DOUBLE STANDARD: Why hasn't Twitter banned Antifa for threats made against Ted Cruz?



That was Washington D.C. ANTIFA harassing Ted Cruz and his wife as they tried to have a date night in an upscale D.C. restaurant. The group followed the Cruz's into the building, surrounded them, yelled in their faces and even surrounded their table. ANTIFA filmed the entire thing as one of their members badgered Senator Cruz with a barrage of ridiculous questions about Brett Kavanaugh. The couple eventually had to flee the restaurant.

ANTIFA was very proud of themselves. They, of course, immediately took to Twitter, claiming the entire operation in a long tweet thread which included video of the entire event. They concluded it with this:

This is a message to Ted Cruz, Bret Kavanaugh, Donald Trump and the rest of the racist, sexist, transphobic, and homophobic right-wing scum: You are not safe. We will find you.

So to recap, ANTIFA tracked down a public figure in a public place, harassed him, yelled at both Cruz and his wife, and then used the Twitter platform to make it go viral and added in a threat to boot.

You know, we've been asking for Twitter to show us some kind of standard that users can look at to know what is or isn't a suspendable or bannable offense on their platform. It appeared we finally got that when they banned Alex Jones. When Jones was banned, Twitter claimed that he had engaged in targeted harassment when he cornered CNN reporter Oliver Darcy.

They stated:

Tweets designed to threaten, belittle, demean and silence individuals have no place on this platform.

Here's a serious question for the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey. How is what ANTIFA just did to Senator Cruz and his wife any different at all to what you banned Alex Jones for? They targeted two people at a public space, harassed them, belittled, demeaned and tried to silence them. They even went a step further and added in an actual threat. This is miles worse than what Alex Jones did to Oliver Darcy. As of this morning, the Washington D.C. ANTIFA Twitter account (@SmashRacismDC) is still active.

Here's another question, but this one's to Silicon Valley or maybe to that young dreamer who's starting a tech company out of their garage. The free market is ripe to completely dethrone the social media landscape. Found a company on the basis of freedom and free speech. It's time Twitter and Facebook were pushed off their pedestal.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
