STOP THE BIAS: Political commentator Jacob Wohl becomes latest casualty in Twitter’s war on conservatives

SAN FRANCISCO — Jacob Wohl became the latest conservative to be banned by Twitter Tuesday after the social media giant suspended his account, claiming the 21-year-old had violated it’s platform’s rules.

Wohl, an outspoken supporter of Israel and President Donald Trump, had garnered more than 180,000 followers prior to his ban.

“The account was suspended for multiple violations of the Twitter Rules,” a Twitter spokesperson said Tuesday, “specifically creating and operating fake accounts.”

Wohl denied those allegations when reached by USA Today for comment on Tuesday.

“I’ve had accounts for my businesses and my future think tank but that’s about it,” Wohl said, adding that all of those accounts had been “nuked” as a result of his suspension. “I’ve not created fake accounts or bot armies or anything like that.”

Wohl is just the latest in a series of conservative commentators and outspoken Trump supporters to be banned by Twitter.

In late 2018 Twitter permanently suspended the account of Laura Loomer, another outspoken supporter of Israel and Trump.

Loomer, who had amassed more than 260,000 followers on the social-media platform prior to her suspension, was banned for “violating Twitter rules against hateful conduct” after she sent a tweet criticizing Minnesota Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for her Muslim faith.

In the tweet in question, Loomer called Omar “anti-Jewish” and called the Muslim religion one in which “homosexuals are oppressed” and “women are abused” and “forced to wear the hijab.”

“I’ve been silenced in America,” Loomer said in a video posted to YouTube in response to her Twitter ban. “Everything I said is 100 percent true and factual. It’s not malicious, it’s not mean, it’s not hateful.”

In 2018 Twitter was also one of several major social media networks to suspend Alex Jones from their platform.

Jones’ suspension came one day after the Texas-based talk show host tweeted a video of himself confronting a CNN reporter and accusing him of censorship.

In a statement posted to its website, Twitter claimed Jones’ actions violated its platform’s rules against “abusive behavior.”

LOOMER: Twitter Bans Breck Worsham On Christmas Eve For Criticism of Pedophilia

In yet another act of anti-Conservative bias by Twitter, Breck Worsham, a popular Conservative woman with nearly 83,000 Twitter followers has been permanently suspended by Twitter.

Worsham’s account was banned on Christmas Eve after she posted tweets critical of pedophiles and Twitter’s decision to allow for pro-pedophile accounts to still remain active while deeming Conservative accounts to be “violations of terms of service”.

On Christmas Eve, Worsham received the following email from Twitter informing her that her anti-pedophile tweet “violates rules against hateful conduct”.

“Kill ’em all…Let God sort ’em out…”

Worsham said her tweet was in direct reference to violent pedophiles.

While Twitter claims it is a violation of their terms of service to call for people who rape children to be killed, it is worth noting that Twitter doesn’t consider assassination threats against President Donald Trump or genocidal calls to murder the Jews and white people as violations of their terms of service.

Worsham released a statement on her Instagram about her ban:
“I was notified this morning, December 24, 2018, that Twitter had suspended my account on the grounds of “hate speech” because I spoke out against pro-pedophile accounts on the platform and called for the death penalty to pedophiles.
Bans are nothing new to me, as I have been here many times before. What is troubling, however, is the ongoing war on Conservatives and those who seek to shine light upon the truth.
I’m not the first account to be banned for telling the truth, and I certainly will not be the last. Laura Loomer was famously banned from most social media platforms just this past Thanksgiving for doing no more than that.”

Like me, Worsham was also banned from Twitter during a holiday, which poses the question: Is big tech banning large and popular Conservative accounts on holidays to draw attention away from their silencing of Conservatives?

While Worsham, who is pro-Trump, has been banned for criticizing pedophilia, it is worth noting that Twitter has not banned famous left wing celebrities who have themselves been accused or charged with pedophilia, and even encouraged acts of pedophilia against small children.

Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey have both been accused of sexually assaulting minors, yet both of them still have verified Twitter accounts and access to Twitter, despite Twitter’s claim that verification and access to Twitter would also depend on users’ “off platform behavior”.

In June of 2018, Peter Fonda, a left wing actor, tweeted, in reference to Donald Trump’s 12-year-old son:

‘A NEW LOW’: Twitter faces backlash after banning conservative Iraq War veteran Jesse Kelly

SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faced a wave of backlash on Monday after it was revealed that the social media giant had banned conservative pundit and Iraq war veteran Jesse Kelly.

Kelly, a former Marine who ran for Congress in Arizona in 2010 and 2012, is the host of a nationally syndicated conservative talk radio program based out of Houston.

The news sparked a wave of anger from fellow conservatives who viewed the ban as yet another attack on the right.

“@JesseKellyDC just shared this with me,” tweeted combat vet and author Sean Parnell. “He’s permanently banned with no explanation. He broke no rules. This madness has to stop.”

“Jesse Kelly just showed me the final verdict: Twitter has permanently banned him.
His account is gone and will not be restored, according to Twitter support,” tweeted conservative broadcaster Buck Sexton. “No warnings, no appeals. They’ve ghosted him.”

“The ppl who decided to ban Jesse Kelly and the ppl who are cheering his ban are not only unfair, tyrannical, and lame, they are also pitifully humorless,” Providence Magazine’s Rebeccah Heinrichs tweeted.

“Conservabros who defended tech censorship see the world differently now that Jesse Kelly has been suspended,” journalist and documentary film maker Mike Cernovich wrote.

Kelly’s ban is just the latest in what Republicans have claimed is an ongoing “war on conservatives”.

In September, outspoken right-wing altertative news giant Alex Jones was banned from most social media platforms, including Twitter on the grounds of “hate speech”.

Independent journalist Laura Loomer was also banned by Twitter and Facebook last week for criticizing the practice of female genital mutilation, which is a common practice in the Muslim faith.

According to Twitter’s “terms of use” page, Kelly should have been provided an explanation from Twitter around what policy he may have violated.

“When we permanently suspend an account, we notify people that they have been suspended for abuse violations, and explain which policy or policies they have violated and which content was in violation,” Twitter says on its website.

According to those who have spoken to Kelly in the wake of his ban, no notification or reason was given in this case.
