But they didn’t lock any of his accounts for pictures of his followers molesting and threatening a US Congresswoman or showing his opponent’s name on a headstone.

Twitter locks Mitch McConnell campaign account for posting video of protesters at his home

Twitter locked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign account after it posted a video of activists making threats against the Kentucky Republican at his home.

Twitter locked the account Wednesday, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. The social media giant has told the campaign that the account will remain locked until the video of protesters is deleted.

Twitter is always being accused by the right of having a leftist bias, so I guess that’s why they allow rampant hate speech from Trump & Co.

Yes, I know who it is, and almost did not click on the link, but this actually makes sense. However, it also needs to be applied consistently and often and extended to the personal accounts of police officers and chiefs who commit or allow murder (not the departments as those are taxpayer funded and we would only be suing ourselves).

Personally, I would like to see it also applied to politicians whose salaries are paid by taxpayers but who do not fight for what their employers hired them to do. In the real world, contractors CAN be sued for non-performance.

can’t tell if the “violent” protesters were hired to do that

non violence requires discipline and most protests do not have authority figures

and since the goal of fascists is to increase all kinds of violence, and to use that to repress dissent as well to support their goons, this is a tricky issue

true i always suspect sabotage. have to admit, though, there is way too much trash talk of violence from lefties on Twitter, at least, I am a jewel (haha—voice 2 text for imho!)

Check this out. You know how this week it’s all been (in the financial world) China, China, China?

Here’s Bernie back in 2000:

And what was Biden up to at the time? (you might wonder)

” Nor do I see the collapse of the American manufacturing economy, as China, a nation with the impact on the world economy about the size of the Netherlands’, suddenly becomes our major economic competitor. ” – Joe Biden, September 2000

“This growing prosperity for the Chinese people, in turn, has put China on a path toward ever greater political and economic freedom.” – Joe Biden arguing for normal trade relations with China in Sept 2000

What political freedom has occurred since?

Do a ctrl-f find for Biden’s name at that link-you’ll find more doozies from Biden.
