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.
VILE: New York Times Claims U.S. Military ‘Celebrates White Supremacy’ on Memorial Day
The fake news hates America.
To commemorate Memorial Day, the New York Times published an op/ed claiming that the U.S. military celebrates white supremacy.
The op/ed was signed by the entire editorial board of the Times, showing how this view is ubiquitous among everyone on the fake news rag. They argue that the U.S. military celebrates white supremacy because they have not sufficiently pissed on the graves of ancestors deemed to be racist by Cultural Marxists.
The editorial board claims that “innocent intentions cannot obscure the truth that secessionists embarked on the Civil War to guarantee the rights of some human beings to own others, or the fact that the Confederate banner represents the same white supremacist values as — and is often displayed in tandem with — the Nazi swastika.”
They are pushing for the U.S. military to rename their bases that are named after Confederate generals, as the leftists march to degrade American culture in their relentless push to transform the nation.
“This same toxic legacy clings to the 10 United States military installations across the South that were named for Confederate Army officers during the first half of the 20th century,” the Times editorial board wrote.
“Apologists often describe the names as a necessary gesture of reconciliation in the wake of the Civil War. In truth, the namings reflect a federal embrace of white supremacy that found its most poisonous expression in military installations where black servicemen were deliberately placed under the command of white Southerners — who were said to better “understand” Negroes — and confined to substandard housing, segregated transportation systems and even “colored only” seating in movie houses,” they added.
The cultural genocide is not just extended to Confederate ancestors, but also to the Founding Fathers as well. The Times has pushed revisionist anti-American history through the 1619 Project, which has stated blatantly false claims about America seceding from the British to protect the institute of slavery.
Big League Politics has reported about how the Left is coming after all symbols honoring American heritage and the founding-era revolutionaries who put their lives on the line to establish liberty:
After a San Francisco school board voted to paint over a mural depicting the life of George Washington, over 500 academics signed an open letter urging the board to reverse course.
This decision was made after accusations of the mural traumatizing students and glorifying “slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny, white supremacy, oppression.” USA Today reported that hundreds of educators are protesting this decision, calling it a “gross violation of logic” as the mural actually represents “a significant monument of anti-racism.”
The mural was created by Russian-American painter Victor Arnautoff in 1936, according to a report from the Richmond District Blog. Some of the mural’s images were attacked during the civil rights movement over its portrayal of slavery and Native Americans…
Rachael Z. DeLue, an Art History and American Studies professor at Princeton University, told USA Today that the mural shouldn’t be removed:
“If we cover it up and we whitewash it, not only are we doing a disservice to history, but we’re also doing a disservice to those who suffered at the hands of European-descended Americans: slaves and Native Americans who were traumatized and killed.”
DeLue added, “It’s also the case that this isn’t simply of the past. The legacies of slavery and federal policy about Native Americans live on in the present.”
Paul Von Blum, a senior lecturer in African American studies and communications studies at University of California, Los Angeles, suggested that students become more mentally tough.
“I know it causes students to cringe, but that’s the function of art,” Von Blum said to USA Today. “And art should never be censored.”
The New York Times openly hates America and wants the nation to be destroyed and its people to be subjugated. The fake news is the enemy of the people.
