David Duke Banned from Twitter
David Duke, former Louisiana state lawmaker and leader of the Ku Klux Klan from 1974 - 1978, has been banned from Twitter for repeated violations and hateful conduct.
While Twitter did not identify the specific post that led to the ban, given Duke's past, it's not hard to imagine what it was about. Duke has been a self-admitted advocate of the white supremacy movement for more than four decades. The Anti-Defamation League calls Duke, 'America's most well-known racist and anti-Semite.' It's not hard to find out where Duke stands as he's penned three self-published books: The Secret Behind Communism: The Ethnic Origins of the Russian Revolution and the Greatest Holocaust the History of Mankind, My Awakening: A Path to Racial Understanding and Jewish Supremacism: My Awakening on the Jewish Question.
Duke, originally from Oklahoma and educated at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, has quite the checkered past including fraud, gambling, inciting a riot, and unsuccessful runs for Governor of Louisiana, U.S. Senate, and even President of the United States of America.
Does anyone want to bet that we'll see Duke active on Parler next? After all, they're all about free speech and are anti-censorship, right?
