EDITORS UPDATE: The American Greatness Twitter account has been reinstated.
On Thursday, Twitter censored the official account of American Greatness over a story about a planned “Trans Day of Vengeance” in Washington D.C., in the aftermath of the Nashville shooting.
The original story detailed the planned event by the far-left group Trans Radical Activist Network (TRAN), scheduled for 11:00 AM on Saturday, April 1st, in front of the Supreme Court building. The poster for the event asked attendees to “wear a mask” and “bring a buddy,” declaring that “We need more than visibility.” The poster said “Stop trans genocide.”
The tweet featuring the link to the story read as follows: “A planned transgender rally in Washington D.C. that has drawn widespread criticism after the Nashville school shooting is still set to take place on Saturday, despite increasingly violent rhetoric from the trans lobby.”
Twitter has since locked the account, @TheAmGreatness, demanding that the tweet be removed. Other accounts that have shared the poster, or otherwise described the event using its own rhetoric, have faced similar restrictions in recent days. As The Federalist reports, the official reason being given by Twitter is that such tweets “threaten, incite, glorify, or express a desire for harm or violence.”
American Greatness has appealed the decision and will not remove the tweet.
