Former editor-in-chief of Breitbart London Raheem Kassam’s Facebook account has been restored following pressure from the conservative community.
“Following this intervention from [Donald Trump Jr.] and others, Facebook has now reinstated my account. Thank you to Don Jr. and all the others who got so involved and ahead on this story. I’ve no doubt you frightened Facebook into acting,” Kassam said on Twitter.
Trump Jr. mocked the Silicon Valley titans like Facebook in the wake of Kassam’s ban. The companies often seem to “accidentally” ban conservatives, but never liberals who threaten violence or otherwise break their terms of service. That was Facebook’s excuse for banning Kassam.
The former editor-in-chief of Brietbart London was banned from Facebook Tuesday, making him the second high-profile conservative casualty of tech censorship in as many days.
“What a thing to wake up to. My personal Facebook profile has been deleted, with no warning or explanation. I can no longer administer my fan page, with over 150,000 likes,” Raheem Kassam announced on Twitter.
To some, Kassam is a controversial right-wing figure. He is not an extremist as the far left, especially in the ever-more-totalitarian Mother England, would have ordinary people believe.
“While suppression of conservative thought is nothing new, it seems Facebook are moving into more mainstream territory now, considering I am a multiple bestselling author, and a main stage speaker at CPAC,” Kassam told Big League Politics.
The Conservative Political Action Conference will take place in Washington, D.C., this weekend.
“This means no one is now off limits from the heavy hand of social media giant censorship,” Kassam continued.
Kassam’s case shows what can happen when high-profile conservative go to bat for those affected by tech censorship. The problem, of course, is that not everyone can have Trump Jr. in their corner.
Ordinary Americans are generally powerless against the likes of big tech, an issue that must be addressed by those with power before conservatism is eradicated from the public square.

SHAMEFUL: Apple is Lobbying to Undercut Law Condemning Chinese Slave Labor
Big Tech is addicted to Chinese slave labor.
The Washington Post reported over the weekend that tech company Apple is lobbying to undermine a law condemning China’s use of slave labor.
WaPo claimed that two congressional staffers are saying that Apple lobbyists are trying to undermine the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. The Act, which passed the House of Representatives by 403-6 in September, audits importers and tech companies for potential use of Uyghur slave labor in China.
China’s persecution of its Turkic Muslim Uyghur minority is well known, with some observers speculating that the mercantile-Communist nation has moved up to a million Uyghurs to detainment camps in the Xinjang province.
Many have questioned whether Apple itself is benefiting from the use of forced Uyghur labor. Lobbying company Fierce Government relations has accepted $90,000 from the company to lobby against anti-China legislation, the Daily Caller reported on Saturday.
Apple has utilized Chinese government-run enterprises to manufacture its products for years. Global criticism of China and damage to its reputation has led the $2 trillion company to consider moving some of its manufacturing to India, a country globalist oligarchs are increasingly looking towards as a reservoir of cheap labor for outsourcing purposes.
Globalist monopolies such as Apple don’t compete within a “free market.” They secure access to governmental power in American and abroad and ruthlessly use it to their advantage.
