Is criticism of radical Islam hate speech? 

As it prepares to work with a ‘Trust and Safety Council’ that critics allege will police content, Twitter’s own rules characterize criticism of religion as “hate speech”.

Earlier this week, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey announced the formation of the council under the Orwellian justification that “freedom of expression….starts with safety.”

Despite claiming the council comprises a “diversity of voices,” it does not include a single organization dedicated to defending free speech.

The Council does include Feminist Frequency’s Anita Sarkeesian, who gave a speech in front of a UN panel last year during which she characterized criticism of feminism as hate speech, arguing that calling a feminist a “liar” is a form of “harassment”.

However, Twitter’s own rules already state that “advocacy” against protected groups will not be tolerated on the social media platform.

Twitter’s policy on “Hate content, sensitive topics, and violence” includes “advocacy” against someone’s “religion” in the same context as “hate speech,” meaning that legitimate criticism of the religion of Islam could be censored.

The policy is primarily aimed at ad content, but states that the same rules apply to, “tweets, trends and accounts.”

Given that Twitter’s second biggest shareholder is none other than Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, concerns are growing that negative commentary about Islam could be stifled. In Saudi Arabia, draconian blasphemy laws mandate torture and execution for critics of Sunni Islam.

Twitter is a private company and it can censor who it likes, but in taking steps to silence conservatives simply to curry favor with perpetually outraged social justice warriors, the social media giant is taking a firm stance against free speech.

The company’s lurch towards censorship has also coincided with a collapse in its stock price, with Twitter losing half of its value in the last three months. For the first time ever, Twitter also lost active users in the last quarter, dropping from 305 million to 303 million.

Censorship is not popular, but Twitter appears to have taken a course which could eventually lead to its own implosion.

So....uh....hmmm.....would that make THIS hate speech?

Anything NOT Islam related and Homo related is now called "hate speech" that includes the Holy Bible !! That is what these demons now have set up. Anything that does not support the DC den of devils is now called "hate speech" including any negative talk about the monster in the DC Rainbow House. He demands to be treated as a god !

But I'm like you - I speak my mind and too bad who does not like  it.  Use the 1st amendment or totally lose it. WE are suppose to rub it into DC's face. That is what we have it for ! To keep them in line.

AMEN!

ALL Muslims are "radical" Muslims - - some are just in the holding stage (sleepers)  for the mission that they WILL do once they are given "the call". These sleepers are all over and could be your neighbor because their mission is to blend in and APPEAR to be one of us, so no one suspects them. ALL Muslims abide by the same book - the same Qur'an and they have it in Arabic that has the true meanings of the "softened" words of the English versions.

There have been many "good fiends" living next to Jewish families for years, pretending to be a so-called "moderate" as to lessen the suspicion of their true presence there and will PRETEND to be the Jewish (or American) family's "best friend".  IF you "know thy enemy"  as God tells us to, you know there is no such thing as  a Muslim befriending a non-Muslim for real - it's against their law.  But they WILL PRETEND at it. It is part of their mission. There have been Muslim "best friend" neighbors many times to Jews, but once they get "the call" to incorporate their final stage of their mission, that "best Muslim friend" will barge into your door and kill everything alive there including any infants or pets. And they will do it as if you were a total stranger and have no conscience about it at all !  Those 15+ years you thought you could trust "your best friends" next door, totally evaporates in a  moment.

The reason they PRETEND to befriend you is to get your trust and  to keep you passive toward them so you are not on your guard for when the time comes for that call and final stage - this procedure makes you easy prey.  And it works every time.  Forget all the family outings and picnics you had with your "best friends" and all the times you car pooled or had each other over for dinner or baby-sat your kids and you their's - all gone in a flash once they get "the call" !

And remember lying is part of the Islamic agenda and mission, so you cannot believe them if they say (and they usually do) that they are not "active Muslims". Or say they are "Muslims in name only".  There is no such thing in Islam - you either are or are not. Muslim is a person who follows the Islam law and Qur'an - if you do not, you are NOT  Muslim.  "Muslim" is not a race or nationality - it's a cult term of "surrender" to the Islamic system.  A Muslim is a member of the political cult of Islam.   It's like if your kid is a Boy Scout, he is a member of that club - but he is still the nationality he was  whether it be Italian, American, Spanish, Irish, etc  Those are nationalities.  Muslim is just a MEMBERSHIP into the Islamic cult.  There ae also Irish Muslims, German Muslims, Arab Muslims,  etc. - you get the point.

I've studied Islam and their ways and beliefs and actions and operations and did it under a former jihadist teacher who's job was to train jihadists, and he is now a Christian and teaching how to never trust or believe anything a Muslim says - they are trained to lie and deceive from infancy, which is how they get into high govt positions to take over a country. They are masters of lies just like their father the devil. They will ACT as your best pal - because it is part of their mission as a sleeper. But NEVER trust them.

Remember killing is how they "worship their mythical  moon god allah". They literally must kill their way to their believed 'paradise'.  Islam is a death cult and it will never change. So forget trying that path. God told us in Gen 16:12 that that Ishmael line will be uncontrollable wild enemies of all nations to the very end of time when Jesus returns and drives them all out into the pit along with the Anti-Christ.

Until then - stay clear of them because you will never change Islam, the only hope is to get a few to convert to Christianity and the true one God. But only the Holy Spirit can call them to repentance, all you can do is tell them about OUR Jesus the SAVIOR.  The Jesus they speak of is NOT the same Jesus of Christianity. 

Everything of Islam and Christianity is totally OPPOSITE from each other - so never believe in this new age movement of Chrislam. It is blasphemy and evil to the core.

==========================================================

He will be a wild ass of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."

Everything is of God or satan. That is all there is and it is everything.

No it is not. We have freedom of speech in America. If the muslims don't like it leave.l

It's freedom of speech. It's also the truth about them. Europe can not even verbally defend themselves, that's what this anti American administration wants to impose here.

Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

Proof! politically correct progressive liberalism is a mental disorder! Fact! islam and, sharia law are anti-American! This POS in his rainbow house knows it! The American economy is about to fall off the cliff, and yet, this arrogant f_ _ _ing 1st family go on vacations, spending hundreds of millions of tax payers money, and rubbing it in our faces! Not to sound prejudice but; my experience over the years, with most, not all, black politicians who replace a corrupt white person in office; ends up being more corrupt than the former! This includes mayors, city councilors, school committee members, governors, and now we have this POS in the rainbow house!

I am happy to live in harmony with any person who wants to live in harmony with me. Enough said.

Intelligence is commensurate with the job description.

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
