Big Tech Harms Homeland Security – Twitter Blocks Border Patrol Chief

Help President Trump Stop Joe Biden [ACT NOW]

ANALYSIS – When could Americans ever imagine that a social media tech firm would block the account of the nation’s Border Patrol Chief over official tweets touting the achievements of its law enforcement agency in protecting Americans? Well, after blocking the President of the United States over political speech, anything is possible.

But imagine no further, America’s Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan had his Twitter account locked by anonymous, unelected tech weenies at Twitter. The crime? Allegedly violating the platform’s rules governing “hateful conduct” after the commissioner attempted to tweet about the security benefits created by the border wall.

Screenshots of the “criminal” tweet were provided to The Federalist.

Regarding his Tweet about the wall that provoked the ban, Morgan told The Federalist, “every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, and pedophiles from entering our country. It’s just a fact.”

Twitter used this “hateful conduct” policy to justify its blocking of Morgan’s account:

You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease,

However, it is clear the Border Chief did no such thing, and Twitter is now even more openly in the Leftist political speech censorship game.

As The Federalist noted:

Those who illegally enter the United States are of many different ethnicities and foreign nationalities, including people who travel from other continents to South America to take advantage of southern border human smuggling routes.

After loud protests, Twitter reversed its block on Morgan. But to make the initial censorship more egregious, Twitter still refuses to block “hateful conduct” posts from Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei calling for the destruction of Israel.

See tweets of his posts here.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey shamelessly claimed at the recent Senate hearing that the Iranian leader’s posts didn’t violate company guideline, saying:

We did not find those to violate our terms of service because we considered them ‘saber rattling,’ which is part of the speech of world leaders in concert with other countries.

Calling for the destruction of an entire country is ok, meanwhile, President Trump, The Federalist notes, has been censored “for merely threatening to send in the National Guard to quell the violent riots sweeping the country in May.” Twitter ridiculously called Trump’s Tweets “glorifying violence.”

So, now we have Big Tech hampering Homeland Security efforts to inform the American people of the benefits of its policies to protect them from criminals, drug smugglers, and terrorists.

It is time to stop the insanity. As Senator Ted Cruz told Dorsey at the hearing – “Who the hell elected you?” It is time to reign in Big Tech.

Thous of you who use and subscribe to any social media account are supporting social medias control over you and our culture. It is bad enough that we have socialist communist elitist subverting our government and culture; we pay these enities for the privilige of controling us. Why not just commit suiside and be done with life.

I have never had Facebook or Twitter and never will. I wouldn’t allow someone to decide what I can and can’t say. If all the people who complain about them would just delete their accounts you would get their attention, they’re already telling you they don’t care what you think. I figure if I haven’t talked to you in 20 years there’s probably a good reason for it.

It is past time users of Twitter an Facebook go to other sites like Parler and GAB. Investors who have investments in Twitter and Facebook need to sell. Drive their stocks down. Make those arrogant B******s paupers.
