Trump Was Censored and Rightly So

In recent years, the word, “censorship” has become a pejorative term and has consequently lost its real meaning and value when used and digested appropriately

Originalism

On most days, the Anti-Ban crowd are evangelists for the judicial principle of, “originalism” — the conservative judicial philosophy that “the words in documents and especially the U.S. Constitution should be interpreted as they were understood at the time they were written.”

Personal Responsibility

The two groups who are most uniformly against Trump’s banishment from the Twitterverse are: far-right Republicans and Libertarians. And if there is one clear unifying thread that runs through those two groups it is the centrality of “personal responsibility” to their political ideologies.

What about [other person who should be banned from Twitter]?

Russian opposition leader, politician, and anti-corruption activist, Alexei Navalny’s recent Twitter thread slamming Twitter’s censorship of President Trump was widely shared by the Anti-Ban crowd.
