Violence, President Trump, and Twitter

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

President Trump has been flagged by Twitter for “glorifying” violence in a tweet. He was commenting on the rioting in Minneapolis, which the left-wing media calls a “protest,” but looks a lot more like a city engulfed in flames.

The city has been in turmoil since George Floyd died under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer. The officer ignored Floyd’s pleading that he couldn’t breathe for eight minutes, and Floyd died. The video of the incident reveals that Floyd did not resist arrest. The police officers were fired and protestors in the city are calling for the prosecution of the officers for the murder of George Floyd. It seems that prosecution of the officers would be warranted.

Protestors are demanding justice for George Floyd, flooding the 3rd precinct in Minneapolis, but justifiable protests have turned into senseless rioting in Minneapolis with 3 nights of smashing, burning, and looting in the city. President Trump sent the National Guard to Minneapolis to stop the rioting that is destroying a “great American city” as President Trump says.

Meanwhile, the arresting officer, Derek Chauvin, is being charged with 3rd-degree murder and manslaughter and is in custody. The other officers are still being investigated, and the investigators say they are working as fast as they can.

Thugs

President Trump tweeted about the riots, describing the rioters as “thugs” and said, “when the looting starts the shooting starts,” meaning, as he explained in a press briefing, that looting leads to shooting during riots.  Twitter’s censors were triggered and found the president’s tweet to be in violation of their “rules,” characterizing the tweet as “glorifying” violence.

Now, apart from the discussion of whether the president’s tweet actually  “glorified” violence, if  Twitter finds the president’s tweet to be glorifying violence, surely they would find a tweet from famous leftist documentarian equally offensive to their “rules. But no…

Michael Moore

On the left side of the Twitterverse, Michael Moore was actually glorifying the violence of the rioters in Minneapolis saying they are good for burning down the evil police building. His tweet practically enshrines the violence of the destruction of public property and provides argumentation and justification to any other potential rioters that wish to “protest” Floyd’s death in the same violent and destructive manner.

Ironically, or because Twitter is of the same opinion, Twitter did not attach any warnings or flags to Moore’s tweet for promoting and glorifying the violence of the rioters and the burning of a public building.

Now that does seem to be a double standard.
