Foreign Enemies Take Advantage of Dems

America’s reputation abroad is no longer as a leader becuase of Dems new rhetoric.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel criticized Twitter’s decision to permanently ban President Donald Trump from the platform, calling the action “problematic.”

Merkel delivered her thoughts on Trump’s ban through her spokesman, Steffen Seibert, on Monday. Seibert told reporters that Twitter’s decision potentially undermined the “fundamental right” to freedom of speech.

Merkel’s spokesman said that social media companies “bear great responsibility for political communication not being poisoned by hatred, by lies and by incitement to violence” and that such companies should take steps to against such communication, such as flagging messages, according to The Associated Press. He added, however, that the right to freedom of opinion is of “elementary significance.”

“This fundamental right can be intervened in, but according to the law and within the framework defined by legislators — not according to a decision by the management of social media platforms,” Seibert said. “Seen from this angle, the chancellor considers it problematic that the accounts of the U.S. president have now been permanently blocked.”

Twitter’s decision to ban the president of the United States has been criticized by other world leaders, such as Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

“I don’t like anybody being censored or taking away from the right to post a message on Twitter or Face(book). I don’t agree with that, I don’t accept that,” López Obrador said on Thursday.

“How can you censor someone: ‘Let’s see, I, as the judge of the Holy Inquisition, will punish you because I think what you’re saying is harmful,’” he added. “Where is the law, where is the regulation, what are the norms? This is an issue of government, this is not an issue for private companies.”

Mexico’s presidential spokesman, Jesús Ramírez, added to the Mexican president’s comments in a post on social media, saying, “Facebook’s decision to silence the current leader of the United States calls for a debate on freedom of expression, the free exchange of information on the web, democracy and the role of the companies that administer (social) networks.”

Twitter banned the president Thursday following a Wednesday riot where pro-Trump rioters broke into the Capitol building to disrupt the counting of electors and certifying the 2020 presidential election for President-elect Joe Biden. Twitter justified its decision asserting that Trump’s personal account risked “further incitement of violence.”

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said in a statement. “In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action. Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.”

  1. THANK YOU ANGELA MERKEL, WISH OUR BRAINDEAD DEMOCRATS HAD SO MUCH SENSE. THEY HAVE NOT ACCOMPLISHED A THING IN 40 YEARS, JUST TRY TO MAKE AMERICA COMMUNISTIC AND NOW TO IMPEACH TRUMP AGAIN.
    WHY DO WE NEED A DEMOCRATIC PARTY?? THEY ARE SET TO DESTROYY OUR COUNTRY FROM WITHIN.

  2. If even half of the 85 million followers of President. Trump cancel their association with Twitter, they would be crippled, economically.

  3. Yet United States representatives talk of nothing but impeachment. They speak of insurrection, while inexcusable, nothing as to their part in it’s festering. I find it very disappointing that foreign nations have to point out to our very own representative the existence of free speech, you know the 1st amendment. The world not only knows but is now pointing out that the United States government does not represent the people or know the Constitution that they swore to uphold. The United States government is bought and paid for by many, just not “We the People”. Thank you foreign leaders. I also thank the government of Uganda for blocking Twitter. I would give my thoughts on the current US government but would likely get censored. Thanks again foreign leaders.

  4. I have never been afraid living in America, but now I am and it is the democrats who have caused this and they should be ashamed and all impeached for disregarding our constitution in so many ways and making it a double standard. They have the power because of the powers who fund them and that alone is so scary. They two are puppets just like we are and this needs to stop! At this point this country is lost, and no I will never support Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, or any of the dems or republican’s who have okayed this despicable and unAmerican act. They all should be held accountable for their actions against this country and those who voted for them to defend us, because they did not! And Big tech, Amazon, the media, and the Hollywood elites should also be held accountable and stripped of any and al their power! I was on twitter, no more, was on facebook, no more, did shop Amazon, no more I only hope all patriots who love this country will follow suit. This is the darkest day in this country, possibly the end to the republic and those of you who voted for this are responsible!

  5. Obstruction from the beginning of Trumps 2020 election. Now it’s al about doing whatever they possibly can to make sure they sweep 100 + million peoples votes in the trash can. Big problem.

  6. I totally agree ..We the People should be able to IMPEACH BIDEN OURSELVES If the Congress won’t do it
