So long as children (or their parents) are conservative and someone calling for violence against them is “verified” with that little blue check mark, Twitter will look the other way despite its well-documented history of using its anti-violence policy to crack down on opposition to the Left.

The founders were clear that the First Amendment is not unlimited, and we have just discovered its boundaries.
