Twitter temporarily suspended part of Donald Trump Jr.’s account after he shared a video of doctors talking about hydroxychloroquine.
A couple of serious problems here.
People are so afraid to say Trump might have been right about hydroxychloroquine that they’d rather people die of Covid than let the drug be established as a treatment.
And secondly, Twitter, with its aching desire to stay politically correct and its leftist bias, is censoring legitimate speech. It is a monopoly and should suffer the consequences. It has too much power over the discourse.
In a statement, Trump Jr. spokesman Andrew Surabian said:
Twitter suspending Don Jr. for sharing a viral video of medical professionals discussing their views on Hydroxychloroquine is further proof that Big Tech is intent on killing free expression online and is another instance of them committing election interference to stifle Republican voices.
While there is indeed much disagreement in the medical community about the efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine in treating coronavirus, there have been studies reported on by ‘mainstream’ outlets like CNN, suggesting that it may in fact be an effective treatment. Those pretending otherwise are lying for political reasons.
Big Tech is the biggest threat to free expression in America today & they're continuing to engage in open election interference – full stop. pic.twitter.com/7dJbauq43O
