Twitter now considers objective, verifiable facts ban-worthy hate speech. At least, the pesky facts that woke liberal activists don’t like.
Apparently, dissident gay journalist Andy Ngo, editor-at-large at the Post Millennial, ought to have known that our Twitter overlords wouldn’t permit him to cite facts disputing the transgender oppression narrative. Ngo made the mistake of daring to question Chelsea Clinton and the left-wing activist organization Human Rights Campaign for peddling the pervasive myth that transgender people are the subjects of mass hate crimes and identity-targeted murder.
Of course, while all of these deaths are tragic, most of these people were not targeted or murdered on the basis of their identity. Rather, they just happened to be transgender and they were murdered. So Ngo questioned this dubious narrative, as to both murder rates and the fact that many are carried out not by evil cisgender white males but by black men.
According to the Post Millennial, he tweeted, “The US is one of the safest countries for trans people. The murder rate of trans victims is actually lower than that for cis population. Also, who is behind the murders? Mostly black men.”
For this, Twitter temporarily banned him from tweeting, retweeting, or using most Twitter functions other than scrolling. The company tried to silence the journalist, but he’s not taking it lying down.
