Twitter Rejects Political Groups Ad for ‘Hateful Content.’ Here’s What it Actually Said.

Published

Twitter is once again gaining the national spotlight for being ridiculously left-wing in the application of their rules, after they rejected a group’s ad for “hateful content” after they spotted the phrase “illegal alien” in the copy.

Which is strange because that’s actually what folks who cross the border without our legal permission are. Aliens. Who are here illegally. They aren’t “undocumented immigrants.” The term alien literally means “belonging to a foreign nation or country.”

“Yesterday, Twitter rejected four Center for Immigration Studies tweets for use in the Center’s Twitter Ads campaign, alleging hateful content,” CIS wrote in a statement on its website on Wednesday. “All four tweets use the statutory phrases ‘illegal alien’ or ‘criminal alien,’ and all of the tweets referenced law enforcement, either at the border or in the interior.”

Twitter’s only response to an inquiry about why promotion of the tweets was rejected: “We’ve reviewed your tweets and confirmed that it is ineligible to participate in the Twitter Ads program at this time based on our Hateful Content policy. Violating content includes, but is not limited to, that which is hate speech or advocacy against a protected group.”

Fox News reported that “the tweet in question featured a video from a political news site. The video of ‘illegal aliens pouring across the border,’ CIS argued, ‘reminds us why we need a wall,’ ” Fox wrote.

But CIS said the term “illegal alien” is correct and “has been used in both federal law and by the Supreme Court.”

Hans von Spakovsky, a legal fellow with the Heritage Foundation, recently stated that the term “illegal alien” is actually a very precise term in law. Here’s a small bit of commentary he wrote on the subject:

‘Alien’—rather than ‘immigrant’—is the correct legal term, since ‘alien’ is defined in 8 U.S.C. §1101 (a)(3) as ‘any person not a citizen or national of the United States.’

Precision in the law is a vital principle, since the exact words used in statutes, regulations, contracts, guidance documents, and policy statements can significantly affect how they are applied and interpreted.

This is the kind of insanity that rolls out of a culture obsessed with political correctness and desperate not to hurt anyone’s feelings. The phrase is not derogatory. It’s the correct term and it’s important to call things by their proper labels, because when you stop doing that, especially to appear more “tolerant” you change the definition of important terms.

When these definitions change, which is exactly what liberals want, previously unacceptable behaviors and ideas suddenly get welcomed into the mix.

Big Court Win Involving Ballot Evidence Could Potentially Swing Nevada to Trump (Details)

YUGE!

The Trump team (and America, in general) scored a big win on Wednesday. Ultimately, Nevada could potentially swing back toward President Trump if all goes according to plan. Now, the lawyers just have to provide the evidence. Here’s the deal, via Washington Examiner: In its first court victory, a Nevada judge has agreed to let the Trump campaign present its evidence that fraud and illegalities plagued the state’s election, enough to reverse Joe Biden’s win and set an example for other state challenges. According to Trump officials, the judge set a Dec. 3 hearing date and is allowing 15 depositions. What’s more, the campaign plans to present its evidence that could result in the rejection of tens of thousands of mail-in ballots in Democratic Clark County where Biden ballots outnumbered Trump ballots by 91,000 in unofficial results.

Pelosi. Newsom. Phil Murphy. All have been caught doing things during the pandemic that they’ve cautioned the public against doing. That would be called hypocrisy – do as I say, not as I do. Now, another far-left radical has been busted in the act. It’s as if these libs think they won’t get caught. From The Daily Wire: Denver Mayor Michael Hancock (D) apologized and asked for the public’s forgiveness on Wednesday evening after it was revealed that he was traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday despite his own Twitter account cautioning against travel “if you can” earlier in the day.
