NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s Senate campaign announcement ad is being blocked by Twitter over a statement the abortion rights opponent makes about the sale of fetal tissue for medical research.

Blackburn in the ad boasts that she “stopped the sale of baby body parts.” Twitter found that statement to be inflammatory and “likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.”

Mentioning it causes the negative reaction. Actually doing it, however, is cause for celebration on the part of the left and the murderous media types who cover for them.

“likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.”

The good people of this country need to start having “negative re3actions” when the Democrat Party tries to speak.

Truth: can’t have any of that. Too controversial.

Wasn’t there an alternative to Twitter that was making headway?

But allowing abortions to go on unchallenged doesn’t cause a negative reaction?

Where is the common sense a three year old is born with?

It’s missing here.

Democrats and pro-death Republicans (mainly in the northeast) serve their master Satan...it’s as simple as that.

Google, Twitter, Facebook — dangerous companies who want to control what information is available to the American public. In other words, only Leftist agenda information is allowed. Folks better wake up.

There is no “Twitter” doing anything. It is individual left fascists doing these things to suppress speech they don’t like. They have names. And addresses and should not be able to hide behind anonymity.

Only negative reactions by communists concern these communists.

Time to hit them with a Federal Sledgehammer. Depriving a Senator of the ability to advertise a political message I think is a violation of the Federal Election Commission rules.

Candidates for Federal office can put on anything they d@mn well please as an campaign advertisement and I believe it is required by law that it cannot be rejected on the basis of content.

I think Twitter broke the law, and it needs to be prosecuted.

"Gab." And they are trying to censor that too. I just saw something a week ago where "Gab" was informed their website would no longer be hosted.

It's way past time conservatives owned some internet infrastructure.

We need to wake up and start launching nuclear strikes against these fascist companies. We need to be hammering them with the Federal government for violating anti-trust laws, for violating freedom of speech rights, and for anything else that promises to bankrupt and bring to heel these out of control fascist organizations.

We need to be setting about engineering the destruction of these evil companies. They need to be destroyed.
