Free Donald Trump!

Donald Trump

This week the U.S. House of Representatives votes to convene a Special Commission to Investigate the January 6, 2021 Capitol Riots. Following the events of January 6, 2021 several social media platforms banned Donald Trump’s accounts on or around January 8, 2021. This was a response to Trump’s perceived incitement of violence. These bans were upheld by several corporate oversight committees in May 2021.

While Trump has been suspended, left-wing celebrities and politicians have been left unhindered by the same corporations that banned Donald Trump. Recently, LeBron James faced a firestorm of criticism over an incendiary tweet targeting an Ohio police officer who fatally shot a Black teenager, with conservative pundits accusing the athlete of racism and irresponsible behavior. The policeman shot dead 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant as she lunged with a knife at another girl in James’s home state of Ohio – prompting the Lakers star to post a picture of the officer on Twitter with the words “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” One day earlier, James had tweeted “ACCOUNTABILITY” after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of two counts of murder and one count of manslaughter in the killing of George Floyd. James deleted the Ma’Khia Bryant related tweet because he said it was being misconstrued to cause more hate.

Before the Derek Chauvin jury reached a verdict, U.S. Representative Maxine Waters said that protestors have got to not only stay in the street, but have to fight for justice. She said that if Chauvin is not found guilty, that protestors have got to get more active and more confrontational and have to make sure that they know that protestors mean business. Maxine Waters crossed state lines and made these comments to protestors in Minnesota. Water deliberately crossed state lines and was inciting a riot.

This week, Mayor Lori Lightfoot (Democrat – Chicago) was discovered to be deliberately discriminating against journalists who were not black or brown. Lightfoot will not do interviews with white reporters.

Unlike Donald Trump, LeBron James, Lori Lightfoot, and Maxine Waters have not been suspended from their social media accounts.

There was a 2-year Mueller investigation that resulted in “No Obstruction, No Collusion”. That investigation cost tax payers millions of dollars. Now we have a January 6, 2021 Commission that is going to cost the taxpayers millions of dollars. Trump was impeached and acquitted two times. That cost the taxpayers millions of dollars. There was an announcement this week that the New York Prosecutor investigation into Donald Trump’s finances has turned into a criminal investigation. Just the report alone, insinuates guilt without having a verdict; but when Donald Trump is vilified when he describes the Congressional districts of his political opponents as being rat infested and crime ridden.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended banning Trump, but also said it “sets a precedent I feel is dangerous. German Chancellor Angela Merkel viewed the permanent suspension as “problematic” due to her view that restrictions on the “right to freedom of opinion” should be decided by governments rather than private companies. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador blasted the decision to ban Trump, saying that he favored prohibiting private companies from banning government officials

and had directed officials to explore the possibility of creating a Mexican state-run social network; López Obrador compared such action by websites to the “Spanish Inquisition” while Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that Poland’s conservative government planned to introduce a bill to limit how social media companies could moderate content.

The left can openly and deliberately incite violence and publicly discriminate repeatedly without so much as a warning from social media companies. Left wing inciters are walking around free. If they can walk around freely, then Donald Trump must be freed!
