Donald Trump accuses social media of Conservatives discrimination

Share

"Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices", tweeted.

After Facebook rejected a highly inspirational ad for a Republican congressional candidate that included images depicting her parents' persecution under the Khmer Rouge communist regime in Cambodia, Twitter has followed up with its own ban.

In a subsequent tweet, the president wrote, "Censorship is a very risky thing & absolutely impossible to police". This shows social media is striving to take down hateful or bashing content from its sites.

Genter is 42 weeks pregnant with their first child and she says she was going to the hospital for an induction. She has recently returned to her role as Prime Minister, following six weeks of maternity leave.

One of the videos removed for "hate speech" was one titled "Make Men Masculine Again" in which a female commentator makes the case that men being manly is not the awful disease liberals would have people believe. Either way, the president wasn't happy about it. He also made his oft-repeated reference to news organizations - in this case, CNN and MSNBC - as "fake news", and suggested that there should be no controls on social media.

Judging by the timing of these tweets, its possible Trump is defending Alex Jones after the Infowars chief conspiracy theorist was banned across social media lately for hate speech and user policy violations.

Finally - Trump likes the carrot but he's not afraid of the stick - are two warnings that this censorship is not going to be tolerated any longer: "we won't let that happen" and "that can not be allowed to happen". "Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!" he tweeted. "I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don't watch at all", he stated. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey meanwhile dismissed the idea that the platform discriminates against particular political viewpoints.

He added that he believes Twitter may shut him down completely because he violated its rules by posting a "video I shot last night saying [President Donald] Trump should do something about the censorship of the internet".

"It's always an apology", she said, adding social media censorship is a "very real problem".
