Twitter Should Dump Farrakhan’s Hate



What is Twitter? A few years back, if we told our mothers we were twittering, they’d rush us to the doctor for a checkup.. But the giant business, Twitter, like Facebook is a new breed of conversing with others through the internet. It’s called, “social networking.” It’s chatting with people electronically. And that can be dangerous. What you send to one person can soon be transmitted to thousands for their viewing. And since the private corporation oversees and judges “the quality” of the messages, it can, at their discretion, kick out users it deems unfit for their service.

Here is how the Twitter people define their “hateful conduct policy.”


“You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age disability, or serious disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.”  And to emphasize their concern for their members they recently added on to their rules the following: “You may not dehumanize anyone based on membership in an identifiable group, as this speech can lead to offline harm.” This reads all well and good but the Twitter people are the judges in such situations and that leads us to tell us just why they still permit Louis Farrakhan, the arch Jew/Israel/White/Christian/America hater to spew out his vile hatred to the Twitter community without being held to the rules stated above.


Recently, Farrakhan tweeted in referring to Jews: “I’m not mad at you..because you’re so stupid. So when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater…call me an anti-Semite – stop it! I’m anti-termite.” And a tweet from his group, The Final News: “What the Jewish community is going to have to confront is the fact that you have been our Hitlerl. you have mass-promoted, through media, the extermination of Black people and the complete disrespect of Black women.” Can this lead to physical  violence against Jews on the part of such hate groups as Black Lives Matter and AntiFa?


Even the Far Left ADL has had enough. Their comment: “Louis Farrakhan has a long history of vile, anti-Semitic and anti–LBGTQ rhetoric. His latest remarks dehumanizing Jews by calling us termites are despicable.” And Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL Director states: “We call on Twitter to remove Farrakhan’s hateful content from the platform to prevent him from spreading and normalizing such hateful messages.”


We agree and go a bit further by calling on all forms of media to black out and refuse to report on the speeches, meetings and messages put out by Farrakhan and his organization. He has to be shunned like the despicable human being he is.
