Social Media Platforms Jump On Hate Band-Wagon Censoring Trump
This past Wednesday was a win for leftists as a combination of the MSM and Antifa made many GOP members and Americans turn on the president. They like to claim that Trump incited the raid on the U.S. Capitol Building, but if you listen to the rally that morning Trump said nothing about breaking into the U.S. Capitol Building.
In fact, all he said is that his supporters should walk over to Capitol Hill and root for Perdue and Loeffler as we needed them to win in order to stop the Dems from having the majority in the Senate. He was just pushing for a peaceful rally. But Antifa had other plans.
As the day progressed Trump eventually called for peace and told everyone to go home. But apparently, it wasn't soon enough for Social Media platforms as Facebook and Twitter banned the president from their platforms claiming he incited violence... That's an odd comment considering BLM is still on Facebook and Twitter...
"Facebook on Thursday said it will block President Trump on its platforms at least until the end of his term on Jan. 20, as much of the mainstream online world moved forcefully to limit the president after years of inaction.
But Twitter, which had locked Mr. Trump’s account on Wednesday for posts that violated its rules, lifted the suspension, allowing the president to tweet. Late on Thursday, Mr. Trump marked his return to social media by posting a two minute 41 second video on Twitter in which he said he would support a peaceful transition of power.
Facebook and Twitter said they made their contrasting decisions for different reasons. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, said in a post that the social network decided to cut off Mr. Trump because a rampage by pro-Trump supporters in the nation’s capital a day earlier, which was urged on by the president, showed he wanted to undermine the transition to President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.
“We believe the risks of allowing the president to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” Mr. Zuckerberg wrote. As a result, he said, Facebook and its photo-sharing site Instagram would extend blocks, first put in place on Wednesday, on Mr. Trump’s ability to post “until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”
Twitter had said on Wednesday that while it saw a “risk of harm” in Mr. Trump’s messages, the company would only permanently suspend the president’s account if he continued to break its rules. Mr. Trump deleted the tweets that had prompted the locking of his account, Twitter said Thursday, starting a countdown to his access being restored."
As you can see both of these platforms overstepped. Trump did not call for violence in any of his tweets. He did call for peace and for everyone to go home but I don't see how that is an issue. But Social Media Heads are riding the coattails of the MSM with their 'Trump started a riot spiel' and that is as "Fake News" as it gets.
