The American radical left are on the warpath against conservative ideology, thought and discourse and their mental breakdowns over Hillary Clinton’s loss in the presidential election is having repercussions all over the country.
From college students running to their safe spaces and crying rooms to BLM activists making threats and mainstream media anchors constantly analyzing their pre-election predictions and lamenting over how and why everything went so wrong.
The quick answer is, they all failed to consider that mainstream “conservative” America would completely reject the Obama and Clinton cooperative effort to take over control of the government by hook or by crook, and convert the US into a Socialist worker’s paradise where everyone but the elites are all equally poor, miserable and afraid.
In line with the benevolence of the “hateful left,” Twitter and other social media sites are pledging to crack down on so called “fake news” sites and the ones they are concentrating on just also happen to be some of the most respected conservative news sites on the web.
Zero Hedge clarifies:
Since November 8th, the mainstream media and the social media giants of Silicon Valley have launched an all-out crusade against so-called “fake news” sources (of which we’re apparently one). Twitter has gone so far as to purge dozens of “alt-right” accounts and just yesterday Reddit CEO, Steve Huffman, announced that he too would ban the “most toxic” Trump supporters who had the audacity to call him names after he abused his administrative privileges to alter other people text threads.
While this is clearly a politically-motivated crusade, one would expect that the newly elected President of the United States and leader of the Republican party, a man who received 60 million votes, would be safe from persecution, right? Well, apparently not, according to an article published by Slate:
Asked whether Twitter would ever consider banning key government officials or even the president himself, a company spokesperson responded via email: “The Twitter Rules prohibit violent threats, harassment, hateful conduct, and multiple account abuse, and we will take action on accounts violating those policies.” Pressed on whether that meant that, hypothetically, Trump himself could be suspended were he to violate those policies, a spokesperson confirmed: “The Twitter Rules apply to all accounts, including verified accounts.”
All of which brings up several important questions. Does calling Chuck Todd a moron or Barney Frank disgusting fall into the “harassment” or “hateful conduct” bucket? Are comments such as these exempt if they can be proven to be factually accurate? All tough questions that need to be sorted out.
