I am well aware that twitter can do what they please but in this age to ban someone because of their political party (I was responding to a post that suggested this) is akin to taking away someone's right to speak on this medium IMO,
They banned him because he incited a riot and attempted a coup. Plenty of Republicans and Socialists and Communists and Democrats have social media accounts that have not been banned. Care to guess why?
He did not incite a riot. Did he actually say "storm the capitol"? No he did not. He did what you all have been preaching all summer with BLM and ANTIFA he said to march on the Capitol. By the way every republican condemned these actions. Certainly cannot say that on the democrats side for the summer of love where peoples businesses went up in flames and is still going on in Portland OR. I think for all concerned Trump needs to go. Only because he is such a lightning rod and he does bring a lot of this on himself. But I see a lot of things I don't like on your side of the fence. You think now that Biden is in everyone should play nice now? There is a lot of hatred on the right from everything from the Russia collusion to "hes not my president" starting from day one of Trump getting in office. They will not forget either. Biden has his work cut out for him. I have never seen a division like this in my lifetime. I don't think it will come together anytime soon.
Trump has, from day 1, fostered this very division and resentment. He has NEVER, not once, done any effort to assuage the political divide and growing tensions between the extreme right party he was leading and the rest of the mainstream political spectrum. Every single of his statement relating to the opposition has been made for the purpose of deflecting blame towards his political opponents or what he called the extreme left, or even more moderate Republicans who dared oppose him. Every single of these statements was inflammatory and of course based on lies.
Trump has thrived off this political and societal rift and has done everything he could to drive that wedge even deeper, so deep in fact that he was happy to call on his cult and brainwashed militia to forcefully overturn the government for him.
To now put the onus on the Democrats to reconciliate these wildly opposing factions after 4 years of blindly and faithfully supporting the guy who is responsible for most of it is hypocrisy to the highest degree.
The problem with many Trump supporters is that they don't seem to realize how much of an anomaly and abnormality Trump was and simply revert to ridiculous equivalences and comparisons with more normal aspect of political life when there is none. He was the closest the US ever had to a deranged populist dictator with a personality cult and actively tried to overturn the country's democratic system.
Fortunately, and contrary to what Trump has been doing, Biden has at least been pretty clear about his goal to calm the tempers and try to work towards being more conciliatory. Not it will be easy to fix the mess he is inheriting.
