CENSORSHIP: WordPress De-Platforms Blog That Posted Statistics About Muslims

WordPress continues to censor blogs that it deems inappropriate.

Published

A blog that posted statistics about Muslims has been squashed from WordPress in an apparent effort to censor information that might portray the “religion of peace” in a negative light.

The site, called muslimstatistics.wordpress.com was suspended for an alleged terms of service violation:

One of the pieces from the website, archived here, shows that the content was in no way malicious. Rather, it was factual.

“USA: Muslim ‘refugees’ – 91.4% on food stamps, 68.3% on Cash Welfare,” said the headline of a post from 2015.

To prove its claim, the site used a chart from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) – a federal government entity:

The post then simply explained the chart:

The statistics in the chart are provided by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  The ORR figures defined refugees from the “Middle East” as being from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, and Yemen.

During the time period referenced in the chart (FY2008 to FY2013), the United States admitted 115,617 refugees from the Middle East and granted asylum to another 10,026.  Also during this 5-year time frame, according to the Department of Homeland Security, the United States granted permanent admission to a total of 308,805 individuals from these same 10 Middle Eastern countries (designated as refugee-sending nations) through the issuance of green cards.

These government statistics were apparently too inflammatory for WordPress, who decided to censor the blog.

WordPress recently took down another blog, Creeping Sharia, that chronicled the misdeeds of Muslims in the West.

Big League Politics reported:

A blog that chronicled the rise of Sharia in the West and the persecution of Christians worldwide was told abruptly by WordPress Monday that its content was no longer welcome on the platform.

In an automated message, Creeping Sharia was informed that it had violated WordPress’ terms of service, and that it was no longer welcome to use the platform. The message said:

Upon review of your  site we have determined that your content does not align with our Terms of Service or User Guidelines. As stated in our Terms, we may choose to stop providing service to an account at any time, for any reason, or none at all. As such, your site has been suspended and will not be returned.

Creeping Sharia’s apparent crime was reporting stories like Islamist terror attacks that killed Christians in Nigeria, or that Mohammad was the number one name for baby boys in Berlin, Germany in 2018.

The site describes itself on Twitter as “Documenting news on the threat of Islamic sharia law and jihad to freedoms in the U.S., and beyond.”

The topic of censorship by Big Tech is at the forefront of political discourse.

The purge of Creeping Sharia is the latest in a wave of de-platforming by large technology platforms.

EXPOSED: Big Tech’s Censorship Czars are Veteran Democratic Operatives, Section 230 Must Go!

The fix is in against conservative voices.

Published

The communications directors at many Big Tech entities – including Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat – have been revealed as veteran Democrat Party operatives.

Journalist Robby Starbuck made the troubling allegations in a social media post on Wednesday:

RIOTS: Who do you blame for the violence on America's streets?

Much of what is posted by Starbuck holds up to journalistic scrutiny. Twitter communications director Nick Pacillo once worked as a spokesman for Democrat vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris while she was California attorney general. It has been alleged that he continues to serve her in his privileged role with Twitter, as supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) believe the platform blocked donations for their preferred presidential candidate while he was running against Harris.

Meanwhile Andy Stone – who serves as Facebook’s Policy Communications Director – has been working in various capacities to assure Democrat victory for over a decade. He was celebrated for his career of service to the Democrats when he joined their House Majority PAC in 2012.

“We are thrilled to have Andy on board,” the political action committee’s executive director, Ali Lapp, said in a statement at the time. “Andy brings many assets to House Majority PAC — his understanding of the House, experience in California — one of our most important states in 2012 — and he knows firsthand what it’s like to be fighting for progressive principles and policies every day.”

“I am excited to join House Majority PAC,” Stone said about his servitude to the Democrat Party. “I look forward to working with this talented team to hold Republicans accountable for their extreme and out of touch policies — and to help win back the House.”

Laura Nichols, who works as vice president of communications for Snapchat, appears to have the longest record of paid Democrat advocacy, going back many decades.

Axios noted in their profile of Nichols that she worked as an adviser, strategist, and spokesperson for former House Leader Dick Gephardt for eight years. Gephardt was a Democrat lawmaker for 1977 to 2005, considered to be among the standard bearers of the party for a generation, running for the Democrat presidential nomination unsuccessfully in 1988 and 2004.

Additionally, she served as the SVP of communications and strategy at the Center for American Progress (CAP). The CAP is an organization that was founded by pizza-loving Hillary confidant John Podesta and forms the intellectual backbone for the Democrat Party.

Big League Politics has reported about how Big Tech is ramping up the Orwellian Nightmare as part of a coordinated left-wing conspiracy to influence the election results in November:

The social media giant Twitter is targeting Bitchute, the alternative video service that allows for content to be shared freely on the platform, with Draconian censorship…

This may have been done at the behest of ANTIFA-style organization, Hope Not Hate, which lobbies Big Tech to censor their political enemies.

“Major social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter should ban the sharing of Bitchute links on their platform, thereby significantly reducing the impact of this extreme and dangerous material,” Hope Not Hate wrote in their blog about Bitchute.

In addition to calling for Draconian censorship against Bitchute on social media platforms, they also call for Bitchute to be slapped with criminal repercussions for permitting free speech on their platform.

“Law enforcement investigate Bitchute for distribution of content that breaks British law, including terrorism legislation,” Hope Not Hate wrote. “The Government should introduce an Online Harms Bill that includes meaningful consequences for bespoke platforms such as Bitchute that host, promote or distribute terrorism, extremist and hateful content.”

Bitchute has grown in influence for hosting videos that have been driven off of major platforms. A viral video of front-line doctors urging for the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 was scrubbed from YouTube but can still be accessed on Bitchute.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act must be scrapped so Big Tech is no longer granted special privileges that allow them to maintain monopoly status while acting as a hostile partisan publisher.
