Yesterday, President Trump tweeted about the danger to the integrity of our elections if the Democrats scheme to make mail-in-ballots becomes a reality.
There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mailboxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed. The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one. That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!
Yoel Roth, Twitter’s head of integrity slapped a warning on both of Trump’s tweets, cautioning readers that despite the president’s claims, “fact-checkers” say there is “no evidence” that mail-in voting would increase fraud risks — and that “experts say mail-in ballots are very rarely linked to voter fraud.”
Yoel Roth has a history of vile attacks on President Trump, calling him a “racist tangerine,” only two days after Trump won the presidential election.
Two days after President Trump’s inauguration, Roth, Twitter’s “head of integrity” for their platform, said there were “ACTUAL NAZIS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.”
Curiously, Roth’s blatantly false comment was not fact-checked or flagged by Twitter.
A furious Trump clapped back at Twitter yesterday, warning Americans that Twitter is “interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election.” He continued, “They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post.”
This morning, after it was discovered that the person behind the “fact-check” on Trump’s tweet is a virulent anti-Trumper, he tweeted, “Twitter has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their other compatriots) is correct. Big action to follow!”
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO), who’s been openly advocating for reigning in big tech censorship, tweeted a copy of a letter he sent to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. In his tweet, he asked Dorsey a few questions:
@jack a few questions for you below. Bottom line: Why should@twitter continue to get special treatment from government as a mere distributor of other people’s content if you are going to editorialize and comment like a publisher? Shouldn’t you be treated like a publisher?
I will introduce legislation to end these special government giveaways. If @Twitter wants to editorialize & comment on users’ posts, it should be divested of its special status under federal law (Section 230) & forced to play by same rules as all other publishers. Fair is fair

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) jumped into the fray this morning, tweeting:
The law still protects social media companies like @Twitter because they are considered forums, not publishers. But if they have now decided to exercise an editorial role like a publisher then they should no longer be shielded from liability & treated as publishers under the law.

As victims of Google (we made their blacklist), Facebook (we’ve lost over 90% of our traffic since President Trump’s inauguration) and Twitter, who repeatedly hides our content from their feed, we are very hopeful that something can be done about this situation—and quickly! The Democrats and their allies in the media, along with tech giants like Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are going to pull out all of the stops leading up to the November election. Our feckless lawmakers have been given ample time to do something to stop the dirty censorship tricks being used by big tech giants, and instead, they’ve chosen to ignore it. It’s time for President Trump to step in and end the censorship nightmare for conservatives
