I could be mistaken but I'm pretty sure these two tweets from Bolsonaro – showing videos of himself going into crowds in Brasilia, hyping hydrochloride as a cure, and encouraging an end to isolation – are the first of a world leader to be deleted by Twitter for rules violation: pic.twitter.com/Qlf7YNXtBC

Along with new forms of spying, a totally unprecedented police state martial law lockdown, and several other new forms of oppression, the system is also using the Coronavirus hoax to up the ante on censorship.
Silicon Valley is now assuming an open position of power over rulers of nations.
In an unprecedented move, Twitter has yanked two posts by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, in which he took aim at coronavirus lockdowns as part of his controversial campaign to avoid a shutdown of the economy.
Bolsonaro has become the first ever head of state to have his tweets censored by the platform under recently-updated guidelines, requiring users to remove content that defies “global or local health authorities recommendations” aimed at halting the spread of the deadly disease that has already taken hold in the Latin American country.
The Brazilian leader, who has been adamant that economic damage from lockdowns is a price too high to pay for lowering health risks, made a trip to a street market on Sunday, mingling with crowds and chatting with street vendors.
The videos, posted by Bolsonaro in the wake of the visit, apparently ran afoul of the Twitter guidelines. In one of them, Bolsonaro assures a street seller that he was “not going to die” due to the measures to combat the pandemic.
“What I have been hearing from people is that they want to work,” the president, dubbed the “Trump of the Tropics,” reportedly said.
In another video, the Brazilian leader reportedly took a swipe at local governors for ordering non-essential commerce to close and imposing a ban on public events.
Twitter did not elaborate why it chose to erase the videos, referring to its new guidelines instead. “Twitter recently announced… the expansion of its rules to cover content that may be against public health information directed by official sources and that could put people at greater risk of transmitting Covid-19,” it said in a statement to Brazilian G1 portal.
It’s an extremely bold move for Twitter to say “we will decide how Brazil is ruled, not its president.”
But people are making bold moves left and right under the cover of this dumb hoax, and the stupid goyim have no idea what is going on because all they can think about is dying of a virus that is literally the flu.
