Hegseth: If Twitter bans me, they’ll ban anyone
‘Fox & Friends’ weekend co-host Pete Hegseth on Twitter suspending his account.
Fox News host Pete Hegseth reacted to being banned from Twitter after posting part of the Pensacola, Fla., attacker’s manifesto, including a portion that gave radical Islam as a motive.
Last week, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a Saudi aviation student, killed three people at Naval Air Station Pensacola, 20 miles east of the Alabama state line.
On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson on Monday said Hegseth was suspended for purportedly “violating company rules against threatening or promoting terrorism.”
Hegseth said he doesn’t understand that explanation, in that he was just sharing what the attacker had written in his manifesto.
If you were still on the fence about the loyalties of Fox News management before now, maybe this will tell you what you need to know.
Hegseth: "If we live in a country where we can’t know why people attack us and why they did it, why are we here?"
There is an internet “rule” I saw mentioned at another forum which says that anyone who posts like an enemy of America may be treated like an enemy of America, despite their denials or other evidence they might present.
This smacks of the UK and EU anti-hate speech laws which protects Jihadists and their activities from being known by their intended prey.
And it gives us a better context to understand what the College student led (Were they REALLY led by students or Jihadists???) protests and calls FOR censorship were actually trying to achieve a couple years ago.
I have an account under one of my nom de plumes, but only when I need to access something I cant get elsewhere or as easily or quickly.
I cant answer your question from personal knowledge, but I believe Hegseth would be accurate and responsible in what he would say in this matter, and it CERTAINLY would be in character with how I perceive the media.
Anti Christian. Anti-American. Anti-Trump. Anti-Conservative. Anti-Fox News. (Although, as Fox News is no longer reliably Right, Twitter may be trying to divide and separate the Conservatives at FNC from the sell out Leftists employed there.)
Well that makes no sense. Twitter has a policy to not advance the goals of Islamic extremists and their terrorist goals. Not even the terrorist can post their agendas on Twitter, so why would they allow Pete to do so?
It’s not social media’s responsibility to educate Americans on anything. They have a policy not to aid terrorists in the dissemination of their propaganda, which is not only their right, it’s common sense. Let Fox News peddle extremists ideology on fox and friends if they wish to.
