Writer, comedian and CRTV host Gavin McInnes has become the latest casualty of social media censoring. McInnes and his right-wing activist group, Proud Boys, were banned from Twitter ahead of Sunday's "Unite the Right 2" rally in Washington, D.C., for violating the company's policy "prohibiting violent extremist groups."
McInnes joined Glenn Beck on Monday's episode of the “Glenn Beck Radio Show” to discuss the evident double standards when it comes to banning conservatives on social media.
"I was banned ... and I was told it was for condoning violence. I put out a video of my last 20 tweets, there's no violence in there. In fact, the only thing that's political, really, is me disavowing Unite the Right, saying I don't want anything to do with that."
"I think what's really going on here is Proud Boys have been successful in protecting speakers from Antifa, and we actually enjoy it, God forbid. And that's been seen as condoning violence," he added
"The left thinks free speech is a pleasant conference on who was better: The Rolling Stones or The Beatles. You don't need to fight for that; you need to fight for uncomfortable speech," McInnes continued, "and if you have faith in humanity and faith in human beings and think we're all inherently good deep down, then you want the truth out. Sunlight is the best disinfectant, let's discuss it. But the left doesn't want that because they're socialists; they want to control the narrative and they want to control people."
