As Ben Shapiro notes over at The Daily Wire, the company this week permanently banned Bruce Carroll’s popular GayPatriot account. The reason is still unclear, but it had previously suspended him for calling Chelsea Manning a “traitor” and for referring to her by her birth name, Bradley.
“Traitor” is well within the bounds of opinion. But using a transgender person’s previous name is “hate speech” in progressive eyes — plainly worse than saying Jews are termites.
If Twitter can’t find a way to police Farrakhan’s hate tweets, it should give up on pretending to enforce objective standards.
