Spotify Bans Song With Opening Lyrics “They Might Ban Me for the Song”

“If you rap about traditional values and expose truths they will BAN YOU!”

Spotify has banned a song called Safe Space that literally opens with the line “they might ban me for this song,” because it contains lyrics critical of the LGBT movement and BLM.

Yes, really.

A track called Safe Space by conservative rappers Bryson Gray and Patriot J was blacklisted by the streaming giant, which initially denied that it had censored the song.

Gray’s album Bold as a Lion: Season One is still available on the platform, but the Safe Space song is grayed out and unplayable.

“Their previous viral hits include songs supporting former President Trump, the popular movement around him, gun rights, as well as diss tracks targeting liberal media figures like CNN’s Don Lemon, but also the very subject of censorship, such as Patriot J’s “Thought Criminal,” writes Didi Rankovic.

“Their collaboration that Spotify apparently considered too controversial to let its subscribers decide whether or not to listen to touched on pretty much every topic that “triggers” the left-leaning social and other media: transgenderism, issues that would be qualified as so-called “fatphobia,” the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election, and support for the BLM movement.”

Patriot J responded by pointing out that other black rappers can glorify death, crime and all kinds of immoral and disgusting lifestyles, “but if you mess around and rap about traditional values and expose truths they will BAN YOU!”

“Remember y’all, you can rap about anything you want except going against the LGBT. You can rap about your vagina to children all day, you can rap about popping pills, you can rap about doing crime… but not the forbidden topic,” tweeted Bryson Gray.

As we highlighted back in March, Spotify announced that it would begin censoring songs that contain “misinformation,” a totally arbitrary approach which is completely open to abuse by the company’s notoriously woke employees.

Music icon Ian Brown revealed that Spotify had deleted his anti-lockdown song Little Seed Big Tree, while it was also reported that Spotify employees threatened a mutiny if the company didn’t blacklist episodes of the Joe Rogan podcast.

This once again underscores how Big Tech is mimicking how state censors implemented the system of socialist realism in the former Soviet Union to ensure that art or music which expressed dissident thought was blacklisted.

In order to entrench loyalty to the Communist Party and advance a utopian image of Soviet society, “The purpose of socialist realism was to limit popular culture to a specific, highly regulated faction of emotional expression that promoted Soviet ideals.”

The tyranny of censorship that was once implemented by totalitarian governments is now enforced by multi-billion dollar corporations.

And the regressive left loves it.

New York Times Worries That Big Tech Won’t Censor Hard Enough During Midterm Elections

Complains about success of ‘2000 Mules’.

Published

The New York Times has published an article expressing its concerns that Big Tech platforms like Facebook and Twitter aren’t doing enough to censor “misinformation” in the run-up to the midterm elections.

The article complains that Meta (Facebook) has slashed its ‘election misinformation’ team from 300 people during 2020 to just 60 people and that Mark Zuckerberg no longer meets with the team directly.

Civil rights groups are also apparently upset that Zuckerberg is less interested in communicating with them about efforts to stop ‘election misinformation’.

According to the piece, Twitter is also likely to be less censorious towards election information due to the likelihood that it is about to be purchased by Elon Musk.

“I’m concerned,” President of the NAACP Derrick Johnson told the newspaper. “It appears to be out of sight, out of mind.”

Noting that there are numerous political candidates running for office in 2022 who agree with Donald Trump that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, the Times laments that Meta’s reduction in censorship “could have far-reaching consequences as faith in the U.S. electoral system reaches a brittle point.”

The article also whines about the viral success of Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary ‘2000 Mules’, which received over a million views on alternative video hosting platform Rumble and also received 430,000 “interactions” on Facebook, proof according to the newspaper that election misinformation is “rampant” online.

Representatives from both Facebook and Twitter responded by assuring the Times that they are still keenly focused on censoring election “misinformation.”

“Before the 2020 US presidential election, Big Tech platforms deployed unprecedented levels of censorship by censoring then-President Donald Trump numerous times, banning popular pro-Trump groups, and more,” writes Reclaim the Net.

“Post-election, this mass censorship continued with President Trump being permanently banned by all the major tech platforms, discussions of “widespread fraud or errors” changing the 2020 US presidential election outcome being banned, free speech platform Parler (which many users had flocked to in an attempt to escape Big Tech’s censorship) being deplatformed by the tech giants, and more.”

“The mainstream media and Big Tech used the vague, subjective term “election misinformation” to justify this silencing of a sitting US President and the mass censorship of election-related speech.

The legacy media is once again likely to weaponize hyper-partisan ‘fact checkers’ to ensure that information which isn’t completely censored is at least shadow banned and relegated by algorithms so fewer Americans will see it.

“I Don’t Believe in Censoring Art”: Paramount CEO Rejects Trigger Warnings

“You don’t have to watch anything you don’t want to.”

Published

Paramount CEO Bob Bakish has refused to add trigger warnings to the company’s historical content, asserting, “I don’t believe in censoring art.”

Bakish says the back catalogue for the film studio’s new subscription streaming service Paramount+ will not be censored to please modern politically correct sensibilities.

“By definition, you have some things that were made in a different time and reflect different sensibilities,” Bakish said.

“I don’t believe in censoring art that was made historically, that’s probably a mistake. It’s all on-demand – you don’t have to watch anything you don’t want to.”

As we have previously highlighted, other streaming platforms and broadcasters have censored or outright deleted old shows and movies for containing so-called ‘offensive’ content.

Earlier this year, UK streaming platform ITV Player censored a “homophobic” line from the 2002 Spiderman movie when Spiderman says to Bonesaw, “That’s a cute outfit. Did your husband give it to you?”

During the height of the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots, UK broadcaster Sky also tagged numerous movies, some little over a decade old, with a message warning viewers that they might be offensive.

“This film has outdated attitudes, language and cultural depictions which may cause offence today,” stated the trigger warning.

During the same year, PBS removed Gone With the Wind from its platform, in the process erasing the first black female actress to win an Oscar, while the BBC also announced it was removing Little Britain from its schedule despite the fact that the TV comedy series satirizes every demographic, often highlighting small minded attitudes of bigots.

Last year, NBC also announced that it was scanning 17,000 hours of past WWE content to weed out “racist” material in order to avoid it appearing on the network’s new Peacock streaming device.

Iconic historical books are also being re-written to reflect ‘modern attitudes’, including George Orwell’s 1984.

Spotify Censors Rapper For Criticizing Pride Month

“You can rap about killing people all day and be fine though.”

Published

Spotify has censored a song by rapper Bryson Gray in which he criticizes gay pride month, with song having been ‘greyed out’ by the streaming giant and made unavailable for download.

The pro-Trump rapper released the song ‘Pride Month’ on June 1st to coincide with the start of the annual period that recognizes the LGBT movement.

“In the song, Gray criticises the LGBT community from a Christian perspective, rapping about transgender activists pushing children onto puberty blockers at twelve years old, the promotion of LGBT motifs by media such as Netflix, and other topics,” writes Jack Hadfield.

The lyrics to the song reference bible verses about homosexuality.

Real Christ Gang
I don’t recognize no pride month
Revelation twenty one eight, you thought He lied huh?
What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah?
They all fried huh?
Y’all keep disrespecting Yah like He won’t slide huh?
I’m just tryna make it in them Heaven gates
Repent and turn from sin or be reprobate
Pride a deadly sin but y’all celebrate
If you don’t become new then only Hell awaits

After being on the platform for 2 weeks, Gray revealed that Spotify had censored the song by removing it completely from his artist page.

“I am the ONLY music artist that this happens to without any resolution,” complained Gray.

The rapper noted how his song had been censored for ‘homophobia’ and yet tracks released by best selling artists like Eminem DMX, and Kendrick Lamar which contain brazen homophobic slurs remained untouched.

“Eminem made a song called ‘Fall,’ which was on his Kamikaze album a few years ago, and in the song he calls Tyler the Creator the word that gay people hate, the f-word… It’s right here, free to listen to. How about the other songs where Eminem said the same exact word? Like, the ‘Marshall Mathers’ song, or how about his song, ‘Rap God,’ where he literally says he will break a table over the head of the f-word that you can’t say. Nope, you can listen to that song too! And I didn’t even say that word,” said Gray.

Gray also noted how other rappers are allowed to spew all kinds of violent rhetoric, but as soon as someone starts quoting the bible, it’s curtains.

“A lot of these artists cry about censorship but never actually experience censorship,” Gray tweeted. “You want to truly experience it? Start making biblical music. You can rap about killing people all day and be fine though.”

Last year, the streaming platform banned a song called Safe Space that literally opens with the line “they might ban me for this song,” because it contained lyrics critical of the LGBT movement and BLM.

Spotify also previously censored a song by indie music legend Ian Brown for lyrics containing “misinformation”. The lyrics referred to COVID lockdowns and the new world order.
