KavanaughAs you can see, the term “kill Kavanaugh” in various forms appears multiple times in the 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.”

Breitbart noted:

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.


Others noted:


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.

Others noted the double standard, especially after Twitter took action against actor James Woods, who is extremely popular on the social media site.


One person asked:

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.
