Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signs bill meant to punish tech companies that are accused of policing conservative thought:

“When you de-platform the President of the United States, but let Ayatollah Khamenei talk about killing Jews—that is wrong.”

Agree 100%. Ban both the morons but don't play the "but officer" card.

The point is that when you ban one but not the other, that reveals an agenda.

So they are OK with a sitting president being banned but are speaking out because of the agenda? Sorry I missed that part.  ;)

To ban a sitting president, he needs to cross a line that is at least as bad as the standard that everyone else is held to. The fact that he is banned while terrorists are given a platform to encourage violence shows that this is completely political and Twitter doesn't care about its own rules unless it furthers their political agenda.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Classic "but officer" failed argument.

Selective enforcement is also a form of bias.

That is what @avromie7 is claiming occurred here. That is a very legitimate complaint if it can be backed up, which he seems to have done. All you did was brush it off with something irrelevant.

What would you say if cops were only pulling drivers over if they exceeded the speed limit by 15 MPH, unless they were black, in which case they pulled them over if they went 1MPH over the speed limit?

There are 2 factors at play here - one is whether the individual did something that was wrong. The other is if the enforcement entity is acting out of enforcement, or with another agenda.

I didn't brush anything off. If they are giving others that are guilty a pass then that needs to be investigated. You don't compound the problem by letting others that are guilty off the hook. I will say it again, they both should be banned!!!

Nothing to do with 'but officer'.
You can have a policy of complete free speech 'we allow all views including those we find reprehensible'. Or you can censor views which cross a certain line.
If you block one and allow another, you're telling us where your line is, and are agreeing with the acceptability of those views

Exactly - and that's not to say that it's OK to exceed the speed limit, but when you apply different standards to different types of people, that's a problem.

True but when the main reason you are complaining is because you feel the president should not be banned then that is a smokescreen.

Whether or not The President should be banned is a separate discussion. If you apply rules unevenly to him, you prove that the reason he was banned had nothing to do with the rules and the rules are at best an excuse. It's not a smokescreen, it's proof that twitter is acting politically and not for the greater good (unless you consider socialism the greater good).

If you are trying to prove your point then don't pick a scumbag that deserves to banned as your lead witness. Class action 101.

Now if say Ben Shapiro was banned you would have a valid argument.

Being anti-Trump has absolutely nothing to do with socialism.
