Wealthy Liberal CEO: Certain Capitalists Will Be The First Ones Lined Up and Shot

Dick Costolo, a wealthy liberal, calls for certain capitalists to face the firing squad

The former CEO of a major company recently tweeted that “me-first capitalists” who disagree with allowing leftist activism in the workplace will be “the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution.”

Dick Costolo, the former CEO of Twitter, happily wrote on his old platform that “capitalists” who won’t get involved with social justice causes should face the firing squad. At the time of this publication, the tweet has been removed, though many are unsure whether Costolo deleted it or Twitter did.

Twitter has strong rules against promoting violence, though they often apply the rules unfairly. They have been known to remove posts by conservatives under that rule, even if their post does not directly promote violence, while allowing posts by those on the left that openly call for violent action. Twitter guidelines say: “You may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people. We also prohibit the glorification of violence.”

“This tweet is an actual violation of twitter TOS for glorifying violence. That aside, thanks for publicly endorsing the mass murder of your political adversaries. This is clarifying,” conservative filmmaker Mike Cernovich replied.

Twitter has not yet released a statement regarding the tweet, or whether it violates any policies.

Costolo was referencing a discussion by Brian Armstrong, the CEO of Coinbase, a cryptocurrency firm, where the CEO decided not to promote political activism or social justice within the company.

Armstrong wrote a blog post on Medium.com about the decision, stating: “We don’t engage here when issues are unrelated to our core mission, because we believe impact only comes with focus.” The post also discussed politics, with the CEO saying: “We don’t advocate for any particular causes or candidates internally that are unrelated to our mission, because it is a distraction from our mission. Even if we all agree something is a problem, we may not all agree on the solution.”

Costolo, disagreeing with Armstrong, commented stating: “This isn’t great leadership. It’s the abdication of leadership. It’s the equivalent of telling your employees to ‘shut up and dribble.’”

When Costolo’s argument was challenged on Twitter, he replied that “me-first capitalists” will be the “first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution.” He also added that he would “happily provide video commentary.”

Dick Costolo deleted Twitter post

Multiple news outlets have reached out to Twitter for a comment on the since-deleted tweet. Many conservatives noted that they have been suspended for less:

Conservative commentator Jack Posobiec also called out the fact that the former Twitter CEO is on the Board of Directors at subscription platform Patreon:

Twitter has censored President Trump in the past, claiming that he “glorified violence.” The company has also censored multiple posts by conservatives against ANTIFA. Yet they continually allow the left to post unhinged and often violent content on their platform.


  1. Mr costolo should mind his words…. Careful what you wish for there big boy… this isn’t going to end well for the left.

  2. Dick Costolo, the former CEO of Twitter, happily wrote on his old platform that “capitalists” who won’t get involved with social justice causes should face the firing squad. This is a fascist murderer who sold out to the Totalitarian Democratic Party, Corporate Cancel Culture and the ChiCom satanic Government to destroy millions of lives and the American Economy as well. He himself in the end will be murdered by the ChiComs also.

  3. Dear “Tiny” Dick Costolo . I am sending you an invitation to join ME at the rifle range. You may hold my target , at 200 yards , or , three hundred yards. The target should be held to were it is slightly below your slack jaw.
    The timing is critical. I have others who also require holding my targets. You may elect to go first , or last. AT 3250 feet per second , please decide quickly.
    Respectfully , a bullet with your name

  4. You get paid to perform your job to the best of your abilities. That’s why you were hired. No one wants to hear your political or social justice rants based on zero facts. The basic premise of advancement opportunities in the workplace s/b the best candidate for the job should get it regardless of color, faith, nationality, whatever. Diversity and inclusion are just more buzz words for libs to try and force business to hire and promote unqualified, uneducated individuals because they don’t want to put in the work to succeed. So much for inclusion and social justice. Is you are overlooked for hiring and advancement when you are the most qualified, that is discrimination period and you should begin your lawsuit. I don’t see the NBA, NFL, MLB, the Black TV Network and others going out of their way to promote Non -black diversity and social justice even though at least 90% of these athletes and actors/actresses in these business are predominantly black. The best individuals have been hired to fill the positions regardless of color, nationality etc. If the rules of diversity and social justice rules don’t apply in these situations, then they should not apply in any business situation.

  5. So with that statement dick Costolo – it would be fair to say according to your thought – it would be fine for me-first capitalists to line you up because they disagree with your socialist ideas.
