Skip to comments.Mitch McConnell Suspended From Twitter
Posted on 08/07/2019 8:35:01 PM PDT by Helicondelta
Twitter locked accounts belonging to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's 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.
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."
McConnell, 77, has been resting at home since tripping on his patio fracturing his shoulder on Sunday -- and the Team Mitch account posted images showing him at his residence.
In the wake of this weekend's deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, the hashtag "Massacre Mitch" trended on Twitter -- and some activists took their case to McConnell's residence.

What we need is a Fritter!
What the hell are you GOP eunuchs waiting for? Social media is a utility and its major players are monopolistic. Regulate it.
when will politicians break up these trusts and monopolies
That's a fact and what needs to be done but they'll never get it through the House until after the 2020 election if then as long as democrats are the majority in the House.
What we need is a Fritter!
Nope, we need to bring Twitter to heel. The leftist Globalists would like nothing better than to have us banned from the market square and become unseen.
They're NOT your friends, even if you do go to the same cocktail parties.
Twitter is opt-in. The only reasonable thing I see happening is the revocation of patents that are currently securing market share and not serving the public at large.
I don’t do Twitter, but it seems there could be a conservative-run alternative to Twitter. Why hasn’t some conservative group been working on this? Why is Twitter being allowed to control and humiliate conservative members?
Why is Mitch a cuckold in this situation?
Not in this case, but in general. That’s my nickname for him.
Why isn't there one total conservative TV station owned or funded by rich conservatives?
Twitter needs to be deplatformed - IMMEDIATELY.
Force Cloudflare to no longer serve them.
Have their DNS regsitrars refuse to host them.
Have their hosting services blocked at the backbones.
We must push back against this.
Sure, people are trying to start them up.
You know what they face? Collusion from Big Tech:
1. Apps that directly access the website get banned from the App Stores;
2. Even general purpose browsers - ones for protocols NOT based on HTTP - get banned from stores if they DO NOT ACTIVELY BLOCK these right-wing alternative domains;
3. Web hosting companies reject them, or throw them off after initially accepting them because the host company gets threatened;
4. Payment processing companies refuse to do business with them;
5. They get vilified in the press because bad people post dumb things - and then if illegal, get banned afterwards...
...meanwhile bad people post dumb things on the mainstream platforms, and if liberal, never get banned;
Check out the history of Gab, Bitchute, Parler, Minds, etc. to see what goes on.
The word is:Collusion.
Trump gets his message out unmolested via Twitter. So, there’s that.
That’s great news. Piss off the leader of the Senate because you are determined to conceal numerous death threats against him.
That’s some real mensa strategy there.
:)Twitter loves us-not.Get better Mitch.
I did a search I can’t find his video anyplace.
