After being smeared by The Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer, Big League Politics can confirm that conservative commentator Gavin McInnes has been suspended from Instagram. At the time of his ban, his account had over 150,000 followers. Instagram did not give a reason for the suspension, but it comes a short while after he was banned on Twitter for violating their policy on “violent extremist groups.”
The account, which was home to mostly pictures from his day-to-day life, also featured posts promoting his CRTV show Get Off My Lawn, as well as posts about the Proud Boys, a fraternal organization he founded in 2016.
Sommer’s Daily Beast article headlined “Instagram Is the Alt-Right’s New Favorite Haven,” discusses a number of figures who would not describe themselves as “alt-right.” Among them are Alex Jones, who was banned from Facebook and Twitter earlier this year, comedian Owen Benjamin, and conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.
The article begins discussing the alleged Synagogue shooter who murdered 11 people people over the weekend who had an account on Gab, a completely separate social network, and then quickly shifts to to discussing the aforementioned figures, and the terrible crime they are committing by using a social networking service.
While McInnes is the only of those figures to be suspended, the others could be next. Big League Politics spoke to Yiannopoulos about the story, and in response he blasted journalists like Sommer as the most effective and dangerous political operatives in the Democrat Party, saying:
“This is now a tried and tested “reporting” strategy from CNN and the Daily Beast: One, confect outrage about a few innocuous jokes from a couple of right-wing people. Two, string together your own bulls*** as evidence of a “trend.” Finally, start amping up the pressure on that social network to drop the banhammer on an entire political movement for the crime of expressing themselves in a light-hearted way, on the basis of headlines that upon inspection reveal nothing more than an edgy sense of humor among conservative media figures. Journalists at these publications are the most effective and dangerous political operatives the Democrat Party has.”
This is just the latest left-wing attack on free speech.
Big League Politics reached out to Will Sommer for comment, but he (surprisingly politely) declined to speak to us.
University Professor Threatens to ‘Document’ Nick Sandmann’s Behavior on Campus, Calls His Beliefs ‘Atrocious and Uninformed’
Cultural marxism in action.
A university professor posted a public screed against conservative hero Nick Sandmann on Facebook before backtracking after being called out for bias.
The exchange began after a left-wing activist wished that Transylvania University, the small Kentucky college that the former Covington Catholic student is now attending, would discriminate against Sandmann because of his conservative beliefs.
“Does anyone else think it’s a bit of a stain on Transylvania University for accepting Nick Sandman? I’m sure it’s a “both sides” defense, but it’s pretty counter to their mission and another instance of there not actually being equal sides to an issue. I think TU should accept anyone willing to have an open mind and engage in debate, regardless of their views. That’s how we all learn. That’s Transy’s mission,” wrote Samuel Crankshaw of the Kentucky ACLU in a Facebook post.
“But this kid clearly is a provocateur in training with no intention of learning. He exists only to troll, intimidate and play victim. He and his attorney proudly use their national platforms to promote QAnon, which has *literally* been the direct cause of multiple instances of violence (not to mention all of the other batshit stuff). He is proudly defending Kyle Rittenhouse, who murdered two people for exercising political speech. Ironically, this silenced victim is running with Don Jr., spoke at the GOP convention, has a bill in his honor at the General Assembly, has attended private schools, has a national law firm representing him, etc. So silenced. He’s no different from the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos, but he is more dangerous,” Crankshaw continued.
“Having experienced the incredibly high standards Transy requires for admission and then holds its students to, this seems like a slap in the face. I hope some time in a real classroom changes him, but his twitter and public persona suggest otherwise,” he wrote to conclude his rant.
While it’s one thing for a left-wing activist and proud snowflake to have these viewpoints, a faculty member responded and echoed many of Crankshaw’s sentiments against Sandmann.
“While I certainly don’t support or agree with his views, and find his public behavior and rhetoric atrocious and uninformed, we can’t not admit academically qualified students due to their political and personal views,” wrote Dr. Avery Tompkins, who works as Assistant Professor and Diversity Scholar at Transylvania University.
“If he were to cause problems by being disruptive, trolling, or engaging in unethical behavior of any kind, I would immediately document it…and he would just be putting himself in a position for me to file a conduct report,” Tomkins continued.
“I’m interested in knowing why he chose Transy, whose mission is the antithesis of what he believes and promotes,” she added.
A screenshot of the entire exchange can be seen here:
Tompkins was immediately challenged by conservatives, including podcaster Rocco Lucente, for threatening to report Sandmann if he expresses his uncensored beliefs as a student.
“It’s amazing how faculty at universities now have ZERO issues with openly positing how they will discriminate against a potential future student of theirs in the event that they actually have to do their jobs and teach them,” Lucente wrote.
In Tompkins’ response to Lucente, she said that Sandmann would not be subject to scrutiny that is different than what any other conservative student receives on campus. The left-wing gestapo is not out to get Sandmann specifically, but out to crush all dissent to cultural marxism with extreme prejudice.
“I said I would welcome him into my class and would treat him the same as any student,” Tomkins explained.
Lucente is reporting Tomkins’ words to Sandmann’s attorneys, who have already secured settlements for Sandmann from other entities that defamed him. Sandmann may be able to cash out yet again due to Tomkins’ cruel sentiments.
