(Before It's News)

Well, this doesn’t come as any surprise:

“SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter suspended a number of accounts associated with the alt-right movement, the same day the social media service said it would crack down on hate speech. …

Heidi Beirich, spokeswoman for the Southern Poverty Law Center, told USA TODAY that the center had asked Twitter to remove more than 100 accounts of white supremacists who violated Twitter’s terms of service. She also pointed to two alt-right accounts that had been verified by Twitter, including Spencer’s.

Twitter says it verifies an account by giving it a blue check mark when “it is determined to be an account of public interest.” Twitter launched the feature in 2009 after celebrities complained about people impersonating them on the social media service.

“We are encouraged by the decisions taken by Twitter. Now it is a matter of whether they are carried out,” Beirich said. “Obviously, well-known white supremacists violate these terms of service and we are glad it appears that Twitter has chosen to step up on these issues.”

Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat is being used as a new excuse by the leftwing commissars of political correctness to justify the political censorship of social media.

The SPLC, which this article confirms is behind the SJW campaign to censor Twitter, has been outraged for some time by the growth of popular hashtags like #hillaryshealth, #draintheswamp, #buildthewall, #maga. Many of these popular hashtags were started by the Trump campaign. See here, here, here, here, and here.

During the campaign, President Trump vowed to #DrainTheSwamp by breaking up media monopolies:

“”Over a hundred years ago, a pro-business Teddy Roosevelt busted up more than 40 oil, railroad, steel and other “trusts” that were wielding their rapacious monopoly power to gouge consumers and interfere with the efficient functioning of the American economy. Donald Trump will break up the new media conglomerate oligopolies that have gained enormous control over our information, intrude into our personal lives, and in this election, are attempting to unduly influence America’s political process.

“The very corporations that have gained from shipping America’s factories and jobs offshore are the very same media conglomerates now pushing Hillary Clinton’s agenda. She is the official candidate of the multinational ruling elite. …”

We’re calling on President Trump to make good on his campaign promise to #DrainTheSwamp … starting with media monopolies like Facebook and Twitter which are censoring political speech.
