A new disturbing censoring trend is emerging through Twitter’s banning of conservative users.
This latest tactical form of political warfare has been amped up in the media due to the recent banning of conservative activist, Laura Loomer. Unfortunately, her banning was not an isolated incident; as several other conservative provocateurs have also been permanently banned or suspended from this social media platform, usually for unspecified reasons. A few of the many others that have been barred by the Silicone Valleys’ swamp tirade include Jesse Kelly, Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, Candace Owens and David Clarke.
Abortion is one of the most contentious topics of the current time. We have those who petition that abortion is murder, while others demand it’s a woman’s choice to choose.

Pro-choice activists get called baby killers and pro-life activists are accused of hating women. These contrasting beliefs have each side vilifying the other without any constructive solutions being given consideration. Both sides are zealous in standing up for what they believe and the pro-life vs pro-choice debate is only heating up.

As a recent college graduate, I’ve been reflecting over the time spent at my former university. It’s still fresh in my mind the countless hours I invested in studying, doing homework, dreading group projects, and wasting class time listening to professors spew their hateful rhetoric about their distaste for anything that might slightly resemble conservatism.
