Twitter, YouTube scrubbing all content and banning all users who question the official narrative on the Florida school shooting | 25 Feb 2018 | A few years from now, looking back on why Twitter collapsed and YouTube was abandoned by every intelligent person, we’ll remember what these totalitarian tech giants did in February, 2018.

Anyone who questions the wisdom of the school students-turned-propagandists -- who were all probably eating Tide pods a week ago -- [LOL!] is immediately banned and silenced. Only one side of this "debate" is allowed to exist: The side that worships the lunatic Left's demands that all law-abiding Americans surrender their self-defense firearms because a group of traumatized school kids were shot at by their own lunatic classmate. The insanity, stupidity and derangement of all this is beyond description.
