Atheist video blogger Hunter Avallone snapped back at Big League Politics and other critics of a recent speech that he gave on behalf of Turning Point USA at Penn State University denying the reality of Big Tech censorship against conservatives.
Avallone posted the video response on YouTube to widespread condemnation on Monday in which he doubled down on his assertion that conservatives are playing the victim and exaggerating claims of conservative voices being systematically booted off platforms:
Avallone pointed to mainstream data in his video, which he believes debunks the notion that conservatives are being targeted for censorship. He claimed that the incredible number of instances of prominent conservatives being booted from platforms are mere “anecdotal evidence” while his data proves his assertions correct.
The first piece of data Avallone cited came from an analysis conducted by the far-left Daily Beast, which showed that conservative outlets outperformed liberal outlets on social media. They pointed to data from Feb. 2019 showing that Fox News received 45 million engagements, the Daily Mail received 38 million engagements and Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire received 30 million engagements on the platform.
This data shows that mainstream conservative websites have no problems on the platform, but it is smaller grassroots competitors – the ones that initially coalesced behind Trump – that are being targeted. Fox News has taken a leftward shift in recent years while Shapiro’s blog produces propaganda on Facebook’s behalf to stay on the platform. Media organizations that have refused to capitulate in the restrictive atmosphere are the ones that have been targeted, not the entities that comply with Big Brother’s demands.
Also, the popularity of conservative media versus the fake news left-wing media is the major reason why the censorship crackdown has been initiated. They are trying to stop Trump’s re-election as well as unplanned, grassroots-driven political movements from being able to occur in the future. Google has admitted as much, as a document leak and hidden camera footage from Project Veritas have shown.
Those facts make the Economist study cited by Avallone which claims that Google rewards reputable reporting, not left-wing politics all the more laughable.
“Overall, center-left sites like The New York Times got the most links, but only about as many as our model suggested. Fox News beat its modest expectations. Because far-right outlets had bad trust scores, they got few search results,” the study concluded. “But so did Daily Kos, a far-left site.”
The Economist measured their results against a model they developed themselves. Because they received fewer left-wing news hits and more right-wing news hits on Google than they had estimated initially, they concluded that Google’s algorithms were designed based on reputability. Google uses arbitrarily-designed “trust scores” to determine search results, which effectively suppresses content outside of the mainstream.
Avallone also pointed to reports that the Trump campaign used Facebook as its secret weapon to unexpectedly win the 2016 presidential election. Avallone cited a 2016 article written shortly after Trump’s victory by Wired that explained Trump’s digital prowess:
“Our biggest incubator that allowed us to generate that money was Facebook,” says Parscale, who has been working for the campaign since before Trump officially announced his candidacy a year and a half ago. Over the course of the election cycle, Trump’s campaign funneled $90 million to Parscale’s San Antonio-based firm, most of which went toward digital advertising. And Parscale says more of that ad money went to Facebook than to any other platform.
“Facebook and Twitter were the reason we won this thing,” he says. “Twitter for Mr. Trump. And Facebook for fundraising.”
In the wake of Trump’s stunning upset last week, media analysts have worked feverishly to figure out how social media may have altered the outcome of this election. They—and we—have pointed to online echo chambers and the proliferation of fake news as the building blocks of Trump’s victory. But the answer may be much simpler. Of course Facebook was hugely influential in the presidential election, in large part because Trump’s campaign embraced Facebook as a key advertising channel in a way that no presidential campaign has before—not even Clinton’s.
Of course, this news is irrelevant considering the large-scale crackdown on conservative voices didn’t occur until well after the 2016 presidential election took place. It happened as a backlash against the grassroots voices that were so influential in pushing Trump to the presidency when the establishment wanted nothing to do with his populist, rabble-rousing campaign.
In his video, Avallone also defended Big Tech for throwing right-wing voices like Laura Loomer, Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes and Milo Yiannopoulos off of their platforms based on their nebulous and capriciously-enforced terms of service. He even attacked Prager University and Stephen Crowder for daring to suggest that Big Tech is censoring conservative voices.
Oddly enough, Avallone didn’t attack President Donald Trump for making the same assertions.
Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others…….

It is clear that Avallone is in opposition of President Trump’s agenda to stop Orwellian censorship on social media platforms, even though he doesn’t have the intellectual courage to come out and say he opposes the President directly.
SHAMEFUL: Fox News Censors Newt Gingrich for Correctly Stating George Soros’ Role in Fomenting BLM Terror
Et tu, Fox News?
A Fox News panel lost their minds earlier today when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned George Soros’ role in supporting Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terror displays.
Gingrich told Fox News host Harris Faulkner that it is district attorneys funded by George Soros who are responsible for the violence because they routinely allow violent rioters to be back on the streets. This is when the situation became extremely awkward and tense.
“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” left-wing panelist Marie Harf interjected.
“He paid for it,” Gingrich responded.
“George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation,” Harf commented.
“Okay,” Gingrich said confusedly. “So it’s verboten.”
“Alright, we’re good,” Faulkner said to cut Gingrich off. The clip ended with a bizarre period of silence before Faulkner tersely changed the subject.

While it may be expected that a liberal commentator might not want to discuss Soros, the fact that Faulkner – a supposedly non-biased straight news anchor – would carry water for the progressive oligarch is highly disconcerting.
Of course, Gingrich brought up a great point about Soros bankrolling far-left DAs who protect rioting terrorists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
Big League Politics reported on how a Soros front ponied up a large donation to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after she vowed to prosecute the McCloskey family for standing up for their rights against a left-wing mob coming to their doorstep:
A front funded by far-left billionaire George Soros has issued a $78,000 donation to the re-election campaign of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who is currently investigating the McCloskey family for defending their property against a marauding mob outside of their home.
The Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC made the donation. This is a Washington, D.C.-based entity that also papered over Gardner’s campaign in 2016. They have apparently re-branded from “Safety and Justice PAC” to “Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC” in order to dupe voters that they are a state-wide organization. Soros’ minions admit the oligarch’s collaboration with the fronts.
“Yes, it’s no secret we contribute to Safety and Justice PACs,” Soros spokesman Michael Vachon, said to Just the News. “We are for criminal justice reform.”
Gardner is railroading the McCloskeys after they were forced to confront left-wing terrorists who had barged through a gate and were threatening their home. The McCloskeys have had their home raided, their firearms confiscated, and their lawyer expects Gardner to officially file charges against them in the days to come.
“I believe the charges are imminent based upon Gardner’s past administrative actions and I believe any charges filed are wholeheartedly unwarranted,” said St. Louis attorney Joel Schwartz, who is serving as legal counsel for the McCloskeys.
Mary Pat Carl, a lawyer who quit her job as a homicide prosecutor after Gardner won election, is attempting to unseat Gardner. She claims that nearly 40 percent of prosecutors have resigned under Gardner’s stewardship, showing how disastrous her tenure has been for the rule of law and public safety.
President Donald Trump has more frequently accused Fox News of being a tool for the globalists in recent months.
.@FoxNews just doesn’t get what’s happening! They are being fed Democrat talking points, and they play them without hesitation or research. They forgot that Fake News @CNN & MSDNC wouldn’t let @FoxNews participate, even a little bit, in the poor ratings Democrat Debates…..

….fraud @donnabrazile (and others who are even worse). Chris Wallace is nastier to Republicans than even Deface the Nation or Sleepy Eyes. The people who are watching @FoxNews, in record numbers (thank you President Trump), are angry. They want an alternative now. So do I!

Based on their covering for Soros’ role in supporting ANTIFA/BLM terrorists, Trump seems to be correct in his assessment. Fox News has been subverted by globalists, and alternative “America First” cable outlets such as OAN and Newsmax need to be supported by Trump supporters.
