Twitter Suspends Account of Benghazi Hero Kris “Tanto” Paronto

On the heels of permanently banning Alex Jones for confronting the CNN reporter that lobbied the social media giants of Silicon Valley to ban him, Twitter has decided to silence another conservative voice.

Twitter suspended Benghazi hero Kris “Tanto” Paronto, who was portrayed in the blockbuster “13 Hours”, for pointing out that Obama didn’t kill Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and mocking Obama for calling the Benghazi attacks a conspiracy theory.

The first tweet came on Friday after former President Obama called the Benghazi attack a conspiracy theory suggesting that no one in his administration gave a stand down order.

In the days after the attack, the Obama administration went on the Sunday morning news shows to claim the attack was spontaneous and in response to an anti-Muslim video. The administration knew this to be false at the time they were spreading the rumor.

In the tweet, Paronto took issue with Obama’s assertions that he made during his anti-Trump rally, but this tweet wasn’t what got Paronto suspended from Twitter.

Former SEAL Team Six member Robert O’Neill responded to the Obama’s anti-Trump speech by saying, “Nazis are bad. Now try saying ‘Radical Islam…’”

A rabid anti-Trump Twitter account that uses the name ‘Secret Society Alumnus’ responded to O’Neill by saying, “He kinda killed Osama Bin Laden, so….”

It was apparent from the Tweet that the Twitter user did not know who Rob O’Neill was in regards in the bin Laden raid. O’Neill wasn’t just on the raid into Pakistan that ended the terror mastermind’s life. He was the Navy SEAL that fired the shot from his rifle that killed bin Laden.

O’Neill himself responded with a Tweet saying, “Do you know who you’re talking to?”

Paronto jumped in and Tweeted that the leftist account. Like many others on Twitter, he was surprised that the Twitter user didn’t realize who he was Tweeting at with his failed troll attempt.

Paronto’s response to the Tweet reads:

“OMG ??!! Did you just tell the guy who Shot Bin Laden that @BarackObama did it ?? BWAHAHAHA. Thank you for verifying that BHusseinObama worship and TDS causes liberalists to skip retard and go straight to potato. #YouAreAnIdiot #NeverGoFullRetard”

At that point, Twitter stepped in and temporarily suspended Paronto’s account for mocking ‘Secret Society Alumnus’ for being uneducated and uninformed.

Paronto found out that Twitter suspended him while he was at an airport and took to Instagram to voice his dismay over the suspension. The post shows him sitting in a chair with a bewildered look on his face.

Paronto’s Instagram post reads:

“The look you make when you’re tired, sitting at the airport waiting for a flight and you see your @twitter account has been suspended for calling out a liberal hate group and their dumbass comments 🙄….yes boys and girls …. and leftists, we have the right to free speech but only if it fits the leftists narrative, doesn’t show their stupidity and ignorance and most importantly doesn’t hurt their fragile little egos . “

Twitter eventually rescinded the suspension, but only after forcing Paronto to delete his mocking Tweet.

Paronto shared a picture of his now-deleted tweet and wrote:

AmmoLand reached out to Twitter and Twitter CEO’s Jack Dorse directly to get a comment on the suspension, but our request went unreturned.
