It seems any old bigoted racist can receive the big blue tick of approval from Twitter these days, especially if your prejudiced views happen to be directed towards white people (cough… Buzzfeed!) or if you just so happen to be an intolerant surgically altered transgender with a bigger agenda than you’re shaved off Adams apple.
Apparent “Model” and everyone’s favourite transgender rent-a-gob Munroe Bergdorf, who was famously fired from her job at L’Oreal following a vocal racist rant against white people has been officially verified on Twitter, despite the social media platform’s announcement that it would no longer verify people who engage in racism.
“Look who’s verified. Shout out to twitter for pushing that through!” smugly celebrated the transgender activist on Twitter.
Bergdorf, who was born a male named Ian, was fired from L’Oreal last year after she published a Facebook rant calling white people “the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth.”
“Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people,” wrote Bergdorf on Facebook. “Because most of ya’ll don’t even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggression to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this shit.”
“Come see me when you realise that racism isn’t learned, it’s inherited and consciously or unconsciously passed down through privilege,” the model continued, adding, “Once white people begin to admit that their race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth… then we can talk.”
She concluded her racist rant with, “Until then stay acting shocked about how the world continues to stay fucked at the hands of your ancestors and your heads that remain buried in the sand with hands over your ears”.
Following the incident, Bergdorf has prostituted her bigoted views on any public platform that will have her, while defending her previous comments, insisting that “all white people benefit from racism”, from an apparent social construct that puts all white people on the top of the food chain, even if that white person happens to be unemployed and living on benefits.
She has however, been challenged on her extreme public views along the way, most noticeably from the glorious one himself, Piers Morgan, who called her views “highly offensive” and accused the transgender activist of “playing the victim” upon complaining of receiving backlash and negative comments online after stating her view that “all, yes ALL white people are violent racists”.
Well, if you are going to viciously attack an entire race, what do you expect bitch, a fruit basket?!
With regards to Munroe and her recent verification, it seems that Twitter has a certain viewpoint and uses that viewpoint to discriminate. Twitter has clear favouritism to what it sees as “offensive” and “discriminative” and appears to have a double standard when it comes to suspending or de-verifying conservative users’ accounts as opposed to those of liberal users with more left wing socially accepted views.
Several popular conservative accounts have been stripped of their Twitter verification, including right wing activist and best-selling author, Tommy Robinson.
Twitter also stripped prominent far right public figures of their accounts, including Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding of Britain First, including the official Britain First public account in which President Donald Trump famously retweeted videos that depicted Muslims assaulting people and, in one video, smashing a statue of the Virgin Mary.
Twitter later declared that users could find their accounts suspended for “promoting hate,” or “directly attacking” people “on the basis of race.”
The recent verification of Bergdorf on Twitter raised some serious concerns from the online platforms users, with many branding the move “disgusting” and a “serious case of double standards’”.
“Thought they didn’t allow racists on Twitter, now they just verified racism” tweeted one user, while another follower wrote “Proof that @Twitter advocates racism against white people — SAD!”
This of course isn’t the first time that Twitter has shown unreserved resentment and bias towards right wing commentators.
British political commentator, publisher, celebrity, blogger, journalist, author and the most fabulous supervillain on the Internet, Milo Yiannopoulos, had his Twitter account suspended after claims he fanned flames of a social media attack on female Ghostbusters star, Leslie Jones.
Quite frankly, with the mass digital slaughter of conservative public figures currently occurring, at this rate we are still surprised that right wing personality and our certified queen of Twitter, Katie Hopkins, has survived the mass silencing and social genocide of right wing personalities on the social media platform, as of writing her verified account still remains (phew!)
We guess that God works in mysterious ways, though in saying that, we wouldn’t be surprised if Twitter ends up banning the Holy Father for his Christian views too, since he does condone sexism, genocide and slavery after all!
Expect Munroe to tweet that God is a white supremacist kind of deity that hates all black people any day now, well, anything to desperately cling on to that 15 minutes of fame, right?!
