Airbnb Cancels Bookings for Anyone Attending ‘Unite the Right’ Rally

32

Airbnb, a popular alternate to hotels, has canceled a booking for a group that had planned to stay in Charlottesville, Virginia, for purposes of attending a rally.

Freedom of assembly, anyone?

The rally was aimed at protesting a local board’s decision to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee.

Airbnb told the coordinator of the rally, Jason Kessler, that his group had violated the company’s standards.

The Daily Caller News Foundation has more:

Airbnb told event coordinator Jason Kessler that the group violated the company’s community standards, which requires that all members “accept people regardless of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender, sexual orientation, or age.”

Airbnb canceled the reservations made for the use of a white supremacist group that uses the name “SCNazi” on Facebook. Officials with the group announced plans to attend the rally, offering to organize lodging as well as travel and other considerations for members and supporters exclusively through the private Facebook group.

In addition to canceling the bookings SCNazi made to reserve nine separate homes for its members, group leaders reported their accounts were permanently deleted for failing to live up to the Airbnb community guidelines, according to Vice.

“It’s time for the #AltRight to flex its muscles and boycott @Airbnb. Also need to consider a lawsuit,” event coordinator Jason Kessler write on Twitter.

White Nationalist Richard Spencer decried the fact that the city of Charlottesville formerly ordered the event be moved to a location just outside the city. “We are clearly in the right and we can win,” he asserted on his youtube page declaring the rally will take place as planned. “This is going to be really really fun, see you soon!”

The “Unite the Right” rally will be held in Charlottesville Saturday in response to the city board voting to remove a Confederate statue. A district judge ordered the statue will remain in place, but the group plans to protest the proposed removal during the course of the weekend.

  • I can understand why Airbnb cancelled the reservations. The name of the FB group says it all.

      Perhaps next they will want to deny use to any groups that support the state of Israel, because they represent “hate and oppression of Palestinian rights.” Be careful what you wish for – because it can come full circle.

        You’re right…unfortunately.

    Surprised CNN and MSNBC isn’t all over this one.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Community standards you say? Well then, community standards who’ll preclude using airbnb or anything other than a target of ridicule and contempt.

  • Kevin

    Never using Airbnb again. Who are they to choose events and causes?!

  • santashandler

    “Airbnb told the coordinator of the rally, Jason Kessler, that his group had violated the company’s standards.” Oh, the ‘standards’ they made up that morning. What a joke. This is clearly discrimination but, because it is directed toward a right-leaning group, such discrimination is to be applauded apparently.

    • Kayla

      The rally supports Hitler. Still want to stand with them?

      • 1936benz

        Yes, not because I agree with them (which I certainly do not), but because the right of free expression was the very first right our founding fathers established and secured for us. Start chipping away at that, just because you despise the message, and you never know where you’ll end up.

      • santashandler

        If you start picking and choosing who you want to allow to express their viewpoints, there will soon be no democracy. And another Hitler WILL be in power. If you can’t see that, perhaps you should go back and read about Hitler. He never allowed any dissenting viewpoints. Is that what you want for America.

      • satcatchet

        Oh crap, you just opened a can of whoop as♤ and your about to get it.

  • Alleged Comment

    LOL!

    Yeah, that’s discrimination. I thought the left was against discrimination?

  • JUSTsss

    Next it’s “Christian” groups because they believe in ************.

    • satcatchet

      Who, Jesus Christ?

  • Roy Jennings

    The best way to fight the left is to use the same legisaltion they use to fight the centrists and right. In the UK airbnb could not prevent anyone staying just because of political persuasion. There are plenty of legal precedents that should ensure whats right for the left is right for the right!!

  • Kayla

    Good! I am a card carrying Republican. This rally is NOT about free speech. This is a rally led under the guise of free speech but it is really a rally for a gathering modern day Nazis and KKK aka white supremacists . Check out the Daily Stormer. Look at who their speakers are. On their event pages they talk about first stop Charlotesville, Next stop Treblinka. Still want to condemn AirBnb? Wake up!

    • James

      “Look at who their speakers are.” So, then, it IS about free speech, isn’t it? Free Speech is NOT about supporting speech we agree with, it has to be about allowing speech we strenuously disagree with or it means nothing at all. You people who oppose free speech are far more horrible and rotten and dangerous and destructive than anything the neo-nazis or the KKK might say. First you silence them, but are you able to say where it stops? No, you can’t, because you’re not intelligent enough to see that far ahead.

      • 1936benz

        Thank you. The First Amendment is not about protecting speech that everyone agrees with – it is to protect speech that some (or many) of us find offensive. It is only a matter of time before someone finds something disagreeable about ANY speech. To say that the speech of the KKK or “neo-Nazis” should not be permitted is emulating those very same people, only from an opposite end of the political-cultural spectrum.

      • satcatchet

        WHAAA BAAAMMM.

        Kayla hun, you just got slapped down. Go loose some weight.

    • Loyal Phillips-Kuhn

      Discrimination IS discrimination… Free Speech has nothing to do with the speakers, whether it be a White Nazi or a Black Preacher.

    • Christine Marie

      Kayla, You are the pot calling the kettle Nazi.

  • 1936benz

    I dislike radicalism in any form, but the right of free expression was the very first right our founding fathers established and secured for us. Start chipping away at that, just because you despise the message, and you never know where you’ll end up.

  • aRonald Weiland

    Airbnb is only protecting their system. Do you want drunken, pot smoking sexual brawls in your home or on your property, I don’t think so.

  • satcatchet

    Well now, if I get sued by the queers for not baking a cake, renting to them a bridle dress or anything else I find offensive, why can’t I sue this Airbnb for denying my request for lodging?

    • Loyal Phillips-Kuhn

      That sounds only fair. Discrimination IS discrimination…

  • Christian Gains

    More “DIVIDE AND CONQUER” ops by the left…They’re declared goal is to take EVERY OPPORTUNITY to do just THAT, across the Nation, magnifying the division between the “LEFT / COMMUNISTS AND the RIGHT American Freedom lovers”…

    They FULLY intend to undermine the values that America has been established upon for 200+ years!

    “Anti-Fa” will come ONLY to cause chaos, confusion & fear! (ALL the products of EVIL!)…Our folks come to protect the RIGHT of History! The “WAR OF NORTHERN AGGRESSION” was fought by the Confederacy AGAINST TYRANNY…NOT for SLAVERY! There was NOTHING “CIVIL” about the war…and…It was NOT fought between the States, it was fought between the Principles of Constitutionalism OR TYRANNY!!!

    The very FIRST legislative act by the Confederate Legislature was: “ALL SLAVE WERE FREED”! (The previous year the Plantation owners & any other slave owners, had met & determined that SLAVERY was no longer economically viable).

    Therefore the vote against it the following year!

    “The Victors Write the History”…WE simply intend to REMEMBER the REAL STORY through monuments to those who gave they’re ALL to STOP LINCOLN’S DICTATORSHIP! And!

    EVEN HE realized that he’d been “HAD”, once he learned that the financing of BOTH SIDES was by the “Houses of Rothchild” (The French “House” & British “House” National Banks — Owned by the Rothchild merchant Bankers!). AND! ALL in an effort to steer the young Nation in a particular direction…(“The borrower is servant to the lender”…Prov. 22:7)…Hint, hint, (20 TRILLION $$$$???)

    The left have tried in the past to tie Robert Spencer to Richard Spencer.
