Sad! Trump's Nazi And Alt-Right Twitter Buddies Getting Banned

Sad!  Trump's Nazi And Alt-Right Twitter Buddies Getting Banned

This is not a trampling of anyone's First Amendment rights. This is a very late attempt to tackle "hateful and abusive content" on Twitter. You don't have a constitutional right to advocate violence against a group or ethnicity. Suck it, Nazis.

Little Green Footballs:

Today is the day when Twitter said they’d begin enforcing new policies designed to shut down users connected to white supremacist and Nazi organizations (and presumably other types of hate groups as well). A quick look around some of the worst corners of Twitter shows that they’re beginning to make good on this promise.

Already suspended: American Renaissance, Occidental Dissent, and the Traditional Worker Party — all white supremacist groups.

And interestingly, Twitter has also suspended the account of @JaydaBF, one of the leaders of the far right hate group Britain First, whose vile propaganda videos were recently retweeted by the malevolent toad in the White House.

The sad part for Trump is that apart from fake accounts and Russian bots, the neo-Nazi contingent were the best Twitter friends he has. SAD!

Ed. Note: I would argue that if Twitter is REALLY interested in banning Nazis, they'd get rid of some of the advisors closest to Trump: Bannon, Trump Junior, Stephen Miller, and more. But this is at least a small start. - Karoli
