(Tea Party PAC) – Twitter is proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is most definitely an agenda driven plan to censor those who might have a worldview or policy stance that goes against the group think of the progressive platform, especially by attempting to silence the voice of the president when he speaks out against violent rioting and looting like the kind going on in Minneapolis right now.
President Trump posted a tweet on the social media platform denouncing the violent response to the death of George Floyd, who was unnecessarily killed by a police officer, stating that these individuals were “dishonoring the memory” of Floyd. He also warned them if they didn’t stop, he’d send in the military saying, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
Twitter responded to this tweet by saying it “glorified violence” leading them to hide the tweet and require folks who want to see it to click an arrow. They also attached a message to it explaining why it’s hidden.
But guess what? Plenty of folks on Twitter are supportive of these hooligans and their criminal actions. Do you think Twitter censored their tweets as “glorifying violence?” Nope.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire:
“I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right,” Trump tweeted. “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”
When Trump’s tweet is embedded in a post it does not show the censorship label that Twitter applied:
….These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!

However, a screenshot of the tweet on Twitter’s platform shows the censorship label that Twitter applied:
So the president states that he’s against violence in response to this situation, acknowledging that folks are dishonoring the memory of the man who lost his life for no reason in this situation, and is trying to bring order to the chaos, and that is what gets labeled as glorifying violence? Really?
Meanwhile, folks can get on Twitter and support this crap and that’s perfectly okay? You know why? Because Twitter is afraid. They don’t want to upset their progressive overlords. They want to stay in the good graces of the social justice nazis populating their site so they can still get traffic and clicks to keep those advertising dollars rolling into the coffers.
At the end of the day, their revenue, and the liberal agenda, is far more important than an entire American city. Remember that, folks. Remember that.
In a statement, Twitter Comms said: “This Tweet violates our policies regarding the glorification of violence based on the historical context of the last line, its connection to violence, and the risk it could inspire similar actions today.”
“We’ve taken action in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts, but have kept the Tweet on Twitter because it is important that the public still be able to see the Tweet given its relevance to ongoing matters of public importance,” Twitter added. “As is standard with this notice, engagements with the Tweet will be limited. People will be able to Retweet with Comment, but will not be able to Like, Reply or Retweet it.”
Keep in mind that Twitter’s assault against free speech and the president comes hot on the heels of Trump signing an executive order against Big Tech for censorship. Guess they didn’t like that too much, huh?
Twitter took no action against numerous tweets that appeared to encourage rioting, destruction of property, or fighting against law enforcement.
The following controversial tweets, which Twitter did not take any action against, are from public figures or they are tweets that went viral on the platform and garnered tens of thousands of retweets:
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has ties to Black Lives Matter and his company “painted #blacklivesmatter on a wall at its San Francisco headquarters, placing the company squarely into the national debate about excessive force used by police with blacks,” USA Today reported in 2014.
When these folks try to equate what they are doing to the Boston Tea Party, they clearly do not understand history. Listen, what this cop did was heinous. If the facts come in — and there’s already an obvious strong case against him with the video — then he deserves prison for murdering this poor man. If we can’t all agree on that, there’s definitely a problem.
And it’s more than understandable to be upset by this situation. Protest. Call attention to this injustice. Do that. It’s the American way. However, we are a civilized society. We should not punish those who are innocent and have nothing to do with the situation we are grieved about.
For example, the Boston Tea Party was British tea that was dumped. It was against a nation that was oppressing an entire country of individuals. Target, Wendy’s, and AutoZone aren’t the ones who committed an act of injustice, now are they? They are the ones being smashed, plundered, and burned to the ground.
There is a better way, folks.
