New White House Comms Director "Suspended" From Twitter One Day After Appointment

Tyler Durden's picture

It appears the mob has won (a battle, perhap not the war).

Following a coordinated alt-left attack targeting Hope Hicks' account, Twitter has suspended the new White House Communications Director's account after a mass-reporting.

Here is Hope's Twitter page...

The Alt-Left is cheering their victory...

We suspect Twitter will be more than a little embarrassed by this - it appears Jack Dorsey's sophisticated new anti-free-speech, censorship AI algos are really just mob-rule-driven - if enough people don't like what you are saying (or may say), they will comply...

We anxiously await President Trump's response.

Close Twitter. .

Violating freedom of speech.

I look forward to the day that Twitter thinks it's grown balls big enough to shut down Trump's account.

So do I. Shutting down Trump will be a strong signal to start short selling Twitter.

If they had any brains at all, they would IP ban all the idiots making fraudulent reports.

What makes you think that the reports are real?  Twitter is infested with SJW's, who think they are "So Clever" for blocking Trumps spokeswoman (forgive me for assuming her gender).

Twitter is essentially a common carrier than can get a lot more regulatory scrutiny than it has been getting to date. The administration could burn them to the ground, if it chose to. Same for FaceBag.

Keep Twitter going.  It brings to light the absolute stupidity of the Demtards.   This is funny as hell and will not effect anything other than coffee shooting out my nose from laughing so damn hard.

You are aware that the word "Nazi" is a slur derived from an abbreviation of the full name of the German NSDAP, which hasn't existed on the face of the earth since 1945, and was quite specific to a certain ethnonationalist group, and arose at a specific place and time in response to a unique set of political and cultural circumstances, right? And to apply that label to a modern leftist political movement that espouses extreme political, cultural, and moral degeneracy is fucking absurd...right?

It's ignorant fuckwits like you that muddy the waters and make it difficult, if not impossible, for white Americans to grasp modern political developments. Get educated, or gas yourself and put us out of your misery.

The Alarmist's picture

Seriously, dude, no more absurd than applying it to Trump and his supporters. The AntiFa are facist by any meaning of the word ... thugs who band together to intimidate and drive off the field of public discourse those whom they despise.

Shut Twitter down. It's nothing more then a sjw terror tool.

Bastiat's picture

"fascist by any meaning of the word"  not really.  Fascism is the marriage of the corporations and the state.  In many ways we are already there.  Antifa are not fascists, they are terrorist thugs of various ideological stripes.  They are being used (and apparently paid) by those who back the left brand.

El Vaquero's picture

Fascism is the subjugation of the individual to the state.  Nothing is outside of the state in fascism.  I would argue that the worst flavors of fascism are what you get when you attempt communism in earnest.  Communism is a skittles shitting unicorn utopia that will always fail, and you'll wind up with a monstrous state that encompasses all when a successful communist revolution fails to produce a stateless, classless society with community ownership of the means of production.  Fascism is a collectivist ideology.  It's not unfair to characterize antifa as fascists.  After all, under despots like Stalin and Mao, the state did encompass all.

"Fascism is the marriage of the corporations and the state"

Uh, wrong. That myth got legs based on a single, misinterpreted/mistranslated quote from Benito Mussolini.

A Fascist state is a state that fully incorporates and exercises the will of the people, for the benefit of all the people. It's why Fascism is inherently ethnocentric, because fascism recognizes that race and ethnicity are what binds people together at the most basic level, and that unless the people are rooted to a traditional, physical geographical homeland, they can have no coherent past, present, or future-- hence the fascist slogan, "Blood and Soil". That's why it's so absurd to call leftists "fascists"-- they believe in stupid shit like race doesn't exist, people are exactly the same everywhere, and everyone should be rootless, individuated, and fungible economic units that are tied to nothing, nowhere, and nobody. In other words, the exact fucking opposite of what Fascism actually stands for.

Moe Howard's picture

I'm kinda liking that "Blood and Soil" thing, however, I hate government control of the individual, so I guess I'll have to pass for the moment.

BarkingCat's picture

Considering that Mussolini is the father if fascism, it seems that he would know better than you what the definition is.

With regard to ethnicity that was not an issue within most European countries back than. With the exception of jews and gypsies most countries were not very diverse.

The Alarmist's picture

To wit, the Deep State, MSM, FaceBag, Twitter, SJWs and AntiFa organised to supress anyone dedicated to restoring the Republic and indiviual liberties. I think we've met the burden of proof.

Alarmist, and To All:

The Antifa are Totalitarians in the Stalinist mold.

If you are going to get down to it, that is the absolutely precise description of what they are.

I refer to them as Totalitarians, and Stalinists, because of their methods of imposing their ideology on society, and their self-admitted political ideological base.

You may want to join me, and avoid these Nazi or Not controversies, in which the use of Nazi, or fascist, is in-fact inaccurate.

Stalinist Totalitarians is absolutely correct.

From Wikipedia: Stalinism promoted the escalation of class conflict, utilizing state violence to forcibly purge society of claimed supporters of the bourgeoisie, regarding them as threats to the pursuit of the communist revolution that resulted in substantial political violence and persecution of such people. These included not only bourgeois people but also working-class people accused of counter-revolutionary sympathies.

From Wikipedia: Totalitarianism is a political system in which the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible. A distinctive feature of totalitarian governments is an "elaborate ideology, a set of ideas that gives meaning and direction to the whole society."

Antifa is Stalinist Totalitarianism.

Creepy_Azz_Crackaah's picture

I'll just go with AntiFa being Stalinist Totalitarian Fascist SJW-Supremacist Nazis so that all angles are covered.

Can't we just call them American Bolsheviks?

Actually, thinking about it, I guess they are really American Mensheviks.

Uh, no, you moron. For fuck's sake, can you even read? Go back and read what I wrote.

Dindu Nuffins's picture

The Antifa are communist. Violent communist street mobs were the reason that Fascism arose, actually, because Fascism was perceived as better than the Jewish street mobs and deranged communist revolutionaries like Rosa Luxemburg that spawned the German communist revolt of 1919. Weimar Germany looked exactly like modern Weimar America, complete with sexual and moral degeneracy, destruction of wealth through usury, calls for blotting out the native population, and the media owned by a small group telling us day is night.

"... blotting out the native population" -- pretty sure that happened a long time ago.

To be more specific B_B_ :

"

Nazi (also the cognates Nazism and Neo-Nazism) is a political epithet invented by Konrad Heiden (7 August 1901 – 18 June 1966) during the 1920s as a means of denigrating the NSDAP and National Socialism.[1] Heiden was a journalist and member of the Social Democratic Party of Germany, whose mother was a Jewess. The term is both an imitation of the nickname given to Marxists of the SDP at the time, Sozi, and a political pun similar to the Austro-Bavarian word for “simpleton”, derived from the fairly common name Ignatz (German language form of Ignatius). It was then popularised abroad by various Judaics and other subversives, including Heiden himself, who fled the country after the NSDAP were elected to government.

The term was regarded as a derogatory epithet by National Socialists and was used almost exclusively by Marxist agitators. Typically the use of Nazi Germany, and Nazi regime, was popularized by Jewish émigrés from Germany after 1933, especially in English-speaking countries. From them, it spread into other languages.

A rare example of its usage by a NSDAP member can be taken from a 1931 work by Joseph Goebbels called The Nazi-Sozi: Questions and Answers for National Socialists. Since the rise of Cultural Marxism the term has been used as a broad Europhobic epithet, eminating from the same quarters, to demonise European people in general and attack leaders who advocate their socio-economic and cultural interests, far beyond the bounds of actual National Socialists. Some have ironically turned the phrase back on its inventors, through the use of “Nazi” as an abbreviation for National Zionism.

Usage

The word itself derives from a slang from German, nationalsozialismus. It coined for its negative sound and connection, as sozi had previously been used to refer to Marxists in Germany, particularly those of the Social Democratic Party of Germany- Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands.

Media manipulators consisting of journalists, Europhobic historians and degenerate entertainment elites routinely use the term creating subliminal reflexive associations within the host population. For examples of popular political correctness and political bias compare the usage of the term “Soviet Union” with “Commie Russia”.

George Lincoln Rockwell reluctantly adopted the use of word in 1959 when he founded the American Nazi Party. He chose to use it for its publicity and shock value.

Nice so I was correct after all with my use of the word.

JimmyJones's picture

I always thought  it was the name of a German political party that took control with Hitler as their leader.  So no I didn't know and am not sure I even believe you.  Besides if most people believe the definition of what I was speaking to then its fine that I used it because to them it made sense, the type of sense that I wished it to have.  You should actually throw a link in your comment so that if I wanted to get educated you could stear me in the right direction and influence the outcome.  But just sit and complain.

swmnguy's picture

Hey, Buck:  The attack on the political vocabulary of Americans has been going on for quite some time.  For instance, I see this Posebiec character pushing the neologism "Alt-Left."  What the hell does that even mean?  Obviously, it's a fabricated equivalence to "Alt-Right," which is a real term coined by Richard Spencer to describe the Right that includes racial philosophies, in distinction with the traditional American Republican Right which shuns such racial topics in polite circles.

As the primary political arguments in America decline to "I know you are but what am I," and "I'm rubber and you're glue; whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you," and "What-Aboutism" rules discussions (mention any issue, and someone immediately pops up to say, "What About..." some other thing to create a false equivalence and to imply that everyone is corrupt and cynical so my cynical corruption is just fine and you're actually the corrupt cynic for even mentioning my cynical corruption), the result is that we can't even communicate about politics.

That's completely intentional.

Once we can't communicate, all we can do is call each other names.  We're all Nazis, and Commies, and Nazis and Commies are all the same anyway, and efforts to either merge or separate corporate and State power are Commie, Nazi, Libertarian and god knows, Rosicrucian; all at once.

While I'm on the topic, "Antifa" isn't a movement at all.  It's a reaction to the resurgence of what the Europeans call the "Dirty Right," which Richard Spencer wants to call "Alt-Right."  It's right there in the name, "Anti-Fa[scist]."  They have no ideology of their own.  They're just opposed to whomever they consider "Fascists."  You'll note they don't show up on their own; only when people they identify as "Fascists" show up.  20 years ago, when the "Dirty Right" or "Alt-Right" were still keeping a low profile, there wasn't any "Antifa."  Then they were called by the media "Black Bloc Anarchists."  Their main purpose then was to provoke violence at protests, so the Police had the excuse they needed to attack protests with paramilitary force.  Indeed, they still seem to be adjunct to the Police, if not actually on the payroll (and they may indeed be).

The individuals active in "Antifa" have very little in common with each other, besides a fondness for breaking things.  If the "Alt-Right" coalition of groups went back to keeping a low profile, the people in "Antifa" would go back to protesting logging, housing developments in the woods, free trade, mink farms, etc.

No they wouldn't.
Antifa' goal is to paint all right wing as 'dirty right'. It backfired though.
Few that I know on the right care being called it.

I know I don't.

Kind of a strange consequence of opening the Overton window.

I'm far right of dirty, after all the shit I've seen.

Confounding the political language is a very definite (((strategy))) that (((rootless elites))) use to make sure that goyim are kept in a perpetual state of political confusion.

Bendromeda Strain's picture

Antifa take both their name and their political philosophy from the group of the same name that used to physically attack moderate socialists of the SPD in Weimar Germany. They beat up leftists much more than so called fascists. Probably because the brown shirts kicked their asses more often than not. The KPD and their Antifaschiste Aktion terror wing popped up again in different form in the GDR after the war.

RedBaron616's picture

Actually, intellectual giant in your own mind, the so called antifa is NOT "a modern leftist political movement". There is no right and left. There are those for freedom and liberty and there are those who despise both. It is simple as that. It is why Hitler and Stalin were more alike than apart. Both wanted total control.

Also, calling others "ignorant fuckwits" simply means that you have difficulty expressing an idea without abusing those who espouse such an idea.

Good day. Over and Out.

"It is why Hitler and Stalin were more alike than apart. Both wanted total control."

Oh for fuck's sake, that tired old bullshit again? 2008 called, it wants its retarded political ideas back.

RedBaron616's picture

In what way were they different? They both killed millions of people. Okay, Hitler killed Jews and Stalin killed Russians, but they were all human. Stalin had everything under government control, owned lock, stock, and barrel. Hitler let the owners THINK they owned their plants, but he told them what to do and when to do it. Both were totalitarians. Both loved secret police and hated Christianity.

I see that you didn't bother to dispute this with any actual facts. The phony nonsense about Far Left and Far Right is just sheer nonsense. Both are cut from the same cloth. You love liberty and freedom or you don't. Left and Right are just artificial constructs.

What for your facts.

Point taken, upvote, but I don't think JJ was implying that these SJW's were actually card carrying members of the NSDAP that closed shop in 1945. We all know what he means, and are not in danger of misunderstanding history due to his appropriation of the slur "Nazi." He was using it as a slur too. Don't hit me.
