Twitter’s Colossal Fail: Star Of David Is Hate Speech, BY GIDON BEN-ZVI


As we avoid Twitter today and tomorrow because of Twitter's allowing gross antisemitism to prosper all over its platform, it's important to recall that for a brief time, Twitter called the Star of David "hate speech."

The Star of David has been deemed “hateful imagery” by Twitter, which is locking the accounts of users who display it in their profile pictures.  As revealed by the the Campaign Against Antisemitism,  this was the message users received from Twitter:
We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically for: Violating our rules against posting hateful imagery. You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. As a result, we have locked your account.
The banned images ranged from a white Star of David in a graffiti style, to a superimposition of the modern blue star on the flag of Israel spliced with the yellow star Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis, to a montage of yellow stars.

There was also the anti-Jewish #JewishPrivilege campaign that had to be turned on its head by Jews on Twitter because Twitter gatekeepers didn't think it was worthy of their attention.

In the end, Twitter apologized for the Star of David controversy.

Twitter added: “While the majority of cases were correctly actioned, some accounts highlighted recently were mistakes and have now been restored.”

This is another demonstration of the fact that, for the most part, Jews (well, some Jews) are the only ones Jews can truly depend on.
