#TwitterGulag: The Hypocrisy of the Persecuted Wingnut

The right wing persecution fantasy known as #TwitterGulag is still raging today, as the conspiracy theories and suspected masterminds keep multiplying and getting more ridiculous. They’ve now started adding a slash to any suspected mastermind’s Twitter username, to avoid what they think is the DREADED REPLY TRAP that keeps getting their accounts suspended.

For example:

But today, we also find breitbart.com’s Mandy Nagy and Lee Stranahan urging conservatives to do exactly what they’ve been whining and crying about for months: use Twitter’s “block and report as spam” feature to silence people who disagree with them.

These are the same people who’ve been trying to cast me as the super-villain in a plot to oppress conservatives, because I advised — and will continue to advise — my friends and followers to block and report the psycho stalkers from the website exposed in this post. Smell that? It’s the ripe stench of hypocrisy.

But Lee Stranahan perfectly described what these obsessive nuts have been doing on Twitter for months, harassing me, my followers, and everyone with whom I communicate, with “unwanted, bizarre tweets,” and I’d like to thank him for supporting my effort to fight against this kind of stalking behavior with the tools Twitter created for that purpose.

This wingnut double standard has been noted by others as well:
