So now that is a threat too? This is a slippery slope we are on now. Liberals and progressives generally always tried to stifle conservative speech. This proves it. We should all be scared of this. This is no better than the communists and what China does. You don't like Trump I get it I don't much like him either. But to shut down dissenting opinion because you don't like it is a real problem.
Thanks to Facebook's "related interests" algorithm that creates echo chambers left and right, the "Walk away" group was most likely a direct pipeline toward more extreme pro-Trump-, QAnon-, and eventually Treasonous-White-Mob-Storming-the-Capitol-Organizer-groups.
In the end, Facebook and Twitter can ban whoever they want and I guess bad luck that most educated people who are able to build these tech firms tend to be rather on the left.
Or in other words, think of Facebook/Twitter as a Christian bakery and of Trump/QAnon/Walk away groups as a gay couple trying to buy a wedding cake.
