Robertson highlighted the channel in a post on Twitter over the weekend, providing a screenshot of Leavitt’s channel with titles such as The Injustice of Social Justice, In Praise of Cultural Appropriation, and Are Thoughtcrimes Becoming Real, the latter being a reference to the novel 1984 by George Orwell.
