Twitter plays by a bizarre set of rules.
Verified users who tweet in support of the slaughter of Jews will not be banned provided they eventually delete their pro-genocide messages, a Twitter spokesperson told me this weekend.
“If Tweets are deleted,” the spokesperson said, “we cannot take enforcement action against them. And, we don’t get into hypotheticals on deleted Tweets — as in, did they or did they not violate the Twitter Rules.”
In other words, a verified user can fantasize as much as he wants about a second Holocaust and not run afoul of Twitter’s censors so long as he eventually deletes his antisemitic messages.
That’s a hell of a thing, considering Twitter permanently banned former President Donald Trump in January for insisting the 2020 election was stolen.
“The world today needs a Hitler,” freelance journalist Adeel Raja tweeted Sunday to his more than 80,000 followers.
Earlier, in 2014, he tweeted in reference to the World Cup, “The only reason I’m supporting Germany in the finals is – Hitler was a German and he did good with those Jews!”
Raja, whose byline appeared on CNN’s website as recently as Sept. 2020, also tweeted in 2014, “My support for Germany is due to what Hitler did with Jews!” and “Hail Hitler!”
Raja’s most recent pro-Holocaust remark comes amid the recent escalation in hostilities between Israel and Palestine.
“What the Jews are doing in Palestine is similar to what Indian Hindus are doing in Occupied Kashmir. Same tactics,” he said this weekend.
After originally saying he “never heard of” the freelancer, CNN spokesman Matt Dornic told the Washington Examiner Raja will no longer be allowed to work for CNN.
“Adeel Raja has never been a CNN employee,” Dornic said. “As a freelancer, his reporting contributed to some newsgathering efforts from Islamabad. However, in light of these abhorrent statements, he will not be working with CNN again in any capacity.”
As of this writing, Raja’s Twitter account is still active, though his pro-Hitler and pro-Holocaust tweets have been deleted.
On May 11, Bollywood actress Veena Malik tweeted a fake quote in support of the Palestinian side of the Israel-Gaza conflict.
“I would have killed all the Jews of the world … but I kept some to show the world why I killed them,” Malik said in a since-deleted tweet to her more than 1.2 million followers.
Adolf Hitler never said this.
Malik later tweeted a political cartoon showing a hook-nosed Israeli soldier staring into a mirror and seeing a Nazi Wehrmacht soldier staring back.
“The irony of becoming what you once hated the Most,” she tweeted on May 14, adding the hashtag, “#IsraelWarCrimes.”
This tweet is still live.
“Netanyahu is a war criminal…!!!” Malik tweeted Saturday.
Like Raja, Malik’s Twitter account is still active.
In contrast, Trump was permanently banned this year for claiming the 2020 election was stolen.
“The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future,” Trump tweeted on the morning of Jan. 8, two days after the Capitol riot. “They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”
He tweeted moments later: “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”
Twitter then made the day to pull the plug on the former president’s account.
