Disappearing Pamela Geller, by Pamela Geller.
Joseph Stalin airbrushed photos to erase the presence of those who had fallen out of favor. Left-run social media titans are doing the very same thing. They are disappearing me.
My website and posts have been scrubbed from Google search. Fourteen years and over forty thousand posts. Google Adsense has banned my account. Google is blacklisting and has admitted to working with alt-left smear groups to silence opposition. And it’s not just me, it’s all criticism of jihad and sharia.
Facebook has blocked my news-feed. My twitter account is shadowbanned. I have been blocked from uploading videos to YouTube punishment for 2007 video on jihad (and YouTube demonetized all of my videos). Paypal suspended me until an outpouring of condemnation and outrage forced a reversal.
Is this really America?

Message: I’ve had retweets and tweets with @pamgeller removed from my Twitter page quickly. As I post, it’s removed. I took photos of a few tweets, to prove I wrote and posted them. I timed one post, I simply typed Pam’s twitter handle, posted the jeopardy theme song link, and wrote How long before Tweet is removed from my feed. Less than 20 seconds, it was gone. Please feel free to reach out to me. I am happy to send you photos. …
All my work is in defense of the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the equality of rights of all people before the law, and individual rights. The claim that I operate a hate group is a vicious smear and eerily evokes the circumstances that preceded the rise of the Nazis in the 1930s.
Meanwhile, all of Islam is “supremacist.” So if YouTube were to follow its policy consistently, it would have to ban every video exhorting and preaching for Islam. …
This is happening while hate groups like such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are getting millions from leftwing corporate managers. The SPLC received a two million dollar pledge from Apple, and MGM Resorts International will match employees’ donations to terror-tied group CAIR.
The left is awash in funding. And they mean to cut off everything from those working in defense of the free and the brave. …
Being cut off from domain registrars and other aspects of the internet backbone is something we expect from totalitarian governments. Now that power is in the control of almost-uniformly left-wing corporate managers.
It’s subtler and less obvious, not an outright ban but a misdirection and down-ranking. But the direction is unmistakable.
