As Twitchy told you yesterday, Twitter’s Safety Patrol went after Team Mitch for posting video of an angry mob that swarmed Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky home and shouted death threats.
This is absurd. The tweet in question was video of a woman yelling threats at McConnell himself, and twitter suspended McConnell’s campaign account, saying the tweets put McConnell in danger.

Others who posted the video were targeted for their offense as well.

Politico covered Twitter’s response as well, though they couldn’t help but giving the thugs’ death threats a special little spin:

Sorry … what?
Pretty sure they were hurling threats at him and not the house itself but A for effort on this. We know this was hard for you to parse and write. https://t.co/SyGBAjVnel

The struggle is real.
Somebody needs to stab him in the heart…yes a threat towards his home.

They wanted to stab his house in the neck.
