GEORGIA- The 2020 Election was a tumultuous one, to say the least. From the position of President down, there are unverified results, accusations and evidence of voter fraud, and runoff races for party control.
The Senate runoff race in Georgia has led to a battle of words on social media, with insults flying in every direction.
The most recent vicious verbal assaults took place between Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and two Georgia Republican women, GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler and GOP Congresswoman-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Loeffler is currently in a hotly contested runoff race with Georgia Senate Democratic candidate, Raphael Warnock.
The fate of the Republicans current control of the U.S. Senate is unknown, as incumbent Sen. David Perdue and Democratic challenger, Jon Ossoff, are also involved in the runoff election, which will take place January 5th.
Warnock, who has recently come under fire for his racist comments, and outlandish views on prisons, has also thrown a low blow at this country’s brave men and women who serve our military, when he said, “no one can serve God and the military”.
This statement is not only false, it is extremely insulting to those who put their life on the line to protect this great nation.
Ilhan Omar, who was not even born in this country, clearly has no problem with Warnock’s remarks, as she completely supports his claim.
This did not sit well with Loeffler, who took to Twitter on Friday, November 20th, saying:
“It’s no wonder The Squad fully supports @ReverendWarnock: He totally supports their dangerous & extreme agendas.”
“And @IlhanMN completely agrees with his disgraceful comments about our active service members, veterans, and their families,”
“The Squad” that Loeffler is referring to is the group of four progressive congresswomen that includes Omar and the ever outspoken and completely left-wing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
It’s no wonder The Squad fully supports @ReverendWarnock: He totally supports their dangerous & extreme agenda.

As expected, Omar responded:
“Blatant lies from the disastrous, insider trading, Qanon conspiracy supporting, fear mongering, appointed Kelly.”
“Pro tip: to win an election you run on ideas, debate your actual opponent and defend your record, not run against the Squad. Ask Trump, he f#%d around and found out.”

Loeffler then pointed out the fact that this is not the first time Omar has been seen being “un-American”, saying:
“We saw the video of you smiling and laughing while talking about as-Qaeda & 9/11.”
“We know that you funneled MILLIONS of dollars to your new husband’s “consulting” firm. And we know that you’re an unabashed anti-Semite.”
She then drove it home with a statement many can agree with, saying:
“You should be expelled from Congress.”
We saw the video of you smiling and laughing while talking about al-Qaeda & 9/11.
We know that you funneled MILLIONS of dollars to your new husband’s “consulting” firm.
And we know that you're an unabashed anti-Semite.
You should be expelled from Congress. https://t.co/DQxcWG7m7q

Omar put a lot of faith in her Democratic ally with her response, saying:
“Kelly, I just won my re-election and [you’re] about to lose your job.”
Georgia’s GOP Congresswoman-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene was not about to let Loeffler be bullied by the racist and anti-American Omar, as she took to Twitter saying:
“Back down @IlhanMN”
She went on to say:
“You married your brother, so you’re disqualified from running your mouth.”
Back down @IlhanMN

Omar tried to deflect these allegations, and call Greene’s mental state into question by saying:
“Looks like the crazy lady has logged on,”
She went on to say:
“I know things might be different where you come from, but you have to get off the looney train now that you are in Congress,”
The victor of the fight is Greene, with her hysterical and accurate response of:
“Don’t even get me started on where you come from. We don’t marry our brothers here in America, so I’m not sure who you’re calling crazy.”
The New York Post reported that Greene, who heads to Congress after winning 80 percent of the vote in her rural district, gained notoriety this summer for an online ad that had her cradling an AR-15 rifle and warning Antifa to “stay the hell out of northwestern Georgia” – until it was censored by Facebook.
Greene has also been continuously censored by Twitter throughout her campaign as well, for her support of right-wing views, views which we all know social media outlets love.
At Law Enforcement Today, we know all about censorship, as our lead spokesman has been permanently banned from LinkedIn, and we are currently facing a throttling on Facebook that has never been seen before.

WASHINGTON, DC- It appears to be a full-blown attack against the biggest pro-police pages on social media. And at least for Law Enforcement Today, the timing coincided with our endorsement of President Trump for re-election.
Needless to say, when we saw Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slamming Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, we were virtually cheering out loud.
After all, both platforms have seemingly taken to making a life’s mission out of censoring conservatives, not to mention sites sympathetic to law enforcement.
The pure hypocrisy of both platforms is mind-boggling. How these platforms continue to maintain protection under Chapter 230 is puzzling. Clearly, they have taken on the role of publishers.
It is not of course limited to Fakebook and Twitter. Our National Spokesman, Kyle S. Reyes, and the owner of our company, Captain Robert Greenberg, have both been permanently banned from LinkedIn for allegedly posting “fake news.”
“We’ve been in touch with the biggest police pages and groups on social media,” said Reyes. “It’s not just us. It’s all of us. The biggest pages representing law and order in America. It appears to be a full-blown assault against the pages of those who serve and protect. That’s absolutely chilling.”
The interesting thing is the items they posted that were flagged as fake news were all widely sourced from other legitimate sites. At least one of the articles cited I wrote…and I am meticulous in making sure I cite my sources from legitimate sites.
We have currently seen our reach on Facebook “throttled”—or reduced—by approximately 90 percent. We are not the only ones. There are several other law enforcement sites experiencing the same thing.
Clearly, Fakebook is targeting not only conservatives, but also pro-law enforcement sites. Meanwhile, in the case of Twitter, they put warning labels on tweets sent by the President of the United States… yet let tweets from terror organizations such as Antifa remain on the platform untouched.
Twitter has also taken to “fact-checking” tweets or articles about election fraud. Of course, that only seems to apply to tweets or articles favoring Republicans.
One radio talk show host conducted a test. They posted a tweet in which they claimed that Stacey Abrams was really the governor of Georgia and she had been the subject of voter fraud. No such warning appeared on that tweet. Bias? You tell us.
Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke called out Black Lives Matter, and we posted a story on Facebook about it. Below is a screenshot of our article.
Someone responded to the article, saying, “Eat a dick uncle tom.” We’d show you who it was, but THAT would ironically be a violation of Facebook’s terms.
Uncle Tom is, of course, a derogatory term for African Americans. That comment was reported to Facebook because clearly, such a racist comment had to violate their community standards, right? Apparently not.
They of course said it was their “technology” that reviewed our report and did not take the content down.
“We understand that the content may be offensive or hurtful. Facebook is a global community. People express themselves differently, but we only take down content that goes against our standards. We review and update our standards regularly, with the help of experts.”
So, let us get this straight.
Fakebook will take down comments about possible election fraud, COVID-19 posts that don’t go along with the narrative, and all manner of “politically incorrect” content, but a racist, sexually explicit comment somehow doesn’t “violate” their “community standards?”
Let us take the hypocrisy and agenda-driven mission behind Fakebook further.
A member of our team tried to publish a video tribute to fallen officers – however, Fakebook kept giving “publishing error” messages.
We’ve posted thousands of videos on Fakebook with no problems, however, trying to post a video about a fallen officer results in “technical” errors.
This is why platforms such as Parlor, MeWe, and others are starting to thrive.
Fakebook and Twitter are going out of their way to interfere with, throttle, or censor content from conservative and law enforcement-friendly sites.
Both platforms, and others such as YouTube, Google, and LinkedIn, want to be liberal echo chambers and they will apparently get what they want.
There are over 800,000 police officers in the country. That does not include civilian employees and correctional officers.
Wouldn’t it be a shame if those 800,000 plus individuals, plus their extended families, all took their business off these platforms? What would Fakebook, Twitter, etc. do without the ability to sell that information off to third parties?
What is the saying? Get woke, go broke.
