Elon Musk is freaking out the leftists again. It looks like his purchase of Twitter is probably going to go through and that’s not good news for the tyrannical left.
First of all, they don’t want Trump on Twitter.
And even more importantly, they don’t want to let their political opposition to have a say in ANYTHING. They want to continue to control speech and shut down anyone who disagrees with them. They don’t have good arguments for their policies so the only thing they can do to get an “edge” is to censor people.
So with the possibility of the leftists losing control over the information that the public actually sees, they are totally losing their minds, and like Trump and his MAGA Republicans, Elon Musk has been branded as being a threat to democracy.
Ben Collins, senior reporter with NBC News, is not happy at all. And unlike the reporters of old on’t give personal opinions, he’s making his displeasure known to all. He tweeted, “For those of you asking: Yes, I do think this site can and will change pretty dramatically if Musk gets full control over it (Twitter). No, there is no immediate replacement. If it gets done early enough, based on the people he’s aligned with, yes, it could actually affect midterms.”
Guess that means Collins is admitting that if the leftists can’t control the narrative, and there are no “guardrails” (censorship), they will lose elections. In a fair fight, they will lose.
The left is very very worried that Musk might do EXACTLY what they’ve been doing for a while now. MSNBC’s Ari Melber said back in April, “You could secretly ban one party’s candidate…secretly turn down the reach of their stuff and turn up the reach of something else and the rest of us might not even find out about it until AFTER the election.”
Yes, Melber. You could. And you have. Poor thing. What goes around, comes around. Welcome to the party, pal.
Leftist Robert Reich tweeted, “When multi-billionaires take control of our most vital platforms for communication, it’s not a win for free speech. It’s a win for oligarchy.”
Does he mean people like Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos and Michael Bloomberg? People like that?
Politico Magazine editor Garrett M. Graff says “Be afraid, be actually afraid.”
Yes, leftists SHOULD be very afraid. Their Twitter monarchy may be coming to a close.
Southern Poverty Law Center’s senior investigative reporter Michael Edison Hayden tweeted, “If you think Elon Musk giving Trump, Project Veritas and Alex Jones a bigger social platform to manipulate will benefit the future of free speech, you’re totally delusional.”
They’re upset that they alone can’t manipulate people anymore.
They won’t be able shut us down when we talk about COVID-19 therapies and vaccines or election fraud or anything else they want to ban the American folks from hearing about. Under Musk, Twitter might not be going after “misinformation” and “hate speech” anymore which is what they call information posted by Republicans and Trump supporters.
Back in the spring, The Washington Post went straight to the racism card and declared “women and people of color could suffer the most.”
MSNBC’s Anand Giridharadas called Musk a “sociopath.” But, oddly enough, these people were never censored or banned for their hate speech against Musk.
Censorship won’t totally end though. The leftists still have their other censorship platforms like YouTube and Facebook. In fact, Facebook is planning to censor all kinds of things during this election cycle.
The leftists love suppressing people. It’s not a hobby anymore, it’s a career. And they will hold on to their communist ways as long as they possibly can – until something else comes along to knock them off their censorship pedestal.
