Twitter flags Trump tweet for “inciting violence” – leaves thousands of tweets by blacks calling for the deaths of whites intact

reality circuit-

Doubling down on their “fact check” of President Trump just the other day, Twitter has censored one of President Trump’s tweets in regards to the Minneapolis riots. “These thugs are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen” Trump said in a tweet. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you” tweeted the President at 12:53, Eastern Time.

Within two hours, the tweet was masked by a disclaimer stating that the tweet “violated the Twitter rules about glorifying violence” and all interaction was removed.

This monumental action comes on the heels of Trump’s executive order aimed at curbing big tech censorship. Those in favor of the action argue that companies like Twitter operate as publishers, not public platforms. If Jack Dorsey is able to control what is said, what trends and who is allowed to be on Twitter, they argue that the platform should not be entitled to section 230 protections. Section 230 essentially requires social media platforms to act as neutral forums. If the content is being meddled with, the company is far from a neutral forum and shouldn’t gain any special privileges.

There has been a repeated pattern of social media censorship against conservatives over the years; with terms of service violations being selectively applied.

  1. TWITTER IS FUCKING TOAST. They are too arrogant to see it yet.

    I’ve always maintained that PRESIDENT Trump would lay the hammer down on Big Tech. I just thought since he would have more power after the election he’d wait but glad I was off on that assessment!

    Oh. And does everybody notice the ENTIRE left cannot keep up with him? 🤣

  2. Liberals can do anything they want. Because they know that there are never any consequences to them. Thanks to our republican congressmen and senators. They have oversight over the doj and fbi. They do nothing at all as the doj and fbi go completely rogue. They have piss running down their leagues from the fear of what might happen if they object to the doj and fbi being a communist queer dnc front group.

  3. How come, in journospeak, Twitter is having a “row” with Trump, but Trump is at “war” with Twitter? I’m just raising questions.

  4. Some obama judge is going to rule agains’t Trump on this because first it will get challenged in the 9th circuit banana court.

  5. One guy says they have the right to burn down a country they built?

    What? We all know they picked cotton. In their spare time did they build something other than plantation shacks?

    I hold nothing against slaves, but c’mon, lots of different people built this country, probably 99% of it thru free labor. Jefferson Starship claimed they built the city of San Francisco on Rock & Roll. Of course, they did a suck poor job of it.
