It’s no secret that Twitter generally supports, protects, and panders to Democrats. The progressive social network unabashedly limits, shadow-bans, suspends, and often completely bans conservative accounts for saying things that get “out of line” in their collectively leftist view. But sometimes, the unhinged nature of the platform creeps out beyond the constraints of their own rules and suspends people based on harmless jokes.
Such is the case of The Resurgent’s Erick Erickson. His Tweet was, “Elizabeth Warren set to introduce the Wrecking American Prosperity Under Marxism, of WAMPUM Act, whereby she gives everything away for free.”
This Tweet was deemed “Hateful Conduct.”
Now you lock people out for making a JOKE? And a funny one at that. This is about Warren’s political policies. This is getting ridiculous. pic.twitter.com/dD9ajrF7Rw

There is no rational, intelligent American who could read Erickson’s Tweet and come away thinking it was promoting violence against, threatening, or harassing Warren based on any of the protected classes they list. It’s not even debatable.
Here’s their list again in case you can’ see the Tweet:
Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
This is Twitter violating its own hateful conduct policy by harassing Erick Erickson because they disagreed with his politics. It was a joke, and not an exceptionally provocative one by any stretch of the imagination. It’s outrageous.

PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
