President Donald Trump in finally standing up for Conservatives on social media.
On May 2, 2019 conservative commentators such as Alex Jones, Infowars, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos were banned from Facebook and Instagram.
These individuals have been some of the loudest and most effective advocates for President Trump’s America first principles.
However, the censors in Silicon Valley weren’t having it.
And they could also count on gatekeeping conservatives like Cabot Phillips to defend this politically witch hunt.
BLP’s Tom Pappert covered Phillips’ establishment defense of Silicon Valley’s blatant political agenda.
Reminder for my conservative friends tonight:
Private companies have every right to deny you access to their platform. Because it's their platform. You don't have a constitutional right to a Facebook or Twitter account.

Even seasoned Never Trumper Erick Erickson came out in defense of Big Tech’s latest purge calling Jones, Watson, and Loomer “reactionaries.”
However, President Trump is now laying down the hammer in a series of posts on social media.
Trump has vowed to continued monitoring the censorship of American citizens on social media platforms.
I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms. This is the United States of…
Trump came to the defense of African American commentators Diamond & Silk claiming that they “have been treated so horribly by Facebook.” He also acknowledged that it’s getting “worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!”
The wonderful Diamond and Silk have been treated so horribly by Facebook. They work so hard and what has been done to them is very sad – and we’re looking into. It’s getting worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!

Trump also expressed his shock at Paul Joseph Watson being banned from Facebook and James Woods being banned from Twitter.
So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook! https://t.co/eHX3Z5CMXb

With Senators like Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz leading the push in the Senate to investigate Big Tech’s influence on politics, social media censorship is set to be one of the most crucial issues during the 2020 elections.
New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu Vetoes Red Flag Gun Confiscation Order
On August 7, 2020, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu vetoed a “red flag” law proposal.
This bill would have allegedly facilitated the temporary confiscation of firearms without due process for people who are perceived to be a risk to themselves or other individuals.
Sununu cited constitutional concerns for his veto. The New Hampshire Governor’s veto of the red flag bill was a microcosm of a tense session of the New Hampshire General Court.
Democrats were able to pass House Bill 687, which would have established a red flag law. Under this law, family members could file a petition to a court to disarm an individual who is viewed as a threat to themselves or others. A complete affront to due process, the gun owner would only then be allowed to fight the action in court.
Second Amendment supporters have adamantly opposed this kind of legislation. They are of the opinion that it infringes on the right to bear arms and the right to a fair trial. Sununu was in agreement, and in his veto message he stated that the bill “goes too far and would weaken the constitutional rights of law-abiding New Hampshire citizens,” while he mentioned how the second, fourth, fifth, sixth, and 14th amendments of the U.S. Constitution would be in jeopardy if this bill was passed.
“I will continue to prioritize suicide prevention and mental health as there is much work yet to be done in New Hampshire, but that work cannot come at the expense of the constitutional rights of our citizens,” Sununu wrote.
New Hampshire is one of the more pro-gun states in the country, with a ranking of 17th place according to Guns & Ammo’s Best States for Gun Owners rankings.
For once, a Republican Governor stood up against the anti-gun mob and rejected a blatantly anti-Second Amendment bill. More Republicans should follow suit by categorically rejecting the pet projects of the radical Left.
