Twitter Has A Problem With Its Treatment of Jewish Americans

The platform is willing to lend itself to those who wish death to all Jews, but not Jews who use the First Amendment to defend themselves.

Twitter Problem Treatment Jewish Americans

Twitter seems eager to ban Jewish conservatives who are critical of radical Islam, while Muslim organizations tied to terrorism are welcome on the platform.

On Tuesday, Jewish conservative author and intellectual David Horowitz was briefly banned from Twitter. After a massive conservative backlash, the big tech platform claimed the ban was unintentional and reversed it.

It turns out Horowitz had the gall to call out Rep. Ilhan Omar, the anti-Semitic Muslim congresswoman, who according to Horowitz “blamed Israel for the 700 Hamas/Iranian rockets fired on civilians in Israel and called on the U.S. to withdraw its support for Israel.” Horowitz went on to explain that his “offending comment then followed: ‘Oh, and then we can get on with killing Jews.'”

Twitter deemed this a hateful comment against an individual, presumably Omar, when it clearly was a sarcastic condemnation of her anti-Israel rhetoric.

While organizations like Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, which are linked with terrorism, and considered terrorist organizations by multiple nations, are allowed on Twitter, condemning elected American officials who support these organizations is cause for alarm at Twitter headquarters.

Horowitz’s concerns are not without merit. Hamas states that its singular goal is to “obliterate Israel”, the ethnic homeland of Jews around the world. They also claim that “The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight Jews and kill them.”

Meanwhile, Muslim Brotherhood activists pledged to fight the “battle against Jerusalem’s Judaization” and stated that their goal is to “kill all the Jews.”

These organizations receive a pass from Twitter for unknown reasons, while Jewish writers and activists are under massive scrutiny.

Laura Loomer represents a perfect example. Loomer is an activist who has dedicated her life to exposing radical Muslims throughout the world, including, according to her, in the halls of Congress.

As punishment, the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Council on American Islamic Relations lobbied for Twitter to ban her. Twitter obliged CAIR in November of last year, banning Loomer from the platform. Loomer responded to her ban with a lawsuit, but the wheels of justice within the United States court system move slowly.

Repeatedly, we have seen Twitter, which is owned in large by Saudi Arabia, shut down Jewish Americans at the behest of Muslim organizations and individuals, even though these organizations may have directly or indirectly called for the death of all Jews.

This leads some to wonder whether Twitter has a problem with all Jews, or merely those who align themselves with President Donald J. Trump.

Update: Since this article’s publication on Tuesday night, Twitter has permanently suspended Horowitz’s account.

Facebook Runs Electoral Interference to Stop Surging Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer

Facebook’s discriminatory practices against Loomer may be illegal.

Congressional candidate Laura Loomer has dominated fundraising numbers and is crushing the polls, but Big Tech is intervening in an attempt to halt her campaign’s momentum.

Loomer announced on free speech platform Gab that Facebook is banning her campaign ads in what could be considered a form of electoral interference.

“This newest ban goes beyond just a ban of the Laura Loomer For Congress Facebook Page (which is required to run ads). My campaign was told yesterday that if a PAC attempted to advertise to promote my campaign, their ads would be taken down. Facebook said their new policy is that nothing about Laura Loomer is permitted on Facebook and for the duration of the election cycle, my campaign will not get access to run any of our own ads,” Loomer wrote.

“People will be banned for simply typing my name “Laura Loomer”. We have received several reports today from supporters who said their pages were suspended because the posted my donation link and my ads!” she added.

Loomer said in a statement provided to different media outlets that this should be considered criminal electoral interference because her primary competitor, incumbent Democrat Lois Frankel, is allowed to publish ads on Facebook’s vast monopoly platform.

“I’m the only federal candidate in the nation banned from advertising on Facebook. My competitor, Lois Frankel is running ads on Facebook to reach voters, and my campaign is shut out. This is illegal election interference,” Loomer said.

“If the idea of banning Lois Frankel from advertising on Facebook outrages you, you should be equally outraged over the fact that my campaign is universally de-platformed and is being denied equal access to run ads on Facebook,” she added.

Loomer is currently suing Facebook and other tech giants due to her arbitrary removal from the platform, as Big League Politics has reported:

According to Allum Bokhari of Breitbart, Facebook has demanded a federal judge in Miami to immediately dismiss a defamation lawsuit that Laura Loomer brought against them.

Facebook put forward the argument that its decision to ban her as a “dangerous individual” does not fall under the grounds of defamation.

Facebook filed a motion to dismiss where it argued that “calling someone ‘dangerous’— or saying that she ‘promoted or ‘engaged’ in ‘hate’— is a protected statement of opinion.”

Facebook called attention to how other platforms have banned her and stated that “this is clearly an issue where, at a minimum, reasonable minds can disagree.”

Additionally, the motion cited Loomer’s appearances with Gavin McInnes, another individual that Facebook labeled as “dangerous”, as a justification for deplatforming her.

Breitbart News exclusively revealed a year ago that Facebook takes into account off-site behavior to determine whether certain users get deplatformed.

Bokhari noted that Facebook engages in the monitoring of “the on-platform and off-platform activities of prominent political individuals in an internal file called ‘Hate Agent policy review’.”

Loomer aims to become the next U.S. Representative in Florida’s 21st Congressional district in spite of the Big Tech conspiracy gunning for her.
