Yesterday, after America’s biggest tech giant bosses were grilled by a US senate committee, a tweet was posted by Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
In it, he asked: ‘Why is it a crime to raise doubts about the Holocaust?’
Under normal circumstances, one of the world’s most powerful leaders directly questioning the very existence of a Nazi-orchestrated genocide of over six million Jews during WWII is the kind of hideously inflammatory statement that a major American newspaper like the New York Post would have wanted to report on and respond to.
Not least because New York is home to 1.1 million Jews, the largest Jewish community anywhere in the world outside of Israel.
But the Post couldn’t respond.
Not on the same platform, anyway.
Because Twitter has disgracefully locked out the Post’s account for two weeks after it reported allegations of financial impropriety surrounding Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter based on the contents of his laptop.
So, Khamenei was able to spew his vile Holocaust-denying filth to his 836,000 followers without any fear of factual rebuttal by a newspaper representing many of the people who would find his comments most offensive.
Just as he was able to tweet on previous occasions that Israel’s a ‘cancerous growth’ which must be ‘uprooted and destroyed’, and this direct threat: ‘We will support and assist any nation or any group anywhere who opposes and fights the Zionist regime, and we do not hesitate to say this.’
Why has Twitter allowed him to do all this without any form of censorship?
