Censorship is alive and well on America’s political left as a restaurant in Lexington, VA faces backlash for telling Trump Administration Press Secretary Sarah Sanders that she was not allowed to dine there.
“This business recently made waves in the news, which often means that people come to this page to post their views on the news,” says a banner post on the Red Hen Restaurant’s Yelp page.
“While we don’t take a stand one way or the other when it comes to these news events, we do work to remove both positive and negative posts that appear to be motivated more by the news coverage itself than the reviewer’s personal consumer experience with the business.”
Yelp has actively decided that Red Hen should be protected from the negative press it receives in the wake of a decision it made as a business. Once again, this censorship policy works in favor of the leftist company that hates President Trump, and against conservatives who wish to express their honest opinion on a public forum.
“When businesses make the news, their Yelp business page can be affected. Media-fueled reviews typically violate our Content Guidelines, one of which deals with relevance. Yelp reviews are required to describe a firsthand consumer experience, not what someone read in the news. Our user support team ultimately removes reviews that violate these guidelines,” said a Yelp spokesperson told Big League Politics via email.
But the culture of open and free expression that once existed in America would appear to be shifting, and not in favor of conservatism.
The political left is often immune from criticism, while it is open season for censorship of conservative ideas. Conservative speakers are consistently blackballed and rioted against on college campuses if they dare show up and express an opinion that a leftist disagrees with. Ask Ann Coulter or Jordan Peterson. Conservatives are consistently de-platformed on social media networks like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. Conservative news sites are “fact-checked” by partisan hacks like Snopes and PolitiFact, who claim to be arbiters of truth but instead are political pawns.
Tennessee High School Principal Suspended for Speaking Against Big Tech Censorship
Welcome to an Orwellian hellworld.
The principal of a Tennessee high school has been suspended from his duties for daring to criticize the unprecedented censorship enacted by Big Tech companies against President Donald Trump earlier this month.
Principal Barton Thorne of Cordova High School in Memphis had been speaking in a teleconference in which he condemned the riot at the US Capitol. Throne also slammed the censorship that followed the event, comparing Twitter and Facebook’s censorship to Joseph McCarthy’s sham accusations in the 1950’s.
“There have been times even in American history where a small group of people decided what you could hear. You think about “McCarthyism. If you don’t know about that, you can Google that or talk to your Social Studies teacher,” said Thorne.
“It’s what’s going on with Twitter and Facebook and Google and Apple, and their decision as private companies to filter and to decide what you, you hear and know about.”
Thorne was almost immediately suspended by the Shelby County School district, pending an official “review” of his totally innocuous comments. Thorne later drafted an email apology, bowing for his transgression against the authority of tech oligarchs.
The American education used to instill the values of free speech and political liberty in those it taught. Fidelity to such concepts have been cast to the wayside, sidelined in favor of indoctrination into the American elite’s racial caste system and liberal ideology.
