The new fascism of the Left marches onward. From Time:
Airbnb has deleted the accounts of some users affiliated with far-right political groups planning to attend a “Unite the Right” rally organized by white nationalists this week in Charlottesville, Virginia.
A spokesperson for the popular home-sharing platform confirmed via email that some users were removed from the platform after it was determined that they planned to use booked properties for activities viewed as “antithetical” to the service’s community guidelines.
In an emailed statement to TIME, Airbnb said that it had established a “Community Commitment,” and that ” to make good on our mission of belonging, those who are members of the Airbnb community accept people regardless of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age.”
Rod Dreher adds:
Notice what Airbnb did. They ran background checks on these people, determined that they were going to a far-right political rally, and refused them accommodation. Not only did they refuse them accommodation at this particular event, they have blacklisted them forever.
