BREAKING: They Just Tried to Silence Trump!

By

There’s nothing many liberals would like to do more than suspend their supposed commitment to democratic values and silence President Trump, and all conservatives for that matter.

Because, you see, in spite of their claim to be the party of tolerance, Democrats and other liberals, in fact, cannot tolerate views and policies that run contrary to their own.

Generally speaking, there’s little liberals can do about this.

Yes, they control the mainstream media, and therefore their narrative gets a lot more air time. But conservatives, especially Trump, are still free to speak out.

Well, on Thursday, one liberal tried to take even that away from President Trump by removing him from his favorite podium – Twitter!

Trump’s official personal Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, was temporarily deactivated.

For about 11 minutes, any of Trump’s nearly 42 million followers saw the following screen when trying to access his tweets:

This isn’t a minor thing considering that Trump uses Twitter to communicate directly with the American people, including announcing new policy.

In that way, one could almost label it obstruction of government.

This devious act was reportedly the work of a single Twitter employee on their last day on the job.

A statement from Twitter read:

“Through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee’s last day. We are conducting a full internal review.”

Something doesn’t smell quite right here.

Why would a customer support employee have the kind of access needed to deactivate an account, especially one of the biggest accounts on the social network?

If so many Twitter employees have such power, then we need to start putting pressure on the company before more conservatives are silenced on a whim.
