Twitter’s just fine with terrorists but if you’re a pro-Israel activist, you can count on being censored

Friday, March 16, 2018 by

If you listen to the average Democratic Party supporter, President Donald J. Trump is the anti-Christ, the second incarnation of Hitler, Mao, Stalin, and Castro rolled into one, and the biggest authoritarian threat to freedom the world has ever known.

That’s if you listen to Democratic supporters. If you instead opt to use your own mind and judgment and actually look around at what’s happening, you’ll quickly conclude that Trump isn’t a threat to traditional American liberty and freedom, the Democratic Party and their supporters are.

If you’ve been reading us for a while, you know that our founder/editor, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has been subjected to insane levels of censorship by YouTube and Google. The former has deleted his video channel, eliminating more than 1,700 videos in the process; the latter targeted him and Natural News last year for censorship, removing the site’s tens of thousands of articles from the search giant’s algorithm. And for no reason other than political disagreement; Mike’s a freedom lover, not an Alt-Left Marxist authoritarian who wants to ban dissent.

He’s not alone, mind you. The National Sentinel, where I serve as editor-in-chief, has also been targeted. Where once we were getting decent referral traffic from Facebook and other social media, that has slowed to a trickle, even as our Facebook “likes” and “followers” soar. By the way, if you like our news coverage and want to ensure you never miss a story, just click here — don’t worry, it won’t cost you a thing.

Not to be outdone by Facebook, Google and YouTube, now Twitter is getting into the censorship business.

As reported by Frontpage Magazine’s David Greenfield, terrorist organizations — no, really — like Hamas, Hezbollah, the PFLP, FARC, the Communist Party of the Philippines and the Liberation Tigers of Temil Eelam are all on the U.S. government’s official list of terrorist organizations, and they all have Twitter accounts.

“So of course they all have Twitter accounts,” he wrote. (Related: #StandAgainstCensorship by taking action: 10 powerful things you can do NOW to take back your freedom from the “techno tyrants.”)

But so does Ramadan Shalah, who heads up the Palestinian Islamic Jihad — also sitting on the U.S. Government’s list of terrorist organizations. Greenfield notes further:

The PFLP has at least four Twitter accounts. (Both the PFLP and Jibril’s Assadist splinter group are listed. And both have their own Twitter accounts.) FARC also has multiple Twitter accounts. Timochenko, the FARC’s narcoterrorist boss, who was accused by the State Department of “the murder of hundreds of people who violated or interfered with the FARC’s cocaine policies”, is also on Twitter.

What’s more, none of these organizations are particularly subtle. Hamas’ account says, “Official Account: Hamas Movement,” that also states: “Hamas is a Palestinian movement that resists the Israeli Zionist occupation and aggression.”

Never mind that Israel, surrounded by enemies like this, is constantly forced to defend itself from near-daily attacks and terrorism. Include Iran proxy Hezbollah in that group, along with other organizations based in the region.

But do Jewish rights groups get the same clearance from Twitter? In a word, no.

Canary Mission, which is a Jewish activist group exposing anti-Semitism, recently had its account suspended once again before being reinstated.

Labour Antisemitism, a group that tracks bigotry by the UK’s Left-leaning Labour Party, had its account blocked for a profile picture of the Star of David that was worn by Jews who suffered under Nazi occupation, Greenfield wrote.

Jewish efforts to ferret out anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish bigotry will earn the ire of Twitter censors; being a group that advocates for the complete destruction of Israel (which is what Hitler stood for, as a reminder) — well, that’s okay.

Earlier this week Adams announced a new video-sharing enterprise called Real.Video that aims to circumvent YouTube’s censoring ways. That’s a great start.

In the meantime, bookmark Censored.news and check it several times throughout the day; don’t be denied the opportunity to be a fully-informed citizen.
