Wingnuts In a Lather After Wordpress.com Takes Down Anti-Muslim Blog

Kudos to Wordpress: free speech stops when you are making specific terror threats
LGF • Views: 25,321

Jim “Dim” Hoft and company are upset that “Bare Naked Islam” has been taken down after a CAIR complaint and FBI investigation. (Note: I’m not a big fan of CAIR as they also have a history of hyper-sensitivity, some bad associations, and in the past they sent the FBI after Charles. The Muslim community can find better representatives.)

After seeing the news story I’m going to say “kudos” to Wordpress. They can’t be forced to host blogs that make specific terrorist threats against houses of worship.

Our nation was formed in part to create a country where religion could be practiced freely; threats against Mosques aren’t just anti-muslim, they are anti-american. Wordpress has the right and the duty to shut down the blog based on their terms of service.

A prominent national Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization today called on the FBI to investigate a number of threats of violence targeting mosques posted online on an anti-Islam hate site, including the comment “I want [Muslim] blood on my hands” by an individual who claims he regularly drives past a Virginia mosque.

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) also urged wordpress.com to remove the hate site because its calls to violence violate the hosting company’s terms of service,” which prohibit blogs that “contain threats or incite violence towards individuals or entities.”

[NOTE: At CAIR’s request, wordpress.com last year deleted a similar blog containing posts that advocated burning mosques, making false bomb threats implicating Muslims, desecrating Muslim graves, and that recommended the “proper way to shoot a muslim [sic].”]

CAIR said articles and comments posted on the anonymous blog “Bare Naked Islam” (BNI) routinely urge attacks on and desecration of American and European mosques.

[NOTE: Grammatical errors have been maintained for all posts and comments below.]

“Keith Mahone (aka Charles Martel),” who states that he regularly drives by a Virginia mosque, wrote: “[I]f you see a Muslim licking an ice cream cone in the park and you blow his head off you are technically committing an act of self defense…Muslims must learn they they are not safe anywhere outside a Muslim country…My heart does a back flip to see a mosque “desecrated”…Burn every mosque to the ground in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and kill every Muslim twice…I want their blood on my hands as a matter of principle.”
