Twitter Bans Alt-Right Troll for Criticizing CNN, Ignores Graphic Death Threats Against Assange

• http://thefreethoughtproject.com, By Rachel Blevin

Twitter is no stranger to accusations of double standards when it comes to which accounts it suspends and why, but the latest offender appears to have been banned for a few critical Tweets, while many of the individuals who use the platform to publish graphic death threats enjoy full access.

Alt-Right troll and InfoWars commentator Roger Stone was suspended from Twitter on Saturday after he posted a Tweet calling CNN's Don Lemon a "lying covksucker" and a "dumb piece of shit."

While Stone's insults are crude, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange noted that Stone's comments are nothing compared to the graphic threats both he and Edward Snowden receive on a regular basis.From users who wrote "Assange should be killed, executed for putting people at risk with his stupid revelations," to users who went as far as to say that they would be "happy to pull the trigger on both" Assange and Snowden, there is no shortage of death threats on the platform.
