ACLU, Speakers Distance Themselves From UC Berkeley’s Free Speech Week

VIDEO: Pamela Geller with J.D. Hayworth on Newsmax TV on Facebook Free Speech Lawsuit


Earlier this evening I was on J. D. Hayworth’s show on Newsmax TV to discuss our lawsuit against Loretta Lynch.

The renowned human rights organization the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI)’s legal counsel, the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), is filing a federal lawsuit today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, challenging Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) under the First Amendment. In a press release, the AFLC explained that “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.” AFDI, its President Pamela Geller, and Jihad Watch and its director Robert Spencer, are bringing this suit.

The AFLC explained: “Geller and Spencer, along with the organizations they run, are often subject to censorship and discrimination by Facebook, Twitter and YouTube because of Geller’s and Spencer’s beliefs and views, which Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube consider expression that is offensive to Muslims. Such discrimination, which is largely religion-based in that these California businesses are favoring adherents of Islam over those who are not, is prohibited in many states, but particularly in California by the state’s anti-discrimination law, which is broadly construed to prohibit all forms of discrimination. However, because of the immunity granted by the federal government, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are free to engage in their otherwise unlawful, discriminatory practices.”

AFDI President Pamela Geller said in a statement: “Every day I received emails from readers and members of my various Facebook groups, asking for help after having been blocked for posting a story or comment that might offend Muslims. This is America, not Saudi Arabia. Enough. I am suing. For years I have documented the outrageous bias of Facebook’s speech policies. Notoriously one-sided, those who oppose jihad terror, support Israel and stand against the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth (sharia) have been systematically blocked and banned.”

Geller added: “And to those of you who say, ‘Forget Facebook, we’ll do without it,’ I say no. I am sick and tired of the suppression of our speech. We are unable to engage in the public square. And yes, Facebook is the public square; it’s where we connect. We have to fight for it. Shouting into the wilderness is not freedom of speech. My Facebook page has close to 300,000 followers, and combined with my pages (SIOA, SION, AFDI), the reach is another 100,000. It’s a critical connection.”

    Its time to stop flooding the country with these jihadis or America will become rape and jihadi capital of the world. Muslim jihadis work like the mafia.

    Most Media are corrupt, bought out by saudis and OIC to push Islam and Islam pandering politicians like Obama and Hillary check here ……..and some of the Republican “conservative” politicians too !

    Liberal/Leftist Loons are responsible for assault and rape on women that is
    rampant in European Hell holes now . And Police blame the women for
    getting Raped !!

    Vote Trump or Expect this to get worse.

  • Jackie

    That they pulled your page Pam the day after San Bernadido was SO telling! You were the one warning this violence could happen and when it does Facebook shoots the messenger not the evil doers. Good luck with the suit I love this! Also thank you for using Discus for your comments. My local newspaper switched to facebook and I could be fired at work for anything I say then- there is an entire department monitoring facebook. It’s chilling of free speech and awful.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      When the Canadian newspapers that I used to read switched over to facebook, I stopped reading them. Their advertisers can figure out how to reach me, if they want my nickel and dime account.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    facebook is socially irrelevant, it could have been of considerable value, but it chose to use the stick instead of the carrot, it can shove the stick up its own elevated derriere.

    • Jimbeau

      but FB is where millions of the clueless are… they NEED to read conservative rebuttal to the leftist crap that is overflowing there.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Hard to do that when censored.

        • Jimbeau

          Gotta try, though.

  • joe1429

    Good for you pam! I hope you win the suit against facebook, for all of us

  • rockyh77

    If it were not for Trump the Republicans would have thrown the election to Queen Hillary. We need to get everyone we can behind Trump for President.

  • Drew the Infidel

    As I have said before on this site and elsewhere, those in politics and the media who seek to criticize Pamela for expressing her views need to be reminded that the constitutional liberties that allow her to do so are the very same liberties that allow political stances and the media to even exist in the first place.

  • G P

    I wish you every success Pamela – you’re a class act.

    • Mr Paul Middleton

      Pam is towering, isn’t she? I’m so happy she’s on Facebook’s case.

  • Scorpio

    I could listen to Pamela speak for hours – she’s a great educator. She should be speaking in every school in the US.

  • Stephen Honig

    The communist old bitch was an advocate for the ACLU before she took the position of Supreme Court Justice, appointed by the ex-lawyer Bill Clinton.

    • Zulu

      And the American Communist party too

  • whoselineisitanyway

    I have been blocked for 7 days. What I said was chump change to what others have said. Want help filing my own lawsuit against FB.

  • Dennis

    After reading this article and listening to the Newsmax interview attached, I emailed Pamela and took the liberty to suggest that her lawyers to not only present the Constitutional argument that guarantees Free Speech, but also to include in their argument that the information that is being suppressed by these giant media monolithic’s, actually involves the Reality and Truth of these very troubling times. Using history, would the media have suppressed the Reality and Truth that the Nazi’s had adopted a policy of domination that included genociding whole cultures in their failed and heinous attempt to “cleanse” the world of so-called inferiors. I think not. Therefore, does not the same reasoning apply to the belief system which seeks domination thru what it refers to as Jihad, which again results in domination and removal of all those who will not accept Islam and Shari a as their belief system, and effectively preaches totalitarianism involving the overthrow of everything that we believe in as just and righteous. Even if a majority of Islam rejects the genocide of jihad, the facts are obvious that many among the world of Islam do accept the terrorist views that involve heinous acts, and THAT conduct should never be protected from one’s ability to speak out against it, as people like Pam, Spencer, Wilder and the like have done to educate the world. That should never be suppressed and Reality and Truth should always prevail in the world of information. I can only hope that the lawsuit will successfully affect the sadly dangerous conduct that is otherwise referred to as being wrongly “politically correct,” to our ever lasting damage.

    Facebook and Microsoft and Google have made a lot of their own physical infrastructure with their own fiber on land and undersea cables. That raises lots of questions:
    When do these corporations become considered internet providers? What about net neutrality? Who owns the bottom of the sea? When does something become a common carrier?

    Pam is thourough, meticulous, extremely knowledgeable, factually correct, extremely well spoken, and TENACIOUS!!!

    Just the same Pam, good luck!!

    You are awesome

  • Steve Edward

    Hey! Point to the bigotry of the Koran and the Hadith these taqiyya driven Mus-Slimes follow. Post it everywhere. Tell your representatives, your senators, your Governers, Is-Slime is bigotry. Why? It advocates murder of Kafirs, that is you, non-mus-slimes. If your Power Holders protect Mus-Slimes to advocate bigotry, then they are subject to Hate Crime Laws in your States. Do it. Don’t Think About It. Just Do It !!!

  • Patrick

    I could listen to you all day and half the night Pamela! I really enjoy your articulate defense of freedom and liberty in the West and Israel. Thanks for your indefatigable spirit.

  • Kook of the East

    I don’t get this at all.
    Facebook is rotten to the core. It can not be reformed.
    Just leave it.
