Is it just us, or has Twitter been banning a lot of people lately? It was just a couple of weeks ago that Bruce Carroll, aka @GayPatriot, was banned for calling convicted traitor Chelsea Manning “Bradley” — or maybe just for calling Manning a traitor; Twitter wasn’t specific in its ban notice.
As long as someone at Twitter Support has his finger on the ban button, we’d refer him to Louis Farrakhan’s feed, where yesterday he posted a speech from May in which he “thoroughly and completely unmask[s] the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan.”
Thoroughly and completely unmasking the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan.

Frankly, we usually think that more speech is better speech, but if Twitter is going to try to eliminate “hate speech” from its platform, this would be a good place to start.
Hey @TwitterSupport, Can I negatively and hatefully talk about Jews, get verified and stay on Twitter? Farrakhan is my role model & it works for him so I figured I’d ask..@DLoesch https://t.co/A27GLWypkG

Hi @jack. Pretty sure this directs hate towards a group of people.
Why is this anti-semitic bigot verified and able to post such anti-semitic bigotry sans consequences?@TwitterSafety https://t.co/4YM48kR935

AYFKM? This is totally cool on your platform, but a conservative makes so much as a fart joke and they get suspended? Your hypocrisy is the stuff of legends. https://t.co/tcyHaqD7T9

This turd draws thousands to his sermons, has nearly half a million Twitter followers, and is supported by board members of the @womensmarch such as @TamikaDMallory and @lsarsour.
Is this what progressive looks like?#Antisemitism #Farrakhan https://t.co/RNbemKYQy5

There are at least 8 Democrat politicians with ties to this scumbag as well as three Women's March leaders, and of course the media is largely silent https://t.co/rG8ihst7Ih

A reminder that Amazon Smile kicked Alliance Defending Freedom (the group that just litigated Masterpiece Cake Shop) out of the program, but it still lets Nation of Islam-affiliated charities participate. https://t.co/vXBsYC2bsr

You would think this week would have provided some feedback from above as to Farrakhan's actions, but nope. https://t.co/hJloIG7q4M

Members of Congress meet with this person and some even act offended when journalists ask about it. https://t.co/xcL5U46vln
