Analysis / Bias
In the past, virtually every article/video is positive toward right-leaning positions and negative towards the left. For example, BPS promoted the fake conspiracy that Hillary Clinton has Parkinson’s Disease during the election of 2016. They also promote the conspiracy that George Soros is behind funding everything anti-right: George SOROS: The One-Man Illuminati Machine. Other than promoting conspiracies they also advocate for the Men’s Rights Movement (anti-feminism). They also have categories that rail against Islam and Black Lives Matter.
According to the Shorenstein Center, “BPS’s worldview overlaps with older ideas from many diverse movements and ideologies such as white nationalism, neo-Nazism, anti-Semitism, conservatism, classical liberalism, libertarianism, and Christian conservatism.”
Finally, in a report by the Soufan Center titled WHITE SUPREMACY EXTREMISM: The Transnational Rise of the Violent White Supremacist Movement, “BPS produces videos that contain themes and imagery often associated with white nationalism and anti-feminism, and its comment boards are saturated with anti-Semitic overtones. According to BPS, BPS was briefly deleted and demonetized by YouTube, which took to Twitter to bemoan the enforcement action.”
Overall, we rate Black Pigeon Speaks extreme right biased and questionable based on the promotion of conspiracy theories and propaganda and the promotion of white nationalism and supremacy. (D. Van Zandt 8/3/2017) Updated (8/8/2021)
