The Left’s war against President Donald Trump is reaching new extremes.
They truly want to destroy him forever.
And Trump is furious after the Left crossed a line nobody saw coming.
Democrats are using violence at the U.S. Capitol to launch attacks that were never possible against President Trump.
Now that the election has been certified for Joe Biden, they want to remove all the influence he has.
That’s why Twitter, which is a favorite platform of Trump’s, suspended his account, and why Facebook suspended him “indefinitely.”
Shopify, which is a service that online shops use to sell merchandise, has banned Trump from using their platform.
Trump used it to sell campaign merchandise, and his organization has used it to sell non-election related Trump merchandise for years.
Both of those stores are shut down, with the site stating that it is in response to violence at the Capitol.
“Shopify does not tolerate actions that incite violence. Based on recent events, we have determined that the actions by President Donald J. Trump violate our Acceptable Use Policy, which prohibits promotion or support of organizations, platforms or people that threaten or condone violence to further a cause,” a Shopify spokesperson said in a written statement sent to TechCrunch. “As a result, we have terminated stores affiliated with President Trump.”
This is an insane escalation, which shows that Big Tech isn’t just trying to stop Trump from using his voice, but using any of their services at all.
Shopify is one of the largest e-commerce sites on the Internet, and is used by millions of companies.
At one point they claimed to be against censorship as a selling point.
In 2017, their CEO Tobias Lütke wrote in a letter that they wouldn’t participate in censorship, “commerce is a powerful, underestimated form of expression.”
That stance was reversed in 2018 when they decided to kick several users of the site.
Lütke rescinded his letter, removing it from their website after making that decision.
Now they are going even further, and if President Donald Trump isn’t safe from censorship from them, none of his supporters are.
