Twitter Bans Lars Larson


    It was for 12 hours for the syndicated host, and the reason they gave him was hate speech. Larson says the reason was for replying to an activist who lashed out at Portland police. Officers shot 36-year-old Andre Catrel Gladen. Police say Gladen’s landlord called police after he refused to leave a doorstep and entered the home when officers arrived.

    Gladen suffered from schizophrenia and was blind. According to Willamette Week there was a witness who saw Gladen pull a knife. Gladen was killed after being shot in the incident.

    Former Mayoral candidate Sarah Iannarone tweeted, “The headline kinda says it all, doesn’t it? We know the police kill. Question is whether we will ever stop funding this deadly paramilitary force and start funding things that actually keep the people of Portland safe.”

    Larson says he was only pointing out that the man invaded a stranger’s home, fought a cop, pulled a knife, and posed a threat. He tweeted “Gee @sarahforpdx you think the cops make PDX dangerous? Read the story and you find the dead man was 1) paranoid schizophrenic 2) invaded a stranger’s home 3) fought with the officer 4) pulled a knife. What’s your millennial snowflake solution to that situation without the cops?”

    And that got him banned for 12 hours after his tweet was flagged as hateful after Iannarone reported him.

    She told the paper she stands by her decision to report the account. “Right-wing Twitter is a platform predicated on inaccurate, misleading, and hateful speech, right up to the highest levels of government with our Tweeter-in-Chief.”


    1. Note to NSHQ:
      Thanks for setting me straight, Senator Mitch.
      That diatribe was just so, like, star spangled awesome!
      (I have a lifelong buddy who also trots out the standard cliches and gibberish. I keep urging him to quit sniffing the ink from the pages of his old paperback copy of “None Dare Call It Treason”.) 🙂

    2. From here:
      All this commie/lefty/socialism bashing while the current administration is made up of the poster-boys and girls for Totalitarianism – backed almost completely by evangelicals. (You go, Betsy.)
      But, I do have to appreciate that, in this scenario, at least, God is The Boss.
      The irony would be rip-snortin’ entertaining if it wasn’t so disturbing.

        The current Commander in Chief is a moderate by any definition. He’s hardly a ‘conservative’, and not exactly “backed” by evangelicals (that would be Pence). You’re projecting your fantasies instead of facing reality. It was the resurgence of “Reagan Democrats” –not far left liberals– who voted for Trump in MI, OH, PA, WI, etc. They simply couldn’t stomach an HRC regime and more America bashing by her cadre.

        Liberal progressives are the malicious petty obstructionists. Where’s the ‘bipartisanship’ negotiation now?

        Hopefully, RBG will be replaced by a -hard- right female justice, just to make liberals eat their own stew.

    3. Sarah Iannarone, communist informant. Welcome to the USSA: United Soviet Socialists of America.

      A hallmark of totalitarianism is the unceasing effort to ban anything deemed contrary to the regime.

    4. Inna-Sarah-de-BOZO is another prime example of why the Left Coast of America will be the first part to go full Banana Republic!!

    5. Now now Jim…”the most godawful, unlistenable drones.”?????
      You obviously have not listened to Sebastian Gorka! A Nazi and antisemite.
      Airing daily on religious stations all over the country.

      Larson is just a simple local hate monger. Nothing special like Gorka!

    6. They should ban Larson. Not for being a hatemonger; they should ban him for being one of the most godawful, unlistenable drones to ever besmirch the airwaves.
