Recently, we learned that Tesla CEO Elon Musk bought a 9% stake in Twitter. Now, he has put forth an offer of $43 billion dollars to buy Twitter outright.
Elon explained this decision in a letter to the chair of the Twitter board:
“I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy. However, since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company.”
Washington Post columnist and supposed “conservative” Max Boot immediately tweeted about Musk’s actions:
“I am frightened by the impact on society and politics if Elon Musk acquires Twitter. He seems to believe on social media that anything goes. For democracy to survive, we need more content moderation, not less.”
To believe that “on social media anything goes” is to believe in the freedom of speech, excluding criminal conduct of course. ACLJ Senior Advisor for National Security and Foreign Policy and former Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell gave his reaction to Elon’s offer and the reaction from the Left:
“They [social media platforms] are censoring the ACLJ. They are censoring me. They are censoring you. They don’t like arguments to be made that show their hypocrisy. . . . Thank God for people like Elon Musk. I think that more individuals need to step up and push to make Big Tech, corporations, universities, to just play fair. We aren’t asking them to be conservative. We are just asking them not to be making progressive arguments and limiting the conservative argument.”
