Following Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassam’s suspension from Twitter, we decided to find out just how many times verified, anti-Trump, liberal tweeters have got away with using the same language.
Kassam’s offending tweet — according to Twitter — was as follows:
The only presumably offensive part of the tweet is the use of the pejorative “f*cktard”. But upon investigation, Breitbart London found hundreds of examples of use of the word, both directed at ordinary people, and at politicians like President Trump, VP Mike Pence, Congressman Paul Ryan, and others which have gone unpunished by Twitter.
Here’s a look at the top 67 tweets from just one year, and which verified Twitter users they were sent by:
