Don’t get noticed in the major mainstream press as a conservative if you want to keep your social media accounts. The first time Rush Limbaugh read one of my articles, my YouTube channel was demonetized. The second time, which was last week, my Twitter account was suspended. On November 26, I published an article titled “Teachers Attend ‘LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP’ Sensitivity Training (WTF?).” The next day Matt Drudge linked it and it went viral. Then Rush Limbaugh read it on the air.
A few hours later, my Twitter account was suspended for responding to someone commenting about the article who accused me of “harming people” by writing it. My response used a colloquialism, “go hang,” which Twitter claims is harassment. I used it in the colloquial style that, according to the Cambridge Dictionary, means “I don’t care what you say,” which is exactly how I meant it.
Twitter forced me to delete the tweet in order to regain access to my account and imposed a 12-hour suspension on me. When I regained access to my account it happened again shortly after. The second infraction occurred when I retweeted the president’s tweets of Muslims behaving murderously and tossing people off roofs. Someone tried to tell me that Muslims don’t really behave this way in England. I responded with a tweet that got me a second suspension.
Twitter forced me to delete a tweet urging someone to be cautious and safe. This one didn’t even have an insult in it! In case you’re wondering what a “sexual emergency” is, it was a Muslim rapist’s actual defense of child rape! This is not The Onion but an actual news article from the UK Daily Mail!
An Iraqi refugee who raped a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool has had his conviction overturned because a court didn’t prove he realised the boy was saying no.
The rapist, identified as Amir A, 20, violently sexually assaulted the boy in the changing room of Theresienbad pool in Austria claiming it was a ‘sexual emergency’ because he had not had sex for four months.
The term “sexual emergency” is now a legal term! Don’t get me started on what kind of judge would allow such an argument to not only be used but to prevail in a court of law. Nothing I said in my tweet was untrue. I also was expressing concern that this woman would be harmed and wished her well. This is apparently grounds for suspension. What’s more alarming is that with each suspension the threat of having your entire account deleted grows. Twitter keeps warning me that more infractions will result in permanent banning. Of course, I have no idea what rule I will break next.
With this recent crackdown on “personal attacks” or whatever, it’s interesting to note that Twitter doesn’t care at all about people threatening to kill President Trump or hating white people.

Assassination threats are okay and being a black racist is okay, but suggesting women should not walk alone at night near Muslims having sexual emergencies is not okay.
I fully expect my Twitter account to be deleted in the coming days. Is it related to how popular my columns are and how widely they are read? Alternatives to Twitter are in the works but not coming fast enough for the conservative purge.
