I started tweeting in 2009 (OMG Iâm getting so old).
And absolutely HATED it.
Like seriously thought it was the worst.
So I deserted my little account, which was @GOPBunny at the time, and scurried back to Facebook where I could at least understand what the heck people were writing. Not to mention who did Twitter think it WAS giving ME a character limit? Suppose you could say I have always been a bit high-maintenance when it comes to social media (and most things in general).
I own it.
But I digress.
Welp, in March 2013, I was âjailedâ for 30 days on Facebook after debating/fighting with some patchouli-smelling, blue-fisted, chest-thumping Scott Walker hater, so I wandered back over to Twitter and the rest, as they say, is history. I wound up changing my name to @PolitiBunny (the GOP eventually ticked me off over Obamacare â see, high maintenance) and getting suspended more times than I can honestly remember. Sure, some of those suspensions I earned (Iâm not exactly known for being all rainbows and butterflies), but most of them were due to an obnoxious and unfair bias Twitter SWEARS up and down does not exist.
But it does.
And that bias has only gotten worse, especially with President Silver Alert in the White House.
You may be asking yourself, âSelf, why is this crazy woman who thinks sheâs a rabbit babbling about getting suspended on Twitter for being a conservative?â but I do actually have a point to make here. Itâs not just accounts like mine that have been targeted because of a bias. Right-leaning news outlets across the board (like Twitchy) are being flagged, throttled, and in some cases outright censored because Big Tech is no fan of conservatives. Guess that whole liberty, justice, and freedom thing is just not for them.
Well, that and leftists have a tendency to throw temper tantrums and try to shut us down anyway. Iâve lost count of the number of blue checks who have threatened me personally for daring to write about their stupid tweets or talked about going after our advertisers because they hate being mocked by their own words.
Put them all together and itâs not exactly a great environment for anyone who tells the truth and believes in conservatism.
Which is the main reason whyÂ Twitchy VIP (and all Townhall properties) is so important. And so awesome. With your support, we donât have to worry about some angry cat-hoarder in Vermont who hasnât shaved her legs since Clinton was in office trying to boycott our advertisers because I made a joke about cat hoarders. With your support, we can keep challenging the Leftâs narrative without being afraid some tech giant (ahem, looking at you Google) will throttle and accuse us of clickbait. With your support, we can promote conservatism while giving you something to laugh about (and giving the Left something to cry about).
With your support, there isnât much we canât do âŚ except ride a bike. Or ice skate. Or juggle. Or make Chicken Teriyaki. Or roll my Rs. Or crochet more than a blanket.
Dang, there are a lot of things I canât do âŚÂ
So pretty please, with sugar, hot fudge, sprinkles, marshmallow fluff, and nuts on top, consider being aÂ VIP member. Youâll not only get some pretty awesome content (above and beyond what youâre already getting now), but youâll become a real part of our movement. As a member youâll have access to specialized content, the editors (I know, you all wanna talk about chainsaws with me), youâll even be able to help drive some of the stories we write ALL while helping us give the finger to progressive efforts to silence and shut us down. OH, and the best part is, if you sign up THIS WEEK youâll get 40% off âŚ RIGHT?! How can you NOT sign up? Use promo code 2022 at checkout.
Itâs a win-win.
So do it. What are you waiting for?Â Join me and the Twitchy crew with Twitchy VIP.
