Apple CEO Tim Cook defended censorship by claiming it would be a “sin” not to remove content on Apple’s platform, but Apple allows songs like “F*** White People” to stay on iTunes.

Speaking at Anti-Defamation League’s “Never is Now Summit” on Monday, Cook made a bizarre attack on free speech.

“We only have one message for those who seek to push hate, division, and violence,” Cook said. “You have no place on our platform. You have no home here.”

Of course, content that allegedly pushes “division” only applies to conservative content. Cook would be hard-pressed to remove far-left content because conservatives are the ones pushing “division” in the eyes of the left.

In reality, without “division,” the left would simply dominate everyone without opposition, which is clearly big tech’s goal.

If Apple was serious about broadly censoring “hate, division, and violence” without an ideological motive, they wouldn’t allow songs like “F*** White People” and “Suck My D*** H**” to stay on iTunes.

Apple’s platform also has countless mainstream rap songs threatening violence against President Donald Trump.

Later in his speech, Cook was a little more transparent about his agenda.

“And as we showed this year, we won’t give a platform to violent conspiracy theorists on the App Store. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do,” Cook said.

Cook must be referring to Apple’s ban against controversial radio show host Alex Jones.

However, Cook is completely permissive of far-left conspiracy theorists. Nobody will get banned from iTunes for peddling their crazed “Russian collusion” conspiracy theory.

It seems the term “conspiracy theorist” can be conveniently applied to anybody who makes a speculative argument that Apple disagrees with.

“I believe the most sacred thing that each of us is given is our judgement. Our morality. Our own innate desire to separate right from wrong,” Cook said. “Choosing to set that responsibility aside at a moment of trial is a sin.”

If Cook actually valued “judgement,” he would let Apple users judge content for themselves. Content shouldn’t be censored because Cook and other executives at Apple find it to be “wrong.”

It’s not a “sin” to believe people should be free to have opinions you disagree with.

    I wonder if he has banned anything that is associated with ANTIFA? I sort of doubt it. And what about BLM? They were outraged that people wanted to say Blue Lives Matter.

    All I can say is he needs to accept Jesus Christ as his Saviour. If he doesn’t, the second he dies he will be in hell.

    Steve Jobs would spin in his grave if he knew all the things this twerp is doing to wreck Apple’s legacy as a company that respects privacy and freedom of expression.

    I don’t own a single apple product and looks like I never will. Lifetime boycott for their products and services in this household.

    Looks like I may need to get rid of my iPhone for a Samsung Android. That is the only Apple product I own but that’s about to come to an emd. When it comes to liberals who want to hang their ‘diversity wanted’ sign conservatives and Christian need not apply. Sin! What does this heathen know about sin. If he were a Christian then he would know about forgiveness, judgement and real tolerance.

    These ignorant CEOs think it’s just dandy to disrespect millions of conservatives across the USA. Ask Dick’s Sporting Goods how crossing the right worked out for them.
