Twitter Suspends Account of Benghazi Hero Kris “Tanto” Paronto

U.S.A.-( 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.

I’ve had my doubts whether O’neil actually killed Bin Laden , the corruption and lies of our government causes those doubts.


It’s all about the zeros, stop buying into them they may change their way of doing things.


I. Mean, it does start with T W I T here, right?

I would pay to join if Mike Reagan would make a Facebook like program similar to the email ssrvice where the commies could be banned.

Lisa Lisa

I thought all voices were able to have the freedom of speech, regardless of disagreement. This was a black man, an illegal immigrant or a gay or transgender, their account would not be suspended. While I don’t follow this man personally, I think this is dirty pool on twitter’s part!


WOW! That’s insane!! He calls out O’ for the lying sack of crap he is then they ban him for hurting the feelers of some leftist troll? I thinks not! They banned him for hurting the feelers of some leftist twit turd inside twitter. If hurt feelings was all it took to get banned, there would be no Twitter!!!

Kenny Smith

I for one am hoping that a decent social media outlet of some kind get a program together so us conservatives can speak against the evil leftist of this country without being edited out. I would be one of the first people to join and leave behind ,Facebook , Twitter and Google !!!!!!!!!!!!! And a decent search engine that doesn’t send you to some leftist crap when you want what you want !!!! Nuff said !


Let me know if you find a Conservative substitute for FB, I can’t stand these Leftist Twits and their Blatant Lies.

dava golino

all these traitors, to many traitors to name here like, Kerry, Obama, Clinton’s, Bush Jr., Clapper, Lynch, Comey, Mueller, Judges who release Muslim child murders, tech CEO that sell secrets to communist China, on and on. all this anti American, pro EU TREASON Keeps happening because no one makes them pay for anything. this is a cancer. it has always been good against evil, however due to what is allowed in our schools for the past 45 years and what became normal in entertainment, the line between good a evil is blurred. these left,EU WHATEVER NAME YOU PUT ON IT,IT… Read more »


The Social and Lame-Street media are a propaganda arm of George Soros and the DNC. They ARE enemies of the American people!


If you haven’t figured it out yet, Farcebook, Goggle and Twitspace are all tools of the deep state government being controlled by the progressive left. I seriously doubt that any “oversight” will be applied until the deep state is dealt a death blow. I’m not holding my breath…..


Twitter and google need to be regulated JUST like a utility!
I HATE more gub’ment, but these platforms have become TOO powerful and need reigning in. This isn’t “free speech”, it’s too one sided towards LIBTARDS and conservatives are being omitted.

Clark Kent

So why don’t you form a social media platform and then you can regulate it all you want? The government has no business regulating ANY speech from ANY source. Grow up.

Ansel Hazen

True indeed, so where is the call for Government to enforce the 1A? They are in fact charged with upholding the laws of this country.


I don’t use Twitter or any of those social media because I feel that they are becoming the “Nazis” of the 21st Century. Because you post an opinion opposed to the PC crowd, you get suspended or deleted ala Alex Jones. Benghazi is one of the greatest recent demonstrations as to why “The Swamp” needs to be drained. When four Americans, including a US Ambassador are murdered, and there are zero repercussions for the doers or the people at the Department of State, and in the Administration, who allowed it to happen, there is a serious need for an internal… Read more »


Social networks such as Twitter, Facebook,, need to be classified by Federal Codes as COMMON CARRIERS, just like the telephone service. It would remove them from their censorship of all ( read here “Conservative”) users of their systems and subject them to performance standards under the aegis of Public Interest, Convenience, or Necessity!

Clark Kent

As private businesses they have the right to make decisions regarding content. Just as your local newspaper can refuse to publish certain letters to the editor. Nice try; no cigar.


Best thing to do with social media such as twitter or facebook is don’t use them.

Clark Kent

AMEN! NOW we have someone who understands how to collectively put pressure on private businesses!

Dennis F. Connolly

So sick of TWITTER, FACEBOOK and all the liberal social media sites not understanding what freedom of speech means. They should be ashamed of themselves for cancelling, even for a second the account of these AMERICAN HERO’S.

Doug Anderson

Nope, these leftist sites and MSM know EXACTLY what freedom of speech means…..and how important it is that THEY be able to control and manipulate the words, thoughts, and beliefs of American citizens so they can advance their socialist/communist agenda.


I was hoping that this story got highlighted here. Kris tells it like it is. Does not hold much back if anything at all. I’ll tell you this it was one great conference call he gave during election night in 2016.
All the Benghazi Team (except Jack?) have orgs that help other vets, worthwhile causes and the fallen HEROES on what was a despicable moment in time. So, if you can donate and/or buy at their respective websites please do so.

P.S. For Tanto (and All). ‘RLTW’!

Gr4een Mtn. Boy

Perhaps the former pResident has watched one too many 007 films,Obowelmovement ,Barack Insane Obowelmovment.

Eff the twits of twitter.

Angela Wellejus

Nothing to add to the above article except that it’s so refreshing to hear people speaking the plain undistorted truth. Thank you Rob O’Neill and Kris Paronto, not just for your service, but for speaking the truth and making me laugh at the same time.


I signed on Facebook only to try and win a Glock pistol. Very soon after I signed off. I am not on any of those social media left wing places will never be. I did not win the pistol by the way.
