This morning, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a video showing the mass destruction that is unfolding across the nation. At the beginning of the video, Ronald Reagan’s voice can be heard and bolded text appears on the screen which reads: ‘If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.’
“If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.”
Truer words have never been spoken look at what’s going on today.

This moving video was created by Carpe Donktum, a twitter account ran by a Trump supporter mocking the Left in cleverly edited videos. Carpe Donktum became a worshipped content creator when President Trump began retweeting some of his videos. Unfortunately, Carpe Donktum was permanently banned from Twitter this past June over another one of his satirical videos.
The original video showed a black and a white toddler running to hug one another, a wholesome video meant to show that children can put aside each other’s differences and live in harmony. The edited version shows the black toddler was running away from the white toddler, presumably in fear, with a CNN styled headline reading: ‘Terrified toddler runs from racist baby.’ Here Carpe Donktum mocks CNN’s tactics of taking videos out of context to make them ‘newsworthy.’
After the black toddler’s father lodged a copyright claim, both Twitter and Facebook removed the video from Carpe Donktum’s account. The content creator took to Locals.com to explain his current situation:
I have been Permanently Suspended by twitter for the Todler video that President Trump tweeted last week.
I received a DMCA takedown order this morning for that video, and a few hours later a suspension letter.
Twitter has not provided me with any avenue to get my account back, so I assume they intend this to be final and permanent.
I have ALWAYS complied with DMCA takedown rules, and I have submitted counterclaims when necessary, but I have NEVER uploaded content that has been removed.
I have abided by the community guidelines, and followed the rules. It doesn’t matter.
I have been banned for being effective and they won’t even look me in the eye as they do it.
They have responded to ABC news, but not me, THE ACCOUNT HOLDER.
If you would like to support me, make noise, the only thing these people respond to is public outcry.
