“Truth is the new hate speech”

“Truth is the new hate speech” is a political saying that has been printed on many images. The article “ATLAS BLOCKED: TRUTH IS THE NEW HATE SPEECH” was published on the blog Atlas Shrugs, by blogger Pamela Geller, on March 20, 2009.
The saying means that “truth” is normally a defense for one’s speech, but in the new political climate, even the “truth” can be considered “hate speech.”
Wikipedia: Pamela Geller
Pamela Geller (born 1957/1958) is an American political activist, blogger and commentator who is known for her anti-Muslim views and activism.
She stirred controversy in 2006 for reprinting controversial cartoons of Muhammad on her blog. She came to prominence in 2010 for leading the campaign against the proposed Park51 Islamic community center, which Geller called the “Ground Zero Mega Mosque”. Since 2013, she has stirred controversy by buying anti-Muslim ads on public transit networks in various cities. The British government barred Geller’s entry into the UK in 2013, citing her anti-Muslim activism, and saying her presence would “not be conducive to the public good”. She has been targeted in two separate assassination attacks by Islamic fundamentalists. She is the president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (also known as Stop Islamization of America), an anti-Islam group which she co-founded with Robert Spencer.

Dear Pamela,
I love your site. I usually scan through the Conservative news fist thing in the morning when I get to work. Today, while having a cup of coffee, I tried to load your site I got: I found other conservative sites were also blocked. Of course Moveon.org & DailyKos were not blocked.
What was most disturbing was the reason your site was blocked. The notice said Hate/Discrimination.
I thought you should know about this even though I’m not sure what can be done about it.

This profoundly offensive catchphrase was coined by the well-known birther and “counter-Jihadist” Pamela Geller back in June, 2010, when Pay Pal temporarily suspended her website Atlas Shrugs’ account for violations of Acceptable Use Policy (specifically the “promotion of hate, violence, racial intolerance or the financial exploitation of a crime”). Geller revived it as a rallying cry in the fall of 2011, when a series of hotels abruptly declined to host her anti-Islam conferences; she and a number of her followers bravely Tweeted it in support of Rush Limbaugh after his troubles with Sandra Fluke a few weeks ago. Sometimes, Tourette-like, it appears on Facebook status updates and Twitter feeds for no discernible reason at all. I usually see it when it does, because I have been tracking the phrase “The New Hate”(the title of my new book).
