The Left is absolutely furious that Elon Musk purchased Twitter.
They are spearheading attacks against him on multiple fronts.
And the New York Times wrote one despicable hit piece on Musk that will make your head spin.
Twitter is not a greatly profitable business, but that is not where the platform’s power lies.
Leftists understand this, which is why they were desperate for the Twitter board to turn down Elon Musk’s godfather offer.
But the board couldn’t refuse Musk’s offer without violating its fiduciary responsibility to its shareholders.
Twitter has become the home base of blue-checkmark journalists.
Twitter is also where many people now get their news.
The establishment desperately wants control of all major information outlets, which is why Musk purchasing Twitter is such a problem.
The response from the establishment has been to smear Musk mercilessly in some hopes that he will be thwarted from taking control of the company.
And the latest smear comes courtesy of The New York Times, which drew back on Musk’s experiences as a child in apartheid-era South Africa.
The Times published a piece entitled Elon Musk Left a South Africa That Was Rife With Misinformation and White Privilege: The apartheid era created all-white enclaves littered with anti-Black government propaganda and sheltered from the atrocities of apartheid.
The Times argued that “Mr. Musk has heralded his purchase of Twitter as a victory for free speech, having criticized the platform for removing posts and banning users. It is unclear what role his childhood — coming up in a time and place in which there was hardly a free exchange of ideas and where government misinformation was used to demonize Black South Africans — may have played in that decision.”
The Times’s logic is incredibly tortured.
Musk’s belief in free speech, perhaps because of growing up in censorious apartheid, should be commended, not viewed with skepticism.
The Times spoke with a former classmate who said, “I think his ideas about free speech are very classic liberal and not nuanced.”
The Times is trying to convince people that Musk’s “not nuanced” views on free speech are tied to his “white privilege” background in South Africa.
That utterly makes no sense.
What the Left will not and cannot admit is that they are pro-censorship so long as it is in service of their political aims.
Within the Musk hit piece, The Times linked to a separate Musk hit piece titled Mr. Musk has embraced a flawed understanding of the free speech issue. That makes the deal particularly dangerous.
The most amusing part of the failed Times hit piece is that Musk overall came out looking good.
The Times reported that “Black schoolmates recall that [Musk] spent time with Black friends…Mr. Musk became friends with…Asher Mashudu [a black student], according to Mr. Mashudu’s brother, Nyadzani Ranwashe. One time at lunch, a white student used an anti-Black slur, and Mr. Musk chided the student, but then got bullied for doing so, Mr. Ranwashe said.”
The article also recounted a story from a Musk biography that stated he eschewed military service because he did not want to partake in the apartheid regime.
The Left don’t seem to realize that they look like the villains when they attack the guy trying to defend the principle of free speech.
Blue-checkmark journalists are ignoring one major bombshell report about Twitter
Establishment journalists are exasperated that Elon Musk might take away their shiny toy.
The company clearly has a left-wing bias, and they want to keep it that way.
And blue-checkmark journalists are ignoring one major bombshell report about Twitter.
The Left absolutely despises Project Veritas.
The organization does investigative journalism that uncovers corruption in major institutions like government, media, and Big Tech.
And Project Veritas caught another whopper when they exposed the bias inside of Twitter, the company Elon Musk is about to inherit.
An undercover reporter for Veritas caught Twitter Senior Engineer Siru Murugesan on candid camera admitting the company’s antipathy toward right-wingers; Murugesan described Twitter as “commie as [email protected]*k.”
He explained that Twitter employees were distraught over the news that Musk was buying Twitter because of his belief in free speech.
Murugesan explained, “Twitter does not believe in free speech…Elon believes in free speech…Our jobs are at stake. He’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist. Like, we’re all like commie as [email protected]*k.”
Most people on the Right either knew this or suspected this, but it’s another thing entirely to see a senior engineer openly admit it.
Murugesan also said employees tried to stop the Musk deal, adding, “We did all we could to, like, revolt against it. A lot of employees were revolting against it…I don’t know if two parties can truly coexist on one platform.”
Murugesan’s point about two parties coexisting is accentuated by the fact that Twitter’s current content policy explicitly discriminates against the conservative worldview.
For example, users on Twitter can get suspended and even permanently banned for “misgendering” trans people.
That is clear left-wing bias.
If the company were to take the free speech position, then Twitter would be infuriating the progressives who consider “misgendering” a trans person a form of violence.
In the case of Twitter, the tie always goes to the progressive.
But that could be changing with Musk in charge.
Murugesan continued by explaining how dismayed Twitter employees were.
Some threatened to quit, and some did publicly on social media.
Murugesan said, “They’re, like, ‘this would be my last day if it happens…a lot has changed.’ Like, we’re stress-eating a lot. Like, we’re all worried for our jobs.”
Now that a senior engineer admitted that Twitter is “commie as f*ck,” blue-checkmark journalists are going to have a much harder time pretending the platform is neutral.
Some progresive journalists even make the hilarious claim that Twitter is biased in favor of conservatives.
The United Nations is colluding with this US corporation to silence conservatives
The creepiest dystopian novels from decades back have nothing on reality these days.
Governments and international busybodies are wielding the word “misinformation” like a machete.
And now the United Nations is blatantly colluding with one huge US corporation to silence conservatives.
Twitter has announced its banning ads “pushing climate change denial” as Silicon Valley doubles down on censorship in the guise of battling “misinformation.”
We can only guess that if their friends jumped off a point on Diablo Range, tech executives would follow suit.
It’s not clear why some of the most brilliant minds on the planet are so incredibly insecure about their place in the world, but going all-in on the “scientific consensus” about climate change is the thing to do in the world of tech.
Ironically, they are supporting a political movement almost guaranteed to turn on them.
And now challenging partisan claims about climate change is on par with violence, profanity, and “exploitative” content according to Twitter.
“We believe that climate denialism shouldn’t be monetized on Twitter, and that misrepresentative ads shouldn’t detract from important conversations about the climate crisis,” the company bragged in a blog post.
And how will they decide when someone’s playing out of bounds? Ask the United Nations, of course.
Of course, that’s the same organization set on herding the entire planet’s population into urban areas while turning millions more acres into roadless wilderness areas.
No doubt, Twitter is playing into the hands of Klaus Schwab.
The German engineer is a central planner who wants to achieve nothing less than complete global domination.
But unlike historic figure heads who tried to conquer the world with armies, he’s using his pen to fight and letting others do his dirty work.
Schwab founded the World Economic Forum in 1971 and he’s been wheedling his way into controlling our lives ever since.
And we know exactly what he’s up to because he published his detailed plans in two volumes for all the world to know how we’re supposed to be thinking.
Elon Musk has said he’s against Schwab’s “Great Reset” and “Great Narrative.”
But even though he’s taken Twitter private, that’s no guarantee climate related sanity will return anytime soon.
Musk has a stake in keeping climate fanatics happy since they’re a big part of his Tesla customer base—especially important as electric car competitors have finally arrived on the scene.
One thing is for sure, climate activism has been presented as something as common sense as good old-fashioned thrift and stewardship.
But the reality is that it’s a vehicle some of the most malicious people on the planet are using to gain control over our lives.

Even Twitter’s Jack Dorsey now admits shutting down free speech is wrong
Twitter once described itself as “the free speech wing of the free speech party.”
But they’ve become more like the book burning Nazi Party they used to abhor.
Now even Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey realizes shutting down free speech on the internet is a bad idea.
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
An internet platform where people could, in a few characters, express themselves freely.
And others could like, or dislike, and respond.
And initially it was a great idea and it exploded.
But then like many good ideas, the socialists and Karnes got involved and things went from good to bad real quick.
It got so bad they began censoring and then even banned a sitting U.S. President because some people thought he was “mean.”
And Twitter then started banning political ideas and commentary they simply disagreed with – no matter how true or factual.
They even decided to work to get Joe Biden elected president by refusing to allow posts about the Hunter Biden laptop story, claiming it was “fake news.”
Well, now we know what we knew then – it was all too real and the execs at Twitter knew it too.
They knowingly banned tweets about Hunter Biden and even banned accounts, all in a concerted effort to influence the presidential election.
And it only got worse from there.
Twitter has banned U.S. Congressmen, shut down countless conservative accounts, and even removed posts that are 100% scientifically and factually true only because some pointy headed Karen fact checking groomer at Twitter didn’t like it.
Dorsey’s successor at Twitter, Parag Agrawal, has gone on a rampage of removing and locking out conservative and libertarian accounts over perceived “violations.”
And has even said it is not Twitter’s “role to be bound by the First Amendment.”
Now, about two years too late Jack Dorsey issued a big “oops.”
Dorsey says he has regrets about the social media monolith he co-founded.
Dorsey, who announced his plans to leave Twitter last November, recently tweeted that he feels guilty about the role his company has played in creating a centralized internet, where a small handful of companies and platforms control a huge proportion of users and their data.
With some 217 million daily users, Twitter certainly qualifies as one of those mega platforms, joining the other tech titans like Meta (Facebook), Alphabet (Google), and Amazon.
“I realize I’m partially to blame, and regret it,” Dorsey wrote in his April 2 tweet.
Well, Jack, it seems like it’s too little too late.
