James Woods Banned From Twitter As Silicon Valley Zaps Conservative 2020 Influencers

Outspoken conservative actor James Woods has been banned from Twitter for more than a week after he tweeted "If you try to kill the King, you best not miss’ #HangThemAll" - an apparent reference to the Mueller report.

Woods's girlfriend Sara Miller tweeted a screenshot of Twitter's account suspension, which cites "targeted harassment" as the reason.

In September, Woods was temporarily suspended for posting a satirical meme which very clearly parodies a Democratic advertisement campaign, encouraging liberal men to "make a woman's vote worth more" by staying home. 

On Friday, President Trump tweeted: "So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!"

According to Breitbart's James Caruso, Twitter appears to have two sets of standards, and has given many on the left a pass for much, much worse behavior. Via Breitbart

  • Twitter allowed a number of verified accounts to participate in doxxing and violent threats against teenagers from Covington Catholic high school in January.
  • Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) was on the receiving end of vicious sexist Twitter abuse after she defended Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
  • Actor Peter Fonda said that Barron Trump should be taken away from his Melania and put in a cage with pedophiles. Fonda also called for Kirstjen Nielsen to be whipped. He later apologized.
  • Hollywood star Jim Carrey posted a drawing of Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. getting bludgeoned to death by an elephant last year. The tweet is still up.
  • In 2016, various accounts called for and cheered on the shooting of police officers.

Meanwhile, on Thursday Facebook unilaterally banned several conservative influencers from its platform - 'balancing it out' with documented anti-Semite and Democrat ally, Louis Farrakhan. 

The conservatives banned include Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer and Paul Nehlen, who were labeled "extremists" and "dangerous." 

While Watson had earlier said on an Infowars broadcast soon after the ban "I don’t have the money to sue Facebook, and I don’t want to," he tweeted on Friday that he has the "best media lawyers in London looking over the Facebook issue," adding "I am not an "extremist" or a "dangerous person" and won't be defamed as one."

Earlier on Friday, President Trump fired off a barrage of tweets decrying the censorship. 

If this keeps up, there's only going to be one side of the conversation going into 2020.
