Activists Protest Outside Twitter HQ: Ban Donald Trump

The Hill reports:

An activist group in San Francisco is calling out Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, calling him “complicit” after President Trump used the social media platform to boast about the size and strength of his nuclear launch button.

“Resist SF” on Tuesday night projected the phrases “@jack is #complicit” and “Ban @realDonaldTrump” on the building where Twitter’s headquarters is located. They are also planning a protest for Wednesday night.

A Facebook event for the protest accuses Dorsey of “endangering the world” and violating its own rules by not banning Trump after he tweeted that his nuclear button is “much bigger” and “more powerful” than North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s.

    Send Donald to the Youtube comment sections where he belongs.

    • Gustav2

      Or back to Breitbart comment sections.

      • FAEN

        Or a vat of Velveeta where he crawled out from. His primordial ooze.

  • bkmn

    I say sue Twitter for not enforcing their TOS. Have people that were banned/blocked from twitter file the suit. Hit them where they will feel it. Trump breaks the TOS constantly and always has.

    • RaygunsGoZap

      I love that!

    • Tawreos

      And he gets them mentioned on the news almost daily, they are not going to sacrifice the sacred cow.

      • bkmn

        I know, but it would not hurt to hold their feet to the fire for a while.

  • RaygunsGoZap

    I saw this earlier. Liked the projection “@jack is #complicit”.

    Trump’s personal account should be banned permanently.

  • Smokey

    Without Twitter would tRump actually have to communicate rather than bloviate?

    • olandp

      A banning from twitter wouldn’t cause a spontaneous miracle. He would still bloviate.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Lock him out! Lock him out! Lock him out!

      “Yuge” mistake

      • KCMC

        Bigger more powerful mistake.

      • FAEN

        The BIGGEST mistake!

      • Bigly yuge. The yugest mistake. No one does mistakes like Trump. Beautiful mistakes.

        I kinda wanna take a scalding shower now. I feel filthy. 🙁

    • Adam King

      Until it says “Ex-Republicans for Honesty in Government” I don’t believe them.

  • boobert

    As long as there’s twitter, the moron will be on it ! Same with fox news.

  • Frostbite

    I said in another post, people should start boycotting Twitter until Trump is banned. Hit them where it hurts, their stock, their shareholders, their advertisers.

  • FAEN

    Banning him only makes him a martyr. Mocking him relentlessly however would drive his tiny hands crazy.

    • safari

      A martyr to who? And who cares?

      • FAEN

        A martyr to the GOP base who always see themselves and BLOTUS as being ‘oppressed’ by the liberals.

      • Mark Née Fuzz

        Don’t you have to be dead to be a martyr? That works.

        • FAEN

          Xtians always have work arounds Mr Tasty Nips.

    • The_Wretched

      Trump might rage-tweet us into nuclear war. I’m willing to have him martyred.

      • FAEN

        Rage tweeting is a regular day for us now. Sigh.

        • TuuxKabin

          To desensitize the masses, as if most already aren’t.

          • FAEN

            I know. It’s sad.

  • Leo

    Remember an analyst pointed out that if Donald Trump closed his personal account and stopped tweeting altogether that Twitter would lose ~$2 billion in market value.

  • PickyPecker
  • Jonathan Smith
  • Butch

    Or perhaps the rest of us, including the mass media, should stop allowing ourselves to keep chasing our own tails over Trump’s latest tweet.

    • Gerry Fisher

      It drives me nuts when I hear newscasters reciting his tweets

  • Lakeview Bob

    I would like to see this happen but it never will.

  • HZ81

    Nope, these aren’t scary times at all. Excuse me while I add more paint-thinner to my coffee.

  • Lazycrockett

    POS is bout the only one that makes twitter coin, he is not going to get banned. Best we can do is unfollow.

    • Steven Jaeger

      How can you unfollow me never signed up for that damn thing

  • TK

    So their solution is to protest and also use their service as a platform?

    A true protest would involve STOPPING USE OF TWITTER.

    STOP using Twitter

    • pch1013

      I quit Twitter a couple of years ago, having come to the conclusion that it is little more than a raging torrent of toxic sludge that has done more than anything else to cripple our body politic.

      But maybe that’s just me.

  • well, that’s cute. does twitter really rule our world? i’m old and don’t understand. kick him off, i say. will that make “a difference?” i don’t know. like i said, i’m old and out of touch. you go for it, kids.

  • yes b’y

    Well finally, people are protesting.

  • Bluto

    I bet twitter would ban me for threatening mass murder but for someone who actually HAS CONTROL OF 1000’S of WARHEADS threatening a nuclear holocaust is just fine. It’s time to bring down twitter.

    • DesertSun59

      You are absolutely correct. After all, you could try it and you’ll see the result.

  • gaycuckhubby

    So, if he’s banned from Twitter and starts putting up press releases that say essentially the same things who do we boycott? Should we boycott any newspaper that prints his press releases? After all they would be complicit in putting us into Danger.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Good question. The press release is made up by someone else, not Drumpf. I don’t think they would want to post what he would have sent out on twitter.

      • gaycuckhubby

        multiple people inside and outside the White House said that his tweets do go through a communications director. whether you believe it or not the other question is are the people that he is surrounding himself with that much more competent than he is?

  • boobert

    I’m not a big twitter user and very seldom tweet. I don’t follow the moron. There are some that I like to read.

    • FAEN

      The fucking moron.

      I don’t put that much faith in the intelligence of KJU. [Of course, I have ZERO faith in the intelligence of DJT]

  • m_lp_ql_m

    But Twitter isn’t really in SF, or they don’t pay taxes to SF at least.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • EdA

    Threatening to kill a few million people as part of a temper tantrum, and being able to carry out the threat, seems to me to violate Twitter’s Terms of Service, at least as much as –eventually– barring Sheriff David Clarke’s venom.

  • DesertSun59

    Barking at Twitter’s CEO will do exactly no good. They’ve not even bothered to remove 45’s MILLIONS of Russian bot ‘supporters’.

  • Friday’s_cat

    Twitter, where money Trumps country.

  • gaycuckhubby

    If you ban him from Twitter then he will just start doing interviews with people and saying the exact same thing. He has friends who are Publishers and friends who are reporters and hungry reporters who be happy to report anything he says. He would make the same threats in the same uncontrolled manner. He would call up national reporters at 3 in the morning and ran to them and they would publish it. then we have a discussion on which magazines and newspapers and TV shows and radio shows we should all boycott

  • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

    Is it better for him to continue tweeting so that his derangement is highly visible to all? If his twitter account went dark it would be easier for the white house to fake some basic level of Presidential competency. It’s happened before where President’s were incapacitated or not fully functioning and their limitations hid from the public.

    I say let his ugliness and insanity be on full display (and also documented for the history books)

    • kareemachan

      But knowing he couldn’t tweet about it might send him over the edge that much sooner and we’d soon hear about him roaming around the WH naked at 3am muttering to himself. You *know* someone there would let the cat out of the bag about this…..

      BRB, gotta go see the origin of that phrase….

    • Keroleen

      That’s pretty much my primary motivation for not wanting him banned as well. Much easier for the WH to fake competence if he’s bundled away from social media.

  • greenmanTN

    I don’t want Trump banned from Twitter. I want his instability and infantile behavior in public view.

  • JWC

    They won’t ban him They, like most ,.don’t have the balls Everyone want to sit around and be appalled by Trump but no one want to remove him

  • 1980Gardener

    Can we step away from a reflexive reaction to “ban” things we don’t like???

    • kareemachan

      Can we start holding people responsible for the shit they do?

      Baka.

  • Longpole

    It’s all her fault.
