Exposing the Zionist thought police on the internet will get you banned
It all started with national attention from a shocking You Tube video of Israelis and American Jews expressing their disdain for President Obama. The controversial video, hosted by Mondoweiss and produced by Max Blumenthal and Joseph Dana Philip Weiss, quickly went viral on the internet. Many American websites tried to ignore the video and other sites, like the Huffington Post went so far as censoring the video; citing it as “unnewsorthy.” The video took on a life of its own and soon the video makers were accused of being agenda driven, self-hating Jews, Israel bashers, stoking anti-Semitism, and even being anti-Semitic. Ultimately, the Zionist thought police said “enough” and amid great protest from Jewish peace activists, the video was removed. Blumenthal suspects a Jewish conspiracy:
Youtube has removed my video, “Feeling The Hate In Jerusalem,” on the baseless grounds that it contains “inappropriate content.” They have offered me no further explanation and have stonewalled my inquiries and attempts to rectify the situation. Thus they have censored a video that contains far less inflammatory content than thousands of video they are already hosting. Why? I won’t ascribe motives to Youtube I am unable to confirm, but it is clear there is an active campaign by right-wing Jewish elements to suppress the video by filing a flood of complaints with Youtube. At the same time these elements have attempted to paint me as a self-hating Jew determined to foment anti-Semitism. I answered this last charge to Ha’aretz (read the barely coherent article here) last week: “I have received death threats from people, mainly ones calling me a self-hating Jew. I am self-hating, but my self-hatred has nothing to do with me being Jewish.”
On June 7, 2009 I made a YouTube response video to “Feeling the Hate in Jeruslam”, where I attempted to expose the outright hypocrisy of Zionist thought police, the Anti-Defamation League. I posted it here at Under The Radar Media and What Really Happened, along with other alternative websites and blogs linked to my video, giving it a fair amount attention although nowhere near as many views as Blumenthal’s version. On June 26, 2009 I received an e-mail from YouTube which explained that they had received a complaint about my response video. Here is the e-mail I received from:

If you’ve seen my video then you’ll know that the claim the claim of violating someones privacy is, at least in my view, is patently untrue. But the censorship didn’t stop there. I decided to post the video at a very mainstream political forum where I have been a member for years. Within minutes my post was removed and by the next day I was banned and was politely asked not to return.
And twelve hours later…
