A few days ago I received this warning message from Twitter:

“Hi Gilad Atzmon,

Your account, @GiladAtzmon has been locked for violating the Twitter Rules. I was accused by this anti social network of “violating” their “rules against hateful conduct.”

The message took me by surprise as hatred is foreign to me. In fact, I dedicate a considerable amount of my energy to exposing the racism, racial supremacy and biological determinism that are found in many identitarian discourses.

Twitter wrote to me “You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”

Here is my 5 year old tweet that prompted action by twitter:

@GiladAtzmon

_What can Jews do about #Antisemitism? Simple– look in the mirror– introspect. #Palestine #Zionism #Israel #BDS

It seems that Twitter considers it ‘hateful’ to ask people to “look in the mirror”, to “introspect,” to consider the ‘remote’ possibility that maybe some of the Jewish State’s policies and practices may reflect badly on the Jews as a whole. I would like Twitter to explain to us how calling on people to “introspect” “promotes violence” or “threaten[s] or harass[es] people on the basis of race?”

Twitter must have known that I didn’t commit any ‘hateful speech’ and offered me the chance to erase my 5 year old tweet that no one except my devoted Zionist stalkers would notice and who managed to pinpoint four other ‘hateful’ statements by me.

Apparently sarcasm isn’t well received by Twitter’s moderators. They demanded that I also delete this 4 year old tweet:

@GiladAtzmon

I suggest instead of referring to the Swastika we just call it ‘Star of Adolf,’ it sounds friendly and it puts David’s in context…”

I accept that some Jews are upset by my dark cynicism, but considering the disastrous crimes that are committed by the country that decorates its tanks and airplanes with Stars of David, this is another call for Jews to introspect, to look in the mirror, to self-reflect. It by no means “promotes violence”, “threatens”, or “harasses” anyone. If anything it replicates the early Zionist insight which I agree with, that before anything else, Jews must first find their way to become ‘people like all other people.’

Twitter also asked me to remove this exchange with an ardent Zionist:

“@GiladAtzmon

@Saul_Freeman because the real holocaust is what you People do to Palestinians.”

I understand that I violated a tenet of the holocaust religion that no one is allowed to apply the H-word to any other people’s suffering. Certainly, no one is allowed to point at the slow genocide of the Palestinians.

I don’t intend to bore you with each statement Twitter finds hateful. It doesn’t take much to figure out that Twitter was subjected to a Zionist blitz aimed at silencing me. To some extent it was reassuring that my detractors couldn’t find a single remotely hateful statement in my entire Twitter oeuvre. And it was amusing to see how upset this caricature Zionist was to find out that my Twitter account was still active.

What is clear to a growing number of people, perhaps most Westerners, is that Twitter, like FB and Google are not what they initially promised to be. It took little time for these internet platforms to morph into authoritarian and draconian thought police. If there was an initial promise to emancipate us through the internet, it is gone, the internet giants have become the most rigid oppressive and totalitarian forces leading us into the next dark age.

The chutzpah, and I indeed deliberately use the Yiddish word in this context, exceeds former totalitarian oppressive measures. This time it is not our rulers, tyrants or monarchs who make us fearful of our own thoughts. It is not political parties who make us walk on our tiptoes. In 2020 Internet companies even suspend the activity of democratically elected leaders if they don’t fit with the Zuckerberg agenda or Twitter’s ‘progressive’ goals. In 2020 Zuckerberg and a few of Google’s directors decide what scientists are allowed to say about Covid 19. In August 2020 the internet giants claimed to know what eradicated Beirut before even the Pentagon or the Lebanese produced an explanation.

Once again I find myself reiterating that the Tyranny of Correctness is at the very heart of the Jerusalemite ethos. While Athens introduces us to philosophy, science, logos, beauty – Jerusalem, is considered the city of revelation, is all about obedience. In Jerusalem, we follow mitzvoth and commandments. In Jerusalem, ethics (the making of moral judgments) is replaced by rules that dictate an image of morality. Jerusalem decrees what we can say, Athens teaches us how to think for ourselves.

The USA was born as an Athenian realm. It was the Land of the Free, not because it has ever been free, but because it was inspired by the notion of freedom. Not much is left out of this aspiration. America, like Britain, France and other Western countries is now a Jerusalemite colony, its regime of correctness is defined by foreign sensitivities.

For the West to stop its rapid decline, it must – and right now, before it is too late, to reinstate its fidelity to the Athenian creed. If the West wants to survive, it must ensure that it isn’t a Zuckerberg, in whatever form, who defines the boundaries of the Covid-19 debate. It should not be Youtube that decides which doctors and scientists are kosher enough to deserve airtime.

ORDER IT NOW

For us to have a prospect of hope, Jerusalem must be reduced into its natural magnitude. The Zionists who are upset by such thoughts should bear in mind that Zionism succeeded in achieving its early objectives because its Zionist founders rejected Jerusalem. Their aim was to make Zion into an Athenian province. Their mission ultimately failed, but not before it inspired some Jews to believe in the possibility of a metamorphosis.

    Unfortunate title.

    When I saw it I thought ‘Great, Soros has finally stirred some powerful enemies prepared to provide a serious counter to his OSF’. – Oops!

    Otherwise spot on as always for Gilad.

  2. Gilad, if you’d asked the Muslims or Christians to look in the mirror, you might have avoided this particular accusation of ‘hate speech’. But seriously, when I was at school they consistently told me to ignore stuff they regard as hate speech today. It seems we are going (quite deliberately) backward.

    Hatred is not yours to feel, Gilad!! 😉 – it is for the one listening or reading to conceive of your words as envivid of hatred, and for them to stain you with their endrenched emotion!

    It is the push for introspection that is now seen as racism, sexism, faith-ism.

    It is ironic too, because a large fraction of modern Western society pulls somehow towards Hindu/Taoist spiritual norms – outside of the ‘God’ word – which demand introspection as a primary step!

    My only response is that the Western individual does not dig deep, and only searches for truth at the skin level, leaving the majority of their time for materialistic craving, so when pushed, they only really react against those that limit their materialism.

    Why does it have to be “genocide”? That’s just hyperbole. If you wrote “ethnic cleansing” in the sense that Israel wants to make life miserable for Palestinians in the hope that many will leave, you might have a very defensible point. But writing “genocide” and making those stupid Holocaust comparisons just makes you look like a monomaniacal moron. And stop whining so much about your alleged “persecution”, this narcissism is repellent.

  9. From David L. Hudson of the American Bar Association:

    https://www.americanbar.org/groups/crsj/publications/human_rights_magazine_home/the-ongoing-challenge-to-define-free-speech/in-the-age-of-socia-media-first-amendment/

    The First Amendment only limits governmental actors—federal, state, and local—but there are good reasons why this should be changed. Certain powerful private entities—particularly social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and others—can limit, control, and censor speech as much or more than governmental entities. A society that cares for the protection of free expression needs to recognize that the time has come to extend the reach of the First Amendment to cover these powerful, private entities that have ushered in a revolution in terms of communication capabilities.

    Hudson includes the following precedents for potential change:

    Already, some state high courts interpret free expression provisions in state constitutions to provide protection to individuals involving private actors. For example, a few states apply their free expression protections at privately owned shopping malls. The New Jersey Supreme Court has applied the free expression provision of its state constitution to allow individuals to challenge restrictive bylaw provisions of private homeowner associations. The state high court wrote: “In New Jersey, an individual’s affirmative right to speak freely is protected not only from abridgement by government, but also from unreasonably restrictive and oppressive conduct by private entities in certain situations.” (Mazdabrook Commons Homeowners Association v. Khan, 210 N.J. 482, 493 (2012).)

    It’s certainly possible to accomplish it. The effort needs a lot of support, though.

    Why is so much concerns about hate speech ?

    I have seen recently an article about Jewish group asking for defunding of the Islamophobe groups .

    For last 30 or 40 years Hollywood , academy , print media , TV and certain religious groups have conducted worst Islamophibia in the US and Europe . The intensity went through the roof burning any concept of human dignity down in last 20 years – thanks to the neocons .

    Purpose is served .

    But Americans slowly woke up. Book like Apartheid and Israeli Lobby and American Foreign Policy started showing up despite effort to suppress theses books . Media started referring to Israeli influences as major factors which made the ME wars possible .
    More and more Americans got curious and soon disgusted and flabbergasted at what Israel had been doing .

    To prevent any mass collective awareness and possible demands for justice , now the Jewish group is trying to erase discussion on the roles they have played .
    How best to achieve it but to advocate for the victims of their own crimes and then use that newly created cultural environment to prevent any discussion about the neoconservative Likudnik , JInS,AIPAC PNAC and OSP.

  16. I was already feeling vaguely irritated with reality — and then this.

    Thanks a lot.

    …what are we going to do? At least the Nazis were right there. They didn’t hide anything. This is like being smothered in cotton wool.

    “Hatred is not yours to feel, Gilad!! 😉 – it is for the one listening or reading to conceive of your words as envivid of hatred, and for them to stain you with their endrenched emotion!”
    Absolutely correct.
    In a legal setting & as a matter of rule-of-thumb common sense, people (& Courts) would consciously or unconsciously ask “what would a reasonable person say, do, feel etc in the particular circumstances” ? A Court or reasonable person would also ask what was your intention ? What did you actually want to happen when someone read the tweet ?
    A reasonable person would not respond to Gilad’s request for introspection with the accusation that
    you are engaging in “Hate”. Nor could they reasonably believe that your intention was to express hatred or for readers to feel hatred in your request.
    The “reasonable person” is part of our Athenian inheritance. Without it we will be ruled by emotion — our only rational business will be to cloak expediency & convenience in superficial rational garb.

Why is Trump issuing executive orders concerning spending when Congress holds the purse strings, but hasn’t tried reforming these platforms via regulations when they are trying to choke off his campaign?

    Why is it that Internet companies have to be neutral in the content over their wires, but social media companies can police their content?

    This phenomenon of being discriminatory towards conservative ideas is years old and no one is attempting to make these platforms less so.

    Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day. But a series of oppressions, pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly proves a deliberate systematic plan of reducing us to slavery.

    Are you cognitively challenged? I didn’t write that Israel isn’t doing bad things, in fact I wrote explicitly that they want to make life miserable for Palestinians, so Palestinians will leave and Israel can go ahead with its annexations. This is undoubtedly bad enough, but it isn’t genocide, a term which should be reserved for acts of mass murder aiming to eradicate a group in its entirety or at least in very substantial parts. While it’s possible that Israel will eventually end up at trying to physically exterminate Palestinians, so far they haven’t done so. Using the “genocide” accusation therefore makes you look like a shallow thinker whose arguments can easily be ridiculed and dismissed, and who will never find an audience beyond the obsessive nutcases congregating at Unz review.

    I just checked, and apparently Gaza has a population growth rate of almost 3%, among the highest in the world. I doubt one could have said the same about Armenian communities during WW1 or about the Warsaw ghetto. If the Israelis have a deliberate plan to physically exterminate the inhabitants of Gaza, they’re doing a bad job of it.
    Now that doesn’t mean Israel’s policy isn’t deserving of serious criticism, the economic blockade is callous enough and undoubtedly creating serious hardship for Gazans. But calling it genocide is obvious hyperbole, and that’s why you’ll be stuck among the loonies at Unz review.

  38. anon in #34 is a typical Izzie animal. Extermination is exactly what the Jew State is doing to Palestinians. Extermination is a process of depriving a people of its means of life, and you see Jew State troops and militia doing that every day: restricting food and water, destroying medical facilities and livelihoods. The holocaust is nothing but Zionist psychosis projected outward onto helpless victims.

    Not really…and objectively, that’s one of the exasperating aspects of it.

    The Jews aren’t even effective oppressors: they torment, abuse, murder — but never on such a scale as to utterly intimidate.

    These aren’t Mongols; they’re Italians, inciting the Libyans and Ethiopians to endless revolt.

    The Jews can’t even crush their victims. They have to endlessly pretend that they’re nice, ‘one of us,’ etc. If they could at least frankly let their inner Nazi out, their problems would be solved.

    …but they can’t. So this goes on, and on, and on. It is objectively, evil.

    There are only two ways out. One is for the Jews to successfully execute the Holocaust where the original Nazis failed. The other is for we here in America to man up and pull the plug.

  42. Petermx says:

    Even former Jews are forbidden to discuss Jews if the discussion is not flattering to them. Benjamin Freedman experienced the same thing. When he made a famous speech many years ago on the Jews role in pushing the USA into WW I and getting a promise from Great Britain in return to work for the creation of Israel and spoke of other things he said the defeated Germans at Versailles resented, he was attacked too and the record still has not been straightened out.

    And it’s no excuse if you are criticizing hatred Jews are espousing towards others. If they want to destroy a country and kill fifteen million people or destroy an entire continent and kill 50 or 60 million people and you oppose that, according to them you are the bigot. When the world renowned aviator Charles Lindbergh argued publicly for peace, saying the US should not enter WW II and another war in Europe would destroy Europe and its peoples (he was obviously right) and that the British, the FDR administration and Jews were pushing the US into WW II, Jews attacked and destroyed Lindbergh as an “anti-Semite”. They had no problem with FDR and the British being accused of the same thing. They supported them. They just don’t want to be seen as having a role in starting a war that killed over sixty million people, while they also want to be where all such major decisions are made so they can have things their way. They want to have their cake and eat it too.

    Numerous major figures on both sides of WW II said the Jews played a major role in starting WW II and Chaim Weizmann, the leader of British and World Zionism’s letters to Winston Churchill are publicly available, if you know where to look for them. In those letters Weizmann pleads for support from Churchill and tells him such support will benefit Britain greatly. He says every Jew in the US, from the lowly tradesman to the most powerful banker is totally behind the US attacking Germany (entering WW II) and that no other group in the US is so unified and strong in this desire. Weizmann writes to Churchill that Jews pushed the US into WW I and they can do it again if he does what they want. Other powerful people said similar things at the time. This and the fact that Jews did many things openly against Germany at the time demonstrated their hatred towards the Germans and their desire for war. But the truth is irrelevant to them. Lindbergh’s truthful statements were dangerous to Jews and he had to destroyed.

There are several platforms that started free of charge and gradually shifted towards upgrades for anything less than the basics. As income from advertising is diminishing they may not have much choice. So ultimately, there will be charges for say ten hate tweets or at the same rate for five tweets with racist or antisemitic content. hence, only the rich will be able to tweet ad libitum. Perhaps Chinese or Russians will offer an alternative but we will have to wait.

    The Gaza Strip’s reputation precedes it. The Indian Army Captain and explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton referred to it as a hellhole–that was in the late 1800s. V.S. Naipaul reported in one of his nonfiction works that a certain “community” in Port-of Spain, Trinidad was known as “The Gaza Strip.” That book was published in the early Sixties. The Israelis may be ruthless and cruel toward those condemned to live there (they are indeed making a hash of “genocide”), but the Egyptians seem to regard them as pariahs, too. And as for Hamas, winners of the dubious honor of Gaza after expelling Fatah…well, at there’s an oceanfront.

    So, what, your argument is that the Israelis are not killing them fast enough? Allow me to retort . .

  52. It’s time to get off this ‘hate’ thing. The ‘anti-hate’ movement is actually a political scam. The ‘stop hate’ crowd are themselves consumed with hatred. Here in the US, they utterly hate Trump and those who voted for him. What they secretly hope to do is criminalize dissent. The ADL crowd are masters of this ruse.

    Leftists use ‘anti-hate’ as a weapon to defame and delegitimize their political adversaries. This libel permits the next step: wholesale deplatforming. Their ultimate goal is censorship, defamation, and exile.

    Meanwhile, the thuggish Left gets to hate the Right with all their hearts while appearing virtuous. Is this fair? Of course not. It’s entirely dishonest. But with the help of the (((MSM))), ‘stopping hate’ is achieving its underhanded goals.

    So let’s get real. Hate can be a very useful, motivating, and appropriate emotion. It is also 100% rational and justified in countless circumstances.

    Don’t you hate injustice? Unjustified violence? Malevolent dishonesty? Abject greed?

    I do.

    It’s time to bring ‘hate’ back to its rightful place: front and center. Many people and actions deserve to be despised. This is why murderers and child molesters are often shot, beaten, or hanged. Their conduct is untenable and deplorable.

    Abhorrent crimes arouse appropriate disgust. This emotional reaction is morally-centered hatred. It is a human virtue.

    Celebrate ‘hate’ when it’s justified to feel abhorrence and loathing for criminals/groups who prey upon the weak, defame the voiceless, manipulate the gullible, and exploit their power to do harm.

    I hate these scumbags. Don’t you?

    ‘Lindbergh’s truthful statements were dangerous to Jews and he had to destroyed.’

    What’s interesting about Lindbergh is that he remained quite a hero up until some point after the mid-sixties. For example, there was a hagiographic movie made about him around 1957.

    Here is an old interview, that portents today’s Jew controlled one party media. It is scary.

    Aldous Huxley interviewed by Mike Wallace : 1958 (Full) (Author of “Brave New World”)

    p.s. The Jew Mike Wallace is the father of Fox’s Chris Wallace.

    Instead of “Palestinians”, a word with no history that most of them cannot even pronounce, why not call them by their more historical name “Philistines”.

    Gilad Atzmon, why do you make a career of keeping Philistines on the small area that is the Land of Israel? Pick an area 10 times greater in some big country and go have fun.

  57. Sounds like you are a bigger whiner than the Jews who you claim whine about your venom. Everyone that knows you knows that you’re a wannabe white supremacist (with Semitic blood) that’s trying to pretend to care about Palestinians to poke Jews in the eye. I look forward to your next article on when Twitter kicks you off (as they have done to your beloved David Duke, VDARE, Molyneaux, etc. and the rest of the rag tag gang of Nazis, klanners and other white supremacist detritus you associate with). I’ll even pop a champagne bottle in honour!

    try some zen mind dissolving and melt into the nothingness of all that there is outside of this dream world ‘factuality’ where there simply is no place at all for all the insane ego/mind social media shite of today, that so very many human minds are imprisoned by, which to my eye look like they are all worshipping the preying mantis god with their not so smart phones held out in front of them as they walk…

    Reminded me that when I got a temporary ban from Twitter, it was also following the complaint of some LGBT moron. My “hate speech” was about big pharma and mandatory vaccinations. Instead of deleting the incriminated tweet, I cancelled my account.

    The LGBT crowd are the most fervent avatars of this new upside-down puritanism. Everything is offensive to the poor little things, with Mother Nature being the biggest offender of all.

    nope…Genocide it is, as defined by the jewish inventor of the word and adopted by the UN. What’s good for the Goose [“Israel”] is good for the Gander [Palestine].

    Thanks Gilad, as ever fighting the good fight for civilisation as it is universally understood….against its mortal enemies indeed! Don’t worry, they won’t succeed because they can’t succeed….their moves are antithetical to the human spirit.

  65. I understand that I violated a tenet of the holocaust religion that no one is allowed to apply the H-word to any other people’s suffering.

    Fifty years ago, holocaust was normally used to describe mass killing not by National Socialists or some proto-Likud, but by a certain Democratic administration in the US.

    The H-word, of course, was prefixed with the N-word.

    Well he’s always repeating your talking points. Smells and walks like a duck so you know…

    Babylon Bee is obviously a humor site, yet the Twitter axe fell on them.

    What is next? Are they going to go after other humor sites?

    Robot teachers to make sure kids are protected & assimilated

    New York, New York — After a prolonged coronavirus shutdown, New York public school educators are eager to catch up with the missed months of teaching and reciting the Communist Manifesto. To boost this noble effort, Mayor De Blasio has lengthened the school day and eliminated the weekends, since no one is supposed to go to church on Sundays anyway.

    Humor is part of being human. Why do the Democrats hate this essential piece of humanity?

    PEACE 😇

  68. I gave up on social media years ago. Today’s situation is sort of the opposite of Orwell’s memory hole. Rather than destroying the past, they keep everything on file for an indefinite time and for when the need strikes them they look for anything that is actionable to censor people in the present.

    Oh yes, as much as we may yearn for the United States of many decades ago, it hardly was a free-speech paradise. If you doubt this please resview some American history of what happened to civilians during the Civil War World War 1 and World War 2. People went to prison merely for holding Politically Incorrect views.
