American’s first Amendment rights violated by Social Media companies

maxresdefault-3

This month the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) filed a federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, challenging Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) under the First Amendment.

Center for Security Policy  Section 230 provides immunity from lawsuits to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, thereby permitting these social media giants to engage in government-sanctioned censorship and discriminatory business practices free from legal challenge.

The lawsuit was brought on behalf of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and Jihad Watch. The lawsuit alleges that Spencer and Geller as well as the organisations they run, have often been subject to discrimination and censorship by twitter Facebook and YouTube because of the beliefs and views they express. They believe the censorship and discrimination is because these social media organisations consider their freedom of expression to be offensive to Muslims.

The truth about Orlando

Employee tells man to get out of women’s restroom and gets fired

Transgender bathrooms continue to cause problems.  In New York an employee of Macys, Javier Chavez, was recently fired  even though he was prepared to enforce the policy once he had been made aware of it.  At the time of the incident he did not know that there had been a change in bathroom policy.

Macy’s department store has fired a Catholic employee because he questioned their transgender bathroom policy, even though he says he told his employer he would enforce the policy.

Back in May, Javier Chavez, a senior store detective at Macy’s Flushing, New York, location got a phone call about a male accessing the ladies room along with a female.

A female customer and her daughter were afraid to enter the restroom due the male’s presence there, and a security guard reporting to Chavez directed the man to leave and use the men’s room. The man left, claiming to be a female, before then complaining to the store officials about being asked to leave.

Chavez was later informed by a Macy’s assistant store manager that certain males can use the ladies restroom, something he had not been made aware of prior to the incident. Then an assistant security manager told Chavez that transgender individuals can use the bathroom of their choosing.

Chavez responded that he had just become aware of the policy. He said it was contrary to his religion and the Bible, but said that even so, he would enforce Macy’s policy.

“Macy’s would not leave this alone,” Catholic League President Bill Donohue stated, “and this is where it crossed the line.” Read more »

Cartoonist Renald Luzier is overcome with grief during a Press conference to launch the first issue of Charlie Hebdo after the terrorist attack that murdered all his fellow cartoonists

We all know how extremist Islamic terrorists  silenced the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo by slaughtering  almost all of its cartoonists.  For a short period of time the remaining cartoonist continued to bravely mock Islam but eventually the strain was too much and they made a public declaration that Islam would be the only religion that the magazine would not satirise.

In an Islamic country that the media have repeatedly  held up as an example of moderate Islam, you would not expect a satirical magazine to be silenced.  In Turkey  however, in the wake of the failed coup by the army whose role is to keep  mosque and state separate, that is exactly what has happened.

The truth about Milo being banned

Want to keep lucrative endorsement deals? Don’t have conservative opinions

The most telling thing about this story is the reason the companies gave for hiring her in the first place.

“Brands choose someone like Sonia Kruger because she doesn’t really stand for anything. She’s quite harmless, she’s nice and she’s non-offensive. ”

“Her whole brand is the inoffensive nice girl and she’s managed to offend a whole lot of people this week. She’s gone off brand and that’s very damaging.”

“Feminist Hero” murdered by her brothers in Pakistan

A belief system that calls the murder of an unarmed woman an “honour killing” is a belief system that has no honour.  A legal system that allows murderers to escape justice if a family member forgives them, also has no honour. The latest woman murdered in the Islamic country of Pakistan described herself as a modern-day feminist.

“As women we must stand up for ourselves. As women, we must stand up for each other,” she told her 758,000 followers on Facebook, days before her death.

There is clearly no place for feminism in a society with a misogynistic legal system and misogynistic beliefs. Fauzia Azeem, like many Muslim women before her, has learned this the hard way – sadly. I wonder when Western feminists will finally get it? Islam is incompatible with feminism. The Muslim women in the West who claim to be feminists while wearing their hijabs, only have the freedom to say those things because they live in the relative safety of the West. It isn’t Islam that gives them feminist freedom, it is Western civilization.
