Nick Fuentes, Nazi-loving insurrectional and adviser to Ye, is back on Twitter

Twitter reinstated the account of Nick Fuentes, the prominent white supremacist who most recently made headlines for joining rapper Ye’s anti-Semitic presidential campaign, after a year and a half of exile from the platform.

The tech company reinstated Fuentes’ verified account on Tuesday, making him the latest extremist figure allowed on the site since the start of billionaire Elon Musk’s chaotic tenure as chief executive.

Twitter banned Fuentes in July 2021 for “repeated violations” of the rules, pushing him and his followers, many of whom call themselves “Groypers”, onto alternative social media platforms like Telegram. Fuentes created another account in October 2022 when Musk took control of the company, but quickly banned that too. Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Fuentes’ reinstatement.

Fuentes held a literal megaphone outside the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, where he could reportedly be heard encouraging supporters to storm the building.. Congress later cited Fuentes, who had been a major player in the “Stop the Steal” movement to keep Donald Trump in power after the then-president’s 2020 electoral defeat, for his involvement in the insurrection. .

In February 2022, Fuentes hosted a white supremacist conference in Florida, where he praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and led his supporters in a chant in support of Russian President Vladimir Putin. like the one in the Kremlin Bombs dropped on Ukraine.
