HYPOCRISY: Turning Point USA Founder Charlie Kirk Shuts Down Free Speech at Politicon Debate

Kirk allegedly sent jackboots after one of his critics at Politicon.

Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder Charlie Kirk, who bills himself as one of the most outspoken advocates for freedom of speech in the US, reportedly shut out dissent from a debate that he had with leftist Kyle Kulinski of Secular Talk at Politicon 2019 last night.

In usual fashion, Kirk paid lip service to the notion of free speech during the debate, bemoaning “speech police” who are “telling people they can’t say certain things” such as “America is the greatest country in the history of the world.”

However, it does not appear that Kirk practices what he preaches. The TPUSA founder allegedly had security personnel ban paleoconservative video blogger Nick Fuentes from attending the event, with several goons blocking Fuentes from entering the venue.

The host of “America First” noted that he was a paying customer of Politcon and had the right to attend the event, but security refused to let him in anyway.

Law enforcement also accosted Fuentes when he went to approach Kirk to have a discussion with him and request a photograph. It seems that Kirk is willing to use the same bullying tactics as the Left when it comes to protecting himself and his organization from unauthorized dissent.

“I wasn’t going to ask him anything. I was just there to watch the event like everybody else. They said I’m going to disrupt. I haven’t been disruptive yet,” Fuentes said to reporter Jorge Ventura following the incident.

“They said that what I tweeted yesterday was indicative of the fact that I might disrupt, that I pose a risk,” Fuentes said of the discussion he had with security personnel.

Kirk is largely being blamed for the backlash against Fuentes at Politicon, as a revolt of young campus conservatives asking uncomfortable questions to Kirk is underway. Kirk has been grilled at events throughout the country where has repeatedly become flustered and offered less-than-adequate responses.

Fuentes has confirmed that the Q&A portion of the debate was removed because of his presence, as Kirk apparently no longer wants to have the robust discussion if he cannot frame its parameters.

Other right-wing commentators are piling on Kirk because of his apparent hypocrisy, as the situation becomes a public relations nightmare for TPUSA.

Another TPUSA speaker told an audience of students at Penn State University just last week that Big Tech censorship does not exist, despite the mountain of evidence to the contrary. Kirk’s organization is fraying at the seams, and the grassroots resistance against TPUSA is only strengthening because of this controversy.

SILENCING TRUMP: Jared Kushner ‘Intervened’ to Stop the President from Joining Gab, Parler

Silencing the President.

Published

on

Jared Kushner reportedly intervened to prevent President Donald Trump from joining free speech social media platforms, according to sources within the Trump administration.

John McEntee, a longtime Trump aide, had encouraged the President to establish a presence on Parler and Gab earlier this week, around the same time that Parler was deplatformed by Amazon oligarch Jeff Bezos for enabling free speech. Kushner reportedly urged the President not to, claiming that the free speech networks were “fringe” and that they weren’t worthy of the President’s brand.

Most Trump supporters in turn view Big Tech’s ideology of extreme censorship and bias against the Right as “extremist” in its own right, a view Kushner apparently doesn’t share.

Sources within the White House indicated Wednesday that President Trump was seriously considering joining one of the platforms. He’s been banned from nearly every social media platform, with Big Tech kingpins desperately seeking an outcome in which the American media environment returns to the stale, neoliberal hegemony of the early 2010’s.

President Trump has suggested he’s interested in playing a role in a social media platform free of the auspices of Big Tech, an opportunity that could potentially prove to be gainful for existing platforms and the deplatformed President.

Trump’s delay in signing up for free speech social media platforms may only be temporary, with his associates under the impression that he’s going to get his historic Twitter account back. In the meantime, Kushner’s actions seem to have silenced the President, delivering a long-sought goal of the leading oligarchs and American corporate media companies.
