Twitter Banned 70,000 People Sharing ‘QAnon Content’ Following Capitol Protest, Even If They Weren’t There and Had NOTHING to Do with the Violence

Twitter announced on Monday that they banned 70,000 accounts sharing “QAnon content” following the protest at the Capitol.

Of course, it goes without saying that they did not do the same for accounts sharing Black Lives Matter content during the deadly riots last year.

Twitter said in a statement that the mass censorship is “to protect the conversation on our service from attempts to incite violence, organize attacks, and share deliberately misleading information about the election outcome.”

“We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm. Given the violent events in Washington, DC, and increased risk of harm, we began permanently suspending thousands of accounts that were primarily dedicated to sharing QAnon content on Friday afternoon,” the blog post stated.

The platform added that the accounts “were engaged in sharing harmful QAnon-associated content at scale and were primarily dedicated to the propagation of this conspiracy theory.”

The ban did not just cover low profile individuals, they also banned pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood, General Michael Flynn, pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell and former 8kun administrator Ron Watkins.

They also banned the president himself.

Big tech’s attack on free speech did not end there.

Apple, Google, Amazon, liberal media, and other companies all worked together to effectively shut down Parler — a free speech platform that people had began to flock to in order to avoid censorship. The platform was number one in the Apple app store when it was taken offline.

Antifa Bullies Book Store Into Removing Andy Ngo’s Book; Still Sells 60+ Versions of Mein Kampf (VIDEO)

Iconic Portland book store Powell’s Books has now become the focal point of the antifa terrorists, as the thugs showed up to protest the store for carrying Andy Ngo’s book. Somehow the book store is now all of a sudden of a hub of evil fascists.

That’s right, not even the long-time book store is immune from antifa’s rage. Powell’s has been an integral part of the Portland community for several decades.

Willamette Week reports:

Responding to customer outcry, Powell’s Books announced Monday it would not carry in its stores a book by the conservative pundit Andy Ngo critical of Portland anti-fascists, but would continue to sell it online.

His book, Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy, will be published by Hachette on Feb. 21. Over the weekend, local activists launched an online campaign demanding Powell’s drop the book.

Powell’s responded that it had not hand-selected the book, but copies had been automatically supplied by Hachette, the publisher. The bookseller said it would not promote the book, or place it on store shelves.

That answer satisfied few. Several dozen people protested outside the front doors of Powell’s City of Books on West Burnside Street on Monday afternoon, blocking the front doors, and pledged to return Tuesday morning. Others criticized Powell’s for bowing to pressure about which books it would stock.

In response to an inquiry from WW, Ngo said he was disappointed.

“Given that Powell’s dedicates part of every year to banned and censored books, it’s a shame they’ve made the decision to restrict in-store sales of a book by a local author weeks ahead of release,” he said. “However, I also have sympathy for them given how ruthless Antifa have been in vandalizing and hurting local businesses.”

KOIN 6 reports that they ended up closing the store for the day and ushered customers out another exit.

But that isn’t enough for the maniacal communists, who are still upset, because reasons!

Ironically, Powell’s still sells over 60+ version of Mein Kampf on their website. You know, an actual nazi book.

One crazed protester actually addresses this, and excuses carrying Mein Kampf because it’s historical and not current:

Ironically, Powell’s holds an annual “Banned Books Week” where they celebrate works that had previously been deemed by the mainstream to be too controversial.

Trump and Pence Hold Oval Office Meeting – First Meeting Since Pence Betrayed Trump, His Supporters and the Country

President Trump and Vice President Pence met in the Oval Office Monday evening, according to reports and a statement by a senior administration official. According to reports  the two said they will finish out the remainder of their term in office, effectively ruling out Trump resigning or Pence invoking the 25th Amendment.

This was reported to be the first time the two men have spoken since Pence betrayed Trump and his supporters.

White House reporters have been reporting the same statement from a “senior administration official.” Via NBC News:

“The two had a good conversation, discussing the week ahead and reflecting on the last four years of the administration’s work and accomplishments. They reiterated that those who broke the law and stormed the Capitol last week do not represent the America first movement backed by 75 million Americans, and pledged to continue the work on behalf of the country for the remainder of their term.”

Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs had the same quote on the meeting, “Trump and Mike Pence, spoke today, I’m told — the 1st time since his supporters rioted at the US Capitol while the @VP was presiding over formal certification of the president’s re-election defeat…Pence and Trump in mtg today “reiterated that those who broke the law and stormed the Capitol last week do not represent the America first movement backed by 75 million Americans, and pledged to continue the work on behalf of the country for the remainder of their term,” SAO says”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) gave Pence a 24 hour ultimatum to invoke the 25th Amendment or she will proceed with impeachment against Trump starting Tuesday.

I want to call to your immediate attention the action to be taken tomorrow morning, when Majority Leader Hoyer will request Unanimous Consent to bring up the Raskin resolution. This resolution calls on the Vice President to convene and mobilize the Cabinet to activate the 25th Amendment to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office, after which the Vice President would immediately exercise powers as acting President. The text of the resolution can be found here.

If we do not receive Unanimous Consent, this legislation is planned to be brought up on the Floor the following day. We are calling on the Vice President to respond within 24 hours.

Next, we will proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor.

Republicans voted down a unanimous request consent by Pelosi Monday morning to vote on the 25th Amendment resolution.
