Conservative Inc. is getting desperate to suppress dissent after a grassroots revolt has started at “Culture War” events hosted by Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder Charlie Kirk, where the pro-drag queen student leader has been bombarded with questions about his ideology.
After a TPUSA event at Ohio State University crashed and burned on Wednesday night, Conservative Inc. is in full-blown damage control, and they are attempting to cancel paleoconservative video blogger Nick Fuentes as a result.
Trust fund conservative Will Chamberlain, who has presided over the fizzling Human Events re-launch, accused Fuentes of “anti-semitism” in many Twitter posts throughout the day.
Folks – the point of the anti-@charliekirk11 campaign is not to push Charlie on nationalism, or to stand up for free speech

BlazeTV’s Lauren Chen cried foul at Chamberlain’s desperate smears and made a post in favor of free speech for TPUSA’s critics.
Her Twitter post, which quickly racked up many likes on the platform, can be seen here:
However, Chen removed the post from Twitter after it started to gain popularity, perhaps after receiving orders from her boss Glenn Beck.
Kirk makes frequent appearances on Beck’s radio show where he receives effusive praise from the former “Never Trump” leader.
The orders have clearly come from the top, as the right-wing griftosphere lines up to throw Fuentes under the bus. They are using leftist guilt-by-association tactics to smear Kirk’s questioners in an attempt to quell the grassroots uprising against Conservative Inc.
Disgraced plagiarist turned TPUSA speaker Benny Johnson compared the questioners to the Westboro Baptist Church for having the audacity to oppose the LGBT agenda:
There’s a difference between asking genuine questions & trolling
“How does Anal Sex help win the Culture War” isn’t a serious question
It’s homophobic & disgusting.
In America, what happens between two consenting adults is their business

Former Trump administration official Sebastian Gorka petitioned Twitter to have Fuentes thrown off the platform, calling him a “holocaust denier” without offering proof:
No human intervention, right? pic.twitter.com/RiBqK2YjFp

Co-founder of Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire blog, Jeremy Boreing bashed the questioners for not understanding the virtues of American liberalism:
What these retrograde losers don't understand is that what American conservatives want to conserve is American liberalism.
American conservatism is not European conservatism. https://t.co/PkBpCNTgku

Frequent Trump critic Brad Polumbo of the Washington Examiner gave credit to Kirk for defending the LGBT agenda by hurling insults toward Christian questioners:
I criticize Charlie Kirk/TPUSA regularly, (and sorry for sharing a disgusting alt-right account) but I do have to give him credit for this.
Kirk was having NONE of this dude's virulent homophobia. https://t.co/bl2n70pS0P

Another Washington Examiner reporter, Siraj Hashmi posted a clip from a Young Turks hit piece in which Fuentes called for consequences to be levied against the fake news that President Trump has repeatedly called the enemies of America:
Just white nationalist and alt-right darling Nick Fuentes saying that he wants CNN reporters to be “arrested and deported or hanged.” pic.twitter.com/mCUTcFqv5k

However, not every voice is piling on to destroy Fuentes and malign the free speech of Kirk’s questioners. Some prominent right-wingers have defended the questioners, and criticized the leftist-style digital lynch mob orchestrated by Conservative Inc.
Independent journalist Mike Cernovich expressed shock at Conservative Inc. figures calling for Fuentes to get booted from social media:
Quite alright to find Nick Fuentes offensive, even odious or whether terms are in vogue. No one is obligated to share a stage with him.
Seeing conservatives demanding he be banned from social media, WTF.

Popular video blogger Paul Joseph Watson of Summit News posted a video response to the controversy in which he explained the gate-keeping ways of Turning Point’s UK chapter:

Michelle Malkin echoed the concerns of one questioner who called out Kirk for his immigration policies that would open the flood gates for foreign workers from the third-world to come to the US and vote Democrat:
Cringe. @charliekirk11 triples down on stapling green cards to F-1 diplomas, falsely claims green cards only provide "temporary" residency and no path to citizenship, and falsely claims F-1/OPT workers pay taxes. Stabbing US grads in the back is not America First. #openbordersinc https://t.co/QRtMFEufUI

The grassroots revolt against Kirk is making it easier than ever to see who is genuine in the American right, as Conservative Inc. readily adopts the tactics of the Left to stifle the dissent it cannot control.
YouTube Temporarily SUSPENDS One America News Network’s Channel for Violating “COVID-19 Misinformation” Policy
What a crock.
YouTube has temporarily suspended and demonetized the conservative One America News Network (most often referred to as OAN or OANN) for ostensibly violating their policy against “COVID-19 misinformation.”
Axios first reported the story Tuesday afternoon. YouTube spokeswoman Ivy Choi told the news outlet that OANN “uploaded a video promoting a phony cure for COVID-19.”
The suspension will last one week. In that time OANN cannot upload new videos or livestreams, and neither will they be able to make money from video monetization unless they re-apply and YouTube approves.
According to YouTube this is the OANN channel’s first “strike.” If they receive two more “strikes,” they will permanently ban their channel.
Axios also notes that “YouTube, like other platforms, has grown more willing to take action against conservative-leaning accounts that spread misinformation” and that “it has also been trying to provide greater visibility to legitimate news outlets.” In other words, grown more willing to suppress channels that don’t adhere to The Official Narrative and prop up channels that exuberantly do.
Back in September YouTube also censored Dr. Scott Atlas, a Hoover Institute senior fellow and Trump coronavirus advisor, for spreading “COVID-19 misinformation”:
