Free Speech and Free Society Under Attack

More hostile action – this time against a parody that went viral on the Internet after branding the Mavi Marmara the Islamist stunt that it was:

As Israel went offline for the Jewish sabbath, YouTube removed most versions of Latma’s hit parody song We Con the World. If you try to access the song on YouTube you receive the notification:

This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Warner/ Chappell Music, Inc. .

Copyright experts we advised with before posting the song told us in no uncertain terms that we were within our rights to use the song because we did so in accordance with the Fair Use Doctrine. The Fair Use Doctrine, copied and pasted below from the US Copyright Office stipulates that it is legal and permissible to use copyrighted material under the fair use doctrine for purposes of parody.

Paypal Cuts Off Atlas: Truth is the New Hate Speech

Pamela Geller:

The little money that Atlas generates (I have no large donors) is about to be cut off. Apparently the jihad is hard at work trying to kill free speech (and the bus ads and the 9111 no mosque movement) from making its way to those in pursuit of truth. Paypal contributions helps  pays for bus ads, rallies, live coverage (everything) and I so much as said so when asked repeatedly by the press who paid for the bus ads. Readers do and did.

Paypal is calling Atlas a “hate” site and will close my account if I do not remove the paypal option from my website. Accurate reporting and news is hate.

Truth is the new hate speech:

Please email or call paypal and let them know Atlas Shrugs is a news site and political blog. I am not responsible for the bad news in the world. I just report.

Great, another lawsuit. Want to make a contribution to my fight?

Mail a check to Pamela Geller, PO Box 121, 1040 1st Avenue, NY NY 10022.  Until I beat those pathetic Paypal pussies. Unbelievable.

  1. FOR LIBERTY’S SAKE!

    THE FLAME OF FREEDOM SPEAKS, THE FLAME OF FREEDOM WITHIN EACH HEART.
    THE FLAME OF FREEDOM SAITH UNTO ALL: COME APART NOW AND BE A SEPARATE AND CHOSEN PEOPLE, ELECT UNTO GOD.
    MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE CHOSEN THEIR ELECTION WELL, MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE DETERMINED TO CAST THEIR LOT IN WITH THE IMMORTALS.
    THESE ARE THEY WHO HAVE SET THEIR TEETH WITH DETERMINATION, WHO HAVE SAID, WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP, WE WILL NEVER TURN BACK, WE WILL NEVER SUBMIT.

    IMPEACH PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, OR ELSE THINK MAO, STALIN, HITLER AND MOHAMMED.

    Sincerely,

  2. I really hope – I am sure – Pamela will find another way to get the payments through via another channel than the truthless PayPal. Btw, does the Pal stand for Gaza?

    There must be ways to sort this out for the better of peace and justice. The good forces will be with us!

    Best of luck
