It’s another sad day in America…Big Tech is showing its true colors by openly shutting down free speech. They played a cat and mouse game by shadow banning conservatives and ‘fact-checking’ to limit reach. They went for full censorship today when they suddenly “permanently suspended” President Trump’s account. This while Antifa and BLM are still on the social media platform organizing riots and destruction.
This is the only way Trump could speak directly to the American people to tell them the truth. This is huge. It’s being reported that FLOTUS and POTUS have just joined Parler.
Twitter released a statement saying:
“After a close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them, we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence. In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action. Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open. However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules and cannot use Twitter to incite violence. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement.”

The two tweets from President Trump that Twitter thinks would “incite violence” are below:
“The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”
“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”
President Trump should have pushed harder to get rid of Section 230. Big Tech has too much power, and now it’s too late.
