I’ve been warning that the unprecedented lockdowns, Gov’t intrusion & censorship (even about proven medical therapies) Americans were tolerating in the name of covid would result in us coming out of this pandemic more like Communist China than America. I was right. #TrumpBanned

President Donald Trump has finally had his Twitter account banned permanently, which had more than 80 million followers.
He got his posting privileges suspended from Facebook yesterday. The account itself may not be too far behind.
The purge has begun. Cancel culture is going to be worse than ever.
You either bend the knee, and renounce President Trump — or your days on social media or in official Washington, D.C. could be numbered.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) just had a book contract cancelled.
He and his colleague Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are being cut off by the GOP establishment and Republican donors, simply for fighting for election integrity in a process prescribed under law by Congress more than a century ago.
Parler, the social media alternative to Twitter, has been banned from the Google Play store barring it from Android devices and just got threatened by Apple it will be removed from their App Store, which would make the app inaccessible on Apple devices, unless it implements a censorship policy. They’ve been given 24 hours.
And there are a number of other accounts and cancellations occurring. It is a wholesale assault on the entire Republican Party. Not just Trump supporters.
Make no mistake. This is a bid for one-party rule.
In the fallout of the tragic storming of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., where police were unjustly attacked, doors broken down, windows smashed, and offices robbed — resulting in the death of five individuals including a Capitol Hill police officer — we have entered a brave new world.
If you are alarmed, you should be. And it’s nothing you did. The overwhelming majority of you have never engaged in political violence once in your entire lives.
President Trump at his speech on Jan. 6 at the Save America Rally on the National Mall called for protesters to be peaceful: “We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
After the violence began, Trump on Twitter urged his followers to stop immediately: “I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!”
I gave you the link to that one but it won’t resolve. They took that tweet down, too.
I cannot guarantee for how much longer you will see our content posted on major social media platforms.
It’s not an assault on the Republican party; it’s an assault on the American people.
So, is there any question remaining as Twitter being a non-partisan benign platform? Of course, since Republicans went along with the Democrats in protecting them, the time to restrict this partner of the left from censoring whatever they feel endangers their power.
