UPDATE: Twitter, Facebook, YouTube BAN Trump After Messages Promoting Peace

'We removed it because on balance we believe it contributes to rather than diminishes the risk of ongoing violence...'

(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter escalated the ongoing chaos by censoring President Donald Trump’s posts and freezing his account, even though he told protesters to “go home with love & in peace.”

Twitter removed three tweets from Trump’s account, telling him that he would be suspended for 12 hours and then indefinitely if he did not remove the tweets, NBC News reported.

Even if he takes these tweets down, Twitter warned that it would remove him if he repeatedly violated its rules.

Trump’s posts condemned violence and told protesters to go home, but he continued to assert that the voter fraud and unconstitutional election procedures stole the presidential election from him.

Twitter slapped a one-minute video of Trump speaking with a label that said, “This claim of election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, Retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence.”

YouTube posted a similar statement regarding its decision to ban the president, saying that the company prohibits “content that alleges widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome.

Facebook followed suit: “The violent protests in the Capitol today are a disgrace. We prohibit incitement and calls for violence on our platform. We are actively reviewing and removing any content that breaks these rules.”

(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) As outraged protestors made their voices heard in the only manner available to them following massive censorship and corruption, social media companies reportedly blocked President Donald Trump supporters on social media and may even have prevented his messages promoting peace from getting published.

YouTube, Facebook and Twitter all removed Trump’s video, which other figures including Democrat Joe Biden had insisted he tape to augment an earlier tweet asking any of his supporters involved in the breach to stand down.

“This is an emergency situation and we are taking appropriate emergency measures, including removing President Trump’s video,” tweeted Facebook integrity chief Guy Rosen, according to Politico.

“We removed it because on balance we believe it contributes to rather than diminishes the risk of ongoing violence,” he claimed.

In the video, Trump expressed empathy with protestors frustrated and outraged over the vote fraud that occurred in the Nov. 3 election and subsequent special election in Georgia.

However, he told those present for the Washington, DC, rally that it was time to “go home” and insisted that the country must have peace.

Twitter also deleted two other Trump tweets, and it even blocked comments to Trump’s posts prior to removal, Forbes reported.
