Journalist Andy Ngo: blacklisted and banned by Soundcloud
Persecution is now cool! Journalist Andy Ngo has been blackballed again, this time by the podcast and music website SoundCloud.
[Ngo’s] podcast, ‘Things You Should Ngo’ was banned “on grounds of being dedicated to violating” Soundcloud’s rules. Unsurprisingly, as Ngo’s publication The Post Millennial reports, there’s a problem with the explanation.
Of course, Ngo’s podcast did none of those things. His podcast simply interviewed politicians and public figures, a perfectly legitimate thing for a reporter to do in a free society. That such reporting according to SoundCloud must now be censored because some of those interviewed expressed conservative values just shows us the close-minded and oppressive attitude of that company’s management.
I say “again” in the headline because this censorship by SoundCloud follows a long string of blackballing of Ngo by many different outlets and totalitarian organizations.
For example, I have previously featured some of these efforts, including the death threats and actual physical attacks against him that sent him to the emergency room and forced him to flee Portland temporarily for his safety.
And of course Twitter has banned him for a time for stating demonstrable facts that those on the left don’t like, a tactic routinely done at Twitter.
What none of these fascist brown-shirts ever document or show is a case where Ngo reported something that wasn’t true. And they haven’t because his reporting of Antifa in Portland and elsewhere has been flawlessly correct. He does what a good reporter is supposed to do, report what he sees, without spin. That some don’t like it only adds weight to the truth of his reporting: They, Antifa and BLM, are doing things they know are morally wrong, and don’t want it exposed in its true light, only veiled behind the propaganda they can put out and gets spewed back to the public by the bankrupt and leftist mainstream news sources like CBS, NBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, etc.
Right now, this action by SoundCloud only serves to give more business to any competitors. Expect those competitors’ market share to grow and SoundCloud’s to shrink.
Expect also that eventually the fascists from the left who control these oppressive outlets are going to become more aggressive. Soon they will move to get their ally, the government, to either outlaw their competition, or to force that competition to be as intolerant as they are. We are only a hairs-breath away from such oppression.
