It appears Twitter has officially declared war on the United States government …
Fresh off of censoring White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing a damning New York Post article about Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, the far-left social media network has now censored U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark A. Morgan.
On Wednesday, Morgan posted tweets celebrating the success of the Trump administration’s gradually expanding border wall.
One of the tweets he posted read as follows: “@CBP & USACEHQ continue to build new wall every day. Every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators, and drugs from entering our country. It’s a fact, walls work.”
View a screenshot of the since-locked tweet below:
In an interview with The Federalist, the CBP director said Wednesday that his account was locked after he posted the tweet on the grounds that it violated the social media platforms’ dubious, widely criticized and grossly unequal “hateful conduct” policy.
“You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease,” Twitter reportedly wrote to the commissioner.
It’s not clear how Morgan violated the policy. His tweet simply celebrated the U.S. government’s fight against the gang members, murderers, sexual predators, and drugs that the evidence makes clear do make it across the border.
“If you look at the tweet in question again, every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, and pedophiles from entering our country. It’s just a fact,” Morgan stated to The Federalist.
“Twitter, Morgan said, blocked the post anyway and reprimanded the commissioner without consulting with the Department of Homeland Security to discuss the efficacy of the border wall stopping criminals from illegally entering the country,” The Federalist reported.
Morgan believes his suspension was motivated by politics, namely the left-wing politics that falsely states that every illegal alien is a good person.
“I’m sure somebody on that Twitter team has heard that everyone that illegally enters are just good people looking for a better way of life,” he said.
“The American people ultimately don’t get to hear the truth because someone at Twitter, based on their own ideology, pushed a button to prevent the truth from coming out.”
The truth is that a notable percentage of illegal aliens are criminals ranging from child molesters to rapists, killers, drug dealers, gang members, cartel members, etc. This is an indisputable fact backed by data.
It’s also an indisputable fact that the construction of a border wall along the southern U.S. border has coincided with a reduction in border crossings.
“The wall, which DHS reported is on track to reach 450 miles of construction by the year’s end under the Trump administration, has indeed been working by forcing border-crossers to ports of entry, where agents are better equipped to catch criminals and process those wishing to enter legally. Border Patrol encounters with illegal migrants have dropped more than 50 percent since 2019 as the wall deters aliens from risking the trip,” The Federalist notes.
But do facts and data matter to Twitter and its founder, CEO Jack Dorsey?
The irony is that Morgan’s suspension happened on the same day that Dorsey, who recently donated $10 million to an organization launched by far-left zealot Ibram X. Kendi, testified to the U.S. Senate about the social media network’s censorship.
(1/2) While @jack was ‘explaining’ Twitter #censorship to the Senate, Twitter was blocking @CBPMarkMorgan! Why? B/c he posted THE TRUTH, that @CBP’s Wall helps stop gang members, murderers, sex predators & drugs from getting into America. The other pics prove @CBPMarkMorgan right pic.twitter.com/5ndjKP1LEK

While testifying, Dorsey was asked to explain why he refuses to censor Iranian Ayatollah Khameni, who’s repeatedly used Twitter to post extremely hateful remarks about Jews and to also deny the Holocaust, an event that led to the eradication of millions of Jews.
In response, he said the demonstrably hateful tweets by Khameni don’t violate the social media network’s policies on so-called misinformation.

What about Twitter’s “hateful conduct” policy, i.e.,the same policy that was used to censor a member of the U.S. government?
Sadly, these sorts of double standards have become a staple on Twitter, which over the past few years has transformed into a left-wing echo chamber.
“The Center’s analysis finds that just 10% of users produced 92% of all tweets from U.S. adults since last November, and that 69% of these highly prolific users identify as Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents,” the Pew Research Center noted in a recent study.
And so because it’s become a hotbed of left-wing thought and left-wing extremism, it seems as if thoughts/tweets that are conducive to liberal thinking are left untouched, while thoughts/tweets that are conducive to conservative thinking are targeted.
Even when the thoughts/tweets that are conducive to liberal thinking predictably contain unhinged rhetoric and violent threats, not to mention outright lies:
1) I’d note a curious double-standard, namely that @Twitter hasn’t slapped a warning label on the partisans/media outlets that falsely claimed WSJ news side had “debunked” the WSJ edit side on the Hunter Biden/China story.

Absolutely pathetic double standards from Twitter
The former Prime Minister of Malaysia, with 1.3 million followers, says “Muslims have the right to be angry and to kill millions of French people” yet they say it is “in the public interest for it to remain accessible” 😩 pic.twitter.com/ZwhKMk8QsQ

I hope the Senate asks this same question of @Jack Dorsey that I asked of @Twitter this July at the Knesset, about their double standards of flagging @realDonaldTrump, but turning backs to @khamenei_ir calling for genocide against Israel and violence against Americans. https://t.co/ZdUBai4e4L
