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.
San Francisco Anti-Big Tech Free Speech Rally Attacked by ANTIFA Mob
One man was seriously injured.
Left wing thugs viciously beat at least one pro-free speech demonstrator at an impromptu rally in San Francisco’s United Nations plaza.
Conservatives had rallied in defense of free speech against the tyranny of Big Tech platforms that are quartered in the city, most notably Twitter. The demonstration occurred in response to some of the most severe censorship in American history from social media companies in recent days, hiding evidence of corruption and shady foreign business deals on the part of Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son.

Philip Anderson, the man who organized the rally, was seriously injured in the assault, which occurred when he crossed a barricade shielding patriotic demonstrators from furious leftists. He lost at least one tooth from a sucker punch.
The screaming leftists who surrounded Anderson chanted racial slurs at the Trump supporter, who is black.

A photographer with the AP described a leftist mob of “hundreds” “attacking” the free speech rally, entirely disrupting the event. Political protests are rare in San Francisco, where Silicon Valley-style neoliberal authoritarians dominate nearly every facet of everyday life.
The left doesn’t want to respect the First Amendment rights of those that oppose it. It’ll settle for nothing less than political domination, and will gladly use violence in pursuit of such ends.
The pro-free speech demonstrators don’t appear to have been deterred, and are said to have been preparing another free speech rally outside the headquarters of Twitter itself.
Upon seeing Anderson’s injuries, supporters have pitched in more than $6,000 for medical expenses needed from the cheap shot assault. Donate here.
