This is a longer video than most, but well worth watching.
Sebastian Gorka is not the only one to speak up about this – Stephen Caughlin has also spoken out about the reality of the ideological purges in the intelligence community on many occasions. However, Sebastian Gorka goes into the roots of the Obama ideology in a much clearer detail:
The following video is included as it focuses on he story of one of the victims of the Obama purges:
While I don’t agree with everything said, it is something to think about.
From Maryam Namazi of One Law For All:
‘The Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain and others have called for 25 April to be an international day to defend Bangladesh’s bloggers and activists. Please spread the word, sign this petition today, and stand with and for Bangladeshi freethinkers.
As you may know, in January, 29 year old blogger Asif Mohiuddin was stabbed. In February, 35 year old atheist blogger involved in the Shahbag protests, Ahmed Rajib, was brutally killed. Islamists continue to threaten prominent bloggers and have called for the “execution of 84 atheist bloggers for insulting religion”. Rather than prosecute the Islamists, the government has arrested some bloggers and shut down blogs and sites.
We unequivocally condemn the attacks on and threats against atheist, secularist and freethinking bloggers and call on the Bangladeshi government to guarantee their safety, respect free expression and prosecute Islamists who threaten, attack and harm critics.
On 25 April, we urge groups and individuals to rally at Bangladeshi embassies, contact members of parliament in their countries of residence, highlight the situation, write protest letters, carry out acts of solidarity, Tweet #Bangladesh #Bloggers and more.
You can find more information here.’
In case you are not aware, Bangladeshi Islamists have been calling for including the death penalty for transgressing Bangladesh’s blasphemy laws:
Blasphemy laws are being implemented in more and more countries. Russia, for example, is preparing a blasphemy law so unreasonable (in every sense of the word) that the mere teaching of evolution and the Big Bang Theory would violate it. And don’t even get me started on the UN…
We must fight this trend of normalizing penalties for blasphemy – an integral part of free speech. Supporting the Bangladeshi bloggers is a small step in the right direction!
Oh, my, my!
So, for quite a while, Arnie over at BlazingCatFur has been doing some deep investigative reporting into the actions and policies of the TDSB (Toronto District School Board).
From they glorify the Black Panthers and that highly photogenic psychopathic murderer Che Guevara, to how they permit the interrogation of their students who happen to be female and Muslim as to whether they are having a period – and if they do, they get sent to the back of the room to the instructions to students on how to have sex with vegetables…and more!
Yes, the TDSB has done all that – and Arnie has covered it on his blog, long before it would break in the more traditional media!
His signature is abrasive, not politically-correct language, sarcasm and hyperbole.
It makes one think of the time the ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ theme song got a school lock-down – except there, it was a simple misunderstanding, while here, there is a definite stink of trying to silence the messanger.
Just received this email – thought I’d share:
If you complain about censorship to the European Parliament, they’ll just censor you.
That’s the message that concerned citizens in the EU have been receiving after the European Parliament’s IT department began blocking thousands of emails from citizens opposed to a controversial new policy (one that itself could have a serious impact on Europeans’ freedom of expression online).
And if we complain? I suppose they’ll block those emails too. So instead of emailing, help us make this petition go viral!
Everyone deserves a voice! Don’t let the European Parliament silence the people they are supposed to represent. Click here to take action and demand that they immediately stop blocking emails from their citizens.
The censorship was uncovered earlier today by an MEP from the Pirate Party. Here’s his first hand account of what went down:
“Next week the European parliament will be voting on a resolution to ‘ban all forms of pornography in media.’ After this information became known to a wider audience, many citizens have decided to contact members of the European parliament to express their views on this issue … Before noon, some 350 emails had arrived in my office. But around noon, these mails suddenly stopped arriving. When we started investigating why this happened so suddenly, we soon found out: The IT department of the European Parliament is blocking the delivery of the emails on this issue, after some members of the parliament complained about getting emails from citizens.”
You can read his full account here.
Shockingly, this is not the first time this has happened. During the widespread outcry against ACTA, Parliamentary authorities decided to send all emails related to ACTA to MEP’s spam folders.
Thank you for taking action against censorship. If everyone shares this petition and forwards this email to friends, we can generate enough outcry to ensure that the public’s voice is heard.
For Internet freedom,
Holmes, Tiffiniy, Evan, and the whole team.
