Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe revealed today that his organization was suspended from Twitter for tweets revealing Pinterest’s mass censorship of conservative websites and individuals on its platform.
On June 11, O’Keefe interviewed a whistle blower at Pinterest who revealed that the platform adds conservative news websites, including Big League Politics, to a list of “porn” websites in an attempt to prevent our links from being posted to the platform, and that employees at Pinterest consider Ben Shapiro, a Jewish conservative commentator, to be an anti-Muslim “white supremacist.” Project Veritas was suspended from Twitter for posting screen shots from the company’s Slack chat illustrating this.
“Twitter has decided that investigative journalism is a violation of their terms of service,” wrote O’Keefe on his personal Twitter account. “@Project_Veritas has been temporarily suspended from posting for tweeting internal communications from @Pinterest which show them calling @benshapiro a ‘white supremacist.'”

It would appear Twitter is doing its best to protect their fellow big tech platform in this latest move. Unfortunately, Big League Politics and others have already reported on the Pinterest employees calling Shapiro a “white supremacist”.
Further documents published by Project Veritas show an employee calling right-wing pundit Ben Shapiro a “white supremacist,” and putting listing Candace Owens alongside him as “ones to watch for content.”
“Ben Shapiro is a white supremacist who has regularly spewed anti muslim hate and he and candace owens and few others may be ones to watch content for over the next few days,” a post from an internal Slack chat said.
“I reported all the top instances of his “Myth of the tiny radical muslim” video from youtube that a number of journalists have been calling out,” the post continued. “There will no doubt be people searching for his content across platforms. I’ll start putting together a list of things like this video of his that may be worth creating an advisor for (though not blocking results).
In Pinterest’s text document, “porn_domain_blacklist”, dozens of conservative media outlets are considered “porn”. Big League Politics, Western Journal, TeaParty.org, PJ Media, and others are all covered in the dragnet, and considered “porn” by the big tech platform.
The whistle blower explained to Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe that the porn blacklist is used to ensure links to conservative and pro-choice websites are not posted to the platform.
It is unclear why Twitter took this action against Project Veritas, considering the leaked Slack chat does not identify a user by name, or identify private information about Slack employees, the rule Twitter claims was broken by the whistle blowing organization.
Spotify Snowflakes Threaten to Strike If ‘Joe Rogan Experience’ is Not Censored on Platform
Leftists hate free speech.
A contingent of leftist snowflakes working at Spotify are demanding that certain podcast episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience be censored to their ideological demands, or they will strike.
Last week, it was reported that Spotify was undergoing a revolt of sorts because several controversial episodes of the podcast were being published on the platform. An episode featuring Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, is particularly offensive to the left-wing snowflakes who hate freedom of speech and love mentally-ill individuals getting their genitals mutilated.
Rogan is already being forced to grovel for making accurate statements on his podcast, such as when he correctly claimed that left-wing terrorists are starting wildfires in places like Portland.
“I said something on the podcast with Douglas Murray about people getting arrested for lighting fires, and I got duped. It’s wrong,” Rogan said in an Instagram post.
Smelling blood in the water, the Spotify leftists are going for the jugular. They are threatening to strike if they cannot exert further ideological control over Rogan’s podcast. According to Digital Music News, New York-based Spotify employees are intending to strike with accompanying pro-censorship protests outside of Spotify’s Manhattan headquarters.
However, they report that Spotify brass is likely willing to stare down these entitled employees, considering the $100 million investment they put into Rogan’s podcast.
“It also appears that Spotify management — including CEO Daniel Ek — has a limited tolerance for the mutiny on deck… The reason for Ek’s pushback is somewhat obvious. Joe Rogan’s entire identity revolves around unfiltered discussion and opinion, and audiences could abandon the podcast if it becomes censored or controlled,” Digital Music News reported.
Big League Politics has reported on the controversial episodes of Rogan’s podcast that have already been censored by Spotify:
Fans of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast were mostly thrilled when the stand-up comedian and UFC announcer announced his move to Spotify, believing that this change would allow Rogan to have more creative freedom than he did previously.
However, this does not appear to be the case as Spotify has banned controversial and popular episodes now that the platform controls the podcast.
The Spotify channel for the Joe Rogan Experience does not host episodes featuring conspiracy icon Alex Jones and Bitcoin enthusiast David Seaman. Other right-wing figures interviewed by Rogan over the years – including Gavin McInnes, Stefan Molyneux, Milo Yiannopoulos, Charles C. Johnson, Owen Benjamin and Sargon of Akkad – have been scrubbed by Spotify as well.
Rogan fans are not happy at this early indicator that Spotify will likely be exerting massive control over the show’s content.
“This goes against his “we need to talk to everybody” shtick. Im not interested in listening to curated podcasts by his employer,” wrote Reddit user “Pluum” in disgust of the news.
“So disappointed, Alex did not even say anything too crazy on those episodes. I had Spotify premium prior to Rogan but I will probably quit my subscription just out of spite now, that will show them!” wrote user @Excavatetheinfo in another Reddit post.
“Not sure what your question is exactly but “He sold out” is kind of a general explanation of what’s going on,” user @Elgallo619 wrote in a comment.
“Spotify is partnered with Tencent Holdings, a Chinese company whose CEO is an active member of the Chinese Communist Party. Anything remotely anti-CCP is getting 86’d,” wrote user @dictatorphil about Spotify’s Chinese connections.
Spotify would be wise to not let these leftist staffers hold the company hostage due to their opposition of free of expression. If they capitulate, the Rogan podcast could be the next victim of the “go woke, go broke” phenomenon.
