When Twitter banned the New York Post one year ago, it was clear from the start that the decision was arbitrary, hypocritical — and political.
The Post asked our friends at Twitchy.com, a site dedicated to chronicling the worst of Twitter, to help collect some examples of things the service didn’t ban. Go after a Democratic politician and you’re flagged. But call for a Republican to die, and everything’s fine:
- An Oklahoma TV station and Rolling Stone falsely reported that hospitals were “overrun” with people overdosing on ivermectin. Turned out the story wasn’t true, and the one source made it up. Rachel Maddow of MSNBC still promotes it though:
- Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam gets to share conspiracies about Jews:
- Author and producer Reza Aslan wants an overthrow:
- Twitter used to add “context needed” and other tags to President Donald Trump’s tweets. Where’s the context for Biden’s lie that his legislative agenda is going to cost zero dollars? The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget estimates that the plans would add nearly $1 trillion to the debt over the next decade.
- Despite the Atlanta killer saying he was motivated by a twisted sex addiction, Meathead knows better — and whom to blame.
- And finally, Jen Psaki, who is still lying about us. The Hunter Biden laptop wasn’t Russian disinformation, never was, but Twitter is fine with the president’s spokesperson saying so.
