A soldier was just beheaded on the street, and they say I’m a terrorist threat.
It is worth noting that in all this media coverage of the banning of Spencer and me, not one media outlet had me on to discuss it. Not one. If what I say is so egregious, why not expose me? Because the last thing that the enemedia wants is for people to hear what I have to say. Because most rational, freedom-loving people would agree.Channel 4 contacted me for an interview and then canceled shortly thereafter.
Further, not once in all of the media accounts were we identified accurately. We oppose jihad. We are counter jihad. Despite all the column inches, not once is that even mentioned. We are not anti-Muslim. We oppose an ideology that calls for holy war, misogyny, persecution and oppression of non-believers. I don’t care who or what you worship. You can worship a stone, just don’t stone me with it. This is very clear. But the media’s twisted and colorful descriptions of us include “anti-Muslim,” “anti-Islam,” “anti-Ground Zero mosque campaigners,” “right wing activists,” “hatemongers,” “islamophobic bloggers,” “anti-Muslim pair.”
Repeat after me: C O U N T E R J I H A D.
And yet the fascists who oppose freedom and seek to destroy our very way of life are fawned over. The vicious Goebbels-inspired cogs in a hate machine that manufactures smears and libel and destroys the names and reputations of good, decent people are showered with descriptions like “anti-race hate group,” “anti-fascist” (by the venerable NY Times, no less) “anti-extremist,” and given reams of column inches. Their nefarious ties and terror-linked connections are never mentioned. It is Orwellian and worse, evil, because they are clearly racist and fascist and extreme. Facts are irrelevant in pursuit of their vicious agenda.
There was an occasion or two where Robert Spencer was contacted. Here is what the media (the AP, no less) did with his interview: AP tells a tiny part of the story
I point this out so that people can see how the media manipulates and manufactures a narrative completely at odds with freedom, individual rights and reason. Be on guard: the war in the information battle space is raging.
