Image Comics Founder Suspended From Twitter For Violent Threats

Usually in the context of Twitter we’re talking about people getting suspended for saying obvious truths like “there are two genders,” but every now and again, some of the comic professionals go full-tilt hateful to where even Twitter can’t let it slide:

Erik Larsen, founder of Image Comics, posted to his Instagram that Twitter suspended him for making violent threats against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Larsen has a very long history of making excessively angry and perhaps dangerous tweets about people on the right, on par with many pros in the comic book industry.

It’s always shocking to see how deranged these creators are, but this is why they don’t make stories that resonate with normal readers anymore. When you’re so clouded with obscene anger, you can’t create the sense of wonder required for the action-adventure genre which is necessarily about hope, optimism, and the betterment of mankind.

    This should be a lesson for McConnell. If he doesn’t contest the vote-fraud by the Biden-camp then a punch from Larsen is the best thanks he can expect from them. What valid reason could he have for not going all the way in trying to keep the election from being stolen from Trump? People like Larsen will never appreciate McConnell’s efforts to conceal vote-fraud by Biden.

    Yeah, like the California Democratic official who suggested deprogramming for Trump supporters…he didn’t get kicked off. Even though he’s a blue check mark he only gets 10 replies or a dozen or less likes on his tweets so maybe he just doesn’t reach Twitter’s radar!
