The Gatestone Institute sent me an interesting email about the European Union implementing new censorship rules causing their sources and supporters to loose Social Internet accounts. Why? Because organizations like the Gatestone Institute reports the truth about Islam as well as Islam’s affect inside Western nations promoting immigration of Muslim refugees.
As is typical of these kind of emails from any organization their central purpose is for fund raising. Nevertheless, the arm twisting perpetrated by the European Union to hush critics complaining about the crimes of Muslim refugees. These refugees are not only committing acts of terrorism in Europe but also have started a rape epidemic across the pond. You may or may not have heard about this rape epidemic. Sadly, even the Mainstream Media (MSM) in America has little interest in highlighting this nefarious epidemic of Muslims against indigenous Europeans. It is sad because the American Press has Constitutionally protected Rights in reporting the truth that apparently European Press outlets are feeling EU restrictions in getting the truth out. Indeed, one can go to jail in Europe for telling the truth about Islam or the religion’s Muslim adherents committing crimes nearly at will. The EU government apparatus calls such reporting and opinions as Hate Speech punishable by fines or jail time or both.
The Gatestone Institute email focuses on the plight of its Swedish expert Ingrid Carlqvist (Greater detail in Wikipedia-Sweden – For English translation Google Translate works well). The reason is Carlqvist hosts an about five-minute video on how this Muslim refugee rape epidemic is affecting Sweden. Her Youtube video was pulled in Europe and her Facebook account was cancelled without explanation.
Ingrid Carlqvist Swedish Journalist that Multiculturalists Hate
This censorship is a form of persecution you would think the Western world would have abandoned after the despotism of WWII Nazis and Cold War Communists. Apparently Multicultural Socialism has hampered European governing elites’ memory of how despotism breeds mistrust of government.
So below is the Gatestone Institute’s fund raising email that has very disheartening info in it about individual Liberty. Personally I don’t have a problem with donating to the Gatestone Institute, but don’t feel pressured to do so. (I wouldn’t mind a few bucks tossed my way via my PayPal account I use for blogging.) Carlqvist video entitled “Sweden’s Migrant Rape Epidemic” is at the end of the email. Don’t allow Europe’s Multiculturalism to become that restrictive in America. At least right now America is still a land where WE THE PEOPLE hold legislators, Governors and POTUS accountable via our voting system.
CENSORED: Facebook deletes a Gatestone author’s page!

Dear Friend of Gatestone,
On Tuesday, the European Union (EU) announced a new online speech code to be enforced by four major tech companies, including Facebook and YouTube.
On Wednesday, Facebook deleted the account of Ingrid Carlqvist, Gatestone’s Swedish expert.
It’s no coincidence.
Ingrid had posted our latest video to her Facebook feed — called “Sweden’s Migrant Rape Epidemic.” As you can see, Ingrid calmly lays out the facts and statistics, all of which are meticulously researched.
It’s a video version of this research paper that Gatestone published last year. The video has gone viral — racking up more than 80,000 views in its first two days.
But the EU is quite candid: it is applying a political lens to their censorship, and it now has teams of political informants — with the Orwellian title of “trusted reporters” — to report any cases of “xenophobia” or “hate speech” to Facebook for immediate deletion.
It’s political censorship. It’s outrageous. And it’s contrary to our western values of free speech, political freedom and the separation of mosque and state. But in another way, it’s a tremendous compliment — the world’s censors think that Gatestone Institute’s work is important enough and persuasive enough that it needs to be silenced.
Well, not if we have anything to say about it. We raised such a ruckus about this attack that the Swedish media started reporting on Facebook’s heavy-handed censorship. It backfired, and Facebook went into damage-control mode. They put Ingrid’s account back up — without any explanation or apology. Ironically, their censorship only gave Ingrid’s video more attention.
Facebook and the EU have backed down — for today. But they’re deadly serious about stopping ideas they don’t like. They’ll be back.
So what should we do? I think there is only one thing we can do: continue to produce our well-researched reports, and to expand our online presence with even more videos!
As you know, just last week we started releasing high-quality original videos, hosted by our Gatestone experts. Our first four videos have already been watched by more than 150,000 people!
It’s a great way to make our research come alive — and as Ingrid’s viral video shows, to get our ideas noticed.
So I want Gatestone’s talented experts to make more videos — a lot more! We need to win the battle of ideas. Can you help?
Each video costs us approximately $500 to produce. But as Facebook’s attack on us shows, they’re worth every penny.
Will you help us do that?
If you can sponsor one video, for $500, that would be a powerful statement of your support for our ideas — and your resistance to the Facebook/EU censorship. But even a $50 gift would be so helpful — if just 100 Gatestone supporters chipped in $50, that’s enough to produce ten more powerful video presentations — any one of which could go viral too!
Facebook and the European Union thought they could shut us up. I want to prove them wrong. Please click here, to help us fight back. Do it for Ingrid!
President and Founder, Gatestone Institute
P.S. Click here to see all of our YouTube videos so far. I want to do so many more, and with more of our experts. It’s a great way to spread our message, especially in the age of short, shareable videos. Please consider contributing $50, $500 or whatever you can!
P.P.S. We’ve never been censored this way before. I think it means we’re making a difference. What do you think?

Where did peaceful, low-crime Sweden go? Why does Sweden now have the second-highest number of rapes in the world, after only Lesotho? Here is Ingrid Carlqvist of is Gatestone Institute…
