While on vacation in Florida, I was informed by other Twitter users that my OkCupid account — which is largely inactive — has been suspended. This was presumably due to my open support for President Donald Trump.
On the weekend following the disastrous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, I had been scheduled to speak at a rally in support of free speech in Boston. Despite many of the speakers being people of color, and the most exciting speaker of the day being Va Shiva from India who addressed the crowd while standing in front of signs that read “Black Lives Do Matter,” the rally was falsely labeled a “white supremacist” rally by the liberal media and the city’s joke of a mayor, Marty Walsh.
Threats and accusations immediately rolled in, from hundreds of people who just blindly follow whatever the mainstream media tells them — and suddenly I was branded a “Nazi” for daring to agree to speak at a rally supporting our most important right. It was exactly what Trump supporters had worried would happen following the “punch a Nazi” meme. All it takes to now be tarred as “literally Hitler,” no matter the color of your skin or actual political beliefs, is support for our president.
The threats and insanity became so graphic that regretfully I cancelled my speech and did not attend the rally.
During the week of liberal mainstream media engaging in their Nazi witch hunt, many companies began to publicly declare that they would not be providing service to “white supremacists.” One of those companies was OkCupid.
On Thursday, OkCupid very publicly kicked off Unite the Right speaker Chris Cantwell. They announced their decision on Twitter, writing “there is no room for hate in a place where you’re looking for love.” The company also asked users to report other accounts that they believe to be involved in hate groups — which, if you ask a liberal, is anyone right of Karl Marx.
While Cantwell frequently discusses race, I do not. My support for free speech, and our president, has nothing to do with the color of my own skin — nor anyone else’s. That apparently does not matter to the hysterical left — including those who make decisions for this crappy dating site that I don’t even use.
“OkCupid has zero tolerance for racism. We make a lot of [decisions] every day that are tough. Banning Christopher Cantwell was not one of them,” Chief executive Elie Seidman said in a statement to Gizmodo.
I rejoined okcupid a few hours ago because I was bored. No regrets. pic.twitter.com/okvXo7BN5q

The people who have messaged me their hateful fantasies about me over my support for our president remain active on the website.
I personally believe that companies have a right to deny service to anyone they want. Next time a bakery doesn’t want to serve someone whose lifestyle or opinions is contrary to the baker’s religion, there better not be a peep of virtue signalling from OkCupid.
I have reached out to OkCupid to confirm that my ban was due to supporting the president — as obviously they will be unable to provide a shred of evidence that I am racist or belong to a “hate group.” The company had not responded by press time.
