The Big Tech assault on free speech and common sense continues unabated as workplace communication app Slack permanently suspended the popular Libs of TikTok Twitter account.
The reason provided was due to purported violations of the app’s Acceptable Use Policy. Slack is currently utilized by 43% of Fortune 500 companies for internal communications, so the ban has an impact.

Slack did not provide a specific example of the so-called violation.
It is not, however, on the same level as being de-platformed by Twitter again would be. That was a common occurrence before the social media giant was purchased by billionaire Elon Musk, who has since restored freedom of speech to the company.
But why did Slack see the need to permanently suspend Libs of TikTok? After all, the platform almost exclusively tweets videos that feature people speaking in their own words.
Apparently that is enough. Former real estate agent Chaya Raichik, who owns the site, withstands a firestorm of hate from the left simply for putting their true beliefs spoken in their own words out there for everyone to see.
Her exposure of Boston Children’s Hospital’s performance of “gender-affirming” surgeries, including hysterectomies, caused considerable controversy when the hospital allegedly received threats over its “care.”
Of course, threats to a hospital are unacceptable, but all Libs of TikTok did was take their own words and publish them. Those words, from the hospital’s own website, are telling.
It proclaimed “The Center for Gender Surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital offers gender affirmation surgery services to eligible adolescents and young adults who are ready to take this step in their journey.
It further boasted that it is the “first center of its kind in the U.S. in a major pediatric hospital setting.”
Because of this, the hospital received negative attention, and blame for that fell on Libs of TikTok. As RedState noted, the Washington Post accused Raichik of a “false claim” that the hospital performed such procedures.
However, using someone’s exact words hardly qualifies as “claiming” they said what they in fact did say.
Raichik did not take Slack’s rejection without a fight. She posted that the app “is angry that a person is working to protect childhood innocence by educating people about mutilation surgeries…and inappropriate adult entertainment being presented to kids.”
