From CBC:

Twitter restricted People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier’s account, preventing him from posting any new messages for 12 hours after he used the platform to encourage his supporters to “play dirty” with journalists covering his campaign.

The offending tweets singled out three reporters, calling them “idiots” and describing their efforts to question him as “disgusting smear jobs.” Bernier tweeted out their email addresses and encouraged his followers to “play dirty.”

    Reminds me of something David French said in an interview recently regarding this sort of descent into radicalization and uber-polarization: people (like Max) spend all their time stewing in their own uber-partisan swamp and end up following their Tribe wherever their Tribe goes. That becomes their attitude: where my Tribe goes, I must go.

    Clearly Max is stewing in all of this journalist hatred that is absolutely infecting the hard right these days. Putin and his buddies order hits on journalists. So do organized criminals in Malta. Note to Max and his supporters: being like Putin is not a good look.

      Doc,

      Giving advice to the intended party in this instance is like watching paint dry. The ultimate outcome is both predetermined and unalterable…

    I didn’t know Twitter was in cahoots with the Liberal-friendly Leaders’ Debates Commission.
