So, here’s another clear example of the Left’s deep hatred for anything Republican. But, instead of commenting on Trump’s positions or background, Maher decides to go after Donald Trump’s sons, Donald Jr. and Eric. Maher dips down into the gutter in a vile rant about their looks of all things. What is amazing is how Maher can go on this mindless, vulgar tirade targeting the family of a Presidential candidate without consequence from the Twitter gods. But, let Milo Yiannopoulos compare a black, female GhostBusters actress to a man and say she is “barely literate”, then Twitter bans him for targeted abuse. Really?
Maher’s tweets were listed at NewsBusters:
HBO star Bill Maher is unleashing his usual sleazy insults on Twitter during the Republican convention, and the targets this time are Trump’s sons Donald Jr. and Eric, that they “look like the date rapist in every after school special ever.”
Doesn’t this read like restroom graffiti? Maher at least had the the decency to only mock two sons…somehow 10-year-old Barron escaped the tweets.
This is easy work for Maher, who has no wife or children to mock. Maher also couldn’t resist mocking daughter Tiffany Trump’s speech praising her dad’s love and support. But what’s with the misspelling? The man who loves mocking ignorant right-wingers can’t spell “lying”?
This probably shouldn’t be surprising for Maher, whose Twitter hashtag for Donald Trump is “#WhinyLittleBitch”. He also tweeted, hey, he’ll be bringing this comedy gold to Las Vegas this weekend, so if you’re into left-wing vulgarians, what a treat.
So, how is this not “targeted abuse”? No doubt Milo’s responses were biting insults but he wasn’t in league with the true racists that attacked Ms. Jones. But, Milo is a conservative provocateur that Twitter was waiting for a reason to ban. But, more importantly, this is yet another example of how deep the Left’s hate goes. Since Maher has no better argument, he is forced, like every other liberal, change the conversation through vulgar attacks in a pathetic display of unearned moral authority.
The hypocrisy is that Hillary Clinton, as their candidate, is the most corrupt individual to run for the Presidency. EVER. Amazingly, the Left, including Maher, will defend Hillary and justify her actions at all costs. However, we don’t have to stoop to talking about her looks, or Bill’s or Chelsea’s to attack Hillary. We just have to look at recent history and the facts to know that Maher’s last tweet shows even he knows the truth: Hillary is a liar and should be in prison.
Milo, on the other hand, got banned within hours of holding a gay conservative event in Cleveland. Twitter, like Maher, attached Milo’s intelligent yet biting tweets to a group of real racists to justify their actions.
Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been suspended from Twitter once more just 20 minutes before his “Gays for Trump” event takes place at the Republican National Convention.
The justification for the suspension is currently unknown, although it could be as a result of Milo’s run-in with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones on the site. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly reached out to Jones late on Monday evening after she complained about “abuse” on the platform. Milo was suspended despite the fact that he sent no abusive tweets to the actress.
BuzzFeed gleefully reported that the suspension is permanent, citing a statement from Twitter promising a clampdown on “targeted abuse.” Milo has also received a message from Twitter confirming that that his ban is permanent, copied below.
The statement also promises to tackle “hateful” conduct, in the wake of widespread media condemnation of racist tweets sent to Leslie Jones. However, it remains to be seen whether Twitter will take any action against Jones’ own racially hateful tweets, seen below and archived here.
In a comment, Milo said “With the cowardly suspension of my account, Twitter has confirmed itself as a safe space for Muslim terrorists and Black Lives Matter extremists, but a no-go zone for conservatives.”
“Twitter is holding me responsible for the actions of fans and trolls using the special pretzel logic of the left. Where are the Twitter police when Justin Bieber’s fans cut themselves on his behalf?”
“Like all acts of the totalitarian regressive left, this will blow up in their faces, netting me more adoring fans. We’re winning the culture war, and Twitter just shot themselves in the foot.”
“This is the end for Twitter. Anyone who cares about free speech has been sent a clear message: you’re not welcome on Twitter.”
Twitter, a company in dire financial trouble, has developed a reputation for draconian, onesided and often-unexplained suspensions of conservative users.
Meanwhile, the platform has demonstrated an unashamed bias towards progressive causes like Black Lives Matter, ignoring open calls for violence against police officers that emerged following both the Dallas and Baton Rouge shootings.
In further indication of its political biases, Twitter also let death threats against Republican Senators remain on the platform for months without taking action.
Previous attempts to punish Milo have generated huge backlashes from conservative users, and this one – Twitter’s most severe clampdown on the Breitbart senior editor so far – may generate the biggest yet.
Reaction on Twitter has been explosive from the hundreds of thousands of Milo’s fans and Twitter’s stock numbers continue to drop. And, as also noted by Breitbart, Milo may still have his revenge:
#FreeMilo is currently trending in the United States, at number 6 and rising rapidly.
