Twitter forced Sen. Mitch McConnellâ€™s campaign Team Mitch to remove video of leftists calling for violence outside the Senate Majority Leaderâ€™s home in Louisville, Kentucky on Monday, saying the footage violates the platformâ€™s â€œviolent threats policy.â€
â€œThis morning, Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell,â€ McConnellâ€™s campaign manager Kevin GoldenÂ said.
â€œWe appealed and Twitter stood by their decision, saying our account will remain locked until we delete the video.â€
The social media company also forced two other accounts to remove the video, including congressional staffer Ben Goldey and Daily Wire journalist Ryan Saavedra, despite the videoâ€™s obvious newsworthiness.
Twitter asked me yesterday to delete this tweet:
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
I said no and they suspended me *and* McConnell’s re-election campaign

In the video, far-left Black Lives Matter activist complained that McConnell should be killed, either by murder or natural causes.
â€œJust stab the motherfucker in the heart, please,â€ Helm said of a hypothetical McConnell voodoo doll.
â€œOne of those heart attacks where they canâ€™t breath, and theyâ€™re holding their chest and they fall backwards,â€ she said. â€œHeâ€™s in there nursing his broken arm. He should have broken his raggedy, wrinkled-ass neck.â€
Meanwhile, Twitter has allowed, and likely helped propagate,Â #MassacreMitchÂ to trend after leftists blamed him for the two shootings in El Paso and Dayton last weekend.
