Fox News host Laura Ingraham announced that she would be boycotting Airbnb after the popular online vacation rental marketplace denied services to conservative pundit Michelle Malkin and her family after accusing her of being “actively affiliated with hate groups.”

This week on her radio show, Ingraham discussed Airbnb’s discriminatory and fascistic measures with her “good friend” Malkin who was banned from the service based on information from the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center which claimed that she attended a conference by a group that was deemed to be an unacceptable organization where she was also featured as a speaker.

In remarks reported by Mediaite, Ingraham said of Airbnb, “I am cautiously very optimistic about what lies ahead. And I think all these corporations, they will find out when people of faith, people of good conscience from all backgrounds find out well they don’t have to take their business here.”

“I’m not using Airbnb. Bye. Goodbye. I’ve used them before, not going to use them now,” she added.

Last week, Ingraham took to Twitter to blast Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky as  “just another smug, woke billionaire.”

Joining the SPLC was the Anti-Defamation League which more often than not serves as the speech police for the political left, lending its clout to the ongoing cleansing of conservative voices who are now also facing persecution from corporations that deny them services, a trend that is growing at an alarming rate.

According to the ADL, “Malkin’s bold support of and interaction with white supremacists points to the increasingly fine line between people who call themselves ‘American nationalists’ and recognizable white supremacy,” Mediaite reported.

The Daily Beast quoted Ben Breit, a spokesman for Airbnb who said, “Consistent with our policies, if we become aware of users who are members of or are actively affiliated with hate groups, we remove them from Airbnb.”

Malkin took to Twitter last week to bring attention to what she described as “retaliation for my free speech and AmericaFirst journalism.”

She also warned of the precedent being set with the corporate retaliation against family members.

Malkin gave her own account of Airbnb’s reaction to her speech at the “peaceful conference” for the taboo group where she talked about critical race theory in schools as well as the media’s failure to properly cover the spate of attacks on Asians by black thugs.

“As I’ve done throughout my career, I lambasted both Swamp Democrats and establishment Republicans for selling us out. The speech delved into the K-20 metastasis of anti-white curriculum, the corporate media’s whitewashing of black-on-Asian attacks, and the long campaign to censor nationalist dissidents who put America first,” Malkin wrote, “A week after my talk, San Francisco-based Airbnb notified me that I was banned from using its services ever again and imperiously deleted my account. Poof!”

According to Malkin, she received an email from a person who identified herself as Cedar from AirBnb’s Trust team.

“It has come to our attention that you were a keynote speaker for the 2021 American Renaissance Conference earlier this month in Tennessee. Airbnb’s community policies prohibit people who are members of or actively associate with known hate groups,” the letter read. “Due to your promotion and participation in a known white nationalist and white supremacist conference, we have determined that we will remove your account from Airbnb. This is consistent with action we’ve taken to ban people associated with this conference in past years.”

The most critical point remains that the definition of what constitutes “hate groups” is determined by organizations with extreme leftist ideologies such as the SPLC and ADL which both have a disproportionate amount of influence on corporations and a media that regards them as an unbiased authority, despite ample evidence to the contrary.
