Twitter Bans ‘Alt-Right’ Accounts, Lets Racist New Black Panther Party Stay


Twitter has begun suspending major accounts linked to the “alt-right” movement. The move comes on the heels of Donald Trump’s win that shocked most in political & media establishments.

Many in the alt-right movement supported Trump’s campaign for president. Members of the movement oppose multiculturalism, globalism, immigration, feminism, and political correctness.

Mainstream media, and even Hillary Clinton have described the alt-right as a racist movement, but leading figures of the group strongly disagree.

Via Daily Caller:

Twitter has initiated a major purge of prominent accounts associated with the alt-right exactly a week after GOP President-elect Donald Trump’s stunning electoral victory.

One of the first and most prominent accounts caught up in the deletion is Richard Spencer, president and director of the National Policy Institute, an alt-right think tank focused on white identity and related policy issues.

Twitter removed Spencer’s verified account, formerly available at @RichardBSpencer, Tuesday evening.

“This is corporate Stalinism,” Richard Spencer told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Twitter is trying to airbrush the Alt Right out of existence. They’re clearly afraid. They will fail!”

Not only did Twitter kill Spencer’s personal account, but Twitter also suspended the National Policy Institute’s official account (@npiamerica) and its online magazine (@RadixJournal), in addition to a separate book publishing company run by Spencer called Washington Summit Publishers (@washsummit).

The ban took place the same day Spencer appeared on NPR and The Daily Show.

Paul Town, one of the alt-right trolls responsible for feeding Olivia Nuzzi at The Daily Beast a false and outlandish narrative on how Pepe the cartoon frog came to be associated with white nationalism, was also suspended.

Other suspended users, among many, include Pax Dickinson, Ricky Vaughn and John Rivers — all notable alt-right accounts.

Several Twitter users noted that the mass bans could be a result of new reporting features the company added to prevent “hate against a race, religion, gender, or orientation,” as part of a policy change.


Syndicated columnist Ben Shapiro who is Jewish posted that he is a frequent target of the alt-right, but does not believe they should be suspended from the social media platform.

Many pointed out the hypocrisy of Twitter’s move.

One user suggested blocking all “antagonists” so they can’t see what users post, which actually may be a good idea.

Well known Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos is part of the alt-right. He was suspended by Twitter back in July for what the social media company described as “targeted abuse of individuals.” Yiannopoulos denies he did anything wrong.

Yiannopoulos describes alt-right as being “natural conservatives.”

Natural conservatives can broadly be described as the group that the intellectuals above were writing for. They are mostly white, mostly male middle-American radicals, who are unapologetically embracing a new identity politics that prioritises the interests of their own demographic.

For natural conservatives, culture, not economic efficiency, is the paramount value. More specifically, they value the greatest cultural expressions of their tribe. Their perfect society does not necessarily produce a soaring GDP, but it does produce symphonies, basilicas and Old Masters. The natural conservative tendency within the alt-right points to these apotheoses of western European culture and declares them valuable and worth preserving and protecting.

Yiannopoulos admits there are actual racists in the movement, but he says there are very few, and they are not popular with the real intellectuals behind the movement.

What has Twitter not done? Suspended accounts belonging to the racist New Black Panther Party. Even the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated the party as a hate group – “The New Black Panther Party is a virulently racist and anti-Semitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against whites, Jews and law enforcement officers.”

If Twitter wants to suppress opposing views, they should know it can go both ways.
