Twitter blocks Marsha Blackburn’s pro-life Senate campaign ad

A digital ad by Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn was blocked by Twitter on Monday after the company claimed it contained an “inflammatory statement” related to abortion.

Blackburn used her two-minute ad to say she “fought Planned Parenthood, and we stopped the sale of baby body parts, thank God.”

An employee of Twitter told Blackburn’s team the ad would be blocked from appearing on the popular social media site unless Blackburn’s claim that she “stopped the sale of baby body parts” while serving in Congress is edited out. Boasting of shutting down that aspect of Planned Parenthood’s operation constituted “an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction,”

The campaign responded to Twitter’s decision on Monday afternoon by urging supporters of Blackburn to share the ad elsewhere on social media and join her “in standing up to Silicon Valley.”

    The question of abortion being legal has been answered and as far as our politicians being a source of moral guidance, forget that crap.

  • dmttbt says:

    I was a person who was in Marsha Blackburn’s district until they changed the district and then she would not accept my e mails. Up to that point I think we had a lot of agreement on matters. I am not against abortion and a lot of other people are also not against it. The fact that she is against abortion does not make me against her.

    Stop using Twitter. That is a stupid excuse. Libs can say anything
    they want, kill, main and Twitter doesn’t care. Screw them.

    The only reason Twitter blocked her is because the management lives, works, and operates in a place below whale shit!!

    People should be upset about treating the bodies of dead babies like cars in a junkyard. In a sane world Planned Parenthood and the rest of the baby slaughter industry would be shut down and the murdering doctors would be sent to death row.

    This highlights a problem that is going to increase in the years ahead. We have several companies that have become dominant players in social media. They and their censors are going to decide what is allowed and what isn’t. Apple censors what programs can be sold in its app stores. Facebook is increasingly going to decide what news is real and what is fake. We are heading into a time when a few corporations will determine what can be distributed.

      If the body parts of children who are no longer living can be harvested and used to help other people I have no complaints at all. Why would anyone?

      1. justinwachin says:

        So if someone murders you or a family member that’s okay as long as they sell your body parts to the highest bidder? Would you want the murderer to make a profit off selling your remains?

        For starters these babies are often aborted in a way to protect the most valuable parts. Selling of human body parts is illegal in the United States. Many people awaiting an organ transplant would be willing to buy one if that option was available.

        What we have is another way the baby slaughter industry has found to make a profit off killing babies. They and the politicians they own are no better than the demons who ran Hitler’s concentration camps.

        It sounds like Ms. Blackburn has the guts to shine a light on the sleazy practices of the baby slaughter industry. Hopefully she will win the election. Abortion clinics are just as evil as the concentration camps in Hitler’s Germany. They need to be shut down. The “doctors” in these places are nothing more than serial murderers.

        1. dmttbt says:

          I think you would read better if your head were not so far up your rectum. Please show me where I said it was acceptable to murder someone for body parts, or even better where I suggested that the murderer could make anything off it. I SAID IF THE PERSON WAS NOT LIVING I SEE NO REASON TO NOT USE THE PARTS. I don’t think the murderer is going around with bodies selling parts. You should keep ignorant crap like that to yourself.

          1. dmttbt says:

            I would like to also point out that abortion in the united states is legal. If you are against abortion don’t have one. Other than that your opinion on the matter means little.

          2. justinwachin says:

            The concentration camps in Hitler’s Germany were also legal. That doesn’t make them right. Slavery in this country was legal at one time; that doesn’t make it right.

            It sounds like you would have no problem with the Holocaust or slavery as long as they were legal.

            I will speak against evil. The baby slaughter industry and those who support it are evil.

          3. justinwachin says:

            The babies sold for their body parts were killed in the abortion clinic. The business that performed the abortion sold the body.

            Out of all due respect you are the ignorant person in this conversation. You ignore the connection between the child’s murder and the marketing of their parts. The abortion provider found it was more lucrative to sell the dead babies than to throw them out. They made money killing and removing the baby from the mother. They made money off selling the baby to the highest bidder.

          4. dmttbt says:

            Why would anyone throw out parts that are in deep need? If the fetus has been aborted selling the parts or not selling the parts will not bring it back. If you are one who thinks that there would be no abortions if not for the market value of the parts you are badly mistaken. Abortions are caused by people having unprotected sex and rapes and etc. If there is any killing done we need to be doing it to the people who are causing the abortion to take place.

          5. justinwachin says:

            If the abortion industry thought selling body parts was a good idea they should have no problem owning up to it. The reality is the abortion industry has tried to pass fetuses off as nothing more than tissue. If they began selling baby bodies it would become apparent to all but the most clueless that a baby is not some tumor or growth. A fetus is a human with a working brain, working heart and the ability to feel pain.

            Abortion is primarily caused by people who find it more convenient to kill a baby than to carry it to the point of birth. The highly profitable abortion industry holds abortion out as an easy choice. For several hundred bucks they promise to make the woman’s problem go away. It doesn’t hit many women until the deed is finished that they have just murdered their child.

          6. Interestedintruth says:

            how would these children no longer be living….unless they were murdered? So, it’s legal?Sorta like slavery was. Abortion clinics sell these little things for $200 a pop.

          7. dmttbt says:

            All of you people who are coming out saying that torture camps were legal in Germany and slavery was once legal and all that are absolutely correct but I have nothing to do with what the Germans did or with what the Americans did in the way of slavery, that time has passed. I have been in a war zone courtesy of the United states and I can tell you the people who say we were wrong for the interment of the Japanese in this country don’t know what the hell they are talking about. Just as Hillary says that not all Muslim are bad. I will not hang my hat on those statements because the one I thought would be different will be the one who comes up and cuts my head off. Do not have false faith in mans kindness.

          8. Interestedintruth says:

            I think your need to rant has made you go off topic.

          9. dmttbt says:

            The whole rotten government is my topic. The fact that we cannot contact a sitting official because we are not in their district offends me. I have requests for financial assistance from those in other districts and in fact from Marsha Blackburn after she would not respond asked for a contribution. If you represent the people you should represent the people.
            On your belief that the selling of body parts causes abortions is ridiculous. Those who have abortions are not likely to become responsible parents and their babies are also not likely to produce anything other than another abortion.

    Another example of the “Progressive” left’s interpretation of “Free Speech”. It’s ok as long as they approve it, otherwise it is dangerous “Hate Speech”.

      “Free for me, not for thee” is their mantra.
