Root: I Was ‘Disappeared’ by Twitter

LAS VEGAS — On Saturday, February 6, I was ‘disappeared’ by Twitter. This reminds me of the Soviet gulag, or the East German Stasi, or Fidel Castro’s Cuba. Places where dissent was disallowed. And dissenters were “disappeared” in the middle of the night. As a Jew, it reminds me of the Nazi Gestapo. Clearly, no political dissent is allowed by Twitter. Certainly not by conservatives. My banning by Twitter is very shocking and bad news for American exceptionalism, personal freedom, freedom of speech, and conservative talk radio. If free speech and opinions are no longer allowed in Joe Biden’s America, how long will it be before conservative talk radio is banned?

A decade ago, I gave a speech to 1,000 conservatives in San Francisco. I opened with a joke. I said, “It’s great, but honestly a little confusing, to be in a city where you can be openly gay, openly transexual, openly bisexual, but you have to be a closet conservative.” It was a joke and the crowd roared. I got a wild standing ovation. Now look how far we’ve come. Being a conservative is now a crime worthy of banning in America. It’s legal to make me and my opinions disappear — even though my opinions represented 74 million voters in the past election.

As a teenager, I remember the ultra-liberal ACLU taking the side of the KKK that they had a right to march in Skokie, Illinois, a very Jewish city. The ACLU felt freedom of speech and expression was THAT important. They obviously felt that freedom of speech was central to the great American story. Today Twitter allows mass murderers like the leaders of Iran to freely tweet, but not Wayne Allyn Root, a conservative talk show host.”

By the way, why was I “disappeared” by Twitter? I have no idea. They never contacted me. I did not know I was banned. They never told me which tweet so offended them that I had to be ex-communicated and “disappeared” from Twitter, while mass murderers continue to tweet to their hearts’ content.

This is evil. This is 1938. This can’t stand. Conservatives must rise up before we are all ex-communicated and disappeared. Today it was me, tomorrow they will come for you.”
