Censorship/Defunding MUST CEASE!


John R. Houk

© August 25, 2018

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you are probably aware the wicked Left has been trying to mute Conservatives and Counterjihadists for some time via censorship and cutting off revenue streams.

 

I have posted on this effort to mute Conservatives several times. Here are some of the most recent titles:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Robert Spencer Censored

 

Now I am discovering the attack is pouncing on Counterjihad writer Robert Spencer. These are the platforms banning Robert Spencer:

 

Patreon

 

Mastercard has reportedly forced funding platform Patreon to kick conservative author and “Jihad Watch” owner Robert Spencer off its site.

 

“My name is April and I’m on the Trust & Safety team here at Patreon. I’ve been notified by Mastercard that we must remove your account from Patreon, effective immediately,” wrote Patreon in an email to Spencer. “Mastercard has a stricter set of rules and regulations than Patreon, and they reserve the right to not offer their services to accounts of their choosing. This is in line with their terms of service, which means it’s something we have to comply by.”

 

GoFundMe

 

After Patreon banned me without explanation, I set up a GoFundMe account, with the same goal in view of constructing a studio for Jihad Watch videos, and quickly raised over $3,000. …

 

 

But today, I got this:

 

Hi Robert,

We’re sorry, but we have canceled your 08/21 withdrawal of $3,299.42 from WePay Payments.

The funds from this withdrawal have been added back to your balance.

 

I also got multiple notices from GoFundMe; each informed me that a particular donation to me from a particular person had been refunded.

 

When I asked for a reason why they had canceled my withdrawal and were refunding all the donations to me, they did not, of course, answer.

 

MasterCard and Visa

 

[David Horowitz message to Robert Spencer]

 

Dear Robert,

 

We’re under attack by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)…

For years, the SPLC has labeled the Freedom Center a hate group and tried to get organizations like Amazon, Facebook and Twitter to ban us and silence our message.

 

Yesterday, SPLC finally convinced MasterCard and Visa to cut us off. Now we can’t process donations from any major credit card companies.

 

In fact, if you received Robert Spencer’s e-mail last night, you may have noticed your donation was DENIED.

 

The pattern is quite obvious. If the Left can’t outright censor Conservatives and Counterjihadist websites, the plan is to starve the finances until there is no resource to operate.

 

THIS MUST CEASE!

 

Below is the Spencer email flowed by a Jihad Watch article on the situation by Christine Douglas-Williams.

The History of Jihad ad

 

The fascism is coming down fast. I’ve now been banned from Patreon and GoFundMe. MasterCard and Visa have stopped processing donations for the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Why? Because David Horowitz and I are defamed as “hate group leaders” by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which is now strong-arming businesses to deny service to us. The SPLC has been discredited as a dishonest, far-Left propaganda outfit determined to destroy all those who dissent from its Leftist agenda, but that doesn’t matter: these companies are allowing no appeal, no discussion, no right to reply.

This will by no means end with David Horowitz and me. The authoritarian Left is working energetically now to ban all dissenting voices in the run-up to the 2018 elections.

If this keeps up, only Leftists will be allowed any kind of platform anywhere.

It’s clear that I am one of the principal people in the Left’s crosshairs. Muslim Brotherhood-linked Congressman Keith Ellison has already demanded that Amazon stop stocking books by people who are blacklisted by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

I wrote The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS as a challenge to the elites’ narrative about jihad and Islam. And it’s clearer every day now that the elites are brooking no challenges to their narrative, and are moving as fast as they can to muzzle the people who refute their lies and distortions.

 

Given that initiative, and Ellison’s specific demand to Amazon, I don’t know how long The History of Jihad will be available, although I’ll circulate it in mimeographed form if I have to.

The book is listed as out of stock right now at Amazon: the publisher and distributors were caught off guard by demand much greater than they expected. But if you order it now, you should receive it soon — as long as the book burners don’t shut the whole enterprise down. They’re on the horizon. Click here to order The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS now.

And please – again, while you still can – make a tax-deductible donation to Jihad Watch here.

Citizens beware: MasterCard and Visa cross the line into totalitarian thought control

 

Visa-MasterCard

 

By CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

AUG 24, 2018 4:20 PM 

Jihad Watch

 

Like many people, my inbox has been flooded by concerned citizens about David Horowitz and Robert Spencer over MasterCard and Visa, blocking their flow of revenue needed for daily operations. Spencer stated:

 

This is getting very serious. It won’t stop with David Horowitz or me. The Left is moving quickly to silence all dissenting voices in the run-up to the 2018 elections. The freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society, and it is rapidly being destroyed in the United States.

 

To add to the heartfelt concerns of those who respect the work of these stalwart defenders of freedom and human rights, all citizens would do well to recognize that the actions of MasterCard and Visa are also a slap in the face to their customers. These companies have infringed upon the rights of anyone who supports the cause of freedom and the efforts of Horowitz and Spencer. Customers who choose to donate to these necessary initiatives have been told that they are financing “hate” and therefore are stripped of their right to donate. They have been dictated to by MasterCard and Visa, who are acting as if they do not have the right to think for themselves as long as they want to use the services of MasterCard and Visa.

 

As totalitarianism overshadows America, no one can say that they were not forewarned. Both Horowitz and Spencer have been sounding the alarm for years; the Muslim Brotherhood plan for North America has been public knowledge for years. Its Explanatory Memorandum is expansive and detailed in describing its mission:

 

“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

 

9/11 “mastermind” Khalid Sheik Mohammed stated:

 

“We will win because Americans don’t realize . . .we do not need to defeat you militarily; we only need to fight long enough for you to defeat yourself by quitting.”

 

Mohammed was correct. Far too many citizens of the West have quit — they take their freedoms of granted and are in denial, having not learned the lesson of history that fascism is insidious and does not take control of societies suddenly, as many seem to think. Its invasion is methodical and gradual.

 

Some examples of how businesses have joined the totalitarian initiative:

 

Kellogg Co. announced on November 2016 its decision to pull ads from Breitbart “because its 45,000,000 monthly conservative readers are not ‘aligned with our values as a company.’” Here we see Kellogg’s attempting to control the thoughts of citizens and impose its values on consumers. Fortunately, Breitbart “launched a #DumpKelloggs petition and called for a boycott of the ubiquitous food manufacturer, which lead to plummeting stock and reported $53 million loss in the fourth quarter.” The arrogance of Kellogg Co. was astounding, with CEO John Bryant claiming that the company’s massive losses were just a “coincidence” and not due to the boycott.

 

In the three months following Kellogg’s war against Breitbart:

 

the company has faced allegations of racism toward factory workers and has been accused of allegedly profiting from the use of child labor. Its non-profit W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s ties to radical anti-American billionaire George Soros, hate group Black Lives Matter, and deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro have been exposed, and the Michigan-based company is set to shutter dozens of distributions centers and lay off more than 1,100 full-time employees.

 

Last August, Paypal decided that it, too, wanted to interfere with freedom of speech and thought. The company cancelled Jihad Watch’s account, but it was reinstated not long afterward after public outrage. Meanwhile, the Islamic State used PayPal to send money to jihadis inside the U.S., but that revelation wasn’t enough to stop Paypal from pontificating in its letter announcing its reinstatement of the Jihad Watch account:

 

PayPal’s Acceptable Use Policy in our User Agreement prohibits individuals and groups from using PayPal for activities that promote hate, violence, or racial intolerance.

 

This is a key statement, as Jihad Watch is not a hate site. It is a news aggregate and commentary site dedicated to exposing the broad range of human rights abuses committed in the name of Islam, and reports from a range of news sites are referenced. Take, for example, a few recent Jihad Watch headlines:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are but a mere few examples, but they go on and on. What normal citizen can point out the “hate” in exposing such news? Every single day, reports emerge from the four corners of the earth about human rights abuses committed in the name of Islam, Islamic supremacist incursions into once-peaceful countries, the slaughter and injury of innocent people committed in the name of Islam, and jihad attacks. If reporting and discussing these facts are an offense to Muslims and deemed to be “hateful” and “racist,” then we need to have serious open discussions about why and how this is so. But there is a strenuous effort to shut down all discussion of these matters.

 

Meanwhile, who remembers or cares about the victims? Jihad Watch, the Horowitz Center and others that are unashamed to stand for human rights and who are grateful to those who died in the cause of freedom. Fierce battles have been waged against fascism, and if history has taught us anything, we should know that fascist regimes endeavor to control the thoughts and words of their people, as does the Southern Poverty Law Center today. The SPLC has mutated into a hate group itself. In the words of its former spokesman Mark Potok, who spent 20 years as an SPLC senior fellow (according to LinkedIn):

 

Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring hate groups, I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, completely destroy them.

 

As reported by Breitbart:

 

The David Horowitz Freedom Center has had their donation processing system blocked by Visa and Mastercard allegedly following a campaign by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Visa has since contacted Breitbart News to deny involvement in the blacklisting of the Freedom Center.

 

It is by degrees that totalitarians manage to seize control. The establishment media becomes a mouthpieces of the people in power, and soon, the population becomes enslaved to their ideologies, as we see with Islamofascism. It is abusive, oppressive and aims to silence all dissent as it marches against the House of War in order to subvert it and bring it into the House of Islam. This 1,400-year-old doctrine has infiltrated the West in the private and public sectors, and the Muslim Brotherhood, in accordance with its memorandum, has managed to redefine “hate” to mean any criticism of Islam.

 

Now Horowitz and Spencer stand accused of “hate,” without any semblance of justice or due process. MasterCard and Visa have bowed to the totalitarian impulse, and in so doing have also indicted their customers. This will continue, if there is no resistance. Let’s hope that boycotts and class action suits will soon be in the offing, prompted by both consumers and the leaders of conservative organizations.

Social Media Exclusion of Conservative Thought


John R. Houk

© April 18, 2018

 

If you are a stalwart American Conservative you are fully aware the largest social media platforms have been operating a stealth war that favors Leftists (aka Liberal, Progressive but maybe better described as Moonbat, Snowflake, etc.). With this understanding of Social Media, I received an email from ACT for America notifying readers that PayPal is now not allowing donations via its online platform evidently citing the erroneous “hate-speech” label on lists from organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC is as close to a Leftist Communist organization as it can be without admitting so.

 

Left-Wing organizations such as the SPLC are heavily invested in fundamentally transforming American away from American-Christian values into a brainwashed society that believes and acts as the State would have society (i.e. YOU) believe.

 

I am pretty vocal as a mouthpiece to preserve the fundamental Rights that have inalienably been endowed by the Creator of all that exists and intended to be protected by the Founding Fathers’ founding documents that define citizens of the USA as Americans.

 

I am vocal but small potatoes as far as the Leftist multi-conglomerate Social Platforms are concerned. Take heed, once the Leftist controlled Social Media giants deceptively limit and remove the dissemination of Conservative thought, the small potato bloggers will soon follow. Start massively complaining to these giants, because advertisers are interested in targeting potential Conservative customers as much as Liberal customers. Barring that, pray some Conservative geeks develop a social platform that is competitive and simple to use as the geeks that lean Left.

 

Find ways to donate to Conservative organizations being stifled by Facebook, Google, Youtube, Twitter and PayPal. In the meantime, support the small potato Conservatives who would be the next target if not already so. On a personal level, I’ve been in Facebook jail thrice, Google+ jail once, I’ve had a couple Youtube videos removed with a warning about my channel’s existence, yet I have escaped Twitter and Paypal’s notice to date.

 

I operate three blogs but only one has a PayPal buttonSlantRight 2.0, Paypal has graciously allowed my NCCR blog (WordPress platform) a donation link and if you visit the Overblog platform (European origin) – you could use this “Support SlantRight 2.0” support this small potato Conservative voice.

 

ACT’s email emphasizes how Left Oriented Social Media giants are targeting Conservative and Counterjihad organization using hate lists as those developed by the SPLC as an excuse to target Conservatives and Counterjihadists. Because of what PayPal has done to ACT for America, here is an embedded link to support ACT’s work in educating Americans about threats to their lives and communities: DONATE to ACT for America. This donation link by-passes PayPal.

 

Below is the ACT email. The email included the entire text of a WND.com post about this war on Conservatives. However, I am cross posting from WND rather than the email.

ACT for America is Under Attack!

Dear John,

 

A new study published from our friends at the Media Research Center confirms what we already knew. Conservative organizations are facing an existential threat from tech companies that are founded and run by leftists. You see, companies like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google are more than just tech companies, they also control how and when we get our news.

 

Further, tech companies partner with leftists including the Southern Poverty Law Center to attack organizations, like ACT for America, who have been wrongly labeled a hate group. Cited in this article below is a specific example of how leftists used the SPLC to pressure Paypal into dropping us as a client. Because of these scare tactics, we can no longer accept donations through Paypal – a leftist run tech company.

 

The left’s mission is to silence any ideas differing from their own and with control of the most influential tech companies in the world – they are off to a great start.

 

For Freedom,

ACT for America

CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT FACES EXISTENTIAL THREAT FROM TECH, STUDY SHOWS

‘If the right is silenced, billions of people will be cut off’

 

By BOB UNRUH

April 16, 2018

WND

 

CENSORED

 

A new study from the Media Research Center says conservatives, and their ideas, right now are facing an existential threat from tech companies founded and run by liberals who have decided that only their voice should be heard on disputed issues.

 

“The conservative movement is facing a threat to its very existence – a new, insidious form of media censorship,” the MRC report, available starting Monday, said.

 

“Media bias has always been an enemy of the right. Liberal journalists relied on talking points and talking heads that agreed with for their stories. Conservatives were typically ignored or even targeted by old-school media monopolies but while conservatives were excluded, their organizations were still allowed to function and even flourish. The internet gave the right new tools to go around traditional media – websites, email, video and social media. Conservatives’ power online continued to grow as groups expanded their base of supporters and were even able to flourish online.

 

“Now, all of that is under threat,” the report states.

 

How?

 

It’s not complicated. If the liberals who run the big companies, like Facebook, Google, Youtube and Twitter, all suppress conservative speech, and the report concludes they are, no messages that contradict leftist propaganda will be heard.

 

“Like it or not, social media is the communication form of the future – not just in the U.S., but worldwide. Just Facebook and Twitter combined reach 1.8 billion people. More than two-thirds of all Americans (68 percent) use Facebook. YouTube is pushing out TV as the most popular place to watch video. Google is the No. 1 search engine in both the U.S. And the world,” the study finds.

 

And those organizations are not about transparency and fairness.

 

“War is being declared on the conservative movement in this space and conservatives are losing – badly. If the right is silenced, billions of people will be cut off from conservative ideas and conservative media.

 

“It’s the new battleground of media bias. But it’s worse. That bias is not a war of ideas. It’s a war against ideas. It’s a clear effort to censor the conservative worldview from the public conversation,” the study said.

 

Among the key findings in the study is that Twitter leads in censorship – and Project Veritas even caught staffers boasting on hidden camera they had been censoring conservatives through a technique known as shadow banning.

 

There, users think their content is being seen widely, while Twitter deliberately suppresses it.

 

On Facebook, its trending feed has been caught hiding conservative topics.

 

A 2016 Gizmodo story warned of the bias, with testimonies from former employees they’d been instructed to “hide conservative content.”

 

“On the other hand,” the study said. “the term ‘black lives matter’ had also been placed into the trending section even though it was not actually trending.”

 

Google’s search functions, the study said, simply help Democrats.

 

“Google and Youtube’s corporate chairman Eric Schmidt is known to have helped Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign,” the study said. “The company’s search engine had deployed a similar bias in favor of Democrats.”

 

And YouTube simply shuts down conservatives’ videos. That deprives them of monetization first, but also the publicity that successful videos generate.

 

“YouTube moderators must take their cues from the rest of Google – from shutting down entire conservative channels ‘by mistake’ to removing videos that promote right-wing political views. YouTube’s special creators for change section is devoted to people using their ‘voices for social change’ and even highlights the work of a 9/11 truther.”

 

Further, tech companies partner with leftists including the Southern Poverty Law Center, and more, to try to further their campaigns.

 

It cites the SPLC and the Anti-Defamation League.

 

“Both claim to combat ‘hate,’ but treat standard conservative beliefs in faith and family as examples of that hatred. George Soros-funded Propublica is using information from both radical leftist organizations to attack conservative groups such as Jihad Watch and ACT for America, bullying Paypal and other services to shut down their funding sources.”

 

Twitter’s “Trust and Safety Councli” [sic] has 12 liberals as members. Only one conservative.

 

And the “fact-checkers” that the companies, whose empire encompasses $3 trillion, use? All “anti-conservative,” the report says.

 

A strong commitment to transparency and fairness with a dedication to free speech likely is the only solution, the study notes.

 

The companies “must stop pretending” that disagreeing is the equivalent of “hate speech,” and the bias must be removed.

 

That means groups that routinely label core conservative values as “hate” need to be addressed.

 

“Tech companies can’t expect conservatives to trust a system that is so blatantly one-sided,” it said.

 

Included in the study was a quote from Niall Ferguson, Hoover Institute senior fellow: “Nothing has changed politics not only in the U.S., but worldwide more than the advent of companies like Facebook. Forty-five percent of Americans now get news from Facebook …. Mark Zuckerberg, who runs Facebook, has the power to tweak the algorithm that determines what gets into your news feed and my news feed. And that is an awesome power … because let’s face it Mark Zuckerberg’s politics are liberal politics. He has no desire to see 2016 happen again.”

 

The study, by Ashley Rae Goldenberg and Dan Gainor, documents, “The problem starts deep inside the liberal corporate cultures of the companies. Eric Schmidt recently stepped down as head of both Google and Youtube. While still in that role, he aided the Hillary Clinton campaign. … Zuckerberg has been a strong proponent of the Dream Act and LGBT issues.”

 

Then their employees reflect those biases.

 

Facebook workers donated 99 times more to Hillary Clinton than President Trump. For Google, it was 63 times.

 

A survey showed 89 percent of very conservative, 74 percent of conservative and 69 percent of libertarian workers are “hesitant of being themselves while at work for fear they might lose their jobs.”

 

Sen. Ted Cruz, the study notes, warned just weeks ago that if the companies are a neutral public forum, they cannot allow censorship. If they are not a neutral public forum, “the entire predicate for immunity under CDA (Community Decency A[c]t) is claiming to be a neutral public forum, so you can’t have it both ways.’

Social Censorship and Racism


John R. Houk

© January 16, 2017

 

I have had my issues of being placed in Facebook and G+ jail under the (FALSE) accusation of posting inappropriate thoughts that violate social community rules. I am guessing many other Conservatives and Counterjihad writers sharing the truth without profanity have also experienced a social ban here and there. Social Ban = Social Jail.

 

The social network via Yahoo Groups (ccpga – Restricted Group) posted a link that exposes this jail phenomenon. Sadly Yahoo Groups are not as active as other social groups; nevertheless, the relatively small members at ccpga are quite active. It is there where I found a link to Constitution.com exposing the idiotic censorship at Facebook.

 

The Facebook poster – Grant Phillips – wrote about the racism involved with teenage Black adults torturing a White disabled mentally challenged young man. Phillips’ thought was pertaining to the MSM not being outraged by “kids” torturing a disabled White man yet contrarily the MSM does not get steamed by the Obama Administration alerting the public to Islamic Terrorism after a terrorist murderer shouts Allahu Akbar. Or calling Black protesters destroying, looting and burning cities are just misunderstood people. Implying Black-Americans need to demonstrate such frustration because of years of oppression. The reality is such actions make Americans displeased and contribute more to racist reactions to show their displeasure.

 

Anyway, read the Constitution.com article which should go viral to protest Facebook censorship and I dare say a cover-up.

Facebook Bans Yet Another Conservative Viral Post that Only Tells the Truth

 

By Onan Coca 

January 15, 2017

Constitution.com

 

About a week ago a gentleman named Grant Phillips, who in and of himself is not famous or celebrated for any particular reason, posted an important and thoughtful note to Facebook.

 

His argument, written in the wake of the vile Chicago hate crime that saw four African-American adults livestream their kidnapping, abuse, and torture of a special needs white man, was well-written and completely factual. Here’s what Phillips had to say:

 

If you yell “f*ck white people” while torturing a special needs white kid, the city of Chicago won’t call it a hate crime and the superintendent will say it’s “just a bunch of kids.” If you yell “Allahu Akbar” right before blowing yourself up in a public area, POTUS won’t call you an Islamic terrorist. If you burn down cities and destroy property, you’re a misunderstood protester fighting oppression. But if you voted for Trump, you’re a violent racist and white supremacist.

 

Facebook to Phillips – Removed post

facebook-to-phillips-removed-post

 

Mr. Phillips’ post quickly went viral reaching over 100,000 people without much pomp or circumstance, a true miracle considering Mr. Phillips lack of fame. The quick expansion of the message must have bothered someone at Facebook, though, because within a few days Facebook had removed the post for violating “community standards.” Apparently, Facebook’s community standards doesn’t appreciate completely honest, factual, and researchable information.

 

Now, on Facebook, Phillips and his friends, along with many other conservatives, are responding by reposting his message far and wide across the social media network. One of his friends argued, “Facebook is showing an increasing proclivity for punishing Conservative views. Let’s not let them get away with it.”

 

I agree, let’s make sure that Facebook knows we won’t let them get away with their suppression of conservative views.

I appealed my G+ suspension – APPEAL DENIED!


google-censored

John R. Houk

© November 11, 2016

 

On November 9, I vented my frustration with Google for suspending my access to write on G+ because I was accused of violating “User Content and Conduct Policy”. I appealed that suspension largely based on guess work in 11/9/16 venting.

 

Yesterday Google notified me that my appeal was denied. The reason they gave me for violating “Content and Conduct Policy” was very lacking in details other than stipulating “… your content was in violation …”

 

Thus, the insinuation is that my content was in violation and not my conduct. AGAIN! The Google reasoning is my Conservative views and values is a violation of what is acceptable content.

 

Now let’s be clear: Any content I post does not have or contain profanity. There is NO incitement to commit acts of violence in my content. However, I have received threats of violence in the past, particularly from Muslims that grieve that criticism and the exposing of truth inherent in Islam as blasphemous. Unlike the Liberty inherent in the U.S. Constitution, Islam’s revered writings call for the death of anyone (even Muslims) who disrespect Islam or its prophet Muhammad. Hence the death threats against me and/or my family.

 

Leftists have occasionally threatened violence but most often like to hurl insults usually laced with profanity when they are unable to respond intelligently to my criticism. It is my thought that this current suspension I must experience for about two weeks (that includes an – OR ELSE from Google) is the result of Leftist frustration because Donald Trump won the election against – here comes a possible content violation – CROOKED HILLARY.

 

The OR ELSE might be expedited by Google in some future date for I refuse to believe criticizing the Left or their intelligence is a content violation in any social platform available to both Conservatives and Leftists. IF a social platform – Google, Facebook, etc. – desires to limit Conservative or Counterjihad content, those social platforms should spell out specifics. My reasoning is the hate speech and threats from Leftists and Muslims far exceeds any criticism leveled by the Right. Unfortunately, there a Right Wingers who do express racist vitriol however those tend to be on the extreme Right. AND YET extreme Leftists and “Radical” Muslims are able to exact profanity and threaten violence with impunity because of the Left thinking of Multiculturalism must be protected even if it is offensive to Conservatives, Jews and/or Christians.

 

I am still very annoyed by this G+ suspension. Can you tell? Do me a huge favor and plus-one this post via your Google+ account and perhaps even share it in a G+ community as a form of protest to unjust Google censorship.

 

Below is the G+ form letter email that I received so unworthily.
