Twitter Goes Full Soviet



Twitter banned quite a few accounts based on an "enemies" list submitted by the SPLC. This included the accounts of Richard Spencer from NPI.

What is interesting is that these accounts were not engaged in "trolling" or "harassing" people. These accounts were silenced for advocating political speech that a non-government group wants to silence. As Richard Spencer uses Twitter for his business, the SPLC has caused him financial harm because they disagree with his peaceful political views.

A Right Wing group that attempted to silence people in such a manner would immediately be under FBI investigation for Civil Rights violations. I encourage President Trump to appoint a special prosecutor to look at organizations that attempt to silence Americans. It does not matter if you are Left or Right. If you are an American you should support the right of free expression.
