Michael Brown on Should Antisemites Be Censored for Hate Speech?

In case you haven’t heard, TruNews, an evangelical, antisemitic, online news channel, has been permanently banned from YouTube for “hate speech.” Is this something we should applaud, especially as Christian conservatives? Or this is something that should concern us, since the charge of “hate speech” has been frequently wielded against us, albeit without merit?

To be sure, TruNews has spread dangerous, antisemitic lies, including the claim that Jews will soon take over America and start slaughtering millions of Christians. To quote Rick Wiles, the founder of TruNews, directly, “The very people who crucified Christ are going to be our masters if we don’t do something about it.”

Yes, this is what an “evangelical Christian” newscaster is spewing from his newsroom day after day, using the internet to disseminate his misguided views.

This kind of unfounded, unhinged rhetoric could lead unstable people to commit violent acts against the Jewish community. The two synagogue shootings are stark reminders of this.

That’s why I have personally confronted TruNews on a number of occasions, including articles (see here and here), videos (see here and here), books (see here and here) and privately. I have also invited Rick Wiles onto my radio show, offered to go on his show and challenged him to a public debate.

All my offers have been declined.

And so, rather than change their tune, the TruNews leaders have entrenched themselves even more deeply. In fact, after the vote-count fiasco in Iowa, TruNews claimed that “Israel” was behind the mess. I kid you not. TruNews even claimed that this was part of a ploy to get Pete Buttigieg elected, since “Israel” wanted a gay man in the White House.

It is for good reason that major Jewish news outlets reported on YouTube’s banning of TruNews, including HaAretz, the Jerusalem Post, the Forward, the Times of Israel, the Algemeiner and more.
