Kay Wilson’s attack photo is not gratuitous gore

Twitter really doesn’t know what to do with itself. If you share this picture of my friend, taken days after two terrorists failed to murder her, on Twitter, they may suspend your account:

Wounds on the back of Kay Wilson following machete attack in 2010
Collect pictures of British woman Kay Wilson who was stabbed by Palestinian terrorists in Israel in 2010. Injuries. 13 machete wounds, bones splintered off into lungs, 30 compound fractures of rib cage, crushed sternum, dislocated shoulder, broken shoulder blade and 13 machete wounds in my lungs and diaphragm

The reason give by Twitter for suspending her account are:

Violating our rules against posting media depicting gratuitous gore.

You may not share excessively graphic media (e.g., severe injuries, torture). Exposure to gratuitous gore can be harmful, especially if the content is posted with intent to delight in cruelty or for sadistic pleasure.

I want to analyse this a bit deeper. When I first met Kay she was only just starting to talk about the terrorist attack that changed her life for ever. Reading her book “The Rage Less Traveled” filled in what she was going through at that time but suffice it to say, I didn’t see this particular picture of her wounds for a long time.

In fact, in the spring of 2016, a few weeks before the Brexit referendum in the UK, I remember a discussion with Kay about whether or not to allow the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper to publish the picture. Eventually Kay decided it was important and necessary. You can see the page from the newspaper with this picture inset bottom right.

It took courage to do that and you should probably know even more about how that picture came to be taken. Knowing Kay, in a way in which no AI and even no moderator at Twitter will ever be able to, I know that this picture is not “posted with intent to delight in cruelty or for sadistic pleasure”. But Twitter have set for themselves an almost impossible task of judging the intent of someone when they post a photograph!

Here’s the extract from Kay’s book that describes how this photograph was taken by a police forensic scientist. During this part, Kay is on serious pain medication and her narrative reflects how her mind was unable to focus and drifted off in all sorts of directions. I’m adding in an exclusive extract from her audio book.

This is an extract of Kay reading from her own Audio Book version of The Rage Less Traveled – Chapter 7 Page 58

I dream about a company of bald-headed dwarfs, who under the command of my dog Peanut plant sunflower seeds in the Negev Desert. It’s all very pleasant. When I wake up, there is a man with a bald head who has his face in my cleavage. 

Holding a small camera an inch from my chest, his breath tickles my skin. I stare at the specks of sweat on his shiny scalp, then look over at Nurse Olga fidgeting with the drips at the side of the bed. Her hair is pulled back tight. It resembles an onion. I love onions. I love how they feel all papery on the outside, and when the skin is peeled off, they become cool and hard. I can’t eat too many onions though, they make me burp. 

Nurse Olga adjusts the valves and chats away. “This gentleman is from the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Holon. Have you been to Holon, Kay? That’s where the Jewish Agency had the nerve to put us when we arrived in Israel. In those days, Holon wasn’t any more friendly than the Kremlin. We even—”

“Nurse,” says the man, taking his head out of my chest. “Can you take off Kay’s pajamas please, so I can get to her back?” 

While Nurse Olga eases my top off, the man looks past me at the lamp on the headboard. His lips are thick, his forehead high, and his eyes bulge. He gives his best smile and tells me his name is Avi. He doesn’t look like an Avi though, he looks like an explorer, or a philosopher, or a scientist. 

Einstein. I’ll call him Einstein. 

Einstein, who seconds ago had his face in my cleavage, now thanks me in a formal voice for my cooperation and apologizes for the intrusion.

I edge forward so he can get to my back. Even moving a couple of inches brings on the agony of feeling impaled. He grimaces with me and waits for my pain to subside, then embarks on his scientific expedition. He documents what he calls “lacerations.” It sounds exciting. He has an efficient but mysterious method. It involves a tape measure, the camera and a clipboard. Working his way down my side and across my back, he mutters secret formulas to himself, like “two-and-a-half inches,” as if worried he may forget. 

He gives the camera a couple of clicks, puts it down, hurriedly writes on the clipboard and then goes back to the tape measure. It is clammy on my skin and makes me shudder. Camera clicks. Pen scratches. Camera clicks. Pen scratches.

Genius. I am in the presence of genius. 

Engrossed in his mission, Einstein gives me the feeling that he is working on something that will change the world. I wonder what it could be. Whatever it is, I feel quite proud to be part of this great experiment, even though it means being photographed naked from the waist up. 

Nurse Olga resumes her monologue about how, back in the ’90’s, Holon used to be a real dump. But, genius that he is, Einstein is too consumed with his world-breaking discovery. He just says, “Nurse, let me concentrate for a moment, please.” I blink around the room. Einstein must have been so excited at what he discovered that he slipped away without saying goodbye, to carry on working towards his great invention. Olga’s not here anymore either. She must have gone with him. 

And from later on in the book, this photograph is directly part of the evidence used to convict the two terrorists.

He hands them a pile of photographs. “And these are Kay’s injuries.” 

As the judges bend forward to survey the damage, Padan goes into detail. The stenographer types as he speaks. The clicks of the typewriter compete with the traffic. 

“Thirteen machete wounds, a crushed sternum, multiple fractures of ribs, bone splinters in her lungs, a broken shoulder blade and a dislocated shoulder.” 

How can social media scale globally and ever avoid this kind of problem? I don’t have the answer and neither does Twitter or Jack Dorsey.

And just as I’m ready to publish, following Israellycool’s post and tons of tweets, Twitter have reinstated the tweet and reactivated her account. Kay won, as Winston Churchill would say “complete surrender”.

On Christmas Eve reports started dropping onto Twitter of major YouTube Channels having large amounts of content censored and deleted. The common factor was talking about crypto currencies or blockchain technology. No warnings were given and the damage was widespread.

I put this into the wider context of mass censorship on YouTube away from alternative and non-main stream topics and creators and toward the mainstream “safe” for advertisers content that YouTube is able to consistently make money on.

My extra thoughts on this: there’s definitely an element of the fall out from the COPPA settlement, this saw Google fined for collecting data on children watching videos in contravention of a clear law. Whatever directed them to take this action, it is yet another reason why our Crypto Class Action case, links below, is so important!

I’m talking today about WHY you’re watching this video on 3Speak, about the Steem blockchain and blogging there. I also cover where I differ from Katie Hopkins but why I still absolutely support her right to make and show films about Jews moving to Israel in Jerusalem.

Thanks for watching and if you derive value from this work, please consider sending some value my way! Thanks.

Last night I saw Homelands, Katie Hopkins new film sponsored by the EU, looking at Jews leaving Europe specifically because of rising Jew hatred. It isn’t racist and it isn’t even the made up word “Islamophobic”. It does tell stories of Jews leaving Europe because they are afraid of a future in which Europe is increasingly Islamic and fearful of the rising levels of Jew hatred that accompany increases in islamic religious observance. Below is the blog post I wrote while waiting for the event and a video I recorded.

I’m currently in a bar in Jerusalem killing time: in two hours I’m supposed to be at a screening of Katie Hopkins’ new film “Homelands”.

This was meant to have taken place in a small town just to the north of Tel Aviv, Raanana, home to a large ex-South African anglo population, last night. That was cancelled after an Israeli TV journalist started questioning the venue. As the rabidly far-left and evil Ha’aretz lied in the first paragraph:

The screening of an anti-Muslim documentary by controversial right-wing British media personality Katie Hopkins in Ra’anana, north of Tel Aviv, was canceled over the weekend by “mutual agreement.”

Eyebrows were first raised last week, when it became clear that the sold-out screening was set to take place Monday night in an auditorium that belongs to the municipality of Ra’anana, a city that is home to many immigrants from Western Europe.

There was no mutual agreement. That’s a simple to verify lie by Ha’aretz.

The organisers shifted it forward a day (today) and moved it to another venue in Jerusalem. That was attacked this morning and canceled. Another was found, while I was driving to Jerusalem that one pulled out.

I’ve met Katie, in fact I may even be in her film, she interviewed me but until I see the finished product I don’t know what bits she used.

Just as Israel’s internal politics are marching fast to the right and away from surrender to Islamic Jihad and terror, even our Israeli media, aided and abetted by the Dhimmis in the UK Board of Deputies of British Jews are trying desperately not to acknowledge any truths about the UK or Europe.

There is an increase in Jew hatred, a dramatic one and the vast increase in Islamic immigration to Europe and the even poorer rate at which new immigrants are assimilating in host countries, guarantees that a week minority, like Jews, will be blamed and hates. There are two possibly responses: oppose unbridled immigration and call out Islamic Jew hatred or pretend it doesn’t exist and think that by being nice to new immigrants raised on a Koranic diet of Jew hatred, they’ll change.

Unfortunately the dhimmi Jews of Europe are doing the later and engendering even more hatred toward Jews than otherwise exists (and has always existed) in European populations.

I can guarantee, if Jews were visibly on the front lines of the populist wave, calling for sensible immigration and being very healthily skeptical about Islamic values changing any time soon, there would be far less Jew hatred in Europe instead of far more.

The fact is, with the present Jewish community leadership across Europe, with very few exceptions, their actions have no influence whatsoever on Islamic Jew hatred (which will inexorably rise correlated with the size and strength of Islamic populations) and it gives ammunition to those already steeped in old antisemitic lies of Jewish control and Jewish subterfuge to somehow repress the non Jews. As ridiculous as their old conspiracy theories are, calling anyone who tries to save their native values and culture “far right” or an “Islamophobe” (as they’re calling Katie Hopkins) is making a gigantic mistake.

Telegram is where we’re at for Tommy Robinson, Sargon of Akkad, Alex Jones, Laura Loomer and other digital refugees

Now we have to see how long before Treason May in the UK and the various forces of Mordor in the USA, marshalled by Dark Lord Soros, call for Apple and Google to remove the Telegram App from their app stores?

Tommy Robinson Telegram 40,000 subscribers.

I had a feeling we’d see a movement to Telegram. I had seen it in use by some groups and when Tommy Robinson’s and my primary Facebook account were deleted in February I set up my channel and Tommy’s. It took a while to get him using it but once he did, the growth was astonishing. Despite the initial scepticism of Lizzie Dearden of the Independent not thinking his fans were “young” enough to figure it out. Obviously we’re nudging 40,000 subscribers now!

Yes, I did call the channel “Tommy Robinson’s Friends of Zuck” because I set it up the day that Zuckerberg’s Facebook minions erased Tommy’s page: at that time probably the largest and most active political page in the UK.

This list was not compiled by me. I don’t know everybody on it, I don’t endorse all their views. I’m not interested in hearing that they’ve ever said something you don’t like or they hold views and opinions you think I shouldn’t like. See note at the end.

Telegram channel list as compiled by Alternative News (thanks!)

I don’t vouch for their content though I do recognise most of them. If any of them:

  • are actual Nazis and parade around in the uniforms of the Third Reich or wave Swastikas;
  • you can send me well documented evidence of very obvious Jew hatred;
  • show me evidence of views derived from Culture of Critique that the “Jews control the media/banks/world”
  • evidence of theories derived from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion (similar to above);

then I’ll think about taking them off my list. Even then I’ll think twice. As much as I abhor those things I’ve listed, in these days of extreme censorship I’m a free speech extremist. You can find Louis Farrakhan on your own without any help from me, however.
