In a series of tweets posted Friday evening, President Donald Trump warned tech giants such as Facebook and Twitter that he’s aware of their continued censorship of conservatives.

The president named four specific conservatives in his tweets: Hollywood actor James Woods, conservative commentator Paul Joseph Watson and conservative activists Diamond and Silk.

You can view the president’s tweets below:

The tweets were posted two weeks after Woods, a proud Hollywood conservative who’s long used his Twitter account to stand up for conservative principles and confront liberal hypocrisy, was suspended from Twitter and locked-out of his account for the second time in less than a year.

The actor was suspended last September after he posted what appeared to be a satirical meme that made fun of so-called soy boys, i.e., limp-wristed, mostly liberal men devoid of testosterone, confidence and really everything else that makes a man a man.

Twitter vowed to reverse the suspension only if he deleted the offending tweet at the time. The actor refused on the grounds that the social media giant’s demand was tantamount to censorship.

Woods eventually emerged from Twitter jail two weeks later after the social media platform intervened in response to backlash and deleted the actor’s offending tweet for him.

The actor’s latest offending tweet was nothing but a “Game of Thrones” quote reportedly written in response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s exoneration of President Donald Trump:

President Trump’s tweets coincided with the unprecedented banning Thursday by Facebook of several notable conservative personalities, including Paul Joseph Watson, who the social media network and its left-wing media allies falsely described as a “right-wing extremist.”

Though Watson works for InfoWars founder Alex Jones, he runs his own website and YouTube channel, and has long been considered a voice of intelligent commentary and analysis given his willingness to buck the establishment’s preferred narrative and speak truthfully about current events.

The other conservatives included in FB’s ban are Laura Loomer and Milo Yiannopoulos. They too were smeared as “right-wing extremists.” To seemingly try and appease conservatives, Facebook also banned actual extremist — far-left extremist, to be exact — Louis Farrakhan.

Unlike Watson, Loomer and Yiannopoulos, Farrakhan has a history of promoting violence and rampant anti-Semitism. He even ranted on social media about “Satanic Jews.” last year.

There’s no equivalence whatsoever between Watson/Loomer/Yiannopoulos and Farrakhan except for one thing: The media has incorrectly described all four as “far-right extremists.”

Case in point via CNN, which has a history of spreading fake news:

To be clear, Watson/Loomer/Yiannopoulos aren’t extremists. Farrakhan meanwhile is a far-left extremist.

In a tweet posted Friday morning, the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. also addressed social media’s continued “purge” of conservative voices under the guise of removing extremism.

“The purposeful & calculated silencing of conservatives by @facebook & the rest of the Big Tech monopoly men should terrify everyone, ” he wrote. “It appears they’re taking their censorship campaign to the next level. Ask yourself, how long before they come to purge you? We must fight back.”

And in his monologue Friday evening, Fox News host Tucker Carlson warned that Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, is essentially “prescribing which political opinions you’re allowed to have” and “which conversations all of us in this country can have about America.”

“Keep in mind that nobody voted for Mark Zuckerberg,” the FNC host added. “He is 34 years old. He is completely cut off from reality. He is worth $72 billion. Yet, he can single-handedly make the First Amendment irrelevant after 250 years.”

Carlson also addressed the left-wing media’s approval of the ban.

“Here is the most amazing thing of all,” he said. “The media thinks that is great. Journalists are supposed to defend free speech. You would think that is their job since they make a living from it.”

Yet so-called “journalists” responded to FB’s ban with glee.

Listen to some of the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” commentary below:

The most glaring part of Facebook’s ban is who it didn’t include. Various terrorist groups and far-left militias still remain active on Facebook, including Hamas and Nezbollah.

“We have documented numerous far-left extremist groups that actively use Facebook and other social media platforms to coordinate offline violence and criminal activity, and in many cases they use those same platforms to brag about their extremist activities after the fact,” the watchdog group Far Left Watch noted in a statement on Friday to Breitbart.

Several examples were posted to Twitter:
