Conservative political satirist and YouTuber Hunter Avallone, was recently suspended from Twitter for unspecific reasons. Avallone is a staunch right-of-center commentator, Trump supporter, and is known for combating liberal groups such as the following: SJWs, transgenders, feminists, anti-gun advocates and various other left-wing activists.

“Woke up this morning to see I’ve been suspended from Twitter for reasons unknown,” Avallone expressed on Monday, via Facebook. “Thanks commies.”

On Tuesday, the YouTuber uploaded a new video pertaining to this case, conveying his thoughts on the suspension.

In the video description, Avallone posted a link to his backup account: @RealHunterA. This account was also suspended by Twitter.

“My new Twitter has now been suspended also,” he stated. “I did NOTHING against the rules either. Twitter is targeting me, or they are protecting Riley Dennis.”

The YouTuber later posted that his account was allegedly suspended for “targeted abuse,” while specific examples were not provided by Twitter. This adds Hunter Avallone to the growing list of conservatives banned by the social media giant.

Cowger Nation reached out to Twitter for comment, but has currently not received a response.

    Here’s a partial list of websites I have been banned (censored) from:

    http://www.crisismagazine.com
    http://www.brietbart.com
    http://www.churchmilitant.com
    http://www.wnd.com
    http://www.americanthinker.com
    http://www.charismanews.com

    Mind you, I wasn’t banned for using obscene language, making threats, attacking people or any of that. I was banned because they couldn’t tolerate dissent.

      Chuck,
      Being banned from a site is different from being censored. I Like to use the analogy of Howard Stern, a fellow atheist or agnostic along with you. Howard’s show was offensive to many people. But I was free to tune him out if I did not want to listen to him. He was also famous for prank calling other call in shows, and those shows always hung up on the caller when they said “Bababooey”, or whatever it was. Hanging up on the prank caller, or not listening to Howard’s show are cases of banning, which you have experienced. Censorship would be equal to taking Howard’s show off the air altogether. Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, all would fall under the category of the radio station. When You comment on WND you are merely acting as a caller into the show itself. They are free to hang up on you if they deem your call to be a prank call (Trolling).

      Now, “mind you”, I love a good debate. And I do think labeling someone a troll has become a way for many to avoid a debate. But that is their right to tune you out. But I would stand up for your right to post your dissenting views on Twitter, YouTube, etc. Because my goal is not to silence your voice, but to convict and convince you of the lack of Truth in them. For the following is a far stronger testimony than ignorance.

    Twitter is a private company and you have to agree with their terms before joining. Cry me a river

      So are most Radio stations. If this were a “liberal” commentator, You would be crying Havoc. But because this is a conservative all of a sudden the “rules” apply. This is by definition a form of bias and prejudice, But there is still no liberal uproar? If You were Truly a liberal you would be fighting for the fair playing field of ideas, and the free expression thereof. Instead, you are merely a snowflake who is afraid to hear the other side of the argument as it violates your “safe zone”.

      In the Bible, this is known as the “sin of partiality”, or showing favor to one group over another. Just like Racism is form of the sin of Partiality, and why I vehemently oppose any form of Racism.

      This is the real problem with liberalism in general. They have no moral basis to stand by, so their moral standard is the sin of partiality. But what happens, when you disagree with the “liberal” establishment??? All of a sudden you become an underclass.
