Go on, tell us some more how there’s ‘no political bias’ in Social media.
What does it take to get yourself a permanent ban from Twitter, these days?
Even though he is openly antisemetic, and has made public calls for violence that even Snopes could’t bring themselves to sweep under the rug, Twitter still has an account for this guy:
They ‘punished’ him by stripping him of that blue checkmark, but he’s still got a presence on Twitter.
In fact, Rep Lee Zeldin saved this humble scribbler the trouble of building a list of similar inconsistencies by tweeting the following:
Hamas Twitter acct still active->TERRORIST ORG
Muslim Brotherhood Twitter acct still active->TERRORIST ORG
Louis Farrakhan Twitter acct still active->BIGGEST ANTI-SEMITE IN US
Conservative Jewish activist David Horowitz Twitter acct has been suspended.

Meanwhile, who has had their account axed? (Besides, of course, the super-dangerous @Jameswoods?)
An AOC parody account. A perfectly-compliant parody account that had “parody” right in the name of both the Twitter handle AND listed in the bio. But it’s been axed anyway.
Conservative and right-wing Twitter users pointed out the account, which had tens of thousands of followers and was marked “parody,” was suspended late Monday evening. An email from Twitter to the man believed to be running the account, Michael Morrison, said it was “permanently suspended” for being too similar to Ocasio-Cortez’s account.
“You may not register or create fake and misleading accounts. While you may use Twitter pseudonymously or as a parody, commentary, or fan account, you may not use misleading account information in order to engage in spamming, abusive, or disruptive behavior including attempts to manipulate the conversations on Twitter,” said the email, which was shared on Twitter. “You also may not ‘post duplicative or substantially similar content, replies, or mentions over multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account, or create duplicate or substantially similar accounts.’ This account will not be reinstated,”

.@OfficeOfMike has confirmed to me that he has been PERMANENTLY suspended from Twitter.
He also ran the @AOCpress account which is also permanently suspended.

As noted above, David Horowitz was also suspended — but later restored after significant public pushback. What else have they banned? This:

How many data points does it take to draw a trend, anyway? Our own BigDawg Doug Giles weighed in, riffing off of Raheem Kassam’s comments:

@raheemkassam is spot on with this. On Oct.11th Facebook banned my ClashDaily page with 2M followers because we spread ‘fake news’ and have ‘fake accounts’. Of the 50k+ posts we have on Clash, I think we got our facts wrong on 4 which were corrected when we got clarification. Regarding our ‘fake accounts’ I was blue check verified, all our admin peeps had to submit their drivers licenses and had to a double login with a six digit code that Facebook texted to us. The real reason we were deplatformed was because we, successfully, blasted liberal non-sense with facts and an irreverent sense of humor of which garnered us 100s of Millions pageviews. And that my friends is the TRUTH. #maga
And Doug just happens to be spot on.
It’s not as though the Left didn’t tell us they were going to try to leverage Silicon Valley to tilt elections and force their dystopian nightmares down America’s collective throat. They were upfront about both their goals of cultural conquest:
AND they were also shockingly open about how they planned to go about it.
They even wrote a manual that they called a ‘War Plan’. How ‘cute’.
Maybe it’s time we take those threats seriously. If ‘Russian’ interference is ‘problematic’, what should we think of a group of censorship-happy autocrats who have openly stated their private vision of America’s future can and should supersede that of the US electorate?
(And let’s not forget that Twitter, for example, has a Saudi Prince as the largest single shareholder, with even more shares than ‘@Jack’.)
And who are they protecting from criticism? Occasional-Cortex. If anyone out there is crying out for a parody account, it’s her. Why are they so keen on shielding her from mockery? Probably because mockery works.
You can see it in her eyes, she’s got big plans for America. Big, psychotic plans.
Plans for putting a stake through the heart of industry, in the name of Democratic Socialism. Plans for dismantling ICE and letting illegals stream over our borders. Plans for outlawing cars, and our burgers. Because otherwise, the world will end in 12 years. And you’d better do it, or else, because she’ll tell ya “I’m The Boss!”
She’s not exactly ‘shelf stable’, but she IS an elected representative. She’s Alexandria Occasio-Cortez: The American Psycho!
