This is sheer insanity.
According to Mediaite, one of President Donald Trump’s official online accounts was SUSPENDED by Amazon for “hateful conduct.” The account suspended was on an online video platform called “Twitch” which is owned by Amazon. Trump’s account was suspended for a speech he made in 2015.
Censorship Is Here
What’s worse is that the company targeted Donald Trump on purpose. This was not an accident.
According to a spokesperson with Twitch, the company chose to suspend Donald Trump over what they claim was a “hateful” speech he made in 2015.
A Twitch spokesperson told Mediaite of the Trump suspension. saying:
“In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed.”
The company even threatened Trump with an “indefinite suspension” if he says something they disagree with again:
“Hateful conduct is a zero-tolerance violation. We will take action on all accounts associated with such conduct with a range of enforcement actions, including and up to indefinite suspension.”
They’ve Gone Too Far
When massive mutli-billion dollar companies have the power to shut down the president of the United States, then there is a very serious problem.
This is election interference. You don’t see these companies turning off accounts of Barack Obama or other Democrats. This is purely about silencing Republicans.
This needs to stop. We cannot allow this censorship to continue.
