Rep. Keith Ellison, a leftist with ties to radical Islamists including Louis Farrakhan, was on the publicly-funded NPR making the case for removing President Trump from Twitter. He should be banned for insulting the media, Ellison argued.
The arbiter of what can be seen on Twitter has decided President Trump is abusive and violates rules of decorum. Host Rachel Martin explained that “insulting people on Twitter is not against Twitter’s rules”.
Ellison, the erstwhile quasi-co-chair of the DNC and obvious skeptic suggested Twitter is keeping Trump on Twitter because he’s making money for them.
Martin said, “So the president sees his use of Twitter as a way to go directly to the American people, and you see that as damaging…”
Ellison’s answer to that was to compare Trump to King George, adding we fought a war against him.
“Well, I see it in general as a good thing to foster communication from the government, but I think it can be used in a very bad way because what he’s doing through his Twitter account and in other ways is circumventing the whole system to intimidate people, to pack courts, to intimidate the press. Also that he can just sort of run everything himself. And we fought a war of independence against somebody, King George, who was trying to do that. So this is really why I’m actually kind of concerned about his use of social media. Not the fact that he uses it, that’s actually a good thing. But the way that he uses it I think is damaging to representative democracy.”
If anyone is a totalitarian like King George it’s Ellison. He sure isn’t a supporter of free speech for the opposition and wants to decide what’s too “mean” to be on Twitter.
This is the man who compared George Bush to Hitler and 9/11 to the Reichstag fire. He’s a 9/11 Truther or was until he realized it hurt him publicly. He’s the guy who said, “Jews want to “oppress minorities all over the world”. Ellison once wrote a column that called the U.S. Constitution the “best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”
