Today, raging racist Steven Crowder pretended to be George Floyd as he was murdered.

This is being monetized by @youtube via advertisers.

Advertisers should walk out on @SusanWojcicki’s platform en masse if Crowder is not banned for this. This is not a safe platform for them.
Like Alex Jones, @YouTube built this person’s career by giving him reach far beyond what he’d ever get without them and handed him millions in ad dollars for the privilege.

@TeamYouTube continues to make the world a worse place by giving amplification to the very worst humans.
Advertisers who posted and tweeted in support of racial justice last summer should, if they really meant it, walk out of @YouTube until they do something about this and the rampant racism that is amplified and rewarded on this platform.
Don’t forget, Crowder has already been suspended THREE times and demonitized once.

@YouTube is under no obligation to keep this person on their platform, as they are not a public square.

They keep him because he’s good for their bottom line.

Tucker Carlson is a white supremacist.
Each week, distributors like @ATT @Xfinity @GetSpectrum @YouTubeTV @verizonfios @DIRECTV and @dish amplify their ideas from this white supremacist to millions.
Everyday, companies like @KraftHeinzCo @progressive @CharlesSchwab @pfizer @ProcterGamble @amazon @Allstate & @Verizon send millions in advertising dollars to the network that broadcasts this white supremacist.

A few things on this:

1) Corporations are not “woke”. They know where the money is. They have looked at the market and realized that supporting the curtailing of voting rights is not good for business. Or at least not as good for business and coming out against it.
2) Corporations are trying to appeal to more people than less. The idea of subtraction isn’t what they’re interested in. They’re against the curtailing of voting rights because people will be subtracted, not added. That doesn’t meet their mission.
3) The game was given away when it was made illegal to bring people food or water while waiting in line to vote. The Georgia legislature could have given these companies more than ample coverage to deny what this clearly is without it. This was an unbelievable own goal.

How do Georgia corporations justify their silence here when they spent all summer posting that Black Lives Matter?
Last summer, @CocaCola created an entire program for “greater racial equity in our communities”.

Silence today on keeping Black people from voting.…
.@HomeDepot, another Georgia company, gave $1 million to “promote actionable change” in racial equality.

Today? No statement on restrictive voting for Black communities.…

SEAN DAVIS: Big tech is destroying free speech!

ALSO SEAN DAVIS: If you retweeted “Mommy Milky”, I’m going to sue you ass into the ground!
None of these chuckleheads ever understand 1A, but talk about it nearly all of the time.
By the way, we’re just following what’s happening via everyone else’s tweets because we’ve been blocked for three years because, you know, champion of free speech.

For the last 3 years, we have, along with others like @mmfa @juddlegum and @DesignationSix, asked advertisers if they support Carlson's rhetoric about Immigrants, the Black community and Women. There are zero left.

They are sticking with Fox, though. There's still more to do.👇
Fox is equally complicit in allowing this to happen. This week alone, he has used his platform to denigrate Women in the armed forces and pointed his sizable audience at a female reporter who was already being harassed.

How does any company justify doing business with Fox?
Right now, businesses that have stood for racial justice and against gender bias like @ProcterGamble @gm and @GSKUS all continue to send advertising dollars to Fox, which has done nothing but denigrate those ideas.

We hope these businesses reconsider their support immediately.
