Slack banned Libs of TikTok and refuses to give us a reason
On Friday, Libs of TikTok received an email from Slack, the messaging platform we use for our journalism and business, notifying us that we had been terminated from their service. Slack claimed Libs of TikTok’s termination was for “violations of the Acceptable Use Policy.”
Libs of TikTok is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
After seeing Seth Dillon’s tweet about the termination, Salesforce, who owns Slack, said they were “looking into” our termination. However, Salesforce quickly deleted their response.
Slack has refused to give Libs of TikTok an answer as to how we violated their Acceptable Use Policy. They claim that “If a violation of the policy is deliberate, repeated or presents a credible risk of harm to other users, our customers, the Services or any third parties, we may suspend or terminate your access.” If we had to guess the policy violation, it would be the one everybody tries getting us with: “activity that incites or encourages violence or hatred against individuals or groups.”
I believe the truth of our termination will come to light, just like it did with Twitter. Twitter suspended Libs of TikTok over and over again for “violating” their “hateful conduct policy” despite there never actually being any violations. It took months for the truth to finally come out after Elon Musk released the Twitter files, showing Twitter’s deliberate targeting of Libs of TikTok. Now, those who unjustly censored me and countless others are being forced to testify in front of Congress. The same will ring true for Slack and Salesforce, should they continue down the path of corporate wokiesm and senseless censorship.
Libs of TikTok simply reposts publicly available content, and our investigative journalism is duly covered under the First Amendment. Libs of TikTok is doing the work that journalists stopped doing a long time ago: exposing the truth, especially that which contradicts the mainstream narrative.
Over the last year, Libs of TikTok has focused on protecting the innocence of children by bringing to light the disturbing content and individuals that our children are being deliberately exposed to. We’ve used Slack to coordinate stories exposing hospitals performing gender-affirming surgeries on children, a superintendent who had sexual fantasies about minors, a preschool teacher creating OnlyFans content at school, a teacher giving students an assignment on masturbation, and countless drag events for children as young as 6 years old. Is protecting children a violation of Slack’s policies?
Despite breaking stories to expose those who are a danger to or actively harming children, I can guarantee you Slack has not suspended or terminated a single one of the people or organizations we have reported on. Slack does not actually care about “activity that incites or encourages violence or hatred against individuals or groups,” or Libs of TikTok would still be allowed to operate as our primary goal is to expose those who encourage harm to children.
It’s for this very reason I decided to use my platform to give parents an avenue to broach conversations about grooming with their children with my first children’s book, No More Secrets. As a result of announcing my book I received death threats. The response from the Left speaks volumes about their motivations.
No matter how many platforms they ban or suspend Libs of TikTok from, I will continue to shed light on darkness and hold a mirror to the Left.
Children should know that secrets are dangerous
A few years ago, when I created Libs of TikTok, it was an opportunity to expose the increasing pandemic of the attack on our children’s innocence. After noticing the videos I was finding were getting more frequent and also more aggressive, I decided it was time to do more than expose this darkness. It was time parents had a tool to help protect their children from predators, so I wrote a children’s book designed to do just that.
It’s called No More Secrets: The Candy Cavern. My book is a colorful, modern-day take on the classic, Little Red Riding Hood. It is a fun, beautifully illustrated and age-appropriate story about a sheep named Rose who starts second grade with a new teacher, Mr. Wooly. He suspiciously convinces his students to eat candy and treats everyday at school while telling them to keep it a secret from their parents. Mr. Wooly uses phrases like, “don’t worry about what your parents said,” “you can trust me,” and “my class is a safe space.” These are the very phrases that predators in authority positions use on children. Without a strong foundation of trust in her family, Rose may not have felt that twinge of uncertainty alarming her that something was off.
My hope is this book can help create that foundation of trust in your family and families across the country. That’s why I chose to partner with BRAVE Books whose mission is to help parents instill a love of truth and strong morality in their children so that they can withstand harmful progressive influences like the ones I expose on Libs of TikTok. As children surpass their toddler years, they begin launching into various social situations in which they no longer have their parents present. Whether it’s at school, sports practice, or a friend’s house, children reach the age where they must make decisions and discern on their own. That is why parents must instill strong morals and values in their children before they get launched into the real world.
My book teaches children to always trust their parents as the authority even when other adults try to tell them otherwise. Every parent should have this conversation with their children and this book will help families do that. I’m not stopping at every home, though. This book should be in every home and school across the country. After revealing my identity on national television, I’m ready to mobilize and work to put the big, bad wolves on the run!
