Twitter has made it clear with its recent suspension of Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) that liberal insanity has been taken to a whole new level. Of all the offensive things that can be posted on the platform, only an innocent family photo was deemed “graphic violence” and worthy of censoring by remnant Twitter liberal employees.
In what can only be described as a liberal-induced bout of insanity, Twitter recently suspended the account of Republican Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) for what they referred to as displaying “graphic violence” in his profile picture. It appears the ‘graphic image’ used by Senator Daines is something far more benign that one would imagine—a picture of him with his wife and an antelope they killed on a hunting trip.
We Love Trump Reports. Senator Steve Daines (R-MT)’s Twitter account has been suspended for violating the company’s policy against “graphic violence” in profile pictures. And what was the ‘graphic image?’ Simply it was a picture of Daines posing with his wife and an antelope they killed on a hunting trip
Twitter claimed that this image violated its rules. Specifically, for: “Violating our rules against graphic violence or adult content in profile images.”
Rachel Dumke tweeted “.@SteveDaines’ twitter account was locked last night for displaying “graphic violence” in his profile picture. Because going hunting with your wife is apparently against @Twitter rules now. What a joke.”
In the post a photo of Senator Daines phone was shared explaining why his account was suspended, and demanded that he delete the content from his profile.
However Twitter reinstated Daines’ account shortly after the suspension.
Elon Musk personally approached Daines to resolve the issue, according to Daines.
In a statement issued from Senator Daines it stated “I am grateful Elon Musk reached out to me to resolve this issue and am glad that he recognizes that free speech is a bedrock of our country, and acted quickly to reinstate my Twitter account after being made aware of its suspension.”
Elon Musk tweeted “This is being fixed. Policy against showing blood in profile pic is being amended to “clearly showing blood without clicking on the profile pic”.The intent is to avoid people being forced to see gruesome profile pics.”
Elon Musk continued in an additional tweet stating “Going forward, Twitter will be broadly accepting of different values, rather than trying to impose its own specific values on the world,”
This is just another glaring example of leftists using any excuse to cancel anyone on the right. More than likely multiple people reported the image as graphic, or some other form of report to twitter that flagged it for removal by the systems algorithm, and whoever had to do the review clicked the button to suspend. But hunting is a long tradition here in America, and one that many many households cherish, and what many people still use as a primary food source for their families. Just because some loony liberal wants to end the second amendment, and cancel hunting does not give them the right to silence Americans who still hunt, and use firearms. Thank you to Elon Musk for instantly correcting this issue, but safeguards need to be put in place in the future, so the attacks on our traditions do not continue.
