Twitter’s enforcement of new rules about ‘hateful and abusive behavior’ meant that this watchdog group has been suspended.
The ever-controversial Britain First group has been suspended from Twitter for violating the new rules to counteract ‘hate’.
You recall Britain First, they are the ones that march with crosses in Muslim neighborhoods and attempt to talk to locals.
Twitter has suspended accounts belonging to the far-right group Britain First and its leaders Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding, just weeks after US President Donald Trump shared tweets posted by Fransen on his personal account.
The move came a day before British MPs, who are part of the Home Affairs Committee, were set to discuss the role social media plays in influencing hate crime.
Accounts and posts made by the group were deleted on Monday as part of the social media network’s updated policy to combat “hateful conduct and abuse” on the platform.
Britain First has been a staunch proponent of assimilation into Western society rather than the ‘multicultural’ position of having parallel identities. The progressive ideal of not having one unifying identity only ‘ghettoizes’ groups and will inevitably lead to conflict.
The problem is that promoting British identity is now viewed as ‘white supremacy’ and is therefore vilified.
On Monday, Twitter began enforcing new rules regarding individuals and groups that promote hateful and other abusive behaviour “on and off the platform”.
“Accounts that affiliate with organisations that use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes” will be in violation of the platform’s policies, Twitter said in a statement.
It said it was cracking down on “content that glorifies violence or the perpetrators of a violent act” and any account that “abuses or threatens others through their profile information”.

To be fair to Twitter, they’ve shut down hundreds of thousands of accounts of suspected terrorists.
Good on them for that.
The question is, what is considered ‘hateful’ and what isn’t.
If Britain First is inciting violence and fostering hate of Muslims that integrate into Britain, then that’s a problem.
If they’re calling out those that refuse to assimilate, push for the West to embrace Sharia, and are engaged in a ‘stealth jihad’ of the British empire, then yeah, they can do that as long as it’s not promoting violence.
Western values of freedom and equality matter.
I don’t care how many times Linda Sarsour says that women are ‘more free’ under Sharia, she’s always wrong.
ISIS. This radical terrorist organization is a virus… a worldwide plague. These a$$holes are willing to kill their own women and children to annihilate who they call “infidels.”
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. F**K ISIS.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
