earlier in the week how a post by Diamond Tiger on the birth certificate issue submitted to Real Clear Politics’ Reader Articles was pulled by RCP on at least two occasions.

In a teleconference earlier in the week, I learned that Google tracks everything everybody does on their search engine.  If that isn’t Big Brother, I do not know what is.  This post could go any number of ways, but what I think is most important right now is to use the Free Market  to tell Google and any other large corporate entity that wants to curtail our freedoms that we ARE NOT BUYING!  If the majority of Americans, (who are actually center-right) stop using Google immediately, they will have to once again compete for their market share.  Here are some search engines to start using:

Gigablast:  http://www.gigablast.com

Live.com:  http://www.live.com/
