Savanah Hernandez, 25, is one of the most stifled young journalists in America. She’s intrepid, prolific and opinionated. But because she has relentlessly exposed the lies of Big Government, Big Business, Big Pharma and Big Alphabet (LGBTQIXYZ), she will never be embraced or promoted by establishment gatekeepers. Because she is right-thinking, right-leaning and a proud America First advocate, you won’t see her invited to appear on mainstream corporate media — even though her videos have been viewed tens of millions of times over the past five years.

Savanah first caught my attention several years ago when she bravely plunged into left-wing mobs to expose their hatred and violence firsthand. I’ve interviewed her for her work on Black Lives Matter riots and the impact of COVID-19 vaccines on fertility. Last week, Savanah was on the ground reporting from Georgia Tech’s McAuley Aquatic Center, where the NCAA swimming championships took place. She nabbed an interview with an outspoken Virginia Tech female athlete whose teammate was beaten by biological male Lia Thomas, the hulking “trans” competitor for the University of Pennsylvania wreaking havoc in collegiate women’s swimming.

“It’s heartbreaking to see someone who went through puberty as a male, and has the body of a male, be able to absolutely blow away the competition,” the Vtech athlete told Savanah. “And you go into it with the mindset that you don’t have a chance.”

Savanah’s interviews with the Vtech athlete and several other protesters and counter-protesters at the NCAA championships went viral across social media last week — and were shared by top-rated cable news host Tucker Carlson. Savanah had been banned by Twitter in mid-November 2020 without explanation after President Donald Trump shared one of her multimillion-viewed viral videos. But she had created a second account for her independent podcast, “Rapid Fire,” to spread her solo investigative reporting.

On Monday, she was banned again. I reached out to her for a mini-profile so that you can know more about this remarkable young reporter and how to find her work.

Q: How many times have you been banned/censored/suspended from Silicon Valley platforms and otherwise silenced?

A: Back in 2020, I had my original-reporting account banned on Twitter. I was exposing BLM and antifa for their rioting and violent tactics. During my reporting of Austin, Texas-based antifa, 10 people mobbed and robbed me for reporting on their illegal activities (first time I was silenced in real life).

In November 2020, Trump retweeted my clip from the Million MAGA March of everyone peacefully singing “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The clip surpassed 8 million views, and three days later, Twitter deleted my entire account without any explanation.

I started an account for my podcast and then started using it to showcase my reporting. I was the first to get an interview with an NCAA athlete regarding the truth about Lia Thomas. The clip made it on Tucker and amassed over 1.8 million views. Twitter deleted the account this week for “ban evasion.”

ORDER IT NOW

On Instagram (@savwith1n), Savanah’s clips of peaceful Trump supporters at the Jan. 6 rally were removed for “violence and promoting hatred.” Instagram is “now going back to my posts from six months ago,” Savanah told me, and deleted her video featuring a collegiate athlete who suffered myocarditis. “Not sure how many more posts can be banned before they take the full account.”

On YouTube (Sav Says), Savanah told me: “I started my own show called Rapid Fire. I’m currently on my fourth strike. If I get one more, I’m permanently suspended. My first three strikes coincided with me calling out the COVID vaccine.” Her latest show, “calling out NATO, Ukrainian corrupting and the biolabs (before it was mainstream news) … was again censored for ‘medical misinformation.'”

Q: Does free speech still exist in America?

A: No. And this isn’t just about Big Tech censorship. I went and stood with a sign that read “Police Lives Matter/Say his name-David Dorn” during the BLM riots of 2020. I was attacked multiple times. You can’t stand on a street corner or go to a leftist event and ask simple questions without being attacked, silenced and harassed. I recently went to a “pro-trans surgery for kids” rally. The protesters didn’t like my politics, so they mobbed me, called me a fascist and poured water on my phone.

Q: You’ve chosen the more difficult path of remaining truly independent. How did you arrive at that decision, and what are the biggest obstacles to sustaining an independent media career/presence?

This industry is filled with a lot of fake people who are only in this for money and fame. A seldom few actually care about the truth. I want to make sure I’m always one of them. The biggest obstacles are censorship and slander and lies from the media. If you tell the truth, you get silenced by Big Tech. If that doesn’t do the trick, the media comes in and destroys your entire reputation and life.

Savanah’s fighting spirit gives me hope. “This is a war, and I will never stop exposing the corrupt entities at play,” she declared Monday. “I will continue to elevate the voices in this country that the media tries to silence.”

  1. To be truthful in public is a brave act now in this country. We are many, though. The first step in fighting this is to understand who our enemies are. Though they don’t know the word “proletariat” and have never read Das Kapital, our enemies are the same people as those a century ago.

    History does not repeat, but it sure does rhyme. They have come crawling out of the woodwork yet again.

    You can use the appropriate term for the enemy of patriotic Americans any time you like, Mrs. Malkin. Until recently none would dare call them Commies.

  2. Three obvious points. Twitter is a private corporation. All media are private corporations so it big tech. It was Republicans who have given us the regulatory regime that allows news outlets, television, and internet companies to silence conservatives. Republicans repealed the fairness doctrine and they repealed net neutrality. Republicans led by David Bossie got the Citizens United court decision. The reason Savannah can be silence on media is because of Republican measures. The way to fix the problem is with strong government regulation.

    Second point, if Savannah has problems at rallies she should press assault and battery charges on those people who attack her. That is not a speech problem, that is a problem of local police. What Savannah really wants is a police state that allows counter-protestors (such as Savannah was) to exercise a hecklers veto.

    Third, if Savannah believes the police will not do anything at public rallies, she should hire security to protect her. It is Savannah’s personal failure to use those tools provided by the free market that she finds it difficult to contribute to the marketplace of ideas. Ironically, Savannah is a real socialist, not a conservative at all. She thinks taxpayer dollars should be used to help her “speak” in public places.

    It is truly fascinating how the reality always comes through that conservatives are statists and socialists at heart. Once again for Ms Malkin’s true colors. I guess she learned something valuable at Oberlin.

    Finally common ground with Harry. Thank you , thank you , thank you, Harry, for standing up for the constitution and all the local militias across the land. As Harry has implicitly acknowledged, the 2nd Amendment calls for citizen militias to rise up in cases like these where the local junta forces are targeting or encouraging coercion against the people.
    With more and more States enacting the right of constitutional carry we should be encouraged that we can overcome the malignant junta forces that are currently and openly supporting the illiberal new secular order.
    It takes a lot of courage to stand up for the right of citizen militias to rise up against junta forces these days so Harry should be recognized for his bravery! We need more people like Harry who are willing to publicly encourage the formation of batteries of militia against the forces of evil.
    All hail Harry!
    Harry for President!

  3. I just want to let Harry Huntington know that Twitter is absolutely NOT a “private corporation.” It is public, just ask the ask the shareholders. Otherwise, he’s very good with words, but not so good with specifics and facts. Like many liberals, he either completely contradicts himself or is otherwise horribly illogical.

    Publicly traded corporations are still a "private" business and not required to comply with the First Amendment. Such private businesses, through legislative schemes, were long required to comply with the fairness doctrine (until the Republicans ended it). So my point about "private" was correct.

  4. I’m tired of reading stories about de-platforming. The platform is new and still finding its way. It’s only a matter of time until some alternative, open platform will arise. But it is annoying to see leftist snowflakes shout/shut down those with whom they disagree.

    Oh, and abolish public (tax funded) libraries. To not spend tax dollars is not censorship. It’s less government.

    Btw, Tim. You’re confusing a gov owned institution (e.g. a public school) with a private business own-able by anyone willing to purchase a share (i.e. a public corporation). The former is 100% regulated by the politicians, and complete crap. The latter has to meet certain minimum requirements of the exchange it chooses to be listed on, e.g. capitalization, but otherwise its regulation by the gov is limited to the laws of the state(s) in which it is incorporated and operates, and whatever intrusive manner by which the USG attempts to tell the corporation what to do, e.g. the EPA, FCC, IRS, and so forth. Despite the gov’s efforts, many public corporations manage to do great things.

    You don't have to read the 2nd amendment or guns into what I said about private security. I went to college with a guy who was 6'5", weighed about 350 pounds, and played defensive tackle for the college football team. The guy had a lot of promise coming out of high school, but never really developed as a football player. He also flunked out of school as a Junior. He was strong as an ox and took a job post college as a bar bouncer. We was very good as a bar bouncer. Guys would punch him and he would just stand there. He typically then grabbed the guy's arm (the puncher) and broke the arm as he tossed the guy from the bar.

    Here, Savannah could walk around a protest with about 4 guys like my bar bouncer friend. No one would touch her. They wouldn't even get close.

    Thank you for the advice, Cowboy! That's a much better alternative than attempting to successfully convince some that I should still be able to safely comingle even if I disagree.

    Harry, Harry, Harry?!

    What did we learn from Charlottesville? Among the righteous seeking to protest the degradation of their cultural artifacts included many a burly man yet the local junta forces funneled the righteous protesters unto perdition and into the evil mob whence the mob then sacrificed one of their own on a machiavellian alter.

    We have seen this replayed countless times since that time where the junta forces not only fail to protect but actively seek to lead the righteous into the hands of the evil ones.

    "The Law" has lost any notion of neutrality or fairness and is now only a cudgel against the righteous.

    Expecting bar bouncers to be able to provide protection in this environment is about as useless as expecting a lawyer to be honest and ethical.
