The Hatefulness of Twitter

Paul Derengowski, ThM

Yesterday, I was informed that the CAPro account over at Twitter had been suspended.

Apparently, a couple of Muslims did not like a couple of questions I asked in retort to the nonsense they were posting about Islam.

This all occurred over a month ago (October 20) and unless a person takes a snapshot of ever post created, then entities, like Twitter, make sure you have no frame of reference, whereby you may counter the accusations, because there is no context.

Nevertheless, judging by the comments by Twitter officials over the posts in question, charges of “hateful conduct” abound.

Of course, neither the Twitter officials, nor the complaining Muslim(s), are willing to actually look into or ask about the reasons for the content of the post.

“It’s just hateful. You’re guilty. You’re gone.”

That’s the way of the hateful though. They do not want to hear the truth. In fact, all they want to do is silence opposition.

To them, truth is a one way street, and if you don’t happen to be on the same street, with them driving the vehicle, headed for a dead end, then you’re the problem.

The reality is, they are the problem. They set up these social websites to allegedly exchange ideas, but then certain factions, like the Muslims, come along and start changing the landscape, so that only they can be heard.

It is their dawah duty to suppress opposing voices, because in the Muslim mind no one needs to be heard but Allah and his spokespersons.

Who cares that those with an opposing voice have read the very book that the Muslims want them to read and find comments like, “So, when you meet (in fight—Jihad in Allah’s Cause) those who disbelieve, smite (their) necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them…” (The Noble Qur’an 47:4)?

The dupes and idiots for the Muslim cause have already made up their minds that Islam is a “religion of peace,” because the Muslim says so.

Who cares that those with an opposing voice have read the Verse of the Sword, which states, “Then when the Sacred Months (the 1st, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in every ambush” (The Noble Qur’an 9:5)?

Islam is not a religion of compulsion. Why? Because the Muslim says so.

Who cares that those with an opposing voice have read the Qur’anic command to, “Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (The Noble Qur’an 9:29).

Islam is about world peace and assimilation with all other faiths. Why? Because the Muslim says so.

So, it goes without saying, if the Muslim complains about someone bringing up the very things that make him or her out to be a liar, then who is at fault?

Why, it is the person citing the Qur’an, the Hadith, or Sunnah. It’s not the Muslim. Why? Because the Muslim says so.

Clearly, Twitter officials are not going to get a concession out of me or CAPro. As far as I am concerned, they can just close the account.

I am not going to be bullied by a bunch of religious bigots who are so disingenuous and fraudulent that they think that by bully tactics they will make me believe that Islam and the Qur’an are anything more than satanic contrivances full of the very hatred they wish to pin upon me and CAPro.

And being the satanic contrivances that they are, any and all who wish to defend them, in the manner that Twitter officials have chosen to suppress the truth in this case, are equally satanic.

Goodbye Twitter. You have your hypocritical, hateful reward.
