Formerly Muslim woman suspended by Twitter.

Kathy Shaidle is fond of reminding us all that Conservatism needs its own internet infrastructure a lot more than it needs another news magazine. Here's another example of her being right:

[Shazia Hobbs], A Muslim apostate and high profile campaigner against both female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage has been suspended from micro-blogging platform Twitter, amidst a wider crackdown on right wing voices on the website, and other online platforms like Facebook.

Twitter users noticed the prolific writer and campaigner had vanished from the platform Friday. Hobbs had previously spoken at the Unite Against Hate 'Gays Against Sharia' march in Manchester, where she spoke out against Muslim rape gangs preying on young white girls.

What terrible thing did she do?

Speaking to Breitbart London, Ms. Hobbs confirmed she has been suspended indefinitely.
"It's absolutely disgusting," she told the website. "There was no reason given. Twitter would not tell me what tweets were in violation of their rules. They said it was because of 'harassment'.
"All I tweet about is the rape of Pakistani children by Pakistani men," she said.

Yep. A Pakistani woman is being censored by Twitter for calling out rapists from her own culture.


Question for the thoughtful among us: how long before Apple won't let Shazia Hobbs sell stuff at their app store? Facebook won't let her post? How long before Amazon won't carry her books? How long before Google takes her website off their search engine?

For that matter, how long before Google suspends the Phantom Soapbox for even mentioning Shazia Hobbs?
Oh, shut up Phantom! That'll never happen! Right? We'll see, I guess. Meanwhile, I'm keeping backups.

I assume you've heard about https://gab.ai being grabbed by the short & curlies by their domain registrar thanks to Daily Stormer sockpuppet "Andrew Anglin".

Meanwhile on WhatsApp...

I always wondered a little if the Internet being founded on DARPANET was going to be a problem. Starting to look like it will be.

We may end up running a true peer-to-peer web-mesh instead of the server/client model we're running now, just to beat the big telcos and government censors.

Oh well, the world makes bigger idiots, we make bigger bats to smack them with.
