Barstool Sports Moves to Encrypted App Telegram to Protest Social Media Censorship

This is the latest in an exodus from restrictive Big Tech monopoly platforms.

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.

“That Stuff Ain’t Happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden Ticket”: Fox Sports Broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman Mock Military Jet Flyovers on Hot Mic

Published

on

The top NFL broadcast duo at Fox Sports, Joe Buck and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman, mocked military jet flyovers on a hot mic during Sunday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Aikman started it all by saying, “That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.”

“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!” Buck responded sarcastically.

The most notable and outrageous moment came when Aikman then quipped, “That stuff ain’t happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”

How embarrassing and disgraceful. The NFL has already lost many conservative fans over its aggressively pro-social justice, pro-Black Lives Matter stance, so I guess it’s no surprise that its commentators and broadcasters would be liberal as well.

Many on social media are reacting to the Buck/Aikman hot mic by saying that the flyovers are a waste of money and that there’s nothing wrong with what they said. Aside from the fact that these flyovers are legitimate training exercises, none of them are focusing on Aikman’s last comment about the “Kamala-Biden ticket” (which is in the wrong order, if you didn’t already notice). He’s implying that flyovers honoring the military are nothing more than a partisan display that Democrats would prefer not to see. That’s shameful.
