As I am sure you know by now, the far-left violent and radical group, “Antifa,” has been spreading hate, vitriol, and violence on Twitter for eons now, all in the name of being “anti-fascist,” while being “full-communist.” And they’ve gone completely unchecked by past Twitter moderators. It’s as if they had free rein to be bullies, and terrorists on the platform, while you and I would get suspended for calling the vaccine “useless.”
Yes, it was that lopsided and unfair.
And after reviewing the internal data, Elon has said so, himself.
Newsweek reported that in the latest complaints from Twitter users under Elon Musk’s leadership, the CEO is being accused of banning “anti-fascist accounts” while previously suspended conservative users are being reinstated.
Steven Monacelli, an independent journalist, reported on Tuesday that the group Elm Fork John Brown Gun Club (EFJBGC)—a leftist group based in Texas that volunteers as armed protection for LGBTQ events—had been suspended after breaking Twitter’s content rules.
According to a screenshot posted by Monacelli, the group was suspended for violating the platform’s rules “against hateful conduct,” citing two recent tweets from the club.
On Wednesday, clinical instructor at Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic Alejandra Caraballo reported that Chad Loder, an outspoken anti-fascist from Los Angeles, California, had also been suspended. Loder had reportedly been keeping track of anti-fascists who had recently been banned from the platform, according to a screenshot posted by Micah Lee, a writer at The Intercept.
Monacelli posted that he had reached out to Loder to ask if he had received a “suspension report” from Twitter explaining why his account had been banned. Loder reportedly said he had yet to receive one.
The recent suspensions have led to an outcry against Musk’s new Twitter content rules. The CEO has recently reinstated accounts that were previously banned on the platform for spreading hate speech or misinformation, specifically reinstating two accounts last week that were banned for transphobic tweets.
On Tuesday, Musk responded to a tweet from Kyle Becker, a former writer for Fox News, about how some users have accused the billionaire of being a “right-wing bogeyman” in light of reinstating conservative politicians, including Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and former President Donald Trump.
Musk responded that it was “obvious” there had not been “one permanent ban on even the most far-left account spouting utter lies.”
And you can’t blame Elon for cracking down on the violent radical group. After all, they’re now threatening violence against Tesla.
Elon Musk called a report on Antifa wanting to burn down Tesla “concerning.” The Tesla CEO responded to a Rebel News report on screenshots of calls to action. Andy Ngô, editor-at-large for the ThePost Millenial, shared screenshots of the calls to action by the now-suspended Twitter account @AshRedacted. The account posted links to Tesla locations and encouraged followers to add their own.
“Tonight in Portland! Every city, every town! Show up at your local Tesla dealerships in protest of Elon Musk!” one screenshot read with a photo of a burning Tesla. Ngô noted that the extremists wanted to get revenge on Elon Musk for suspending their accounts on Twitter.

The new Twitter CEO banned a pro-Palestinian terrorist group that actively promoted and celebrated violence against Jews. The account, Ian Miles Cheong noted, has been active since 2021.
Cheong added that he hoped more could be done to crack down on the violence, and Elon Musk agreed that the violence was “not okay.” In another response to Ngô, Elon Musk said, “Incitement to violence will result in account suspension.”
Ngô then asked for advice on reporting the violations. “I’ve been reporting on specific accounts for years & pretty much all of them remain. Last year, Antifa used Twitter to direct comrades to swarm me after I ran into a hotel following a violent street beating.”
“That is a disturbing story and very concerning that Twitter took no action, despite a clear violation of ToS. Report in this thread for now,” the new Twitter CEO responded. Following Elon Musk’s invitation for users to report in that thread, several Twitter users shared screenshots, advice, and calls to action.
Could they have already started their revenge?

It’s really alarming and goes on to further show extreme biased and a very twisted agenda that had been going on at “WOKE” Twitter.
Glad to see these radicals finally getting what they deserve.
