Andy Ngo, a journalist known for his reporting on anarcho-communist group Antifa, said his podcast was permanently suspended by Soundcloud.
Ngo, also the editor-at-large for the Post Millennial, wrote on Twitter that the music-sharing and podcast website “has permanently banned me & my podcast @YouShouldNgo.”
“In an email, it says I violated its community guidelines without naming the alleged offending content,” he wrote, adding that guests he’s had on the show include Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, and Douglas K. Murray.
The terms state that users cannot upload content “that is abusive, libellous, 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.”
But SoundCloud didn’t provide an exact instance where Ngo’s podcast violated its terms.
Ngo hasn’t uploaded a new episode of his podcast since March 2020, which featured Imam Tawhidi in a discussion about the similarities of Islamic terrorists and Antifa.
In a statement to Fox News this week, Ngo said SoundCloud accused him of “incitement to violence.” Still, he added, the firm didn’t provide any evidence.
