After a mob festooned with Trump regalia stormed the Capitol, waving a Confederate flags in the people’s house and committing multiple acts of vandalism and violence, Facebook and Twitter finally suspended President Donald Trump from posting on their respective social media platforms.
Trump’s treasonous act of inciting the MAGA crowd to lay siege to the Capitol was the final straw for the social media behemoths.
Trump was a social media menace before he became president, and he only ramped up his racist and seditious posts during his four-year term. For four interminable years Twitter and Facebook gave the inciter-in-chief free reign to spread his Gospel of violence, hatred and intolerance.
Facebook and Twitter allowed the traitor-in-chief to exploit their platforms to spread his conspiracy theories, blatant lies and racist garbage under the guise that political leaders enjoyed a special dispensation to run roughshod over their rules and standards because it was important for the public to know what they are thinking.
In hindsight it was a huge mistake for social media sites to allow Trump to post messages condoning, indeed inciting violence. This despicable excuse for a human being must be banned for life from Twitter, Facebook and every other social media platform.
