SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Conservative author and journalist Michelle Malkin and her husband have been banned from Airbnb for speaking at a conference last November because the company disagreed with her message.
I’ve been #bannedbyairbnb (along with my husband!) as retaliation for my free speech and #AmericaFirst journalism. It’s insane & un-American – and I could use your help fighting back. Stay tuned. https://t.co/JjZvLzRzSl #michellefightsairbnb @Airbnb pic.twitter.com/Ko6DH7IIaL

Writing in The Unz Review, Malkin said the San Francisco-based company notified her that she and her husband were banned for life for exercising free speech:
So here is the grim reality of life in Woke America 2022. In November, I spoke at a peaceful conference held by an organization that is deemed a ‘hate group’ by the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti-Defamation League. The title of my talk was ‘Race, Immigration, and Con. Inc: How I Came to See the Light.’
“It was a wide-ranging discussion of my three decades of reporting on the nation’s demographic and cultural deterioration—which I’ve chronicled firsthand on college campuses, at our borders, and in every crime-ridden, riot-prone, and mass migration-transformed metropolis from Los Angeles to Seattle and Portland, to Baltimore, Washington, D.C, New York, and Denver.”
2/ The new twist in my case is @airbnb going after my HUSBAND for simply being married to me. Are my kids next? How about other #AmericaFirst families? Anti-COVID tyranny spouses & kids? Where does it stop?https://t.co/FI0nLEgwOC

She explained that she spoke her mind at the conference, attacking both sides of the aisle:
“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.
“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!”
On Wednesday, Malkin shared a screenshot of an email she received on November 24, 2021, from Airbnb informing her of the lifetime ban. The email read in part:
“My name’s Cedar, and I’m with 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.
“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.”

Malkin pointed out that she was aware that Airbnb has acted against other activists who have spoken out against “woke” Democrats and establishment Republicans who have sold out.
She also stated that the company went too far when banning her husband, who did not attend the conference:
“It’s not enough that I — a “woman of color” (the Left’s own descriptive label, not mine) and mother of two multiracial children – was pronounced guilty of “hate” crimes and “promotion” of “white supremacist” ideas for delivering a speech whose full content Airbnb didn’t even bother to obtain from me.
“The Airbnb bullies also banned my equally non-violent, non-hateful husband – who did not attend the conference, and who is not a public figure or activist.”
She explained that Airbnb banned her husband only because he would sometimes book her trips for her.
She wrote that neither her nor her husband violated any rules or regulations of Airbnb, and wondered how many others have had family members banned because of their conservative views:
“Neither of us had ever had a negative review, complaint, or policy violation of any kind. Are my kids next? Are yours?
“Surprise: No response from Airbnb to my media inquiries on how many other family members of banned conservative and nationalist Airbnb customers have been swept into their thought police dragnet.”
The email from Airbnb informed her that she could only appeal the ban by showing that she did not speak at the conference. She said she would not make a false claim just to get her account restored:
“You’re damned right I spoke peacefully and lawfully to the peaceful and lawful 2021 American Renaissance conference and was honored to receive a warm welcome.
“I resoundingly reject the notion that condemning Black Lives Matter and Antifa terrorists constitutes ‘hate.’ I defy the Airbnb thought police who consider my husband and me ‘untrustworthy’ and ‘dangerous’ threats to community safety on par with convicted felons and sex traffickers.”

Report: Man, 26, who raped little girl then identified as a female, won’t be charged as an adult by LA DA
February 2, 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA – A violent 26-year-old child sex offender convicted of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl will serve a two-year sentence in a Los Angeles County juvenile center thanks to the progressive policies of the L.A. County District Attorney.
A man molested a 10-year-old girl in a bathroom in 2014.
He then began identifying as female.
LA DA George Gascon refuses to try him as an adult.
Sentenced to two years in juvenile lockup with females and will not have to register as a sex offender.https://t.co/Ptpg0Y6XmP

James “Hannah” Tubbs,26, who now identifies as a transgender woman, pleaded guilty earlier this month to sexually assaulting a girl in a Denny’s bathroom in Palmdale, California, in 2014 when he was 17.
Tubbs identified as a male when he attacked the child on New Year’s Day in 2014, just before his 18th birthday. Prosecutors said he grabbed the girl by the throat and locked her in a bathroom stall. Tubbs then put his hands down her pants and sexually assaulted her. Tubbs continued the assault until someone else walked into the restroom.
The investigation into the child’s attack went public and the L.A. County Board of Supervisors issued a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
Despite the reward, Tubbs remained free and undetected until 2019, when a sample of his DNA was collected by authorities for a battery case in Idaho, according to Lt. Richard Ruiz of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Bureau.

The DNA sample linked Tubbs to the sexual assault, and prosecutors filed charges in 2020, the same year Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón took office.
Gascón has pushed a progressive agenda since entering office, and his “reforms” included refusing to permit juvenile offenders to be tried in adult courts. Tubbs, 26-years-old at the time of his arrest, he was only 17 when the crime was committed. Despite pleas from prosecutors and the judge, the DA refused to move the case to adult court.
Gascón defended his decision stating scientific data shows that adolescent brain development does not end until age 25, and that juvenile offenders can be rehabilitated. He went further, stating juvenile offenders serving time in adult prisons would only corrupt them further.
On Thursday, prosecutors argued in court for the judge to transfer the 26-year-old to an adult jail, saying in their opinion, the law gives the judge that authority.
“In crystal clear terminology provides this court with the authority to order a transfer of an individual to sheriff’s custody, or to a county jail facility, after that individual has turned 19 years of age.”

Los Angeles County Judge Mario Barrera on Thursday ordered Hannah Tubbs to serve two years in a juvenile facility after she pleaded guilty, saying the DA’s refusal to request the case be transferred to adult court tied his hands:
“This court will not disregard what the legislature has put onto it as a limitation.”
Lt. Ruiz said people should contact the DA’s office to oppose the DA’s policy:
“I would ask the public to reach out to Mr. Gascón and express their concerns and their outrage on a matter such as this involving a sexual predator.”
The LA County Sheriff’s office offered to house Tubbs in its county jail, but Judge Barrera “decided he did not have the authority to issue an order housing Tubbs in county jail or with the sheriff’s department,” according to Deputy District Attorney Shea Sanna.

Barrera criticized Gascón for the decision not to transfer the case to adult court, and allowing a child sex offender to be sentenced to juvenile court:
“I want to be clear. The filing of a transfer motion is entirely within the discretion of the district attorney.”
Kathryn Barger, chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, told Fox News that the sentence was unsatisfactory:
“Judge Barrera’s hands were tied today – due to the fact that the DA’s office failed to file a motion to transfer Tubbs to adult criminal court, which is where she rightly belongs. Instead, we’re left with a 26-year-old individual sentenced to two years in a juvenile facility in isolation, separated by sight and sound from the other juveniles.
“To carry out justice, all of the oars in the criminal justice system must be rowing in the same direction. Today, that simply didn’t happen.”
In a January 18 letter to Barger, Gascón acknowledged that Tubbs would have to be housed in a juvenile facility under his policies:
“I am shocked and outraged that she evaded capture for so long. The harm that she caused is irreparable. Tubbs has been ‘sentenced’ to our county’s secure treatment facility for youth (STFY).
“(The location) has yet to be approved.”
https://t.co/LSODsEUlDR “Because of [LA District Attorney] George Gascon’s blanket policy against transferring any juvenile to adult court, even if the 17-year-old rapes or murders an innocent child, James Tubbs will not have to register as a sex offender,” child abuse prosecutor
— SweetBabyJane FreeJ6FreedomFighters! All4 Liberty! (@KathrynJane805) January 29, 2022
The Los Angeles Times reported Gascón was concerned about the offender’s treatment in an adult prison, writing:
“The district attorney also expressed concern that Tubbs herself would be victimized if placed in an adult facility as a transgender woman and noted a probation report actually recommended Tubbs be sentenced to home confinement. Instead, Gascón said, prosecutors asked for Tubbs to be kept in custody for two years where she could receive treatment and therapy.”
L.A. County Deputy District Attorney John McKinney said the DA’s policies will result in the sex offender being back on the street:
“What is happening is our district attorney is ushering him right out the door, back onto the streets of this county and God knows where else he might roam. It’s madness, it makes a mockery of our criminal justice system.
