I love Cancel Culture, and so should you:
The Star of David has been deemed “hateful imagery” by Twitter, which is locking the accounts of users who display it in their profile pictures. The Campaign Against Antisemitism has reported that several Twitter users have contacted them in recent days to report that their accounts had been locked by the social media platform. The reason given? According to messages they received from Twitter: “We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically for: Violating our rules against posting hateful imagery. You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. As a result, we have locked your account.”
I as usual disagree with the description “hateful” (should be “racist” instead), but of course agree with the spirit of the lockout. At last, awareness of the Star of David as a symbol of Jewish racism towards non-Jews is filtering into mainstream consciousness! Frankly, I never understood why it took so long. David was an obvious racist according to the Tanakh itself:
GodYahweh is angered when Saul, Israel’s king, unlawfully offers a sacrifice and later disobeys a divine command both to kill all of the Amalekites and to destroy their confiscated property. Consequently, GodYahweh sends the prophet Samuel to anoint a shepherd, David, the youngest son of Jesse of Bethlehem, to be king instead.
Achish permits David to reside in Ziklag, close to the border between Gath and Judea, from where he leads raids against the Geshurites, the Girzites and the Amalekites [ie. non-Jews], but leads Achish to believe he is attacking the Israelites in Judah, the Jerahmeelites and the Kenites [ie. Jews].
He conquers Jerusalem, previously a Jebusite [ie. non-Jew] stronghold, and makes it his capital.
David wins additional victories over the Philistines, Moabites, Edomites, Amalekites, Ammonites and king Hadadezer of Aram-Zobah, [ie.-non-Jews] after which they become tributaries.
so any symbol celebrating him should have been effortlessly recognized as racist.
Next, Twitter should treat the menorah similarly. Part of the emblem of Israel (as well as the Seal of Mossad):
it represents in Judaism the ambition to build the Third Temple:
which motivated the creation of Israel and continues to motivate the ongoing land grabs.
Back to the first link:
This is not the first time that Twitter has come in for criticism over apparent endemic antisemitism. Last week the platform was accused of inciting anti-Jewish hatred after it refused to take action when the hashtag #JewishPrivilege began trending.

And again, we do not support mere financial reparations, which we view as bribery of the victims of racism to placate them into dropping charges. Instead, we plead that victims of racism refuse to be satisfied with anything less than all racist bloodlines being prohibited from reproducing. Racism will only end when racist bloodlines no longer exist. The best Cancel Culture is genetic Cancel Culture (a.k.a. Aryanization).
