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.

Pro-Trump UFC Fighter Offers to Fight on White House Lawn During Coronavirus Pandemic
Colby Covington wants to put on a show for his fans.
While most professional sports have shut down, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is still hoping to put on mixed martial arts fights during the coronavirus pandemic.
UFC promoter Dana White intends to put on his UFC 249 pay-per-view broadcast next month despite major problems in finding a venue and fighters willing to participate in the event. He refuses to say where the event, which is scheduled to take place on Apr. 18, will ultimately take place.
“Believe me, people have been talking about that,” White said of the potential for holding UFC 249 on an aircraft carrier. “I haven’t resorted to that yet, but that’s probably coming soon.”
White, an avid supporter of President Donald Trump who hosted the President at a UFC event last year, blames the fake news media for making it so difficult for him to promote a fight during the pandemic.
“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”
Former UFC champion and outspoken bad boy Colby Covington has a suggestion for White on where to hold the event: the White House lawn. Covington offered to fight another former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in a free exhibition at any time.
“The offer still stands UFC. I’ll go full Teddy Roosevelt & beat the breaks off Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley live from The White House lawn! Save sports and make it free on ESPN for the people! Im in such a giving mood I’ll even arrange a tour of the oval office for Tyrone, since Obama never did,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.
Covington is one of the most outspoken Trump supporters in all of professional sports, building his entire public image around his support of the President.
“The haters are saying I’m the underdog,” Covington said in 2018. “You know who else was the underdog? The ruler of our nation Donald Trump. And just like Trump I’m gonna grab these p**sies and put them in their place.”
In an iconic photograph, Covington can be seen presenting his former UFC title to President Donald Trump in the Oval Office.
“He didn’t have to spend as much time as he did with us, and he legitimately gave us 30 minutes – just (expletive), told us some funny stories, he likes chicks, he likes wrestling, he likes MMA. And he was just telling us stories and just being a regular guy. He’s down to earth. He’s just a regular guy,” Covington said following his meeting with the President.
Covington hopes to make the UFC great again, and give lockdown-weary Americans something to excite them, with a patriotic display of ultimate fighting outside of the White House.
