The Rebel Media wants Florida Gov. Rick Scott to fire Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel as soon as possible, but the gatekeepers for the almighty Twitter apparently think it’s a bad idea.
“Twitter running cover for Scott Israel by discouraging people from clicking our #FireScottIsrael petition link,” The Rebel TV host John Cardillo posted Sunday. “Don’t let them. RT and sign now at www.FireScottIsrael(dot)com”

The post was accompanied by a screenshot from Twitter, Inc., with the message: “Warning: this link may be unsafe,” referring to www.firescottisrael.com .
The prompt contends the site could be harmful or a violation of Twitter’s Terms of Service, possibly because it steals passwords or personal information, contains malicious software, or could be spam.
Twitter offered a large blue button to go “Back to previous page” and a tiny link at the bottom to “ignore this warning and continue.”
“Twitter is prohibiting tweets that link to our petition at www.FireScottIsrael (dot) com. They literally are forbidding your to disagree with them,” Ezra Levant, “Rebel commander,” posted in one of several tweets about the ordeal.
CENSORSHIP SHOCK: Twitter is running extreme interference for disgraced Broward sheriff Scott Israel. Try typing www.FireScottIsrael (dot) com normally — Twitter won’t let you post that. What other conservative ideas are being thrown into an Orwellian “memory hole”?

“CENSORSHIP SHOCK: Twitter is running extreme interference for disgraced Broward sheriff Scott Israel,” he wrote in another. “Try typing www.FireScottSsrael (dot) com normally – Twitter won’t let you post that. What other conservative ideas are being thrown into an Orwellian ‘memory hole’?”
The Fire Scott Israel petition contends “he must be removed” because his “history of corruption, incompetence, protecting radical Muslims, and politicizing the Sheriff’s Office has now resulted in the deaths of 17 innocents.”
PLEASE RT! After thousands signed our petition to #FireScottIsrael , Twitter blocked people from sharing the link! We won't let them silence you: PLEASE type www.FireScottIsrael (dot) com into your browser and demand the removal of the Broward County Sheriff. #2A #tcot pic.twitter.com/cE0AaStgtR

Numerous folks have criticized Israel’s leadership in the wake of the recent deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
The Fire Scott Israel petition contends the sheriff’s policies “allowed for dozens of calls on Parkland killer Nikolas Cruz to fall through the cracks.” Many believe intervention by law enforcement earlier could have prevented the tragedy.
