“Relatable with Allie Stuckey” Podcast Removed From Spotify

by James Silberman Read Profile arrow_right_alt

Spotify has removed “Relatable With Allie Stuckey” from their streaming music and podcast platform. The move followed Stuckey’s recent episode in which she discussed the United Methodist Church’s inter-denominational struggle over gay “marriage.” Stuckey is a Christian and a conservative.

As reported by The Blaze last year, Spotify contracts the Southern Poverty Law Center, a far-left group known for slandering Biblical Christians, conservatives, and others, to police their platform for hateful content. In June of 2018, the SPLC was ordered to pay the British-based Quilliam Foundation $3.375 million for defamation. Others have since filed lawsuits against the SPLC.

A man who opened fire at an office of the conservative Family Research Council in 2012 specifically cited the SPLC as the inspiration of his shooting. The SPLC included the Family Research Council on its “Hate Map.” The SPLC still classifies the Family Research Council as an “extremist group” and a “hate group.” The positions held by the Family Research Council regarding sexuality are orthodox Christian positions.

In January, Spotify banned PragerU from advertising on its platform. According to an article at the SPLC’s website, “PragerU’s ‘5 Minute Ideas’ videos have become an indispensable propaganda device for the right.” They go on to say that because Dave Rubin did a video for PragerU, and because Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Jospeh Watson have been on Dave Rubin’s show, PragerU is complicit in racism. The articles finishes by concluding, “PragerU seems to be yet another node on the internet connecting conservative media consumers to the dark corners of the extreme right.”

The Resurgent has reached out to Spotify for an explanation. Spotify has not responded or commented publicly on the situation.

UPDATE: A day after removing it, Spotify has returned “Relatable with Allie Stuckey” to their podcast library. The company has not yet given an explanation of what happened.
