    So WHAT if the tweet was removed?
    Deleted Tweets still exist through screenshots, etc...

    It's a violation of the constitution. I know leftist regressives don't care about that. Government should not be requesting the removal of tweets.

    Some on here obviously think democrats controlling media and social sites is just fine.

    Other countries that take down media at the behest of state requests
    China
    Russia
    Iran
    N Korea
    You know all the commie countries.

    Fascism in the democrat party is now a matter of fact.

    Only one Democrat spoke up about government riding roughshod over the 1A.

    Ro Khanna, you may be the only democrat in your party that isn't a complete snake. Or, perhaps, you were only worried about the coverup.

    Meanwhile, we find out exactly what democrats think about the 1A and the rest of the Constitution.

    You, the citizens of the United States, will believe what we tell you you can believe.

    PURE FASCISM.

    How did twitter stop people looking up the story and reading it themselves? That is the bit that has never made sense to me. Use any search engine at the time and you could just go to the original article. No need for twitter at all.

    What on earth are you talking about? Social media worked with the government to ban speech that would result in "vaccine hesitancy." Calling dissent and disagreements "propaganda" doesn't give the government the right to censor you. It is legal for individuals to spread "propaganda". We have a First Amendment for a reason... this very reason.

    The federal government is not allowed to suppress your First Amendment protected speech. Likewise, the Supreme Court has ruled that the government cannot work with private businesses to suppress speech that they wouldn't be allowed to suppress themselves. If the federal government worked with Twitter to help censor content it didn't like they would be in violation of the First Amendment. Just because the federal government wasn't successful in blocking a news story from every website on the internet doesn't mean they are allowed to do it on some. I don't understand your logic.

    Can you provide a single example?

    Of a tweet that was deleted on order of the government?

    Democrats do not care. No amount of evidence will ever convince them of any wrong doing by the Brandon administration. They don’t mind corruption in govt as long as it serves their purposes. Any evidence shown they will ignore, claim isn’t true, downplay, attack the source, and ignore some more.

    Not all Dems ofcourse, but i wish we had more principled Dems to reestablish some credibility to thier party.

    It was briefly touched on in a dismissive manner by most news outlets and surppressed on twitter.

    Exactly, bf...
    The idea that anything was "suppressed" is like claiming that Twitter suppressed "1+1=2"...
    "Yo, Man! Twitter suppressed "1+1=2"! And, I have no other way to get that info"...

    Given that Trump was President when the story broke I don't understand yours. Did he try to block the story? Why would he do that? The story was all over the news media. Any sentient being would have been aware of it and aware of the NY Post story. They could just go to the source and read about it there.
