Satirical tweeter accounts like Titania McGrath, created by comedian Andrew Doyle as a radical intersectionalist poet and activist who, in spite of her immense privilege, is convinced that she is oppressed, are being censored with extreme prejudice.
Twitter is suspending satirical accounts that make fun of wokeness. All this has done is prove the satirists’ point -- that wokeness is an authoritarian, humourless ideology. Silicon Valley nerds need to lighten up.https://t.co/akywxEMuFr— spiked (@spikedonline) August 18, 2020
Jonathan Swift would not have fared well on Twitter, nor Voltaire or Diderot. Satire is part of Western tradition. That's why it is loathed by the Left.
Ironically, Twitter’s purge of the anti-woke satirists is a complete vindication of their work. In banning those who make fun of wokeness and criticise its censoriousness, Twitter has made it even clearer how authoritarian that wokeness is. It has also shown wokeness to be totally humourless mindset.
POWER TO THE CORRECT PEOPLE!!
