Twitter Reinstates Carpe Donktum

The popular Twitter account of Carpe Donktum was reinstated today after Twitter suspended it, apparently at the behest of Brian and Ed Krassenstein.

It was originally reported by Big League Politics and other media outlets that Carpe Donktum was suspended for 12 hours for posting a tweet that read “BUILD THE WALL!” and including a viral video he made earlier this year, depicting President Donald J. Trump and several prominent media outlets in a Western shootout scene.

Later reports revealed the Krassenstein brothers may have directed their Twitter followers to report the video and tweet, leading to the suspension. Carpe Donktum at one point confirmed that Twitter required him to delete the tweet before he would be allowed to return to the platform.

Strangely, on Friday afternoon Carpe Donktum announced that he was allowed back to the platform without deleting the offending tweet. According to Carpe Donktum, the tweet was reported by the Krassensteins and their followers, who he claims alleged it was an example of targeted harassment, presumably toward CNN’s Jim Acosta.

“Twitter has unlocked my account and RESTORED THE TWEET that @EdKrassen and @Krassenstein FRAUDULENTLY REPORTED as targeted harassment,” wrote the viral meme creator. He added, rhetorically, “When will they be receiving their SUSPENSION” for allegedly targeting harassment toward Carpe Donktum.

Big League Politics reported:

Carpe Donktum, who has had multiple meme videos reposted or retweeted by President Donald J. Trump, was suspended from Twitter for 12 hours after publishing a tweet that merely read “BUILD THAT WALL” and tagged President Trump’s Twitter account.

The link in CarpeDonktum’s tweet contained a video, still available on Twitter, that the user created. It depicts President Trump in a Western-style shootout with various members of the media, and audio from one of the president’s many combative press conferences.

Big League Politics never received a response to our original request for comment from Twitter, and still has not received word from the platform as to why Carpe Donktum was banned, or why his account was restored earlier today.

We also reached out to Carpe Donktum for comment to see if he could elaborate on the alleged targeted harassment from the Krassensteins, and did not receive an immediate response.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

on

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley”

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
