Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s reelection campaign learned Twitter locked their account after they showed far left activists “screaming obscenities” at the politician’s Kentucky home.
Yes, Twitter suspended the account for showing the public how hate-filled protesters were harassing McConnell.
I agree, it makes no sense.
“Last night, an angry left-wing mob of Amy McGrath supporters stormed Senator McConnell’s Louisville home screaming obscenities and hoping someone would ‘just stab the motherf***** in the heart,’ the now deleted tweet read, according to a screenshot.

As Politico reported:
McConnell’s campaign manager, Kevin Golden, confirmed the account was locked this morning “for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell.”
The group reportedly held “Massacre Mitch” signs as they protested.
“This is a problem with the speech police in America today,” Golden told Politico. “Twitter will allow the words ‘Massacre Mitch’ to trend nationally on their platform. But locks our account for posting actual threats against us.”
Since when do videos of crazy leftist protesters yelling profanity get censored from the internet? Oh, I know…it’s when a conservative posts them.
Twitter blocked the account on Wednesday claiming the video “violated the Twitter Rules.” Golden says they appealed the decision, but it was not overturned.
If there is a positive here, it’s that Twitter does know these far left protesters are crazy and violent and in need of a temporary stint in the social media giant’s timeout corner. But the negative is, unfortunately, that they only think that when someone of a different ideology is exposing this kind of leftist lunacy.
