WND's Farah Uses His Wife To Play Victim
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah just loves to play the victim when it comes to absolving himself from responsibility for any bad thing that happens to his WorldNetDaily. And he did it again in his July 4 column:

My wife, Elizabeth, was leading a small Bible study, seen by no more than 50 people, as she does every Saturday. Last Saturday was no exception.

I was moderating as usual.

She was delivering a livestream presentation via YouTube on the little book of Haggai.

Elizabeth has a heart for the lost. She spends countless hours every week researching the Bible and learning from the original texts, Hebrew and Greek, and other sources. She loves to share this information. She's more gifted at this than I am – and I've been doing it for over 45 years.

Suddenly, about 30 minutes after starting the streaming Bible study, with no warning, the program was called to an abrupt end – replaced by a message that said Elizabeth had violated "community standards" and was getting a timeout until Sept. 29.

But it wasn't for something she was talking about last Saturday. It was for an earlier YouTube video in May on the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

They said it was "MISINFORMATION."

That's a scary word for Democrats.

Of course, they never spread "MISINFORMATION."

t was apparently "MISINFORMATION" about the election of 2020.

Elizabeth just wanted to thank President Donald J. Trump for fulfilling his promise to nominate all pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Apparently, that was a "sin" against Big Tech.

Note that Farah doesn't directly quote what his wife said or explain why it wasn't misinformation. Perhaps that's because we know he and WND have been prolific sources of misinformation about the 2020 election in promoting false and discredited claims that there was election fraud.

So rather than actually defend his wife, it was time to cry victimhood yet again with a told orld story: "Earlier, YouTube completely and permanently demonetized WND. Google, which owns YouTube, also completely and permanently demonetized WND, costing us millions of dollars in annual revenues." As we've documented before, Google has stopped doing business with WND -- as any private business has the right to do -- because it no longer wants to be associated with a website that spreads hate, lies and misinformation. He went on to whine that WND was targeted because it supported Trump, ending with this odd declaration:

I've been nagging Elizabeth to use a different platform – one that respects other opinions. YouTube, Google and Big Tech do not. She doesn't plan to go through the agony of answering the charges this time. Never again. Why humiliate yourself?

In retrospect, WND was always right about Trump.

And we stand with him yesterday, today and tomorrow.

All he ever wanted, in good faith, was to make America great again.

Join with me in prayer that he gets another chance to do just that.

And, to my darling Elizabeth, I respect you and love you for what you are doing with God's Word.

Who needs YouTube?

Actually, Farah is looking for a different platform that will tolerate her lies and misinformation. And, actually, what Elizabeth Farah is "doing with God's Word" is spreading hate and lies. In videos before the 2020 election, she repeatedly smeared Joe Biden while bizarrely proclaiming that Trump was appointed by God to the presidency. She is not a good person, let alone a person anybody should be taking Bible lessons from.
