Liberal Law Prof Slams Twitter For Censoring Trump: ‘Loser Will Ultimately Be Free Speech’

Professor Jonathan Turley is a liberal but also a man of principles and integrity.

Despite the fact that he probably doesn’t even support President Trump politically, he has been one of his greatest defenders.

Turley is now speaking out for Trump and slamming Twitter for censoring him.

Liberal legal scholar rips Twitter for censoring Trump, says ‘free speech’ ultimate ‘loser’

Constitutional law scholar Jonathan Turley warned that Twitter’s decision to level fact checks or altogether hide President Trump’s tweets threatened the concept of free expression in America.

“Twitter is now making the case for government action to monitor and control social media,” Turley wrote in a blog post published Friday. “The loser will ultimately be free speech.”

Overnight Thursday, Trump reacted to reports of massive looting and rioting in Minneapolis by calling the perpetrators “thugs” and threatened to deploy the U.S. military to the region to gain control of the situation.

“When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” Trump said in a now-hidden tweet.

Twitter deemed Trump’s tweet to be “glorifying violence” and hid it from public view. The company’s decision comes just days after a similar move in which the platform added a fact check to a pair of Trump tweets about mail-in voting…

“I am still leery of the government intervening on social media,” Turley wrote. “Free speech has few advocates in this fight. It is primary a struggle between Twitter, Trump, and the Democrats over who controls such speech.”

Once again, Professor Turley is a voice of reason in a sea of madness.
