Facebook and Twitter urged to suspend Trump accounts following attack on Ilhan Omar

Source: rawstory


14 Apr 2019 at 14:26 ET

Supporters of Rep. Ilhan Omar are urging Facebook and Twitter to suspend President Donald Trump’s accounts after the president posted a video attacking the Minnesota Democrat.

“We don’t have to give hate a platform,” a new petition states.

Launched Saturday by the Women’s March, it accuses the president of “inciting violence and engaging in hate speech” through the “propaganda video targeting Congresswoman Omar” he posted Friday which uses an out-of-context phrase Omar said in reference to 9/11.

.....................................


The petition calls on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to “do the right thing” and “[s]uspend him from Twitter and Facebook for inciting violence and engaging in hate speech. Remove his propaganda video targeting Congresswoman Omar.”

2. I think someone wrote they don't like when someone writes "It's hard to believe", but...

it's hard to believe they only have 9000+ signatures on there since yesterday. I think it just shows how scared this country is of tRump. Oh, we can post on here anonymously, but when it comes to putting your first and last name and email address, it's a little too scary. We really are scared he'll come for me.

5. If you're waiting on F--kerberg or Jack to do the right thing

You'll be waiting till hell freezes over.

The only way they'll respond is if their companies take a financial hit.

7. It's adorable that anyone thinks either platform would do anything about this....

1) They actively love it. It's what they live for.
2) They fear the backlash from the cult members

20. "They fear the backlash from the cult members" - Um, no

These are multi-billionaires. They fear nobody. It's all about the flow of rubles into their wallets. That's it.

8. Absolutely. Private companies do not have to tolerate hate speech like American citizens are

 

forced to because of a flawed interpretation of the limits of free speech.

Where is the corporate media on this, twiddling it’s corporate thumbs as usual. looking the other way so as to remain neutral, even if it is good versus evil, neutral is the prime directive.

21. They have no "flawed interpretation"

The owners of these private platforms know very well that the first amendment doesn't apply to their enterprise. They promote hate and divisiveness for only one reason: It makes them even richer.

I don't want to see his accounts suspended. He uses them daily to show how idiotic he is

11. We all know that will NEVER happen. They are commercial enterprises

It's silly to even suggest this. Time after time after time the social platforms find some "excuse" to not ban him. That is never going to change. It brings them too many subscribers.

Especially for a politician who abuses his power , or suggests others to do his bidding for him .

14. I dunno about Facebook,

 

but if Trump lost his Twitter account, he'd shoot himself in the middle of Fifth Avenue!

In other words, I completely agree with the petition.

17. Facebook and Twitter give No Fucks

They love the traffic and subsequent revenue that Dolt 45 brings. Their moral or ethical standards only apply to regular folks, and even then it's for show.

24. Twitter won't suspend Trump. He's too much of a cash cow.

I have little doubt the folks in charge would suspend him if they thought they could do it without taking a hit, but they know that doing so would hurt their profits. They also probably fear what Trump would try to do them if they did it.

28. Agreed - and judging by the fact that none of the users is proposing a boycot till these 2

start enforcing gtheir own rules against hate speech and stop serving as propaganda outlets .... well lets just say its infantile to think that FB & Twit are just going to give up their cash cow voluntarily, without some encouragement to do so.

Theres people who gave up a lot - sometimes their lives - to fight facism and other things.... and now some folks cant be bothered to give up social media for a few lousy weeks or months?
