Conservatives are at war and in enemy territory

Allen West sounds the alarm that conservatives are at war with the liberal social media. It has been obvious for some time that conservative ideas are being squelched in the New Town Square.

And we saw Project Veritas reveal the bias behind the scenes at Twitter. Veritas showed how engineers admitted on camera that they shut down accounts they thought were automated — because they used the words “God” or “America.”

I guess I’m a bot, as well. I use those words all the time. Proudly.

There are many more examples. If I listed all the major examples, it would end up being a …..
