Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum is a target of the new censorship

Rob ShimshockRebel Contributor

Daniel Pipes, president of the Middle East Forum (MEF), talked with Rob Shimshock of Campus Unmasked about censorship after hosting a panel entitled “Silenced! Censoring Public Discussion of Islam.”

“The whole idea is that if you have the wrong views, if you’re conservative, if you’re concerned about Islamism, then you can’t do business,” Pipes told Shimshock. “And in the middle of our event, three people disrupted and tried to deplatform us while we’re talking about deplatforming.”

The MEF president said that each panelist had experienced deplatforming in the past, noting that former Rebel commentator Tommy Robinson got kicked off of Paypal, and Rebel Commander Ezra Levant had a cruise cancelled due to activist pressure.

Pipes claimed that a British Internet service provider (ISP) required visitors to Pipes’ website to enter their credit card number to confirm that they were over the age of 18. The MEF president suggested that this cut off traffic to his website, but that the issue was resolved after protesting:

“We keep reading about hotel chains, about banks and the like that simply are shutting people out without explanation, without any recourse, and we worry about our ability to do business.”

Andrew Mirlach great comparison but lost on the useful idiots who will only accept censorship.

There is a sickness, called Socialism, that has found it’s way into the minds of the people, sown by a sick organization known as Educational System. Stopping it will be very difficult for it is in the minds of three generations of human beings. Should we decide to ignore this world wide plague, then civilization will end.

The choice is ours.

I can recall watching a Theoretical Physicist discussing the search for the Higgs particle. He said if it was indeed proven to exist, the theory he worked on for most of his career would be disproven.

He was not calling for proponents of the competing Higgs Boson hypothesis to be censored or silenced (like in cLIEmate UNscience). Quite the opposite, he was positively giddy with excitement that if his life’s work was shown to be a scientific dead end, that science and understanding of reality would have advanced.

Those who want to censor debate know it will expose their lies.
