The Left's reaction to Musk's Twitter purchase is hilarious ... and revealing.

Check out this perceptive article by Ben Shapiro. It is right on target: "Elon Musk’s Twitter Takeover Reveals the Left For What It Is."

In part, Ben writes: "Musk has been vocally critical of Twitter’s management of information flow. Immediately upon the news of the buyout breaking, Musk tweeted, 'Free speech is the bedrock of a functional democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated. I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans.'

"All of these seem like worthwhile and anodyne (inoffensive) goals. More speech, not less. More transparency, not less.

"And yet the political Left went utterly insane. Charles Blow of The New York Times vowed to leave the service; in fact, #LeavingTwitter trended on the service. The American Civil Liberties Union, while noting that Musk is a card-carrying member, fretted, 'there’s a lot of danger having so much power in the hands of any one individual.' Meanwhile, powerful individual with consolidated power Jeff Bezos worried over the possibility of Chinese influence on Twitter: 'Interesting question. Did the Chinese government just gain a bit of leverage over the town square?' Sen. Elizabeth Warren called the deal 'dangerous for our democracy.' MSNBC’s Ari Melber hilariously agonized, 'You could secretly ban one party’s candidate, or all of its candidates, all of its nominees, or you could just 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 elections.'

"Yes, Ari, we know. That was the concern for tens of millions of us when social media decided to silence the Hunter Biden story, lock accounts of prominent Trump-associated officials who shared the story, and then finally to throw former President Donald Trump off of all services simultaneously following Jan. 6."

Wow! Questions that suddenly seem to be so pertinent!! :blahblah


Meanwhile others have very perceptively observed this years ago. One's who were unmercifully mocked for the very same concerns. :hmmm


Perhaps these wise, prudent and future thinking people, previously mocked and eviscerated, would serve our country very well as leaders. :nod

And here Musk, whose a regular citizen, advocating for what America has always been about, free speech, among other things, is suddenly the bad guy? I don't know.... going after a regular American citizen for this just seems to be really bad optics. All around.:mousedance

As soon as Musk bought Twitter, all of a sudden the Demonrats decide to form their own Propaganda Ministry to stop "disinformation." The problem is they are the creators of all the disinformation and this is nothing but a way for them to shut up anyone who would dare publicly disagree with their tyrannical Communist~Fascist agenda. :furious

It isn't hard to figure out the timing on them coming up with this disinformation nonsense. They call this the Ministry Of Truth that is a deception title because they are pointing fingers when they need to point them right back at themselves.
