Fox Yakkers Complain That New Twitter Rules Will Target Conservatives

But, but why aren't Liberals targeted for hate speech tweets? I think we all know why.

There's some outrage brewing in the #tcot (top conservative on twitter) world. In mid-December, Twitter announced some rule changes regarding hate speech, as has Google and Facebook, based on the increase in anti-immigrant comments from disgruntled Germans. And the Conservative world is not happy, as many of their accounts are based entirely on being hateful.

Substitute host Molly Line and National Review writer/guest, Katherine Timpf were both donning matching blue dresses with hemlines that might perk up some of the Ailes' demographic that watches Fox 'News' with the sound turned down. Not sure if that was relevant, but it was hard to miss.

Timpf, who works for Bloody Bill Kristol, was delighting in all the hateful comments she receives on Twitter, and brags how she's 'threatened all the time.' Tucker Carlson commiserated the same thing, and claimed he too is threatened and would never imagine silencing those people. They flashed some of the suspended Twitter accounts, that are strangely right-wing.

I don't think they even realize how hateful they are. Or, they are so delighted by their own hate, they think every other person who may be offended should just lighten up.

Can you help us out?
