What you should know about Trump’s battle with Twitter

Contrary to spin, what Trump wants to do about social media censorship may not be what you think…

 

supporters have been waiting for for a
00:12
really long time and one of those things
00:15
has been to come down on social media
00:18
for its its abandonment of its agreement
00:23
to allow free speech and therefore get
00:26
immunity as a platform and it looks like
00:31
president Trump’s holding in that task
00:33
so what do you think that’s exactly
00:38
right and and and that’s what all of
00:40
these platforms claimed to be as
00:43
Facebook Twitter YouTube all of them
00:47
they they claim to be a platform where
00:50
you anyone could say whatever they
00:51
wanted I mean they couldn’t like show
00:53
porn or you know murder people on camera
00:56
sorts of things no illegal activity but
00:59
otherwise they would just say whatever
01:01
they wanted to say so with the
01:03
understanding that they were a platform
01:05
and not a publisher they were given
01:07
special status by Congress that special
01:11
status is what Trump is saying he’s
01:13
going to suspend by executive order so
01:15
that is a huge deal and you’ve had
01:19
Twitter just double down double down
01:21
double down and this is one of those
01:25
those things where where Trump has
01:28
prepared for this and as Twitter has
01:31
started to kind of try to turn the
01:32
screws to Trump in anticipation of the
01:35
election coming up in November now we’re
01:37
at the end of May so they’ve been
01:39
beginning to ramp it up ramp it up ramp
01:41
it up trying to damage president Trump
01:43
politically about president Trump’s one
01:44
step ahead of him and the first thing
01:46
he’s going to do is remove that status
01:48
because what are they doing well now
01:51
here’s how the left is twisting this
01:53
this is spit pure spin which of course
01:56
is just another way of saying lying and
01:58
they’re trying to you know create
01:59
excuses to make this you know sound like
02:02
oh this is a First Amendment right thing
02:04
but President Trump is in no way trying
02:07
to stop Twitter from saying whatever it
02:09
wants what he is trying to do is stop
02:12
them from
02:13
pretending to let everybody see what
02:15
they want where in reality what they’re
02:17
doing is they’re behind the scenes
02:19
crushing all the conservative voices and
02:22
promoting all the liberal voices because
02:24
that then is a publisher they are
02:28
publishing and behind a certain
02:31
philosophy that they’re trying to
02:32
promote which is of course the left that
02:35
is exactly the opposite of what they
02:37
said they would do when they were
02:39
allowed this special privilege so that
02:42
that’s the what the truth is the spin is
02:46
that President Trump is trying to
02:48
violate their first right amendments and
02:50
stop them from saying things somehow
02:51
which you know I’m not sure you know
02:54
that’s one of the things that’s the
02:55
problems that the press when people come
02:56
out say oh this is a violation of the
02:58
First Amendment for creative speech for
03:00
Twitter it’s like yeah okay how you how
03:03
is that happening I mean you explain
03:05
where you get him taking away their
03:07
special privilege because they’re
03:10
promoting a certain ideology how does
03:14
that turn into him stopping them from
03:15
saying something so what’s an example of
03:18
what you’re talking about but nobody
03:19
ever asks those questions it doesn’t
03:21
come up in the in mainstream media Fox
03:23
or anybody but that’s that’s that’s the
03:26
line that has been drawn in the sand and
03:29
I’ll have to say the guy who’s the head
03:31
of of Twitter is a freaking idiot and
03:34
just eating it I mean he’s good
03:36
destroyed his own business and for what
03:38
I mean he doesn’t see this coming as he
03:40
ramps up who has more power ham or the
03:44
president United States and clearly it’s
03:46
the president of united states so you
03:48
know this miss it for the president is
03:51
just completely within his rights as
03:55
president of the United States to remove
03:57
this special status from these guys and
04:00
it’s clear of proof I mean you and I on
04:03
the show of talked about the bias that
04:05
comes out of Twitter and Facebook and
04:07
YouTube and and in fact the Vlad selfish
04:11
blog YouTube channel got taken away
04:13
why because you were targeted because
04:15
you’re not liberal and they’ve targeted
04:19
person after person after person we’ve
04:21
all seen it happen over and over with
04:23
the way that the IRS stopped the
04:25
nonprofit organization
04:27
that were conservative or religious or
04:29
Christian conservative that they were
04:30
stopping them from forming but rushing
04:32
through all of the liberal organizations
04:34
so this is this is one of the first
04:36
times where ever avert actually starting
04:38
to see a president United States really
04:40
work for the people of the United States
04:42
where we the people are free to say what
04:45
we want to say and and for me personally
04:47
I know I don’t care what liberals want
04:49
to say they’re welcome to say whatever
04:51
they want to say on MSNBC but what’s
04:54
what I don’t like and where Democrats
04:56
should come out in the defense of us on
04:59
this who other people who want to say
05:01
alternate alternate perspectives is they
05:05
should back this because these things
05:08
cut both ways you know today you know
05:11
they are are trying to politically
05:13
destroy the voice of conservatives but
05:15
tomorrow can be the voice of the
05:17
Conservatives trying to destroy the
05:18
voice of liberals so all Americans
05:20
should stand united on this and Twitter
05:22
is clearly out of their frickin mind and
05:25
morons we’re seeing the leadership at
05:28
Facebook be more intelligent they’re
05:30
just as guilty they’re exactly the same
05:33
thing doing all of the same stuff but
05:35
now they’re kind of backing down at this
05:38
confrontation saying no no no no no
05:40
we’re you know we’re not going to do
05:42
that we’re not going to edit what the
05:44
president says we’re not going to goof
05:45
around with any of that stuff you go say
05:46
what you want to say and we’re gonna
05:48
stay out of it so I think you may see
05:50
some of this ratcheting back on Facebook
05:52
they’ll be doing it quietly behind the
05:54
scenes but they’re not going to be
05:56
forcefully pushing it as an issues so
05:59
Twitter and Facebook and all these guys
06:01
YouTube they’re going to lose that
06:02
status and that’s that’s going to happen
06:05
and it’s going to be because of Twitter
06:07
unless of course I mean if I were a
06:09
stockholder in Twitter I’d be absolutely
06:12
pitching a freaking fit because this guy
06:14
whose CEO is going to make Twitter stock
06:16
worth nothing because he’s going to
06:18
destroy the value of the company through
06:20
political abject stupidity I mean this
06:23
is stupid this is you know in normal
06:27
time is what it would be like to go up
06:29
and just you know punch a cop for no
06:30
reason standing on the street normally
06:32
then you’d get mobbed by the cops
06:34
and a lot of trouble I mean he’s pokin
06:36
he’s pokin the wrong guy in the eye over
06:38
this thing and he can only lose I mean I
06:41
don’t know what he has in his mind but I
06:43
would say it’s very typical of the left
06:44
the left only speaks among themselves
06:46
and he thinks he’s doing some righteous
06:48
whatever you know on the left for a
06:50
leftist cause or something but you know
06:52
I wonder what in his mind he imagines as
06:54
a successful outcome because there you
06:57
know the the best he can hope for is to
07:00
kind of hold on to a reduced version of
07:03
what he has that’s the best-case
07:05
scenario worst case scenario he’s going
07:08
to lose control completely be booted out
07:09
and if I were like I said if I run the
07:11
board or I up as a stockholder
07:13
I’d be going look dude I know we’re
07:15
gonna hold a vote you know you’re you
07:16
need to go succeed elsewhere because
07:18
you’re not making it here anymore that
07:19
was moronic decision and had just come
07:22
out apologize public to the president
07:24
United States and get out of the
07:26
business of a promoting of perspective
07:28
within Twitter and same for Facebook and
07:30
YouTube and all of that but we know how
07:32
those rules are done some of the spin on
07:36
mainstream media’s been whoa well you
07:38
know Trump’s not following the rules
07:39
he’s promoting violence all that but
07:41
again it’s one of those things he’s
07:42
promoting by that’s great
07:43
where is that and they come up with some
07:46
screwball whatever well he used the word
07:49
you know X Y Z and that’s a dog whistle
07:52
for this that means that what he wants
07:54
is that and they come up with some
07:56
complex BS explanation of how he’s
08:00
secretly you know calling for violence
08:02
in the streets of the United States I
08:04
mean it’s just one of those things like
08:07
I’ve said before I guess if you smoke a
08:09
lot of crack that stuff makes sense to
08:10
you but if you’re a normal person it
08:12
just you just listen to this stuff that
08:14
they spout and you got to shake your
08:16
head and go these guys are nuts how do
08:17
they get on TV yeah I didn’t mean while
08:20
IDs the DSA actually is calling for
08:23
violence on the streets that’s the first
08:25
yes yes yeah there’s a lot of backing
08:29
for us on the streets and it’s all from
08:31
the left all the vines they’re trying to
08:33
say these people on the street that are
08:34
rioting are are the right wingers but
08:36
it’s goofball at any rate it’s it’s
08:40
Twitter is destroying itself as the
08:42
bottom line they cannot win and the
08:44
president cannot
08:45
so it’s it’s one of those things why
08:48
would you get into a fight that you
08:49
can’t win and can only lose it makes it
08:51
rough Li two years ago a similar
08:53
situation happened after an taifa had
08:57
started interfering with freedom of
08:59
speech on Berkeley and other campuses
09:01
and president from tide funding to
09:04
universities with their ability to
09:06
protect the First Amendment rights of
09:07
students and suddenly Dean started
09:10
calling conservatives into their offices
09:13
and asking how they could help them set
09:14
up the clubs that up until then had been
09:16
denied so for those who doubt the
09:18
president’s resolve or ability to get
09:20
results on this I think you just have to
09:23
look at that yeah and I think well let’s
09:28
see what happens to Twitter but I
09:29
they’re they’re going to wake up all
09:30
morning with a big surprise
09:40
you
