VICE News Openly Advocates Political Violence — Will They Be Banned?

Big tech is revealing a massive double standard.

VICE News Political Violence

Yesterday VICE News published an article offering its audience advice and instruction on how to prepare milkshakes to hurl at “fascists” like United Kingdom MEP Nigel Farage, actively advocating and inciting violence against conservatives, and apparently will receive no punishment for doing so.

On May 28, VICE News published an articled titled “How to Make the Perfect Milkshake for Throwing at Fascists”, written by Kim Kelly, a “journalist” who apparently covers what the publication considers “fascism” and metal music.

In the article, Kelly celebrates British politicians Nigel Farage and Tommy Robinson having milkshakes hurled at their person, in what Kelly describes as “the latest trend that’s swept the young anti-fascist players of the British left.”

Kelly describes this as “activists or regular-ass people who are fed up with the state of things”, who take “matters into their own hands, through either violent or nonviolent means,” appearing to admit that hurling a milkshake constitutes violence, or specifically, assault.

The authorities in the United Kingdom appear to agree on this point, considering they arrested the man who allegedly hurled the frosty treat at Farage and charged him with common assault and criminal damage.

Facebook, Twitter, and other big tech platforms have actively banned conservatives for doing much less. The original ban of Alex Jones and Infowars was sparked by a debunked conspiracy theory that Jones instructed his audience to go to the homes of grieving parents with assault rifles, and the followup ban of Jones by Facebook and Instagram, which may see users banned if they dare to post a link or video containing the Infowars founder, was justified by calling Jones both “dangerous” and a “hate figure.”

Similarly, Gavin McInnes saw his livelihood destroyed and a total purge from social media after the Southern Poverty Law Center determined him to be a “hate figure.” He has been banned from Facebook and Twitter as a result.

Yet, VICE News and Kelly appear to escape consequences for their advocacy of political violence.

Kelly may attempt to characterize assaulting a person with a frozen concoction as a “temporarily inconvenience [to] powerful men,” but following the advice in the article will almost certainly result in an arrest and criminal charge for anyone who takes it.

Worse, this type of advocacy of political violence could lead to escalated violence. This may have already started, as earlier this month Robinson supporters had bricks hurled at them during a campaign event outside Manchester, England.

This illustrates an apparent double standard from the big tech giants. If a conservative can have statements taken out of context to appear to advocate some form of violence, they will likely be purged from all social media, and their supporters will be threatened with bans for defending them.

On the other hand, if a major left wing news outlet, which refers to its readers affectionately as “comrades”, explicitly endorses political violence, they get a free pass.

Google Engineer Admits to Company’s Political Censorship, Election Interference in New Project Veritas Sting #ExposeGoogle

Busted.

A Google engineer admits that the tech monopoly is favoring Democrats and seeking to harm President Donald Trump’s electoral prospects in a new sting video released by Project Veritas on Monday.

Ritesh Lakhar, a Technical Program Manager for the California search engine company, admits that Google is seeking to “play God” by controlling the free flow of political information through its platforms.

He openly admits that Google is clamping down on conservative content that is amenable to the electoral prospects of Donald Trump, while seeking to promote Joe Biden. It’s no mere coincidence that the first search results for ‘Donald Trump’ come back with negative results, according to Lakhar.

If Trump says something… Misinformation, you’re going to delete that because it’s illegal under whatever pretext. And if a Democratic leader says that, then you’re gonna leave it like that.

I disagree with the corporations playing God and taking away freedom of speech on both sides, basically.

Lakhar goes on to speak of his moral reservations to engaging in Google’s job outsourcing programs, sending American jobs to China.

I can’t keep doing this. Go and teach Chinese people how to do American jobs and come back and get survived on the way. Morally and ethically I disagree… I feel suffocated at Google.

Tech companies such as Twitter, Google and Facebook have implemented a level of political censorship never before seen in the history of the United States in the runup to the 2020 presidential election. It’s time for a regulatory standard that treats these monopolies as utilities, and ensures access to the digital public square for all.
