After a day of conflict and agitation within Washington DC, some of which was agitated by Antifa and far-left provocateurs (will come out in the days ahead), President Trump urged calm and peace in a Twitter message and video. However, the social media platforms did not like that President Trump continued to challenge the Biden election win:
“We had an election that was stolen from us,” the President said. You have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order,” Trump said. “We don’t want anybody hurt.” “I know how you feel. But go home and go home in peace,” adding: “We love you. You’re very special.” In what can be considered a planned approach Twitter then blocked and suspended President Trump’s account:
Twitter went one-step further in their efforts to be the arbiters of public discourse and said they will continue to monitor the “situation in real time, including examining activity on the ground and statements made off Twitter. We will keep the public informed, including if further escalation in our enforcement approach is necessary.”
Twitter also threatened to permanently suspend Donald Trump’s account:
Trump’s video has since been removed by Facebook.
“We prohibit incitement and calls for violence on our platform,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “We are actively reviewing and removing any content that breaks these rules.”
YouTube also deleted the video.
“We removed a video posted this afternoon to Donald Trump’s channel that violated our policies regarding content that alleges widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Election,” Farshad Shadloo, the company’s head of policy communications, said in a statement.
Trump tweeted later Wednesday evening that “a sacred landslide election victory” was “unceremoniously & viciously stripped away.”
That tweet has since been removed and Twitter has locked the president’s account for 12 hours. (read more)
It is clear the arrival of hundreds-of-thousands of President Trump supporters was an opportunity for the left-wing operatives of social and corporate media to take up actions intended to isolate, marginalize and eliminate the message of President Trump.
Invoking similar language used in our own deplatforming the social media operatives use terms of service violations around speech that challenge the results of the 2020 election.
No doubt there was a general strategy amid the left to drive a wedge in the MAGA coalition and stimulate a “violent extremist” narrative about the assembly today. This approach was somewhat predictable as the Trump coalition is a serious threat to both wings of the UniParty (Big Club) alliance.
Using Antifa-types to give the impression of violent Trump supporters is a tactic we have seen before. Once that agitation takes place then the media use their voices to paint the entire assembly as extremists, racists, or (Fill_In_ The_ Blank). This approach also allows the Republican political establishment to decry the voices of those who demand accountability; and provides a justification to ignore the content of the message.
Trump supporters in 2020/2021 painted as domestic terrorists, using the same process as Tea Party supporters were labeled as racists and terrorists in 2010/2011. The Alinsky method is to “isolate, ridicule and marginalize.”
The goal of the entire media and political network is to attempt to fracture the MAGA coalition and ensure that Donald Trump cannot carry a massive support group into the future. The Big Club is threatened by the united community of patriots.
Steady your resolve.
Vice-President Mike Pence was showcased as a stealth insider today. The statement he released this morning could have been released weeks ago; however, it was withheld until this morning for specific purposes.
Many people feared/suspected that some of the Pence efforts in the past four years -including advice and counsel to President Trump- were carried out with a duplicitous intent. The way Pence took action today, and the lack of communication to President Trump before his announcement, only seems to highlight and affirm those suspicions.
The next few weeks will be very interesting. Indeed, we can interpret the effort to silence President Trump’s voice today as not only an effort to shield Joe Biden, but also as an effort to deflect political criticism pointed toward Mike Pence.
Both DNC and RNC establishment clubs seem to have aligned against their common enemy, Donald J Trump.
