Andy Ngo, the reporter who gained notoriety after his on-the-ground coverage of Antifa, was banned from the audio sharing site Soundcloud.

Ngo’s podcast, which ended over a year ago, was removed from the platform and Ngo has been offered no recourse for restoring his account.

From The Daily Wire: 

“@SoundCloud has permanently banned me & my podcast @YouShouldNgo. In an email, it says I violated its community guidelines without naming the alleged offending content,” Ngo tweeted Monday. He pointed out that guests on his podcast have included popular figures such as podcaster Dave Rubin, The Spectator associate editor Douglas Murray, and psychologist Jordan Peterson.

“Big Tech is not nonpartisan nor neutral. Being permanently suspended from @SoundCloud without knowing why or even having an opportunity to appeal is how it is now,” Ngo added.

SoundCloud’s Trust & Safety Team emailed Ngo notifying him that his podcast had been booted from its platform for violating SoundCloud’s terms of use. The platform did not cite a specific violation, though its terms of service bans content that is “abusive, libelous, defamatory, pornographic or obscene, that promotes or incites violence, terrorism, illegal acts, or hatred on the grounds of race, ethnicity, cultural identity, religious belief, disability, gender, identity or sexual orientation, or is otherwise objectionable in SoundCloud’s reasonable discretion.”

Another platform has struck down a conservative-leaning individual with little to no reason stated as to why. If there was a reason for a just ban of Ngo surly this would have been stated, his content did not appear to violate any of the rules the site has and this is what leads people to belive his banning is just another act of political censorship.
