White nationalists on Twitter were dealt a blow on Friday when the platform permanently suspended the account of Nick Fuentes for presumably doing Nick Fuentes things such as denying the Holocaust and endorsing Jim Crow segregation.
For many, Twitter’s efforts to rid its platform of this kind of vile stuff is a welcome development. But to Ohio Republican U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Vance, the suspension is just another example of Big Tech overreach:
Nick Fuentes has been a giant troll (and IMO dishonest) in his attacks against me. Don’t care.
Tech companies control what we’re allowed to say in our own country. It has to stop. pic.twitter.com/lmSSzsDnxx
