Actor James Woods was locked out of his Twitter account on Sunday for a tweet from July that the site said was in violation of its rules.
According to the Associated Press, Woods was suspended for a July tweet of a satirical meme that encouraged men not to vote in this November’s midterm elections.
The meme came from a hoax campaign with hashtags like #LetWomenDecide and #NoMenMidterms, with Woods admitting in his tweet that the campaign was “not likely” to be authentic. “Pretty scary that there is a distinct possibility this could be real,” he added.
Woods, who has 1.7 million followers for his brand of Hollywood conservatism, told the AP that he received an email from Twitter warning him that the meme “has the potential to be misleading in a way that could impact an election.”
According to the AP, the actor said that Twitter told him his account would be reactivated if he deleted the tweet, but he refused.
Representatives for Twitter and Woods did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
Conservatives quickly decried Twitter’s disciplinary moves against Woods and attacked the social media giant for what they called an attempt to silence non-liberal voices.
Here it is, @jack. Now…what is it about this tweet that made you ban @realJamesWoods? pic.twitter.com/me2A7GiyJn

James Woods in Twitter jail for trying to "impact an election" with misleading information.
David Hogg asks Canadians to vote in U.S. elections….nothing happens.
But there's no bias against conservatives, honest!https://t.co/eXvVIhwSAO

Hey @jack, unlock @RealJamesWoods account. Stop silencing conservative voices over nothing. It's unAmerican. What does it profit you to win the midterms, if you lose the first principles of the country? #FreeJamesWoods

Are you kidding me! That is the post????? Come on, Twitter! Seriously?

This is ridiculous. Twitter now officially sucks. I hope it backfires and @RealJamesWoods gains a million more followers. #FreeJamesWoods

Woods, a two-time Oscar nominee for his performances in “Salvador” and “Ghosts of Mississippi,” has seen other sorts of blowback from his active tweeting in favor of President Trump and conservative causes like gun rights.
On July 4, his longtime agent, Ken Kaplan, told him that he would no longer represent him.
Woods has also turned his ire against Twitter itself earlier this year, encouraging followers who owned stock in the website to divest their shares.

So who gives a shit about twitter?
Just another form of censorship
Can’t have the truth out there fcking up their narrative
It’s so obvious you’d have to be blind not to see it
And hopefully that truth ,is all that’s needed to show people what’s really going on
It’s happening on a lot of sites , …
Maybe Woods should start his own and F Twitter
Twitter? CEO is a misleading scumbag jew.
Yup… and another reason why they want Woods comments shut down , censorship is a key element of the Jew game
they only want their version of things being told and known
Jack Dorsey – CEO of Twitter looks pretty Catholic to me –
Dorsey was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, the son of Marcia (née Smith) and Tim Dorsey. He is of English, Irish and Italian descent. His father worked for a company that developed mass spectrometers and his mother was a homemaker. He was raised Catholic, and his uncle is a Catholic priest in Cincinnati. He attended the Catholic Bishop DuBourg High School.
His heroes and counterparts(glass, stone, sandberg, bloomberg etc..) are almost all kosher and he is a board member of the berggruen institute, a globalization think tank for global governance. He’s a “good goy” puppet.
And we all know that the O.T.O., Rosicrucians, and Masons, the foot soldiers of international Zionism, do not allow Catholics in their ranks, right?
HENRY, JUST A NOTE….. I ALWAYS FOUND IT ODD THAT CATHOLICS AND JEWS INTERMARRY WITH EASE……………..AND CONVERT TO ONE ANOTHERS *AHEM*……
“Woods, a two-time Oscar nominee for his performances in “Salvador” and “Ghosts of Mississippi,” has seen other sorts of blowback from his active tweeting in favor of President Trump and conservative causes like gun rights.”
You see, this is why From the Trenches World Report has been squeezed by Google and Youtube to the point of non existence, because we are good conservative republicans, backing that good conservative Donald Trump.
F#@k each and every one of you mother f#@kers, Donald Trump and the Christian conservative f#@king movement are a pack of f#@king traitors by definition, so I guess you’ve chosen your side and which pack of traitors you are going to be a part of. So you don’t need to f#@king be here. Bye.
Twitter CEO is a jew, Wood’s agent who won’t represent him is a jew…does anyone with more than three brain cells NOT see a pattern here?
I repeat myself, but if you want to know who rules over you, find out who you’re not allowed to criticize.
The SOB lives and breaths jew !
OMG, I just woke to see there’s still some Woodism simmering. Henry leveled it, but I’ll just add…
Anyone, anywhere, who alludes to the efficacy of voting must immediately be dismissed as either super shill of super stupid.
Woods has told everybody not to vote before,
Look it up.
I searched but came up empty.
But anyway, he holds up Trump who holds up voting. Guilt by association?
Well, we covered all this yesterday.
You didn’t try hard enough
“Woods could use his account again if he deletes the tweet, but Woods says no. … and encouraged men not to vote in the midterm elections.”
If Woods said no to the ruling elite of which he is a part of, that might mean something.
This is a democrat/republican argument.
He is a f#@king low life elitist fabian socialist piece of shit who has performed fellatio just like every other hollywood actor to get to where he is at.
I would not piss on him to put him out if he was on fire. He is a f#@king traitor to our people and to our Bill of Rights. He is working in conjunction with Alex Jones to make it look like “conservative view” is being censored while Winston Chee and 10,000 more like him are sitting at their terminals removing the documentation showing the open treason committed against the American nationals.
That f#@king conservative view ain’t going nowhere, buddy, no more than that progressive view, because they are all international communists.
What is being removed is the ruled class’ ability to communicate on a mass scale.
Just a little side bet, but I’m betting Woods gave Ronald Reagan head when he was a little boy.
This is a game being played just like Black Lives Matter trying to make the murder of our people look like a race problem as they further build the police state.
While we are watching Woods and Jones shill for the jews, the truth is being removed from the internet in the shuffle and Jones and Woods are in on it.
I disagree. Woods is different Henry. I’ve watched him change over time. No disrespect. He is pissed off and is in our court.
‘He is working in conjunction with Alex Jones to make it look like “conservative view” is being censored ‘……..BAM and SHAZAM!!!!
Well you most certainly have the right to disagree, Mark, and if you truly believe what you say, I have a little favor to ask. I would like you to write James Woods a letter and send it to him certified, return receipt, telling him about our fight here in the Trenches and asking him to donate $10,000 to the cause. Because I’ll bet you he’s donated more than that to good conservative politicians this year. Tell him it is the only way you can convince me. 🙂
Will you correct my spelling? 🙂
Correct the spelling, punctuate, and correct the grammar. We’ve been doing it for seven years, what makes you think we would stop now? LOL
