(Conservativepeak)- Republican Rep. Barry Moore deleted his personal Twitter account after he was suspended for making comments about the riot on Capitol Hill on January 6. Moore took a stand against Big Tech and social media giants who have taken to censoring conservatives in recent years.
While it wasn’t immediately clear why Moore was suspended from Twitter, the Republican lawmaker for Alabama’s 2nd District had published a series of posts about the riot and the fact that there is evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“We have more arrests for stealing a podium on Jan. 6th than we do for stealing an election on November 3rd!” he said in one tweet recently. We can’t publish it here because…well, he deleted his account.
His claim is true. There have been dozens of arrests over the Capitol Hill unrest on January 6, where protesters broke into the Capitol Building and caused destruction.
The tweet was made in reference to the Department of Justice’s announcement that a man pictured holding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s podium during the riot was arrested.

Speaking to WDHN News, Shana Teehan, Moore’s Chief of Staff, confirmed the suspension and explained why he deleted his account.
“Yes, he was suspended, but then deactivated his account because of the censorship of conservative voices,” he saw happening.
The move came after President Donald Trump was permanently suspended by Twitter roughly two weeks before the January 20 inauguration. Twitter only chose to suspend President Trump after he officially conceded and it became certain that Joe Biden would become the next president of the United States.
Twitter knows that the Biden administration will support ongoing censorship.
On Facebook, Rep. Moore also announced his decision to shut down the Twitter account.
“Sunday evening, I deactivated my personal Twitter page after seeing many other conservative voices wrongfully silenced on social media,” he said.
However, Moore did say his Congressional Twitter account would stay active and he would use it to provide information about his Congressional work.
Now…how many other conservative politicians will put their money where their mouth is?
