Tweets Disappear After Axelrod Exchange

 

Responding to a tweet by former Obama campaign manager David Axelrod, I found myself entering into a tweet exchange about an accusation that Rand Paul was racist (see the story about that part of the exchange here).  After the exchange of about 30 tweets that I found to be stunning – statements that you cannot express your opinion about racism unless you are black – I was dismissed.

Here is where the fun began.  Thinking that the tweets openly stated what the left often thinks but never says directly I took a screenshot of the exchange.  It was lucky that I did this because at about this moment my tweets started to disappear before my eyes.  I switched over to the interactions page and suddenly a message flashed that said “Thinking Right Blog is a protected account” and I was denied access.  Funny thing is I am Thinking Right, my account is not protected and my account was completely frozen.  I switched over to my personal account to see if Twitter was having issues and the answer was no.  When I went back to Thinking right, all of my tweets and the responses were completely erased or frozen.

Ever watched a movie where the evil government suddenly steps in and takes over the life of a citizen that was just in the wrong place at the wrong time by manipulating his life, changing his electronic records, erasing his history?  I have seen a lot of those and I am usually able to “temporarily suspend disbelief” so that I can enjoy the movie.  Of course, once it is done I laugh at how unrealistic it was.  This felt exactly like that, only it was real and not funny.  I went to Facebook and published the conversation.

Now it got even stranger, about ten minutes later I went back to Twitter and about two-thirds of my deleted tweets suddenly reappeared, but none of the responses to those tweets.  My still deleted tweets were now marked “protected” and I was blocked from access, all of the responses (including the original that launched the whole episode) were deleted and all of the exchange had been deleted from the my “mentioned” page.  I did not think it funny when my wife joked that the police were about to knock on my door.

Is there a chance that this is some weird coincidence?  Though I think it highly likely that this was NOT a coincidence, for my own peace of mind I hope that it is.  Here is how the exchange looked before it was altered and deleted.

@davidaxelrod How can Rand Paul oppose the Civil Rights Amendment and say he supports poor children?

ThinkingRightBlog ‏
@LiberalPhenom @davidaxelrod Paul doesn’t believe in racism that isn’t the same as opposing the Civil Rights Amendment.

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl @davidaxelrod It is EXACTLY the same thing & don’t try to tell me, a black person who has exp racism, otherwise.

ThinkingRightBlog ‏@ThinkingRightBl
@LiberalPhenom @davidaxelrod So because you are black you get the last and only word? I have experienced racism and I am not black.

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl @davidaxelrod Yeah, I hv the last word abt my exp. Don’t need you to make excuses for and preach to me abt racism.

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl @davidaxelrod I’m supposed to believe Rand Paul really wants to protect my liberties while he would deny my civil rights.

ThinkingRightBlog ‏@ThinkingRightBl
@LiberalPhenom @davidaxelrod You didn’t answer the question, do you get the only word on what is racist because you are black?

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl @davidaxelrod Yes I get the last word on what is racist as it pertains to me. You do not.

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl @davidaxelrod That wld be like a man telling a woman what she exp having a child. He couldn’t begin to know.

ThinkingRightBlog ‏@ThinkingRightBl
@LiberalPhenom @davidaxelrod Still avoiding, we are talking about Civil Rights nationally and not setting policy about only your experience.

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl @davidaxelrod I answered your Q. Like all GOPers u refuse to hear the truth. You do not get to tell me what racism is.

ThinkingRightBlog ‏@ThinkingRightBl
@LiberalPhenom @davidaxelrod It is definitionally racist to promote one race at the expense of another – you have to use race to do that.

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl @davidaxelrod And we are talking abt the exp of millions of American citizens.

ThinkingRightBlog ‏@ThinkingRightBl
@LiberalPhenom @davidaxelrod No, you said that you got the last word on your experience, not “millions of American citizens.” Which is it?

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl @davidaxelrod I’m supposed to believe Rand Paul really wants to protect my liberties while he would deny my civil rights.

ThinkingRightBlog ‏@ThinkingRightBl
@LiberalPhenom @davidaxelrod Still didn’t answer. Rand Paul believes all races should get equal treatment – any other position is racist.

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl So you’re saying Civil Rights Act put in place to ensure equality is racist?

ThinkingRightBlog ‏@ThinkingRightBl
@LiberalPhenom @davidaxelrod It is definitionally racist to promote one race at the expense of another – you have to use race to do that.

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl And show me where Paul believes all races equal. That why he opppses Civil Rights act? Votes 4 laws against women’s rights?

LiberalPhenom ‏@LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl Since when? Being against the Civil Rights amendment which furthers equal treatment is not believing all are equal.

ThinkingRightBlog ‏@ThinkingRightBl
@LiberalPhenom @davidaxelrod Actually, the Constitution does You are saying that your race deserves superior treatment because of skin color

LiberalPhenom
@ThinkingRightBl @davidaxelrod Look, you support Paul, you suport him denying me & millions other citizens rights. I’m done.
