Skip to comments.‘Kill Kavanaugh’ Tops Twitter Search and Hashtag Suggestions
Posted on 10/01/2018 8:47:21 AM PDT by Mrs. Don-o
Typing kill into Twitters search function currently returns a shocking result at the top of its search suggestions: #KillKavanaugh. Its also currently the third autocompleted suggestion in searches for ki and the fourth suggestion in searches for k as of this writing.
Thats right by typing a single letter into search, Twitter is suggesting that its users might be interested in a hashtag about the murder of a federal judge and SCOTUS nominee.
The search suggestion was spotted by Instapundit earlier today and has been confirmed by Breitbart News.
KillKavanaugh search suggestions were also observed by Breitbart News in seemingly harmless searches for ki and k.
In hashtag suggestions, #KillKavanaugh currently tops the list of suggestions when users type #Ki.
It can be argued that some but not all of these tweets are metaphorical, calling for the nomination to be killed rather than the person, in the same way that a piece of legislation might be metaphorically killed. But refusing to take action against those tweets would still be an example of Twitters double standards: the platform has in the past permanently banned free speech maximalist users when they employed similar metaphors, using the least charitable interpretation of their remarks.
Twitter has in the past been slow or unwilling to address abusive or violent tweets against conservatives and Republicans. When the daughters of Islam critic Pamela Geller were bombarded with abuse earlier this year, Twitter did nothing. In fact, some of the abusive tweets remain on the site, undeleted. In 2016, death threats against sitting Republican senators were allowed to remain on the platform for weeks.
Meanwhile, Twitter continues to permanently ban top conservative commentators and activists simply for posting unwelcome facts, severely hampering the conservative grassroots ability to mobilize supporters ahead of crucial elections...

Except when it's against Kavanaugh. In his case, they're %&**^$@%# selecting, platforming, promoting and highlighting it.
I said to my husband, "Now, what do you make of that?"
And my husband intoned, "You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and you believe whatever you want to believe...You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I'll show you how deep the rabbit hole goes."
Lots of prayer is needed for this courageous man and his family.
Obviously, this is the work of tolerant, fair-minded liberals.
This is not democrat vs republican, this is good vs evil, light vs darkness. If we don’t win we will be taking our first steps into a thousand years of darkness.
Twitter is a sewer that never finishes flushing.
Remember when Sarah Palin was blamed for the Gabby Gifford shooting because she put a crosshairs on a map?
I wonder if the FIB looked into how many high school “classmates” Merrick Garland “assaulted.
I keep encouraging libs to move to a country where they will be happier.
Theyve gone from killing babies to killing adults.
Yep. The leftist communist dems are pushing for CW-2. They really should be careful about what they wish for because they will be ended if they get their wish.
Maybe more stupidity on their part.
How must this man feel? He life HAS BEEN ruined. They’ve done it to him. Even if he’s confirmed, his life, and that of his family, will be worse than it otherwise would have been.
I called the illinois times about their “cartoon” and sent emails. I gave them a preview of hell.
I unequivocally condemn the hatred, anger and violence of the left. They started with going out at night and screaming at the moon. They harassed Trump staff in restaurants. And now this.
It’s mass hysteria. It’s insane. These people are dangerous to themselves and to the world.
Anyone remember all the protests and uproar and calls for killing the wise Latina????
And whats uo with this? After the Tucson shooting, the liberals told us we need to avoid any violent imagery or metaphors.
So aren’t these liberals with the kill Kavanaugh statement, violating their own rules?????
Our country is in a real bad place right now.
The only reason the left has been getting away with these crimes involving assault is they happen in leftist strongholds with leftist (communist) leadership protecting them.
When the field is leveled and we too have lawful protections preventing us from being arrested for protecting ourselves; the criminal leftists who commit assaults will be leveled (permanently) as well.
Being the cowardly bullies they are; the other leftist thugs will fold like a dropped wet sheet. They will find themselves alone in the wilderness because no one likes a bully. The rest of the cowardly roaches will crawl back into the cracks they came from grumbling something about fairness.
Most will tell you that it is necessary to save the country.
No the left is in a bad place now and falling fast.
The right and righteous arent.
Breitbart is silenced on Facebook too, I follow Nreitbart but noticed today none of their posts are on my feed.
