PJW is crying that Twitter is possibly censoring Trump.

But hang on a mo'!

Is Twitter part of the US Government?

Er, nope.

Twitter is privately-owned, so there is no obligation.

And the same can be said of Infowhores.

Take Trump's "greatest friend", the deep, dark CIA agent and consiglieri for the New York Mafia, Roy Cohn.

Have Infowhores mentioned him?

Er, nope.

Cohn is also a hero of Dodgy Roger Stone.

And what about Andrew Jackson? Infowhores portray Jackson as a saviour of the people when he destroyed the Second Bank of the United States.

But Jackson:
1. was one of the most powerful and largest slaveholders in the nation, and would have his runaway slaves beaten upon their capture, one slave called Gilbert died from his beating;
2. loved slavery that much he organised a raid on Negro Fort in Spanish Florida to recapture fugitive slaves and return them to their rightful 'owners';
3. was involved in several plots of treason against the United States, and indeed, the destruction of the Second Bank of the United States was a British plot;
4. removed the federal funds from the Second Bank of the United States and placed them in his 'pet banks' which were selected not because of any banking expertise but because those banks were owned or run by his cronies, who repaid Jackson by using those federal funds to inflate a massive credit bubble which resulted in the 1837 panic;
5. far from slaying the bankers, gave the Rothschilds their big break when he appointed them as agents for the United States in Europe.

So it is a bit rich for Infowhores to whinge about censorship.
