Twitter Bans Star of David as hateful
WND ^ | 7/21/2020 | WND Staff

Posted on 07/23/2020 1:50:17 PM PDT by Pharmboy

Twitter is locking the accounts of users who display the Star of David in their profile image or header, deeming it "hateful imagery."

The London-based nonprofit Campaign Against Antisemitism said several Twitter users have contacted them recently to report that their accounts had been locked because various images of the Star of David violated the social media platform's "rules against posting hateful imagery," the Jerusalem Post reported.

"You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. As a result, we have locked your account," Twitter wrote to the users.

The Post reported the offending images "ranged from a white Star of David in a graffiti style, to a superimposition of the modern blue star on the flag of Israel spliced with the yellow star Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis, to a montage of yellow stars."

It’s WND, so the good news is that it’s mostly false.

They don’t let people post the “yellow star” because it was being used by neo-Nazis, but other than that, you are free to have Israeli flags or Mogen Davids to your heart’s content.

I doubt he does that, particularly before the election. I would love to him post the Star of David in a tweet.

I’m sure Twitter has no problems with Nazi symbols or Antifa symbols. And for sure BLM is perfectly fine, too.

amazing, a respected symbol of the Jewish People who brought the world teachings such as,

you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
Leviticus 19:18

and
Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
John 13:34

Truly, someone at Twitter is either a pure-bred Nazi or else simply NUTS!

I really hope this is not true. I’m not even Jewish, and it depresses me to think this is happening.
Nothing good can come from such willful self delusion.

Nothing 'hateful' about a symbol of an ideology that was responsible for over 100MM murders in the 20th century: the COMMUNIST HAMMER AND SICKLE.
