It seems like every day, a member of the left-wing is calling for the censorship of their political opposition. This is actually very sad, but it continues to manifest and must be called out accordingly. Americans witnessed this towards the end of last month when 2020 Democrat Joe Biden called for Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to be banned from appearing on any major news network; Biden claimed that Giuliani would only engage in the promotion of “debunked conspiracy theories.”
Now, the latest 2020 Democrat to urge for censorship is Kamala Harris. In the wake of President Trump’s response to whistleblower allegations and mistruths being told about his conversation with the leader of Ukraine, Harris believes that Trump’s Twitter account should be banned.
Breitbart News reports Harris’ claims that the president’s words are “hurting” people and he should, therefore, face censorship from the Twitter platform altogether.
A Deeper Look at Harris’ Interest in Censoring Trump
Yesterday, Harris sat down for an interview with CNN. During this time, Harris talked about the Ukraine controversy and the president’s response. Trump has been understandably critical of the Democrat Party and the whistleblower in the wake of the latest move to push for impeachment. Still, Harris maintains that Trump should not be allowed to tweet or be “irresponsible with his words.”
The 2020 Democrat’s words read as follows:
“I frankly, think [when you look at what he’s been tweeting today, directed at the whistleblower, directed at so many people], based on this and all we’ve seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress that frankly his Twitter account should be suspended. There’s plenty of now evidence to suggest that he is irresponsible with his words in a way that could result in harm to other people…and so the privilege of using those words in that way should probably be taken from him.”
Finally, Harris wrapped up her statements by stating that “other mechanisms” should be put in place to force President Trump to “exercise self-restraint.”
Censorship, Speech, and Double Standards
What people need to understand is the massive double standard here. Democrat can tweet, call for impeachment, and accuse the president of all kinds of crimes; however, when Trump responds, his Twitter account should be banned because his words are “dangerous” and could “hurt people.” Not only is this immensely hypocritical, but it shows that Democrats are scared of pushback.
The president’s account should not be censored and he should continue to respond to bogus allegations and baseless charges which the Democrat Party is trying to bring against him.
