    "Federal Communications Commission Commissioner Brendan Carr scolded Twitter on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Wednesday for attaching a fact check to a tweet from President Trump, saying the decision represents "their own political, partisan viewpoint."

    "Since the 2016 election, the far left has hopped from hoax to hoax to hoax to try to explain the laws of the ballot box," Carr told host Tucker Carlson. "One of them is, they go after online platforms for the crime, in their view, of being neutral in the 2016 election, and they are committed to making sure these online platforms are not neutral again."

    On Tuesday, Twitter slapped a fact check notification on one of Trump's tweets for the first time, cautioning users that despite the president’s claims about mail-in voting, “fact checkers” say there is “no evidence” that it would increase fraud risks.

    TWITTER EXEC OVERSEEING FACT CHECK EFFORT HAS HISTORY OF ANTI-TRUMP TWEETS

    Carr accused Twitter of engaging in "political speech against the president," arguing that "these are not fact checks that are going on, this is opinion journalism."

    Always amazed at how naive you are “earl,” Carr was appointed by Trump, just like billy Barr he is suppose to step up and defend Trump’s ass, cover his back, that as why Trump appointed him

    So Twitter digs back to an obscure reference , and then claims using that reference is racial??? LOL
    This is the new/old leftist tactic. Relate every reference to something racist.

    These riots are a direct result of the medias biased coverage against LE, and glorification of criminal thugs.
    Keep changing the names. It doesn't change the meaning.

    Hello dukkha,

    Quote Originally Posted by dukkha View Post
    Twitter has once again taken action against President Trump, this time censoring a tweet for "glorifying violence" in his late-night response to the ongoing violence in Minneapolis.

    Trump said he couldn't not just watch the city be overwhelmed by the unrest over the death of George Floyd.

    “I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis,” Trump tweeted. “A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.



    Critics on Twitter said Trump's comments had racial undertones and said the term "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" can be traced back to Miami Police Chief Walter Headley in 1967 as a threat to black protestors during the civil rights movement.

    When asked for comment, Twitter pointed to a thread explaining the decision.

    "This Tweet violates our policies regarding the glorification of violence based on the historical context of the last line, its connection to violence, and the risk it could inspire similar actions today," Twitter Comms wrote. "We've taken action in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts, but have kept the Tweet on Twitter because it is important that the public still be able to see the Tweet given its relevance to ongoing matters of public importance."

    Right on Twitter!

    Good move.

    We have had enough lies and propaganda dog whistles.

    such a fucking cop out.
    You could have commented on whether Section 230 should be pulled or not,
    but you went for the ex over-repeated "private property"

    Just because JPP tolerates, hosts, and provides safe harbor for libel, racism, anti-semitism, islamophobia, misogyny does not mean other privately owned internet platforms have to follow that standard of conduct.

    Rightwing posters usually forget that framework
    JPP doesn't have Section 230 protection

    And using "dogs" figuratively. I have great respect for cops & the national guard - but those are very volatile situations, and particularly w/ Trump's tweet, it creates a very unpredictable situation.
    ROFL.
    Yes im sure the protestors/riots are UP IN ARMS OVER TRUMP'S TWEET!

    This is not about Donald Trump- even though he sure would like to exploit the problem and use it to create further chaos for his selfish little political gain.

    And so what do you do? YOU SUCK UP LIKE AN IDIOT SUCK UP TO DONALD TRUMP!
    explain yourself. what is it "about"
