With just days left in his presidency, President Trump is said to be working on social media censorship although I don’t know what he can accomplish that Joe Biden can’t bury once he takes office. But, I can understand why he feels like he has to try. They had way too much influence in the 2020 election. Besides hiding conservative content, they hid information on Joe and Hunter Biden.
President Donald Trump’s Twitter and Facebook accounts were suspended and Pinterest and Shopify pledged to purge all of Trump’s accounts.
In fact, the Masters of the Universe are going after everything conservative. And unless I miss my guess, this is just the beginning because they know the Democratic party will not let them down.
Trump is not the only one expressing doubts about the legality of the purges. The left-leaning ACLU is criticizing the move by social media and even countries that don’t paticularly like Trump are criticizing Twitter for its permanent ban of the sitting President.
This includes Great Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and North Korea.
There is bound to be more feedback on the bans by social media.
“For months, President Trump has been using social media platforms to seed doubt about the results of the election and to undermine the will of voters,” ACLU senior legislative counsel Kate Ruane said in a statement.
“We understand the desire to permanently suspend him now, but it should concern everyone when companies like Facebook and Twitter wield the unchecked power to remove people from platforms that have become indispensable for the speech of billions – especially when political realities make those decisions easier.”
For President Trump, however, it is unlikely that an administration refocus will direct attention away from his troubles. Democrats are expected to introduce new articles of impeachment on Monday — several individual Democrats, it seems, are competing to be the first to offer their own draft articles.
And a “source close” to Vice President Mike Pence told media Saturday that Pence has “not ruled out” triggering the 25th Amendment, though it remains “highly unlikely” that Pence will make the move, given that it could take up to two weeks to complete the process and Trump will be out of office on January 20th.
The final battle will be led by We the People as we look for alternative to the Goebbels inspired social media.
