Hamas-tied CAIR has been calling for some time for BNI to be shut down because of comments. Wordpress (the blog platform) responded by shutting down BNI in late November and then reinstating it; now it has been shut down again, and the Hamas-linked nazi group CAIR is doing a victory dance. They're claiming credit, although details are sketchy: the BNI publisher says Wordpress hasn't given her any explanation for suspending the site, and that she has been monitoring comments closely since November 26, when the site was first shut down. This is how BNI's publisher explained what happened in an email to me:
I allowed them to delete ALL comments prior to 11/26 and they did. After that I was very careful to delete anything that could be deemed a threat. In CAIR's press release today they mentioned the comments from the other post all of which were deleted immediately. There were no new comments that they listed today. But....they did mention my close involvement with the All American Muslim/Lowe's Buycott campaign. I had about a 12 or 14 different posts on that so I think the ratings dive for AAM was what made them threaten WP with a lawsuit. I am just assuming as WP didn't say this.
That any rational freedom lover would listen to the enemies of free speech at Hamas-tied CAIR is beyond the pale. Across the web, I have seen calls for a holocaust II, killing Jews, killing conservatives, killing Blacks, etc. I have been called a neo-kikess while being libeled, smeared and defamed. And Hamas-tied CAIR itself is a libel machine.
Calls for my death and execution have been posted to youtube, twitter and other websites.
The death threats and calls for genocide are daily. Just recently there was this comment:
THIS BITCH SHOULD GET SHOT. I H8 HER
The blood libel against Israel organ trafficking in Haiti was started in the notoriously anti-Jewish Huffington Post comment section. Anti-semitism is raging in the pages of the NY Times, Time magazine, LA Times, etc. Nothing was ever said or done -- that's free speech.
I condemn all calls for killing and genocide.
I don't know what was said at Bare Naked Islam. Some of what I see I would not host or post on Atlas. But I don't CAIR. The difference between an exchange of ideas and an exchange of blows is self-evident.
If I had a blog on wordpress, I would pull it. I would. Because it's only a matter of time until something you say doesn't meet with the Muslim Brotherhood guidelines.
The fundamental principle of free speech is the protection of all speech, not just speech we like. Because who decides what’s good and what’s forbidden? The Hamas-tied thugs and enemies of free speech at CAIR?
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it -- Voltaire
