In January, social media companies overreacted to the Capitol protests that took place as Americans stood in opposition to a stolen and likely fraudulent election. President Trump tried to calm the crowds, but patriots who care about election integrity peacefully trespassed on Capitol grounds. One unarmed woman, a veteran, lost her life as she was gunned down by Capitol police. Social media companies like Facebook and Twitter decided that Trump was at fault and banned him.
President Trump is, of course, blameless. He urged protesters to calm down and go home, yet was demonized by the leftist media and Democrats. Social media companies responded by banning President Trump’s accounts, going to far as to also ban conservatives who published videos of the President or even quoted him. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and others all decided that their platforms were to be Trump (and truth)-free zones.
While Democrats would have you believe that these companies are following the will of Americans, when you remove them from the equation, Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of silencing President Trump. An Internet Accountability Project poll found that an astounding 97 percent of Independents and Republicans say Facebook and Instagram should not have banned the President.
Nearly 96 percent believe that President Trump’s accounts should be reinstated.
Democrats and the media want you to believe that President Trump is a horrible terrorist leader and conservatives are his army. But Americans who aren’t brainwashed don’t believe it. Social media companies must be pressured to reinstate not just President Trump’s account, but all conservatives who have been unfairly silenced to appease leftists. Free speech means nothing if private companies can censor it.
