Where Is President Trump as His Enemies Crush MAGA Supporters?
Fox News personality Tucker Carlson raised a terrific constructive criticism of President Trump on a recent episode of his show: Why isn’t the president standing up for the 63 million people who voted for him, even as the political left engages in censorship and violence against us?
That’s a great question.
Carlson asked the viewers if Obama would have stood for it if any of “his” voters had been trampled on by conservatives in such a fashion. And of course, the answer is no – we know this because Obama sent the Justice Department to kick in doors of conservatives for even perceived slights.
So, where is President Trump as MAGA supporters are being kicked in the streets by Antifa and kicked off of the internet by Twitter?
Talk radio host Lars Larson is only the latest conservative to be banned by Twitter for patriotic, protected speech that was banned as “hateful” by the good-thinking progressives of Silicon Valley.
Larson is one of the most influential talk radio personalities in the country. He’s on the air in the Portland market for an astonishing six hours every day, doing a 3-hour Pacific Northwest show followed directly by a 3-hour national show.
That’s not easy, by the way – Larson’s work ethic is second to none in the business.
When Portland police shot a man during a domestic disturbance recently, former failed mayoral candidate Sarah Iannarone tweeted, “We know the police kill. Question is whether we will ever stop funding this deadly paramilitary force and start funding things that actually keep the people of Portland safe.”
Twitter had no problem with the leftist failed politician calling the police murderers, stating that police should be defunded or that they are a ‘deadly paramilitary force.’ That type of speech is perfectly fine with Twitter.
Lars Larson responded to Iannarone’s tweet, however, by pointing out that the person shot by police was a paranoid schizophrenic who had barged into a person’s home.
When police arrived, the guy attacked them with a knife and they shot him during a wrestling match inside the house. Everything about the incident seems like it was a justifiable use of force by the cops.
Larson asked Iannarone on Twitter, “What’s your millennial snowflake solution to that situation with the cops?”
That was simply too offensive to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and his speech-policing censors. Larson was banned and locked out of his Twitter account as a hateful hater spewing hate, despite being one of the most recognizable figures in America.
He was locked out of his account for 12 hours before having his tweeting privileges reinstated.
Serious question: Why didn’t President Trump direct the Justice Department to send FBI agents to kick in Jack Dorsey’s front door, throw him in handcuffs, accidentally step on the back of his neck once or twice (maybe three times) and throw him in federal prison for felony conspiracy to deprive an American citizen of a constitutionally-protect right?
Because we know damn good and well that Barack Obama did that to anyone who slighted his supporters. Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saw to it that amateur filmmaker Nakoula Bassely Nakoula went to prison.
He was the guy who produced the silly YouTube video that Hillary falsely blamed for the Benghazi attack. Nakoula’s prosecution was entirely an act of political revenge on the part of the Obama administration.
And how about Dinesh D’Souza?
Leftwing loon Rosie O’Donnell openly bragged on national television that she had far exceeded campaign contribution limits to help five Democrats running for US Senate. Nothing happened to her.
But conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was sent to prison for accidentally exceeding campaign contribution limits in a local election when he gave a personal friend a little bit too much money (after getting federal and local donation limits confused).
D’Souza’s real crime was making documentary films about how awful Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are. Obama wouldn’t allow that to stand.
If Twitter had been a conservative outlet that was constantly banning liberals, Obama would have had it shut down. He would have had the Justice Department literally kicking in doors and confiscating hard drives, laptops, phones and soy lattes.
He wouldn’t allow his followers to be treated the way that Lars Larson and far too many conservatives are being treated these days.
Where are you, President Trump?
We’ve got your back, so how about returning the favor?
