(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) ALX, a conservative political pundit on Twitter, was suspended for posting a photo of Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi holding the Ukrainian flag up in a Congressional session on Wednesday.
Americans: I wish we had leaders who put our country first.

“Americans: I wish we had leaders who put our country first,” said the tweet that got the account banned. He followed with the reply of Congress, then showing a picture of the two officials holding up the flag.
According to the Post Millennial, the picture was taken at a congressional session featuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who gave a speech discussing the Russian invasion of his country. He ended his speech by requesting more American funds.
“Hopefully this was just a error and not an action taken by a remaining politically motivated activist Twitter employee. I think this will be fixed soon, but I would like to find out how this happened,” ALX told the Post Millennial.
ALX recently returned to Twitter as part of the mass un-banning of conservative voices.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk swiftly responded to the ban, saying it was not in violation of the terms of service. ALX’s account is now reinstated and the ban on the tweet was rescinded.
It certainly isn't privately produced intimate media either. This could be a mass-reporting campaign by state-run farms https://t.co/MAqgQKa6Mf

There were “reports of tons of accounts that were locked out for tweets that were taken down for posting images of Zelenskyy’s speech… and being critical of him.”
“Seems to be a mass takedown campaign by Twitter,” reported journalist Jack Posobiec, who also theorized that it could be a “mass-reporting campaign by state-run farms.”
The flag in the picture was a “thank you” gift from Zelenskyy to the American officials.
The foreign president also met with President Joe Biden, who promised—along with several other U.S. officials—to fund the war “as long as it takes.”
Biden explained that Putin could end the war by surrendering, though he made it clear he does not expect that to happen.
“We also know that Putin has no intention, no intention of stopping this war. And the United States is committed to ensuring that the brave Ukrainian people can continue to defend their country against Russian aggression as long as it takes,” Biden said.
