Texas GOP Rep. and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw has publicly slammed the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, for accepting a Taliban leader to keep an account on the website while banning many conservative Americans including Donald Trump.
“Hey @jack why is the Taliban able to have an account?” Crenshaw asked.
“Do you now see why we are angry about your BS standards?”
Hey @jack why does the Taliban get an account..?
You see why Americans are pissed about your BS standards? https://t.co/Kyjp0aNpBP

The Twitter username @Zabihullah is shown as the “Official Twitter Account of Zabihullah Mujahid, the Spokesman of The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.”
Crenshaw’s tweet revealed the continuing bias that is happening with Twitter.
Other prominent and verified Twitter accounts also praised the terrorist attacks targeting Israel back in May.
Palestinians are awake and determined. They must continue this path. One can only talk with the language of power with these criminals. They must increase their strength, stand strong, confront the enemy, and force them to stop their crimes. #FreePalestine

“Palestinians are determined and awake. They must keep to this path. One can only use the language of power when talking to these criminals.”
“They should grow their strength, stay strong, confront their enemy, and force their crimes to stop. #FreePalestine,” Said Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the leader of Iran, back in May.
Iran is known to be a financial supporter of Palestinian terror groups.

Only a few months before this, then-President Trump was permanently taken off of Twitter for what the website said was “incitement of violence.”
According to a post the firm published to defense their decision to remove a sitting president from the website, Twitter said that Trump’s tweets incited the Jan. 6 Capitol “riot.”
“After a close look at recent Tweets from the username @realDonaldTrump and certain context surrounding them — in particular how they get interpreted on Twitter and off — we have permanently removed the account because of the risks of more violence,” Twitter said.
The firm then gave two examples of this alleged “incitement of violence.”
- “The 75,000,000 wonderful American Patriots who voted for me will have a BIG VOICE long into the future. They will not be treated unfairly or disrespected in any way!!!”
- “To the people who asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration.”
Neither post shows that Trump wanted rioters to go into the Capitol. Regardless, Trump was permanently removed from the website.
