Big tech is at it again as they crack down on any voice that disagrees with the left. An entire episode of ‘The Candace Owens Show’ on PragerU has now been deleted after it was on the site for 16 months. In the episode, Michael and Candace talk about men and women and how being a transgender doesn’t change your biological sex. This would seem like basic knowledge because science would agree that you can’t just change your sex whenever you want to. Unfortunately this is now considered hate speech.
Candace Owens has been a victim of censorship so this comes as no surprise to anyone. She has often been a dissenting voice from the media narrative and has gained popularity among the Trump base. Censoring her show is only going to increase that popularity if history tells us anything. Candace is likely thanking YouTube for the increase in engagement she is going to get from this.
YouTube and big tech overall believe that they are the people who get to decide what hate speech is and is not. This is the whole problem with the idea of ending hate speech, the worst people on earth will be the ones who get to decide what is and isn’t okay. Often times in our world the truth is what hurts the most to hear, is that now considered hate speech? It is time that there are no more protections for big tech, they have become way too large for them to be able to censor speech.
If we as American’s don’t start electing people in our local races that will hold big tech accountable, you can expect absolutely nothing to change. The censorship of conservatives will continue to get worse as the years go by. More and more people on the left are warming up to the idea of re-educating Trump supporters to think like they do. Don’t allow the threats to shut you down, you still have the 1st amendment and nobody can stop hard working Americans from speaking their mind. It just might be a little bit harder to get the message out if you are on the right.
