Executive Officers / Co-Founders,
DeviantART

DeviantART is a wonderful artists website where members are able to express themselves in a nurturing environment of creativity, learning, and talent.

Unfortunately there are some dA members who have posted words/art which incite HATE.

deviantART's etiquette policy states that deviantART does not tolerate any form of HATE. Although many complaints have been made over the years the administrators have not deleted HATE words/art from the website.

THE deviantART POLICY:

deviantART does not tolerate remarks that are in any form of bigotry. These include but are not limited to;

1. Racist Slurs
2. Anti-Semitic or other derogatory remarks about philosophies and religions.

The following is one example of HATE words/art on deviantART, which has not been deleted after numerous complaints:

was there really a holocaust ?


HOLOCAUST DENIAL is NOT an OPINION

HOLOCAUST DENIAL is a LIE used to INCITE HATE

Neo-Nazis who once embraced the reality of the Holocaust (they were only angry Hitler did not succeeded in murdering everyone they hated) now finds it useful to promote Holocaust denial.

To diminish the number of people murdered during the Holocaust convinces a mainstream audience to join in their revisionist movement. They deny the facts about the Holocaust so no one will sympathise with the victims. They say the victims and witnesses are liars. Revisionists (Holocaust deniers) say the Holocaust was a fabrication meant to justify the State of Israels existence.

DeviantART policy is MORALLY OPPOSED TO speech/art, which incites HATE.

The right of FREE SPEECH
is NOT A RIGHT
for those WHO INCITE HATE
on the deviantART website.



WE, the undersigned, REQUEST:

the deviantART administrators enforce the deviantART guidelines as expressed in the etiquette policy to ensure, to the best of their ability, that HATE words /art are deleted from the deviantART website.


Thank you.
