Double Standard Twitter-Style: Twitter Defends Azealia Banks After Her Call for Sexual Violence Against Gov. Sarah Palin

Twitter proves it’s run by Leftist lunatics who aren’t any better than the filth who make it a cesspool. 
It's okay to have a war against conservative women. 

Breitbart reports social media giant Twitter made a shocking decision to defend rapper Azealia Banks’ call for violence—a demonstrable violation of the company’s Terms of Service—against former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Breitbart News has learned.

“We reviewed the content and determined that it was not in violation of the Twitter Rules,” Twitter told a person who formally complained about Banks’ call for the forcible rape of the former Alaska governor.

The complaint submitted to the social media company, shared with Breitbart News, shows that Twitter’s support team was made aware of the actions that Banks’ calls to violence show on Wednesday of this week. The complaint details in plain terms how Banks’ actions violate Twitter’s Terms of Service agreement. The complaint reads:

The high profile twitter user @AZEALIABANKS openly continues to advocate for rape, violent, brutal sexual & physical violence in ‘offensive, vulgar, abusive and obscene’ terms towards a targeted woman and her family in clear violation of Twitter’s strong stand against this sort of behavior,” the complaint reads. “This user continues to make ‘threats of violence’ and continues to ‘promote violence’ against a targeted [sic] individual and her family. This harassment by the user’s own public admission, was ‘unprovoked’ and is  ‘is one-sided’ and ‘includes threats’ – direct, explicit and graphic. @AZEALIABANKS is ‘promoting violence’ advocating ‘direct attacks’ and ‘threats’ on the basis of ‘race’, ‘gender’ and ‘religious affiliation’. I am encouraged that you ‘do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories’ as for the past 72 hours this has been 90% of the of tweets coming from this @AZEALIABANKS. This user has openly tweeted the fact she selected to target this individual based on her opposition to the target’s beliefs. I am encouraged that your policy includes: ‘In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.’ The resulting media coverage has created over 500,000 google results in a three day period already with seemingly no action from Twitter to what is a very high profile violation of your own stated Terms of Service. I look forward to your swift response, your swifter action and reaffirming for members of your community (of which I am one) that threats of sexual & racial violence against women will not stand on your platform.
