Popular Christian News Outlet Is Latest victim Of Big Tech Censorship Rampage
LifeSite, a Christian pro-life news outlet which specialises in informed criticism of ‘gender’ activism and the militant homosexual lobby, was blacklisted by its web host and given just 12 hours to find another host the website, or risk being offline.
“LifeSite just received an email at 8:30 p.m. EST from our web-hosting company alerting us that they will be taking our website down within 12 hours, if not sooner,” LifeSite revealed in a statement, Saturday. “We received absolutely no forewarning whatsoever about this decision.”
“Our web developer is scrambling right now to set up a possibly-needed temporary solution to keep the website live. However, we’re going to have to go through the ordeal and expense of moving server companies,” the news outlet continued. “We also intend to fight these attacks, which will carry significant legal costs.”

LifeSite was not the only website blacklisted by its web host this week as liberal Big Tech’s anti-free speech purge rolls on. Free speech social network Gab lost its web host Joyent late on Saturday and being given until just Monday morning to migrate to another host.
On Saturday, Gab warned that the blacklisting could leave the social network offline for weeks, and as of writing, Gab is currently offline.
“As we transition to a new hosting provider Gab will be inaccessible for a period of time. We are working around the clock to get Gab.com back online,” declared the social network in a statement. “Thank you and remember to speak freely.”
What is especially worrying is that this new and expanded wave of censorship is taking place several months after President Trump promised action to stop the liberal-left war on conservatives and on the First Amendment. Yet absolutely nothing has been done.
The Republicans have allowed the entire Mid-Terms campaign to be held during a period of relentless interference by liberal Big Tech in the political process. Censorship through shadow banning and denial of services has silenced organised conservative voices and grass-roots patriots alike. The situation is now critical….
