A prominent right-wing voice and supposedly conservative organization are leading a digital lynch mob to facilitate Big Tech censorship against prominent Turning Point USA critic Nicholas J. Fuentes.
Fuentes has encouraged his supporters in recent weeks to question Charlie Kirk at his “Culture War” events on campuses throughout the country. They have cajoled Kirk on contentious issues such as his support for mass immigration, the LGBT agenda and foreign aid to Israel.
After Kirk was unable to answer the questions posed by questioners without stammering and spewing anti-Christian insults, there has been a Conservative Inc. backlash against Fuentes that has culminated in the formation of a digital lynch mob to de-platform the paleoconservative video blogger off of Twitter.
Former Trump administration official Sebastian Gorka and the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) are leading the charge against Fuentes, accusing him of being a holocaust denier without pointing to any specific quote that Fuentes made denying the holocaust.

“It is absolutely astounding and inexplicable that the most powerful companies in the world have no problem ignoring this pure evil, let alone offering even more exposure than average, as Twitter did by verifying Fuentes’ account,” ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said.
“I urge Twitter to stop cooperating with Holocaust deniers, anti-Semites, white Supremacists and racists, and to prevent them from having a platform to further spread their vile hate-filled speech,” he added.
This instance of conservative cancel culture shows that many on the Right will use leftist tactics whenever they feel it politically advantageous for them to do so. Principled conservatives are standing with Fuentes though even as Conservative Inc. tries to destroy him.
Lame. Fuck censorship.
I don’t follow Nick, which is exactly what anyone else could do who is upset by his thoughts. https://t.co/CB5SxaFQNK

Thank you. @MichelleMalkin is always consistent.
Will Chamberlain and others pushing to deplatform @NickJFuentes and radicalize young white American men is the dumbest, most immoral act happening on the Atheist Right currently. #FreeSpeech #StopTheBias https://t.co/2itKLQNMAp

I’ve supported Laura Loomer, Gavin McInnes & others deplatformed. Sick of #techcensors & enablers on BOTH sides. You can disagree, debate, or disavow @NickJFuentes but if you support him getting banned from @twitter you have no business calling yourself a #freespeech warrior. https://t.co/PZeYKq6Icr

Maybe not though.
Possible that 2019 America so kayfabe, fake and fragile that it cannot sustain a truly free exchange of ideas.
E.G. A free open internet might simply be inconsistent with present regime/power structure
Now—back to SOCIALISM vs HAMBURGERS!!! https://t.co/JO2XckFP8I

Because of the fall-out that has resulted from Kirk getting grilled at his campus events, two student chapter leaders within the TPUSA organization have already resigned from their positions as a result.
“My misgivings with TPUSA first arose in the aftermath of the Covington Catholic incident. Many TPUSA associates initially sided with the left-wing mob, condemning the innocent high school students for having the gall to smile in the face of an adult’s aggressive behavior,” former Kansas State University chapter leader Jaden McNeil wrote in his resignation letter.
“I harbor no hatred toward homosexuals; however, as a conservative Christian, I do not believe that gay marriage and drag queens should be glorified and promoted,” McNeil explained.
“This particular situation is part of a much larger problem: TPUSA constantly cedes cultural ground to the Left while focusing primarily on economics. The organization often ignores social conservatism altogether,” he added.
Conservative Inc. is in full-blown panic mode, and even if they are successful in lobbying Big Tech to shut Fuentes down, it will not stop the grassroots revolt that is underway against inauthentic conservatism.
YOUR NEW MASTER: Twitter’s Head of Conversational Safety, a “Young, Queer Asian-American Businesswoman,” is “Rethinking” the Concept of User Safety
Do you trust someone like her to make Twitter “a safer place”?
The media company Protocol, a sister site of Politico, recently published an article about Twitter’s new “head of product for conversational safety,” Christine Su. It claims that Su, a “young, queer Asian-American businesswoman,” is revolutionizing what “user safety” on social media means.
Twitter hired Su around six months ago to be in charge of “what might be the most difficult task on Twitter,” despite having no apparent experience in politics, programming, and media relations. But Twitter seems to like her for her “creative” and “somewhat radical new ideas” about user safety.
“As a queer woman of color who is an Asian American in tech in rural America, that experience is a very intersectional one. I’ve had plenty of experiences moving through spaces where I wanted more safety,” Su said.
Protocol writes that Su’s vision incorporates “transformative and procedural justice.” Transformative justice ostensibly refers to a non-retributive form of repairing harm done to someone and preventing it from happening again; procedural justice to enacting a set of rules that “make harm rarer in the first place.”
This all sounds nice and dandy—but beware. So-called transformative and procedural justice will not benefit you, but will crush you. Anything that’s perceived as “harmful” against “women and people from marginalized groups” can and will be used to censor you. Christine Su may reassuringly claim that “the point is not to make the entire world a safe space,” but she’s open about the fact that she will help give the Coalition of the Fringes more control over what people are allowed to do and say on Twitter.
Examples from the article:
- Creating an audio hangout feature called “Spaces,” which will allow users to determine who is allowed to participate, as well as who can speak and when. (Note that it’s being tested on “women and marginalized groups of people” first.)
- Potentially doubling down on functions that “encourage people to read content before reposting it.” (Which is exclusively done to censor or limit the reach of conservative and other right-wing content.)
- Building tools that “create private pathways for apologies, forgiveness and deescalation.” (The finer details are still a work in progress according to Su.)
- Defining what a “meaningful conversation” is. (Would people like Su think that anything right-wingers say or believe belongs in a “meaningful conversation”? Let’s just say I wouldn’t bet money on it…)
You know full well that a company like Facebook would shortly follow suit. After all, it’s not just Twitter that Su is “revolutionizing,” but the concept of social media itself. Figure out where all this is heading.
