Twitter takes action against Congressman for allegedly glorifying violence

Twitter takes action against Congressman for allegedly glorifying violence

Twitter placed a tweet from a close political ally of the president behind a warning, citing its policy prohibiting content that promotes violence. The tweet, from Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, suggested the U.S. government ’hunt down’ anti-fascist activists like it would international terrorists. The decision comes days after the social media platform did the same thing to the President.

At least this one insured violence, but I gotta wonder why censor this? I mean I see so many big name left wing people encouraging violent riots and a terrorist organization yet no censorship there.

Twitter doubling down on its censorship of the US government; it is going to lose badly.

Not only does it promote violence, it is explicitly calling for the killing, without due process, of people in the US.

The term hunt down refers to a man hunt. Not going to the streets and finding members of a certain group and killing them... like ANTIFA is doing. Twitter keeps messing stuff up, I wonder if any ANTIFA accounts are still active?

It would be so easy. First, stop by CNN, MSNBC, etc and arrest everyone. Next step Guantanamo.

I can agree and love to see Twitter start acting more like a publisher than an exempted overglorifoverglorified toy for politicians of all ranges. They should not trample on first amendment rights but must also lock down on people like Donald Trump and other violent extremists.

For fuck's sake. A fucking college professor was instructing people on how to tear down the fucking WASHINGTON MONUMENT. It had thousands of likes and RT and Twitter did jack shit. Antifa is a terrorist organization and they should be treated as such.

I agree. They should hunt them down as terrorists because that's what they are.

Literally supporting a terrorist organization while censoring American statesmen. At what point can Twitter be held to the same standards as the terrorist organization they openly choose to support?

But Twitter allows all violent terrorists to schedule meets on twitter. BLM is pure violence, Antifa pure violence, and they should be treated as terrorists. They are the exact definition of what a terrorist is plain and simple

Twitter protects anarcho-communists.

The summary of this story is missing quotes around the words "anti-fascist." And "hunt down" colloquially means to track and discover. The US and it's allies are pretty good at hunting down terrorists. We've arrested (without killing) tons of them.

The root of the problem is racism. Republicans are now saying that the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat. They are no different than The Nazi Party of Hitler.

The peaceful protestors are not committing the crimes and must be protected against the antifa types who will accept nothing less than revolution at the expense of others rights, and are genuine domestic enemies of the US constitution

If you're anti-anti-fascist... doesn't that make you a fascist?

Hey First and Second Amendment people, where are you? This is the "overthrowing government tyranny" you've been jacking off to.

Half of you are glaringly willingly ignorant. Hunt has more than one meaning. To hunt people down in this context doesn't imply violence. You are purposely taking him out of context to fit your agenda. To act like you really believe he meant to imply killing them is purely disingenuous.
