Barstool Sports, the popular uncensored sports blog, is migrating to the encrypted app Telegram after complaining of growing social media censorship by Big Tech.
They made a public service announcement on Tuesday telling supporters about how they are creating a profile on Telegram in protest of Instagram, the social media provider owned by Facebook that recently implemented new restrictions on content.
“Instagram has been continuously cracking down on what they deem is acceptable content on their platform,” Barstool wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday. “There are certain videos types (sic) that were ‘ok’ to post months ago that are now getting flagged as a violation of their terms of service.”
“In an effort to bring barstool fans the content they desire and are used to we have started a channel on Telegram where you will get all the videos that we can’t post here. It sucks we can’t post these videos on Instagram but we have to play by their rules or risk getting removed,” they added.
They will continue their presence on Instagram and other monopoly social media providers, but users on Telegram will get the premium uncensored content that is no longer permissible under the draconian regime of Big Tech. Barstool is already getting criticized by the far left for standing for freedom of expression.

Barstool is following many exiled dissidents from right-wing politics, who have used Telegram as a way to keep in touch with their supporters while facing a coordinated censorship campaign against them by powerful monolithic corporations. Journalist Laura Loomer, provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, and Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes are among the personalities who have joined to the platform.
Telegram has been demonized frequently by the fake news media in recent months as a consequence of supporting free speech and privacy rights on their platform.
“These methods of communication may not offer the same opportunities for fundraising and gaining mainstream influence, but extremists can continue to incite hate among smaller and more radical groups of followers in these spaces that are harder for researchers, journalists and law enforcement to track,” wrote leftist hack Nick Robins-Early in a HuffPo scare piece about Telegram.
“In one day, I found more than 100 channels dedicated to hating Jewish, Muslim, black, and Latino people; celebrating fascism and white supremacy; and posting memes that glorify Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan. Plenty have more than 1,000 subscribers. Every few days, many of these channels post lists of other similar hateful communities of users to join on Telegram,” censorship advocate April Glaser claimed in a Slate column.
No matter the demonization campaign from the fake news, Telegram will continue to become more inviting to individuals and media entities that are tired of Big Tech’s thought control operation. Bartool’s decision may be the beginning of a social media exodus to finally cut Silicon Valley down to size.
NFL Coach Bill Belichick Declines Presidential Medal of Freedom, Citing ‘Social Justice’ Reasons
More sportsball cowardice.
NFL coach Bill Belichick has caved to the politically correct mob and will be rejecting the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Donald Trump.
He made the announcement on Tuesday that he was rejecting the Medal of Freedom to the NFL Network.
“Recently, I was offered the opportunity to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which I was flattered by out of respect for what the honor represents and admiration for prior recipients. Subsequently, the tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award,” Belichick said.
“Above all, I am an American citizen with great reverence for our nation’s values, freedom and democracy. I know I also represent my family and the New England Patriots team. One of the most rewarding things in my professional career took place in 2020 when, through the great leadership within our team, conversations about social justice, equality and human rights moved to the forefront and became actions. Continuing those efforts while remaining true to the people, team and country I love outweigh the benefits of any individual award,” he added.
Before he was gelded, Belichick had been a long-time friend of Trump, and he had endorsed Trump back in 2016 in a glowing letter that the soon-to-be president read to a New Hampshire crowd.
“Congratulations on a tremendous campaign. You have dealt with an unbelievable slanted and negative media, and have come out beautifully – beautifully,” Belichick wrote. “You’ve proved to be the ultimate competitor and fighter. Your leadership is amazing.”
“I have always had tremendous respect for you, but the toughness and perseverance you have displayed over the past year is remarkable. Hopefully tomorrow’s election results will give the opportunity to make America great again. Best wishes for great results tomorrow,” he added.
Unfortunately, the far-left NFL eventually wore Belichick down and he folded to the liberal mob.
Big League Politics has reported on the NFL’s embrace of the Black Lives Matter terror movement following the China-backed protests of washed up former QB Colin Kaepernick:
The National Football League is planning to play what some call the “Black National Anthem” before every Week One game during the 2020 season, a nod to dissatisfaction with the American National Anthem within the league’s player base and the broader liberal social justice movement in the United States.
The league will feature the song ‘Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,’ playing it in a manner similar to how the Star Spangled Banner is traditionally played at games. Sources indicate that the former will be played before the latter.
NFL players will also be permitted the option of memorializing individuals who are allegedly the victims of police violence, wearing a sticker on their helmets with the names of individuals such as George Floyd.
The New England Patriots ought to change the name of their team after Belichick’s shameful capitulation and betrayal of President Trump.
