Canadian blogger slapped by Twitter for violating Pakistani law

Is Twitter — an American company — now enforcing Pakistani blasphemy law?  It sure looks that way.  On Friday, Canadian activist and blogger Ensaf Haidar said she received notification from the social media site that a tweet she posted violated Pakistani law.

According to the Gateway Pundit, the ban was prompted by another tweet asking followers to retweet if they oppose mandatory niqab laws.  As of this writing, however, it seems her account is fully functional.  Nevertheless, Twitter’s action has many scratching their heads.

This seems to have been the tweet that triggered the speech Nazis at Twitter:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

According to Haidar, this was their response:

Reaction was rather predictable:

Indeed, it seems that Facebook isn’t the only Silicon Valley social media site now propping up Islamists.

Indeed.  Welcome to “1984,” courtesy of far-left Silicon Valley tech giants.

In 1989, former President George H.W. Bush said that “… the day of the dictator is over.”  Sadly, it’s not.  Dictators like Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler are gone, only to be replaced by another set of dictators, with far more power and absolutely no accountability.
