What word got a cyclist suspended from his team? Suspended from his job, suspended from his work.
The word was "Bye" www.foxnews.com... This was followed by a second tweet with the words "That's right."

That tweet was deemed to be offensive and divisive.

This is an example of the cumulative things like this that happen over and over on a nearly daily basis that has caused what the mainstream media is calling "shy" or "secret" voters.

All one has to do is let a liberal know you plan to vote for Trump. Voila! If you are lucky the liberal demand you are fired from your job as an offensive and divisive person. If you are not lucky you get beat up. If you are like my neighbor your Trump sign is vandalized along with your home.

This is exactly why people who plan on voting for Trump only talk about it with others they know are for Trump, a sort of secret underground society. It is far to dangerous in a world where liberals feel free to destroy the lives of people for not voting for their candidate. The totalitarian mindset of today's Liberal has caused people who are conservative to have to go underground and not talk to pollsters or journalists out of fear of losing their jobs or worse.


This is the tweet that he replied "bye" to that got him suspended from his professional cycling team


Simmons, 19, reacted to a tweet from Dutch journalist Jose Been in which she said she hoped for her American friends that “this horrible presidency ends for you,” adding “if you follow me and support Trump, you can go.”



This is the second tweet that really got him suspended from the team when he wrote "That's right"


A separate Twitter user wrote that Simmons was “Apparently a Trumper.” He wrote back: “That’s right” with an American flag emoji.


And pollsters wonder why Trump voters are "shy" and "hidden".

It's because we are terrified of Liberals who WILL beat us up,

who WILL demand we are fired,

who WILL do their best to destroy our reputations on social media.


We see totalitarianism and how the il-Liberals
are not afraid of doing things that would make Stalin proud,
to intimidate people into voting for their candidate
and not to speak out on any subject that the
Liberals deem politically incorrect.

We are headed for a whole world that operates on a social score system like China has now.
It doesn't have to be government sanctioned like China, it will be sanctioned by the social media giants.

So he was censored for his political views. He was censored for which candidate he supports. I don’t know how people don’t see this as absolutely terrifying. Someone will come in here and say “Twitter is a business and they can do whatever they want,” and not realize how they are contributing greatly to turning this country into one with a dictatorship. I don’t know how they don’t see it.

What is the story on the picture at the end of tour post? We are to infer that he got beaten up by someone for supporting Trump. That may be true but is it really? He looks like he is wearing eyeliner- that bruise around his eye sure did give him perfect eyeliner. Do you know the circumstances?

This happened right after the election. Yes, he was beaten up for wearing a Trump hat in public. This is a REAL photo of a REAL person.

This was during the time right after the election when lots of people were beaten up for wearing a Trump hat. I just like this picture in particular as an example.

I found the actual story behind the photo at ABC. I put the link in under the photo, thanks for making it clear that the photo wasn't clear enough.

I'll go get you some more and add them in here, hold on.


This is a high school kid beaten up for wearing a Trump hat. www.usatoday.com...

It's not so much about the cyclist being blocked on Twitter or anything.

He apparently got suspended from his cycling team for Tweeting that?

Not sure your point "cyclist suspended".....

I was more interested in why a Dutch journalist would be triggered over Trump...

Anyhow Kirsch does have a point... Maybe logic is what triggers those on the left...

He probably has a publicity clause, I don't know if that's true, but I suspect.
So he's entitled to whatever views, but he can't do social media in any negative way that could affect sponsorships.

I believe you, I was just making sure you had vetted the photo. We can’t afford to be putting anything up that was a manipulated or not-exactly-as-portrayed.

Augustus is telling me his tweets weren’t censored. ???

ETA: Nevermind my last sentence. ☹️

I imagine you're right, and while his twitter account doesn't mention his team affiliation, his avatar picture has him in a team suit. Now I will say I think this is a BS situation and he should not be suspended as nothing he said was out of bounds of normal discourse. However those publicity clauses are a pain, and you really need an attorney to look over one before you sign it.

In so much as I didn't bring them up, you put them in your reply to me, I was merely commenting on the fact that the cyclist wasn't censored by Twitter.
