(ConservativeHub.com) – The right to free speech is one of the foundational principles of the United States. Concerns about the proper protection of free speech abound, particularly regarding limiting the spread of censorship.
It’s sort of like Pandora’s Box. Once you open up the lid on limitations, it’s hard to ever put it back in place. A perfect case in point can be found in Facebook and Twitter’s recent decisions to begin censoring President Donald Trump’s social media accounts.
After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.https://t.co/CBpE1I6j8Y

Emboldened by Trump’s permanent ban on Twitter, left-wing journalists have begun pressuring Twitter to silence their conservative counterparts’ voices. For instance, The Daily Wire reported that leftist Sarah Jeong demanded that Twitter ban conservative journalist Andy Ngo on Friday, January 8. Fellow leftist reporter Donovan Farley then jumped on the bandwagon, lashing out at Ngo the following day.
Ngo is probably best known for his work reporting on the activities of Antifa, a radical leftist group implicated in the recent unrest at the nation’s capital on January 6.
Perhaps Jeong and Farley’s recent calls to censor Ngo are innocent. However, they could also be part of a left-wing effort to stop the truth about the recent incident at the US Capitol Building.
