A prominent conservative has been banned from using her Twitter account for 12 hours for replacing the word “white” with the word “black” in a quote by New York Times editor Sarah Jeong.
“White people are only fit to live underground like groveling goblins. They have stopped breeding and will all go extinct soon. I enjoy being cruel to white women,” Jeong wrote on Twitter.
That was fine by Twitter standards.
But for replacing “white” with “black,” and Tweeting the exact same message, black conservative Candace Owens was blocked from using her Twitter account.
Jeong is allowed to continue to spew her hatred for all things white, while Candace Owens is punished for making the point that if the roles were reversed, it wouldn’t fly.
Black people are only fit to live underground like groveling goblins. They have stopped breeding and will all go extinct soon. I enjoy being cruel to old black women.

Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer pointed out the outrageous double standard:
It’s more than a double standard.
This is more proof that Twitter hates white people!
It is insane how some refuse to see this. https://t.co/sa9Etp7nXT

Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, said that Owens was banned because she’s a conservative, whereas Jeong is allowed to be racist because she is a liberal. The hypocrisy is mind-blowing.
UNREAL! @RealCandaceO has been banned from tweeting for 12 hours because she allegedly violated Twitter terms in service
She tweeted nothing wrong!
And interestingly @sarahjeong hasn’t been banned or suspended
Why was Candace banned?
Because she is a conservative

Sarah Jeong made headlines last week – not for her work with the failing New York Times – rather for her racist comments that all stem from her hatred for white men, white women, basically anyone who is white.
Big League Politics reported the New York Times blamed Jeong’s actions on her being the “subject of frequent online harassment.”
“Her journalism and the fact that she is a young Asian woman have made her a subject of frequent online harassment,” wrote the New York Times about Sarah Jeong, newly-hired editor. “For a period of time, she responded to that harassment by imitating the rhetoric of harassers.”
So according to the Times, Jeong was not being a racist, she was simply imitating racists. Weasel wording like this and excuse-making for their own double standards are precisely why Americans rightly loathe the mainstream press.
“She sees now that this approach only served to feed the vitriol that we too often see on social media,” the Times said. “She regrets it, and The Times does not condone it.”
Remember this the next time the left says there is no conservative censorship on Twitter.
