In which Twitter demonstrates the complete futility of the conservative “owning the libs” strategy:
Twitter declared access to its platform a ‘human right’ on Saturday, prompting conservatives to accuse the firm of hypocrisy after it banned former President Donald Trump and others for violating its terms of service.The social media giant’s statement came as a response to Nigeria’s decision to ban Twitter over the deletion of a tweet from Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari that was seen as threatening separatist movements.‘We are deeply concerned by the blocking of Twitter in Nigeria. Access to the free and #OpenInternet is an essential human right in modern society,’ the company said in a statement.
What, pray tell, is the point of trying to prove, for the Nth time, that the Left is hypocritical when they have been openly and shamelessly trumpeting their right to impose double standards since before they were known as “the Left”? If they didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all.
