Don Jr. Makes GREAT POINT About Democrat Hypocrisy on Felons Voting

Published

on

 On Tuesday, April 23, 2019, Donald Trump Jr. criticized 2020 Democratic presidential candidates for being “more concerned” about giving more rights to felons than law-abiding gun owners.

On Twitter, Trump Jr. questioned the Democrats’ logic, “What does it say about the modern-day Democrat Party that @BernieSanders and @KamalaHarris seem more concerned about giving mass murderers like the Boston Marathon Bomber voting rights, than protecting the civil rights of law abiding American citizens who legally own guns?”

The son of the sitting president was referencing the arguments that Senators Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris made at CNN town hall meetings on Monday.

The Vermont Senator said that all felons should have the right to vote while in prison. Above all, domestic terrorists like the Boston Marathon bomber.

Specifically, the Senator asserted that “I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy.”

Sanders added, “Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope. … I do believe that even if they are in jail, they’re paying their price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

In the same token, Harris stressed the need to have the “formerly incarcerated” keep their right to vote.

Harris did not give a firm answer about whether current felons should have that right.

The California Senator said, “I think we should have that conversation.”

BLP has reported that both Sanders and Harris support stricter gun laws.

While mass incarceration has become a huge issue in the 2020 elections, Democrats have exploited the topic to even cover violent felons.

At this point, Democratic frontrunners appear to be more concerned about the rights of violent felons rather than law-abiding gun owners.

A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter

Published

on

On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet

The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.

Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”

Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”

But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”

Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.

Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.

Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.

BLP previously reported on Big Tech attacking pro-gun groups as part of their plan to muzzle any form of right-wing expression.

As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.
