For the second time in a month, CAIR has managed to get get Wordpress to take down the web site Bare Naked Islam. See the update at the bottom of the post below.
You can keep up to date with what's happening with Bare Naked Islam by following BNI's Twitter feed.
Make no mistake: what's happening with this silencing of the voice of Bare Naked Islam could easily spread to silencing a wide range of voices on the web.
This morning, I posted the following at Infidel Bloggers Alliance:
We are living in Orwellian times.
A few days ago, I posted THIS at Infidel Bloggers Alliance: "The End Of Blogging?" SOPA looms. Its power to silence voices is nearly unlimited.
It's not farfetched to realize that our days of freedom of speech on the web are numbered.
Furthermore, I expect that 2012 will bring the closing of all sorts of web sites, particularly blogs that are controversial.
I won't quit speaking out until my blog is shuttered by the forces of silencing voices, until I'm in jail, or until I die. After all, I'm an old woman. I don't have much to lose, really. The life I loved ended when Mr. AOW had his crippling stroke in 2009.
But I doubt that younger folks feel the way that I do. And I can't blame them for feeling that way.
