More on this as we get it

 

After years of provocation, Twitter has permanently banned Milo Yiannopoulos from its service.

Yiannopoulos, who currently serves as Breitbart.com’s tech editor, has been hailed as a standout voice of the new “alt-right” movement. As such, he has made a living as a provocateur, continually inflaming tensions between progressive branches of the internet focused on identity politics and the fervently anti-PC segment that constantly trolls it. For years, Yiannopoulous has used Twitter not only to voice his controversial opinions, but to direct his legion of followers (388,042 at the time of this writing) toward his opponents. As a result, he’s been temporarily banned from Twitter a number of times for violating its terms of service and stripped of his verification…

Here’s the statement, according to a Twitter spokesperson:

People should be able to express diverse opinions and beliefs on Twitter. But no one deserves to be subjected to targeted abuse online, and our rules prohibit inciting or engaging in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Over the past 48 hours in particular, we’ve seen an uptick in the number of accounts violating these policies and have taken enforcement actions against these accounts, ranging from warnings that also require the deletion of Tweets violating our policies to permanent suspension.We know many people believe we have not done enough to curb this type of behavior on Twitter. We agree. We are continuing to invest heavily in improving our tools and enforcement systems to better allow us to identify and take faster action on abuse as it’s happening and prevent repeat offenders. We have been in the process of reviewing our hateful conduct policy to prohibit additional types of abusive behavior and allow more types of reporting, with the goal of reducing the burden on the person being targeted. We’ll provide more details on those changes in the coming weeks.

MY TAKE:

You know the funny thing is, I had a tweet from Milo pulled up earlier that I was going to turn into a story. I can’t show it to you now, but it said something to the effect of feminism turned Leslie Jones into a quivering victim who was crying and whining like a pathetic mess and we should all be very angry because of it. That’s 100% true. Modern feminism and the kinds of people who follow their high priests are complete poison to the public dialogue. They’re not interested in the free and open exchange of ideas…they only want to censor.

I haven’t talked to Milo in a few months, but one thing I’ve always admired about him is the way he triggers the folks I just mentioned. Twitter will be a lot less exciting without him. But the precedent that has been set here will not be forgotten. I expect to see many more bans to come, including my own. I really hope I’m wrong, because I have a lot of fun with my friends and readers over there, but it would be foolish not to think it’s coming now.

MILO SPEAKS:

With the cowardly suspension of my account, Twitter has confirmed itself as a safe space for Muslim terrorists and Black Lives Matter extremists, but a no-go zone for conservatives. Twitter is holding me responsible for the actions of fans and trolls using the special pretzel logic of the left. Where are the Twitter police when Justin Bieber’s fans cut themselves on his behalf? Like all acts of the totalitarian regressive left, this will blow up in their faces, netting me more adoring fans. We’re winning the culture war, and Twitter just shot themselves in the foot. This is the end for Twitter. Anyone who cares about free speech has been sent a clear message: you’re not welcome on Twitter.

MORE MILO:

In an interview with Reason, Yiannopoulos insisted that Twitter would rue the day it retaliated against him. “I’m doing lots of interviews tomorrow,” he said.

He may well be right. The hashtag “Free Milo” began trending on Twitter within hours of his ban.

As I’ve pointed out many times, Twitter is a private company. It can set its own speech policies, and those policies don’t have to be fair. There’s no universal human right to own a Twitter account.

But if Twitter wants to live up to its stated commitment to maintaining a public forum where provocative, controversial, and even occasionally rude or hurtful speech is tolerated, ten it should consider restoring Yiannopoulos’s profile. Giving his friends and followers a reason to reward his antics with even more attention seems like a worse result than simply letting him tweet his offensive remarks.

 

He also talked about this a little bit during his speech at a Gays For Trump gathering in Cleveland, which is were the 2016 Republican National Convention is being held this year….

  1. Cowardly Jack shows what an a$$hat he is. Free speech is truly dead when cretins like Jack and the ilk run riot. What happens now shall prove interesting to watch.

    1. I’d be for that except they’d start censoring and banning people that went against their narrative too.

          1. Their comments section is overrun with rigid thinking conservative koolade drinking morons that will call even a hard right winger like me a liberal because I hold such outrageous ideas that laws should be equally applied and you shouldn’t scream treason for every behavior you don’t like. It’s almost enough to make me register as democrat so I am not associated with such raging buttholes.

          2. SHUT UP — NIGGER — GO VOTE DEMOCRAT … that work for you?
            CUZ YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT PARTY I AM … now you can go be a liberal because muh rigid thinking conservative koolade drinking boogieman

          3. Waah waah, waah, your outrage is delicious. You do a good impression of a brietbart “conservative” acting all butthurt someone replied without marching in lockstep with your opinion. It must be tough being such a pathetic bitch like you.

          4. You’re apparently too stupid for sarcasm and hyperbole too, you belong on brietbart, probably got a membership card and everything, tard.

          5. Seriously, what kind of skin thinned little bitch do you have to be to be offended that the breitbart comment section is full of retards? You think I need a safe space lol, you’re the one oozing butthurt here.

          6. SEE now you’re being an actual shit lord again. Good. Thank god we got you back from that ledge, faggot… before you went and voted Hillary.

  2. And the SJW crowd gets their participation trophies, that’s the only trophy they have for their mantel as they often got last place in life which drove them to the regressive left to begin with.

    1. Watch as people like Anita and everyone else will run riot now as they have no one on the other side to keep them in check.

        1. I’d leave Twitter but I do a lot of business in terms of my book and commissions via the DMs as it is easier to get a hold of people but you know my standings as i am on the moderate Right and it’s just despicable they do nothing about these BLM thugs or ISIS supporters.

        1. “Never Trump” huh? So when push comes to shove you neo-con shitheels wont even do what you demanded everyone else in your party do for as long as I recall which is to hold your nose and vote for the party’s candidate.

          Seriously though I’m not surprised and Shillery is totally welcome to you corporate war hawks. Don’t let me detain you, those Saudi cocks wont suck themselves afterall and I’m sure that keeps you very very busy.

          1. Why argue the faggot, they are just butthurt we aren’t going to be tricked anymore and now see what cuck bitches they are.

        2. Try “Doesn’t Care” #Trump2016 . I’m living in the uK and would vote for Trump. #NeverTrump lost it’s chance to overthrow at the RNC and you all should be ashamed as you’ll let Killary in and then what? Will you feel proud?

  3. Hrmmm it might just be me. But the fact they’re watching Milo so closely and ignoring the rampant numbers of pedophiles and other filth of the world is a clear cut case of harassment.

  4. It is rather sad all the people cheering it. Being pawns to wealthy and politically powerful types must be interesting.

  5. We all knew this was coming for at least a year now. Jim will probably be purged also before the end of the month, Sargon will probably be gone by the end of the summer and they’ll probably even ban Trump before Halloween. The final implosion of twitter has begun.

    1. Im shocked they haven’t already gone after all the Anti-SJW notables. But they’re probably afraid they’ll like the Gestapo that they really are.

      1. I suspect they were just waiting for the right narrative and now they feel like they have it in the wake of the fembusters fiasco and the “misogynistic and racist hate campaign against a woman of color that drove her off of social media”.

        Alot of the tweets directed at what’s her name really did get pretty fucking savage and if they’re ready to ban Milo for “inciting his followers to commit coordinated acts of mass targeted abuse” they’re no doubt ready to start banning his most influential e-celeb friends using the same flimsy illogic

        It’s been a rough year for the SJWs, fembusters is tanking at the box office, Shillery is already losing in the polls before the general election has even started, the Obama coalition has shattered over the Bernie schism, BLM is now openly committing terrorism on a weekly basis that no amount of spin can hide and the normies are really starting to wake up. So no doubt SocJus really really really want a win for their side right now for the sake of morale and this is the best they could come up with.

        1. But like everything else they’ve done, it backfired big time. They may have the backing of government and MSM, but positive pubic opinion is near nonexistent and still getting lower. Even with all their power, they are doomed to fail, because power is not enough to protect them.

          1. These conversations we used to only have in comments sections like this one just two years ago, these are now the conversations I constantly overhear people having at my work.

    2. If Sargon goes, I blame that Leftie Labour Politician that wants to “Reclaim the Internet” and is a rabid feminazi.

  6. Weird, I don’t ever remember Milo posting revenge porn or outing Trans people. He’s mental, isn’t he?

    1. I think Butts is just salty because Milo exposed him What is worrying is that there are 2000 idiots listening to what that paedophile monster has to has.

      1. You mean 2000 followers or 2000 idiots who “listen and believe”? There’s always a chance some of her followers don’t like her and are acting as watchdogs.

  7. So Twitter BANS Milo permanently but allows Black LIES Matter goons to operate on Twitter threatening cops and white people? We know that Twitter is owned by a leftist cuck named Jack Dorsey who lied on air saying he doing censor people for political speech. The only thing we can hope for is that Twitters stock continues to plummet.

  8. Yeah, I think we all saw this coming when Jack asked Jones to DM him. Now that so many people across the political spectrum defend Milo I wonder how the corporate heads will react.

  9. I actually think that most of those mean tweets were planned to try and get sympathizers to see the movie and Milo is just being a scapegoat. Look at how mean comments netted Anita all that cash?

  10. Lol what a bunch of dumbasses. What the fuck was Twitter thinking when they thought this was a good idea. They should have known the backlash this was going to get. Well Jim was right again. #FreeMilo #FreeNero

    God I wish someone does a rival site cause we need one right about now. Fuck they are sitting on a gold mine.
