After cracking down on President Trump's tweets Twitter now has Florida lawmaker Matt Gaetz in their sights. A Monday tweet from Gaetz was restricted for "glorifying violence."
Gaetz tweeted in response to President Trump's announcement that Antifa would be formally designated as a terrorist organization.
“Now that we clearly see Antifa as terrorists, can we hunt them down like we do those in the Middle East?” Gaetz tweeted.

The tweet was restricted and unable to be liked, replied to or retweeted. Before Twitter restricted it, it had been retweeted more than 12,000 times, according to a report from The Verge.
More on the story from The Hill:
The social media platform placed warnings on some of the president’s tweets last week, including a couple containing “potentially misleading information” about mail-in voting.
On Friday, Twitter accused some of Trump's tweets of violating the glorification of violence policy by calling the protesters in response to George Floyd’s death "thugs" and appearing to threaten military intervention over the demonstrations that had turned violent.
Antifa activists have grown in visibility since Trump won the election in 2016, but terrorism experts responded to his Sunday announcement by saying the decentralized movement is not an organization with defined leadership.
President Trump took action with an executive order regarding social media and their ability to not be considered a publisher on the internet. Lauren Chen did a great job explaining Trump's executive order:
Are politicians on the left being restricted like those on the right? It will be interesting to see what becomes of this executive order.

Despite what the mainstream media would have you believe, our country as a whole is not racist. Just like there are bad apples in every bunch, there are racist people in our country.

Oh, Biden. His lights are on, but no one home.
