Today’s blacklisted American: Eventbrite routinely blacklists conservative events

Eventbrite: hostile to freedom

They’re coming for you next: Eventbrite, an online “self-service ticketing platform”, has been routinely blacklisting conservative events, often cancelling already existing events or telling customers the event no longer exists, always for vague and often contradictory reasons.

What Eventbrite did to one Matt Walsh event is typical:

In late February, the website removed from its page for a [March 1st] Matt Walsh event on transgenderism sponsored by Young America’s Foundation at Stanford University. Organizers were forced to set up an alternative event page just before Walsh’s appearance. Not only did Eventbrite remove the page, “[h]undreds of registered attendees were surprised to receive emails from the company informing them that their tickets had been canceled,” YAF wrote in a Feb. 27 news release.

Though students at Stanford set fire to promotional flyers put up by YAF prior to the event, the event itself went off without incident.

The article at the first link above lists numerous other times Eventbrite cancelled conservative events without explanation, including several other Walsh university events, a screening of Dinesh D’Souza’s film 2000 Mules that documents fraud and election tampering in the 2020 election, a event in support of the U.S. military, and a Memorial Day event honoring veterans.

All of this blacklisting contradicts Eventbrite’s own mission statement:

Eventbrite is a global self-service ticketing platform for live experiences that allows anyone to create, share, find and attend events that fuel their passions and enrich their lives. From music festivals, marathons, conferences, community rallies, and fundraisers, to gaming competitions and air guitar contests. Our mission is to bring the world together through live experiences. [emphasis mine]

We should add this to that last sentence “…except if you are a conservative or oppose the queer agenda. In that case you should be silenced and a boot smashed into your face.”

A quick scan of the upcoming events in Tucson alone shows that leftist events are welcome, from “‘Come Meet A Black Person’ Anti-Racism Virtual Series” to the “23rd annual Tucson Women’s Day Out Expo” to the “Black Women in Cybersecurity Initiative”.

The last event is especially leftist in its fundamental focus on race, with a stated goal “to promote gender and racial equity in Tech by working to increase the number of Black women in Cybersecurity.” Nothing is wrong with this, except that if a white woman showed up I am sure she would be ushered to the door. This is a segregated event. No whites welcome.

Eventbrite has no problem with such minority-favored segregated events. The only events it insists on banning are those that promote conservative values, the values that founded the United States, ended slavery and racial discrimination, and made Americans the wealthiest and most prosperous humans ever in the history of the human race. These ideas Eventbrite blacklists.

Eventbrite illustrates the difficult situation that exists for freedom-loving Americans. A lawsuit against this ticketing platform would probably fail, thus making it very difficult to counter its anti-conservative bias and blacklisting. Alternative conservative ticketing platforms could be formed, open to all, from the left to the right, but it is likely the left would not use such platforms and our society would continue to break apart into factional bubbles with no cross-communication at all.

Creating alternatives however remains the best option. The competition would force Eventbrite to change, or die. And if it happens quickly enough and with enough vigor, it might actually overwhelm the close-minded totalitarians who are presently taking over American society at all levels.

NOTE: Radio host Robert Pratt, who happens to also be one of my readers, notes in the comments below that he has already found a competitor ticketing platform,, that does not blacklist and is glad to work with Americans.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

  • Robert Pratt is a real business booking site out of the UK that I use for events. So far I’m very pleased. Plus it doesn’t have all the spam you get with these sites like the one in the story. (Posted just in case any of you are needing a site to use to book – I did a considerable amount of research before moving to this site. It is perfect for small business venues, etc. Live support by phone (London, UK hours) is great.)

  • Robert Pratt: I will add a note to the post noting that a good competitor for conservatives already exists.

  • Internet companies are largely filled with young, indoctrinated Leftist. Leftist believe that lying is a legitimate means to obtain their goals. That Eventbrite blacklists conservatives is no surprise even though they don’t present themselves that way.
