Twitter Accounts Suspended Over Bible Verse & Warning About Trans ‘Day of Vengeance’


8,303 views

The Daily Wire commentator Michael Knowles was suspended on Twitter for posting a bible verse on the social media platform.

Knowles received the suspension for posting, “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.'”

According to Twitter, the tweet violated the platform’s “rules against violent speech.”

“You may not share abusive content, harass someone, or encourage other people to do so.”

Twitter instructed Knowles to remove the tweet or submit an appeal.

Attn: @elonmusk, Michael Knowles was suspended for posting a Bible verse. I assume this was a mistake. Can we get his account restored asap?” Matt Walsh tweeted.

Knowles’ Twitter suspension occurred the same day that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account was restricted for sharing an image about a rally called “Trans Day of Vengeance.”

“My Congressional account was suspended for 7 days for exposing Antifa, who are organizing a call for violence called ‘Trans Day of Vengeance,'” Greene stated on her personal account.

The Hill reported:

Twitter on Tuesday restricted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) congressional account for seven days after she repeatedly posted an image of a poster about a rally called “Trans Day of Vengeance.”

Greene tweeted about the event after three children and three adults were killed in a shooting at a Christian school in Nashville. Police say that the suspect in that shooting, who was killed during the incident, identified as transgender.

Ella Irwin, Twitter’s head of trust and safety, said in a separate tweet that the platform was automatically sweeping to remove images of the poster over worries it could incite violence.

“We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them.  ‘Vengeance’ does not imply peaceful protest,” Irwin said.

The poster highlights an event scheduled for Saturday, April 1, that appears to be organized by Our Rights DC. That group’s Twitter account, which has a little more than a thousand followers and describes itself as an “autonomous community sustaining direct action to demand accountability for injustice,” was locked on Tuesday.

“We need more visibility,” the poster states, calling on people to gather at the Supreme Court to “stop trans genocide.” The main wording on the poster says “Trans Day of Vengeance.”

“Twitter’s @ellagirwin claims no one was given a ‘strike’ for warning the American people of political violence planned at the Supreme Court. Yet my official CONGRESSIONAL account was banned for 7 days for exposing Antifa’s plan for violence on the ‘Trans Day of Vengeance.’ @elonmusk, can you explain?” Greene wrote.
