Twitter continues with its double standards when it comes to blocking accounts. While tolerating all kinds of messages in favor of the murder of unborn children, recently criticized a girl for defending them.
The girl denounces the double standard of Twitter
A few months ago I already told you about Charlotte Helene Fien, a young British woman who is a very courageous Pro-Life activist and with very clear ideas. And she has reason to be: Charlotte has Down syndrome, and she knows that people like her are exterminated before they are born in countries where abortion is legal or decriminalized. A few days ago, Charlotte posted a pro-life image on her Twitter account, according to LifeNews. Because of this, Twitter blocked her for 24 hours, preventing her from publishing. Last Tuesday, she denounced what happened in a message that went viral: “After more than 24 hours I’m allowed back into my Twitter account. Funny how Twitter allows willy pics and boobs. Funny how Twitter allows paedophiles and other scum. Funny how Twitter doesn’t like my Pro Life pics and blocks them.“
Twitter has been imposing its censorship on Pro-Lifers for years
Charlotte has received hundreds of messages of support and the censorship of her account has appeared in several digital newspapers in English language. It is not the first time that the Californian company imposes its capricious censorship on the defenders of unborn children. Three years ago, Twitter blocked two pictures of babies published by the pro-CitizenGO organization along with pro-life messages. In October 2017, Twitter censored a pro-life video of US Republican congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, claiming that her speech “is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction”: political correction, once again, used to censor ideas that are not to the liking from the Left. A few weeks later, Twitter censored ads from the pro-life group SBA List for using the expression “killing babies”. In March 2018, The Daily Caller complained that Twitter continues to apply censorship to pro-life images for reasons such as showing a picture of a prenatal baby and even posters from the Human Coalition Pro-Life group with slogans such as “Abortion is not healthcare”, “Almost 80% of the Planned Parenthood facilities are in minority communities” (next to a photo of a black child) or “Planned Parenthood aborts over 900 babies a day”.
Terrorists and apologists for terrorism, tolerated by Twitter
The thing changes when instead of Pro-Life groups, we refer to Hamas, FARC, Hezbollah, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the PFLP-General Command and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, all organizations considered terrorists by USA but that, nevertheless, maintain accounts in that social network without Twitter censuring them, not even to block them by the hate messages that they post frequently. The same tolerance found by all kinds of far-left activists, including some condemned in Spain for advocating terrorist gangs such as ETA and the GRAPO, but who keep their accounts and hate messages without being censored by Twitter.
