After Twitter Ban UKIP London MEP Hits Back: ‘Suspended Because I said Islam Is Death Cult… Well It Still Is’

by OLIVER JJ LANE4 Oct 2017

London UKIP MEP Gerard Batten has gone on the offensive after a week’s ban from micro-blogging site Twitter for calling Islam a “death cult”, doubling down on his original remarks.

...

Speaking to Breitbart London during the UKIP conference during his ban, Batten said he had written to Twitter to explain his remarks and demand his account be reinstated, but that he had received no response.
...

Batten also pointed out the account which had reported his to the site’s administrators appeared to be a bot account creating vast amounts of tweets  — “19,000 since last July” — and operating with the purpose of “identifying, complaining about, and removing postings it does not approve of”.

...

The tweet for which he was banned was in response to another Twitter user and read: “Muslims kill each other for being the wrong kind of Muslim more than they kill infidels. It’s a death cult.”

...


Breitbart London reported on another such ban in September, when former Muslim and anti-female genital mutilation (FGM) campaigner Shazia Hobbs was silenced. Speaking to Breitbart, she said: “It’s absolutely disgusting… There was no reason given. Twitter would not tell me what tweets were in violation of their rules. They said it was because of ‘harassment’.

“All I tweet about is the rape of Pakistani children by Pakistani men.”
