Twitter Censorship? Site Blocks Video From Republican Over 'Inflammatory' Abortion Comments

The video, which can still be seen in Blackburn's Twitter feed, was part of her recently-launched bid to succeed Sen.

In the ad, Blackburn says she "stopped the sale of baby body parts" from abortions by defunding Planned Parenthood - a false claim.

Twitter responded swiftly by pulling the ad over the statement because, in their words, it contains an "inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction". The decision does not prevent the original video from being posted by Blackburn and others on Twitter. Bob Corker, who is retiring. Liberals applaud Twitter for shutting down lies and hate speech while Deplorables stoke their persecution complexes to a white heat, further fueling their mistrust of "elites" from Silicon Valley to the CNN newsroom.

Although I am absolutely not writing to make any sort of case for or against abortion, it is worth mentioning that this is not Twitter's first dust-up with the pro-life movement.

She also chaired a House panel investigating the use of fetal tissue for research following the 2015 release of a series of undercover videos targeting Planned Parenthood. A Twitter representative told Blackburn's team that in order to promote it again, she'd have to remove this "inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction".

It was the first postseason win for Boston since the 2013 World Series Game 6, after previous year being swept by Cleveland. Price entered the game after another former Tiger, Doug Fister , struggled in his first start of the postseason.

Providing legal tissue to researchers is legal if no profit is made, and congressional investigations found no evidence of the organization making money off of the practice.

Blackburn tweeted for her followers to join her in "standing up to Silicon Valley", by retweeting the ad.

"Blackburn tweeted that "@Twitter shut down our video ad, claiming it's 'inflammatory & 'negative.'" The video is blanketing Twitter and social media now, but Twitter has exclusively blocked the ability to pay to promote the advertising campaign.

Blackburn alleges in a Monday fundraising email that she is being censored by Twitter.

In the video, Blackburn had said: "I'm 100% pro-life". Sadly, Twitter and their fellow apologists for Planned Parenthood would prefer that people not be exposed to the truth about the evil realities of abortion. Threatening Daleiden with jail time, suppressing the videos, and engaging in all-out harassment of pro-life activists, supporters of Planned Parenthood have refused to acknowledge any wrongdoing on the part of the abortion provider.
