“Men’s Rights Advocate” Robert Stacy McCain Suspended From Twitter
Far right blogger Robert Stacy McCain started his career as an openly racist neo-Confederate with white supremacist and neo-Nazi friends, then later magically transformed himself into a “men’s rights advocate” when he realized he could bilk the angry man-boys of the GamerGate crowd more effectively.
Last night, this hateful cretin was finally suspended by Twitter after years of abusing and harassing women (and yours truly, by the way). He still has an active second account, @SexTroubleBook, an account he started to promote his awful misogynist anti-feminist screed. But that isn’t stopping him from whining and crying that he’s been “censored,” because that’s what all these abusive right wing jerks do when they finally have to face some consequences — courageous culture warriors turn into crybabies at the drop of a hat.
Of course, right wing Twitter is ranting insanely about McCain being “censored,” even though he isn’t, and even the libertarian kooks at Reason magazine are getting into the act: Did Twitter’s Orwellian ‘Trust and Safety’ Council Get Robert Stacy McCain Banned?
Orwellian! Look out.
The wingnut troll community is getting even more paranoid than usual; they apparently thought they’d be able to run amok forever on Twitter, abusing and harassing women and liberals in general to their hearts’ content. But alas, it seems those halcyon days may be over.
(We’ll have to wait and see if this is actually a permanent ban, though, and not just one of Twitter’s ineffectual temporary suspensions.)
As a constant target of these creeps — for years — you’ll have to excuse me if I don’t spring to the defense of their “free speech” rights; do I even need to point out that as a private company, Twitter is not obligated to provide them with a platform to spew their noxious hatred?
Meanwhile, McCain has used his second account to post a special theory about your humble narrator:
How cool is that? “Literally” (not figuratively) possessed by a demon!
What’s that, Azazel? You need some more coffee? Yes, master, right away! BRB.
