Did you know that Twitter had to be sued before they took down the tens of thousands of ISIS related accounts... but didn't hesitate one second to ban Milo Yiannopoulos over some racist tweets that his followers were dishing out?
So, free speech for ISIS but not for Yiannopoulos (AKA the "most fabulous supervillain on the Internet"). A man I consider a hero, btw. Given that "he is a vocal critic of third wave feminism, Islam, social justice theory, [and] political correctness". So the fuck what if "he directly attacked Jones, calling her barely literate and describing her as a man" (This would be Leslie Jones of SNL and the rebooted Ghostbusters)?
I mean, Jones DOESN'T look manish? No way you can deny that she does. Point is, how is it Milo's fault if some of his Twitter followers then continued the attack, throwing some very racist tweets into the mix?
Addressing the ban, Yiannopoulos said "With the cowardly suspension of my account, Twitter has confirmed itself as a safe space for Muslim terrorists and Black Lives Matter extremists, but a no-go zone for conservatives?". To which I say "right on".
Previously Yiannopoulos told a female journalist that she "deserved to be harassed" in response to her complaints about threatening messages she had been receiving due to an article Yiannopoulos had written about her. Clearly his follower got the message after this incident, which is why Twitter held Yiannopoulos responsible.
But people are constantly being bullied and threatened on Twitter (with complaints being filed) and the only time that these Twitter dullards do something about is when it either A) embarrasses them or B) provides them with some lame opportunity to virtue-signal to minorities, their fellow progressives, etc.
Amongst the worst human beings on the planet are those without a consistent moral yardstick and, yes, consider Twitter added to that list. Which I totally have, BTW. Meaning I can stand in judgement and do so completely without hypocrisy.
IMO they've either got to hire a shitload more people to police Twitter and ban all offenders, or immediately reinstate Milo Yiannopoulos and allow him to continue harassing women and (in general) being a total asshole.
Me, I favor the latter. Because, how ridiculous is it that a Conservative can't refer to a hulking woman as a man without being criticized and blamed for encouraging the haters? And, as for his comment that Jones is "barely literate"... she is Black, isn't she? So she was hired (initially) as a writer for SNL? What does that prove?
Point is, Milo Yiannopoulos is a Conservative, and that's why he got banned. As well as an asshole. Not that there is anything wrong with that (I say this as an asshole myself). And he was previously suspended twice. That probably was the deciding factor. Oh, and also that BS I mentioned earlier about "virtue signaling".
If I were dictator of the US for a day one of my first directives would be to nuke 1355 Market Street Ste. 900 in San Francisco, California. Not a full blown nuke, mind you, just one of those so-called tactical nukes.
