It’s pretty much general knowledge that Twitter, which has been lax in enforcing its rules and terms of service, has become a cesspool of right-wing and racist hate speech.

The poster child for Twitter’s racist problem is one Andie Pauly of Cicero, Illinois.

Olivia Crellin’s backgrounder on Pauly, first published a year ago, documented many of her atrocities – and brought international attention to Twitter’s failure to quell abuses.

Hanging. How truly Klannish… ahem, clannish of her!

But I digress…

Pauly was suspended from Twitter in May 2016, but was reinstated several weeks later.

Over the weekend, Pauly’s account was suspended again. Pauly has moved her social media presence to, a site that welcomes and nurtures all sorts of hard-right bile, and has claimed that she was banned for posting a misogynist (and, Frankly [as in Sinatra], lame) meme with an old photo of Dean Martin.

A source connected to Twitter management tells NBB that she was in fact suspended for harassment of multiple users, promoting the same along with mass reporting of accounts, and “d0xing” – gathering and posting personal information on users who called out her online hate speech.

That last one is pretty comical – because Conover had revealed her identity on the must-read Freakout Nation blog half a year earlier.

Hello, Andie. There’s this thing called Google.

You should try it sometime.

It’s cheaper than Starbuck’s (worst mass-made burnt-tasting coffee ever, by the way) gift cards.

A big hat tip to Andie’s sister and niece for the candid photos.
