Twitter Verifies ‘Alt-Right’, Racist Leader Jason Kessler
What happened to there being no hate groups on twitter??! Twitter just gave Jason Kessler, the man who organized the “Unite The Right” protests in Charlottesvlle, NC, that caused the death of Heather Hayer a blue check. The city of Charlottesville was on edge back in August when the protests held by White Nationalists, Neo-Nazi’s and members of the alt-right became violent with people counter protested their hate towards people of color.
Kessler went to his timeline to brag about being verified.
How though? Twitter allegedly doesn’t allow hatred onto their platform. Per twitter’s own policy:
You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
According to this, Kessler shouldn’t even have an account! There are enough videos, articles and evidence of Kessler behaving against twitter’s own policy to have his account wiped away. FYI, this is how Kessler feels about Hayer, the woman plowed down by a hateful person during his rally:
