And at this point, I’m calling on all Republicans and conservatives who still have clout, we have to invoke the 25th Amendment. We cannot withstand this.”Story continuesThis week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi mentioned she wouldn’t rule out impeaching Trump for the second time if his administration doesn’t invoke the 25th Amendment which authorizes the vp to switch the commander-in-chief if he resigns or dies.“The year is looking up again,” tweeted Jameela Jamil.Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen tweeted, “Twitter finally banned Trump!

Have a good time” including #TrumpGained.Megyn Kelly tweeted, “If you’re on the right or not woke or want to raise Q’s about the integrity of our electoral system, you’re next.”And Kirstie Alley, who in October shared plans to vote for Trump a second time, added, “If we are going to agree that private businesses like twitter have a right to discriminate against anyone they want because of politics then we are laying the groundwork for businesses to discriminate against race, gender, religion, sexual persuasion etc..GIANT STEP BACKWARDS.”She additionally shared a press release from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that questioned the “unchecked power” of tech firms to silence customers. Alley wrote, “ALL people should be concerned is the KEY here. It’s true, the average person will no longer have a platform to speak their views. This is called SLAVERY. This censorship proves BIG TECH now holds the keys to the chains.”To which Patricia Arquette responded: “No. This is a shocking minimization of the sheer vicious brutality of real slavery. Children were sold away out of their parents arms. People were worked and beaten to death. Shackled. Women were raped. Couples were separated and sold. Shame on you.” Arquette added that the Cheers alum was “incredibly spoiled if you think it’s equatable in any way” and vowed to mute and block her account.If we’re going to agree that personal companies like twitter have a proper to discriminate in opposition to anybody they need due to politics then we’re laying the groundwork for companies to discriminate in opposition to race, gender, faith, sexual persuasion and many others..GIANT STEP BACKWARDS— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) January 9, 2021ALL individuals needs to be involved is the KEY right here. It’s true, the common individual will not have a platform to talk their views. This is known as SLAVERY. This censorship proves BIG TECH now holds the keys to the chains.— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) January 9, 2021No. This is a stunning minimization of the sheer vicious brutality of actual slavery. Children have been bought away out of their dad and mom arms. People have been labored and crushed to loss of life. Shackled. Women have been raped. Couples have been separated and bought.
