(Tea Party 247) – Twitter isn’t even trying to be subtle in their censoring of conservatives anymore. It has been pretty obvious for a while now that those on the right are just not welcome to freely speak on Twitter. Conservatives get banned from the social media platform for simply expressing their views while lunatic leftists are free to spew endless tweets of vile and derogatory diatribe and threats and never even receive so much as a warning. The blatant double standard is clear.
The Big Tech censorship of conservatives is alarming but perhaps even more disturbing is the way Twitter appears to be running defense on behalf of Islamic terrorists.
Fox News host Pete Hegseth was recently suspended from Twitter for posting a screenshot of the manifesto written by the Pensacola naval base shooter, who just so happened to be an Islamic terrorist. The shooter’s own manifesto showed his terroristic motivations for killing three Americans but apparently, it’s a punishable offense to share that with the American people on Twitter.
In the post made by Hegseth he wrote, “The coward posted it just hours before his terrorist attack. This is Islamist terror. No reason to ever mince words. Saudi Arabia must be held to account.”
Every single American should be outraged by this attack just as Hegseth is, yet the folks at Twitter are more concerned with protecting the interests of Muslims, and their hate for America, than they are with ensuring all Americans see the truth about Islamist terrorism.
According to Summit News, Hegseth discovered he was locked out of his account after he posted the screenshot and was informed he could regain access if he deleted the tweet, which he is rightfully refusing to do. It’s complete lunacy that an American reporter has been banned from one of the biggest information sharing platforms in the world for simply sharing the manifesto of a terrorist. The left has the nerve to accuse President Trump of trying to bully and censor the media, what hypocrites!
“I simply posted the words of the terrorist who killed three Americans in a terrorist attack, yet I’m violating the Twitter policy on terrorism and therefore I am banned,” Hegseth explained to Tucker Carlson. It’s completely mind-blowing. It isn’t as if Hegseth was surmising as the motives of the killer, he was posting words written by the terrorist himself.
Hegseth went on to say, he doesn’t normally “play the veteran card” but he has served in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Guantanamo Bay and this gives him a more well-informed perspective on the motivations of Islamic terrorists.
Hegseth addressed the fact that it is incredibly dangerous if we don’t have the right to speak freely on social media platforms saying, “we’re gonna get the false narrative of the PC folks from Silicone Valley every single day of the week. And they banned me, and if they’ll ban me, they’ll ban anybody.”
Carlson pointed out that there are literally thousands of people being banned from Twitter who don’t get access to a platform such as Fox News. Hegseth acknowledged this point, “It’s not the people who have a profile, it’s the thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of Americans who share stuff about radical Islam, which is taboo, who are blocked every single day.”
“Silicon Valley is in bed with defending, under the guise of defending against Islamophobia, anyone who exposes the things that radical Islam is doing. That’s what I ran up against here,” he concluded.
It’s particularly frustrating that Twitter has taken up the position of Islamic defender when there are evidently no restrictions on the disparaging things people are allowed to say about Christianity on their site.
“There’s literally no limit to the things you can say about Christianity or Christians and remain on the platform,” Hegseth noted.
Twitter would rather have Hegseth appear to be an intolerant, hateful, Islamophobic conservative radical than have the American people know the TRUTH about Islamic terrorism and just how much they hate us and want to see us dead.
