Concerns about Big Tech Censorship remain Despite the Remonetization of Antonia Okafor’s Channel
Despite initial reports of having her entire YouTube channel demonetized, gun rights activist Antonia Okafor was able to restore advertising on her channel after considerable backlash against YouTube was generated on Twitter.
The CEO of EmPOWERed, a gun rights organization that teaches the proper exercise of gun rights to college-age women in America, Okafor saw her entire YouTube channel demonetized on April 24th.
YouTube went straight to just demonetizing my ENTIRE channel today.

This came in response to a recent upload of a video where Okafor and Nina Prevot, a libertarian activist, interviewed Amy Robbins about teaching women self-defense.
Some of Twitter’s leading conservative personalities instantly came to Okafor’s defense.
Lila Rose, the president of the pro-life group Live Action, claimed that YouTube’s action was “Blatant viewpoint suppression.”

Prager U, who sued YouTube in 2017 over the channel’s coordinated efforts to suppress its content, also chimed in, asking “Why is supporting the second amendment controversial?”
Political commentator Dave Rubin opined, “Does YouTube have a problem with black conservative women? Appears so.”

In light of all this pushback, YouTube immediately re-instated Okafor’s channel to the YouTube Partner Program, citing that it was “incorrectly removed”.
A YouTube spokesperson told Breitbart News, “We enforce our YouTube Partner Program policies vigorously, consistently and without any political bias. In the case of this channel, it was incorrectly removed from the Program. With the massive volume of videos on our platform, sometimes we make the wrong call on content. The channel has been reinstated in the YouTube Partner Program.”
In the same Breitbart report, YouTube had also been exposed for adjusting search results “on behalf of progressive anti-gun activist David Hogg and Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters.”
Although Okafor did escape potential long-term harm, this is another sign of Big Tech’s war against conservatives.
Since the Parkland shooting, anti-gun activists have used conventional legislative means to push control. However, they face obvious road blocks at the federal level with Donald Trump as President and a Republican-controlled Senate.
Now, they’ve turned to the corporate boardroom.
BLP has reported on corporate bigwigs throwing their support behind anti-gun legislation like universal gun registration, as well as companies like Dick’s Sporting Goods implementing anti-gun policies as a means of virtue-signaling their support for anti-gun causes.
This recent incident involving Okafor’s YouTube channel may be a trial run of what is to come for gun rights activists as the 2020 elections approach.
Mexico is in Third Place for Wuhan Virus Deaths Yet Democrats Still Want to Open the Floodgates to Mass Migration
According to the John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, Mexico is ranked in third place for Wuhan virus deaths.
The country has 462,690 confirmed cases, with 50,517 people having died from the virus. This puts Mexico’s case fatality rate at 10.9 percent
According to a report from Breitbart News, Mexican officials assert that the “high number of fatalities is due to the fact that people are fat and eat junk food.”
There is speculation that the numbers disclosed by the Mexican government have been filled with cases of rampant undercounting. Some officials believe that the numbers could be three times as high as those officially recorded, according to a Breitbart Texas report.
As of August 7, 2020, the following countries led the way in terms of Wuhan virus related deaths.
- United States — 160,104 fatalities
- Brazil — 98,493 fatalities
- Mexico — 50,517 fatalities
Although the conventional narrative is that high diabetes and obesity rates contributed to Mexico’s high Wuhan virus death count, Ildefonso Ortiz of Breitbart News pointed to information from the government epidemiology oversight database which “revealed that in Mexico City, many of the fatal patients were actually otherwise-healthy young adults who did not have access to a ventilator” according to a Forbes report.
Regardless of what the root causes of Mexico’s Wuhan virus death are, the U.S. needs to get serious about fully securing its border.
Let’s face it, Mexico is a failed state and its problems will inevitably make their way to the U.S. if the border remains relaxed.
With Democrat candidate Joe Biden calling for radical open borders policies, the U.S. is on the cusp of unleashing a tidal wave of social and public health dysfunction should he beat President Trump in November.
The Trump administration needs to get serious about this matter and completely secure the border while exposing Biden’s mass migration radicalism.
