Twitter Duplicitous After Children of NRA’s Dana Loesch Threatened

Social media site has no problem with accounts that suggest violence against conservatives and their families…

(Ben Sellers, Liberty Headlines) It seems like only yesterday that Twitter and other social media sites took to their respective soapboxes about the imperative to balance community standards with the fundamental principles of free speech on their platforms.

But as National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana Loesch recently discovered, policing those ‘community standards’ is a one-way street.

The admittedly leftist shills of Silicon Valley reached their red line when right-wing broadcast personality Alex Jones, responding to the threat of censorship, told listeners to take up their “battle rifles.”

Twitter suspended Jones for two weeks for inciting violence, while sites like Apple and Youtube already had proceeded to delete his content over Jones’ since retracted statements that the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre was a false flag spearheaded by gun-control advocates.

Though the sites held forth that Jones’ ideas were justifiable censorship, Loesch found that actionable threats are not always covered, provided they support the left’s agenda.

Loesch posted on her Twitter Sunday a pair of screenshots: one showing a user named @MilanLegius who appears to be threatening the murder of Loesch’s children, and the other showing a reply from Twitter Support indicating that there was no violation of the platform’s rules.

After 12,000 retweets, 20,000 likes and 2,700 comments, Twitter finally responded by reviewing the complaint, and was conveniently able to find the issue.

It wasn’t the first case of hypocrisy by any stretch in the left’s lopsided crusade against violence.

While arguing the immorality of President Donald Trump’s executive action to suspend the “catch and release” policy and allow illegal immigrant families to be housed in separate detainment facilities at the border, “Easy Rider” star Peter Fonda escalated the debate several levels by suggesting that a mob “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.”

Fonda later apologized for the rant.

However, at press time, his verified account @iamfonda was active and contained multiple instances of profanity directed at Trump and his supporters.
