  • EXCLUSIVE: Chick-fil-A To Stop Donations To Charities With Anti-LGBT Views

    Biznow ^ | November 18, 2019 | Cameron Sperance
    As Chick-fil-A expands globally and into more liberal parts of the U.S., the chicken chain plans to change which charities it donates to after years of bad press and protests from the LGBT community. Beginning next year, Chick-fil-A will move away from its current philanthropic structure, Bisnow has learned. After donating to more than 300 charitable organizations this year, the Atlanta-based fast-food chain will instead focus on three initiatives with one accompanying charity each: education, homelessness and hunger. "There's no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are," Chick-fil-A...

    Facebook on Tuesday released its plans for the new board previously likened to a “Supreme Court” that can overturn the company’s own content moderation decisions.The new “Oversight Board” will govern appeals from Facebook users and questions from the company itself. The board will eventually consist of 40 members with three-year terms drawn from a diverse array of backgrounds, according to Facebook. Panels of five members will deliberate on cases it chooses to take. A minimum of 11 members will be required for the board to function. Facebook said in a press release it plans to have the board in place...

    Breitbart ^ | 28 Aug 2019 | Joshua Caplan
    The flailing 2020 presidential campaign of former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) claimed Wednesday that a staffer ejected Breitbart News senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak from a speech at Benedict College, a historically black college, to protect black students. In a statement Wednesday, O’Rourke’s press secretary, Aleigha Cavalier, attempted to defend against the growing controversy stemming from Pollak’s removal, claiming that while the candidate “believes in the right to a free press,” Breitbart News “walks the line between being news and a perpetrator of hate speech.” “Given this particular Breitbart employee’s previous hateful reporting and the sensitivity of the topics...

    A group known as The Climate Mobilization, which has called for a World War II-style mobilization to combat “climate change” and is aligned with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Bernie Sanders, is criticizing American media outlets for allowing “climate deniers” to express their views. As such, the group wants media to ban them in an effort to silence all opposition to “climate change” rhetoric. “Some media outlets are sacrificing the future of our planet for the sake of appearing objective,” Margaret Klein Salamon, founder and executive director of The Climate Mobilization, said in a news release Saturday. “This idea...

    August 7, 2019 (NewsBusters) — The left has no problem with hiding behind activist teenagers, but will scapegoat a right-wing one if she criticizes them. YouTube, Google's sister company, deplatformed a 14-year-old conservative girl after she made a video criticizing Pride Month. Her channel has been completely banned from YouTube. Soph, known on Twitter as @sewernugget, has been penalized by YouTube previously with suspension for "dangerous" humor and poking fun at leftist orthodoxy. With approximately 1 million subscribers before she was shut down, she rose to fame for poking fun at topics such as radical Islam, climate change, and pedophilia...

    Facebook and Google increasingly influence Congress as the social media giants censor conservative and alternative voices, dominate the Internet, and violate Americans’ privacy. Facebook announced on Thursday that they have banned several conservative personalities such as Infowars host Alex Jones, Infowars contributor and YouTube personality Paul Joseph Watson, journalist and activist Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulus. The social media giant also banned Louis Farrakhan from its platforms. Facebook said that they banned these personalities because they were “dangerous.” Amid calls for greater regulation of social media companies’ potential anticompetitive behavior, censorship of conservative and alternative voices, and privacy violations, Facebook...
  • CNN Host Asks If FBI Should Have ‘Shut Down’ Trump Supporters Chanting ‘Lock Her Up

    CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour called "lock her up" chants by Donald Trump supporters "hate speech" in a new interview and asked James Comey if he wished he had "shut down that language" in his capacity as FBI Director at the time. Amanpour recounted the frequent chants at Trump 2016 campaign rallies about imprisoning Hillary Clinton for her perceived crimes and wondered if they should have been legal, but Comey responded it was not the role of government officials to censor that speech. "Do you, in retrospect, wish that people like yourself, the head of the FBI, the people in charge...

    Facebook and Instagram will finally ban white nationalism and white separatism on their networks in a move that will be implemented next week. The decision, first reported by Motherboard but announced by Facebook on its website, comes after the social media giant spent years splitting hairs about the difference between white nationalism and white supremacy. And there’s still the question of how well Facebook can police white nationalist content among its 2 billion users. “Our policies have long prohibited hateful treatment of people based on characteristics such as race, ethnicity or religion – and that has always included white supremacy,”...

    After more than a year of litigation, the University of California, Berkeley, has settled a lawsuit with the Young Americas Foundation and the UC Berkeley College Republicans. Campus conservatives accused the university of bias in the process of bringing high-profile speakers to campus. The original lawsuit revolved around the cancellation of an event with Ann Coulter. An amended version of the lawsuit included road blocks initiated by the university for an event with Ben Shapiro. The Department of Justice filed a statement of interest backing the campus conservatives. The crux of their argument revolved around two campus policies that they...

    LANGLEY, British Columbia, 14 August, 12 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Video streaming service Vimeo has deleted over 200 videos from the account of a Canadian conservative internet news service after a homosexual activist and registered sex offender with a habit of threatening pro-life organizations with legal action complained to Vimeo about the content of the films. Last month, RoadKill Radio News interviewed Brian Camenker, president of the pro-traditional-family organization MassResistance.com, about a $1 million lawsuit brought against him by Adam Flanders, a homosexual activist and registered sex offender in the State of Maine. Flanders is pursuing criminal charges against Camenker for posting...

    Violent anti-Trump rhetoric, harassment of White House officials and attacks on the president’s supporters have seemingly become the new norm since Trump took office. In the latest incident on Sunday, Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings joked that it would be a “catastrophe” if anyone saved President Trump from drowning. (RELATED: Dem Rep. Alcee Hastings Jokes About Trump Drowning In The Potomac River) The Daily Caller compiled a list of nearly two-dozen incidents alone since January in which Democratic officials made violent jokes about the president and his supporters, Trump officials were harassed in public and other disturbing incidents that lowered the...

But they aren’t. They are private companies that shouldn’t knowingly spread lies and hate. They took a good first step today removing Infowars. Infowars is just the tip of the iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and Youtube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website.

  • Heng Gets Facebook Blocked (California R candidate)

    Elizabeth Heng nearly beat incumbent Democratic congressman Jim Costa in California’s open primaries in early June. The 53–47 outcome would have made her the darling of the national political media, had she been a Democrat. She will face Costa again in the general election in November. My colleague Alexandra DeSanctis wrote an excellent piece last month profiling the young, smart, 33-year-old Republican contender. So this happened yesterday. Heng’s campaign had tried to place this video as an ad on Facebook. It begins with her family’s roots — amidst the horror of Cambodian genocide. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUJXqJ4f_to And Facebook responded with a...
