(Natural News) As of this writing, Twitter has still not responded to the viral spread of a Democrat-led conspiracy theory and bald-faced lie alleging that President Donald Trump is locking up and removing U.S. Postal Service (USPS) mailboxes to prevent people from mailing in their ballots for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. But when it comes to tweets from the president about the very real threat of mail-in ballot voter fraud, Twitter was right on it in selectively censoring him with a “fact-check.”
Multiple prominent figures, including former NBA star and vocal leftist Rex Chapman, continue to spread lies and misinformation on Twitter about mailbox-gate, replete with old photos of locked-up mailboxes that have nothing to do with anything currently going on in America. And yet Twitter has thus far done absolutely nothing to stop this blatant interference with the election, once again revealing its liberal bias.
“Burbank, California: In your entire life have you ever seen a LOCKED mailbox at the USPS? Now you have,” Chapman tweeted alongside a photo of a USPS mailbox from 2016 that was sealed up due to repeated bouts of vandalism. “A disgrace and immediate threat to American democracy. Shame on them. Shame on the GOP. Where are you @senatemajldr?”
In another similar erroneous tweet containing a photo of a locked-up mailbox, a leftist Twitter user captioned it as having been recently captured in Washington, D.C., the implication being that Trump or someone in his administration personally booted it up to prevent people from dropping in their ballots. The truth, however, is that the image came from Seattle where the mailbox had to be locked up due to ongoing riots by Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa terrorists.
“If you’re going to conspiracy theory, make sure you’re getting your cities right,” joked one user in response to this ridiculous misinformation tweet, which is still being spread on Twitter without any fact-checks or other clarifications about its falseness.
Why won’t Republicans strip Twitter of its Section 230 immunity protections?
If Twitter is genuinely concerned about election interference in the leadup to voting day this fall, then why is the company allowing such lies to persist? This mailbox conspiracy theory is both ridiculous and easily debunked, and truly embodies the low road that Democrats like Michelle Obama claim the Left never takes, which is clearly also a lie.
Over the past several months, Twitter has censored President Trump, Breitbart News, Fox News, Donald Trump Jr., and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, among others. These conservative-leaning individuals and entities have repeatedly been told that the information they share is “questionable” or “false,” and thus must be censored to avoid spreading “confusion” and “misinformation.”
But when it comes to Democrats spreading around a baseless conspiracy theory about Trump sending in tractor trailers to rip up blue mailboxes, which is what Sleepy Joe Biden claimed in a recent misinformation tweet that is also still up on his page, Twitter looks away and pretends like nothing is happening.
Thus far, Twitter has “taken no action against a demonstrably false, conspiracy theory-fueled panic about USPS mailboxes being locked, a claim that could cause panic and change voter behavior during an election year,” writes Allum Bokhari for Breitbart News.
All of this is on congressional Republicans, by the way, which still have not taken action against Big Tech companies like Twitter to strip them of the Section 230 immunity protections they unjustly have as part of the outdated Communications Decency Act.
Republicans have had years to fix this problem, and yet have continued to only talk about it while doing absolutely nothing. Now, America is having to eat the rotten fruit of Silicon Valley’s one-sided censorship as we near one of the most critical elections in our nation’s history.
