Today is #HolocaustRemembranceDay . But you might not know that unless you see it trending on Twitter.
Today we remember those who were killed during the Holocaust.
Israel began commemorations of Holocaust Remembrance Day on Wednesday evening with a ceremony to remember the six million Jews who were killed during the Holocaust.
When we look back on the Holocaust, we must remember that it didn’t begin with death camps. It began by list making, boycotts, and the marginalization and dehumanization of Jewish people in society.
The Holocaust began with bans of Jewish businesses. Financial blacklisting. Name calling. Labeling.
The Holocaust began with social and institutional acceptance of unchecked bigotry that was driven by both the state and the media, which served as the distributor for genocidal propaganda that the masses consumed.
The Holocaust is one of the worst atrocities in human history. And still today, many look back and wonder how something so evil could happen.
The answer is silence.
In the face of evil, many chose to look away and make excuses. People who otherwise could have voiced opposition to genocide chose to remain silent instead of speaking out.
The behaviors that led to the Holocaust are very similar to what is happening to Jews today. It’s very similar to what the radical Left and social media companies are doing to Conservatives today. Put simply, the radical Left which dominates and controls Silicon Valley is creating digital gulags for “wrong thinkers” and undesirables.
The left will continue to send Conservatives to digital gulags until they can once again put us in a real gulag. In a way, one could argue that conservatives are the new Jews, and they are experiencing a digital Shoah.
In fact, I warned about this in September during the Congressional hearings regarding social media when Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg testified in front of Congress. I confronted Dorsey on September 5, 2018 during the Twitter hearing regarding social media censorship when he lied to Congress and said Twitter doesn’t censor Conservatives. I made a personal plea to President Trump, and warned him that big tech would continue to censor and ban all of his supporters in an attempt to influence the midterm and Presidential elections.
As Americans, and as members of the global human race, we made a promise when we said Never Again.
But today, I’m not sure that Never Again really means anything. Today we see increased levels of Jew hatred. We have Jew haters in Congress who have ties to HAMAS and openly demonize Jews, and we have a Democrat Party that normalizes this vile anti-Semitism under the guise of “diversity” and “criticism of Israel”.
Today we have boycotts on Jews that are growing more common with the mainstream effort to normalize the pro-terror BDS movement. Social media companies are banning Jews and Conservatives like myself while they allow for Louis Farrakhan and designated Islamic terrorist organizations like HAMAS and the Muslim Brotherhood to incite hatred against Jews.
Companies like Facebook and Twitter claim to be against hate speech, and have banned Jews like myself and Yair Netanyahu, the son of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for posting facts about Jew hatred and terrorism, but it doesn’t take much to see these companies just purely hate Jews.
The Holocaust happened only 74 years ago. It could easily happen again… especially if the Jews don’t wake up and stop voting Democrat. The Jews must make a choice. Will they stay silent? Or will they speak up?
In 2018, according to FBI statistics, hate crimes against Jews increased by 37% in 2018.
To put things into perspective, there’s only 15 million Jews left on the planet.
There’s 1.3 billion Muslims.
Despite the fact that Jewish people are the true minority, their rights have been over shaddowed and hijacked by those on the Left who spew the false narrative that Muslims are the minority.
You do the math. The numbers aren’t good.
I was permanently banned from Twitter for life on November 21, 2018, and then I was banned for 30 days from Facebook less than 24 hours later.
What was my offense?
Did I spew hateful, violent rhetoric towards anyone as we frequently see leftist celebrities and politicians do online?
Did I post racist comments or call for genocide against a group of people?
Did I incite a riot or call for the President to be assassinated, like Leftists often do on Twitter?
I merely shared a fact. Yes, the truth can now get you banned for life from the Internet, in America, the land of the free, and the only country with a First Amendment right.
The tweet that Twitter decided to ban me for was a tweet full of facts about Sharia law. It was a tweet directed at Ilhan Omar, a newly elected Congresswoman, a politician, a public figure, which pointed out that her support of Sharia law does not make her an ally for gay people, women, or Jews, as Twitter would like you to believe.
This is the tweet that earned me a lifetime ban. Is this “hateful conduct,” as Twitter accused me of practicing?
As a journalist, I always ask questions and seek the truth. As an American, I have been granted free speech protections under the First Amendment to express myself as a citizen; and member of the press.
I want to know why Ilhan Omar supports brutal and un-American things like Sharia, which supports female genital mutilation, the killing of homosexuals, and abuse and oppression of women. I want to know why she hates Israel and why she makes so many anti-Jewish statements. I want to know why she refused to condemn HAMAS, which is a designated Islamic terrorist organization. All of these behaviors are supported in Islam and enforced under Sharia law, which is Islamic law.
In response to my Twitter ban and Silicon Valley Sharia, I handcuffed myself to Twitter HQ in NYC on November 29, 2018. While handcuffed, I wore a yellow Juden star, identical to those worn by Jews in the time leading up to the Holocaust. Just like the Nazis made lists of political dissidents who they marked and banned with yellow stars, Twitter, Facebook, and Google are modern day techno-fascists in the way they are silencing Conservatives, Jews, and Christians who dare speak truth about radical Islam and terrorism.
During my protest, while I held a sign that read “Jew hatred, A-Ok! Nosey Jew? BANNED” at Twitter, I said,
“Twitter, Facebook, Apple, Google, Instagram, they are essentially upholding Sharia. Silicon Valley is essentially upholding Sharia when they decide to ban me for posting facts about Islam, when they decide to ban me for posting facts about Sharia law and criticizing an anti-Jewish Muslim Congresswoman.”
Twitter, Facebook, and Google have some serious explaining to do regarding their “terms of service.” As I mentioned following my Twitter and Facebook bans, the Left-wing and Islamic bias displayed by these social media companies is overbearingly obvious.
Less than 24 hours after I was banned by Twitter, I was banned by Facebook for 30 days. Not only did Facebook not give me a reason for my 30 day ban, but they clearly coordinated the ban with Twitter in an act of big tech collusion to silence me, a Conservative Jewish journalist.
How is it that a Jewish Conservative journalist and the Israeli Prime Minister’s son get banned on social media for posting facts about Islam, but Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, Louis Farrakhan, and Iranian dictators who chant “death to Israel” and “death to America” all have verified Facebook and Twitter accounts?
Through their pro-Sharia terms of service, Facebook and Twitter are clearly signaling that it’s ok to be a terrorist, but not ok to be a Conservative, or a Jew.
Here is more supporting evidence that big tech social media companies are anti-Jewish:
In July 2018, Mark Zuckerberg sparked outrage when he said he didn’t see a reason to ban Holocaust deniers on Facebook. Meanwhile, he finds it very necessary to ban Conservatives and Jews.
In October 2018, Twitter released a statement saying it was not a violation of their terms of service when Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, called Jews termites. Twitter said they would not ban Farrakhan, even though he has called for Jews to be eradicated and publicly proclaimed “Hitler was a great man”.
In November 2018, Twitter was forced to apologize after they allowed for #KillAllJews to trend for several hours.
In November 2018, Airbnb withdrew listings of Israeli homes in Judea and Samaria, in an attempt to side with the Palestinians and BDS movement.
You get the point.
When I was banned on Twitter, many on the Left justified my ban by calling me a “Nazi” and a “white supremacist”, despite the fact that I am a Zionist Jew. These are the same justifications given when I am further banned. As of date, I have been banned by Twitter, Uber, Uber Eats, Lyft, Venmo, GoFundMe, PayPal, Medium, TeeSpring, and in February, Chase bank temporarily shut down my access to my online banking and canceled my debit card.
Many tell me I should just “get over” the fact that I am banned from Twitter. Many more have mocked me for taking what they call “extreme measures” to get my Twitter account back. But, being banned from Twitter isn’t even the half of it. Since being de-platformed and financially blacklisted, I have lost 90% of my income and have been completely defamed.
I am a fierce advocate for Israel and the Jewish people, and yet when I go outside, people know me as “that Nazi bitch banned on Twitter”.
However, a quick observation of the behavior of the average employee in Silicon Valley will reveal that they will happily endorse de-platforming and excommunicating “wrong thinkers” to digital gulags controlled by Marxists and jihadists in Silicon Valley. They call me a Nazi, but their behavior proves they are in fact the Nazis. Their behavior is fascism, which makes leftists in Silicon Valley classic projectors.
Last night I continued my protest and went to Jack Dorsey’s house in San Francisco where I used a projector and projected the names of every prominent conservative and one liberal banned from Twitter onto a wall at his $10 Million house. Jack Dorsey told members of the US Congress that Twitter is a public square, and he told Joe Rogan that social media is a human right. Thus, by banning me and many other conservatives, Jack Dorsey is preventing me from existing and communicating in the digital public square, and he is committing human rights violations against Conservatives.
Jack Dorsey won’t let me post on my Twitter wall. So I made his wall at his house my very own social media wall. Jack Dorsey told Rolling Stone Magazine that he “loves activism and protest”, so I took the protest to his front door. Jack Dorsey won’t let me tweet, so I posted my would be tweets on his house in real time.
I ended my protest at Jack Dorsey’s house at midnight, marking Holocaust Remembrance Day on May 1, 2019. Jack Dorsey’s neighbors didn’t like the sound of the loud projector. And Jack Dorsey himself didn’t enjoy the protest, because before midnight struck, the account and livestream on which my protest was being streamed were both banned. With the click of a button, the world was cut off from my #StopTheBias protest in which I was fighting for an end to censorship and social media bias of conservatives.
And at midnight, with the turn of a switch on a projector and generator, once again, there was darkness and silence.
Last week I filed a lawsuit in a Florida court for harm caused bymy November 2018 ban from the social media platform Twitter.
As reported in the Wall Street Journal, my ban came at the instigation of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and was carried out shortly after CAIR’s meeting with Twitter executives.
