The woman running against Ilhan Omar has officially been banned from Twitter after posting something that violated the company’s “terms of service”.
Danielle Stella, one of five Republican candidates hoping to battle Omar for Minnesota’s fifth congressional seat in 2020, was banned from the platform on Thursday after suggesting the freshman Democrat “should be tried for treason and hanged” if unproven allegations against her were true.
Stella sent two tweets appearing to reference unverified claims that Omar is a Qatari asset using her position of power to funnel information to Qatar and Iran. A spokesperson for Omar condemned the allegations as Saudi Arabian misinformation.
For the record, the punishment for treason is hanging. Perhaps that’s why democrats were pushing the anti-lynching bill earlier this year…
Stella has since responded, but she’s not walking back what she said:
There are MANY hypocrites rage posting here. Breathe, think this through, logically. To clarify, I said, “If it is proven ____ passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged”. Treason is the only thing mentioned in the constitution for the death penalty, punishable by hanging or firing squad. I believe all involved should be thoroughly investigated. I did not threaten anyone. If you are calling it a threat- you believe that individual is guilty, and therefore it is not a threat, it’s treason. You and the fake news #MSM are lying by calling it lynching or terroristic threats. I believe all traitors to our Country need to be tried for their many crimes. I’ve been outspoken about HRC crime family, BH0, S0R0S and others as well. You are making this into something it’s not. You are making it about race, about religion, about anything but the truth. While doing so, you are sending heinous comments, actual death threats, threats of bodily harm, threats to my friends, supporters, threats to post private photos, insulting/attacking my religion, intelligence, race, gender, mental health, physical health, appearance, labeling me with many disorders and diagnoses, and using very non-PC language to do so. What you’re doing is reprehensible and speaks to your flawed souls and damaged psyches. The only death threats I’m seeing is from the angry liberal mob where facts don’t matter, only emotion, and you’re somehow thinking you’re righteous by threatening my life, my supporters’ lives, my loved ones lives? No, this is wrong. You are hypocrites. The angry liberal mob does this frequently to our President Donald J. Trump and his family, and never are held accountable for your hatred, your violence, your many threats, or heinous posts like Kathy Griffin.
