Michelle Malkin, Airbnb BANS columnist, for attending an American Renaissance event in Nashville
Conservative columnist and white nationalist ally Michelle Malkin was kicked out of Airbnb on Wednesday, February 2. The columnist was expelled for attending the rally of the white nationalist organization American Renaissance in Nashville last November.
“As per our policies, if we become aware of users who are members of or actively affiliated with hate groups, we remove them from Airbnb,” company spokesperson Ben Breit told The Daily Beast.

The site also banned Michelle’s husband because most of his trips were often booked from his account.
“The new twist in my case is that Airbnb is suing my HUSBAND just because he’s married to me. Are my kids next? What about the other #AmericaFirst families?” Malkin wrote on Twitter.
3/ I contacted @airbnb asking what steps they took to get my full remarks at AmRen 2022 and how many other FAMILIES of #americafirst patriots like mine have been victims of reprisals against individuals deemed dangerous to their peaceful and lawful freedom of expression.

“Of course, this latest ongoing escalation of the de-platform wars isn’t just about Airbnb or me. It’s about reducing the underlying power of the SPLC and ADL to oppress their most effective political adversaries and sabotage every aspect of our professional and personal lives,” Malkin continued.
Malkin called the ban “the grim reality of life in Woke America 2022” in a rebuttal for Airbnb. She said her speech condemned both “swamp Democrats and establishment Republicans for betraying us.”
“The speech looked at the K-20 metastasis of the anti-white agenda, the whitewashing of black attacks on Asians by corporate media, and the long campaign to censor nationalist dissidents who prioritize the America,” she wrote.
Airbnb says it removed one million users for violating its anti-hate policy. The company clarified that the policy requires users to “treat all members of the Airbnb community, regardless of race, religion, national origin, ethnic origin, disability, gender, gender identity , sexual orientation or age, with respect and without judgment or bias. ”
The heavenly platform said it kicked users for breach of covenant, specifically for removing white nationalists attending the infamous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017.
Malkin sent a letter to media platform The Daily Beast, where she wrote, “didn’t use Airbnb to book accommodation in Nashville,” but her ban was due to her speech at the rally.
