Almost as bad as refusing to repress objective reality is Twitter failing to facilitate crimes carried out against conservatives. Supporting the leftist war against the Daily Wire, a criminal calling himself “Doomed” hacked Matt Walsh’s phone, providing access to years of private email correspondence. Appallingly — yet at this point unsurprisingly — senior Wired reporter Dell Cameron solicited and then published some of the stolen information.
Obviously, this got Cameron banned from Twitter. So arrogant is the liberal establishment that rather than disown Cameron, Wired whines that he should not have been banned:
Cameron ultimately got in touch with Doomed and penned a piece for Wired Wednesday, in which he described both his conversation with the hacker and the copies of stolen material that Doomed had shared with him. …
In the piece, Cameron gleefully shared personal information about Walsh gleaned from the hack and quoted from Walsh’s private correspondence.
Twitter policy states:
The use of hacks and hacking to exfiltrate information from private computer systems can be used to manipulate the public conversation, and makes all of us less secure online. We do not condone attempts to compromise or infiltrate computer systems. As such, we don’t permit the use of our services to directly distribute content obtained through hacking by the people or groups associated with a hack.
Cameron posted screened shots of hacked material on Twitter — and yet:
Following Cameron’s suspension, Wired managing editor Hemal Jhaveri issued a statement, claiming, “Neither Dell’s story nor his Twitter feed contained hacked materials. We do not believe his account violated Twitter’s policy.”
Jhaveri added, “We have not received any further explanation from Twitter and our attempts to reach Twitter’s press office were met with the customary poop emoji. We ask that the account be reinstated, and that Twitter provide an explanation.”
Walsh responded to Wired, characterizing the statement as a “flat out lie.”
If there is one thing scarier than everything else about liberal establishmentarians, it is their absence of shame. Because of it, the only limit on their behavior is what we manage to impose on them over their strident objections.
As they consolidate control of all major institutions, there will be no limit at all. Look to the Lubyanka to see how this is likely to play out.
