Big Tech social media giant Twitter barred their users from liking, replying to, or even retweeting President Donald Trump’s video calling for peace on Wednesday afternoon.
Trump held the emergency press conference in response to repeated calls for him to tell his supporters to stand down after they had breached the Capital building.
What was Twitter’s reasoning? Fact checkers had disputed some of the claims made by the President in his call for peace!
They didn’t like that Trump repeatedly referred to the November election as “fraudulent” or “stolen from us.” So they didn’t allow their users to share his message that also told the people inside the Capital building to go home.
In his message, President Trump said, “You have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt.”
“This was a fraudulent election. But we can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So go home. We love you. You’re very special,” he continued. “You’ve seen what happens. You see the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel, but go home and go home in peace.”
Silencing The President Is Within Their Purview?
This is not the first time that Twitter has taken it upon themselves to silence the leader of the free world.
Even before the election, Twitter had repeatedly censored the president, limiting the number of interactions users can have with his posts, including liking, sharing, and commenting over any election-related claims that they consider to be “disputed.”
Most egregiously, on November 3rd — on election day itself– the tech giant censored Trump’s tweets alleging that the Democrats were attempting to “steal the election,” claiming it was “misleading about an election or other civic process.”
Don’t forget this.
Big Tech intentionally silenced the President while he called for peace. There isn’t a lower form of scum on this planet.
