Bernie Sanders supporters are saying their Twitter account was “censored and locked down” after they criticized Hillary Clinton.

@GuerrillaDems — which goes by the name “Guerrilla Socialists” — was shut down Thursday.

RoseAnn DeMoro points out a Twitter executive recently held a fundraiser for Hillary, and alleges the two events are related.

The account, which Twitter claims was suspended “by mistake,” includes the hashtag #FeelTheBern, in honor of Bernie Sanders. “The Guerrilla Socialists Are Committed to the Enduring Fight Against the Corporate Ownership of Our American Democracy,” the account’s description reads.

@GuerrillaDems posted an email from Twitter, claiming the suspension was due to “automated systems that find and remove automated spam accounts in bulk. Unfortunately, it looks like your account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake.”

As of Friday morning, the account appeared to be reactivated and has resumed posting articles and videos critical of Clinton.

    Funny how Twitter execs can put time and effort into this kind of crap but cant figure out a way to get their stock out of the toilet

  7. Warp Speed says:

    Twitter and the other social media are run by Fascists. They do not want free speech, only “their” speech.

    Hillary is the American Madame Mao, and just as vicious and scary!

  12. Slugger_McBuster says:

    Sanders supporters are getting a little taste of what “reap the whirlwind” means.

    These are liberals — and brainwashed zombies in the thrall of their leftist “professors” — who are now seeing what “progressivism” really means, and what their totalitarian Orwellian “heroes” in the establishment are all about.

    Conservative comments have been getting censored for years.

  13. Slugger_McBuster says:

    In a similar note, here’s something that illustrates how badly Google is in the tank for the establishment and the Democrat party.

    Around a week ago I started Googling “rigged primary DNC” to see what crops up — all the talk has been about Hillary being “anointed” and gaining delegates despite Bernie Sanders’s popularity. Conversely, there have been few if any legit complaints about Trump winning hands-down, because it jibes with public sentiment and polling data.

    Here’s what Google “autocomplete” comes up with before I even get the word “primary” completed:

    http://s21.postimg.org/k34bz0j9j/google_rigged_results.jpg

    See image link above. Google “suggests” the searches “GOP primaries rigged” and “Republican primary rigged” as the only two suggestions, by the time you type “rigged prima.”

    Friggin ridiculous.Talk about something that’s rigged. I had similar screen-grabs from around the time Climategate broke, with comparisons to the much more realistic suggestions from Yahoo and Bing. (Google was suggesting “Climate Guatemala” even up to the “climateg” entry,)

    Even more of reason to back Trump.

  17. Expat99 says:

    I think the socialist/fascist analysis misses the mark, as Sanders is decidedly more socialist/fascist than Clinton. This is more of an example of crony (or crone-y, since Hillary is involved) capitalism. Twitter knows Hillary will bring them big cash and eagerly crush any of their competitors so long as they do her bidding.

    The lefties love it when organizations censor conservative speech but suddenly it’s a different story when it’s turned on them eh?

  21. kestrel27 says:

    Exactly why I will never use or support twitter. I for one am sick of these left wing Nazi’s. Oh, and for you uneducated boobs out there. Nazis were the German socialist workers party. Socialism is step three after Liberalism, Progressivism, and before Fascism and the ultimate left wing utopia of Communism. None of which ever works out well except for those at the top. You know them well. Obama and Hillary. The rest of you are just well used useful idiots on the bottom of the barrel to support them.

      F Twitter. I had an account I never used, I disabled/removed it a couple weeks ago. Anything important that gets “tweeted” will get reported somewhere else anyway.

      How many Trolling for Trump points did you earn for all that work?

    The real terror group is the Trust and Safety Council. (https://about.twitter.com/safety/council)

    Anita Sarkeesian and the Feminist Frequency bunch are one of the censors, uh, I mean advisors. Look at the list. Twitter is nuts.

  27. Wild Bill Kinda says:

    Those stupid Democrats can all eat each other for all I care. If Bernie wins the votes but Hillary gets the nomination because of super-delegates, it just might happen. Fingers crossed…

  28. Ihaveonlyoneright_tovote says:

    The best description of liberals I’ve
    come across yet….feel free to share it:
    By John Hawkins

    1) You justify your beliefs about yourself by your status as a liberal, not
    your deeds. The most sexist liberal can think of himself as a feminist while the greediest liberal can think of himself as generous. This is because liberals define themselves as being compassionate, open minded, kind, pro-science and intelligent not based on their actions or achievements, but based on their ideology. This is one of the most psychologically appealing aspects of liberalism because it allows you to be an awful person while still thinking of yourself as better than everyone else.

    2) You exempt yourself from your attacks on America:
    Ever notice that liberals don’t include themselves in their attacks on America? When they say, “This is a racist country,” or “,This is a mean country,” they
    certainly aren’t referring to themselves or people who hold their views. Even
    though liberals supported the KKK, slaughtering the Indians, and putting the
    Japanese in internment camps, when they criticize those things, it’s meant as an
    attack on everyone else EXCEPT LIBERALS. The only thing a liberal believes he
    can truly do wrong is to be insufficiently liberal.

    3) What liberals like
    should be mandatory and what they don’t like should be banned:
    There’s an almost instinctual form of fascism that runs through most liberals. It’s not enough for liberals to love gay marriage; everyone must be forced to love gay
    marriage. It’s not enough for liberals to be afraid of guns; guns have to be
    banned. It’s not enough for liberals to want to use energy-saving light bulbs;
    incandescent light bulbs must be banned. It’s not enough for liberals to make
    sure most speakers on campuses are left-wing; conservative speakers must be
    shouted down or blocked from speaking.

    4) The past is always inferior to the present: Liberals tend to view traditions, policies, and morals of past generations as arbitrary designs put in place by less enlightened people. Because of this, liberals don’t pay much attention to why traditions developed or wonder about possible ramifications of their social engineering. It’s like an architect ripping out the foundation of a house without questioning the consequences and if the living room falls in on itself as a result, he concludes that means he needs to make even more changes.

    5) Liberalism is a jealous god and no other God may come before it:
    A liberal “Christian” or “Jew” is almost an oxymoron because liberalism trumps faith for liberals. Taking your religious beliefs seriously means drawing hard lines about right and wrong and that’s simply not allowed. Liberals demand that even God bow down on the altar of liberalism.

    6) Liberals believe in indiscriminateness for thought:
    This one was so good that I stole it from my buddy, Evan Sayet: ”
    Indiscriminateness of thought does not lead to indiscriminateness of policy. It
    leads the modern liberal to invariably side with evil over good, wrong over
    right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success.
    Why? Very simply if nothing is to be recognized as better or worse than anything
    else then success is de facto unjust. There is no explanation for success if
    nothing is better than anything else and the greater the success the greater
    the injustice. Conversely and for the same reason, failure is de facto proof of
    victimization and the greater the failure, the greater the proof of the victim
    is, or the greater the victimization.”

    7) Intentions are much more important than results: Liberals decide what
    programs to support based on whether they make them feel good or bad about themselves, not because they work or don’t work. A DDT ban that has killed millions is judged a success by liberals because it makes them feel as if they care about the environment. A government program that wastes billions and doesn’t work is a stunning triumph to the Left if it has a compassionate sounding name. It would be easier to convince a liberal to support a program by calling it the “Saving Women And Puppies Bill” than showing that it would save 100,000 lives.

    8) The only
    real sins are helping conservatism or harming liberalism:
    Conservatives often marvel at the fact that liberals will happily elect every sort of
    pervert, deviant, and criminal you can imagine without a second thought. That’s
    because right and wrong don’t come into the picture for liberals. They have one
    standard: Does this politician help or hurt liberalism? If a politician helps
    liberalism, he has a free pass to do almost anything and many of them do just
    that.

    9) All solutions must be government-oriented:
    Liberals may not be as down on government as conservatives are, but on some level, even they recognize that it doesn’t work very well. So, why are liberals so hell bent on centralizing as much power as possible in government? Simple, because they believe that they are better and smarter than everyone else by virtue of being liberals and centralized power gives them the opportunity to control more
    people’s lives. There’s nothing scarier to liberals than free people living their lives as they please without wanting or needing the government to nanny them.

    10) You must be absolutely close minded:
    One of the key reasons liberals spend so much time vilifying people they don’t like and questioning their motivations is to protect themselves from having to consider their arguments. This helps create a completely closed system for liberals.
    Conservative arguments are considered wrong by default since they’re
    conservative and not worth hearing. On the other hand, liberals aren’t going to
    make conservative arguments. So, a liberal goes to a liberal school, watches
    liberal news, listens to liberal politicians, has liberal friends, and then convinces himself that conservatives are all hateful, evil, racist Nazis so that any stray conservatism he hears should be ignored. It makes liberal minds into perfectly closed loops that are impervious to anything other than liberal
    doctrine.

    11) Feelings are more important than logic:
    Liberals base their positions on emotions, not facts and logic and then they work backwards to shore up their position. This is why it’s a waste of time to try to convince a liberal of anything based on logic. You don’t “logic” someone out of a position that he didn’t use “logic” to come up with in the first place.

    12) Tribal
    affiliation is more important than individual action:
    There’s one set of rules for members of the tribe and one set of rules for everyone else. Lying, breaking the rules, or fomenting hatred against a liberal in good standing may be out of bounds, but there are no rules when dealing with outsiders, who are viewed either as potential recruits, dupes to be tricked, or foes to be defeated. This is the same backwards mentality you see in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, except it’s based on ideology, not religion.

    Also if tnis is proven to be true, everyone who has a Twitter acount should close outtheir account, there are other venues to for social media to communicate with friend, famil, and to state your opinion.

  42. jwhid3 says:

    They’re feeling the bern of liberal tactics. Too funny. You Bernie supporters thought you were part of something big, but you are finding out that your vote doesn’t count and speech against HRC is going to be censored. Sounds juts like socialism…

  43. Piquerish says:

    Frankly, the surprise to me would be if they continued to permit unfettered expression in the face of it swinging against their most treasured of agendas. I quit FB over their sleazy political (and other) games, and I’m ready to stop Twitter as soon as it becomes clear they are thought policing. It’s their stinking company and they can do what they wish. I’d have it no other way, but I don’t have to associate with the lefty-loosey control freaks at Twitter.

  44. Do yourself a favor. Dump pop culture. Cancel Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and all the other collections of the mindless. Pick up a book, go for a walk; better yet – start planning for your future.
