So the global jihad, choking on petrodollars, tried to shut down my little
spigot.

And wait, there’s more. Revolution Muslim, a group of jihadists in New York
who are open inciters to violence and Jewish genocide, had a Paypal button on
its website.

Got that? Oh, the irony. Nice work, Paypal.

It got better still: Paypal’s policy bans users from selling “items that
promote hate, violence, racial intolerance or thefinancial exploitation of a
crime.”

I am not selling anything. But look at this on eBay, which owns Paypal. One
eBayer is selling a series of dvd’s featuring lectures by the Imam Anwar al
Awlaki.

Remember al Awlaki? He is the imam to the worst of the jihadists of recent
years, including the 9/11 Muslim terrorists, the Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan,
the Times Square car bomber, the Christmas underwear bomber, the 7/7 London
bombers, the 7/21 London bombers, the leader of the transatlantic airline
bombers, and others.
 
But the jihad was apparently just fine with eBay
and Paypal, at least until enough Atlas readers complained.

Of course, Paypal and all businesses are free to conduct business with whom
they choose, and in what ever way they choose, within the bounds of the law,
letting the market decide. I believe in that as an absolute. I do not believe
for a moment that the government should step in and regulate or force a business
into doing bad business (i.e., as in the case of sub-prime mortgages).

But I also believe that it is in my power to call attention to bad business
practices and let the market decide. If Paypal was going to punish courageous
voices and free men while sanctioning evil, people had to know that before they
give their business over to such quisling companies.

After I announced Paypal’s action at Atlas Shrugs, I was overwhelmed by the
support and by all the people who have been writing to Paypal. The left lost
this one, but I am sure they'll try to silence me and other conservatives in
other ways. What they don’t know is that we have not yet begun to fight.

Read the whole thing. Send it around. Hate speech? It's love speech, baby.

The Truth Must be Told

Your contribution supports independent journalism

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.

Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.

Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.

Please contribute here.
