HYPOCRISY: Here Are All The Democrats Who Have Called For Violence Against Conservatives But Have Not Been Banned From Twitter

Twitter announced over the weekend that it is permanently banning President Donald Trump from its platform citing “risks of further inciting violence” following the Capitol Hill chaos on January 6.

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the platform said on January 9.

Eagle-eyed watchers, however, slammed the platform for favoring Democrats as several clips of liberals calling for their supporters to physically confront Republicans and even warning of “civil unrest” during the term of President Trump remain visible on the social media.

The clips showed Democratic lawmakers, Senator Cory Booker, Senator Jon Tester, Rep. Maxine Waters, Rep. Ted Lieu, Joaquin Castro, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi all making comments suggesting violence or physical attacks against Republicans during the four-year administration of President Trump.

Critics and Trump supporters argue that contrary to the President’s account that has been suspended permanently for charges of “inciting violence,” the accounts of these Democratic personalities remain active — the videos in question, are also still being circulated around social media.

Rep.Waters, a fierce critic of President Trump, for example, called for her supporters to physically harass officials of the Trump administration during a rally in 2018.

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out, and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said then.

Rep. Lieu of California also warned President Trump during the same year of “widespread civil unrest” if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller, who at that time was looking into the Russian Collusion hoax put forward by Democrats.

“Rep. Ted Lieu Warns Trump: There Will Be ‘Widespread Civil Unrest’ If Mueller Is Fired,” the tweet read.

Sen. Booker was also caught in 2018 urging activists attending a National Conference on Ending Homelessness to “get up in the face of some congresspeople.”

“Before I end, that’s my call to action here. Please don’t just come here today and then go home,” the New Jersey senator said. “Go to the Hill today. Get up, and please get up in the face of some congresspeople.”

Other Democrats have also called for the same physical confrontation with President Trump, White House officials, or conservatives in general.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton noted how “you can’t be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.”

In 2019, Texas Rep. Castro said liberals would take to the streets and “fight [Trump] and challenge him in every way that we can in the Congress, in the courts, and in the streets and protests” when he responded to the President’s decision to declare a national emergency.

The same year, Sen. Tester said the way to beat President Trump in the election was to “punch him in the face.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has also been encouraging protests saying those calling for the end of the “unrest” should focus on its causes instead.

“If you are calling for an end to this unrest … but you are not calling for the end to the conditions that created the unrest, you are a hypocrite,” Ocasio-Cortez said in an earlier post.

Reports have also noted how she earlier backed anti-police riots in Brooklyn.

Last year, Speaker Pelosi also told a National Governors Association meeting that when a person is involved with politics “you have to be ready to take a punch, and you have to be ready to throw a punch.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar also commented in the wake of the death of George Floyd over the summer that the “anger is just” and the “anger is warranted” following destructive riots in Minneapolis.

Similarly, Democratic Michigan Rep. Cynthia Jones also blatantly urged her supporters to attack Trump supporters and “make them pay!

“So this is just a warning to you Trumpers, be careful. Walk lightly, we ain’t playing with you. Enough with the shenanigans, enough is enough. And for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it, do it right. Be in order. Make them pay!” the Democratic state lawmaker said.
