The world as we know it

Twitter’s vilification of the right

There has been a lot of talk about deposed PM Gillard’s abusive behaviour towards the media including threats & preferential treatment. Gillard went ballistic when the media started investigating her past, which ultimately could see her jailed if you read michaelSmithNews blog.

On the preferential treatment side it would seem Twitter is fast getting a record as being one of Gillard’s and the Left’s one eyed fans, tolerating the most vitriolic, sickening & appalling abuse from her twitter followers whose abuse is directed at her detractors, whilst suspending any of Gillard’s and the Left’s twitter detractors for minor infringements, If not spurious grounds but typically unreasonable grounds. The chasm between treatment by Twitter of those from the left and right on twitter couldn’t be more stark.

For example Pollter runs the story about @PMOpressoffice (Prime Ministers Office Press Office when Gillard was in power), who has the following account @AshGhebranius contracted to them. @AshGhebranious tweets;


Even more appalling, when Politer sought a response from the Greens on the vitriolic abuse the greens response was;



Seems the Greens as usual are more interested in sides than integrity.

Some more of Ash’s tweets;




Why is it those of the Left whose shrill cries of victim are heard if anyone even looks at them sideways but the Left’s abuse of others far exceeds even the worst acts of their opponents. And why does Twitter actively tolerate & support this appalling behaviour by the Left online whilst unfairly and unreasonably vilifying those who oppose it. It’s all on record Twitter & you have a lot of explaining to do.


In many cases requests for an explanation from twitter as to why accounts were terminated were ignored.

We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in. Thomas Paine

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. RONALD REAGAN,
My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. Adlai E. Stevenson Jr
If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other. Carl Schurz
The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech. Justice Anthony Kennedy
Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. Patricia Sampson
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. Thomas Macaulay
The law will never make men free, it is men that have to make the law free. Henry David Thoreau
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. George Washington
