Canadian leftists abuse Twitter’s ‘flag spam’ function to shut down conservative account
Last week, I told you about this phenomenon, at Taki’s.

On Tuesday EthicalOil.org released a video calling out LUSH Cosmetics for their ethical hypocrisy.

But those opposed to our efforts apparently don’t want to debate. Instead [former] Rabble.ca contributor Alheli Picazo and her cadre of activists have taken a page from the Saudi playbook to censor those with political view points they disagree with.
Rather than attempt to rebut or refute what we said, Picazo did what the Saudis would do: CENSORSHIP!
