Unique: 120 Outstanding Twitter Leftists Name for President Trump to Be Banned

The left is utterly desperate that Twitter is banning President Donald Trump.

At least 120 leftists on Twitter have called for Trump to be removed from the platform for good after the January 6 riots in the US Capitol Building. The list includes numbers in media, big tech, and left wing nonprofits.

Washington Post columnist and MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin tweeted, “We just had a violent coup in the capital. WTF is wrong with @Twitter – why isn’t Trump banned? “Rubin’s Twitter bio now reads:” NeverTrump, a pro-democracy writer at @WashingtonPost. “

Many more joined the anti-Trump rhetoric. David Levvitt, who writes for CBS, Yahoo and several other publications, tweeted, “Twitter Safety does more for our country than Capitol Security, but they still haven’t done enough. DELETE HIS ACCOUNT[.]”

Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation (GLAAD), argued: “For the security of our country and democracy, this @ Facebook @ Instagram ban must be permanent. As a global LGBTQ organization for media representation, GLAAD @jack @Twitter calls on President Trump to be permanently banned before he puts more people in danger. “

Former Reddit CEO Ellen K. Pao couldn’t resist joining the call. “This is on Twitter and @jack. In November @laura and I told them to do the right thing. You didn’t do it. And here we are, “she said, following on from a letter she wrote in November 2020 asking Twitter to disappoint Trump. Then she tweeted herself and added, “Just forbid it. Don’t broadcast his dangerous video during a coup where he says he loves the insurgents and lies about the election results. Do the right thing[.]”

Still others, including Molly Jong-Fast, editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast, Keith Boykin, a CNN commentator, and Nilay Patel, editor-in-chief of The Verge, called on Twitter to permanently ban Trump.

This contradicts clearly defined Twitter guidelines. In a 2019 blog post, Twitter claimed, “We rate reported tweets from world market leaders against Twitter’s rules, which are designed to ensure that people can freely and safely participate in public conversations. The blog post goes on to say: “[I]fa A tweet from a global market leader may violate Twitter rules, but it is clearly in the public interest to keep the tweet on duty. We can place it behind a notice that gives the context of the violation and allows users to click through if they wish to see the content. “In other cases where a world leader is involved, we will be mistaken in leaving the content open when there is a clear public interest in it.”

Twitter leftists have no qualms about calling for Trump’s censorship, but remained silent when Iranian Supreme Leader Imam Sayyid Ali Khamenei made unfavorable statements against Israel and the Jewish people. Twitter didn’t even label the Iranian leader’s comments when he tweeted: “The elimination of the Zionist regime does not mean the massacre of the Jewish population. The Palestinians should hold a referendum. Any political system they vote for should rule all of Palestine. The only means until the Zionist regime is overthrown is firm, armed resistance. ”

Khamenei also said, “The Zionist regime is a deadly, cancerous growth and a disadvantage for this region. It will undoubtedly be uprooted and destroyed. Then shame will fall on those who put their institutions at the service of normalizing relations with this regime. ”

Facebook has stated that it will continue its suspension of Trump indefinitely, at least until the end of his term in office. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, suggested in a post that Trump “wants to use his remaining term in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transfer of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.”

Brent Bozell, president of the media research center, condemned the violence in Washington, DC. “You can never take it when the police are attacked. They can’t stand our national capital being so hurt. I think it’s absolutely wrong, ”he said in an interview with Liz McDonald on Fox News. Regardless of the violence that has taken place, restricting a seated US president’s speech should certainly not be the solution.
