#FreeMattForney: A Study in Twitter’s Utter Hypocrisy
But those who disbelieved [in Islam] will have cut out for them garments of fire. Poured upon their heads will be scalding water.
On Saturday, December 5th, Matt Forney had his Twitter account suspended for tweets he had made a week ago regarding the recent terrorist attack in San Bernadino:
Harsh? Perhaps, but hardly inaccurate, as well as apt, given the context.
For those of you who are unaware, when news first broke of a shooting in San Bernadino, Left-wing agitators, including prominent members of the #BlackLivesMatter protests, initially blamed the shooting on “White Male Privilege” with hashtags such as #EndWhiteTerror, some even going so far as to argue that white men should have their Second Amendment rights restricted. When it was later revealed that the shooter and his wife were motivated by Islamic radicalism, they changed their tune. They now referred to it as a rampage, and stated that race and motivation didn’t matter – it was the guns themselves which somehow caused the crime.
This is coming a week after three were killed at a Colorado planned parenthood when a lone wolf with a history of clashing with law enforcement attacked one of their facilities; while his statements suggest that he was motivated by the recent revelations that Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts to the highest bidder, he acted independently of any organizations, and has been universally condemned.
Matt Forney, meanwhile, has been documenting the #BlackLivesMatter protests hands on. According to his reports (visit his channel for further coverage), the leaders of these marches reject all tone policing; in stark contrast to protests such as the Tea Party or the Million Man March – where strict, civilized standards of behaviour were demanded from all members – they are de facto handing over the protests to their most violent elements, and the ones in Chicago are on the verge of becoming riots.
What this all boils down to is a pair of mutually exclusive narratives being pushed by our Sybil-like media:
- Disgruntled White men are angry that their privilege has been taken away, and are reacting with violence due to their toxic, white masculinity, while under the influence of right-wing Hate Speech. Despite there being no organizations, no support, nor any clear or specific ideology uniting such diverse shooters as Elliot Roger, Dylan Roof, and Robert Dear, they are nonetheless proof of ongoing White Terrorism.
- The violent protests initiated by #BlackLivesMatter, and the ongoing attacks by Jihadists against Western citizens, have nothing to do with race, religion, or creed, despite the massive amounts of funding, organization, and ideological backing for their crimes.
This was the context in which Forney pointed out the blunt truth: that Blacks, Latinos, and Muslims are disproportionately prone to committing crime, and organizing to commit terrorist acts. These are simply the facts; it doesn’t matter whether you like them or not.
In response, Forney received thousands of tweets from SJWs – the champions of anti-bullying – insulting and threatening him, and on Saturday his twitter account was suspended.
Since then, friends and supporters have started the #FreeMattForney hashtag, calling out Twitter’s hypocrisy in this matter – that a victim of SJW mobbing is himself being accused of bullying. He didn’t seek these people out to offend them – they sought him out, and he merely responded to their rudeness in kind.
But since then the situation has escalated.
A twitter account impersonating Forney has begun stalking him, as well as his friends and family; the account has been attempting to dox any persons involved, no matter how remotely, and is currently threatening to put up signs in North Chicago bars accusing Forney of being a Racist/White Supremacist/Nazi, as well as in his own neighbourhood. He claims to be organizing with others behind the scenes, to have a gun and a conceal carry permit, and to add icing on the cake, many of these left wing agitators have been attempting to radicalize famous (and reputedly violent) Chicago drill rappers Chief Keef and Lil Reese against Forney.
This is textbook incitement to violence.
As usual, Twitter seems more concerned with appealing to the politically correct thugs on the left, by labelling anything they find offensive as Hate Speech, while completely ignoring actual incitement to violence, which was the whole (shoddy) legal premise for identifying something as Hate Speech in the first place! We desperately need a return to law and order in this country. We’ve let a minority of left-wing radicals dictate standards to us, while they run roughshod over natural rights and the rule of law. But the vast majority of Americans don’t support this, and it’s time for us to make our voices heard.Please contact @Twitter, @Support, and @Safety to express your disgust with their handling of this matter. Shout loud and clear at them; we out number the SJWs 100 to 1, it’s time to make Corporate America understand that.
