Louis Farrakhan posted a video clip on Twitter where he attacked Jews. The social network has yet to take down the video (big surprise), but one man is speaking up. Now, people are questioning why the social network is allowing such disgusting content on their platform.
Louis Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam. He enjoys the support of numerous political leaders. That includes Democrats like Barack Obama and Maxine Waters. Farrakhan has a long history of spewing racist and anti-Semitic remarks during his speeches.
Recently, he posted a simply vile video where he compared Jewish people to termites. Despite the obvious hate directed at an entire group of people, Twitter has refused to take the video down.
Keep in mind, Twitter has been on a tear lately, outright banning any conservative for posting a harmless meme that makes fun of liberals. If you post the “NPC meme” just once on your Twitter feed, you’ll most likely be banned for life for “dehumanizing” liberals. Yet Louis Farrakhan can openly call Jewish people insults and get away with it.
Think about that.
As shock over this double stand spreads, people are starting to speak out. U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell is one of many who refuses to let Farrakhan — and Twitter — get away with spreading racism.
U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell slammed racist and anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Wednesday over a highly inflammatory tweet that compared Jews to termites…
“Every day in Berlin I look out the Embassy window and see the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe,” Grenell tweeted. “We must reject this kind of rhetoric or we betray our promise to Never Forget. #disgusting” [Source: Daily Wire]

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that Twitter does not believe in Free Speech — if you’re a conservative. Republicans and Trump supporters can count on one thing: being censored, abused, and banned by the social network.
However, liberals or groups protected by liberals can enjoy increasing amounts of free rein on the site. Countless left-wing users, many of them professionals in various industries, spread hate against conservatives. They daydream about Republicans in Washington dying painful deaths. These users curse out anyone that supports Trump, using the vilest language imaginable.
Yet they are never called out by Twitter who increasingly tightens their own rules on “hate speech.”
When pressed for an answer about Farrakhan’s dehumanizing video, Twitter claimed they had yet to implement their new rules.

Just in from a @Twitter spokesperson: Louis Farrakhan's tweet comparing Jews to termites is not in violation of the company's policies. The policy on dehumanizing language has not yet been implemented.
So if you want to compare Jews to rats/insects – get it in while you can!

Really? You need a waiting period before you ban such an obviously racist tweet? Twitter has made it clear they do not want Free Speech on their platform. Like the rest of the socialists in Silicon Valley, they hate our country’s values, particularly our Bill of Rights.
Yet when someone deliberately violates their own rules, Twitter does nothing. It’s simply because Farrakhan is on the left side of the political spectrum.
Richard Grenell’s statement echoes numerous Twitter users who have grown sick and tired of the social network’s hypocrisy. It’s no wonder usage on the once contagious platform is plummeting.
