The Santa Monica Republican Women Federated held their September monthly luncheon at the Beverly Hills Women’s Club due to the overwhelming response to speaker Robert Spencer and the subject, “The Left’s Jihad Against the Freedom of Speech”.
Those on the Right are acutely aware that our speech is being censored and silenced. As people arrived and gathered around tables, the talk was of how many ways our speech is being silenced.
Robert Spencer began by saying if he were to name the time we are living in he would call this “The Era of Absurdity”. We are being told to believe the unbelievable. Let’s begin with Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers of the Woman’s March where women wore “pussy hats” and “vagina” costumes. She recently gave a speech saying that before she started wearing the hijab, she was just a white woman from Brooklyn. But when she put on the hijab she became a woman of color. She now identifies as a Palestinian-American woman of color. Absurd.
Linda Sarsour (translated in Arabic is “cockroach”) describes the hijab as liberating. But how is a hijab liberating? The purpose of a hijab is to cover one of a woman’s more beautiful features so that they will be less attractive to men. In fact, Islam considers it a woman’s responsibility to cover herself so she won’t attract men. It is not a man’s responsibility to restrain his passions. Absurd and unjust.
The Left wants no restraints on immorality but embraces Muslim restraints on women. Again…….absurd.
Let’s examine the absurdity of identifying as a Palestinian-American woman of color. First, there has never been a “state” of Palestine, nor is there a Palestinian ethnicity. Those called “Palestinians” are from Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries. In the 1960’s Yasser Arafat invented Palestine and Palestinians. Brooklyn born Linda Sarsour is saying she’s from a country that never existed and is a White woman of color.
Spencer said if you are Black, you don’t need to tell anyone you are, it’s obvious. He asked why anyone would pay attention to White people who say they are Black or a religion that says they are the religion of peace when…..they’re NOT? They need to keep reminding people because they’re worldview keeps conflicting with reality. Absurd, absurd, absurd.
In the absurd world where people accept that you are whatever and whoever you say you are, Robert Spencer said he is Linda Sarsour.
Spencer went on to describe how Conservative speech is being silenced. Spencer’s Facebook page, “Jihad Watch” normally had about 20,000 hits a day. All of a sudden it went down to 2,000 a day. The same has happened to many Conservative pages. Facebook had no answer to the drop.
Before this happened, if you googled “Jihad”, “Islam”, “Muslim” his page would be one of the first to come up, but that is no longer the case.
Spencer said Joel Kaplan, Vice President of Public Policy at Facebook, recently traveled to Pakistan and assured them Facebook would will remove fake accounts and explicit, hateful and provocative material that incites violence and terrorism.
A California Imam recently called Muslims to kill and annihilate all Jews. https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/california-imam-calls-for-muslims-to-annihilate-the-jews
Facebook didn’t remove the video showing the Imam saying this. Apparently, Facebook doesn’t think that might “incite violence or terrorism” or offend “community standards”. However, Twitter said Spencer saying “Islam is not a religion of peace” was hate speech and deleted it.
“The Left is at war with reality”. Spencer said Facebook, Twitter, Google and YouTube have more control over speech than ANY government has EVER had. It started when Obama gave control of the internet to the United Nations. Let that sink in.
Spencer said we must not surrender, we must keep fighting. He said think of the blades of grass that poke through the concrete. BE A BLADE OF GRASS!!
