(ReliableNews.org) – There’s little doubt that big-tech companies have been throttling conservative voices, especially since Twitter permanently banned Donald Trump earlier this year. Twitter attempted to justify its decision to suspend his account due to concerns regarding the “risk of further incitement of violence” in the wake of the January 6 riot on the US Capitol Building. However, little to nothing seems to happen to liberals, one in particular, who do the same thing.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) flew to Minnesota on April 17 in the wake of the recent fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright and the ongoing trial of Derek Chauvin for George Floyd’s death. Waters told reporters that people need to “stay in the streets” and become even “more confrontational” if Chauvin is acquitted.

Her remarks drew a swift response from leading Republicans like House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). He accused her of “inciting violence.” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced her intention to introduce a “resolution to expel… Waters from Congress” for inciting violence.
At the same time, Twitter remains quiet about the incident. Twitter had no problem permanently banning Trump based on unsubstantiated rumors. However, Waters gets a pass on threats made on video.
