Snapchat told Fox News that they are permanently banning Trump from their platform, claiming hate speech, inciting violence and more:
FOX NEWS – Following an indefinite suspension of President Trump’s account last week, Snapchat announced Wednesday that its decision is permanent.
“In the interest of public safety, and based on his attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech, and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account,” a Snapchat spokesperson told FOX News.
The social media platform said it had assessed “what long term action is in the best interest of our Snapchat community” following the riot at the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters on Jan. 6.
Snapchat first took action against President Trump in June when it stopped promoting the president’s account on its Discover platform, limiting its reach to subscribers and those who searched for him.
“We will not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice by giving them free promotion on Discover,” the company said at the time.
Since then, the platform repeatedly removed Trump’s content and sent dozens of warnings to the president and his team for violating its community guidelines and terms of service. The terms prohibit the spread of misinformation, hate speech, glorification or incitement of violence.
The decision for a permanent ban comes after similar moves by Facebook and Twitter last week.
You remember seeing those mobs of teens stomping and kicking a person when they were down on the ground, all of them joining in to try and harm the victim? That’s exactly what this feels like.
Twitter bans Trump, then Facebook, then Reddit, etc…and now we have Snapchat doing the same. And then poor old Parler got thrown on to the ground beside Trump and they are stomping and kicking it too, led by Amazon, Apple and Google.
It’s the liberal mob mentality at work here and it’s ugly.
