I’ve Been Silicon Valley Sharia’d

The Left's Long War on Conservative Free Speech
I've Been Silicon Valley Sharia'd

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Last week, the little birdies in Twitter's legal department notified me that one of my tweets from 2015 is “in violation of Pakistan law.” It seems like ancient history, but Islamic supremacists never forget — or forgive.

My innocuous tweet featured a compilation image of the 12 Muhammad cartoons published by Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in 2005. It also linked to my Jan. 8, 2015, syndicated column on the Charlie Hebdo jihad massacre in Paris. There's no hate, violence, profanity or pornography, just harmless drawings and peacefully expressed opinions about the Western media's futile attempts to appease the unappeasable enforcers of sharia law, which bans all insults of Islam.

The Twitter notice assured me that the company “has not taken any action on the reported content at this time,” yet advised me that I should “consult legal counsel about this matter” in response to complaints from unnamed “authorized entities.”

Don't worry, lawyer up? Gulp.

I'm used to getting threats directly from bloodthirsty cartoon jihadists. In 2006, I spearheaded a “Mohammed cartoons blogburst” in support of the Danish cartoonists at Jyllands-Posten. After posting all 12 of the drawings to educate the public about the publication's brave stand against Sharia-enforced self-censorship in the West, death and rape threats from radical Muslims around the world poured into my email inbox. Vengeful thugs based in Turkey and Germany called me a “whore” and “prostitute,” vowing “We will kill you” unless I deleted the pictures from my server. My website was targeted by jihadist hackers who launched a week of denial-of-service attacks.

Thirteen years later, however, who knew that using an American company's microblogging service from my secluded mountaintop in Colorado could get me in hot water with foreign Muslim stone-age goons 8,000 miles away still hung up on the cartoons.

Who knew Twitter would act as dutiful messenger pigeons for the oppressive anti-blasphemy police squad that sentences people to death for disparaging Islam.

Welcome to Silicon Valley sharia.

Over the past few months, several other prominent critics of Islamic extremism have received similar warning letters from Twitter's legal department, including Saudi-Canadian activist Ensaf Haidar, the wife of imprisoned Saudi blogger Raif Badawi; Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, an Iranian-born Muslim scholar and reform advocate from Australia; Jamie Glazov, a Russian-born Canadian columnist who just released a new book called “Jihadist Psychopath”; and Pamela Geller, an anti-jihad blogger and activist.

Jacob Engels, another conservative activist and blogger, was suspended from Twitter this weekend without explanation. His last tweet linked to video of a black Christian street preacher being arrested for “breaching the peace.” Engels opined that the scene depicted “America's future thanks to (Rep. Ilhan Omar). Roaming rape gangs … cops do nothing. Massive terrorist attacks.”

There's no violence, hate, profanity or pornography, just an informed opinion about the consequences of open borders and capitulation to Islamic extremism. So why was Engels censored for condemning violent Muslims? Jack Morrissey, the Disney film producer who publicly called for the falsely accused Covington Catholic high school students to be fed into a woodchipper “screaming, hats first,” was allowed to retain his verified Twitter status without any punishment for his bloody death wishes.

This is all of a piece. As I reported in December, citizen journalist Laura Loomer was banned from Twitter for stating true facts about radical Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar's embrace of sharia laws that threaten gays, Jews and women. Loomer has since been deplatformed from PayPal and just learned she can no longer sell T-shirts protesting Twitter's ban with the hashtag #StopTheBias on Teespring.

Paypal's CEO admitted this week that he relied on the Southern Poverty Law Center's powerful smear machine for input on which conservatives to blacklist in order to uphold the company's alleged values of “diversity and inclusion.” SPLC's de-Paypal'd victims include Tommy Robinson, an English anti-jihad activist; VDARE, a nationalist immigration news and commentary site that publishes my syndicated column; and Gavin McInnes, a humorist, social critic and media entrepreneur whose fans have raised nearly $140,000 at DefendGavin.com for his powerful defamation lawsuit against the SPLC. McInnes was also de-Twittered and temporarily de-YouTube'd.

Among others targeted by SPLC, which collaborates with credit card companies and banks to silence influential thinkers and activists on the right: David Horowitz, a venerable scholar and investigative author who successfully beat back Mastercard's attempt to drop him over his organization's opposition to Islamic radicalism and illegal immigration, and the Center for Immigration Studies, which is suing the SPLC for labeling its mainstream think tank a “hate group.”

Deplatforming dissenting voices is a ruthless, bizarre and unprogressive way to achieve “diversity and inclusion.” So is conspiring with repressive regimes that are hell-bent on destroying the West. Twitter has become America's version of Islam's morality police — the dreaded “mutaween.”

I will not. As an American citizen who is subject to America's laws — not Pakistan's or Mohammed's — I'll retweet my harmless little Mo cartoons to my 2.1 million followers every day from now on and stand with other targets on the side of free speech and free thought. How about you, Twitter?

You are a brave and astute young lady. Thank you for all you do to support our freedom, as there are increasingly those who wish to take it away.

Good Job Michelle! Twitter is a leftist media outfit and they certainly play the part. There are getting to be more and more muzzies in this country and they are infiltrating all our basic governing positions with the intention to overtake us and invoke sharia law. Some places here already recognize that crap. Send them all back to the sand dunes and leave us alone.

This woman Michelle has more balls than any of the girlyboy “males” stuffed into their suits and swallowing their daily soylent green along with their K cup Latté in Silly Con Valley. Pam Geller and Clareece Feldman are two more.

AGREED! The mohammadan CULT called islam with its “sharia law” MUST NOT be accepted or used in ANY court or organization in America.
GOOD FOR YOU MICHELLE! KEEP UP THE GOOD FIGHT.

The Constitution is THE LAW OF THE LAND! Not islamic law!!! If they want to use islamic law then GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM or if you are a so-called American dishing out this nonsense, you need to relinquish your citizenship and move to a country where islamic law rules. Happy Trails…… This is the DANGER we’re facing. We have muslims in the House and at local levels. This is there AGENDA – populate with enough muslims where they live (Dearborn, MI & Minnesota), enter politics, keep moving up the chain so that sharia law becomes THE LAW.… Read more »

Mark R, If you want cowards there are better places to recruit than this site.
Besides, time for “spread the word” us passing. The actions of the Left and religious fanatics need to stop.

Stop, is the word to spread to be used by us to speak at the rights violators. I mean speak “at” not “to” or “with” them. They do not hear what we say or want others to. We do need to plan among ourselves what our next response will be when they do not stop.

You obviously did not understand my post. I am not here recruiting cowards. How you got that idea I am not sure.
My comment was about cowards who talk a lot but take no action. I wasn’t implying they are here. Whether or not they are I was making a challenge for those here to take a specific action against Rashid Tlaib and oust her.

I find it exceedingly strange that here in America, it is a perfectly acceptable practice – supported by the Law – to kill a baby right AFTER it has been born; yet, unacceptable to some illiterate camel-rider off on a distant rock pile uninhabited by man to utter a word defining Islam as the hate “religion” it actually is. Muslims must be awfully thin-skinned to defend their ancient pedophile religious leader (married a girl of 6; raped her at 9); yet think nothing of performing female genital mutilation on a young, innocent virgin. I’d say they are SICK in the… Read more »

Isn’t it obvious by now that the tech companies are out to do the same violence and Muslim glorification, and the same censorship of any opposing views, that they did to television? And, in the end, they will destroy the web, just as they destroyed television and movies? Remember, all that is needed for evil to triumph is for good people to watch it happen… and do nothing.

all that is needed for evil to triumph is for good people to watch it happen… and do nothing. don’t buy of on this lie. In the face of evil, a GOOD man will NOT stand by and do nothing. He will take action against the evil, else he is evil himself. If you see a man stealing away a small girl to have his way with her, and you do nothing, YOU are an accomplice to the evil he perpetrates upon her and society. To stand by and watch it happen and not take action is to OWN the… Read more »
