    TECH TYRANNY: Twitter Bans James Woods For Paraphrasing American Philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson
    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/201...waldo-emerson/

    Twitter banned conservative actor James Woods over the weekend for paraphrasing American essayist, poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, for “abusive behavior.”

    James Woods tweeted, “If you try to kill the King, you better not miss.” #HangThemAll – similar to a quote from an essay Emerson wrote on Plato: “When you strike at a king, you must kill him.”

    Fellow conservative actor Adam Baldwin tweeted a screenshot of the message Twitter sent James Woods.

    “You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behavior an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice,” Twitter’s messaged stated.

    Oh the irony.

    Always liked James Woods as an actor, and now his political stuff has been outstanding. Shame on Twitter.

    Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and others all seem to be engaged in selective censorship and banning.

    Not that I like either show, but how about we throw Married With Children, the Simpsons, and Attitude era WWE in the mix as well?
