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 WordPress.com 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.

Former Google, Amazon Operative Slated to Lead Biden DOJ Antitrust Division
Putting the fox in charge of the hen house.
The Biden administration is actively considering a career operative of Google and Amazon to lead the Department of Justice antitrust division, The Intercept reported on Friday.
Renata Hesse previously worked in the DOJ’s Antitrust Division during the Obama administration.
Renata Hesse has led the Antitrust Division before so this is Biden's signal to the left that he loves recycling. Hesse has also worked for Google, Amazon, and has a long history as a Silicon Valley lawyer focused on IP law, satisfying the oligarchs. Balance. Build back better.
— Edward Ongweso Jr (@bigblackjacobin) January 15, 2021
Hesse advertises working with Amazon as an attorney to help the megacorporation avoid liability for trust monopoly action.
Hesse acted as counsel for Google during 2018 Federal Trade Commission hearings, arguing that Google maintains its monopoly share of the market for search engine queries on the basis of its product alone. Hesse ignored Google’s anti-competitive practices, such as shutting out competitors from search results.
Hesse would presumably oversee the DOJ’s Antitrust Division as it proceeds with historic antitrust litigation against Google. The corporate attorney would presumably be pressured to recuse from the case, unless she’s determined to deliver a favorable outcome for her former clients regardless of existing antitrust law.
At least one other lawyer who has litigated cases against Facebook and Google is under consideration for the Antitrust division.
Jonathan Kanter, a plaintiff's lawyer who helped design the cases against Google and Facebook, remains "in the mix" for the same job, sources indicate.

The Antitrust Division of the DOJ is intended to hold America’s most powerful and unaccountable corporations responsible. Hesse has actively fought against such outcomes for years as a Silicon Valley-aligned attorney. Her appointment as antitrust attorney of the DOJ would indicate that Biden intends to pursue a union of the federal government with Big Tech and America’s most powerful oligarchs.
