Wingnut Blogger ‘Ace of Spades’ Deletes Hateful Tweet About Sandra Fluke
As noted last week, wingnut blogger “Ace of Spades” was scheduled to be honored with a “Breitbart Award” for “best blog,” because hate shines brightly in the Breitbart Galaxy.
Today I noticed that “Ace” has deleted at least one of his ugly misogynistic tweets about women’s rights activist Sandra Fluke — oddly enough, the one we highlighted in this post.
When you embed tweets at LGF, you’re basically saving a copy of the tweet. If a tweet is deleted by its author it can still be read here at LGF if it was embedded in an article, Page, or comment, but the user’s avatar picture and the reply/retweet/favorite buttons are missing; that’s how you can tell when a tweet has been deleted.
Our local copy of the tweet still contains the author’s name, their Twitter username, the tweet, and a timestamp (which links to an error page at Twitter), so it’s very useful when someone like “Ace” decides to hide something truly nasty, like this:
Please don’t call Sandra Fluke a slut. Respect her for what she is, a shiftless rent-a-cooch from East Whoreville.
