Whatever You Think of Trump’s Bans – It’s Probably Too Simplistic

In the wake of Donald Trump being finally banned by Twitter and Facebook, people seem to be filing into two camps: either the two social media giants are violating Donald Trump’s first amendment rights or the companies are private companies and thus can ban whomever they want. Our stances on what may or may not be done is driven mainly by our opinion of Donald Trump and will likely flip if our opinion flips of whomever else is banned. However, both of these views share one thing in common: they are overly simplistic.

Donald Trump May Be Guilty of Treason in Capitol Hill Putsch

As discussed before, his followers had waged war on the United States by attacking the Capitol to overthrow the United States government and install Trump as a dictator rather than Joe Biden as president, being the constitutionally established winner of the election, taking power on January 20. I didn’t vote for Joe Biden; I’ve never once voted for the winner of the presidential election in my life after having voted in each election since 2000.

Treason at the Capitol: Trump Must Be Removed Now

The day started out as Trumpers, at the urging of the President, gathered in front of the Capitol. Around 1 pm EST, the crowd started bumrushing toward the doors, scaling the walls, etc to get into the Capitol and some succeeded around 90 minutes later. Once this started, the “protest” ceased to be lawful or constitutionally protected as it ceased to have any pretext of being peaceful. Police treated the Trump supporters with relative kid gloves, whereas a left wing protest would have seen random violence from the police much earlier and it was only in June that Donald Trump, himself, ordered peaceful protesters be assaulted with tear gas and rubber bullets so that he could walk across the street to take an inappropriate photo op. Senators and Representatives were rushed out of the chambers to shelter in place in their offices while threats of pipe bombs started to show up. Tear gas filled the Senate side of the lobby, a Trump supporter named Ashli Babbit was shot and later died – we do not yet know for sure whether she was shot by another Trump supporter or Capitol police – Trumpers ransacked the chambers and offices while one man declared Donald Trump to have been reelected and Jake Angeli, AKA “The QAnon Shaman,” rambled through notably wearing a fur headdress with bull’s horns.
