Navy SEAL Hammers Obama on Trump ‘Nazi’ Comment: Try Saying “Radical Islam”
Twitter banned and then restored the account of a man caught in a Twitter argument relating to former president Barack Obama and his controversial speech at the University of Illinois on Sept. 7. The tweet that sparked the ban followed a retweet of a Now This post that showed a segment of Obama’s speech. In the post, Obama did not state explicitly but insinuated that President Trump would not stand up to Nazi sympathizers. The comment seemingly refers back to the Charlottesville, Virginia, “Unite the Right” rally of August 2017. Twitter suspended Paronto’s account and removed the tweet. When it was restored, he posted a follow up tweet that included a screenshot of the tweet he was forced to delete. Twitter then suspended him a second time, according to Breitbart. The account for Secret Society Alumnus contains many anti-Trump tweets. Paronto sees his banning as part of a bias towards conservatives on Twitter. His account has since been restored.
