The ADL continues to press for censorship of views critical of Israel or Jewish power.

As if there weren’t already enough censorship and deplatforming on Jewish issues, the ADL is using the opportunity presented by the Gaza war to ramp up even more. Prior to the war, in May, 2023 the Biden administration unveiled a plan, designed by the ADL, to undertake “over 100 bold and unprecedented actions” to, among other things, pressure social media companies to rein in free speech on their platforms.

This includes the following attempt to pressure social media companies to remove content they don’t like.

The Biden-Harris Administration calls on Congress to hold social media platforms accountable for spreading hate-fueled violence, including antisemitism, by requiring fundamental reforms to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and by removing special immunity for online platforms; to impose much stronger transparency requirements on online platforms, including their algorithmic recommendation systems, content moderation decisions, and enforcement of community standards; and to pass legislation requiring platforms to enable timely and robust public interest research, including on the spread of antisemitism and other forms of hate, using platforms’ data and analyzing their algorithmic recommendation systems, while maintaining users’ privacy.’

Notice that the following would include “banning extremist websites,” presumably including TOO.

The Biden-Harris Administration encourages all online platforms to independently commit to actions such as ensuring that terms of service and community standards explicitly cover antisemitism; adopt zero-tolerance standards for hate speech, including antisemitism; permanently ban repeat offenders, both personal accounts and extremist websites; invest in the human and technical resources necessary to enable vigorous and timely enforcement of their terms of service and community standards; improve capabilities to stop recommending and de-rank antisemitic and other hateful content; and increase the transparency of their algorithmic recommendation systems and data.

The ADL then pushed for action in Congress:

This has morphed into the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act” of 2024. As developed by the ADL, it contained a provision requiring “the National Coordinator to conduct an annual analysis of online antisemitic content, including Holocaust denial and distortion, and prepare recommendations for Congress on how to counter the spread of antisemitism online.”[1]—clearly an attempt to remove criticism of Jews from the internet. As passed by the House,[2] the bill provides that penalties would apply to “programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance” and  could thus include defunding universities that allow protests against Israel and its support by the Jewish community, since in recent years, criticism or opposition to Israel has been conflated with anti-Semitism.[3] This is far less than Jewish activists would like to see in their ideal world: stiff prison sentences for violators. One step at a time.

This version of the  bill includes a provision that the U.S. government define anti-Semitism as defined by the International Holocaust Remembrance Association—a definition that the American Civil Liberties Union opposes because it would likely infringe on the First Amendment by precluding criticism of Israel.[4] For example, “Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel” would presumably make illegal any claim that, despite the existence of relatively powerless anti-Israel Jews, the Israel Lobby and its power in American politics is a project of the mainstream Jewish community with the support of all of the major American Jewish organizations. The Jewish community thus bears considerable responsibility for the actions of Israel given Jewish-influenced U.S. diplomatic and military support for Israel — and the power of the U.S. in international politics.

It would also make illegal “Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis”—when at least some such comparisons are eminently rational and evidence-based. Yair Golan, the deputy head of the Israeli military, stated in 2016: “If there’s something that frightens me about Holocaust remembrance, it’s the recognition of the revolting processes that occurred in Europe – and particularly in Germany – 70, 80 and 90 years ago, and finding signs of them here among us today in 2016.”  Golan called for “national soul-searching”, adding: “There is nothing easier than hating the stranger, nothing easier than to stir fears and intimidate. There is nothing easier than to behave like an animal and to act sanctimoniously.” Of course, he was met with a deluge of criticism,  and he recanted almost immediately.

Moreover, Jewish influence in the media (or via the Israel Lobby) would presumably run afoul of “Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.” This website and some of my other work have often discussed the outsize role of Jewish influence in the media.

And it would appear to make any claim that no Jews could ever be reasonably charged with disloyalty: “Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.” This despite Jonathan Pollard and the well-known statements of Jews like Haim Saban, a major donor to the Democrat Party.

Saban’s commitment to Israel really knows no bounds. This is from an interview with Haaretz in 2006; Saban’s comments are in quotes.

You said once that you are a one-note person, and that note is Israel. Why?

“You can’t explain love.”

It’s really love?

“More than love. Passion. A love that is passion.”

Please explain.

“When we approach Israel I always ask the pilots of my plane to let me sit in the chair between them. We don’t play ‘Heveinu Shalom Aleichem,’ but when I see the coast coming up my heart starts to go boom, boom, boom.”

Is Israel also part of your everyday life here, in Los Angeles?

“At 9 A.M. I start with London and Kirschenbaum [Channel 10’s evening current events program]. After that, throughout the day, if I see something about Israel on one of the four channels that are always on in my office, on mute, I immediately turn on the sound. And I have Israeli music on my computer, classics and contemporary singers, too.

“Let me tell you a story. A few years ago I got some new albums and I put them on the computer. Suddenly ‘The Photos in the Album’ [sung by Haim Moshe] comes up. I’m standing there, shaving, listening to the lyrics. And the tears stream over the soap, without my even being able to explain why. Grandma, mom cooking, I promised you wouldn’t fight against anyone. A knife in the heart. That is the heart of the nation. And I love this nation. I love the Jewish people, even more the Israeli people. I feel a very deep bond which I can’t explain.”

Haim Saban is an American citizen, but can there really be any question where his loyalty lies? I suspect it’s the same with the neocons accused of spying, and with AIPAC’s Rosen and Weissman (see previous link). A big part of my article on neocons was simply to document their intense commitment to Israel.

Finally, Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed it would infringe on some Christian beliefs, such as the view that Jews were responsible for killing Christ.

It’s pretty obvious that facts and truth are completely irrelevant, as one expects when dealing with ethnocentric activists. But that shouldn’t prevent internet-based criticism of Israel and Jewish influence to continue as long as possible. It’s just getting more and more unlikely that this will be allowed to continue. It’s quite possible that it won’t be long before criticism of Jews and Jewish power is confined to printed material mailed to subscribers in envelopes without return addresses, just like the 1980s. The First Amendment be damned.

    01 I have been more than puzzled by msm acknowledgment, that several Jewish billionaires and organizations have funded the omnipresent pro-Palestine demonstrators.
    02 It now appears, that they themselves are cranking up antisemitism, the easier to pass their ACT and make it generally acceptable, which, in turn, will curb it. Like a well-planned billiard shot.

    This is a proposed violation of our constitutional right to free speech.

    Will Americans resist and fight back, or has it become what Dr. Pierce once said: “There are no men left in America, only a lot of women of both sexes”.

    I realize there is the fear of economic loss (think carefully on that my brothers and sisters) but if you do nothing then our folk are finished. Do remember, brothers and sisters, cowardice is contagious, but so is courage! Therefore, use your real name on these posts, and God will be with you.

    Let us all learn the hidden lesson from Gaza – the enemy is throwing stones from a glass house.

    When a law that doesn’t conform to the constitution goes into effect, what is the recourse of the public? Legal action with miscellaneous free speech groups would have to take place in order to bring a case to the Supreme Court so that Americans can get their rights back. But that would not be achieved overnight. There would have to be widespread public pushback. Do modern Americans love freedom enough to do something about this?

      Legal action with miscellaneous free speech groups would have to take place in order to bring a case to the Supreme Court so that Americans can get their rights back.

      For the past decade, the Supreme Court has made it plain that it has no interest in referring to First, Fourth, and Fifth amendment guarantees when appeals against laws or lower-court rulings that plainly ignore or show contempt for those guarantees are granted certiorari. With these three amendments now being treated as dead letters, the evidence that Justices are fully on board with (((Deep State))) practices and goals grows stronger by the week.

      With the Ninth and Tenth amendments having been written off as dead letters several decades ago and with the Second Amendment being regularly denounced by Jewish groups as an anti-Semitic dog whistle, the only amendment that the Court has shown any lively interest in of late is the Fourteenth. It is hardly coincidental that that amendment was never legally ratified.

    By anti-Semite they really mean Amalek. It is also hard not to notice the barrage of “good jews” opposing the Gaza genocide all over the media. I understand why the Germans made them wear gold stars. It really is relevant to the conversation.

    Hitler was radical, without a doubt. He was “intolerant” (tolerance means endurance). Whether he is not condemned and demonized by equally intolerant forces, out of pure self-interest, is another question. On the other hand, we should take a close look at what he (allegedly) represents. He was a right-wing radical. Right stands for reason, the right, the right hand, justice. It is interesting that in German, as in English, “leftist” has a shabby, devious, pejorative meaning.

    In English there is the word “sinister”, borrowed from Latin, which comes from sinistra, left. Here, however, we want to look at the rest of this demonized word combination, namely “radical”. What does this actually mean? Radical also comes from Latin and comes from radix, which means root. So anyone who demonizes the root must be rootless themselves. And who the f-ing hell could this be? It is those who are “at home nowhere, but do business everywhere”, condemned to “eternal restless wandering”.

    The masculine, heroic, soldierly, honorable, brotherly, sacrificial, pain-resistant, national, patriarchal, disciplined is demonized and condemned. The fatherland is to be destroyed. The “authoritarian personality”, the “authoritarian character” (Fromm) was branded as devastating and destructive, as having no future whatsoever. Men are the evil of the world, even though they have achieved everything that makes us who we are.

    Where does all this come from? In my opinion, it comes from “Shekhinah”, the maternal bloodline, which, in contrast to our initiatory cultures without such outlandish early childhood circumcision, is the deciding factor for the destroyers. Matrix means uterus, but also the all-consuming digital machine world, that “sucks” us in and makes us lose ourselves. “Their” interpretation of the world is diametrically opposed to ours.

    Thanks Kevin.

    Think of the G. Floyd protests, the destruction and death they caused. Yet college students, peacefully protesting genocide on college campuses that they, their parents, pay big money to attend, are quickly shut down and vilified by the media.

    I don’t see this bill gaining any traction in the future but you never know.

    Call your Senators and tell them not to support the Antisemitism Awareness Act. If they do, they’ll lose your vote.

    Jewry’s power and presence has become very visible today to those who aren’t somnolent or blindsided. Hence the hysterical rush of key Jews and their vetted, subservient minions to surpress the rising open criticism. The velvet glove is now coming off of the kosher fist, because they’ve overplayed their game, and are desperate to squelch all opponents of their machinations.
    Jew awareness, or “anti-semitism”, simply put, is caused by Jewish misbehavior. The upshot of this process is that Jewry is setting themselves up for another much earned ethnic comeuppance, of one sort or another.
