Twitter asked me yesterday to delete this tweet:

It showed a person allegedly calling for violence against Mitch McConnell

The person appears to be a BLM activist who has met with Elizabeth Warren

I said no and they suspended me *and* McConnell's re-election campaign

They told me, in a private message, that they were going to remove the video contained in the tweet, which was embedded from someone else's account

They also asked me to delete my tweet, which was separate

My tweet was newsworthy and factually accurate

I said no
They said it was for McConnell's safety that they wanted the video removed

They could have removed the video and not my tweet

Keep in mind, Twitter allowed (#)MassacreMitch to trend on the platform for days and there are multiple tweets on this platform that list where he lives
McConnell's re-election campaign, @Team_Mitch, also shared the video, presumably to show the hatred and violence from the Democrats

Twitter also suspended their account for sharing the video

Again: Twitter suspended McConnell's campaign for showing the hatred directed at him
@Team_Mitch Here are the messages that McConnell's re-election campaign received from Twitter telling them that they could not expose the hatred coming from the Democrat Party directed at McConnell
@Team_Mitch Far-left protesters went to McConnell's home screaming @ him for gun control as he recovers from injury

A protester, who appears to be a Warren supporter, said somebody should "just stab the motherf*cker in the heart"

Another said they want someone to use a "voodoo doll" on him
@Team_Mitch McConnell, 77, fell and broke his shoulder. He sometimes has problems walking due to an issue w/his leg because he suffered from Polio as a kid

One of the protesters shouted: He's in there nursing his little broken arm, he should have broken his little raggedy wrinkled ass neck"
@Team_Mitch The protester screamed: "F*ck yo neck, b*tch. Murder Turtle! Murder Turtle! ... F*ck yo thoughts and prayers ... F*ck you, f*ck yo wife, f*ck everything you stand for"

Keep in mind, these are the same people who demand that law-abiding Americans give up their guns
@Team_Mitch I told Twitter that their logic did not make sense, that they wanted the tweet for McConnell's safety, because of many of the tweets they leave up and claim do not violate their rules

I pointed out these tweets to Twitter as examples:
@Team_Mitch This pic is of Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann, who was falsely smeared by the media

Sandmann and his school received death threats over what happened

Twitter took no action against this tweet

Sandmann is a minor

@Team_Mitch Twitter says it won't suspend Louis Farrakhan over tweet comparing Jews to termites thehill.com/policy/technol…
@Team_Mitch Peter Fonda called for women in the Trump administration to stripped naked and physically beaten

He called for Trump admin officials to have their kids taken from them and thrown in cages with pedophiles

Twitter allowed him to keep his verified account foxnews.com/entertainment/…
@Team_Mitch Right-winger Roger Stone made similar remarks, although not as severe, and was permanently banned from Twitter hollywoodreporter.com/news/roger-sto…
@Team_Mitch Back to convo w/Twitter:

They said that they were concerned about McConnell's safety, yet the Black Lives Activist / Warren supporter who called for McConnell's death is still allowed to have an account on Twitter

Keep in mind, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is a big BLM supporter
@Team_Mitch This is the activist who appears to have recorded the video and is the one who appears to have made many of the vile remarks toward McConnell
@Team_Mitch That far-left activist is a member of Louisville Democrat Mayor Greg Fischer's "Synergy Project," which essentially is an anti-violence taskforce

Reminder, this activist allegedly said McConnell should be stabbed in the heart and have his neck broken louisvilleky.gov/news/louisvill…
@Team_Mitch That activist doubled down on saying the following about McConnell:

"Just stab the motherf*cker in the heart"

The Courier-Journal reports: "[The activist] said she doesn't regret her comments."
@Team_Mitch The hate that Twitter allowed to trend for days literally showed up at McConnell's home

Far-left protesters showed up with signs that featured the hashtag (#)MassacreMitch
@Team_Mitch Twitter does not care about McConnell's safety

Twitter's own CEO promoted an article that essentially said Republicans need to wiped off the map in the U.S.

Twitter CEO Shares And Raves About Article Calling For Democrat Victory In Second ‘Civil War’ dailycaller.com/2018/04/07/twi…
@Team_Mitch Twitter is only concerned that they could be blamed if something happened to McConnell because they allowed the hate against him to spread on the platform and to trend for days
@Team_Mitch They also do not want the Left's pure hatred exposed because it damages the narrative that many at Twitter have

Twitter's CEO even admits that they are left-wing and biased

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: I 'fully admit' our bias is 'more left-leaning'
@Team_Mitch By suspending McConnell's re-election campaign for exposing the violent rhetoric directed at McConnell, which was allowed to foment on Twitter for days, Twitter is interfering in the 2020 elections in a manner to help Democrats and hurt Republicans
@Team_Mitch By suspending me for telling the truth, Twitter is making it clear that they seek to control the news media and only allow content on their platform that does not expose the evil, projection, and hypocrisy of the political Left.

Do not be surprised if they permanently ban me.
@Team_Mitch Oh and don't forget about this:

Democrat Rep. Joaquin Castro doxxed Trump donors on Twitter which is dangerous targeting in today's political atmosphere
@Team_Mitch This has been Twitter's response to this thread

Used to gain 500-750 new followers a day, now it's *0*

Reach is cut down by 1.5-2 million per day

This is how @Jack @leslieberland @vijaya respond when you call out @Twitter for forcing journalists to delete news-related content
@Team_Mitch @jack @leslieberland @vijaya @Twitter I get messages often from people saying they have to come to my account to see my tweets because they don't see them

What matters is the fact that they are blatantly taking action against someone who refused to remove content that exposed Democrat activists
@Team_Mitch @jack @leslieberland @vijaya @Twitter Also, I have had numerous people, who I am good friends with, randomly unfollow me and then they follow me back I ask them what happened and they said that Twitter unfollowed their account from my account.

I hear tons of people complaining that this problem happens to them
