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.
University of Pennsylvania Workers Overwhelmingly Support the Democrat Party
From Top to Bottom Universities are in the Tank for Democrats
Employees at the University of Pennsylvania are overwhelmingly in the tank for the Democrat Party.
Ophelia Jacobson of Campus Reform reported that University of Pennsylvania employees contributed to Democrat candidates, campaigns, and organizations between 2019 and 2020. Campus Reform was able to gather the data by turning to the Federal Election Commission.
Per the Campus Reform analysis, a whopping 97.6 percent of campaign contributions in 2019 and 2020 made by Penn instructors, staff, and administrators were sent to “Democratic organizations, candidates, and their campaigns.” Some of these groups and causes included ActBlue, Win the Era PAC, Biden for President, and MoveOn Political Action.
To get more specific, of the 715 donations that Penn faculty members made, just 11 were sent to Republican candidates, institutions or campaigns. This number represented 1.5 percent of campaign contributions pitched in by faculty members. The remaining 98.4 percent of donations were sent to Democrat causes.
Staff contributions showed similar trends. 97.6 percent of contributions were sent to Democrat campaigns, candidates, or organizations, whereas 2.4 percent were sent to Republicans.
Penn administrators donated 731 times during the time-frame of 2019 and 2020. Curiously, 21 of those 731 contributions (2.8 percent) were only made to Republican causes and the remainder (97.1 percent) were sent to Democrat causes.
This analysis reported that ActBlue was the principal organization that Penn workers donated to as far as Democrats institutions were concerned. In contrast, WinRed was the largest recipient of donations of all the Republican organizations.
Just another case of an American institution of higher learning being filled with leftist staff across the board. Let’s face it, universities are a magnet for the Left and work to perpetuate such a political paradigm.
Conservatives should take note. These institutions and the drones who work for them are the enemy. In light of this, the Right should aim to defund public universities and make sure to attend alternative educational institutions if possible. These institutions do not deserve a single penny from right wingers.
