Twitter has completely banned white nationalist David Duke for repeatedly violating its rules about “hateful conduct”.

The social community modified its coverage in March and not lets folks share hyperlinks to articles that embody “hateful content” or incite violence.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an anti-hate organisation, describes Duke as “perhaps America’s most well-known racist and anti-Semite”.

He was banned from YouTube in June.

Duke’s last tweet linked to an interview he had performed with Germar Rudolf, who was convicted of Holocaust denial in Germany the place it’s a legal offence.

His penultimate tweet promised to reveal the “systemic racism lie”, whereas one other claimed to reveal the “incitement of violence against white people” by Jewish-owned media.

Duke based the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan within the 1970s.

He pleaded responsible to tax fraud in 2002 and spent a yr in a US jail.
