What kind of calculations go into such a prestigious designation? Laughingly, the enemedia calls the trolls at the sharia police group Hope Not Hate researchers.
Of note, this is the only publication to mention that I have been the target of multiple Islamic assassination plots.
This kind of wholesale smear is detailed in my book FATWA: Hunted in America. This is what happens to every freedom-loving human being, in small and large ways, who stands against jihad terror and in defense of freedom.
The claims in this article are just the opposite of reality. Newspapers such as the Guardian, International Business Times, the New York Times, et al would be out of business without the artificial stimulus provided by Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms, which links to them in their newsfeeds and trending topics. They literally get hundreds of thousands of referrals everyday. Mind you, if you search this Guardian article on Twitter, it has already been tweeted by bot accounts over 2 dozen times. There are over 48 million bots on Twitter. Twitter features them in their trending hashtags. My Twitter account, on the other hand, is shadowbanned.
My site, by contrast, is never ever given linkage by any of these social media giants. Whatever influence I have is due to the daily sweat of my brow. They have done everything in their power to shut me down — Facebook, Google search, Google Adsense, YouTube, and even Pinterest (!). My website and posts have been scrubbed from Google search. Fourteen years and over forty thousand posts, gone. Google Adsense has banned my account. Google is blacklisting and has admitted to working with alt-left smear groups to silence opposition. Facebook has blocked my news feed. I have been blocked from uploading videos to YouTube as punishment for a 2007 video on jihad (and YouTube demonetized all of my videos). PayPal suspended me until an outpouring of condemnation and outrage forced a reversal. And it’s not just me, it’s all criticism of jihad and sharia.
A controversial American blogger has been accused of being the internet’s most virulent Islamphobe by researchers.
Pamela Geller, 59, was named by not-for-profit Hope Not Hate as a major figure in a growing network of far-right social media influencers.
The writer, who produces anti-Islamic website The Geller Report, has an audience of two million social media followers. Geller has been banned from the UK owing to her outspoken attacks against Muslims.
Geller was instrumental in a organised protest against the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ in 2011. Geller said that the proposed Islamic Cultural Centre, situated just a few blocks from the 9/11 site, was akin to a monument built on a “conquered land”.
Geller is also the president of Stop Islamisation of America, a pro-Israel group that paid for a number of controversial advertisements on New York public transport which likened Muslims to “savages” and “jihadists.”
Meanwhile, researchers say they are concerned with a 117% increase in followers of right-wing, anti-Muslim Twitter profiles between March and November of this year.
Patrik Hermansson, for Hope not Hate, said: “The growth among Twitter accounts and websites spreading anti-Muslim hate is alarming. In such a key area of public interest, it is an indication of increased interest in these views and, as each account or site grows, more people are exposed to deeply prejudiced anti-Muslim views.”
Hope not Hate believes the reach of these far-right accounts is amplified by fake bots which automatically tweet posts by bloggers. The report suggests that Geller’s own account is magnified by 102 bots that are set up to retweet or auto-tweet her content, an allegation which she has strongly denied in a recent blog post.
Earlier this year three people were arrested in connection with a plot to behead the conservative blogger. David Wright and his conspirators are accused of distributing pro-Islamic State videos and threatening to kill Geller.
