The wave of alarming attacks on free speech in late stage in late stage Obamastan have claimed another victim. Breitbart’s tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been permanently exiled by Twitter for tweets deemed to be incompatible with the star chamber of those pushing a crushing forced diversity that stifles offending voices. The ban came after complaints from Leslie Jones who is one of the main characters in the feminist reboot of the 1980’s classic “Ghostbusters” who whined publicly over unflattering tweets deemed by some to be racist and sexist.
According to the Hill “Twitter permanently bans right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos”:
Twitter on Tuesday night permanently banned conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos from using its service.
Yiannopoulos, the tech editor for right-wing side Breitbart.com, is known for making provocative statements. The suspension comes after years of complaints that Yiannopoulos used his account to egg on his hundreds of thousands of followers.
He is said to have sparked a wave of racist and sexist harassment against “Ghostbusters” star Leslie Jones that ended with Jones saying in the early hours of Tuesday morning she was leaving Twitter. BuzzFeed reported that the incident had led to Yiannopoulos — who used the handle @nero — being banned for life.
Yiannopoulos, when asked about his tweets about Jones, mocked her in comments to his employer.
A Twitter spokesperson did not respond to a question about what policy violation specifically led to Yiannopoulos’s suspension.
Mr. Yiannopoulos has become something of a conservative hero for his geuerilla efforts in the war against the hyper-sensitive, lily-livered, easily-offended types who would seek to carve out safe zones and use the powers of the government to immunize themselves as being offended. This has earned the man the fury of the establishment left which has clearly singled out the man because he is gay and it doesn’t mesh with the Democratic party meme of conservative persecution of all homosexuals. Twitter will continue to enable the cop haters, black racists and Muslim extremists though because by banning Yiannopoulos they are really seeking to make a political statement.
Breitbart gives an account that is less drenched in liberal bias in the story “Milo Suspended Permanently by Twitter Minutes Before ‘Gays For Trump’ Party At RNC”:
Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been suspended from Twitter once more just 20 minutes before his “Gays for Trump” event takes place at the Republican National Convention.
The justification for the suspension is currently unknown, although it could be as a result of Milo’s run-in with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones on the site. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly reached out to Jones late on Monday evening after she complained about “abuse” on the platform. Milo was suspended despite the fact that he sent no abusive tweets to the actress.
BuzzFeed gleefully reported that the suspension is permanent, citing a statement from Twitter promising a clampdown on “targeted abuse.” Milo has also received a message from Twitter confirming that that his ban is permanent, copied below.
The statement also promises to tackle “hateful” conduct, in the wake of widespread media condemnation of racist tweets sent to Leslie Jones. However, it remains to be seen whether Twitter will take any action against Jones’ own racially hateful tweets, seen below and archived here.
In a comment, Milo 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.”
With Facebook already having exposed for censoring posts by conservatives it’s looking like Silicon Valley has Hillary’s back. Milo is lucky that we live in relatively civilized times, long ago engaging in such vile blasphemy would have one’s tongue ripped out with fire-heated iron tongs.
