There’s a website called “Canary Mission.” I don’t know who’s behind it. Nor, it seems, does anyone else. But I think it’s a great exercise in turning the tables on anti-Israel activists who have been ‘shaming’ people online for years.
Canary Mission says its aim is to “expose individuals and groups that are anti-Freedom, anti-American and anti-Semitic in order to protect the public and our democratic values.”
It seeks to do this by maintaining an online database, complete with pictures, biographies, Facebook posts, videos, and quotes from anti-Israel activists who are seemingly apoplectic that their public behaviour has become, well, even more public than it was before.
And while I’m kind of sad that political activism in both the United States and the United Kingdom has sunk to this level, it isn’t new, and thusly there shouldn’t be the outcry over it that there has been online.
The hard-left, combined with anti-Israel specialists, have been doing this to people of a pro-Israel, or right-wing persuasion for years now. I should know – they’ve done it to me.
From the shady Powerbase website, linked to the vile SpinWatch group, the left has habitually sought to ‘out’ and ‘shame’ those who don’t share its opinions, especially those who don’t share them vocally…
A Turkish English-language site is already whining about Islamophobia. Mind you, their article rants about more than just Canary Mission: it carries on about Pam Geller, Mohammed cartoons, Charlie Hebdo and so on.
