Hard to believe it’s been 10 years since Bare Naked Islam came into being, but we (Grumpy and me) are still here. More than 175 million people have visited this site.
I started this blog 7 years after 9/11 because I found myself getting banned from online discussion forums, even conservative ones, for exposing the ugly truths about Islam. Seven years after 9/11, people seemed to want to forget about what happened to our country on that fateful day, while trying to ignore the ever-increasing threat that Muslims still posed to America and around the world.
When I started this blog, there were many great anti-Islam blogs on the internet, some of the best coming out of the UK. Thanks to PC censorship, virtually none of the British anti-Islam blogs are around anymore. And there are many fewer than there used to be in America now, too.
We’ve had our ups and downs at BNI, with our major enemy still being designated terrorist group CAIR. In 2011, they convinced my first web host, WordPress, to drop BNI. And they did the same thing to two other of my webhosts. They and other far left groups like Pro-Publica have pressured several of my advertisers and PayPal to pull their ads from BNI, and they did.
Though I can’t prove it, I truly believe that the several major hacker attacks on this site were arranged and paid for by CAIR. I have been a permanent member of CAIR’s US Islamophobia Network list since its inception, even though most of their complaints are about my commenters, not the content. Nevertheless, it caused a lot of downtime at BNI.
Until this year, BNI had always been included on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) list of anti-Muslim hate groups. But I don’t see the listing now, no doubt the result of a recent lawsuit by a Muslim reformer from the UK who was included on the SPLC anti-Muslim extremist list. SPLC lost the case and was forced to pay him more than $3 million. In fact, the entire anti-Muslim hate group list has suddenly disappeared from SPLC.
In any case, those wanting to take down BNI keep trying. As a result, I have had to employ the latest state-of-the-art security to prevent the almost daily hacker attack attempts from being successful. And I have a wonderful web host who cannot be pressured by groups like CAIR.
