Twitter Locks Mitch McConnell’s Account After Posting Video Of Protestors At His Home


You may or may not have heard about the calls for violence against Mitch McConnell that the left has been taking too far, going as far as to protest right outside the Senate Majority Leader’s home in Kentucky, ever since the mass shootings.

Since McConnell has stood up for Americans’ 2nd amendment rights and not jumped on the liberal bandwagon to “ban all guns,” he’s earned the hatred of the left, some of whom are calling for his murder while protesting outside his home where he is in recovery from a shoulder injury! 

The hashtag #MassacreMitch was even trending a few days back on Twitter…(this is the tolerant left for you.)

Even though Twitter didn’t censor the hashtag, the social platform has reportedly been shadow-banning and suspending accounts or posts having to do with the protests outside McConnell’s house, supposedly for “violating their violent threats policy.”

Despite the official reason for the bans, many suspect that the real reason has more to do with Twitter’s left-wing bias – that they don’t want people to know the truth about violence being pushed by liberals.

This suspicion was further strengthened today, when the “Team Mitch” Mitch McConnell campaign Twitter page was locked after posting videos of the protests outside of his home.

Take a look at news of this that others have been calling Twitter out for:

Here's the disturbing video of the protests that the Mitch McConnell account posted from Lee Zeldin:

Here's a Fox News video of the protests on Youtube in case the other one gets taken down:

"Just stab the m----- f----- in the heart."

How disgusting is that?!?!

Fox News has more to say about the McConnell account's suspension having to do with the protests and calls for violence:

n a livestream video of the protest, Black Lives Matter Louisville leader Chanelle Helm, standing with other demonstrators outside McConnell's home, said that he "should have broken his little raggedy, wrinkled-(expletive) neck" rather than fracturing his shoulder.

"Just stab the m----- f----- in the heart," Helm said, after a fellow demonstrator referenced a McConnell voodoo doll.

Helm told the Lousville Courier-Journal in an interview on Wednesday that she had no regrets.

"McConnell doesn’t care about people who actually do break their necks, who need insulin, who need any type of medication, because they want to stop and prevent health care for all," Helm said. "And that is something that every American out here wants. There’s only a few Americans who don’t want that, and those people are politicians and their cronies."

As of late Wednesday, the Team Mitch had not deleted the offending tweet containing the video. Twitter's policy for accounts violating its rules on certain offending content is to require the account owners to delete offending tweets in order for their access to be restored unless the conduct is so severe it warrants an indefinite suspension.

Its most recent tweet, made late Tuesday, Team Mitch called the threats outside McConnell's home "serious calls to physical violence" and said law enforcement had been notified.

Another Twitter user who posted the video, The Daily Wire's Ryan Saavedra, said Twitter simply does not want the "Left's pure hatred exposed because it damages the narrative that many at Twitter have."

"By suspending me for telling the truth, Twitter is making it clear that they seek to control the news media and only allow content on their platform that does not expose the evil, projection, and hypocrisy of the political Left," Saavedra wrote. "Do not be surprised if they permanently ban me."

Saavedra added: "By suspending McConnell's re-election campaign for exposing the violent rhetoric directed at McConnell, which was allowed to foment on Twitter for days, Twitter is interfering in the 2020 elections in a manner to help Democrats and hurt Republicans."

The New York Times also said:

Senator Mitch McConnell’s re-election campaign remained locked out of its Twitter account Thursday after posting a tweet that included a video of people making violent threats against the majority leader in front of his Louisville, Ky., home.

The tweet, in which the campaign labeled the protesters an “angry left-wing mob,” is no longer visible on the account, @Team_Mitch. But Kevin Golden, Mr. McConnell’s campaign manager, said that Mr. McConnell’s staff members had not deleted the tweet themselves and were still unable to use the account.

In a statement, a Twitter spokeswoman said the company had temporarily locked the account because it had posted “a tweet that violated our violent threats policy, specifically threats involving physical safety.”

The company’s policy prohibits users from sharing content that includes violent threats made against an individual or a group. That left Mr. McConnell’s team in the unusual position of being locked out of its account for posting a video of a threat that had been made against Mr. McConnell.

By Thursday afternoon, officials from the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee said they would forgo buying new ads on Twitter until it unfroze the Team Mitch account. And by late Thursday, Mr. McConnell declared to WHAS radio in Louisville that he and his team were “in a major war” with Twitter and had not given up their fight.
