On Sunday, Breitbart News reported that typing “kill” in Twitter’s search bar produces the shocking hashtag #KillKavanaugh as top of its top results.
We tested that theory and got the following result:
In short, Breitbart said, “Twitter is suggesting that its users might be interested in a hashtag about the murder of a federal judge and SCOTUS nominee.”
The search result was also found by Instapundit:

Although many current tweets on the hashtag are critical of both the hashtag and Twitter’s double standards, earlier tweets use the hashtag unironically and uncritically. Several of these tweets have not been removed by Twitter, and the accounts that tweeted them do not appear to have been punished by Twitter in any way, despite the fact that some users say they have reported them.
Antidote, not anecdote. Reported.

Even more, just typing ‘Ki’ in the twitter search bar gives you #KillKavanaugh as a top result.

#KillKavanaugh how is this a thing? Shouldnt this be against Twitter's guidelines?

One would think that’s the case, but as we’ve reported before, it’s not unusual for Twitter to allow such hashtags and tweets where conservatives are the target of left-wing hate.
@jack this is fucked up… the 1st thing that pops up in auto fill when you type hashtag and kill… it says #KillKavanaugh. I think you @jack should be held accountable if something happens to Kavanaugh! pic.twitter.com/vwnoDL51e5

Others noted the double standard, especially after Twitter took action against actor James Woods, who is extremely popular on the social media site.
So #killkavanaugh is acceptable, but James Woods gets banned for making fun of beta males?

One person asked:
@FBI @SecretService Are you aware that @Twitter is allowing #KillKavanaugh to be auto-suggested but also trend?? @jack what on earth are you doing?! What kind of company are you running?!?!!!?! #shameful #kavanaugh https://t.co/FNqHvQYTMp

Liberalism, as I first opined back in 2011, has proven itself to be an ideology of insane bloodthirsty rage and hate. Sadly, leftists prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.
- Updated: Occupy Wall Street advocates murdering ICE agents on Twitter, social media site does NOTHING
- Twitter bans ex-Muslim cartoonist Bosch Fawstin, still lets liberals advocate, threaten murder
- Twitter purge of far-right accounts begins on Stalin’s birthday, liberals still allowed to call for Trump’s murder
- Hypocrisy: Twitter bans Roger Stone for mean tweets about CNN hosts, lets liberals threaten murder
- Twitter allows account advocating murder of Trump, Pence
