Twitter locked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's campaign account on Twitter today for posting a video of Democrat leftists threatening Senator McConnell in front of his home and using profanity.

As his campaign manager Kevin Golden observed, Twitter is perfectly fine allowing the words "Massacre Mitch" to trend nationally on their platform. But to post video of actual real time threats by Democrat leftists against Mitch McConnell at his home, that they will not tolerate.

Twitter locks McConnell campaign account over video of protesters hurling threats

Twitter locked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign account Wednesday for posting a profanity-laced video of protesters hurling threats toward the GOP lawmaker’s Kentucky home. A Twitter spokesperson said the @Team_Mitch account was “temporarily locked out of their account for a Tweet that violated our violent threats policy, specifically threats involving physical safety.”

McConnell’s campaign manager, Kevin Golden, confirmed the account was locked this morning “for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell.” The video featured a clip from a recent protest outside McConnell’s home in Louisville, where participants reportedly donned clothing and held signs that read “Massacre Mitch.”

“This is a problem with the speech police in America today,” Golden said. “Twitter will allow the words ‘Massacre Mitch’ to trend nationally on their platform. But locks our account for posting actual threats against us.”
This is partisan political bias in the extreme. It would be OK if Twitter just came out and owned the fact that they are an activist partisan political platform, but it is not OK as long as they pretend to be neutral.

The left never ceases to disgust me. Completely disgraceful, both the actions of the protesters and of the team at Twitter.

It is going to be interesting to see what Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey does to try to slither out of this one.

The rapidly growing violence and threats of violence by the far left and their media enablers is starting to spin out of control.

Yes. I was one of many who reported that tweet but Twitter seemed to have no problem with it.. Sent out after the mass shooting in Texas. McConnell and his staff are vile.

They allowed 'Slaughter Mitch' to trend, but suspended his account when it was highlighted what the protesters were saying, particularly, "Stab him in the heart?" Yep, doesn't get more biased than that.
