    Pro-Life Site Being Targeted By Leftist Deplatforming Campaign

    Pro-Life Site Being Targeted By Leftist Deplatforming Campaign


    October 28, 2018

    Cassandra Fairbanks


    The pro-life website LifeSite News is asking for prayers as they are being targeted by a leftist deplatforming campaign and have been alerted that their site will be removed by their hosting company.


    According to an urgent notice on their website, their web developer was up all night working on temporary measures to keep the site online after they recieved the notice on Saturday evening.






    However, this is only a temporary solution. We are currently looking for a web-hosting company that will not cave to threats of this kind. We are also exploring legal options to combat Adam Flanders’ campaign of harassment as well as our web-hosting company’s extraordinary decision to give us 12 hours to move our site late on a Saturday evening. We will keep our readers posted,” the notice read.


    Their web hosting company had emailed them at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday evening saying,“we are implementing our ‘SUSPENSION OF SERVICES’ clause…and giving you 12 hours notice to move your web site operations off of our servers…” LifeSite says that they had received no previous notice about the decision.


    LifeSite is just the latest victim of repeated campaigns from the left to have right-wing voices removed from the internet and the digital public square.


    Earlier this month their Twitter account was also temporarily bannedfrom the platform over an article they tweeted in 2014.


    A petition calling for LifeSite’s Twitter account to be reinstated surpassed 8,000 signatures.

    URGENT: LifeSite is under attack (UPDATED)



    Help LifeSite fight this attack!


    Update, 11:55 a.m. EST: Our web developer was up all night implementing temporary measures to keep our site online even if our current web-hosting company followed through on its threat to shut down our services. We are extremely grateful for his hard work on a Saturday night. However, this is only a temporary solution. We are currently looking for a web-hosting company that will not cave to threats of this kind. We are also exploring legal options to combat Adam Flanders' campaign of harassment as well as our web-hosting company's extraordinary decision to give us 12 hours to move our site late on a Saturday evening. We will keep our readers posted.


    October 27, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – This is extremely urgent. I need to inform you that LifeSite just received an email at 8:30 p.m. EST from our web-hosting company alerting us that they will be taking our website down within 12 hours, if not sooner.
    They wrote: “we are implementing our ‘SUSPENSION OF SERVICES’ clause...and giving you 12 hours notice to move your web site operations off of our servers..."


    We received absolutely no forewarning whatsoever about this decision.


    The company told LifeSite it is acting in response to a months-long campaign of complaints against us by Adam Flanders. Flanders is a convicted sex abuser and homosexual activist who is angered over our reports exposing him and his past. As LifeSite recently reported, he has already succeeded in taking down other pro-family websites by targeting their server companies.


    Flanders’ latest complaint is focused on the absurd allegation that LifeSite “has been implicated in a violent hate crime against a gay man and Catholic church,” and that we “instigated property damage and a physical assault.”


    Our web developer is scrambling right now to set up a possibly-needed temporary solution to keep the website live. However, we’re going to have to go through the ordeal and expense of moving server companies. We also intend to fight these attacks, which will carry significant legal costs.

    LifeSite is committed to continue reporting on Flanders and the entire anti-freedom homosexualist lobby.

    Please donate now to help us fight this attack on free speech.

    We also urge you to pray this issue is resolved quickly and smoothly.

    Their current host provider is Cloudflare. I do not know if this is the one removing them or not.

    VICTORY: Twitter restores LifeSite account after thousands protest online



    TELL SOCIAL MEDIA: Stop silencing conservatives!

    Sign the petition here



    October 19, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Twitter has backed down and unlocked LifeSiteNews’ Twitter account, less than 24 hours after claiming a factual analysis of homosexual health data was “hateful conduct.” Their decision to unlock our account comes after more than 7,500 LifeSite supporters signed a petition demanding our account be restored along with massive backlash online.


    Yesterday afternoon, Twitter locked LifeSiteNews staff out of posting to or otherwise accessing our @LifeSite account over a 2014 article by Dr. Gerard M. Nadal, a molecular biologist and microbiologist who is also president and CEO of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer.


    Citing data from mainstream sources such as the Centers for Disease Control, a then-recent New York Times report, and a 2006 study in the journal AIDS Behavior, Dr. Nadal’s piece analyzed media coverage of a then-recent CDC report on sexually-transmitted diseases. He concluded that the rise of STDs among homosexuals was primarily due to factors such as increased unprotected sex and 60% of homosexual men failing to disclose their symptoms or status to sex partners.


    On Thursday, Twitter notified LifeSiteNews it was locking our account because a tweet displaying the story’s neutral, factual headline violated “rules against hateful conduct” and “promote[d] violence against, threaten[ed], or harass[ed] other people on the basis of [...] sexual orientation.”


    “This total intolerance for even reporting government health dept statistics that reveal the health dangers of homosexual activity betrays what Peter Thiel, himself a homosexual, previously called a totalitarian mindset in Silicon Valley,” said Steve Jalsevac, co-founder and president of LifeSiteNews. “This is getting dangerous for our democracy since a free press is one of the basic and necessary foundations for a genuinely democratic society.”


    LifeSiteNews refused to delete the tweet, and instead appealed the decision.


    “Within the article are quotes from sources that are deemed credible and reputable, such as Bloomberg and the CDC report,” LifeSiteNews explained to Twitter. Rather than promoting violence, threats, or harassment against anyone, “the tweet links to an article that is simply an informative analysis of the CDC's own 2012 findings.”


    “We believe this violation is a mistake and request that our account be unlocked effective immediately,” LifeSiteNews told Twitter.


    LifeSiteNews also launched a petition to protest the social media giant’s latest act of censorship, which amassed more than 7,300 signatures in just 18 hours. Numerous pro-life, pro-family, and conservative voices spoke out, as well.




    Notably, LifeSiteNews also received support from self-described homosexuals who argued that knowledge about health risks saves lives:

    On Friday, Twitter Support notified LifeSiteNews that it has reversed the lock.

    “We have restored your account, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused,” the message read. “Twitter takes reports of violations of the Twitter Rules very seriously. After reviewing your account, it looks like we made an error.”


    “It’s good to see that Twitter corrected its error in this instance, but the corporation needs to undertake major reform to prevent such ridiculous bans from occurring in the first place,” Steve Jalsevac said in response to the latest development. “They have been occurring far too frequently, revealing severe liberal bias by a significant number of Twitter staff assigned to monitor and make judgments on tweets.”

    Twitter has similarly restricted scores of conservative content on similargrounds, often reversing it after public backlash with similar comments about unexplained “errors.”

    “We should not have had to appeal what was clearly a totally wrong decision by whoever initiated the lock on our account,” Jalsevac argued.

    Several observers noted that yesterday’s incident comes just days after Twitter refused to delete a video posted by Minister Louis Farrakhan, in which the Nation of Islam leader calls Jews “termites.”


    A Twitter spokesman said that while the tweet constitutes “dehumanizing language,” an upcoming policy banning such content has not yet been implemented.

    Christian News Site ‘LifeSite’ Blacklisted by Web Host


    October 29, 2018

    Charlie Nash





    LifeSite, a Christian pro-life news outlet, was allegedly blacklisted by its web host and given just 12 hours to find another host the website, or risk being offline.


    “LifeSite just received an email at 8:30 p.m. EST from our web-hosting company alerting us that they will be taking our website down within 12 hours, if not sooner,” claimed LifeSite in a statement, Saturday. “We received absolutely no forewarning whatsoever about this decision.”

    “Our web developer is scrambling right now to set up a possibly-needed temporary solution to keep the website live. However, we’re going to have to go through the ordeal and expense of moving server companies,” the news outlet continued. “We also intend to fight these attacks, which will carry significant legal costs.”

    In an update made following the original statement, LifeSite added, “Our web developer was up all night implementing temporary measures to keep our site online even if our current web-hosting company followed through on its threat to shut down our services. We are extremely grateful for his hard work on a Saturday night. However, this is only a temporary solution. We are currently looking for a web-hosting company that will not cave to threats of this kind.”


    On its website, LifeSite describes itself as a “non-profit Internet service dedicated to issues of culture, life, and family,” launched by the pro-life Campaign Life Coalition in 1997, which “emphasizes the social worth of traditional Judeo-Christian principles but is also respectful of all authentic religions and cultures that esteem life, family and universal norms of morality.”

    LifeSite was not the only website blacklisted by its web host this week, with free speech social network Gab losing its web host Joyent late on Saturday and being given until just Monday morning to migrate to another host.


    On Saturday, Gab claimed the blacklisting could leave the social network offline for weeks, and as of writing, Gab is currently offline.


    “As we transition to a new hosting provider Gab will be inaccessible for a period of time. We are working around the clock to get Gab.com back online,” declared the social network in a statement. “Thank you and remember to speak freely.”
