Apple CEO To Ban 'Sinful' Conservative Speech. Leaves 'F*** White People' and 'Suck My D*** H**' on iTunes

Share

Apple CEO Tim Cook defended censorship by claiming it would be a “sin” not to remove content on Apple’s platform, but Apple allows songs like “F*** White People” to stay on iTunes.

Speaking at Anti-Defamation League’s “Never is Now Summit” on Monday, Cook made a bizarre attack on free speech.

“We only have one message for those who seek to push hate, division, and violence,” Cook said. “You have no place on our platform. You have no home here.”

Of course, content that allegedly pushes “division” only applies to conservative content. Cook would be hard-pressed to remove far-left content because conservatives are the ones pushing “division” in the eyes of the left.

In reality, without “division,” the left would simply dominate everyone without opposition, which is clearly big tech’s goal.

If Apple was serious about broadly censoring “hate, division, and violence” without an ideological motive, they wouldn’t allow songs like “F*** White People” and “Suck My D*** H**” to stay on iTunes.

Apple’s platform also has countless mainstream rap songs threatening violence against President Donald Trump.

Later in his speech, Cook was a little more transparent about his agenda.

Do you think other tech companies will also target conservatives?

“And as we showed this year, we won’t give a platform to violent conspiracy theorists on the App Store. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do,” Cook said.

Cook must be referring to Apple’s ban against controversial radio show host Alex Jones.

However, Cook is completely permissive of far-left conspiracy theorists. Nobody will get banned from iTunes for peddling their crazed “Russian collusion” conspiracy theory.

It seems the term “conspiracy theorist” can be conveniently applied to anybody who makes a speculative argument that Apple disagrees with.

“I believe the most sacred thing that each of us is given is our judgement. Our morality. Our own innate desire to separate right from wrong,” Cook said. “Choosing to set that responsibility aside at a moment of trial is a sin.”

If Cook actually valued “judgement,” he would let Apple users judge content for themselves. Content shouldn’t be censored because Cook and other executives at Apple find it to be “wrong.”

It’s not a “sin” to believe people should be free to have opinions you disagree with.
