[Editors note – Please share widely on your social media channels. We must not accept this relentless campaign to shut down our free speech by uniformly craven left wing corporate managers. We must demand actions – Pamela Geller]
Twitter just suspended my account this morning, on the first day of the New Year, 2018, with no specific reason given to me besides their claim that I violated their rules for “hateful conduct”. I have been on twitter for a number of years, and I was able to earn the following of 13, 500 people. I really enjoy the platform and the interaction I get on it, outside of the death threats, which I’ve received over the years on Twitter, but which Twitter didn’t always deem objectionable, after I reported them. There are at least two individuals who’ve threatened me on Twitter who still have active Twitter accounts.
I often tweeted about my comic book work, about Free Speech, against overbearing governments, but mainly against the Islamic enemy who is motivated by Islam. For too many people today, stating that fact, that this monstrous enemy embodies “one of the world’s great religions”, “the religion of peace”, is considered “hate speech”, when it’s simply the truth, or true speech. Since Twitter didn’t give me a specific example of what they claimed to be my “hateful conduct”, I think it’s simply the fact that writing Honestly about Islam means that one will inevitably insult and condemn Islam, because to write honestly about Islam is to write about unspeakable things, and things that the social media masters do not want to hear.
If I’m never to be reinstated on Twitter, I think my final tweet says it all, with my anti-Jihad superhero, Pigman, holding up The First Amendment, with my accompanying text: The three most important issues of our time are Free Speech, Free Speech and Free Speech. Only by saying what needs to be said can we do what needs to be done.
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.
