Twitter, the left-wing social media network that in recent days has been accused of censoring credible media reports and U.S. government officials, is facing backlash for looking the other way after a maniacal Muslim wrote Muslims have the right “to kill.”

In a tweet posted Thursday morning, former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad responded to recent terror attacks in France by writing that “Muslims have a right to be angry and to kill millions of French people for the massacres of the past.”

Shortly after Mohamad posted the hateful tweet, Twitter added nothing more than a meager warning label to the tweet.

“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” the warning read.

Look:

The double standard provoked widespread outrage against Twitter, which is already under fire for its habitual censorship of conservative voices.

Earlier this month it censored the New York Post’s reporting after the 218-year-old outlet published a bombshell report containing since-verified allegations about Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.

Then on Wednesday, it censored U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan.

Yet on Thursday, it initially chose not to censor a Muslim man who’d justified the murder of “millions” of people.

Look at the backlash below:

Take note of the latter tweet. Simon Dolan, a British businessman and entrepreneur, was suspended from Twitter on Thursday for reportedly arguing against lockdown policies.

While a bipartisan coalition of doctors and scientists have complained about lockdown policies, the media have framed such concerns as “conservative.”

So naturally, when Dolan touted this “conservative” position on Twitter, he faced consequences for it no different than the ones faced by CBP Commission Mark Morgan, who was suspended on Wednesday for pointing out that the Trump administration’s construction of a border wall has prevented illegal alien criminals from entering the U.S.

As for Mohamad’s hateful tweet, it remained up for hours. Not until the French government involved itself in the matter did Twitter finally relent.

In a tweet posted at 9:51 am EST, French Secretary of State for the Digital Sector Cédric O revealed that he’d asked Twitter to suspend Mohamad’s account and warned that “Twitter can not be complicit in a call to crime,” according to a translation.

Look at the original tweet below:

Over an hour later, Twitter reportedly finally bent the knee:

Better late than never? While that may be so, the far-left social media network’s hesitance at removing a tweet that justified the murder of millions of people will likely not help Twitter regain any of the trust its jettisoned this year and continues to jettison by the minute.
