More racist tweets by Cambridge University Professor Priyamvada Gopal have been unearthed, including one in which she spoke about her urge to “kneecap white men.”
Gopal caused controversy last week when she tweeted “white lives don’t matter,” prompting a petition demanding she be fired. However, Cambridge University responded by promoting her to a full professorship, despite the fact that the tweet was censored by Twitter for hate speech.
The media’s reaction was to portray Gopal as the victim of bullying while feigning infinitely greater outrage over a “white lives matter” banner that was flown over a soccer match in Manchester.
More hateful tweets have now been discovered, including one discussion where Gopal states, “I resist urges to kneecap white men every day. So, no **I** am the hero.”

President Donald Trump on Saturday shared a series of images of individuals possibly responsible for vandalizing the Andrew Jackson statue in Lafayette Square.
The flyer urges Americans to contact the U.S. Park Police or the FBI if anyone has information on the people possibly involved with the crimes that occurred on June 22.
The president tweeted out 15 flyers featuring people photographed at the scene.
British-born journalist Raheem Kassam says the UK government is the reason he was locked out of his Twitter account for sharing a video of last week’s terrorist attack in Reading, when a Libyan asylum-seeker stabbed three people.
“I have evidence that the British government demanded Twitter suspend my account,” Kassam said on the social network Parler on Thursday, two days after his Twitter account was locked. He has not made the evidence public yet, however.
A Breitbart alum, Kassam is currently the editor of the online outlet National Pulse and a co-host of the podcast War Room with Steve Bannon, former adviser to US President Donald Trump. His Twitter account shows no activity after June 23.

Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett was scorched on Twitter after tweeting a seemingly random statement about “minor children” being “off limits.”
In a tweet made Sunday without any supplemental context, Jarrett said: “Minor children should be off limits. Full stop.”
Though Jarrett’s statement itself is morally obvious but unclear in context, perplexed users on Twitter had their own ideas, with the majority of comments pointing out Jarrett’s connections to Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta and the strange references made in his emails leaked by WikiLeaks in 2016.
Joe Rogan was trending on Twitter as people tried yet again to have the world’s most popular podcaster canceled. It comes after he revisited his skepticism about Joe Biden’s capacity to be the next president, among other remarks.
Attempts to make Rogan disappear from public view or at least shame people into not listening to his podcasts are nothing new. They have not been successful before and don’t appear to be working now.
Why is he ‘being cancelled’ this time? There were several things that my have prompted the outrage.
In a Thursday podcast, Rogan, who usually steers clear of politics, reiterated his negative attitude to how the Democratic Party primary went in the US. He criticized the ‘vote blue no matter who’ position and said mainstream Democrats and their friendly media have been ignoring problems with the candidacy of Joe Biden, like “speeches that clearly show some kind of cognitive decline” in the former vice president.
Twitter has removed a satirical video shared by US President Donald Trump – a parody CNN clip it flagged as “manipulated media” – after the broadcaster saw red over the tweet and following complaints from the owner of the footage.
The meme clip, which featured a mock CNN chyron and was meant as a dig at what Trump and his supporters see as biased media coverage of his presidency, was pulled on Friday after a company representing the original creators of the video complained to social media platforms, saying the footage was used without permission. In addition to Twitter, Facebook has also deleted the clip.
The offending video repurposed old viral footage showing two toddlers, one white and one black, running to embrace each other. The spoof clip was captioned “terrified toddler runs from racist baby.”
The meme, which was slapped with a manipulated media tag on Twitter before it was deleted, prompted outcry from CNN.
Twitter permanently blacklisted the account of Katie Hopkins, a British conservative commentator who had over 1 million followers prior to her ban. The company claims the deverification of her account and the subsequent ban are based on “hateful conduct.”
A Twitter spokeswoman confirmed that Hopkins has been permanently banned in an email to Breitbart News, accusing her of “hateful conduct.”
“Keeping Twitter safe is a top priority for us – abuse and hateful conduct have no place on our service and we will continue to take action when our Rules are broken,” said the spokeswoman. “In this case, the account has been permanently suspended for violations of our Hateful Conduct policy.”
The Washington Free Beacon just published the findings of an investigation into American social media companies and their handling of Chinese government propaganda and misinformation which is routinely distributed on their platforms.
An investigation reportedly run by House Foreign Affairs Committee leader Rep. Michael McCaul used Congressional resources to examine how CCP figures use different platforms, and what policies each have in place to mark the information as propaganda, or censor it all together.
Surprisingly, even the most stringent websites handled the Chinese propaganda with a light touch, even as they continued to crack down on conservative voices and media organizations. Just today, Facebook removed a Trump campaign ad for using a symbol that a group of left-wing activists claimed to be a “Nazi symbol” (albeit one most Americans, and most Jews, probably wouldn’t recognize). Twitter, meanwhile, refuses to remove even tweets with patently false claims, like CCP officials claiming the coronavirus originated in the US.
Media commentator Mark Dice recently trolled American coffee company Folgers into releasing a statement in support of Black Lives Matter.
Calling out the dark color of the iconic company’s flagship product, coffee, Dice last Friday facetiously asked why they had yet to release a tweet in support of the black community.
“@Folgers Your coffee may be black, but do you support Black Lives Matter?” Dice asked the company on Twitter.
For some strange reason, when one types the word “racist” into Twitter’s people search, Donald Trump is the top result – a discovery made days after Trump took action against biased social media platforms.
According to The Independent, Twitter search results are affected by the data they collect on you – including political leaning and your interests, however their search of the word in a private browsing session using Brave browser was the same on both iPhone and Android app.
