The jihad against Jihad Watch, the siege against Gates of Vienna blog
Newer Update (10:30 PM Jan 21):
Now I can get into Gates of Vienna, but when I try to get into any comments field there to leave a comment, I get an error message from "Host Gator" telling me there'a "404 error". I suppose these are hiccups from the rebuilding process -- but the blame for all this still lies squarely on the shoulders of the PC MC Google corporation and its irrational hypersensitivity to imagined "hate speech" (a crime which, of course, only those who defend the West and its liberal values are guilty of).
New Update (6 PM Jan. 21):
Within 60 minutes of my last update below, thinking that Gates of Vienna was back up and running under its new domain, I now find that clicking on the new URL no longer leads me to Gates of Vienna, but now leads me to a Wordpress page that says, in part:
Welcome to the famous five minute WordPress installation process! You may want to browse the ReadMe documentation at your leisure. Otherwise, just fill in the information below and you’ll be on your way to using the most extendable and powerful personal publishing platform in the world.
Gates of Vienna is back, building itself back up after migrating to its own domain, free of Google/Blogger. The URL is the same, except for a .net at the end:
I'll leave what I wrote previously, as in many ways it's still relevant:
There in an ongoing situation that evidently will continue flutuating for an indefinite time -- Jihad Watch is still plagued with minor problems, though it seems (for now) to have surmounted the cyber attack it sustained earlier this week.
The Gates of Vienna blog, however, after it seemed to have reappeared unscathed the other day, has now become inaccessible again -- for at least the last 24 hours if not longer.
This time, it looks like more than a technical "glitch". Instead of getting to the blog when you click on its link, you get this Orwellian, Kafkaesque notice:
"This blog is under review due to possible Blogger Terms of Service violations and is open to authors only".
And what "Term of Service" did Gates of Vienna likely "violate"? No doubt this one, found under their "Content policy" page, in which with one hand they claim to support freedom of speech, but with the other -- just as the Constitution under the totalitarian Soviet Union in large print guaranteed rights but took them away in the fine print -- they provide themselves with a broad loophole to arbitrarily invoke the irrational paradigm of PC MC in order to trample that right:
Hate Speech: We want you to use Blogger to express your opinions, even very controversial ones. But, don't cross the line by publishing hate speech. By this, we mean content that promotes hate or violence towards groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity. For example, don't write a blog saying that members of Race X are criminals or advocating violence against followers of Religion Y.
Is it just a coincidence that the two largest, most inflental counter-jihad sites on the Internet became beset with sign in problems in the same week? We could be seeing just the beginning of the Islamoleftist nebula finally getting their shit together to try to cripple what they have long perceived to be a threat to their agenda -- that threat being, of course, the mere presentation of the facts about Islam and the ongoing, if not metastasizing, danger Islam poses to the liberties which the modern world cherishes (or should cherish) -- facts the Islamoleftists have been trying to obfuscate for years. The irony, of course, is that the broader non-Leftist, non-Muslim culture of Politically Correct Multi-Culuralism which dominates the West (and we see a massive glimpse of that idiocy in the Terms of Service quoted above) unwittingly aids and abets that obfuscation.
But the Islamoleftists know that the mountainous mudslide of horrifically anti-liberal data which they are defending is slowly becoming clearer and clearer (if only by virtue of the fact that Muslims have a blueprint of supremacist-expansionist Lebensraum to follow to the fanatical letter), and that they will not be able to count on our dominant dunces in the PC MC orbit to continue helping them, unwittingly, too much longer. Even PC MCs have a limit, and Muslims are inexorably on their way to testing that limit past its breaking point. Sensing this, Islamoleftists in the meantime seek to circumvent that process, through garden-variety thuggery, including cyber-atacks and exploiting the irrational sensitivity to "hate speech" which continues to motivate PC MCs past the point of sense; when they, the PC MCs, insist on opposing criticism and condemnation of the worst haters and bigots in the world -- Muslims.
