BLIP.TV CENSORS AMERICAN LIFE LEAGUE; SHILLS FOR BILL MAHER

BLIP.TV CENSORS AMERICAN LIFE LEAGUE; SHILLS FOR BILL MAHER
American Life League's entire blip.tv account, including a video clip of Bill Maher's hate speech, deleted

WASHINGTON, D.C. (25 April 2008) — Blip.tv removed a video clip of Bill Maher slandering Pope Benedict XVI and the Catholic Church from American Life League’s account and then removed the entire account. Thousands of viewers visiting FireBillMaher.com were thus unable to see the offending footage for about an hour before the clip was reposted from a YouTube account.

“By deleting our entire account after first removing our video of Bill Maher's hate-filled rant, blip.tv made its agenda clear,” said Judie Brown, president of American Life League. “But the reason behind their agenda may have something to do with their very lucrative contract with Time Warner-owned CNN.”

Blip.tv entered into a high-dollar contract with CNN in 2006 to run CNN’s citizen journalism section, CNN Exchange. CNN, in turn, is owned by Time Warner, which also owns HBO. Maher’s program, Real Time with Bill Maher, is carried on HBO.

“Google-sponsored YouTube censored one of our videos a few months ago because it exposed Planned Parenthood’s plan to exploit young people,” said Brown. “Now blip.tv, which is closely tied to Time Warner, is censoring American Life League because we are calling for Bill Maher to be fired.”

American Life League’s web site www.FireBillMaher.com contains the clip of Maher’s three-minute-plus rant in which he said Pope Benedict XVI “used to be a Nazi” and described him as the leader of a “child-abusing religious cult.” The site also features a petition to have Maher fired, a call for HBO subscribers to cancel their subscriptions until Maher is fired and a time line of Maher’s long history of anti-Catholic hate speech.

“Given the thousands of HBO subscription cancellations our petition signers are reporting to us, Time Warner is clearly feeling the heat,” said Brown.

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Inventor of mRNA Vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD: "'Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance 'under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,' to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order'"

T his is what the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD himself, reported about the vaccines: Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination." [https://mobile.twitter.com/RWMaloneMD/status/1462194727407730693]   Moreover, he goes even further and is quoting Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò's call for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance:   Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance “under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,” to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order." youtube.com Abp.
