(NewsGlobal.com)- This week, Republican candidate for Arizona Attorney General, Abe Hamadeh posted a clip from 2020 of Hillary Clinton once again claiming that the 2016 election was “stolen” from her.
“You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.” — Hillary Clinton pic.twitter.com/aevcqOXS6z

Hamadeh’s tweet went viral with well over a million views, leading many to ask why Hillary Clinton hasn’t been suspended from Twitter for peddling “misinformation” about US elections.
Well, we all know why.
Hillary Clinton is ideologically-aligned with Twitter, therefore no action will be taken.
Twitter’s terms of service and its rules on “misinformation” only go one way.
When the New York Post broke the story of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, Twitter argued that it barred tweets about the article and suspended the Post’s account because the report violated their rules on sharing hacked or stolen information, despite the Hunter story being neither hacked nor stolen.
But this week, ProPublica was free to tweet to its heart’s content its report on the tax returns of wealthy Americans.
The only way ProPublica could have received that confidential information is if it was illegally obtained from the Internal Revenue Service. But Twitter hasn’t stepped in to suspend ProPublica’s Twitter account or prevent Twitter users from sharing the report.
This is the problem with Twitter’s rules. They only apply to Twitter’s ideological opponents.
Hillary Clinton could spend an entire week tweeting nothing but complaints on how she lost the election because it was “rigged” and “stolen,” and Twitter wouldn’t lift a finger to stop her.
This is why Twitter blue-check Leftists spent Thursday in a blind panic over the news that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk submitted an offer to purchase Twitter.
They’re laughably claiming Musk’s hostile takeover of Twitter would be a threat to “free speech.” But in reality, what scares them most is Musk poses a threat to Twitter’s ability to censor their political opposition.
The ability of every American, regardless of political views, to have an open, free platform terrifies these people, especially in an election year.
Whether Elon Musk’s purchase offer is accepted remains to be seen. But the response to his offer alone was remarkably revealing.
