Biden's Twitch Channel Banned the Word 'Frack' and Mentions of 'War Crimes'

On Wednesday, before the vice presidential debate, Joe Biden's Twitch channel banned users from its chat for talking about "Obama era war crimes," namely the administration's role in the Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen. For a time, Biden's Twitch channel also banned users from typing the word “frack.” Biden insists that he would not ban fracking if he wins the White House, a method for extracting oil and especially natural gas—long-touted as a cleaner alternative energy—that is increasingly under fire for disastrous side-effects, and which environmental groups and leftists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want to ban entirely.
