While Twitter continues to engage in mass bans of conservatives, even banning conservative users for posting “hate facts,” the social media platform has no issue with a post featuring a graphic image of President Trump’s severed, murdered corpse.
Promoting the new film Dadda: Donald and Daisy Duck Adventure, actor and left-wing activist David Vescio tweeted a photo of a bloodied corpse depicting the president on Sunday.

According to Art News, the film exhibits “the role of violence in U.S. history, as well as to distinctly American forms of racism and celebrity worship” and also features Ronald and Nancy Reagan.
The film was directed by father-son duo, Paul and Damon McCarthy.
“The characters are defiled frequently, often in disturbing ways involving saws and feces,” Art News reports.”
But “they keep coming back,” Paul McCarthy told the publication. “It’s part of how we enjoy our celebrities – they die and come back.”
“The Donald Duck character resembles, to some degree, Donald Trump, but he looks a little like Donald Duck, too,” McCarthy added.
Vescio, 42, who stars in the film and reportedly specializes in playing villains, spent two-and-a-half years in prison for drug trafficking in 1993—1995.

If this was a Democrat, people would be banned and the Democrat would probably demand a police investigation and spend weeks playing a victim on every news outlet available.

Dear White People, It takes a lot of white privilege balls to stand on this stolen and occupied continent and complain about immigration.

Meanwhile, Twitter has permanently banned more high-profile critics of progressivism than any other platform. Tommy Robinson, Chuck Johnson, investigative journalist Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, former Nixon and Reagan adviser Roger Stone, and InfoWars founder Alex Jones are all permanently banned from Twitter for what Twitter says is violations against its “Hateful conduct” rules.
Threatening the President of the United States is a federal felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of making “any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States”.
Despite the fact that Vescio’s tweet appears to be in direct violation of US law, Twitter has not removed it and his account has not been suspended.
Earlier this month, Twitter banned Mary Ann Mendoza, an Angel Mom who runs the Angel Families organization, for posting about the dangers of illegal immigration and sanctuary cities.
Similar permabans of high-profile democrats are virtually unheard of.
In 2018, Twitter employees were caught on camera by Project Veritas, boasting about discriminating against pro-Trump, conservative accounts.
One employee discussed shadowbanning political accounts, a practice that Twitter has continually denied using. Another claimed accounts that expressed an interest in “god, guns, and America” were likely to be flagged as “bots.” Another employee, Mo Norai, explained that Twitter moderators regularly discriminated against accounts deemed to be pro-Trump.
Twitter engineer Pranay Singh is seen admitting in a secretly recorded video to mass-banning accounts that express interest in God, guns, and America, while others detailed how the platform utilizes a shadowbanning system against conservatives and Trump supporters.
