On Tuesday, Truth Revolt reported that Twitter continued its assault on free speech by banning Bosch Fawstin, a former Muslim who won of Pamela Geller’s “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland, Texas. The site, however, continues to give carte blanche to liberals advocating the murder of President Trump in clear violation of its terms. Moreover, Fawstin said, the site has yet to ban those threatening to murder him.
According to Truth Revolt:
If you’ve spent any time at TruthRevolt, you know about this comic book writer/illustrator. Fawstin is the creator of Pigman, an anti-jihad superhero who dons pigskin leather and fights Islamists. The character was created after 9/11 when Fawstin looked back at his own Muslim upbringing and decided he needed to do his part to bring the true nature of Islam to light. You may also remember that Fawstin was the winner of Pamela Geller’s “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland, Texas which was attacked by an outraged terrorist.
Fawstin has continued producing his Pigman comics and drawings of Muhammad while promoting his work on Twitter. However, that doesn’t pass the social network’s groupthink requirements and so, his account has been suspended.
This was his final tweet, captured for posterity by Truth Revolt and other Twitter users:

“The three most important issues of our time are Free Speech, Free Speech and Free Speech,” he wrote. “Only by saying what needs to be said can we do what needs to be done.”
Fawstin is still live on Facebook, where he continues to challenge Twitter’s totalitarian tendencies, Trey Sanchez said:
In another Facebook post, Fawstin said he challenged Twitter’s decision, which was handed down with no clear reason and with no proof. Nevertheless, Twitter said his account “was found to be violating Twitter’s Terms of Service, specifically the Twitter rules against hateful conduct” and would not be reinstated.
“You write that it is against your ‘rules to promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people’, and yet you don’t cite any tweets of mine where I’m guilty of that, because I’ve never done that,” he said.
“I know that people, particularly leftists, consider criticism to rise to the level of ‘attacks’, and even ‘harassment’ and ‘assault’, but we all know these are extravagant claims made by those who can’t handle criticism. You have not used a specific tweet of mine in order to suspend me, which is something you usually do. And yet when I have been threatened by people on Twitter, I reported those threats to you, and you concluded that they didn’t violate your rules. And there are at least two individuals who have threatened me, yet who still have active Twitter accounts,” he added.
Twitter also allows the following:

Later, Fawstin said a “lone leftist” sparked his suspension:
He later added:
“When you survive a terrorist attack by Muslims, you tend to take death threats by Muslims directed at you a little more seriously than you would otherwise. I’m tired of people suggesting that I’m exaggerating matters. Just tired of it,” he wrote on Facebook.
“To the left, hating evil and speaking out against it is “hate speech,” he said on Monday.
