While the Democrats and the Corporate Media make a big deal about January 6, we should remember another dark day — January 8 when Twitter permanently banned Donald Trump from its platform.
The Democrats had their big show on Thursday with an address by the President and the Vice President, a solemn ceremony, a performance by the cast of “Hamilton”, and a candlelight vigil for the deaths that occurred that day and some days later. Clearly, this wasn’t in remembrance of Ashli Babbitt, the Trump supporter who was shot by a Capitol Police officer. This theatrical farce was done to make the riot of unarmed protesters look like a deadly attack on the Capitol as “insurrectionists” tried to undermine democracy.
Despite hundreds being detained, not a single person has been charged with sedition.
But there was an actual “threat to democracy” that occurred in January 2021 — when a social media company deplatformed the sitting President of the United States.
The hubris of booting Trump off of Twitter because his rhetoric is “dangerous” while allowing terrorists, racists, and Chinese propagandists to remain on the platform is still astounding a year later.
And that only got the ball rolling — Trump was banned from every other platform under the sun after that. Neither the campaign nor the man is allowed on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitch, Snapchat, Reddit, TikTok, Pinterest, or even Shopify.
Big Tech was just looking for an excuse, and the January 6 riot was enough for them.

We should have taken that day and memorialized it as the attack on freedom of speech and opposition to the Washington D.C. Uniparty that it clearly was.
If we weren’t sure that the fake solemnity that the Democrats and a handful of RINOs are currently engaged in isn’t just an attempt to continue the status quo, it was made crystal clear on January 6 when Democrats lined up to shake Dick Cheney’s hand at the ridiculous spectacle.
Ahead of the chamber’s noon session, Rep. Adam Schiff huddled at length with the two Cheneys — Liz is one of two Republicans who serve alongside the California Democrat on the committee investigating Jan. 6. Schiff, who knows what it’s like to be detested by the other party, told the former vice president and onetime Wyoming congressman, “It’s good to see you again.”
Following a brief moment of silence and remarks by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., several Democratic congresswomen embraced Liz Cheney. At several points she introduced her colleagues who serve alongside her on the Jan. 6 committee, including Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., to the former vice president by simply saying, “This is my father … This is dad.”

Recall, this is the man that Democrats treated as though he was the Devil incarnate for years. But now he’s not going to run for office, so he’s no longer a threat and collegiality can be resumed. As for Cheney’s daughter, well, she got the memo on how things run in Washington — if you play nice with the Democrats, the New York Times and Washington Post will run glowing op-eds about your bipartisanship and ability to “make Congress work” — unlike that “rogue” Democrat Senator from West Virginia that’s constantly throwing a wrench in the President’s agenda. Funny how Manchin isn’t considered a “Maverick” like the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was when he was ticking off his own party, isn’t it?
But enough about all of that.
Big Tech stole something from the world that day — a helluva great Twitter presence that had been in place for years before Donald J. Trump became President.
Let’s check out some of the classic Trump tweets from before and during his Presidency.
He always just said it like it was.
On Terrorism — “NO MERCY TO TERRORISTS you dumb bastards!”
He often got criticized, but he fought back against the “losers and haters.”
When he engages those “haters and losers” he says he does so with “great love” because they can’t help it that they were born effed up.
Donald Trump’s Twitter account was the greatest Twitter account that there has ever been, okay? I’ve never seen anything like it. It was PERFECT! The Absolute BEST!
But it was his engagement with the culture that made him so… unique.
Who could ever forget the Robert Pattinson/Kristin Stewart tweets?
When Trump became President, the unpredictability of his Twitter account was often criticized by the Corporate Media, but it appears to have worked out in America’s favor, especially with regard to “Little Rocket Man.”
The Greta Thunberg tweets were spectacular.
What the Corporate Media despised is that he was able to directly engage with “We The People” rather than have it filtered through them as intermediaries.
While so many lined up to criticize him, he must’ve been able to do something right because he was able to become extremely successful in three vastly different and difficult arenas.
Too bad Trump didn’t think to use AOC’s excuse that those who criticized him just want to date him. SAD!
Trump understood what a powerful social media presence could do — it can change the culture.
He warned about Biden’s weakness years before he ran for President, and called him out on trying to be a tough guy.
This list could not be complete without the Tweet Heard Round The World — “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.”
I miss those tweets! There is a searchable archive of Trump’s tweets here if you feel nostalgic.
One of Trump’s last tweets was a reminder to Patriots that together, we have a pretty big voice.

Take a moment and pour one out in remembrance of what we’ve lost.
The good news is that you might not be without the short bursts of Trump’s commentary much longer — his new social media platform is set to launch in February — on Presidents’ Day, of course.
Former President Donald Trump’s new social media platform Truth Social is expected to launch on Presidents’ Day, Feb. 21, according to the latest Apple App Store listing.
Truth Social, which the 45th president announced in October, is the latest conservative alternative to large social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, which the former president has repeatedly slammed for censorship.
The new app is being launched by Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) and can be preordered before its expected release date…
..“We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. This is unacceptable,” Trump said in a statement accompanying the announcement. “I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon.”
