Twitter: Mind your far-left manners or get marched away

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testifyingTwitter has revised its "hateful conduct" policy, tossing out science and biology, and moving even closer to the day when truth is subjective and facts are forbidden.

George Orwell realized it in his novel, "1984," by concluding that it's impossible to win the battle when the other side controls the language.

The public is slowly learning that Twitter has reformed its official policy: Anyone who refuses to use a so-called "preferred pronoun" --- known as "misgendering" --- or uses a person's original birth name – called "deadnaming" – may be kicked off the platform for good. 

Dan Gainor of MRC Tech points out the stricter policy was enacted after the media platform went after an unusual target. 

using Twitter (tweeting)"This was actually started by a liberal Canadian feminist woman," he advises, "who was complaining about some trans issues and got shut down repeatedly for saying that men aren't women."

A story by National Review  identified the transgressor as feminist writer Meghan Murphy, whose account was suspended until she deleted the offending tweets. When she did and the account was reinstated, she went after Twitter calling it a "multi-billion doallar company" that is "censoring facts," and the media giant's minders shut down her account for good.

"Look at what China is doing right now," Gainor warns, referring to the authoritarian government grading its citizens with "social scores" that reward complicity. "This is where bad governments can go and that's what these social media companies are trending toward."

Big BrotherTwitter has made headlines in recent days, too, for pulling the account of Jesse Kelly, a U.S. Marine veteran and former congressional candidate, wthout explanation. 

Kelly, in fact, wrote a Federalist op-ed in August  warning the public that Twitter wouldn't stop with suspending Alex Jones. He wrote:

While it is not surprising to see the jackals on the left cheer at the burning of books, one would hope folks on the right would look in the mirror and realize their time is coming soon. The leftists will not stop (and did not stop) at nutty Alex Jones, because they do not think you are much different from him. 

A more recent story at The Federalist  reports that congressional lawmakers are eyeing Twitter's CEO, Jack Dorsey (pictured at top), for allegedly lying under oath when he denied the social media giant censors political viewpoints. 

"This is the left," Gainor warns. "They've gone full-on Orwellian. They're not even pretending that '1984' was fiction anymore. They want to emulate it."
