Biden on a Mission to Destroy American Economy

Elon Musk is not a Republican. He was a registered Independent when he voted in California. He is not a conservative. His past political donations have included Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and California’s super liberal Governor Gavin Newson.
Once big fans of the CEO of Tesla and his electric cars left wing liberal elites in technology, the media, and government now claim Musk is a supervillain in a class with their arch enemy Donald Trump. Why? It’s simple: He wants free speech; they don’t.
In Elon Musk’s own words, “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.” In other words, Twitter will no longer censor views and opinions that do not fit the liberal Democrat agenda. As Elon Musk wrote, “Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate.” Translation: The Hunter Biden Laptop story let’s all talk about in the weeks leading up to the election. Are vaccines effective? We need to discuss all sides of the issue and look at the data, not just take the word of lord Fauci as gospel and ban anybody who questions the effectiveness of the vaccine.
The list goes on and on and the left is horrified. They demand to control the narrative. As former Trump Advisor Larry Kudlow stated: “Elon Musk has unleashed a political earthquake 7 months before the midterms.”
When left wing liberal founder of Amazon Billionaire Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post, great news for the cause. When Steve Job’s Billionaire window bought controlling interest in Atlantic Media, it was great – she’s one of us. When Tech Oligarch Billionaire Marc Benioff, and current Twitter Board Chairman, bought Time Magazine, he was a white knight saving it from extinction.
Now a self-proclaimed free speech absolutist Billionaire Elon Musk buys Twitter – it’s the end of the world. We are now told by the aforementioned billionaires and their minions that Musk, who explicitly opposes censorship, is going to silence all of his critics. This is from the crowd who de-platformed a sitting President. This would be laughable if it were not so serious.
Last week, even former President Obama sprang into action. He flew to Stanford University and delivered an hour-long speech on the dangers of social media. Obama openly spoke of the concept of government needing to intervene on our speech platforms. The rules he would consider were very vague but included anything that “helped his vision of democracy and protected the rights, freedoms, and dignity of all citizens.” Of course, to achieve the goals of the far left, almost any draconian censorship can be justified.
Obama’s tactics here are of a kind we’ve seen from media and government for the last five years as Mike Solana stated on Bari Weis’s website, “No laws were plainly proposed, because no law concerning the regulation of speech can be easily enacted—it’s that pesky Constitution. “ You remember Bari, she was chased from the New York Times for her support of the Second Amendment.
In terms of new policies and new features for Twitter, it’s unclear what Musk will do.
But as Mike Solana so eloquently stated, “Thank you, Elon. If you screw this up, we’re probably all doomed. No pressure.”
