Isn't it removing his 'right to free speech'?

I don't know if there is such a thing anymore. Every word someone utters or posts somewhere is recorded out there on one platform or another for all eternity.

Not like the old days where one could say something and then plausibly deny they said it. 

I'm not sure what the point of all the social media platforms is really , like FB, twitter, SnapFace, etc if saying something someone disagrees with often means censure. 


Not something that happened to me but FB has banned people for sharing something they "FOUND " on FB.

FB and other platforms are littered with people who doing nothing all day but sit in their shit stained jimmies posting crap so that people can respond, get in an argument and have crazy Karen report them and get them banned. It's like a sport.

And yet media outlets post/print complete rubbish, half truths, out and out lies and for the most part escape unscathed.They enflame the Karen's of the world who go out and multiply and then proceed to drag people down into their morass of stupidity. 
Trump is an idiot but what happened to just scrolling on by, or just not following  him.  Even with his social media accounts shut down he wins in a sense because people are giving him the attention he craves. 
If a crying baby knows you will pick them up every time they cry then that is what they will do. Ignore them ( if it's clear the crying is just for attention) and they stop. 

I read that one of the reasons for the ban, and it made sense to me, was that after the storming of the Capital, FB  & Twitter don't want to be the platform that he uses to rally his troops for any type of insurrection.
