Twitter just suspended my account this morning, with no specific reason given to me besides their claim that I violated their rules for “hateful conduct”. I have been on twitter for a number of years, and I was able to earn the following of 13, 500 people. I really enjoy the platform and the interaction I get on it, outside of the death threats, which I’ve received over the years on Twitter, but which Twitter didn’t always deem objectionable, after I reported them. There are at least two individuals who’ve threatened me on Twitter who still have active Twitter accounts.
I often tweeted about my comic book work, about Free Speech, against overbearing governments, but mainly against the Islamic enemy who is motivated by Islam. For too many people today, stating that fact, that this monstrous enemy embodies “one of the world’s great religions”, “the religion of peace”, is considered “hate speech”, when it’s simply the truth, or true speech. Since Twitter didn’t give me a specific example of what they claimed to be my “hateful conduct”, I think it’s simply the fact that writing Honestly about Islam means that one will inevitably insult and condemn Islam, because to write honestly about Islam is to write about unspeakable things, and things that the social media masters do not want to hear.
If I’m never to be reinstated on Twitter, I think my final tweet says it all, with my anti-Jihad superhero, Pigman, holding up The First Amendment, with my accompanying text: The three most important issues of our time are Free Speech, Free Speech and Free Speech. Only by saying what needs to be said can we do what needs to be done.
