Twitter Bans MAGAPhobia Account

Last night Twitter banned a new account, @MAGAPhobia, created to chronicle instances of violence used against conservative supporters of President Donald J. Trump.

In the midst of a late night purge of conservative accounts, Twitter banned the conservative user who used the platform to log all instances of violence used against supporters of President Trump. As Big League Politics has detailed over the last several months, vocal supporters of the president are routinely attacked in public, have their property vandalized or destroyed, and face intimidation for simple acts, such as wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat or having it displayed in a vehicle.

Also last night, a parody account mocking Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was banned last night, with Twitter sending the user an email suggesting he did not properly identify it as a parody, even though the word “parody” was used both in the account’s name and bio.

Anti-Trump violence appears to be on the rise around the country.

Just this year, prominent Trump supporters Brandon Straka, Michael Knowles, and Owen Shroyer were all attacked in one day, an immigrant man was attacked in his neighborhood for wearing a ‘MAGA’ hat, a man was attacked for wearing his ‘MAGA’ hat during a Christchurch mosque vigil, a Massachusetts woman attacked a man for wearing his ‘MAGA’ hat then claimed to be the victim of the altercation, and Canadian conservative Faith Goldy and another man were attacked in nearby Toronto, Canada for wearing pro-Trump accessories and holding signs with anti-racism slogans.

The situation is exacerbated when considering crimes against private property.

Since March, at least three individuals have had their property vandalized for supporting President Trump. A recreational vehicle used to sell pro-Trump merchandise outside rallies was battered overnight, a man had his tires slashed by a woman who later admitted to being provoked by the ‘MAGA’ hat on his dashboard, and just this week tires were slashed outside a pro-Trump event.

Big League Politics asked Twitter for comment on why the @MAGAPhobia account was banned and did not receive a response.
