The meltdown over Elon Musk trying to buy Twitter has been deeply revealing. So-called liberals are terrified because he supports free speech. They think censorship is the only thing standing between us and fascism.
The Spectator’s Alexandra Marshall says if anyone can “reform Twitter” and “bring back free speech” it’s going to be Tesla CEO Elon Musk, following his offer to buy the company for $USD43 billion.
Wow, so many liberals post that they will leave twitter if @elonmusk buys it. In other words: “we will leave twitter if it turns into a free speech platform”
"This is a *real* digital revolution. #ElonMusk is the guy throwing stones in a glasshouse while also owning the patent to replace the glass. I'd back @elonmusk 100% in this venture to restore #FreeSpeech."pic.twitter.com/GMlijoqxd9— Alexandra Marshall (@ellymelly) April 15, 2022
Bill Gates can dictate global public health policy and everyone is okay with it, but @elonmusk owning twitter is outrageous?!
Lefties ran over free speech and left it bleeding on the side of the road. But they keep pretending that they’re for some notion of free speech even as they denounce it. Here’s Bill Clinton’s favorite troll, Robert Reich contradicting himself in a handful of paragraphs.
