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.

Once Il Duck merges state and corporate power, a simple phone call to Twitter HQ will quickly rectify the situation.

Have you been living in a cave?  Corporate and government power have been merging for decades.

Congress should stop doing nothing, and should pass a law stipulating that internet communications operations serving the public interest shall provide free and open access.  Failure to do so will be a violation of Federal law, and will subject to owner of the internet communications operation to a $1 million per day fine.

Let's bankrupt the operators of these leftist socialist media.  Either they serve the full public interest, or they will be put out of existence.

yeah, all media outlets should allow all opinions and views on them.  I demand that Breitbart and Fox employ socialists and communists on their staff and give them at least 25% of the airtime/page space!

What I love about this is that it highlights the need for the First Amendment application to the cyber-public square.  The US Public bought and paid for the World Wide Web.  We own it.  The users of this system use it because WE THE PEOPLE let them use it.

That includes Twitter, Facefuck, Google, Youtube...all of them.  THey are operating in the public square at the pleasure of the US Public.  We can and should enforce the right of any entity to engage in Free Speech on any platform that engages the public and has an "open" sign for the public to use it.

I'm no lawyer but I don't think that argument holds up in court. I agree, our tax dollars invented and built the infrastructure but it was ultimately offered up to the piblic domain so in some cases (crowded theater yelling fire) there may be some restrictions but that's a slippery slope. Great conversation to have either way!

Expat's picture

First of all, you don't know how or why the account, if it is really her account, was suspended.  The First Amendment does not protect all speech.   There is protected speech (and writing) and unprotected speech (and writing).  For example, I can call you an ignorant asshole who sounds like some alt-right mullet-head. That is my right. But I cannot place an ad in a paper offering $100 to have your kneecaps broken.  See the difference.

So, until we know why the account was suspended, you can rant all you want but it's just ranting.

On the surface of it though, Look at her position, then don't you think if she committed some great offense that would be reported on?

Get real alt-left numskull!

I'll go with cyber version of masked black clad miscreants beating innocent people with bats and bike locks. I guess that is who you side with.

Expat's picture

Yeah, I think that if she committed some great offense it would be reported.  It has not.  Nor has Twitter or anyone other than alt-right sites reported on this.  And they only say it was a result of "alt-left" attacks. 

Out of curiosity, are all you right-wing Trumpeteers such pussies that you are terrified of left-wing tree huggers?  It seems like there is an awful lot of whining about them.  "Oh, they're coming for me!  Help!"  or "I am afraid to walk my own street because I might be attacked by a gay, liberal black man who wants to ask me out on a date because he thinks I am cute and swishy."

LOL

But I cant call a mewling, mincing libtard a faggot without hate laws being enacted.

I hate you isnt hate speech but faggot is?

Expat's picture

"Faggot" used in certain ways has negative and generally discriminatory connotations.    "I hate you" is not hate speech since it does not specify reasons, is purely personal, and implies no discrimination beyond the emotion.

So, no, you can't call someone a "faggot".  By the way, why did you choose "faggot"?  Repressed homosexual tendencies?  Issues with having been molested by an uncle or something?  LOL

By the way, why did you choose "faggot"?

probably because you're a faggot, Expat

Weak.  but I guess you are only marginally literate.  If you can't follow the thread, perhaps you should avoid commenting.  It only makes you look stupid.

You are right. Not all speech (expression) is protected.

LIST A - Here is the list of protected speech first:

  1. Indecency
  2. Profanity
  3. Sexual Deviancy
  4. Homosexual Promotion
  5. Blasphemy
  6. Defamations, lies, slanders
  7. Pedophilia
  8. etc

LIST B - Here is the list of unprotected free speech:

  1. The truth about anything, especially if it concerns jews, judaism, kaballah, talmud, zionist insurgency, israhell, jew holocaust, the REAL Christian Holocaust perpetrated by jews against Christians, the MIC, 9/11, Palestine, foreign policy, anti-globalism, nationalism, the IRS, 16th amendment, income tax, property tax, gold, silver, and the concurrent and directly related collapse of the republic, and all the the freedoms it's constitution was allegedly purported to preserve.

If you are an expert at List A, you get rewarded with huge sums of money, fame and promotions.

List B, you are shamed out of society, shunned by all, left for dead.

You're a racist asshole.  Thank you for reminding me that it is my right to say that.

Republican, libertarian, and 1st amendment fans that own Twitter stock should place sell orders for 2 cents a share, 1 share at a time!

What did she say?  Seems like that would be something important to put in this article..

indio007's picture

Nothing. She works for Trump. That's the crime.

Rebelrebel7's picture

I searched and couldn't find it. From what I have read, it is just because she is Trump's communications director and there was a coordinated campaign to excommunicate her and remove her 1st amendment rights because that is what fascists believe in and fight for!

Abaco's picture

The first amendment doesn't restrict individuals or private enterprises.  It is a restraint on government,. Read the damn consitution before spouting off your ignorance.

Rebelrebel7's picture

No shit Sherlock, a true American respects that right in their business practices. I've read the constitution numerous times  and know it quite well.

Perhaps you didn't know that the internet is not privately owned.

Twitter is using a the vehicle in the public domain,  the internet for its business, which could not exist without the internet.

Who even uses twitter? 

KTV Escort's picture

Instagram works for me, I follow a few select like-minded individuals and organizations, shit I post has an audience, and I don't really care that Facebook, which I detest, owns it. The "sponsored content" is minimal, and the filters for editing photos are quite good. Easy to post vids too.

Couldn't give a fuck about twitter, or the American regime, or that orange thing that's in charge....but I'd hit that Hope Hicks!

Just that.

Oh look, you made false reports on a meaningless medium and tricked them into suspending someone else's account. Says more about those making false reports. Just a bunch of sniveling children.

If the shoe were on ther other foot and it was conservatives doing it and Holder was AG, he would have shut them down and seized all their servers.

Sessons has to be the most incompetent AG in my lifetime.

It's a bloody shame this so called 'alt-left' can't target Golden Boy's Twitter account to achieve the same results.

Keep your eye on Jack Posobiec. He is a sharp guy and a fighter of all things leftist. I know him personally and fought many a battle with him against the corrupt Philadelphia machine (both Republican and Democrat). Jack also speaks fluent Mandarin FYI.

hanekhw's picture

Mmmmmm. Igniting a rash of calls and texts BETWEEN the WH Commminications Director the WH Chief of Staff and all the government agencies responsible for regulation and oversight of Twitter. Way to go Twitter. You'll be needing a new 'Communications Director' yourself soon as well as a whole bunch of government relations staff. Just from a purely business perspective I'm hard put to remember a worse screw up. But you hire other people's screw ups don't you?

She fat? I can't make out from these pics. If not, she's pretty fuckable.

Not to steal a line from former President Kennedy but I think Trump should break Adolph Twittler, YouHaveBeenShadowBannedTube, GoogleUberAlles and CIA-zon into a thousand pieces, as well as the six big firms that own 90% or whatever it was of all print and televised media.

did this woman actually do anything that justified reporting her?

or is it just another social media mugging?

Hillarys Server's picture

I think they're blaming it on Adolph Twittler's algos or the number of complaints or something. The same algos that let death threat tweets and ISIS sites stay up. The algos only work against conservatives.

Just read that Amazon is deleting all one star reviews of the Chucky doll she-devil's new book too.

These are not only monopolies but evil monopolies. It's like if your phone didn't allow you to say anything bad about Hillary and there was only one phone company.

Seeing how bad things are now, if Hillary or another alt-left candidate wins in 2020 freedom is complete toast.

FreedomWriter's picture

Don't be silly, clicks are for kids.  If you want to have some fun with Amazon, give the book a 5 star review and tell people what you really think in the comments. Works every time.  In fact, I think it is time to look up "What Happened" right now.

To Hell In A Handbasket's picture

lol. This is where both the left and right inevitably lead when they don't like what they hear, or what they see. This is about power and the left lost, so they are lashing out like a fucking spoilt child. I truly pity them, I really do.

The Alt-Right and especially Alt-Left are leading us towards Totalitarianism and the Libtards who I blame the most, because at least they once held the moral high-ground, cannot even see it. SHAME ON THEM!

Seems to me this woid "alt" implies an "alternative".

The prog left are NOT alternatives.

They are, instead, mad.

I was reing somewhere a research paper, saying, that twiter has 40% fake accounts

and 90% fake cliks.

What is the purpose of going there, if they are totally fradulent?

opport.knocks's picture

LOLz - seems everyone took the bait (and switch) - that was a fake account that twitter took down.

Try this one... https://twitter.com/Hopehickss though it is inactive for a while.

Wow, good job alt left, big win there.

These alt left guys are bad ass.
