The internet is an unprecedented means to leap over established media walls and to speak or receive the whole truth. No longer must Americans depend upon the popular press or the “Big Three” TV evening news programs. Much freer, unbiased news is now available on the web. This alternative is deeply troubling to those who want to control what we hear and think.
In this article, I will briefly discuss two enormous challenges to freedom on the internet. First, the threat of “anti-hate" laws. In many countries, such as Canada, hate laws criminalize "cyber hate," which includes internet criticism of taboo subjects, particularly homosexuality and matters Jewish. Second, the threat from phone and cable giants. They want to commercialize the internet, giving preferential service to those they favor, while discriminating against those they don’t.
Hate Laws: Huge Threat to Internet Freedom
Anti-hate laws are the most direct, effective way to destroy a free internet. Sec. 13.1 of Canada’s federal hate law, the Canadian Human Rights Act, forbids any statement on the internet which holds up members of federally protected groups to "hatred" or contempt. As a result, since its inception 28 years ago, many who have criticized homosexuality or Jews or have questioned the accuracy of the alleged six million figure of the Jewish Holocaust victims, have been prosecuted, fined thousands of dollars, and threatened with prison if they continue such internet "cyber hate." Paul Frohm, authority on Canada’s internet hate laws, summarizes: “In 28 years, no victim has ever been acquitted of a 13.1 charge-‘hate’ on the internet or on telephone answering machines. No one! Also, all of the victims have been on the right of the political spectrum. It’s Soviet style political censorship.” (www.cafe.canadafirst.net)
Internet Hate Laws: Creation of ADL/B'nai B'rith
Canada's speech crime laws are the product of B'nai B'rith International and its civil liberties branch, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith (www.adl.org).
B’nai B’rith is a global Jewish religious, educational, fraternal, and charitable organization with a half million Jewish members occupying 2100 lodges and chapters in more than 50 nations.
B’nai B’rith describes itself as the voice of organized Jewry. B’nai B’rith/ADL is also the voice of anti-Christian Jewish activism. ADL occupies the frontline of legal efforts to block Christian nativity scenes, public display of the Ten Commandments, prayer in schools or prayer in the name of Jesus, Biblical creationism, Christian witnessing to Jews, etc. (See, "Defeated in Congress, ADL Attacks Religious Right")
At the same time, ADL is totally supportive of homosexuality, encouraging acceptance of the “gay lifestyle” even in kindergarten and grade school curricula. ADL supports abortion, pornography, and whatever is against Christian family values. It bestows "tolerance" awards on businesses, especially in media and communications, which discriminate against Christian "homophobia" and encourage respect for the "diversity" of homosexuality.
Not All Jews Support ADL/B’nai B’rith
Many Jews vehemently disapprove of ADL Christian bashing. The most outspoken and well-known is Orthodox rabbi Daniel Lapin, head of the Seattle-based "Toward Tradition." Last summer during his program on the Trinity Broadcasting TV Network, Lapin warned millions of evangelical viewers that ADL/B’nai B’rith was in "relentless attack on evangelical Christians." (See, "Rabbi Lapin: Christians Under 'Relentless Attack' by 'Secular Judaism'")
ADL decries conservative political activism, saying that such violates separation of church and state. Yet ADL is not timid about uniting synagogue and state. ADL is deeply involved in the U.S. government’s hate crimes law enforcement program. Under the ADL-inspired Hate Crime’s Statistics Act of 1990, ADL obtained the right to teach all FBI, Justice Department, and local police its skewed definition of what "hate" is.
ADL’s working definition of "hate" is simple: It means to be biased against a federally protected group, especially Jews and homosexuals. As a result, Christians who adhere to the "hateful" Biblical view that homosexuality is an abomination (Leviticus 18:22) or that Jewish leaders contrived to have Christ crucified 2000 years ago automatically become "haters," potential hate criminals.
ADL’s Record of Persecuting Christians
ADL enforces its bias against Christians by convicting and fining Christians, especially in Canada, for public criticism of homosexuality. (See, "Crackdown on Holocaust Reductionists: Omen of Coming Persecution of Christians") Yet in the U.S., ADL is straining to initiate similar persecution. On October 10, 2004 Philadelphia D.A. Lynne Abraham, member of ADL’s national executive board, gave orders to arrest 11 Christians who were peacefully singing a hymn and holding up Bible verses critical of homosexuality during a gay pride rally. She charged them with seven violations of the law, including ADL’s Pennsylvania hate law. Total jail time threatened was 47 years, plus $90,000 dollars in fines each. Fortunately, as a result of massive criticism, ADL was thwarted in its attempt to jumpstart persecution of Christians in America; a higher court freed the Christians, finding no legal basis for their arrest. (See, "Eleven Christians Jailed for Criticizing Homosexuality")
ADL Wants ‘Big Brother’ Hate Bureaucracy for America
ADL wants America to come under the control of a federal anti-hate law like the one it persuaded Parliament to establish in Canada in 1971. Today, as a result of ADL’s Canadian Human Rights Act, criticism of homosexuality or Judaism, whether from the pulpit, talk radio, or publishing, is now punishable by huge fines and years of imprisonment. In America, ADL is lobbying Congress for passage of its Orwellian federal anti-hate bill, "The Local Law Enforcement Enhancement Act" (LLEEA). LLEEA purports to only give the federal government power to put down violent hate crimes in the states. Actually, it destroys states rights and law enforcement, setting up a bias-motivation justice system like Canada’s. (See, "New Hate Bill: Obituary for Talk Radio")
Under Canada’s hate crimes tribunal system, evidence of bias against members of federally protected groups, plus plaintiffs' claims of being "traumatized" by such criticism, defines whether a hate crime has occurred. Truth is not accepted in this skewed justice system. Because such criteria are highly subjective, hate crimes cases are notoriously drawn out through trial and appeal, financially and emotionally exhausting Christians and free speech advocates. (See, "David Irving, like Galileo, Victim of 'Thought Crimes' Inquisition")
Steps to End "Cyber Hate" on the Internet
For the past five years, ADL/B’nai B’rith has been establishing a 55-nation European hate crimes bureaucracy, called the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). OSCE contains a special department dedicated to ending internet free speech. The International Network against Cyber Hate (INACH) is a think-tank of political, legal, communications and internet experts dedicated to finding ways to ban Internet criticism of Israel or matters Jewish. (See, "Global Hate Crimes Gestapo Being Created")
Yet INACH faces a difficult problem. Many nations have not yet adopted ADL hate laws. Also, the internet remains vigorously free, bursting with creative, unrestrained powers. For the present, OSCE agenda must content itself to:
- Work to establish hate laws worldwide. ADL's ultimate intention is to create a global network, bringing everyone under international hate laws jurisdiction. To facilitate this, ADL persuaded Congress two years ago to establish an "Office of Global Anti-Semitism" in the U.S. State Department. Fourteen twisted criteria of anti-Semitism coming from a recent state department ADL report make Bible-believing Christians and critics of Israel into anti-Semites. ADL's next goal: Make such "anti-Semitic hate criminals" into "domestic terrorists," culpable under Homeland Security. (See, "The Real Motive Behind the 'Department of Global Anti-Semitism'")
- Punish satellite providers and nations which allow "cyber hate" into their countries.
- Create ‘hate-free’ internet zones, beginning in large sections of Europe.
- Punish and boycott broadcasters worldwide who allow ‘cyber hate’ in programming.
- Solicit, through toll free numbers, information about websites critical of homosexuality or matters Jewish.
Mega Phone and Cable Companies Threaten Free Internet
The second major threat to a free internet comes from the huge phone and cable monopolies, such as Verizon, Comcast, AT&T, and Bell South, whose phone and cable lines make the internet possible. Such phone giants are now committed to massive financial investment in order to combine all phone, internet, e-mail, and video transmission into unified ‘broadband’ communication ‘pipes’. These communication companies protest that Google, Yahoo, etc., as well as billions of internet users should no longer be allowed a relatively ‘free ride.’ Verizon and Comcast are spending millions lobbying Congress to deregulate the internet, allowing the phone and cable monopolies to commercialize and run it as a business. They desire ever-widening power to control not only the internet but all telecommunications.
If such consolidation happens, who will control the internet? Do we have clues concerning how such monopolies will respond to unpopular or politically incorrect ideas? Let’s consider two big giants of the telephone and cable industries: Verizon and Comcast.
A Closer Look at Those Who Want to Control the Internet
Verizon is the largest American wireless phone company. Its CEO is Ivan Seidenburg, Jewish. Seidenburg's internet bio claims he "champions diversity both within and outside” Verizon. What kind of ‘diversity’ is Seidenburg advocating? He serves on the board of directors of Viacom, the world’s largest communication empire, which also promotes a new cable network called "Gay TV."
In 2003, Seidenburg was feted at a fundraiser dinner for the UJA-Federation, helping raise 1.2 million dollars for this Jewish charity. He was given the Stephen J. Ross Award in honor of the deceased Jewish owner of Warner Bros. Communications. Warner Music, a division of Ross's company, is now corrupting the minds and morals of tens of millions of young people worldwide with ‘gangsta’ rap music. Gangsta rap utterly degrades women, encouraging teenage boys to rape the "bitches." Filled with unspeakable profanity, it also encourages violence against whites and even murder of police.
Among the ‘good old boys’ of the Jewish mega media attending this benefit was Edgar Bronfman, Jr., heir of the Seagram’s Liquor Empire. Bronfman owns Vivendi Universal which, merged with NBC, produced "The Book of Daniel" TV series mocking Jesus and the Christian family. (See, "Was the Talmud Behind NBC's 'Book of Daniel'?") Bronfman also owns Interscope Records, the largest producer of ‘gangsta’ rap in the world today.
Howard Stringer, Jewish CEO of Sony of America, was also in attendance with Seidenburg. Sony helped NBC create "The Book of Daniel," but even more damaging to Christianity, created The Da Vinci Code movie, portraying Christ as having had sexual relations with Mary Magdalene. (See, "The Jews Behind Da Vinci Code") Conspicuous at the UJA dinner was also Sumner Redstone (Murray Rothstein), Jewish head of the largest communications giant in the world, Viacom. Viacom, owner of CBS, produced the "The Mystery of Christmas" special last December, speculating that Jesus was a bastard. Viacom, a cable TV giant, also owns MTV, pumping rock and rap music into 210,000,000 homes. MTV’s blatant degeneracy is the dominant influence on youth between 12 and 24 in the world today, encouraging teenage rebellion, gratuitous sex, degradation of women, Satanism, the occult, etc.
Comcast: Jewish Communications Giant
Another Jewish communication monopoly lobbying for internet control is Comcast, the largest cable TV network in America. Twice the size of AOL/Time Warner, Comcast was founded by Jewish Ralph Roberts with his son Brian, now CEO. The "respect for diversity" of both Robertses has deeply pleased liberal Jewry. Ralph Roberts was honored by the ADL with its Americanism Award. The Simon Wiesenthal Center, also a powerful advocate of homosexuality, awarded him their Lifetime Achievement Award. Son Brian received the Humanitarian Award from the Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance, for his "great integrity" for being "intolerant of intolerance." Jeffrey Katzenburg of DreamWorks, presiding at the Wiesenthal Awards ceremony presented a silver menorah to Brian Roberts, saying, “I don’t know anyone who is more connected to his [Jewish] heritage.”
Do the owners of Verizon and Comcast sound like trustworthy custodians of the internet? Both ADL and the Wiesenthal Center are bastions of Jewish anti-Christian activism. For Ralph and Brian Roberts to receive accolades from them means Comcast has satisfied liberal Judaism's criteria of "tolerance" - meaning tolerance of homosexuality and intolerance of Christian "homophobia."
Clearly, the Jewish leaders of Verizon and Comcast circulate within the highest levels of evil Jewish media leadership. While the same cannot be proven about the leaders of AT&T or Bell South, it is virtually certain that Verizon and Comcast, if granted control of the internet, will assist ADL in its desire to end "cyber hate" worldwide.
Time for Action
If a free internet is to be preserved, it is vital that all who love free speech protest NOW to the U.S. Senate. The House of Representatives, buckling under phone and cable pressure, recently passed legislation (HR 5252) appeasing the big phone and cable companies. The Senate will also succumb unless all lovers of free speech bombard all members of the Senate with protests.
At www.truthtellers.org are listed names of all 100 members of the U.S. Senate. Call toll free at 888-355-3588 or 866-340-9281. Give senators this simple message: "Please do not allow the internet to be commercialized by the phone and cable companies. Keep the net neutral."
After giving this message to the first senator on the list, don't hang up. Ask to be transferred to the next senator and so on. In about two hours you will have delivered a powerful message to the entire U.S. Senate that you will not stand for an end of free speech on the information superhighway.
