Twitter censors police data on African migrant violence in Catalonia

The suspension of the Twitter account of Spanish conservative party Vox shows that the Left does not want to debate on equal terms, writes Małgorzata Wołczyk for Polish portal dorzeczy.pl

Twitter recently decided to suspend the account of Spanish conservative-liberal party Vox for a week. The reason was a tweet that cited police sources saying migrant minors are responsible for 93 percent of the complaints filed with police while only making up 0.2 percent of Catalonia’s population. The tweet also pointed out that the majority of the minors came from the Maghreb.

The entry was accompanied by a #stopislamization hashtag. It did not contain any threats or calls for violence — nothing that even an overzealous political correct censor could consider hate speech. The data came from police statistics; it is hard to see numbers as troublemakers or xenophobic. They simply reveal the sad truth about the criminal inclinations of young arrivals from the Maghreb (North Africa) who conflict with the law much more often than indigenous Europeans.

Leftist censors seem to be insulted by math because it mercilessly shows the failure of multiculturalism.

This is not the first time that publishing police data concerning violence and terror among young migrants has caused social media censorship in Spain. Last year during the pandemic, when Spaniards were under lockdown in their regions and sometimes even in the districts they lived in, record numbers of migrants from the Maghreb, a part of Africa not currently affected by any wars, were arriving in the Iberian peninsula.
