Twitter apologized, but only because they were called out. They still haven’t done anything about the vile Jew-hatred spewed by Louis Farrakhan, and they won’t. I have been shadow banned and many of my followers banned for being conservative, but that vile Jew-hater is sanctioned and normed. Twitter has silenced numerous conservative voices in the run-up to the midterms, as have the other social media giants. They are desperate to control the public discourse so that only leftists’ voices are heard, and the Democrats win big victories. Nor will this vile censorship end after the elections. Antitrust action is urgently needed.
“Twitter Apologizes for Allowing ‘Kill All Jews’ to Become a Trending Topic,” by Charlie Nash, Breitbart, November 2, 2018 (thanks to Todd):
Twitter apologized, Friday, after allowing “Kill All Jews” to becoming a top trending topic on the social network.
“Kill All Jews” became a top trending topic on Twitter, Thursday, after the phrase was graffitied by a vandal onto a Brooklyn synagogue.
“This phrase should not have appeared in trends, and we’re sorry for this mistake,” claimed a Twitter spokesman to the Wrap. “At times, we do prevent certain content from trending and we have now done so with this trend. This was trending as a result of coverage and horrified reactions to the vandalism against a synagogue in New York. Regardless, it should not have appeared as a trend.”
On Twitter’s help page, the company explains that sometimes it “may prevent certain content from trending,” including trends which, “Contain profanity or adult/graphic references,” “Incite hate on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease,” and, “Violate the Twitter Rules.”
Twitter has faced repeated criticism for refusing to take action against anti-Semitism on its platform, most notably from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan — despite the fact that Twitter frequently suspends popular conservative and libertarian accounts.
“Just in from a @Twitter spokesperson: Louis Farrakhan’s tweet comparing Jews to termites is not in violation of the company’s policies. The policy on dehumanizing language has not yet been implemented,” declared Buzzfeed News’ Joe Bernstein on Twitter in October. “So if you want to compare Jews to rats/insects — get it in while you can!”…
