Josh Mandel is a well-known Republican candidate for US Senate in Ohio who appeared on NBC News last week to discuss how Twitter is censoring his campaign. The Big Tech Company targeted Mandel over a poll he ran about something that will be a major 2022 election issue; how Democrat Joe Biden handles the massive influx of people at the Southern Border.
“As a US Senator, I am going to stand up for the safety and the security of the American people, whether that means stopping radical Muslim terrorists from coming over the border or that means stopping Mexican gang-bangers from coming over the border. Our priority should be the safety and security of the American people,” Mandel told CBS news. “My job is to fight for the people of Ohio.”
Mandel was censored from Twitter for using what the CBS News host called “racist language.”
“Just because you and liberal media call someone racist, it doesn’t make it true,” Mandel responded. “You are not the arbiter of who is racist. You talk down to the people. I am speaking to truth to power. I don’t care what names you call me,” he said.
Twitter censored Mandel for posting a poll that called out “Muslim Terrorists: or “Mexican Gang bangers” and asked his followers who will commit more crimes.
“Just like President Trump, I am being canceled by big tech and by these silicon valley power-hungry execs who think they can silence us. I am going to defend our Constitutional rights. It is vile and disgusting that these people are trying to restrict our freedom of speech here in the heartland. I speak truth to power. Look at the FBI Terror Watch list who arrested three Yemini men on the southern border, and they were on the terrorism watch list. My message is to stand up for the Judeo-Christian values that America was built on. I am speaking up for the people of Ohio, and if you don’t like it, I don’t care. These are statements of truth. Yemini’s who were on the watch list were sneaking in over the border. A Democrat is calling Mexicans gangs,” Mandel said. “I got censored for saying the same things.”

KEY POINT OF MANDEL’S MESSAGE:
“We should be focused on stopping the Middle East Terrorist and gang bangers from coming across, and Biden doesn’t want the media to know, and I don’t care what they call me, I am going to keep speaking truth to power,” Mandel said to NBC News.
I had a chance to talk to Mandel and ask him to tell me more about the Judeo-Christian foundations of America that he brought up in the interview, and ask him what voters should understand about how those ideas intersect with him being censored on Twitter.
“A fundamental aspect of the Judeo-Christian foundation of America is respect for the sanctity of life. That is in our culture, both past, and present, and it is the respect we have for life that separates us from Middle Eastern and Atheist beliefs. It is important to remember what concepts we were founded on and what we grew strong on, and that is not atheism or Middle Eastern Beliefs,” Mandel told me.
“Freedom of speech is in our US Constitution, and Twitter censored me for saying something that is based in fact and reality,” he said.
“I spoke about the access at the border that gives gang bangers and radical terrorists a chance to sneak into the country. Biden is either incompetent, or he is allowing this to happen and for those people to infiltrate the country, get on our welfare system and likely have children who will be future voters for Democrats,” he said to me.
“One of the tenants of Judeo Christian means that we have clarity for good versus evil, so when I see gang bangers sneaking in, I will speak out. I don’t care about Twitter.,” Mandel said.
“It is wholly ridiculous that the mainstream media will question me about Twitter law rather than United States law. It is just another reminder that MSM is full of fake news and that they on the side of cancel culture,” Mandel told me.
MANDEL SAID HE WAS SPEAKING THE TRUTH; LETS FACT CHECK HIM:
1)According to Axios: Scoop: Four people matching terror watchlist arrested at the border.
2) According to Newsweek a Democrat is verified as talking about gangs at the border: In their article, Henry Cuellar Says Mexican Gangs Benefiting From Joe Biden’s Border Approach.
3) Reuters reported on gangs as well, in their article, Exclusive: Migrant president’ Biden stirs Mexican angst over boom time for gangs.
Newsweek and others even posted on Twitter about gangs at the border and didn’t get censored:

Numerous people posted the same words.

However, Mandel was censored. Whether he did it on purpose or not, the fact is that the border is a disaster.
Hopefully, help is on the way:
After being censored by @Twitter this past week, I’m looking forward to supporting President Trump’s new venture!

Mandel says he has been through worse than Twitter banning him or liberals calling him a racist.
“I’m the grandson of a Holocaust survivor who was liberated by Allied troops, and I’m the grandson of a US Army Air Corps veteran, and these hard-working, gutsy men instilled in me a duty to the community and a duty to country,” Mandel told the Times of Isreal once.
I would put my money on Mandel over MSM any day.
