Twitter Removes Tweet Wishing for Dana Loesch's Kids to Die After Backlash
Everyone knows the Twittersphere, like pretty much every other social media platform, is a leftist crapshoot. Though, the extent of their leftiness is sometimes hard to decipher. Not in this case. An anti-gun butt-dumpling thought it wise to wish death upon Dana Loesch's kiddos.
Apparently wishing the murder of a conservative woman’s children doesn’t violate @Jack @twitter @TwitterSupport ter… https://t.co/SeuBlmXeiB— Chris Loesch (@Chris Loesch)1535335276.0
Twitter reversed course Monday and suspended a Twitter account that said National Rifle Association (NRA) spokeswoman Dana Loesch “has to have her children murdered.”
“The only way these people learn is if it affects them directly,” Twitter user Milan Legius wrote in a reply to Loesch on Sunday. “So if Dana Loesch has to have her children murdered before she’ll understand, I guess that’s what needs to happen.”
Twitter initially ruled on Sunday that after “carefully” reviewing the reported tweet, that it had “no violation of the Twitter Rules against abusive behavior.”
Following news coverage from media outlets, Twitter “re-reviewed” the report on Monday and changed its ruling.
Allow me to paraphrase Twitter's logic. "You know, the first time we saw the tweet about kiddie-killing, we saw no violations. Upon
getting our asses chewed giving it a second look, it's now clear the tweet wishing for the murder of kids was wishing for the murder of kids."
Just to be clear, I'm not saying I'm in favor of censorship here. Though, if Twitter is going to have community guidelines, it helps to enforce them. Not just when the Twitterer in question is of an "unacceptable" political persuasion.
It's funny how if a conservative shares their opinion, Twitter puts boot to ass lightning fast. Like Amy Schumer to Baskin Robbins on buy-one-get-one day. Yet, when an anti-gun douchetastic dunce wishes for kiddies to get shot, it requires multiple evaluations and an outrage mob before Twitter does anything about it.
We've had experience in this matter ourselves:
