Twitter on Friday placed a warning on President Donald Trump’s post glorifying violence. The social media company said Mr. Trump violated its rules against glorifying violence when he tweeted about protests over the death of George Floyd, a black man executed in broad day light by a white cop with his hands in his pockets.

“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” Trump tweeted, referring to the protesters who are demanding that the officers involved in Floyd’s arrest be charged.

Not long after the tweet, Twitter added a public interest notice to the post, saying it had “taken action in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts, but have kept the tweet on Twitter because it is important that the public still be able to see the tweet given its relevance to ongoing matters of public importance.”

NBC noted that “with fires burning in Minneapolis during a third night of protests in the wake of the death of Floyd, Trump threatened to call in the National Guard, labeled the protesters “thugs” and said Mayor Jacob Frey had lost control over the city.”

President signed an executive order on Thursday asking federal regulators to revisit the 1996 law that protects websites from liability for what their users post, just days after Twitter added a fact-check label to a pair of Trump’s tweets for the first time earlier in the week.

  1. It’s said, “That the first casualty of war is the truth”, and the trith is US Governments top elites are at War with the American populace.
    US has been an expansionist nation since its founding and it has been through domestic militarization of citizenry and warfare as its primary means of growth both in territory and wealth.
    It is far more costly today to wage war on a full time basis as in past colonial expansions against weaker nations took mainly guns and men’s guts and the US being an extremely wealthy nation in resources the populace never realy noted dollar cost to themselves, that is not the case today.
    Today the US is ripping out the last of its resources bounties, the firms are low to no tax paying corporates of US and International firms and the revenues are of exports with a huge portion going into military expenditures, domestic investments in industry have been foreign arms contractors, automotive and high priced foreign made luxury goods.
    A permanent 40+percent live on below poverty level economic standards, another 20% live on month to month wages with some of lowest personal savings rate of any modern nation.
    To keep control of populace means lying to populace, while at same time increasing centralized planning to keep the major contributors and owners of 80% wealth intact, and ability of Government to borrow from foreign investors and those majors.
    US through its Petro dollar has such influence upon international banking that it’s primary means of warfare is theft of foreign assets which include Sovereign Nations gold and cash assets under so called embargo laws, with Venezuela being most flagrant as US seized all its international banking and in US Nationalized its refineries and distribution systems.
    The pandemic showed just how deliberately poorly equipped was Central and on down to local governments to look after welfare of its people and highlighted how shoddy was both civil and commercial infrastructure has become.
    68 % of American populace were deemed ” nonessential” told to go and stay at home, cure themselves as only Covid medicine was essential, and the people complied.
    Meanwhile the largest debt restructuring of financial and Industrial as well as cut backs on Federal staffing of what were now deemed non essential programs, in world history.
    Where as before pandemic trillions were being quietly shiftedvin order to keep US finance competitive on world stage trillions were openly poured out in hundreds of billions to those financials.
    This is not just US as European Central Banks are banding together offering loans to nations who when accepting them find top 10% get gravy and their people will be in permanent debt forever, and after Covid scare records their as if insolvency and societies will be right back to before loans.
    US has been one of worlds most highly censored nations beginning under President Regans total warfare concept of controlling public opinion through government programs was instituted.
    Then Clintons Executive Order that delayed all foreign News service feeds until after being reviewed and came computerized monitoring of every US citizen right on down to their electronic conversations.
    Welcome to formation of new unaccountable governments.
