The Daily Mail – Dutch far-right politician and anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders said Twitter temporarily blocked his account following remarks he made about political rivals. Wilders, who faces threats against him by Islamists, relies heavily on Twitter to communicate with supporters.
Wilders, with 811,000 followers . . . said, “Twitter often tolerates death threats against me, but not a factual tweet by me about a colleague. Madness!”
Wilders’ Freedom Party sent a screenshot of his account showing the ban, due to expire in hours. The tweet that led to Wilders’ block referred to D-66, a progressive centre-left party as, “suckers …who import ever more Islam and then weep crocodile tears over the consequences, such as honor killings.”
