Twitter censorship of Conservatives is real, pervasive, and denied

Written By | Jan 5, 2018

LOS ANGELES, January 5, 2018: It is clear at the dawning of this New Year that Twitter and its intrepid brand of Twitter censorship is afflicted with severe liberal bias. They are completely out of control.

Liberal Social Media and Twitter Censorship

Facebook, Twitter, and Google are all run by politically liberal individuals determined to promote speech they agree with and suppress conservative speech. As private companies, these social media giants have every right to be ideologically bigoted.

If Mark Zuckerberg would come out and say, “conservatives need not apply,” he would be on solid legal ground.

In all truth, conservatives objecting to such an outcome should develop their own platforms and be the next Mark Zuckerberg.




The problem is these three companies deny their liberal bias. They emphatically reject the notion that they use their platforms to push an ideologically liberal agenda. They vehemently reject the notion that they suppress conservative speech.

The rebuttal to these arguments is simple. Tech CEOs proclaiming they are not ideologically driven, are lying.

Twitter Censorship is the worst offender

Among the three, Twitter is the worst of the offenders.

The uneven “hate speech” ban guidelines frequently lets liberals run wild with the hate speech of their choosing while causing censoring conservative accounts..

On the night of January 4th of 2018, two Tweets of mine resulted in Twitter censors blocking me for 12 hours. The countdown on the 12-hour ban would not begin until I deleted the two offending Tweets, which I still refuse to do.

This is the note from the Twitter Censorship department:

“Violating our rules against hateful conduct. You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”

Here was the first of my Tweets that fell afoul of Twitter’s liberal bias:

Liberal media bimbos desperate to overturn 2016 election. Spending days on childish #Bannon gossip. Ignoring life/death #Iran story @seanhannity @TuckerCarlson @donlemon @ChrisCuomo @andersoncooper @maddow @chrislhayes @Lawrence @HardballChris @MaddowBlog @OANN @FoxNews @nytimes

It is enraging that the liberal media keeps obsessing over comments Steve Bannon says about President Donald Trump while at the same time, Iranian protesters are fighting for their very lives and freedom. The liberal media is vapid and shallow. A bimbo is somebody vapid and shallow.

Referring to “liberal media bimbos” is not an attack on gender since the term is gender-neutral. In this Tweet, I do not even mention an actual person! I believe CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post are shallow, vapid bimbos.

People can disagree with that assessment, but surely it is not hate speech. Twitter censors understand none of this.

The second  Tweet  that fell afoul of Twitter’s liberal bias:

The second of my Tweets that offended the delicate sensibilities of the liberal snowflakes in charge of Twitter and its zealous Twitter censors came approximately twenty minutes later.

@SarahKSilverman @DebraMessing Anyone who says @Israel’s creation was because of the Holocaust is either an ignoramus, an anti-Semite, or a self-loathing Jew. Israel was created several thousand years ago, NOT in 1948. Can any Hollywood bimbos open a history book? So many (liberal) Jews stupid about their own!

9:45 PM – 4 Jan 2018

Proof social media is ideologically driven

Comedian Sarah Silverman recently Tweeted that the creation of Israel was due to the Holocaust genocide.

Debra Messing repeated that odious Tweet. For the uninformed, Israel’s history goes back several thousand years. Israel’s history predates  1948. Isreal is not a post-Holocaust haven for Jews.

Those who follow the news or history would know that Jews occupied Israel more than 2,700 years ago (Rare, 2,700-year-old clay seal discovered in Jerusalem).

Those who insist otherwise are trafficking in anti-Jewish, or hate, rhetoric.

Did israel not start as a haven for refugees of genocide? Not a good look. Also- US is a pretty rich country maybe we can take some oh right our govt. I guess, all around, it’s the govt who are soulless not the people* https://t.co/VLg7PbU9M1

The fact that Messing and Silverman are Jewish themselves is irrelevant. They are leftist Jews who frequently preach views that are anathema to Jews who possess a healthy respect for Judaism and Israel. Not only are these leftist Jewish Tweets hate speech, they are historically inaccurate, which may be more damaging in the long run.

Go ahead and block me if you don’t agree with me

Now if Silverman or Messing want to block me on Twitter, fine. I have been blocked by Rosie O’Donnell and somehow managed to survive. I have blocked plenty of people myself. However, having Twitter Censorship itself block me is intolerable. Nothing in my comment was hate speech. In fact, I could argue that the real hate speech came in the form of the blood libel spouted by Silverman and retweeted by Messing.

I could request that Twitter block them, but true conservatives want more free speech for everyone, even liberals that are completely ignorant of history.

When is a Bimbo not a Bimbette?

Again, I referred to “Hollywood bimbos,” but I did not mention anyone by name. Even if I did, the fact that Messing and Silverman are female is irrelevant to me. My issue is with their ideology and spreading of nonsense, not whether they use the restroom standing up or sitting down.

Bimbo, which describes an attractive, but unintelligent female, is a term that early as 1919 meant an “unintelligent or brutish male.”  Again, a little knowledge by those Twitter censorship overlords would know that “being a bimbo” is not a gender thing.

There is plenty of ‘bimboism’  going around in both the X and Y chromosomes.

This is where liberals will make the shallow argument that a person could think I was attacking the female gender. This argument is valid if one believes the Thought Police are infallible. Unless the Twitter censors planted a chip in my anus they would have no idea what I was thinking. As a wordsmith, my knowledge of the English language predates the birth of today’s millennials.

What I have in my defense is what Twitter does not cite in its accusation: Proof.

Every year in late December I put out a column called “The Top 10 Bimbos.” It is dedicated to Katy Perry and Barack Obama. President Obama may be an emasculated metrosexual beta male, but he is not female. He is, in my less than humble opinion, a shallow, vapid individual who spouts nonsense. He is a bimbo.


Barack Obama-Katy Perry Awards: The Top 10 Bimbos of 2017


Twitter insists that referring to Hollywood celebrities and liberal media entities as “bimbos” is hate speech. But they are wrong. They could not be more wrong if they tried.

The rampant disease of liberalism and TDS

Twitter and other social media giants all suffer from the disease of liberalism. The only cure is for them to hire more conservatives. The problem is, these entities obsess over every kind of diversity except for diversity of thought.

Twitter is run by liberals with as much ideological diversity as a Wellesley sorority house. Their hostility toward conservatives in the name of protecting people from hate speech only leads to censorship, the exact opposite of what Twitter insists its mission is.

Twitter’s Thought Police have labeled me falsely as a purveyor of hate speech.  I did not engage in hate speech.

Twitter needs to reassess their policies of Twitter censorship. The unevenly enforced Twitter ban on “hate speech” frequently lets liberals run wild while conservative accounts are shuttered.

Otherwise, social media, particularly Twitter, needs to declare itself a sanctuary state for liberal bigots who are intolerant of conservative views.
