WTF: Turning Point USA Speaker Claims Big Tech Censorship Against Conservatives Isn’t Real

Atheist TPUSA speaker Hunter Avallone claims that Big Tech censorship isn’t real despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Atheist video blogger Hunter Avallone, who appears on the speaking circuit for Turning Point USA (TPUSA) events, told a crowd during a speech at Penn State University on Thursday that “conservatives are not being censored online the way big conservative names have claimed.”

Avallone appeared at the TPUSA event with Carl “Sargon of Akkad” Benjamin to discuss free speech. He stated his beliefs that conservatives complaining about Big Tech censorship are “playing the victim” because they are only concerned with “fame and money.”

Parts of his speech where he denied Big Tech censorship can be seen here:

After he took heat on social media over his comments, Avallone became defiant on his Instagram account. He viciously maligned paleoconservative video blogger Nick Fuentes and conspiracy researcher Mark Dice for reacting to his shocking denialism about Big Tech censorship.

Avallone’s comments come in spite of a mountain of evidence contradicting his point. Big League Politics has published dozens of articles about the ongoing purge of right-wing voices such as Laura Loomer, James Allsup, Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes, Milo Yiannopoulos, and many others from major social media platforms.

Facebook has recently demonstrated anti-Christian bigotry in their Big Brother censorship, as their targeting of pro-life Christians has even caught the ire of Republican Senators:

Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Mike Braun issued a scathing letter to Facebook on Wednesday, calling them out for their anti-Christian censorship against the pro-life activists at LiveAction.

“Your company, like Twitter, Google, Pinterest and so many of the other major social media firms in Silicon Valley, has repeatedly been presented with evidence of bias against those with conservative viewpoints, especially on the issue of abortion,” states the letter, which is addressed to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The Senators and the primary victim of Facebook’s censorship campaign, Live Action President Lila Rose, demanded that the social media provider reverse their arbitrary distinction of “fake news” and issue an apology.

“The platform should be a place for the free exchange of ideas, not one where only pro-abortion arguments are allowed. Live Action has asked Facebook to rectify this situation by rescinding their fact-check, sending a new notification to all users about the change, and apologizing, as well as reforming their “fact-check” process,” Rose wrote.

However, Facebook has done the exact opposite of the responsible thing to do. They are thumbing their noses at the federal government, and doubling down on their censorship campaign against LiveAction and by extension the pro-life community.

Avallone’s apologetics for Big Tech censorship comes following news that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is wooing conservative thought leaders in order to form strategic partnerships as his tech monopoly comes under increased scrutiny:

It was revealed on Monday that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been holding off-the-record dinners at his home with top conservative thought leaders hoping to curry favor with them and form alliances…

Individuals Zuckerberg has reportedly dined with include Fox News host Tucker Carlson, talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell, neoconservative Sen. Lindsey Graham, Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York, Town Hall editor Guy Benson, think-tank contributor Matt Continetti, and ‘Never Trump’ crusader Ben Shapiro.

A spokesperson for Facebook downplayed the importance of the gatherings, saying, “For years, Mark Zuckerberg has met with elected officials and thought leaders all across the political spectrum.”

A source close to the situation told Politico that Zuckerberg talked with the right-wing personalities about “free expression, unfair treatment of conservatives, the appeals process for real or perceived unfair treatment, fact checking, partnerships, and privacy.”

Avallone may have become the latest popular voice in conservative media to succumb to the powerful influence of Big Tech lobbyists.

Canadian Court Rules That Businessman Has the Right to Sue Twitter for Defamation

This could be a gamechanger.

Published

A Canadian court has ruled that Frank Giustra, a billionaire from British Columbia who sits on the board of the Clinton Foundation, is able to sue Twitter for defamation.

Giustra is suing Twitter after users of the platform accused him of being connected to “PizzaGate,” the theory that gained traction on social media that there is a child sex ring of some sort operating out of a ritzy Washington D.C. pizza joint.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Elliott Myers would not comment on the merits of Giustra’s case when he made his ruling. He noted that Twitter would be protected in American courts due to the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, but those protections might not necessarily apply in the Canadian courts.

“The presumption is that a defendant should be sued in only one jurisdiction for an alleged wrong, but that is not a simple goal to achieve fairly for internet defamation,” Myers wrote.

“I do not agree with Twitter who argues that ‘of all places in the world, the plaintiff’s reputation has not been harmed in B.C.’,” he added.

Giustra is happy with Myers’ decision and hopes that he is able to hold Twitter accountable once the case is heard in court.

“I hope this lawsuit will help raise public awareness of the real harm to society if social media platforms are not held responsible for the content posted and published on their sites,” he said. 

“I believe that words do matter, and recent events have demonstrated that hate speech can incite violence with deadly consequences,” Giustra added.

Big League Politics has reported on how Twitter and other tech giants have hidden behind legal protections in order to enforce a partisan political agenda:

The communications directors at many Big Tech entities – including Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat – have been revealed as veteran Democrat Party operatives…

Much of what is posted by Starbuck holds up to journalistic scrutiny. Twitter communications director Nick Pacillo once worked as a spokesman for Democrat vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris while she was California attorney general. It has been alleged that he continues to serve her in his privileged role with Twitter, as supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) believe the platform blocked donations for their preferred presidential candidate while he was running against Harris.

Meanwhile Andy Stone – who serves as Facebook’s Policy Communications Director – has been working in various capacities to assure Democrat victory for over a decade. He was celebrated for his career of service to the Democrats when he joined their House Majority PAC in 2012…

If Big Tech cannot be defeated in the courts, a full-scale nationalization of these entities may be the last option to stop the permanent manifestation of the Orwellian nightmare.
