Twitter suspends white nationalists as new rules take effect

Twitter Inc. suspended the accounts of several well-known white nationalists Monday after putting into place new rules on what it sees as abusive content.

The account of far-right group Britain First, which regularly posts inflammatory videos purporting to show Muslims engaged in acts of violence, was among the first to go dark. The individual accounts of two of its leaders, Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding, were also suspended.

    It was good while it lasted! The small elite group of people who have long controlled traditional media have seized control of social media and the internet. Alternative voices will be banned or drowned out so that they who rule over us (those who we are not allowed to criticize) – can promote THEIR narrative.

    President Trump would never have been elected if it were not for the loud alternative media voices in 2016. Trump needs to WAKE THE FUCK UP and stop this purge if he has any hopes of getting reelected in 2020. I wonder if Trump even realizes what is going on since he has stupidly surrounded himself with neocons and morons in the White House.

    Trump has 44 million followers. If they cancel his account, which they might, there will be hell to pay.
