You would think out of any site, Pinterest would be the one free of anti-conservative bias. It’s a website for recipes and crafts. With some motivational quotes. Possibly a cute picture of a kitten hanging in there. I was on the site the other day looking for ideas on building an outdoor bar out of pallets. Pinterest is a happy place. Or so you would think. As Project Veritas reminds us, anytime leftists are sitting in front of a computer, things get blocked (see Trump’s Twitter Account Deactivated by Employee on his Last Day of Work. Here’s the Bigger Problem. and Ted Cruz Just Exposed Twitter’s Anti-Conservative Bias with a Single Tweet).
Or in this case, marked as pornography.
- Pinterest blacklisted pro-life group LiveAction.org, classified as “pornography,” cannot link to site
- Leaked “sensitive terms list” includes “bible verses” and “christian easter”
- Ben Shapiro commentary censored in “zero tolerance moment,” slack messages reveal
- Planned Parenthood undercover videos marked as “harmful” conspiracy
- Veritas calls on more Silicon Valley insiders to come forward
Can we just take a moment to revel in Notorious Tumbler Merchant Ben Shapiro getting called a white supremacist? Because as Crowder tells it, that guy is so Jewish he won’t flip a switch during the Sabbath. So to call him king of the Whities seems… dumb.
This is where we are, folks. This is who the left is. Not even Pinterest is safe. And really, all because of one or two employees with an agenda. That’s the insane thing. A company-wide directive would at least make more sense. “We, as a company, don’t want this on our site.” That would make the company a publisher, and in that case they could decide who’s allowed to pin and who isn’t. Fine.
But in a lot of instances, it comes down to a handful of employees steering the whole ship, or so it seems. That’s the real scary part.
