Liberal Fascist Alert: Organized Progressives using Twitter’s Spam block/report to suspend Conservative Accounts [Darleen Click]

… And they brag about it, too.

As our late-night-owl readers know, after Twitter reinstated conservative activist Chris Loesch’s account in the wee hours of Sunday night/Monday morning, the progressive flag-spam lynch mob — a vicious group of free speech-squelching Twitter users who trigger automatic suspensions by falsely “mass reporting” conservatives as “spammers” — took him down again and again. […]

And you will not be surprised to learn that at least one of the Twitter libs identified as a flag-spam ringleader also happens to be spearheading a Stop Rush Limbaugh effort online.

While Twitter executives sleep on the job, conservatives online are battling not only Loesch’s suspension, but the suspension of more than a dozen — and possibly dozens, if not hundreds more — innocent conservative social-media users who appear to have been maliciously targeted by Twitter abusers. The system is obviously broken and being exploited by vigilantes who oppose everything the engagement-enhancing ethos of Twitter stands for (or is supposed to stand for, anyway).

I’m a sporadic Twitter user, but was in the midst of this last night. It is amazing for me to observe for how long the “KillZimmerman” Twitter account, with direct solicitations of his murder in the tweets, was allowed to remain active, but conservative accounts are being suspended because Progressive Fascists are exploiting an algorithm set up to control pr0n and spam.

They even believe they “own” certain hashtags and target conservatives who engage, mockingly or seriously, in “their” space.

Sister Toldjah was able to uncover one of the “hit lists” and, scroll down and you’ll find me and Serr8d on the list.

These are Pelosi “let’s get rid of the First Amendment” Brownshirts. Nothing less. And it is going to get worse.

  1. Have you contacted Twitter about this? I suspect they need to be absolutely snowed in with complaints about this, before they will budge.

  2. They are getting snowed, I’m sure. What they’ll do about it remains to be seen.

  3. Thanks, Darleen.

    The document won’t disappear into the Memory Hole after all.

  4. Pick a proggtard and retaliate in kind.

  5. Pablo is on the list too.

  6. this isn’t really a first amendment thingy but you shouldn’t report people just for saying stuff you don’t like

  7. I think any automated system for suspending accounts based on an “algorithm” invites precisely this sort of abuse.

    Here’s a very simple suggestion for the Twitter folks: Once an actual human has reviewed an account that was suspended by the “algorithm” and overruled the “algorithm” to reinstate the account… let that act of overruling the “algorithm” be permanent: Never again should that account be subject to automatic suspension based on the “algorithm”. Instead of suspending such accounts, they should be flagged for a human administrator to look at.

    Suggestion the Second: When an automatically-suspended account is manually reinstated, every account that participated in flagging it gets its own “flag reputation” down-checked, so that the next time the same hundred people flag an account, it also is referred to a human admin rather than auto-suspended. When the same account is used in several such mob actions, that account’s ability to flag others falls to zero and is ignored.

    [Suggestion the Zeroth: Do away with the automatic suspension altogether. When enough people flag tweets as spam, let the human admin look at the account’s activity and make a decision. Let that human write up a coherent explanation for why the account is being suspended.]

  8. That sounds like a classically liberal solution you have there Monster. Odds on Twitter implementing?

  10. This is what they do. Vile scum, they are.

  11. Manny Kant taught that politics is transcendent, and here we are, transcended right into the gutter. Ha! Joke’s on you Manny.

  12. So, the Obama 2012 theme is “Forward.” As in Great Leap Forward?

    That’s pretty bold.

  13. The @allanbrauer mentioned posts at “Angry Black Lady Chronicles” which has sidebar feeds for @AngryBlackLady and the hash tag #TFY. His own blog and business is here.

  14. It’s possible that there isn’t a particularly good solution available for this sort of abuse. Even if a very small percentage of people try to game the system that number might be high enough to make it unprofitable to hire enough people to make case by case decisions.

    Of course, if Twitter becomes both infected with spam and regularly allows bad actors to get innocents blocked that might eventually destroy their profitability as well by completely ruining the user experience.

    They might simply have discovered an inherent problem that took a little while to emerge.

  16. Twitter the new alt-usenet.

  17. They always try to control speech. This can go both ways.

    Be Breitbart.

  18. Notice to cob-loggers: NO inflammatory post titles please! Since each post at pw feeds to Twitter, it’s our duty to be, wait for it, preemptive intentionalists.

    If you want to be all hatey and stuff, do it in comments: F*CKING LEFTIST FASCISTS!

    You can’t make this stuff up.

    Exactly. Fuck them, and fuck this passive whiny victim bullshit.

  21. Of course, if Twitter becomes both infected with spam and regularly allows bad actors to get innocents blocked that might eventually destroy their profitability as well by completely ruining the user experience.

    Yep, unless they come up with an elegant solution, say some way to economically implement Monster’s system of checks and balances then I’d say this is the beginning of the end for twitter.

  22. OT, I’ve been catching up on Sowell. He’s been cranking out some beauties.

  23. My post titles only go if I click the tweet button on the publish page. Which, of course, I do.

  24. Maybe Twitter uses the same “algorithm” as does Eric Holder.

  25. I repeat: Twitter is for Twits

  26. Chris Loesch is back and they’ve suspended some of the accounts that reported him as spam. Which…

  28. Libs are pretty intent on silencing the conservative message. You rarely, if ever, see conservatives going to such extremes (or any extremes really) to keep liberals from spewing their beliefs. I think they fear the message, personally.

  29. mojo @12:26 Twitter’s like blogging, circa 2005 or so. And evolving even faster. A nice sharp tool, if it’s used correctly.

    Noticed a certain New York Congressperp’s been missing lately, have you?

  30. I think they fear the message, personally.

    They don’t fear the message per se, they fear Not Controlling The Narrative.

  31. Everybody tied up with their May Day preparations?

    I cannot find the study right now and I’ll keep looking, but this 77% gender pay gap is complete bullshit. If you control for time with the company and time in that job, there is no statistically significant difference in men and women’s pay.

    If there was a 23% pay differential, don’t you think us greedy capitalists would be firing dudes and hiring chicks?

  32. Read a comment on another forum that the EPA dude got crucified hissownself today.

  33. Noticed a certain New York Congressperp’s been missing lately, have you?

    Or that a certain POTUS was telling dog eating jokes the other night?

  34. Not quite what I was looking for but I’m getting closer.

  35. Pelosi caught lying about being briefed on waterboarding.

  36. This is kinda funny:

    Obama dumbs down speeches as campaign heats up, WFB analysis shows […]

    Obama addressed the coeds at the Universities of North Carolina, Colorado, and Iowa at a sixth grade reading level […]

    Obama’s State of the Union addresses peaked at a 10th grade level in 2009 and declined to an eighth-grade level by 2012. Bush, on the other hand, scored consistently above the 10th grade level with his State of the Union addresses, including a high of 11.84 for his 2005 address. […]

    In the past two years, Obama’s major national addresses have fluctuated between grade seven (Gabriel Giffords; September jobs speeches) and grade eight (his April 11, 2012 remarks on the Buffett Rule).

  37. Pelosi’s waterboarding briefing was likely in the form of a short email from media matters.

  38. I don’t tweet myself, but has Michael Vick said anything about raising Pitbulls for the white house kitchen?

  39. All riiiiight! I love hanging out with peeps on lists. I think I should do a FOIA request to see what Uncle says about me.

  40. Q: What’s the difference between a pitbull and a hockey mom?

    A: King Putt would never eat a hockey mom!

  41. If Rodriguez is right, it means that Pelosi stood up in a Capitol Hill news conference and lied with a straight face to the American people…

    This isn’t exactly what I would call breaking news.

  42. Elvin Lim, an associate professor of government at Wesleyan University and the author of The Anti-Intellectual Presidency: The Decline of Presidential Rhetoric from George Washington to George W. Bush, is not surprised that Obama has dumbed down his language.

    “This is a guy who is a constitutional law professor, but the structure of the presidency is such that you have to go anti-intellectual,” he said.

    There are still people out there who think this pinhead was a fucking Con Law Professor? God these people are idiots.

  43. There is already direct evidence that he was not a professor, was at best a guest lecturer against the wishes of some of the faculty, and did little in the classroom.

    However, they have a narrative that Obama is a Sooooooperrrrrrrrrrr Geeeeeeenyusssss, so they want to keep that going.

  44. there is a biological basis for all behavior the right has lost control of academe because the right is anti-science, anti-intellectual curiosity, anti-egalitarian, and also dogmatic supernaturalists go to bible college Dan Collins entropy demographics Jeff

  45. My impression of a nishi comment.

  46. God these people are idiots.

  47. Spooky, Mike.

  48. Spooky, Mike.

    Thanks, Leigh. She’s actually pretty easy to imitate, since most of her comments seemed to be a repetition of about 30 stock words in random arrangements.

  49. nr this time instead of this, the People control both sides of the riot line.

  50. I never really had much use for twitter. Sometimes I read tweets from video game designers who are working on a video game I am interested in. I read Jeff G’s tweets every now and then. But I don’t get twitter and don’t think about it much. I think about Facebook more and frankly Facebook is wearing pretty thin lately.

    I kind of want everything to go back to usenet sometimes. ‘Cause I’m an ass.

  51. I want to help Americans of every race, creed and heritage keep and build that sense of community which is at the heart of America, for a decent neighborhood is part of that dream.

    We will work to strengthen the small business sector which creates most of the new jobs we need for our people. Small business needs relief from government paperwork, relief from over-regulation, relief from a host of governmentally-created problems that defeat the effort of creative men and women. A chance to invest, build and produce new wealth is part of the dream.

    But restoring the American dream requires more than restoring a sound, productive economy, vitally important as that is. It requires a return to spiritual and moral values, values so deeply held by those who came here to build a new life. We need to restore those values in our daily life, in our neighborhoods and in our government’s dealings with the other nations of the world.

    These are the values inspiring those brave workers in Poland. The values that have inspired other dissidents under Communist domination. They remind us that where free unions and collective bargaining are forbidden, freedom is lost. They remind us that freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. You and I must protect and preserve freedom here or it will not be passed on to our children. Today the workers in Poland are showing a new generation not how high is the price of freedom but how much it is worth that price.

    I want more than anything I’ve ever wanted, to have an administration that will, through its actions, at home and in the international arena, let millions of people know that Miss Liberty still “Lifts her lamp beside the golden door.” Through our international broadcasting stations — the Voice of America, Radio Free Europe, and the others — let us send, loud and clear, the message that this generation of Americans intends to keep that lamp shining; that this dream, this last best hope of man on earth, this nation under God, shall not perish from the earth. We will instead carry on the building of an American economy that once again holds forth real opportunity for all, we shall continue to be a symbol of freedom and guardian of the eternal values that so inspired those who came to this port of entry.

    Let us pledge to each other, with this Great Lady looking on, that we can, and so help us God, we will make America great again.

  52. So, has anybody done Barak Obama as Bubba from Forest Gump yet or would that be racist?

    ” Dog pie….dog chowder….dog soup…dog on rye….dog and beans….dog pudding….roast dog…. “

  53. Funny and against Obama so definitely racist.

  54. How about a picture of comedian John Pinnette doing his angry Chinese buffet owner voice and he’s scowling at Obama in a booth with a big plate of food and lots of empty plates of scarp and he’s saying ” You here four years! FOUR YEARS! You go home NOW! ”


  55. We shall go on to the end. We shall MOCK THEM fight in France, we shall MOCK THEM fight on the seas and oceans, we shall MOCK THEM fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall MOCK THEM fight on the beaches, we shall MOCK THEM fight on the landing grounds, we shall MOCK THEM fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall MOCK THEM fight ; we shall never surrender,
