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.

Twitter Suspending Bloomberg Bots for Coordinated Fake Engagement
The Bloomberg campaign is taking a page from the strategy of supposed Russian bots.
Twitter began suspending more than 70 pro-Michael Bloomberg accounts from its platform on Friday, citing supposed inauthentic and coordinated behavior.
The platform was alerted to the suspicious behavior by the Los Angeles Times, and shortly after began suspending the accounts.
The reports of the Bloomberg bots are reminiscent of the claims of Russian bots waging influence campaigns in U.S elections. Both operations apparently involve scripted messaging, fake political engagement, and platform manipulation.
Evidence of identical messaging being spread by dubious pro-Bloomberg accounts was published by the Los Angeles Times in their report on the matter Friday.
A statement from Twitter on the suspensions confirmed the Bloomberg shill accounts violated the platform’s rules by “creating multiple accounts to post duplicative content” and “coordinating with or compensating others to engage in artificial engagement or amplification, even if the people involved use only one account.”
The accounts avoid direct connections to the Bloomberg campaign, in an attempt to avoid being identified as coordinated shill accounts.
Bloomberg is paying a considerable cohort of “deputy field organizers” $2,500 a month to shill for the New York oligarch on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. The messaging strategy is relatively unprecedented in American politics, offering cash directly for a constant stream of political messaging on personal social media accounts.
The Bloomberg campaign claims that paid deputy field organizers are required to identify their affiliation with the campaign in a statement regarding the suspensions. As Bloomberg’s online social media strategy copies a page from the book of supposed malicious Russian bots, high-ranking U.S intelligence community personnel are claiming that the Russian bots are active once again in attempts to promote the campaigns of both Bernie Sanders and President Donald Trump.
