‘If Louis Farrakhan doesn’t constitute as hate speech, what does?’: Glenn Beck on social media bias

By now, you’ve probably heard all about Sarah Jeong, the New York Times’ newest editorial board member who posted dozens of hate-laden rants against white people on social media. Interestingly, Jeong’s Twitter account was never flagged for using hate speech.

But when Candace Owens — a black supporter of President Donald Trump and communications director for Turning Point USA — posted the very same same tweets, but replaced Jeong’s use of “white” with either “black” or “Jewish,” Twitter immediately blocked her account for “inciting hate.”

Then there’s Alex Jones, who was banned from nearly all social media platforms, including Apple, YouTube, and Facebook, for his reported use of hate speech.

Meanwhile, YouTube and Facebook maintain pages for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and all his hate-filled anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

“If Louis Farrakhan doesn’t constitute as hate speech, what does?” Glenn Beck asked of the obvious inconsistency.

“Silicon Valley is now jumping on the activist bandwagon,” Glenn said. “People will make the argument that this isn’t a First Amendment issue, after all these platforms are owned by private companies. I do NOT want them made into utilities. They can do whatever the heck they want, but when it comes to restricting free speech, I see no difference whether it’s coming from the government or from a juggernaut media platform.

“Silicon Valley is doing the same thing to Alex Jones that the government and mainstream media have done to the middle of this country for years. In trying to punish him, they are actually, effectively proving him right.”
