For the first time, after more than 35 thousand tweets, Twitter has locked my account. Why? Because I told the truth about radical Islam and I told the truth about the slaughter of Christians in Nigeria. How did this violate Twitter’s guidelines?
On Sunday, my article appealing to Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari was posted on different sites. It was titled, “President Buhari, Please Stop the Muslim Slaughter of Nigerian Christians.” A subtitle used on one site added, “Muslim herdsmen are massacring their Christian neighbors, and the Nigerian government refuses to act.”
My initial tweet announced the article and urged Christians to share it, stating: “I don’t often do this, but this is an urgent matter. Christians are being slaughtered in Nigeria — babies hacked up; children brutalized; women raped; people burned alive — while the Muslim govt. does nothing (or worse). PLEASE read and share.”
As of this writing, it was retweeted 1,248 times and liked 737 times, and the article itself has been shared thousands of times.
The whole purpose of the article was to alert the international community to the atrocities being experienced by these Nigerian Christians, with the hope that with more awareness, pressure would come on President Buhari, himself a Muslim, to stand and act. (Many accuse him of being complicit in the slaughter.)
On my AskDrBrown Facebook page, Nigerian Christians shared some of their own horror stories. It was heartbreaking to read.
One man posted, “Thanks for speaking out on behalf of the Christians in Nigeria. The mainstream media seems to be quiet and no one seem to talk about it. Truthfully, the future of Nigeria’s Christians looks potentially nightmarish with the level of calculated killings across the country.”
Another wrote, “Sadly so. Am a Nigerian christian and I don’t feel safe to travel to the north eastern of Nigerian because of presence of Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen, kidnapping and killing innocent Christians and the name of Islam. And our government is handling the issue with kid gloves.”
But on Twitter, an internet war broke out between some Nigerians accusing me of lying and spreading fake news and other Nigerians backing every word I said. In support, one man posted: “I can furnish you with pictures of babies and women being hacked to death. This is not even an argument. Whoever is defending these ills is obviously part of the illZ be assured that paid bots on this media will vigorously defend the horrible negligence of this administration.”
Another posted a map from Amnesty Nigeria documenting the slaughter of Christians at the hands of (Muslim) Fulani herdsmen. The tragic facts are undeniable.
I responded forcefully to those denying the slaughter, or claiming both Muslims and Christians were being killed equally, or that this was entirely political and not religious at all.
To one I wrote, “??? Muslims are slaughtering Christians. It’s outright religious butchering. That’s the truth, regardless of what the local media tells you.”
