The Latest Casualty in the Culture Wars

Is Free Speech a thing of the past?

If you were to google Owen Benjamin a few months ago, you most likely would have been sent over to YouTube to watch some of his Comedy Central specials that have views in the hundreds of thousands. In the past few months, however, the comedian and virtuosic pianist had been focusing on building an online presence.
He started a YouTube channel called, “Feed The Bear” (a reference to himself as he is six feet tall and seven inches, also possibly because he works as an arborist with his brother in Saranac Lake, New York when he isn’t on the road doing comedy).
His channel was a daily live-stream of him sitting at his piano simultaneously playing Bach, Mozart, and all the other greatest composers of all time while talking to fans through Super Chat and receiving donations. He would often take breaks to play songs upon request, answer questions from fans, tell funny stories, and also discuss the political state of the culture war currently taking place in America.
He can’t even read sheet music, but the man can play Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” note for note, even the seemingly impossible 3rd movement. Needless to say, the man’s got skills. He plays everything from memory.
But it’s when he took to Twitter that the trouble started and the Social Jihadist Wussies took notice of him. What first put him on their radar was a tweet featuring all the late night television hosts (Kimmel, Fallon, James Corden, Colbert, Bill Maher, Larry Wilmore, Trevor Noah, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, etc.).
He had the gall to point out that every single one of these “comedians” all supported the same political candidate, and have all the exact same positions on every political issue. The tweet was so incisive and undeniably true that there was just no way the Left couldn’t acknowledge the echo chamber they had slowly constructed in the late night talk show sphere.
However, that was just the beginning.
More and more Mr. Benjamin took to Twitter to scorch the left and also to promulgate his libertarian values and opinions, one of which was that three year old children could not be trans, something seemingly innocuous to anyone with a shred of common sense. He was immediately flagged for hate speech, and was pilloried nonstop as a transphobe despite the fact that his piano teacher his whole life was a transsexual.
This tweet caused him to lose his manager, caused many venues to cancel shows that he had booked with them, and now made him (in the eyes of the far left) fair game for abuse and harassment, and censorship.
He received a strike on his YouTube channel, and YouTube banned him from Live Streaming, but he was still able to upload videos. This was an obvious shot at the way he was making extra money through his daily streams. He also received a ban from Twitter after mocking Chuck Schumer’s newest puppet David Hogg, one of the students who attended the school where the Parkland shooting took place.
Now, Owen’s YouTube live-streams are a thing of the past, and he is permanently banned from Twitter, joining the likes of Milo in Twitter jail. They’ve done this with Dr. Jordan Peterson, they’ve done this with Steven Crowder, and even Diamond and Silk, the two famous black Trump supporters, while accounts that openly support ISIS and genocide against white people here in America are too many to count.
The time to take action is now. If you become a prominent voice in the conservative movement, this will happen to you too and that is a fact. We young conservatives need to wake up the older generation that is unaware of how serious this war for the soul of America is becoming. It’s time for us to fight back.
