Kremlin and the Censors at Huffington Post

I couldn't help but think of Huffington Post when I read an article in the Wall Street Journal yesterday called "How U.S. Citizens Mysteriously March For Kremlin Causes."

In the article we learned that the Kremlin propaganda machine pays U.S. citizens to demonstrate in favor of issues they support, then they film the demonstrations and show them to Russian citizens.

And of course the similarity with the Huffington Post is that Arianna Huffington tries to create the same warped reality for her readers.

When the responses to her blog post "Setting the Record Straight: On Trolls, Moles, and Dis-Invited Bloggers" didn't fit her distorted picture of herself and Huffington Post, her censors (they call them editors at HuffPo) went to work.

To read a real time description of how this played out, read the replies to my post Arianna Huffington is a Lying Liar. Here's the Proof.

Censorship IS unamerican, Arianna.

Dr. Rost, There is great truth in what you write. The HuffPo editors certainly do selectively choose replies to shape the opinion of the discussion.

Dear Mr. Rost,

Why aren't we discussing this Mearsheimer/Walt segment on the pro-Israel lobby which aired on C-SPAN's 'Washington Journal' this morning?:

They are censoring anything on Israel because, the Zionists know the jig is up thats obvious.

Israel and the Zionists can't hide or play the blame game now that they've ruined our country, via neocon intervention.

Those losers are all the same now, just like the trolls such as returnofdrevil2, Al Rogers, Nan Ellen of the Daily "KOS" propaganda press.


Very much agree with the above.. My HPCensoringBigTime Username was just banned at for posting on pages 1 and 2 of the comments at about the Zionist war for Israel agenda and the Mearsheimer/Walt paper on the pro-Israel lobby segment which aired on C-SPAN's 'Washington Journal' program this past Friday..

Abraham Foxman (of the ADL) was hammered hard by the caller (a lady with the Brit accent calling from London) on C-SPAN's 'Washington Journal' this morning as she mentioned the USS Liberty attack/cover-up ( and Paul Findley's 'There Dare to Speak Out' book and Jim Bamford's 'A Pretext for War' book as well (both the Mearsheimer/Walt and Abraham Foxman segments can be viewed online via the links at the following URL):,WJE&ArchiveDays=30

Of course you were banned, you're a fucking idiot. Maybe your anti-Israel ramblings wouldn't be censored if you posted them a story ABOUT Israel. You'd still be an idiot, but you'd be an idiot on topic.

You are not being censored. You are being edited.

HuffPost is Arianna's entity, and comes with a point of view. Surprised? That's why you have your own blog, so you can edit yourself as you choose.

You were clearly an unhappy camper at HP, so why are you so absolutely totally wigged out that you were shown the door?

You protest a bit too much...

I got banned yet again for posting what I did on page 1 of the comments at the following blog entry (as censorship is still very much alive at

The above by another Israel firster I would assume?

To respond to eurydice, it's the exact opposite.

I posted some not-anti Israeli opinions in the blogs three weeks ago, and since they they will not post my blog responses (Dendroica is my username at Huffpo.)

The place has turned into a madhouse, and I think they need to change their policies, or at least be honest about them.

If Ariana knew what they were doing in her name, she'd have a fit. Or at least, I'd like to think that, but I'm no longer sure...

I, too have been banned at FluffyPo, primarily challenging the Obamanation on their irrational and insulting hostility toward the Clintons. My site is
Would love to have people join me in open dialog about anything. Won't be moderated or censored. And no one will be banned.

I was banned last week from huffington Post. I had published only 2 postings. Here's what they said and you tell me why it is important to never see or read the information. I wrote that a company called CDI Controlled Demolition Inc was doing "work" inside the World Trade Centers on Sat Sept 8th and Sun Sept 9th 2001. Hundreds saw this company coming and going the entire weekend. What was different about that weekend? For the first time in the near 40 year history of the WTC's there was a complete "power down" on only the very tops of the buildings. To more was at the very level at which the supposed planes had struck the buildings and above. For that I have been banned from ever typing at Huffington Post ever again. I wonder why? Knowing the 911 was a complete and total orchestrated murder would put a damper on our so called war on terror and the other Trillions of dollars worth of illegal causes the US government has been engaged in since then. All talk of 911 is banned. Why? Because then we would know the "Big Lie". Everything that Bush has done since rigging the elections in 2000 would become perfectly clear....and devistating at the same time.
