Twitter Temporarily Blocks Sheriff David Clarke’s Account Over Media Tweets



Twitter temporarily banned former Sheriff David Clarke until he took down three tweets they found unacceptable. Even though 24 hours ago, they said they saw nothing wrong with the tweets. After they got massive pressure from the left and the media, they conveniently changed their minds. Go figure. He said Tuesday that he would not be “intimidated into silence” on Twitter after his account was briefly suspended over tweets bashing the media. And I do mean bashing… the one that caused the left to flip out was a cartoon of a wrestling ring where Trump was holding CNN and Sheriff Clarke was kicking CNN in the face. Touchy.

The tweet has now been deleted, but the Internet is forever. I’ve included it so you can enjoy. Clarke said he wanted to punch the “lying lib media” and “make them taste their own blood.” The media had a collective meltdown over it. Last week, the leftist media dug up fake news on Clarke and spread it around. It had to do with an altercation on a plane from last spring. A guy accosted Clarke and he had him removed. The nutcase said Clarke intimidated him. The guy is suing Clarke and at the time the FBI wanted a look at Clarke’s emails. They found nothing substantive. The case was closed. But Clarke is still perceived as a threat, so the media went after him again on it. They got ticked when he hit back.

Obviously, the art of hyperbole is lost on the media snowflakes out there. Twitter got multiple complaints even after initially saying the tweets did not violate their policy. They abruptly reversed course and went fascist. Clarke’s account was placed on a temporary lock that allowed him to send direct messages only until he took corrective action. In other words, delete the tweets or you will not be allowed back on Twitter. Ever.

Clarke has always been a strong Trump supporter. He’s high profile because he’s a black Democrat who is also very, very conservative and he solidly stands for the rule of law. He’s a monstrous threat to the left. They just can’t leave the poor guy alone. Clarke is a senior adviser to the America First Action PAC. He returned to Twitter on Tuesday morning and the offending tweets were deleted from his page. That’s a shame, but we all know he was forced into it by the Twitter overlords.

“I will not be intimidated into silence by lying lib media,” Clarke tweeted. “I will not be intimidated by liberal hyper partisan government hacks who weaponized government authorirty [sic] to go after people whose views they don’t like. I will stand and fight for truth and what I believe is right. Join me.” Twitter is keeping mum on the whole incident. Cowards. Clarke is not speaking to CNN and I don’t blame him in the least.

Twitter’s censorship here is subjective: “We have reviewed the account you reported and have locked it because we found it to be in violation of the Twitter Rules: If the account owner complies with our requested actions and stated policies, the account will be unlocked.” The Twitter rules note that users “may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people.” That’s not what happened here and they damn well know it.

Clarke did tweet on the whole mess, “I know I’m winning. Some snowflake lib made a complaint to Twitter because of my earlier tweet about black kids being exploited by lefty failed policies at Ballou High School. I said in my tweet, this CRAP is criminal. Twitter said no violation of rules. Diaper change time.” He’s absolutely right here. But there is no true free speech on Twitter since it is owned by shareholders who dictate policy.

In an attempt to make Clarke look as bad as possible, CNN brought up the fact that he is a Trump supporter, didn’t go to work for Trump when he said he was and retired as sheriff. That is sheer propaganda and an obvious attempt to smear Clarke. It’s disgusting. CNN is making themselves look really bad here and so is Twitter. And America is watching, count on it.
