(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – If nothing more comes of Elon Musk’s threatened takeover of Twitter so that he can make it a free speech platform instead of a liberal hideout that kicks conservatives to the curb, it’ll still be a worthwhile move on his part as he has brilliantly exposed the leftist elites who are melting down over the thought of Twitter being a site that doesn’t censor and ban conservatives like former President Donald Trump.
As Breitbart notes in “Twitter’s Blue Checkmark Brigade Freaks Out over Elon Musk’s Buyout Plan”:
“Liberals, progressives, and establishment pundits were in meltdown mode this morning after billionaire SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the richest man in the world, stated his intention to buy 100 percent of Twitter, transform it into a private company, and restore free speech on the platform.” [emphasis added]
Two illustrative examples:
“Notorious neoconservative warmonger and diehard NeverTrump pundit Max Boot repeated what is likely to be a recurring argument from establishment mouthpieces: that free speech is dangerous to democracy, and that content moderation (censorship) is actually real freedom. In Max Boot’s world, there’s no democracy or freedom unless speech is controlled by a tiny minority of unaccountable elites.
I am frightened by the impact on society and politics if Elon Musk acquires Twitter. He seems to believe that on social media anything goes. For democracy to survive, we need more content moderation, not less.

“Progressive author and Daily Beast columnist David Rothkopf threatened to quit the platform if Elon Musk took over. “We are the assets of Twitter,” declared the man behind the 260,000-follower account.”
We are the assets of @Twitter. If we walk out the door the moment @ElonMusk takes it over, it is nothing. And, I can tell you, I for one, have no desire to participate in the social engineering experiment of that particular out-of-control megalomaniac.
