Absolutely.

If DT is pushed out by extreme measures of biased media and people who cannot stand opposing views, it stinks. It will create far bigger conflict and a long one.

Let's tread carefully when people label their opponents trolls and liars instead of focusing on the issues in debates. These opponents do not deserve to be (perma)banned just because people get irritated that there is somebody with consistent view that differs.

Thanks, terri - this is a good thread.
What a load of absolute bullshit.

You rail against "PC" practices and policies, but frankly I can't think of anything much more politically correct than giving someone a pass for anything they say because "it's just their alternative view". No, in a functioning society people can't spew any crap they like and a) not be subject to criticism and b) not be held to account.

Trump claiming, completely without evidence, that fraud was committed and the election stolen is not an "alternative view". It is, in fact, fraud of its own making.

Trump claiming that the courts (presided over by judges, many of whom HE appointed) are wrong and fraudulent is not an "alternative view". It's more lies and bullshit.

Trump fomenting "revolution", rioting and a pathetic, symbolic coup d'état is not an "alternative view". It's a Federal crime and an impeachable offence.

I could go on...

Trump is a troll and a liar. He needed to have his mouthpiece removed—and a lot more besides.
