Twitter Suspends Katie Hopkins

 

Twitter has suspended UK’s courageous freedom fighter Katie Hopkins, who had a million followers on the platform, and one thing is certain: she will not be the last foe of jihad violence and Sharia oppression who is banned from Twitter. It’s all about silencing “hate,” you see. But the banning of Katie Hopkins illustrates yet again that for the Left, there is good “hate” and there is bad “hate.”

According to the UK’s Independent, “Twitter said that Ms Hopkins had been temporarily locked out of her account for violating the site’s hateful-conduct policy, which bans the promotion of violence or inciting harm on the basis of race, religion, national origin or gender identity.”

Twitter has erased all but a handful of Hopkins’ tweets, so it’s impossible to tell what the offending tweets were, but it is abundantly clear at this point that for Leftist guardians of acceptable thought nowadays, virtually any dissent from the Left’s agenda will be read as “the promotion of violence or inciting harm on the basis of race, religion, national origin or gender identity.” While “promotion of violence” is fairly easy to spot, “inciting harm” can be seen in any critical word. And then the offender has to go.

The crusaders against “hate” in this case were once again the usual suspects. According to the Independent, Twitter suspended Hopkins at the insistence of a Leftist/Islamic coalition of enemies of the freedom of speech: “The move came a little over a day after Rachel Riley, a co-presenter of Channel 4’s Countdown and an anti-racism campaigner, met Twitter representatives calling for them to review and remove Ms Hopkins’ account. The meeting was organised by the Centre for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) campaign group, which called for Twitter to permanently delete the account.”

CCDH’s chief executive, Imran Ahmed, commented in the condescending tones of a man who knows the world is at his feet: “We are pleased that preliminary action appears to have been taken by Twitter against the identity-based hate actor, Katie Hopkins following productive discussions with Twitter’s UK office. There is a long road ahead before social media is made safe for dialogue, information exchange and the formation and maintenance of relationships.”

However, “a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds,” said Ralph Waldo Emerson, and even though he is that most useless and contemptible of creatures, a dead white male, Twitter agrees with him. Rachel Riley was pleased at the forcible silencing of Hopkins, but noted that Twitter had not done her bidding to her complete satisfaction. The Independent continued: “Ms Riley said she was ‘pleased to see that action appears to have been taken’, but added that she had also called for the removal of George Galloway’s account, which remains online.”

It isn’t hard to see why this is so. Galloway, unlike Hopkins, is a fervent Leftist. According to Discover the Networks, Galloway is an “admirer of Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Mao Zedong, and Joseph Stalin.” He is also the founder of Viva Palestina, touted as “a fundraising project for the Palestinian people,” which “since its inception…has given millions of dollars, as well as much non-cash assistance, directly to Hamas.”

So it is clear. Twitter claims to be against “hateful conduct,” but it really only hates some hateful conduct, not all of it. Katie Hopkins opposing jihad violence and Sharia oppression? Why, that’s hateful conduct! She must be banned! George Galloway aiding a jihad terror group that targets Israeli civilians and celebrates when those civilians are murdered? Why, that isn’t hateful conduct, not at all, at least according to Twitter’s guardians of acceptable opinion. As far as Twitter is concerned also, hating Katie Hopkins, and showering her with abuse, is perfectly fine – I’ve witnessed it myself many times on that platform. But if someone uttered a cross word to George Galloway, it is certain that he or she would soon be free of the burden of limiting one’s utterances to 280 characters.

That is the lesson of the Twitter suspension of Katie Hopkins. If you also hold opinions that are unacceptable to the elites, you’re next. Twitter won’t tolerate “hate,” you see, which means it won’t allow anything but statements aligned with the views of the Leftist political and media elites. Inside every progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out, and at Twitter, it does look as if they’ve already slipped their chain.

  1. I hope Katie Hopkins can find another way, and I think others will also.
    A million others will see that censorship and learn about the pressures of the woke controlling advocate activists.
    A bit difficult to replace that broad contact, but market demand, will create a supplier through “Samizdat” systems. 🙂 and even more determination to persevere. 🙂

    Shows many forms of attack, like demoninitizing, paypal bans etc..
    Some examples of the reach & deviousness used by the woke media.
    Surprisingly even Mark Zuckerberg of facebook in part seems to think censureship has gone too far.

    I do notice that some on the Utube system slide around by having other accounts and others copying and re releasing videos, like Black Pigeon also being Felix Rex.
    Also going to Bitchute, but as mentioned, other pressures done on Bitchute like Paypal resistance.

  2. This is getting very bad.
    I can hardly imagine Katie Hopkins inciting violence. She has too much intelligence and class for that
    Defending her country – yes!
    Not wanting to be invaded by an alien culture – yes.
    I do hope that some new platform appears that is free of all this censorship!

  3. Twitter and similar braindead leftist platforms would be right at home in Nazi Germany.

    Henry Ford used to say of his cars “you can have any colour you want, as long as it’s black.”
    Nowadays, we can say of shitholes like Twitter “you can say anything you want, as long as it’s leftist bullshit.”

  4. ACT has a very cogent argument against this type of law.

    You can defend yourself against a charge of theft as there is factual evidence that you have stolen or not stolen something.
    You cannot defend yourself against a charge of hate speech as it is a subjective viewpoint; it is not factual.

    Now yes, the government can write a law that codifies that subjective viewpoint into law. But challenge yourself to sit down and write it. How many loopholes are there? How many exceptions would you need to create to have an effective, clear law?

  5. A very good reason to vote Act. I believe in absolute freedom of speech. ( I seldom practise it though, as where I work, i would be hounded out, tarred and feathered. ) Maybe that makes me a coward, but I need to survive.
