Pauline Hanson suspended from Twitter over cattle prod comment

One Nation senator Pauline Hanson is ropeable over Twitter’s decision to suspend her account, after she suggested police could use electric cattle prods to move on vegan activists.

In a media release on Thursday, Hanson accused Twitter of being a bully and a hypocrite over a video she posted on the social media platform on Sunday, shot in Teebar, Queensland

Hanson was campaigning against a series of protests by animal activists that have disrupted businesses and traffic in Brisbane over the past several months.

“When the farmers have trouble getting the cattle up off the floor of the trucks, or in the cattle yards, they just touch them with this and they’ll soon move,” Hanson says in the video, brandishing a cattle prod.

“It doesn’t matter how big the beasts are, they will move with this.

“Well, recently, we’ve had all the protesters in Brisbane, lying on the streets, glueing themselves (to the road).

“You know what I reckon the solution. Let’s use one of these on them. I think they’ll soon move. “

Issue of free speech

The media release said Twitter deemed her link to the cattle prod video was in breach of a rule that says users “may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so”.

“We consider abusive behaviour an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice.”

But Hanson accused Twitter of double standards, arguing her account suspension was the result of leftist bullying that sought to curtail her freedom of speech.

  1. I’m not a twit and I don’t use faceplant, so I’m largely unaffected by their clampdowns on freedom of speech; but all the same I wonder if there are any viable alternatives developing to these two platforms?

    Also I’m rather concerned about the blogosphere. How long will it be before the black helicopters come swooping down on blogs like this?

    Any comments or reassurances from readers here in the know about such things?
