This past week, stories began to circulate of law enforcement raiding the homes of activists, making arrests, and warrants being issued in response to the growing conversation surrounding Jewish influence, over-representation, and ironically, their persecution of Americans who notice. At the same time this is happening, the supposed richest man alive, Elon Musk, continues to fail in his efforts to simply not practice censorship on his own platform, X, due to unrelenting pressure from Jewish Mob organizations and government officials.
On Wednesday, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement announced that with the help of the Florida Highway Patrol, they arrested a 48-year-old White man who displayed “antisemitic” banners and symbols on a bridge in Orlando. They also announced that there were currently three outstanding arrest warrants for additional activists who live out of state and whose actions were in violation of newly enacted state law.
FDLE Commissioner Mark Glass said, “We want to thank Governor DeSantis for his support of law enforcement and for the signing of HB 269, giving us the tools to arrest this hate-filled radical… This activity will not be tolerated in the greatest state in the country, Florida.”
The Jewish Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Executive Director Dave Kerner added, “Florida is a law-and-order state. Today’s arrest demonstrates Florida’s commitment to protecting residents from attention-seeking extremists… On behalf of Colonel Gary L. Howze, II, and the nearly 2,000 FHP State Troopers who enforce our state law 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, thank you Governor DeSantis, for working to rid this state of intimidation, vitriol and hate directed towards people of faith, and for empowering law enforcement to do the same.”
Jewish Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg complained that while the bill does allow prosecutors to file more severe charges against activists who distribute antisemitic flyers, it fails to make it illegal for activists to organize or fundraise, “The ones who are organizing, the law doesn’t cover them.” He added, “A similar law was on the books years ago and it was thrown out by the courts.” Which makes sense, considering the law is unconstitutional.
Representative Mike Caruso, who introduced HB 269, doesn’t care and told reporters that he hoped state attorneys could go after those who organize activism efforts by tying them into a conspiracy to commit a crime, and not only arrest activists for exercising their right to free speech but on charges of conspiring to do so.
Last month, an activist pleaded guilty to three separate criminal charges for distributing “antisemitic” flyers in Palm Beach. His flyers were called litter. The State Attorney’s Office said they were also prosecuting four others in “littering” cases. The message is clear. As the Jewish State Attorney Dave Aronberg said in a statement, “Anyone who disseminates hate here will be held accountable.”
Your average person will hear something like this and not think much of it, given the framing. Who would want some maniac coming into their neighborhood to terrorize residents and stir hatred? That’s how the media puts it. Any criticism of Jews or anyone who happens to be Jewish is considered hate, and trying to express that is violence.
In reality, the flyers he was distributing were entirely factual, included no slurs, no “hate symbols”, as if such a thing were real, no threats, and were distributed randomly for educational purposes.
When it comes to online censorship, the First Amendment argument has been a little harder to make. People will often say that these social media companies are private companies and can do whatever they want. There is some truth to this. These arrests are not that. This is American citizens, in real life, distributing literature to their neighbors that expose power and influence in the United States, whether it be in relation to the government, the media, certain social and political movements or anything else, and then being arrested and thrown in jail by that same government, and then slandered by that same media.
This is precisely the type of speech the First Amendment was meant to protect. Leading up to and during the Revolution, famous pamphlets such as John Dickinson’s Letters from a Farmer in Pennsylvania and Thomas Paine’s Common Sense gave voice to the complaints of the colonists in a very similar fashion. Patriots formed groups to distribute literature expressing revolutionary sentiment.
Men like Benjamin Franklin and Paul Revere were among those who created artwork and propaganda pieces printed in flyers and pamphlets, and distributed throughout the colonies. Their flyers even went as far as to call their neighbors to arms. Nobody is trying anything like that right now, yet here we are.
However, while arresting activists for displaying banners and distributing flyers is a blatant violation of our rights, as it turns out, so is the censorship of our speech online. Elon Musk’s struggle to allow free speech on X has exposed for all to see how social media censorship works.
We often assumed in the past that the social media companies themselves were solely to blame for censoring our speech, and while in many cases it was just some San Francisco liberal who worked at Twitter making the decision to ban us or remove our content, we’ve since learned that it’s not always this simple, and that even if a social media company wanted to allow free speech, it wouldn’t be as easy as tweaking the terms of service or unbanning everyone, for several reasons.
The first and easiest to see is the federal government directly putting pressure on these companies. Last year, we learned that Facebook had set up a special portal for government officials to request the suppression or removal of content and users. The Department of Homeland Security even created a “Disinformation Governance Board.”
NBC News reported that representatives from tech giants, including Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit, met monthly with DHS officials and representatives of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency leading up to the 2020 election to discuss how the platforms would manage political “misinformation.”
Another challenge is the way social media companies make money. In 2022, 90% of Twitter, now X’s revenue came from advertising. This is where Jewish organizations like the ADL come in. They put pressure on those advertisers and kill your revenue if you don’t run your company how they tell you to.
Elon Musk claimed in a series of posts that, “Since the acquisition, The @ADL has been trying to kill this platform by falsely accusing it & me of being anti-Semitic… Our US advertising revenue is still down 60%, primarily due to pressure on advertisers by @ADL (that’s what advertisers tell us), so they almost succeeded in killing X/Twitter!”
In November, the official ADL account posted that, “Whatever happens to @Twitter, new social platforms need to center trust and safety from the outset, or risk being subject to the same fate. In the meantime, @elonmusk has put Twitter on deathwatch. It didn’t have to be this way.”
With Musk now threatening to sue the ADL, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stepped in and will fly to California to have a talk with him on Monday. Even our own Department of Justice recently began filing lawsuits against Musk and his companies, accusing him of racist hiring practices in as Elon put it, “yet another case of weaponization of the DOJ for political purposes.”
Where it gets even more interesting, is where the ADL and similar groups get the money to do all this. We’ve all heard stories of the ADL’s tactics, sometimes purely meant to destroy their enemies but often quite profitable. A politician, athlete, celebrity, company or organization says or does something that could be misconstrued as antisemitism and the ADL pounces.
They accuse them of antisemitism and pressure their advertisers, sponsors, or whoever it is that they can use to hurt them financially. They get them banned or censored on social media. The news media gives them all the airtime they need to go on TV and in the press to attack them, and paint them however they like. They work with banking institutions, payment processors, web hosting services, you name it. They even work with federal and local law enforcement, prosecutors and judges if it gets there. Their influence gives them the power to truly “cancel” someone. Rarely does the wrath of the Jewish ADL calm before groveling apologies, a trip to the Holocaust museum, and a large donation.
But this is chump change to the ADL. They’re just hitting some stupid goy for a quick buck, some justification messaging, and to silence a critic of Jews. It reminds ADL supporters of the necessity of their work and gets more people to donate more money. In 2021, the ADL reported $238 million in assets.
In April of 2020, the ADL received $7.4 million from the government in PPP bailout funds at a time when small businesses were forced to shut down, many never reopening, and millions of Americans were out of work. Back in March, less than two weeks after the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, the ADL had demanded that Congress give $60 billion to them and other Jewish organizations like Agudath Israel of America, Haddassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America and the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America as “COVID relief.”
In December of 2022, the ADL published a press release titled, “ADL Welcomes Key Federal Investments to Fight Antisemitism and Other Forms of Hate in Fiscal Year 2023 Omnibus.” The ADL welcomed the passage of the bill which, “included funding for several crucial programs to combat antisemitism, protect against extremism, and fight hate in all forms at unprecedented levels.” Well over $400 million in funding, to be more specific.
Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO said, “At a time when antisemitism and extremism continue to threaten the safety of our communities and undermine our democratic values, funding for these programs can provide critical security and strengthen civil rights. We will continue to work with the Administration and Congress to ensure that full funding for crucial programs to fight hate continues to be appropriately funded in the coming fiscal years.”
While the government shuts down our businesses and terrorizes us for making antisemitic comments online or distributing literature in person, it gives millions of our tax dollars to Jewish groups like the ADL and many others who can use extraconstitutional means to destroy our lives and force social media companies to censor us.
All this being said, newly enacted laws do not make it impossible to engage in IRL activism without breaking the law, and censorship does not make it impossible to deliver our message through the internet. In fact, the recent success of the #BanTheADL hashtag has served as a needed reminder of the kind of damage we can still do on the internet, where most of our activism used to take place before censorship pushed us into the streets, and also of the value of mainstream/normie oriented or purely online figures within the movement who a lot of us have begun to regard as do-nothings.
These attempts by the Jews to silence and destroy us will continue to expose Americans to Jewish power, and push us to become better, into the “next thing,” always finding new and more effective ways to reach, organize, and activate our people.
