Mitch McConnell Suspended From Twitter

Twitter locked accounts belonging to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s and several prominent conservatives Monday, after they posted videos of left-wing protesters gathered outside McConnell’s Kentucky home — with one demonstrator calling for someone to stab McConnell “in the heart” and for McConnell to break his “raggedy” neck.
The episode prompted the McConnell campaign, known as “Team Mitch,” to slam Twitter for political bias, saying the social media platform had effectively blamed the victim.
Meanwhile, observers noted, Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro remains active on Twitter, even after he posted the names of San Antonio residents who donated to Trump.
“This morning, Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell,” McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden said in a statement. “This is the problem with the speech police in America today.”
McConnell, 77, has been resting at home since tripping on his patio fracturing his shoulder on Sunday — and the Team Mitch account posted images showing him at his residence.
In the wake of this weekend’s deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, the hashtag “Massacre Mitch” trended on Twitter — and some activists took their case to McConnell’s residence.
To: EinNYCI don’t do Twitter, but it seems there could be a conservative-run alternative to Twitter. Why hasn’t some conservative group been working on this? Why is Twitter being allowed to control and humiliate conservative members?
Why isn’t there one total conservative TV station owned or funded by rich conservatives?
To: Mr. JeevesFor now. I guarantee they are going to ban him for his “racism” before the campaign gets going next year.
When it comes to Trump, they are in a pickle. If they deplatform him, his campaign will start an alternative to Twitter and every last one of his millions of followers will auto-deplatform and join the new-start.
Trump University? (I hear that one’s available)
Doing that would be the beginning of the end of monopoly social media. Hopefully, they’re stupid enough to do it.
