They’ve censored for clearly political reasons, but where is their ‘concern for community standards’ when their platform is used to endanger the safety of private citizens?
Fox News is sick of the Social Media Platform’s double-standards.
Social Media and Big Tech are Leftist activists. We all ‘get’ that by now.
They daydream about doing to the rest of America what they’ve done to California. Whether America wants that or not. Leftist Want A ‘New Civil War’ – This Post Is Disturbing
One of their own number wrote that story, and their current brass praised it. ‘Nuff said, no surprise there.
But when their platform is used to threaten the lives or safety of private citizens in their homes, that should qualify as an abuse of ‘community standards’ shouldn’t it?
After all, an angry mob damaged the front door of a mother at home with her children — while they knew dad was out at work.
Has Twitter’s CEO @jack had anything to say bout that? Of course not.
Hell, Louis Freaking Farrakhan still has a Twitter account. He’s the ‘Jews are Termites’ guy running Nation of Islam that likes to hang out with prominent Leftists, up to and including Linda Sarsour, Keith Ellison, Maxine Waters and even Obama himself. Oh, and then he went to Iran and joined in a chant of Death to America.
Politics or no, there is absolutely no excuse for what Twitter did (or, rather, DIDN’T do) when the private address of Tucker Carlson was published on their platform.
A source at Fox News told Mediaite the network’s social media shut-down is a response to the protestors that mobbed the home of Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night.
“[This] is a conscious decision in light of what was done to Tucker,” the source said. They suggested Twitter was fostering a dangerous climate and was not responsive to requests to remove content that targeted the Fox News host.
The protestors, apparently aligned with an anti-fascist group, chanted “Racist scumbag, leave town” outside Carlson’s home in Northwest Washington on Wednesday. They spray-painted an anarchy symbol on his driveway and banged on his front door. Carlson wasn’t home, but he told the Washington Post that his wife, thinking it was a home invasion, hid in a pantry and called the police. According to the police report, she said she heard “loud banging and pounding on her front door.”
Even Facebook handled this better than Twitter:
According to source, Facebook was prompt when alerted to posts that included his home address. Twitter support reportedly told Fox to "open a ticket" and did not remove the posts.

Was boycotting Twitter the right play for Fox to make here? Or do you have another idea that might have been more effective?
