Social Media Companies Discriminating' Against Republicans

Social Media Companies Discriminating' Against Republicans

They are "totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices" especially those who "speak loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration".

Facebook said the pages were taken down for "glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies".

The president called censorship "a very risky thing, absolutely impossible to police", adding that "if you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN MSNBC, yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed".

However, social media organisations claim they aren't trying to hinder free speech, just restrict offensive content.

One of the videos removed for "hate speech" was one titled "Make Men Masculine Again" in which a female commentator makes the case that men being manly is not the bad disease liberals would have people believe.

Does anyone really believe that Facbook's censorship of PragerU was accidental?

So far, the Atlantic hurricane season has been relatively inactive in terms of major storms and hurricanes. According to AccuWeather: An abundance of high wind shear continues to stifle tropical development.

"If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed", the president tweeted.

Trump tweeted that "too many voices are being destroyed, some good and some bad, and that can not be allowed to happen". I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don't watch at all.

Owens said on "Fox & Friends" that she finds it comical that social media bans seems to only be happening with conservative voices.

According to Politico, slated to appear are executives from Facebook and Google as well as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. He wants the sites to welcome all kinds of content (good and bad) and let people decide on their own.

But in a video posted Wednesday to the Twitter account for Infowars, Jones said the company suspended him and may shut him down completely because he violated its rules by posting a "video I shot last night saying Trump should do something about the censorship of the internet".

This is not the first time in which the social media platforms' censorship on specific users come to lights, it has been going for weeks now after it was highlighted by prominent conservatives.
