Big Tech is known for suppressing and censoring stories that put Democrats in a bad light. We’ve seen it happen to The New York Post over Hunter Biden’s laptop story and now it’s happening to a story about the Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors and her real estate binge, including a $1.4 million dollar property in Topanga Canyon, a predominantly white area. Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram quickly started locking people out of their accounts for violating their terms to post “private information” and not allowing the New York Post’s link to the story to be shared. Here we go again.
The story shares that Khan-Cullors has spent nearly $3.2 million on luxury homes over the last few years, as well as looking at purchasing a residence in the Bahamas at a lavish resort. Apartments and townhouses in the resort run from $5 million to $20 million. The story came shortly after the Black Lives Matter global network announced they’d raised $90 million in 2020.
When users tried plugging in the story’s link to share, they noticed that the post somehow goes to saying it could not be shared and that the link goes “against our community standards.” Newsweek reporters even tested the URL and reached out to Big Tech to ask about the problem.
A Facebook spokesperson shared that the content was removed “for violating our privacy and personal information policy,” which includes financial and residential information. But social media users found that other stories covering the story were able to be shared, but the NY Post original story could not be. Some users reported difficulty sharing the Daily Mail article.
Even Black journalists Jason Whitlock and Curtis Scoon were locked out of their Twitter accounts for sharing the basic reports of Khan-Cullors’ home purchases. The stories never included street addresses or anything that qualified as “private” and most of the information was transaction reports posted on an all-exclusive home blog.
Whitlock had tweeted and brought up the fact that Khan-Cullors new property in Topanga Canyon is in an exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood where the vast majority of residents are White. The area has a Black population of 1.4%. His tweet was removed on Friday morning for ‘violating rules’ on the platform.
“Do you even comprehend my take? She had a lot of options on where to live. She chose one of the whitest places in California. She’ll have her pick of white cops and white people to complain about. That’s a choice, bro,” Whitlock wrote, including a link to the article.
Big Tech goes against any story that paints BLM as a false organization using the deaths of black men and women for their own political and financial gain. Even some of the victim’s families have asked BLM to stop using their dead relative’s name to profit, including Breonna Taylor’s mother who called BLM Louisville a “fraud.” She also called out Rep. Attica Scott “another fraud” for trying to gain political points and pass a bill banning all no-knock warrants under Breonna’s name.
Michael Brown Sr., the father of Mike Brown, also demanded money from the organization to help rebuild their community. BLM-led riots destroyed millions of dollars of property and small businesses nationwide last year. “Where is all that money going? How could you leave the families who are helping the community without any funding?” He asked.
It seems like more Marxist leaders are getting caught acting like capitalists by the day. Selling social justice is a radical left move and the only justification for blocking and censoring a story about it is to protect it. If anyone knows how to protect the radical left, it’s Big Tech. As long as they can hide behind immunity lawsuits every time they attack the First Amendment.
