After 16 Days of Censorship, Twitter Unlocks the New York Post’s Account

Posted on | October 30, 2020 | 4 Comments

Twitter’s excuse was always dishonest:

Twitter backed down Friday in its battle with The Post and unlocked its main account after a two-week stalemate over the Hunter Biden exposé.
The move came after The Post refused Twitter’s demand that it delete six tweets that linked to stories that the company claimed — without any evidence — were based on hacked information.
The Post never budged, and kept the tweets on the account during the standoff.
In a series of tweets, the social-media giant said it was revising its “Hacked Materials Policy” and “updating our practice of not retroactively overturning prior enforcement.”
“Our policies are living documents,” said one of the tweets from @TwitterSafety.
“We’re willing to update and adjust them when we encounter new scenarios or receive important feedback from the public.”
Twitter arbitrarily cracked down on The Post and locked its account on Oct. 14.
The company claimed The Post violated its policy on sharing “hacked materials” by tweeting links to bombshell exclusives on Biden’s emails — without ever saying how it came to that conclusion.

Not that this means Twitter is now an honest company — they’re not — but this is a tacit admission of their dishonesty, and I suppose that after the election we’ll learn that Twitter’s censorship was ordered by the executives at behest of the Biden campaign. Meanwhile . . .

Look, I don’t want to give anyone hope that Trump will actually win. My belief is that bleak pessimism is the only rational stance toward this election. However, Democrats are worried sick:

Senior officials on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign are increasingly worried about insufficient Black and Latino voter turnout in key states like Florida and Pennsylvania with only four days until the election, according to people familiar with the matter.
Despite record early-vote turnout around the country, there are warning signs for Biden. In Arizona, two-thirds of Latino registered voters have not yet cast a ballot. In Florida, half of Latino and Black registered voters have not yet voted but more than half of White voters have cast ballots, according to data from Catalist, a Democratic data firm. In Pennsylvania, nearly 75% of registered Black voters have not yet voted, the data shows.
The firm’s analysis of early vote numbers also show a surge of non-college educated White voters, who largely back President Donald Trump, compared to voters of color, who overwhelmingly support Biden.

My goal is not to make you think Trump can win — I have reached a Zen of despair — but rather to share the joy of watching Democrats suffer psychiatric trauma because of their fears Biden will lose.

Pure cruelty, you see. Nothing brings out my inner sadist quite as much as the thought of SJWs in the throes of a panic attack, haunted by visions of redneck Trump voters rampaging nationwide in big trucks.

Margaret Carlson says she’s suffering PTSD from Hillary’s loss in 2016.

We can enjoy the spectacle of liberal agony for four more days and then — dare we even hope? — four more years.
