Fwd: The two trump tweets that caused Trump's ban

From: Larry Trout

Twitter's explanation for permanently suspending Trump from its platform is laughable. In a blog post, the company argued that two tweets from the president occasioned the move: 

From January 8, 2021:

"The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!

A short while later:

"To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th."


We also know that Twitter's attack on Trump is not about preventing violence because the firm's partisan bias showed up way before the storming of the Capitol. It was evident last summer, when the social media giant prevented the dissemination of credible reporting from the New York Post about Hunter Biden's shady business deals in Ukraine and China.

Imagine: A supposedly neutral platform forbids circulation of revelations that a presidential candidate likely knew about and perhaps was involved in his son's attempts to trade on his father's former position in the White House.  

Despite denials from the same journalists who submerged the country in Russia-gate hysteria for over two years, the Hunter Biden story was real. It was backed up by communications from Hunter Biden himself and by first-hand accounts from people involved. Notably, it was never denied by either Joe or Hunter Biden.

Twitter's bias against conservatives is evident, as well, from the smooth glide of company officials onto President-elect Joe Biden's transition team and now his administration. Twitter's public policy director, Carlos Monje, who hosted a fundraiser for Biden, joined in September. More recently, former Twitter employee Emily Horne signed up to lead communications for Biden's National Security Council. She joins dozens of other Silicon Valley refugees, all eager to help craft Biden's left-leaning agenda.

Let's not forget the ultimate fingerprints of bias: campaign donations. According to Open Secrets, Twitter employees donated nearly $1 million to Biden's campaign and to other Democrats; not one dollar flowed to Trump or any other Republican.
