SHE HAS BEEN FIRED FROM HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION
Facebook abruptly seized Anchorage Assemblywoman’s Jamie Allard’s official Facebook page — the one she uses for her Assembly role.
With no explanation, Allard saw her page cancelled after she raised concerns about the cancel culture, and license plates that had drawn complaints.
Also, the governor has removed Allard from the Human Rights Commission, with no explanation, but clearly because of the things she wrote on Facebook about the license plates.
Allard said her only concern was that many words — REICH or FUHRER to begin with — could be banned for any reason, that these are people’s last names, and that this is a slippery slope for any government to take.
The two attorneys who brought the license plates into the public discussion are lawyers for the Recall Dunleavy Committee. The photographs of the plates appear to be old, certainly there was no snow evident that would indicate they are recent photos. An investigation into the plates revealed they had already been revoked by the state.
Allard had made note that “Fuhrer” is a German word for “Leader.” Allard, who is Hispanic, had no intention of defending Nazis, she said. She was discussing cancel culture’s knee-jerk reactions.
“I told people that this was going to happen to me; I knew I would be deplatformed,” she said.
Allard is on MeWe and Gab, two other social media platforms that honor free speech and own their own server, through DuckDuckGo. Google blocks access to Gab.
(Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story said her personal Facebook page had also been removed. That is not the case. We regret the error.)
