Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, December 2, 2021
American Renaissance and Jared Taylor are not allowed on Twitter. Neither our organization nor our founder ever violated the platform’s rules. Unfortunately, our lawsuit to reclaim our account failed. Mr. Taylor decided on a strategic retreat because another plaintiff would have a better chance of winning in the politically biased courts.
Nonetheless, we will probably look back on Jack Dorsey’s tenure at Twitter with fond nostalgia. The founder is leaving Twitter and will be replaced by Chief Technology Officer Parag Agrawal. While Mr. Dorsey once considered himself part of the “free speech wing of the free speech party” (at least jokingly), his replacement has no such scruples. “Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment,” Mr. Agrawal has said, “but our role is to serve a healthy public conversation and our moves are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation.” The “times have changed,” he said. Mr. Agrawal also tweeted a quote from the left-wing “Daily Show” in 2010 which suggests that he isn’t too fond of white people.
“If they are not gonna make a distinction between muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists.”
— Parag Agrawal (@paraga) October 26, 2010
Admittedly, the quote above is satire. Yet soon after Mr. Agrawal took over, Twitter introduced a change to its “private information policy.” “When we are notified by individuals depicted, or by an authorized representative, that they did not consent to having their private image or video shared, we will remove it.” However, Twitter also said it will “assess the context in which the content is shared” and in certain cases may allow unauthorized video and photographs to remain on Twitter.
Furthermore, “we would take into consideration whether the image is publicly available and/or is being covered by mainstream/traditional media.” This could lead to the mainstream media having a de facto monopoly over the way news is reported on the platform. Independent video that captures rioting or looting could be removed, while biased journalists who work for “mainstream” sites could craft their narratives without fear. All we can do is wait and see.
For now, let’s examine what is presumably the “healthy public conversation” that Twitter blesses on its platform.
A bluecheck “racial justice advocate”:
Why can’t Republicans just accept that the “whiteness” they so very cherish will be bred out of the human race?

From a conversation on Twitter Spaces, and I quote: “I am for the white genocide, I am for the total erasure of the white race, you don’t have to chop this up, yes, I am for all of you white bitches dying like flies.”
Holy shit they aren’t even trying to hide their racism. This is psychotic pic.twitter.com/sF6BXunFDT

Another conversation in which a black speaker says that he attended a protest to “f**k up some white people.”

Highlights from Twitter Space ‘Why Do White People Exist ????”

Somehow, I can’t get myself worked up about this one. Instructive nonetheless:

Here’s a non-white claiming she’s “hexing” white people.
Saw a lot of white people doing their cute not traumatic “Ancestry Story” on TikTok so I wanted to share the reality of doing “ancestry” as a Black American! Yaaafuckyallaayyyy 🤗 pic.twitter.com/DtEMSqnmNa

We need to be on guard against bad juju.
A jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse, which prompted a liberal meltdown. It is still going on. At a recent rally at Arizona Statue University, a non-white student called Mr. Rittenhouse a “white supremacist killer” and a “descendent of white Americans who killed black and brown people.”

That’s what affirmative action gets you.
For most Americans, Thanksgiving is a time for prayer and celebration. For our opponents, it’s something else:

Much of the Thanksgiving story is a myth riddled with historical inaccuracies. https://t.co/iVYZM3EoZt

Again, the underlying premise behind all this is that it would’ve been better if whites had never come to America. Really, this is simply another way of saying that it would be better if America never existed.
Showing up to Thanksgiving at your racist relatives’ house is an endorsement of their racism. No matter what you want to think, showing up shows support. Do what you want, just know it’s not “allyship” or whatever.

This thanksgiving I’m thankful for all the kids who’ll get to record their racist uncle bragging about 1/6 so they can turn his racist ass in to the FBI

In Waukesha, Wisconsin, a black man drove into a Christmas parade, killing at least six people. Suspect Darrell Brooks Jr. has a long history of promoting hatred against white people. Nonetheless, he says he feels “demonized” and his mother says that he was failed by a broken system. Waukesha police have already ruled out terrorism. Prosecutors have not filed hate-crime charges, something that the National Justice Party protested last week.
In Charlottesville, James Fields killed one person during a chaotic situation enabled by state and local authorities. It has become a historic event and was supposedly the reason Joe Biden decided he needed to run for president. In contrast, the Waukesha massacre, which seems far more straightforward and inexcusable, has already faded into the background. On social media, mainstream media outlets frame the attack like it was an accident, or that the car itself was to blame.
Waukesha will hold a moment of silence today, marking one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring scores of others.https://t.co/QMNccpBI0y

The Washington Post initially tweeted that it was a “tragedy caused by an SUV.”
But for public pushback, the framing of issues that run counter to a liberal narrative will always be framed like the original tweet on the left, not the more honest tweet on the right. pic.twitter.com/Ti0EOrnh7t

The Chicago Tribune called it simply a “crash,” a far different line than it took in 2017.
The @chicagotribune called the Waukesha attack a “crash” & downplayed it by saying the suspect was at the “scene of domestic disturbance” beforehand.
They called the 1 person who died in the Charlottesville attack a “martyr”, said that the attacker “plowed his car into a crowd”. pic.twitter.com/sI3oSGnUiF

Other media organizations also simply called it a “crash.” Of course, some independent journalists might find more information about the suspect and his long history of anti-white hatred.
However, under Twitter’s new regime, posting it might cost someone his account.
