Pro-Lifers Hit By Big Tech Clampdown

Pro-Lifers Hit By Big Tech Clampdown

Another day, another example of how liberal Big Tech is literally strangling the entire ‘right’ to death – while ‘our’ President does nothing to enforce the First Amendment! The latest victim of leftist intolerance is pro-life campaigner LifeSiteNews.

A little over one week ago, Apple approved LifeSiteNews’ application to publish news on their Apple News platform.

Today, without warning, Apple News abruptly reversed course, telling LifeSite that they had deleted their channel and all of its contents from their platform.

Apple claimed that LifeSite’s channel “didn’t comply with our Apple News guidelines.” Specifically, they stated that LifeSite’s “[c]hannel content shows intolerance towards a specific group.”

Apple’s e-mail provided no details about which content they deemed offensive, or which “specific group” LifeSite’s content allegedly showed intolerance towards. Our best guess is that the site is politely critical of baby-butchering abortion profiteers – although of course, being very polite and gently people, they never use such blunt descriptions.

Apple News is an app that is available on all Apple devices. It aggregates news content from thousands of publishers. Apple users can “follow” their favorite news sites and receive customised updates.

“We don’t yet know the reason for Apple’s decision to delete our channel,” said LifeSiteNews Editor-in-Chief John-Henry Westen. “However, at a time when there is growing evidence that tech juggernauts are engaging in concerted censorship against even mainstream conservative viewpoints, Apple’s decision – made unilaterally, and without opportunity to appeal – is frightening.”

“It goes without saying that LifeSite would never promote intolerance or hatred against any group,” Westen continued. “However, in our current divisive political climate, even mild expressions of common conservative viewpoints are often written off as de facto hatred and intolerance. We certainly hope that this is not what Apple is doing. However, we urge our readers to contact Apple, and to respectfully demand that they reinstate LifeSite’s channel.”

Such effort is, sadly, wasted. There is only one man in the world with the power to bring the liberal-bigots of Big tech to heel and to break their reign of intolerant censorship before it destroys democracy and freedom completely.

That man, of course, is Donald Trump. He’s the one who needs to be lobbied, begged, cajoled and shamed into taking action to defend not just his own base but the free speech and liberty on which the american Republic is based. Unless he takes action, it’s all over!

Perhaps a group of real, thinking, conservatives could get into one of Mr Trump’s big campaign rallies and introduce the crowd to a new, free speech chant. If it catches on, and is shown on Fox News, then every other rally would do the same.

True, in the end, he neither locked her up nor built that wall, but if he heard thousands of his most ardent supporters chanting something like “Free speech online – First Amendment rights are mine!”, he might spot the opportunity to take his place in the History books as the President who forced Big Tech to honour the American Constitution!
