After conservative podcaster Steven Crowder exclusively obtained leaked images of the transgender Nashville mass shooter’s manifesto and published them on Monday, Big Tech immediately began censoring and suppressing the story to prevent it from spreading to the public.

Crowder read the three leaked pages of the manifesto line by line on his podcast Monday morning, which included the shooter writing: “I’m ready…I hope my victims aren’t.”


The shooter, 28-year-old Audrey Hale, killed three nine-year-old children and three adults at a Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 28, 2023. Hale, a woman who claimed to be a man, was ultimately killed by police during the incident — which she predicted in her manifesto, noting in the schedule for what she called her “death day” that around 12:37 p.m. was “time 2 die.”

After Crowder published the leaked images, they began to go viral on social media. While X, formerly known as Twitter, allowed the images to remain on the platform because X owner Elon Musk values free speech, other platforms quickly began censoring the information.

When people try to share the manifesto on Facebook, they receive a notification informing them that their post violates “Community Standards on violence and incitement.”


“Your post looks similar to content that we’ve removed for going against our Community Standards. You can delete it now to avoid potential account restrictions,” the warning continued.

Google initially had a warning at the top of the page for users who search for information about the Nashville shooter’s manifesto, warning people to look for “trusted” sources of information because search results on the topic “are changing quickly” and “it can sometimes take time for reliable sources to publish information.”

The warning has since been removed.

Far-left Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connell has since announced an investigation into the leak of the documents, essentially confirming their authenticity. The investigation announcement has prompted backlash from critics who argue that the manifesto should have already been released by the police department a long time ago.

Crowder and his employees have already stated that they would “go to jail” to protect their sources.
