Censorship enthusiasts in California’s Silicon Valley have led the charge of leftists looking to silence political opinions they don’t like over the last few years.
Their world was rocked by Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter.
But now this company in Gavin Newsom’s back yard may become leftist’s new favorite.
The Twitter account Libs of TikTok, run by a woman named Chaya Raichik, has exploded in popularity.
Libs of TikTok went from a fledgling account to 1.9 million followers in only a couple of years.
Holding up a mirror to blue state madness
Raichik built the account by simply posting videos of deranged leftists spouting their beliefs in their own words.
The account holds a mirror up to the Left, which is a highly effective strategy of combating the Left.
When people see the Left’s ideas in their own words, they recoil in horror.
That’s why the default attack against Libs of TikTok is to censor her.
And business messaging program Slack just booted Raichik off the platform for no reason whatsoever.
Slack wrote to her without warning, “We are writing to let you know that we have suspended your workspace, lott-chat.slack.com, for violations of our Acceptable Use Policy…As highlighted in Slack’s Acceptable Use Policy, Slack may exercise its right to suspend or terminate your access.”
Slack did not specify why her account was banned, which is standard operating procedure from leftist companies.
Slack added, “We have refunded the most recent monthly charge of $75 to your credit card…You can expect to see a refund on our card in 5-7 business days. We can provide you with a copy of the data stored in your Slack instance using an electronic file transfer service on request.”
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon, who has supported Raichik with her Libs of TikTok account, intervened on her behalf and reached out to Slack.
Dillon tweeted, “@SlackHQ has permanently suspended @libsoftiktok. If your business is defending kids, Slack doesn’t want your money.”
Libs of TikTok has posted many videos of teachers disclosing how they secretly talk to their students about sexuality and transgender issues.
Again, these people are offering up this information on public social media sites.
Raichik’s advocacy against radical transgenderism has made her a target of the Left.
Raichik responded, “@SlackHQ is angry that an account is working to protect childhood innocence by educating people about mutilation surgeries, porn in schools, and inappropriate adult entertainment being presented to kids.”
Dillon got a brief reply from Slack that suggested the company was looking into the matter, but the customer service tweet was later deleted.
This is why conservatives need to create platforms to safeguard against “woke” capitalism emanating from blue states.
