Over the past few years, Twitter has increased its censorship of various conservative voices and public figures.
Right-wingers continue to report shadowbans, account suspensions, account deletions, etc. The obvious endgame here is filtering out voices which contribute to a significant coalition of support for President Trump. Unfortunately, while Twitter works overtime to censor and ban conservatives, they’re freely allowing pedophiles to discuss their attraction to underage children.
Reports from Breitbart News note an alteration in Twitter rules which allows users of the service to discuss “attraction towards minors.” This allowance comes with the caveat of pedophiles refraining from “promoting” or “glorifying” the aforementioned attraction.
Why Twitter Favors Pedophiles over Conservatives
The most ironic aspect of Twitter’s allowance of pedophile chats is their take on “free speech.” Per the words of CEO Jack Dorsey, “freedom of expression” can sometimes generate adverse consequences for “other people’s fundamental human rights.” Dorsey then cited “privacy” and “physical security” as examples of rights which can be violated due to the existence of free expression.
What’s most tragic of all is Twitter using this logic to let pedophiles organize with one another, while shutting down conservative users on their platform. However, in the eyes of Dorsey, conversations about “child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon” are apparently less repugnant than conservatives who criticize Islam or Sharia Law.
The Paradox of Tolerance
The details above are an unfortunate example of what happens when everyone tries to be “woke” and tolerant. Contrary to liberal doctrines and talking points, intolerance is not always horrible. There are certain things which a civilized society should not tolerate; pedophilia and attraction to underage children just so happen to fall into that category.
When pedophiles are allowed to openly congregate with one another and discuss their illness as if it were normal, this increases the likelihood of children being placed in direct harm. Pedophilia should never be normalized and Twitter’s choice regarding this matter is bound to blow up in their faces at one point or another.
