“While Farrar no longer writes for Deadspin regularly, we as an organization do support his stance of trolling white supremacist supported and associated organizations like Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point USA,” said Barry Petchesky, deputy editor at Deadspin.

Petchesky was responding to a request for comment from Independent Journal Review regarding remarks made on Twitter by Deadspin contributor Jesse Farrar:

Farrar appeared to advocate for the murder of conservative college students in responding to a Tweet from Turning Point USA’s founder Charlie Kirk, according to Kirk’s response. TPUSA is a conservative student organization with hundreds of chapters on college ad high school campuses around the country.

“I get countless of [sic] messages from students who say professors are lowering their grades & penalizing them for being conservative,” Kirk said.

“They shouldn’t do that. It’s not right. They should hold the conservative students heads under water until they stop breathing instead,” Farrar said in response.

His original response has now been deleted.

AnnaKatherine Clarke, a student at Covenant College, told Big League Politics that Farrar’s comments are disgusting.

“He’s quite literally advocating for water boarding of people he disagrees with, that’s not what America is built on,” she said.

Michael L. Jones, a student at Auburn University, agreed.

“I think it’s disgusting that someone would consider murdering another human in the first place, but particularly reprehensible for political views to be the reason,” he said.

Though Farrar deleted the Tweet pictured above, he re-affirmed that he was not joking about his stance when Kirk tried to give him the benefit of the doubt:

“I’m sure he was joking, but imagine if conservatives made a joke like that against liberals,” Kirk said.

“I am not joking,” said Farrar in response.

Petchesky said in his email response to Independent Journal Review that he would not personally advocate for drowning conservative students, and that Farrar obviously meant the Tweet as a joke.

“I can’t argue that [drowning conservative students] wouldn’t make the world a better place.”

Hungary Will Take Action Against Big Tech Shadowbanning of Christians, Conservatives, and Other Right-Wingers

Holding Big Tech accountable.

The government of Viktor Orban, prime minister of Hungary, has announced its commitment to take on Big Tech’s shadowbanning of Christians, conservatives, and other assorted right-wingers.

In a Facebook post shared Monday, Hungarian Minister of Justice Judit Varga said she believes that shadowbanning—the secret restriction of a social media user’s visibility—violates “fundamental democratic legal norms that form the basis of Western-type culture.”

Because of Big Tech’s “systematic abuses,” Varga said she convened a meeting of the Hungarian Digital Freedom Committee and will soon meet with the president of the Hungarian Competition Authority regarding “the possibility of sanctioning unfair commercial practices.”

Varga also claimed she has personally experienced shadowbanning and then linked to the following tweets from James O’Keefe and the O’Keefe-run Project Veritas:

Based?

The Hungarian government, along with the Polish government, is considered one of the last in the Western world that’s committed to some form of social conservatism and resistance against neoliberal globalism. Big League Politics has thus closely followed Prime Minister Orban and Hungary over the past several months, reporting on Orban’s various confrontations with George Soros and news such as their proposed constitutional amendment to prevent gay couples from adopting children:
