A group of Jewish activists with grassroots civil rights movement “End Jew Hatred” drove by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s home Monday, blasting recordings of Holocaust denial tweets that remain on the social media site.
The move comes just after Twitter banned President Donald Trump and as it continues to crack down on conservative users.
End Jew Hatred argues the platform operates on a double standard, saying it fails to ban or take action against Holocaust deniers while combatting other forms of “misinformation.”
“Dorsey has been quick to ban content that he deems to be ‘misinformation’ when it comes to politics, the pandemic, or other issues of consequence. But when users on his platform spread harmful lies about the systematic murder of 6 million Jews, he does nothing,” the organization said in a Monday press release.
The organization says some of those tweets include the following statements.
“Holocaust – not real”
“the holohoax never happened but I want to do it again every single time”
“The holocaust is as fake as Jesus lmao”
TheDarkWire.com can confirm that the aforementioned tweets were still on the platform as of early Tuesday.
Follow Twitter’s banning of Trump, many have also questioned why Twitter continues to allow Iranian leader Ali Khamenei, who has himself tweeted messages of Holocaust denial.
International human rights lawyer and political analyst Arsen Ostrovsky recently asked Twitter in a recent post, “… how is it that President #Trump can be suspended from @Twitter, but the President of Iran, @khamenei_ir, who literally calls for genocide of Israel, violence to Americans and denies the Holocaust, is allowed to stay on?”
When questioned at a Senate Commerce Committee hearing in October, Dorsey admitted that the platform does not consider Holocaust denial to be “misinformation.”
“It’s misleading information, but we don’t have a policy against that type of misleading information,” Dorsey said at the time.
Dorsey’s statement came two weeks after the company reportedly pledged to ban posts “deny or diminish” that deny events such as the Holocaust.
