Twitter Shuts Down Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Account for Showing Death Threats Liberals Sent Him


So, now the liberals running Twitter won’t even let Republicans alert the public to the death threats that liberals send them, huh?

Twitter shut down a conservative journalist’s account when he shared a story about the death threats that Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was getting.

But, even worse, Twitter then went and shut down Mitch McConnell’s re-election Twitter account, too, because they talked about the death threats.

So, get this straight, America. If a liberal threatens to kill you, Twitter will take bold action and… shut you down and not the violence threatening liberals.

The indispensable Ryan Saavedra had gone to his Twitter account on Monday to tweet out the video that revealed a liberal calling for someone to stab Mitch McConnell to death.

But not long after, Daily Wire reporter had his account locked by twitter and he was told to remove the tweet about the threat against McConnell’s life.

Saavedra refused to take down the tweet. After all, it is REAL news that a sitting U.S. Senator — and the Senate Leader, at that — had his life threatened by a member of the opposing party.

Naturally, Twitter suspended Saavedra:

But that wasn’t all Twitter did. The social media giant then went and suspended a sitting U.S. Senator’s account, for good measure!

All because Twitter wants to shield the left from embarrassment and to keep the hate and violence of the left from seeing the light of transparency.

Per Fox News:

Twitter locked accounts belonging to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s re-election campaign and several prominent conservatives Monday, after they posted videos of left-wing protesters gathered outside McConnell’s Kentucky home — with one demonstrator calling for someone to stab McConnell “in the heart” and for McConnell to break his “raggedy” neck.

The episode prompted the McConnell campaign, known as “Team Mitch,” to slam Twitter for political bias, saying the social media platform had effectively blamed the victim. Meanwhile, observers noted, Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro remains active on Twitter, even after he posted the names of San Antonio residents who donated to Trump.

Tem Mitch released a short statement reading: “This morning, Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell,” McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden said in a statement. “This is the problem with the speech police in America today.”

“The Lexington-Herald can attack Mitch with cartoon tombstones of his opponents,” the statement continued. “But we can’t mock it. Twitter will allow the words ‘Massacre Mitch’ to trend nationally on their platform. But locks our account for posting actual threats against us. We appealed and Twitter stood by their decision, saying our account will remain locked until we delete the video.”
