David Duke Suspended From Twitter After David Sherratt Calls Him Out for Alleged #BasedStickMan Incitement

I’ve been so tied up in personal shit that I haven’t gotten to talk about Based Stick Man and the drama surrounding it. A short breakdown goes something like this:

There were dueling protests at Berkeley the other day in response to the drama from last month. Things got out of hand and a dressed up like some cyberpunk version of Captain America cracked the skull of some antifa lackey. Judging by the video, it’s not clear if it was an offensive or a defensive maneuver. I tend to lean toward the defensive designation, but I’ll let you all make up your minds individually.

And here’s a longer YouTube video…


Actually, after watching the longer clip, it looks like both sides were kind of engaged in a team battle. So, I don’t know if you could call it defensive. Mutually offensive might be the better designation. Either way, I don’t think it’s worth the five felony counts this guy is now facing, especially if he’s the only one who has been charged so severely.

Anyway, we’ll see what happens on those. The point of that little background lesson was so we could talk about the main topic, which is David Duke’s suspension from Twitter. He styles himself as a doctor, although I believe that’s in dispute by some of his political enemies. Perhaps his doctorate is in Thuganomics, like John Cena’s. Regardless, the guy is extremely controversial here in the United States.

Memes like these might help to explain the reason…

Still, regardless of what one thinks of the man, he’s been on Twitter for awhile. To my knowledge, he had never been suspended. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong on that. But early this morning he tweeted out an image of the Based Stick Man (real name Kyle Chapman) that apparently went too far for the powers that be at Twitter.com.

You see David Sherratt (aka spinosauruskin) there calling this incitement, which I’m not sure of, to be honest. I mean, if you’re applying the term loosely, perhaps. But it could also be called comedy. It’s probably fair to call it borderline, though. Personally, I think perhaps locking his account and making him delete the offending tweet would probably be enough, but I imagine Twitter has been looking for a reason to ban David Duke for a long, long time.

Also, I can’t say whether or not Sherratt’s tweet got him banned, only that the ban came after. Perhaps some of his followers dutifully went and reported the tweet for incitement. We don’t know, at this point.

Oh, and I should also include the usual disclaimer about not agreeing with Duke on a lot of things, I’m not a racist, blah, blah, blah. I think anyone with a brain who reads this site knows my political philosophy diverges from Duke’s. But even writing this up gives the haters ammo. Still, I will happily defend free speech at all times. Admmittedly, this meme was borderline, as I said. However, I don’t think it was a suspension-level offense.

 

UPDATE: Duke has been restored…

And his original meme tweet still stands, as of now…

  • Wouldn’t incitement have to happen before the act that’s supposedly being incited?

    Oh, I looked up Duke’s doctorate a while back. IIRC it’s in history (I forget the specialization) but it’s from a university that was never credentialed.

  • RuralScot

    His account is back up now. Sherratt is a complete tool but I don’t think there is much chance he is responsible here, Duke likely get mass reported every day.

    • JasonC5

      Sherratt has been sperging out at the slightest sign of anything remotely alt-right related and has called Sargon an alt-right sympathizer (thanks to David’s GF for throwing fuel on the fire) and has lashed out at the HoneyBadgerRadio group for their talks on MRM and how sharia is bad for both men and women instead of the current narrative that only women are affected. He has backed ShoeOnHead and ArmouredSkeptic when they shat on the MRM for talking about gynocentrism and hypergamy.

  • Typical

    Holy shit. Why don’t these losers forget about politics and just start LARPing? Seems like that’s what they really want, since they don’t care about facts or rights.

  • Cinj

    Funny how THIS is considered “incitement” but the numerous tweets where people outright call for violence, rioting/looting, and even presidential assassination is a-ok.

  • Toastrider

    This deserves some commentary, specifically: Don’t go stupid places. Do NOT seek these people out. Any lawyer worth their salt will tell you there’s a massive difference between looking for trouble and ‘I had to protect myself, officer’.

    If you need more encouragement, review the case of Mike Strickland, here: http://www.ammoland.com/2017/02/ccw-holder-wrongly-convicted-in-5-minutes-defending-life-blm-thugs/ . Yes, this is the guy from Oregon who basically got railroaded for holding off a pack of feral BLM thugs with a sidearm — he deliberately crashed the rally, though, which falls into the ‘going stupid places’. Now he’s looking at fifty years in prison (the prosecutor, in cahoots with a lefty judge, basically bent him over legally and fucked him with a strap on and no lube).

    Should he be in jail? Hell no. But the fact is he IS in jail. Don’t go picking these fights, gentlemen and ladies. Let them start it — but you make damn sure to finish it.

      To be fair it was a Pro-Trump rally, so I’m pretty sure the “AntiFa” and “Progressive” thugs who showed up armed with sticks were the ones who started it. It just turns out that the conservative-minded people expected this and brought their own stick, protective personal equipment, and pepper spray. Yay chemical deterrents!

      • Toastrider

        Yeah, but at BERKELEY? That’s not ‘contested territory’. That’s not ‘occupied territory’.

        That’s ENEMY territory, full stop. And considering how the Berkeley cops were instructed to ‘not interfere’ when Milo rolled in, anyone there should operate under the assumption the cops will NOT help, and will in fact arrest you if you push back.

        Believe me, nothing would please me greater than to see these antifa stooges get a sound beating. But in hard-blue areas like this, it’s a rigged game from the start.

        • Silence Dogood

          If the cops want to abandon their duty then let the people reclaim the streets and mete out justice accordingly. It is important to attack these breeding grounds, especially ones that specialize in youth indoctrination, as much as possible. Disrupt the narrative, force them to be confronted with ideas and opinions that violate their spurious safe spaces – force them to realize that their tough talk and bullying tactics will get a mud hole stomped into their ass.

          • Toastrider

            Yeah, but the problem is, what do you do when the duly-authorized enforcers move in? Do you go quietly? Do you ask them, ‘Oh, do you want some too?’.

            For that matter, the cops have an essentially bulletproof excuse as far as ‘duty’ goes. SCOTUS ruled in Warren vs DC, that the police are NOT obligated to protect you the individual. Ironically, this is what led to the Heller decision which has gutted so many gun control laws across the U.S.

            Believe me, I’m not disagreeing with your sentiments. But the bastards are running their dirty little game in places where they KNOW everyone’s in their corner. I’d like to see federal action based on violation of the equal-protection statute — rub their noses in it for a change. But I suspect it’s going to just come down to people fighting back and getting jailed.

            Maybe that’s what’s needed — take a page from the Wobblies, converge on these ‘one rule for you, another rule for them’ hellholes, and force them to either go to the trouble of dealing with tons of angry people, or let us stomp their little leftist brownshirt buddies into grease smears.

    *watches video*

    For what it’s worth, I think Based Stick Man is fucking screwed and tattooed. It’s obvious from the video that dudeman was attacking from behind; that’s not going to fly as kosher with any cop, judge, or jury. Especially in Cali. I imagine he’ll be encouraged to plead out.

  • Silence Dogood

    You should hear how panicked the (mostly old) Hard Left is about this sort of shit (the rioting, not the banning). They’re like, “ermahgurd Trump is a fascist and his followers are fascist!”… never mind the progressive thugs went their armed and looking for a fight. And considering this was a pro-Trump rally you can be damn sure they started it. And the Trump supporters finished it. Yay America! They really want Trump to be viewed as a Fascist, despite the fact that he has done nothing that would indicate that. He’s at war with the press because the press is at war with him – they’re not even pretending otherwise. He uses presidential powers that Obama acquired; no laws broken there. He’s in charge of a political party that, largely speaking, doesn’t like him (he’s an outsider after all, and a populist to boot); he doesn’t have legions of fascists looking to overthrow democracy and curtail peoples freedoms. Trump supporters just want Trump to fulfill his promises (which he is on track to doing) and defend conservative values. He’s doing just that. This really is just a case of globalists vs everyone else with progressive adult-children being used as useful idiots.

      David Sherrat is known as Spinosauruskin on Youtube and has been part of the “skeptic community” since the GamerGate debacle but has gone full retard in recent months quite possibly due to him getting a girlfriend (whom I’m told is Syrian). He called Sargon an Alt-Right sympathizer just for having Millennial Woes on a livestream debate and doing what he normally does with guests: be diplomatic and let them present their ideas and allow others to
      make up their own minds.

      Nevertheless, David’s GF threw gasoline on the fire by adding some bullshit in their twitter spat.

      Funny thing is David Sherratt was against dogpiling and driving people out of discussion not all that long ago and kept harping about taking the moral high ground. The fucking little hypocrite has amassed a following and are now white knighting for both these little bitches whenever he gets called out for his fuckery.

      • Silence Dogood

        Yeah, you have to be really careful when dealing with people who are genuinely autistic as they will begin to do things that are pretty fucked up and fail to see that what they’re doing is fucked up and causing a problem. Although on the other side of the fence you have Harmful Opinions who is sort of trying to keep everyone honest and mostly just trying to burn the Bindu chick’s world down for trying to terrorize his mother (which I fully endorse as a measured and appropriate response – do not fuck with family).

        • JasonC5

          I support Harmful Opinions fully and has given me more disdain for Armoured Skeptic, MundaneMatt and TJ from Amazing Atheist. Shoe0nHead is almost as bad as she’s a disingenuous cunt and no one dares to call her out on anything because GG/ anti-fems white knight just as hard for her no matter what.

  • fnd

    Where can i get a degree in Thuganomics? don’t care if it’s fake.

  • JasonC5

    I’ll repeat this here so that people can see that David is a little bitch ass punk: David Sherrat is known as Spinosauruskin on Youtube and has been part of the “skeptic community” since the GamerGate debacle but has gone full retard in recent months quite possibly due to him getting a girlfriend (whom I’m told is Syrian). He called Sargon an Alt-Right sympathizer just for having Millennial Woes on a livestream debate and doing what he normally does with guests: be diplomatic and let them present their ideas and allow others to

    For public safety, Twitter should probably ban (((David Sherratt))) and Jews in general.
