Author and political commentator Michelle Malkin received a bizarre message from Twitter telling her to seek legal counsel for allegedly violating Pakistani law.
#SiliconValleySharia -ed. Here’s the notice Twitter’s legal dept sent me last week, warning me to get legal counsel because anti-blasphemy Muslim zealots complained that my Mohammed Cartoons tweet violates Pakistan’s laws,” Malkin said.

Malkin posted a photo of the email from the micro-blogging giant, which told her that a 2015 Tweet “is in violation of Pakistan law. The Tweet in question features cartoon drawings of the false Islamic prophet prophet Mohammed:

“My innocuous tweet featured a compilation image of the 12 Muhammad cartoons published by Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in 2005,” Malkin said in a post on her website. “It also linked to my Jan. 8, 2015, syndicated column on the Charlie Hebdo jihad massacre in Paris. There’s no hate, violence, profanity or pornography, just harmless drawings and peacefully expressed opinions about the Western media’s futile attempts to appease the unappeasable enforcers of sharia law, which bans all insults of Islam.”
Images of the prophet Mohammed are strictly prohibited by Islamic law, which is effectively the law of the land in Pakistan.
Malkin is not the first Twitter user to be threatened by the company for criticizing Islam.
“Over the past few months, several other prominent critics of Islamic extremism have received similar warning letters from Twitter’s legal department, including Saudi-Canadian activist Ensaf Haidar, the wife of imprisoned Saudi blogger Raif Badawi; Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, an Iranian-born Muslim scholar and reform advocate from Australia; Jamie Glazov, a Russian-born Canadian columnist who just released a new book called “Jihadist Psychopath”; and Pamela Geller, an anti-jihad blogger and activist,” Malkin said.
Big League Politics wrote about Geller’s warning letter here.
Big League Politics contributor and activist Laura Loomer was also suspiciously banned by the platform after criticism of Rep. Ilham Omar (D-Minn.), a practicing Muslim.
Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud of Saudi Arabia, a Sharia Law country, owns the second-largest share of the Silicon Valley titan. His share of the company is larger than that of Twitter’s co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey.
Malkin has refused to bend, despite Twitter’s bogus warning.
“As a US citizen subject to AMERICA’S laws—NOT Pakistan’s or Mohammed’s—I’ll now retweet my Mo cartoons & columns to 2.1 million followers every day & stand with free speech & free thought. How about you,
@Twitter @jack?” she said.

Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order
Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.
According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.
The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.
Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.
The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.
Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.
As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
