Twitter has deemed the Star of David, a symbol of Judaism and Jewish pride, to be “hateful imagery,” and is locking the accounts of users who display it.
Several Twitter users have contacted Campaign Against Antisemitism in recent days, reporting that their accounts have been locked, and Twitter has provided the following rationale: “What happened? We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically for: Violating our rules against posting hateful imagery. You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. As a result, we have locked your account.”
The social media platform advises users that if they delete the “hateful imagery,” i.e., the Star of David, the account may be unlocked.
The Stars of David in the profile pictures of locked accounts vary from artistic blue Stars of David and graffitied white Stars of David to, most ironically, a portfolio of yellow Stars of David.
The Campaign Against Antisemitism has reported that several Twitter users have contacted them in recent days to say that the social media platform had locked their accounts. The reason given? According to messages they received from Twitter: “We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically for: Violating our rules against posting hateful imagery. You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. As a result, we have locked your account.”
First, they came for the Christians, then they came for the Jews.
We have heard this for a while, many Jews have seen this in the past, have been worried about the Christian prosecution they understand by the left, but as the old saying goes, when they are done with one, we will be next up, it looks like that is starting now.
This has come after Twitter removed thousands of QAnon accounts, saying they were conspiracy sites, but any far-left conspiracy sites for some odd reason.
Last week, Twitter had removed more than 7,000 accounts associated with the QAnon conspiracy theory, a loose group of online provocateurs who support President Trump and spread absurd claims about forces supposedly attempting to topple the president. Content associated with QAnon will be banned from the platform’s trends…
What is happening is Twitter is cleaning out any group that they deem as not acceptable. They are openly now censoring conservative speech, shutting down, and limiting even the speech of the president.
High Tech is gambling that this all-out assault will result in Trump being gone, for they know if he stays, and they fail in their endeavor. They will face a wrathful Trump in his second term; they could find themselves on the anti-trust table, being hacked into smaller companies that will not have the influence they currently have.
