Mexican Socialist President Andres Manuel Obrador on Thursday vowed to oppose censorship from social media giants who have blocked US President Donald Trump from their platforms.
Obrador is a committed socialist, but sees the great danger of silencing freedom of expression and builds an international coalition around the issue.
Meanwhile, America’s Democrats cheered the news that their opposition would be silenced, proving once again that their radicalism is second to none.

The Mexican president on Thursday vowed to lead an international effort to fight what he sees as censorship of social media companies that have blocked or suspended the accounts of US President Donald Trump.
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s administration is reaching out to other governments to form a united front on the issue.
“I can tell you that at the first G20 meeting we have, I will make a proposal on this issue,” López Obrador said. “Yes, social media shouldn’t be used to incite violence and all that, but it can’t be used as a pretext to suspend freedom of speech.”
“How can a company act as if it were all-powerful, all-powerful, like a sort of Spanish Inquisition on what is expressed?” He asked.
Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said Mexico was starting to launch an international campaign around the issue.
“Since Mexico, through our president, has spoken, we immediately made contact with others who think the same,” Ebrard said, noting that they had heard from officials in France , Germany, the European Union, Africa, Latin America and South East Asia. .
