Cancel Culture Mob Furious Because They Just Got Censored Too…You Reap What You Sow
Earlier this week liberals were thrilled when Twitter and Facebook censored part of President Trump’s interview on Fox and Friends.
Facebook and Twitter took action against Trump for statement that children are “almost immune” from COVID-19. The platforms said he violated policies on misinformation. https://t.co/ktYaZaBu4M

What the cancel mob didn’t realize was that they would be “canceled” too. Media figures and the DNC that attacked the President ended up getting censored as well.
The liberal reporter for VOX Aaron Rupar was censored by twitter as for sharing the video and commenting on it.
This is absolutely nuts, @TwitterSupport. My account was locked for quoting and fact-checking Trump, and I was forced to delete this tweet. Why am I getting punished for shining a light on the president’s falsehoods? pic.twitter.com/UtbsGBe3cd

He wasn’t the only one, twitter also censored the DNC.
#BREAK The DNC was temporarily stopped by Twitter from tweeting through its rapid response @DNCWarRoom account this morning after the DNC attempted to call out President Trump’s false claims about children and Covid-19 immunity.

Other liberals were shocked to find out they were being censored as well.

Darcy basically says that only Trump, not liberals should be censored.
A bit silly though if the purpose of posting the video is to fact-check the President. https://t.co/3AIZ6BO800

But it wasn’t just the video.
Leftists are furious when a Black Lives Matter cartoonist content was removed from newspapers because it was deemed “offensive.”
Here it is, the comic that launched 1000 angry responses. Please clap pic.twitter.com/Cy42h8mlMB

One of the newspapers that pulled the cartoon was the incredibly liberal “The Oregonian” below was one of the complaints:
Q: (Today’s comic) was offensive on SEVERAL levels. The scene is a black woman wearing an I can’t breathe T-shirt and wearing a mask. The other person in the scene is a white woman saying if you can’t breathe take off that silly mask. They are pushing carts, so they are obviously in a store of some type. I know there’s controversy about wearing masks, but this is a state requirement not a recommendation! So this is ridiculous. Compound that with the much more egregious attitude of the white woman minimizing the “I can’t breathe” statement and turning this Black Lives Matter statement into something to be seen in a comic strip. (It) is Indefensible!”
The liberal publication Jezebel was up in arms and noted that the cartoonist Bianca Xunise is one of only three African-American cartoonists that is syndicated. The last line was hilarious, Jezebel writer Shannon Melero claimed, “This is probably why millennials are trying to kill newspapers.”
The comic, which was provided by Six Chix, a rotating team of creators that provides comics for over 120 newspapers, was deemed offensive by some newspapers with one newspaper running an apology in place of Six Chix’s comic that week. Instead of explaining to their readership the nuance behind the comic and making a path for dialogue, many papers that syndicate Six Chix are running away from something that might make their white audiences uncomfortable.
