Twitter has suspended the campaign account for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) after his social media team shared a video of left-wing protesters gathering outside the Senator's Kentucky home - with one activist calling for someone to "just stab the motherfucker in the heart."
"I just want him to have a stroke, that is all," the woman added. "One of those heart attacks where they can’t breathe, and they’re holding their chest and they fall backwards"
“He’s in there nursing his broken arm. He should have broken his raggedy, wrinkled-ass neck,” she said at one point in the video.
“Everybody needs to show up wherever this ho is at and make him just regret his fucking life, period,” she added.
At one point in the protest, a male protester commenting on McConnell’s recent injury said that he may have been the victim of a “voodoo doll” curse. -Daily Caller
Kevin Golden, McConnell's 2020 campaign manager noted that "Twitter will allow the words of ‘Massacre Mitch’ to trend nationally on their platform, but locks our account for posting actual threats against us."
Golden says that they appealed to Twitter, which stood by their decision, saying that the account will remain locked until they delete the video.
Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra was similarly locked out of his Twitter account for posting the video.
"Twitter asked me yesterday to delete this tweet," Saavedra recounted in a massive tweetstorm. "It showed a person allegedly calling for violence against Mitch McConnell. The person appears to be a BLM activist who has met with Elizabeth Warren."
Saavedra then pointed out several instances in which Twitter allowed content advocating violence against conservatives to trend;
They told me, in a private message, that they were going to remove the video contained in the tweet, which was embedded from someone else's account— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) August 7, 2019
They also asked me to delete my tweet, which was separate
My tweet was newsworthy and factually accurate
I said no

Back to convo w/Twitter:— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) August 7, 2019
They said that they were concerned about McConnell's safety, yet the Black Lives Activist / Warren supporter who called for McConnell's death is still allowed to have an account on Twitter
Keep in mind, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is a big BLM supporter
That far-left activist is a member of Louisville Democrat Mayor Greg Fischer's "Synergy Project," which essentially is an anti-violence taskforce— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) August 7, 2019
Reminder, this activist allegedly said McConnell should be stabbed in the heart and have his neck broken https://t.co/lePC1pTdG0
But there's no bias in Silicon Valley, of course.
