In Twitter’s latest display of left-wing bias, the platform censored and flagged Rep. Matt Gaetz’s tweet for “glorifying violence.”
Rep. Gaetz tweeted the following:
Now that we clearly see Antifa as terrorists, can we hunt them down like we do those in the Middle East?
— Matt Gaetz (@mattgaetz) June 1, 2020
Soon after, the tweet received a stern rebuke from the Twitter overlords, insisting “this tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence.” This is the same rationale the social media platform, self-avowedly left-wing, used to censor a recent riot-related tweet from President Trump.
While Gaetz’s tweet remains flagged, here are 10 other tweets actually “glorifying violence” that Twitter allows to stand sans a warning. Proving yet again that Twitter’s metric for censoring tweets has more to do with the political leanings of the user than the content itself.
I swear to god, I’m going to lose my shit. Omaha better be rioting. The Hive and The Gatsby better burn to the fucking ground. #JusticeForJamesScurlock

Black people built the White House they can burn it the fuck down if they fucking want to and anyone who says otherwise is a fucking cop.

All across the country, police are running out of crowd control ammunition and getting surrounded by protesters who outnumber them in magnitudes.
Those police are finding out that there's a lot more of us than there are of them.
Imagine if we were all armed.
