January 6, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) -- Twitter ramped up censorship restrictions today to prohibit people from liking, retweeting, or replying to select tweets following the break-in at the U.S. Capitol.

Twitter is now flagging select tweets, including tweets by President Donald Trump, with the message, “This claim about election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, Retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence.”

The incredible irony of their censorship is that they’ve slapped this label onto a video message by Trump in which he calls for peace, telling protestors, “You have to go home now. We have to have peace.”
