Something there is that doesn’t love the New York Post, and that something is Big Tech. When the paper exposed potential wrongdoings by Hunter Biden that may have influenced the outcome of the election, Big Tech suppressed the story.

And now they are at it again. This time they are censoring a Post story detailing the purchase of several million-dollar properties by Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors.

On Apr. 10, the paper reported that Cullors had gone on a “real estate buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records”:

Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.

Some fellow activists were taken aback by the real estate revelations.

Among those was Hawk Newsome, who heads up the greater New York chapter of Black Lives Matter Greater, who called for “an independent investigation” to find out how the global network spends its money.

“If you go around calling yourself a socialist,” Newsome is quoted as having said, “you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes. It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.”

True believers may be crestfallen all over again by the dropping of another bombshell, this time by the Washington Examiner, to the effect that Sir Maejor [sic] Page, a BLM activist, was arrested by the FBI for having allegedly spent over $200,000 in donations on tailored suits, a home in Ohio, and guns. He now faces federal charges of wire fraud and money laundering.

So far Big Tech is overlooking the Page story, which is comparatively small potatoes. But, as The Epoch Times notes, Facebook and Instagram are preventing users from sharing” the link to the Post’s article on Cullors’ multi-million-dollar property portfolio directly on their timeline or through the Messenger app”:

When a user attempts to share the link, they are blocked from doing so and the following message is displayed: “Your post couldn’t be shared, because this link goes against our Community Standards. If you think this doesn’t go against our Community Standards let us know.”

Also be sure to let the platform know that you have read the First Amendment to the Constitution and that they are suppressing two of the freedoms enumerated in it.
