Twitter is more and more becoming the land of the woke and not a place for even neutral reporting. The latest controversy involves a tweet from Axios that was *gasp* critical of Vice President Harris. We would like to link to the original tweet, but we can’t... So here is Fox News' version of the story:
Axios drew criticism Monday after it deleted a tweet fact-checking Vice President Kamala Harris, who repeated the debunked claim that the Biden administration is "starting from scratch" with its coronavirus vaccine rollout. . . .
Axios shared that exchange on Sunday evening, but included a comment by White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, who refuted CNN's reporting last month that quoted anonymous Biden officials making the same claim.
"We certainly are not starting from scratch because there is activity going on in the distribution," Fauci said during a White House press briefing.
How bad was Vice President Harris’ original claim? Even the liberal-biased PolitiFact called her out for it:
.@VP told @mikeallen that “there was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations” and that Biden admin was “starting from scratch.” That’s wrong. The Trump admin had a plan to distribute to locations chosen by states and let them take it from there. https://t.co/0MoQ8OnpoN pic.twitter.com/nYb8r5gPKz— PolitiFact (@PolitiFact) February 15, 2021
While the Twitter mob does not tolerate criticism of Vice President Harris, it takes an opposite approach to right-of-center conservative TV and movie star Gina Carano. Gina was fired for an Instagram post that was “over wrought,” but Disney rehired liberal Director James Gunn despite much worse tweets. As Ben Shapiro points out:
Just a reminder: Disney canned Carano for an overwrought Holocaust comparison. They brought back James Gunn despite these tweets. I defended both from cancellation. Would be nice to see Gunn and co. defend Carano. pic.twitter.com/ZiUyLPjmMG— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) February 11, 2021
Disney defended their actions because of two past tweets by Gina that were a pattern of conduct that led to her firing. These tweets are well within the mainstream of libertarian and conservative thought:
We need to clean up the election process so we are not left feeling the way we do today.— Gina Carano 🕯 (@ginacarano) November 5, 2020

This may be a good time to consider going to Parler. Parler is not all the way back, but it is getting there. More importantly, a forum is needed where multiple viewpoints are allowed and the truth is not hidden. RNLA is on Parler at @TheRepLawyer.
