In response to the New York Times' decision to stand by their most recent hire - open bigot Sarah Jeong, who really hates white people, men (especially white men), and cops - black conservative Candace Owens carried out a thought experiment we mentioned last week in which we replaced the word "white" with "black" to illustrate Jeong's animus.
A sample of Jeong's controversial tweets:
Dumbass fucking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants
— sarah jeong (@sarahjeong) November 29, 2014
Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins
— sarah jeong (@sarahjeong) December 24, 2014
1) white men are bullshit
2) no one cares about women
3) you can threaten anyone on the internet except cops
— sarah jeong (@sarahjeong) January 1, 2015
In response, Owens - communications director for activist group Turning Point USA, simply replaced "white" with Jewish and Black, then condensed Jeong's statements into several tweets, for which the Twitter police banned her for 12 hours:
Black people are only fit to live underground like groveling goblins. They have stopped breeding and will all go extinct soon. I enjoy being cruel to old black women.

Double standard!! https://t.co/IVA2QmF2EM

Actually, Twitter only removed (or forced Owens to remove) her tweet about Jewish people, while the one in which she swapped the race from white to black remains as of this writing...
No Charlie, that tweet is still up.

Meanwhile, conservative pundit Ann Coulter responsded to Jeong's bigotry with a bit of a history lesson:
Luckily for Jeong, the way “white men” saw the world in the 50s was that South Korea should be free. https://t.co/QrAxph2pSj

Candace Owens copied Sarah Jeong's tweets, replacing the word "white" with "Jewish" and "black".
She was immediately given a 12 hour suspension.
Jeong's account remains unaffected.
The absolute state of this platform.#FreeCandace

Candace responded to her Twitter ban on Sunday:

As the Daily Caller noted on Sunday, Twitter says the ban was in error;
Twitter on Sunday suspended Owens’ account for 12 hours, citing her tweet about Jewish people as a violation of Twitter rules.
Twitter restored Owen’s access following a sharp backlash. The social media company chalked up Owens’ suspension as an “error.”
“Twitter takes reports of violations of the Twitter Rules very seriously,” Twitter’s support team wrote in an email to Owens, who shared it with TheDCNF. “After reviewing your account, it looks like we made an error.”
“This was our mistake and we’ve apologized to the account owner for the error,” a spokeswoman for Twitter told TheDCNF. The spokesperson did not say whether a human content monitor or an algorithm was responsible for suspending Owens’ account. -Daily Caller
Owens told Breitbart she thinks Twitter was correct to suspend her!
“I actually AGREE with Twitter” said Owens, in a comment to Breitbart News. “These tweets are an example of hateful conduct. It begs the question — why was it okay when the hate was directed at White people? Why are her tweets still up?”
“In every way imaginable — Twitter has just proved my point. Racism in this country has been sanctioned against white people.”
After word of the suspension began to go viral on social media, Twitter reversed itself and reinstated Owens’ account. -Breitbart
Was Candace also suspended for her response to Hillary Clinton's recent defense of Lebron James, who President Trump recently dissed over Twitter after James criticized Trump for fueling racial divides in the U.S.?
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 4, 2018
To which Hillary, or her social media team, replied:
.@KingJames is a great family man, incredible ballplayer, gives back to his community, and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. He’s a world class athlete and a class act. We need more like him in this world.
— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 4, 2018
And Candace Owens replied "This is rich. Your husband locked up more black men than any President in the history of the United States. You view Margaret Sanger (who wanted to exterminate the black race) as your idol and Robert Byrd (former Klansmen) as your mentor and dear friend." :
This is rich.
Your husband locked up more black men than any President in the history of the United States.
You view Margaret Sanger (who wanted to exterminate the black race) as your idol and Robert Byrd (former Klansmen) as your mentor and dear friend.
Shut up, racist. https://t.co/qXAAtvP2kU

Meanwhile, The Times has chosen to stand by Jeong - claiming that she was simply imitating other racists. Perhaps someday Twitter will let us in on what consitutes racism and harassment - since the goal posts seem to be all over the place depending on who said what.
