It just doesn’t make sense…
Why would a company that was founded in the United States, that enjoys all the freedoms afforded to them from living in those United States, actively try to destroy the liberties of other US citizens?
That’s the question many of us have been asking about Twitter recently.
The only possible and logical reason is that they hate the country that’s made them one of the biggest and wealthiest companies on the planet.
Regardless of whether or not you agree with somebody’s politics, you should uphold the ideals of that country when making your policies and rules.
The BEST ideal they could hold up is the freedom of speech afforded to us by God and guaranteed by the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution.
However, the Twitter powers that be reveal their true nature with their treatment of conservatives.
When it comes to the Right, we’re fact-checked and flagged at a much higher rate than Liberals, not because what we say isn’t true, but because what we say goes against Twitter’s own political bias.
And nowhere is this more evident than with their treatment of the president. Lately, they’ve taken to fact-checking him with reckless abandon.
Fact-Check The President – But Not Terrorist Leadership
However, the sources they’re using for those “facts” ALL happen to come from Left-leaning news sites and opinion-based articles rather than actual facts.
Twitter and other social media sites with similar practices use the Left’s OWN narrative as the “truth” instead of the ACTUAL truth.
Many conservatives are finding this out if they tried to post any videos or discussions about the Frontline Doctors who spoke in Washington this week.
It was flagged ALL over social media for being “false” – even though these were ACTUAL doctors who have cured HUNDREDS of patients in their practices.
But that’s not even the worst affront by Twitter.
No, their biggest offense is that these standards aren’t consistent. While they fact check and flag the president with impunity, they allow Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei to openly talk about destroying the Jews of Israel without giving it a second glance.
Twitter was forced to defend their actions at Israel’s Knesset hearing recently, explaining why they’ve been flagging Donald Trump’s tweets while allowing those from the Iranian Supreme Leader calling for Israel’s destruction.
Twitter says the Ayatollah’s tweets “do not violate the company’s rules against hate speech.”
You can’t make this up, folks.
Twitter PROVES They Hate America
In her response, Twitter’s regional policy head Ylwa Pettersson said the Ayatollah’s tweet that called for ACTUAL genocide against Israel were merely “foreign policy saber-rattling.”
The fact that he’s looking to EXTERMINATE Jews – just like the Nazis did – should qualify as hate speech in ANY sense of the term.
“We have an approach toward leaders that says that direct interactions with fellow public figures, comments on political issues of the day, or foreign policy saber-rattling on military-economic issues are generally not in violation of our rules.”
If that were the case, you have to wonder why they’re so eager to flag Trump’s tweets.
So, the question was asked. MK Michal Cotler-Wunsch, who initiated the hearing, interjected: “I just want to fine-tune the question: Calling for genocide on Twitter is okay, but commenting on the political situation in certain countries is not okay?”
To which Pettersson replied, “If a world leader violates our rules but there is a clear interest in keeping that up on the service we may place it behind a notice that provides some more context about the violation and allows people to click through if they wish to see that type of content.”
So, we’ll let it be seen, but we won’t allow people to interact with it…
Which was what they did when Trump said, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” tweet. They disabled the “like” button but didn’t remove the post itself.
Pettersson concluded, “So the citizens can see what their political figures are commenting [on] and hold them accountable for it online.”
Unless you’re an Iranian warlord…
Then you can like it, share it, and comment on it all you like.
A bunch of hypocrites…
And don’t deserve to have their freedoms defended.
Twitter should move their headquarters to Iran – see how it works out for them over there.
