Pamela Geller: Silicon Valley's war on free speech

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday's show, Pamela Geller and I discussed the silencing of conservatives by private corporations

Conservatives have had their YouTube videos demonetized, PayPal accounts terminated, and their social media profiles banned.

Pamela explained how this is part of a larger left wing attempt to crush the First Amendment.

The Rebel has also been victim to these attacks:

Our DNS servers were shut down without warning, rendering our website inaccessible to certain parts of the world.

All of this has ramped up in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, which the left has been exploiting to silence their opponents.

WATCH to see why the left is referring to Charlottesville as the "Reichstag moment", and how they are creating a "Nazi boogeyman."

“The point of the statement was for you to answer re: ISIS & whether you also consider this Islamic branch of the Umma to be terrorists. You skirted as is your tendency, therefore, the post I had planned was scrapped!”

I pointed out that fundamentalists exist in all religions and you are biased.

Thanks for confirming that racism, conservatism, and low IQ go hand in hand.

Ayan Ray who gives a damn if one case fits your comment, i can think of many examples where they did nothing. And none of use are stopping any free speech.

“Sorry Ayan, you didn’t grasp my question. Nothing new.”

Embarrassed because I pointed out the truth?

“Isn’t it strange that a person doesn’t recognize the fact that ISIS has been declared a terrorist group by our government!? What’s up with that Ayan!?”

So you acknowledge there are limits to free speech and that you are a hypocrite?

Ezra Levant and the like won’t tell you what Kevin Johnston said in one of his Freedom Report videos:

“It is time for us to take our masculinity back and beat the living hell out of these [Muslims]. Pin them down on the ground, and beat them until they pass out. And when they’re passed out, you beat them further; and when they’re on the ground passed out, kick them, break a kneecap, break an elbow, press their hands backwards turn their wrists sideways, start breaking these guys down.”

Johnston was recently charged under Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code because he is promoting hatred and advocating violence, NOT because he is criticizing Islam.

“Your lies about Israel promote violence against the country.”

I am simply pointing out the truth, unlike Ezra Levant and the like.

“Politically, Christians agree with Muslims in saying Israel cannot be a democracy and a Jewish state at the same time. About seven-in-ten Christians (72%) and 63% of Muslims take this view. Israeli Christians have political views similar to those of their fellow Arabs on several other issues as well. For example, majorities of Christians (80%) and Muslims (72%) say the Israeli government is not making a sincere effort to achieve a peace agreement with the Palestinians, and most Christians (79%) and Muslims (61%) in Israel also say the continued building of Jewish settlements in the West Bank hurts Israel’s security. And Israeli Christians (86%) and Muslims (75%) both overwhelmingly say the U.S. is too supportive of Israel.”

“Ayan Ray the map has changed in other ways as well. The land was taken by force , they got it back. What part of that don’t you get? They were there long before Muhammed was born.”

Then should not Canada, the US, Australia and New Zealand be given back to the indigenous peoples?

Thanks for confirming that racism, conservatism, and low IQ go hand in hand.

“Ayan Ray sorry but who are you to decide who should be silenced?”

I simply stated my opinion. If you learn to read, you will realize that the court agrees with me.

“In the 1990 case known as R v. Keegstra, the accused was a teacher who used his position to promote hatred of Jews. In that landmark hate-speech case, the Supreme Court of Canada noted that Section 319 of the Criminal Code, which prohibits willful promotion of hatred except in private conversation, does indeed violate freedom of expression rights. However, the Supreme Court also noted that this violation is justified because it is a reasonable limitation of that right. In Keegstra, the court ruled that on balance, the limitation was less harmful than the harm of the speech itself.”

Anyone who promotes violence should be silenced.

“Ayan Ray yes i support the right to have an Isis rally , if the people are not committing violence then they have a right to their opinion. I have already said this.”

So people rallying in support of Hitler is completely separate from Hitler killing Jews!

People who have a lot of Twitter followers are usually able to get their accounts restored. Jordan Peterson @jordanbpeterson who had his YouTube account shut down, sent a tweet to @joerogan who has 3.57 million Twitter followers as well as his own 194 thousand Twitter followers. Enough of them sent tweets to Google, complaining about it, that Dr Peterson’s account was back up again later the same day.

Same for Robert Spencer @jihadwatchRS who had his PayPal account closed recently. He let his 82 thousand Twitter followers know, they sent tweets to PayPal, some closed their PayPal accounts and Spencer’s account was restored shortly afterwards.

An obscure university statistician (sorry! I forget his name) had his YouTube account shut down on the weekend for reasons that were never revealed to him, except that he failed to comply with ‘community standards’ . He doesn’t use Twitter much so doesn’t have a lot of followers to help get his account restored. And still not understanding how he didn’t comply with community standards, he’s been told by Youtube that his appeal has been denied. At the same time, he was permanently shut out out of his gmail account where he has a lot of important data stored.

It’s the squeaky wheels with very noisy and active Twitter followers who have the best chance for survival in this war of ideologies.

“Ayan Ray yes and there have been rallies with ISIS supporters. And people have many different types of images with mass murderers like Che as well. Antifa rallies for communist lunacy and commies are far worse than ISIS.”

You did not answer my question.

Do you support the right of people to hold rallies to promote ISIS in Canada?

Pay Pal has just cut off Robert Spenser as well as Pamela. He was on Tucker Carlson the other night discussing what they did to him.

BTW- Ezra, as a lawyer you realize these on line monopolies are engaged in actions which breech the anti-trust laws and public content laws of a dozen nations. There is steam gathering for massive class action antitrust lawsuits in the US. When these commies shifted their political bigotry to operational mode in the public market they went criminal – capitalize on it.
commented 2017-08-27 11:28:25 -0400
The con-tech and com-tech monopolies are a part of the globalist klepto corporatist cabal – they wrap their intentions in a dozen cultural Marxist virtue posing crusades but their bottom line is to consolidate corporate power with global governing power – don’t be a dupe. It’s not about you or minorities or social justice, it never was – it’s about fascist economic models on a global scale the amalgamation of corporate and government power – essentially a global kleptocratic technological dictatorship.

Paul Joseph Watson has just opened an account on Bitchute. I think its time theRebel and other conservative news/opinion media join as well.

Is Trump the lamb being lead to slaughter ? You don’t have to go much further than Speaker Paul Ryan’s comments regarding Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Arpaio.
What a bunch of gutless whimps we have that claim to be right of centre but are actually just a bunch of leftists.
