Talk about disgusting: The anti-Donald Trump movement coursing across the country has also gone online, with the newest trend on Twitter calling for violence and rape against the president-elect’s wife, Melania.
Where are the so-called Twitter censors who seek only to foster friendly communications among posters? Apparently, calls for “Rape Melania” don’t meet the criteria for hate-filled messaging, worthy of removal.
Breitbart has the news:
“Social media giant Twitter allowed the violent threat “Rape Melania” against incoming First Lady Melania Trump to trend after the site exploded with assassination threats against President-elect Donald Trump.”
As a poster named @BobbyDellBSC, also known as “WE DID IT,” wrote: “‘Rape Melania’ is trending. Liberals are really outdoing their own disgusting behavior.”
The call for violence against Mrs. Trump didn’t start online. A protester raised a paper version of the message in all caps outside the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., and a photograph of that act, posted to Twitter, soon went viral.
Many social media users couldn’t believe what they saw.
One Twitter user wrote: “Why are you allowing #RapeMelania to trend?”
Another: “I just saw that Rape Melania is trending. This week, many tweets talked about killing Trump. More reminders that Love Trumps Hate is a lie.”
The targeting of Trump’s wife comes after days of calls from those on the left to protest the billionaire’s presidency, including some from the celebrity arena that have outright supported assassination.
