Whom The Gods Would Destroy....

Whom The Gods Would Destroy....

"Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad". The ancient Greek saying was used to great effect by the heroic English politician Enoch Powell. But if it was true in 1968, it is even more so on 2021. The latest example of woke lunacy and the growing tyranny that goes with it comes from Spain.

Twitter blocked Spanish MP Francisco Contreras for 12 hours for saying that men cannot get pregnant. Contreras’ tweet came in response to a news article that reported on the case of a “pregnant man” giving birth to “his” child.

The offending tweet read simply, “That’s a lie. A man cannot get pregnant. A man has neither uterus nor ovaries.” 

The explanation from Twitter to Contreras, cited broken rules such as inciting “hate, threats, harassment, and/or fomenting violence against people” based on “race, origin, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religion, age, disability, or illness.” Twitter’s communication to the elected MP also threatened permanent suspension for “repeated breaches.”

Other members of the moderate right-wing Vox party have also been suspended by Twitter, although Twitter consistently ignores overt threats against Vox party members on its platform by the far-left. 

The entire Vox account was censored during a recent election for merely posting high crime rates among illegal immigrant minors from the Muslim Maghreb region in Northwest Africa. The statistics were taken from public police sources. Twitter’s excuse in that case was that citing statistics showing the high percentage of criminal complaints against Maghreb was also ‘incitement to hatred.’
