Outspoken Benghazi survivor Kris Paronto had a bit of a dust-up with Twitter on Friday after one of his tweets resulted in a temporary suspension from the platform.
Paronto responded on Sunday after having his account restored by sharing a screenshot of the offending tweet, explaining:
After being in the @Twitter penalty box for a few and having to delete the below tweet for offending the leftist hate group @itmustend_ for their epic fail of telling Rob O’Neill that BHusseinObama killed UBL and not him I’m back up..sooo Twitter doesn’t censor ehh @jack ? pic.twitter.com/nLSYRcGr9e

Paronto’s initial tweet was aimed at anti-Trump account @itmustend_, who had claimed that former President Barack Obama “kinda killed Bin Laden” in a tweet directed at Robert O’Neill, the Navy SEAL who says that he was the one who actually killed Bin Laden.
He kinda killed Osama Bin Laden, so….

Paronto’s now deleted response read:
OMG??!! Did you just tell the guy who Shot Bin Laden that @BarackObama did it? BWAHAHAHA Thank you for verifying that BHussein Obama worship and TDS causes liberals to skip retard and go straight to potato. #YouAreAnIdiot #NeverGoFullRetard
Paronto’s account was restored once he deleted the offending tweet, but @itmustend_ claimed not to be the reason it was reported.
Well, I didn’t report it, I couldn’t care less and didn’t feel offended in any way.

Another possible reason for the ban was Paronto’s use of the word “retard” — despite the fact that “never go full retard” is a famous line from the movie “Tropic Thunder.”
