(Tea Party PAC) – After Elon Musk made a massive deal to acquire Twitter, leftists have been losing their minds, having one meltdown after another, whining about how Musk is essentially going to ruin Twitter by restoring free speech to Americans.
Now their worst nightmare is coming true.
During an keynote interview at FT Live’s “Future of the Car” Tuesday, Musk has announced he plans to reinstate President Trump to Twitter after he officially takes control of the company in a few months.
He described the ban against Trump as “morally wrong” and even said the permanent ban is “flat-out stupid.”
We couldn’t agree more.
During the interview, Musk asserted that he objects to permanent bans on Twitter in general.
“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots or spam, scam accounts,” he said.
“I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the country.”
“Banning Trump from Twitter didn’t end Trump’s voice. It will amplify it among the right,” Musk continued.
“And this is why it is morally wrong and flat-out stupid.”
Despite Musk declaring he would end the ban on Trump, there’s a good chance President Trump won’t even be interested in returning to the platform. Trump has asserted that he plans to stick with his own personal social media platform, Truth Social, and he has still been able to communicate with his supporters using other apps such as Telegram.
That being said, it’s pretty hard to imagine Trump passing up the opportunity to return to Twitter even if just for the sake of rubbing leftist’s noses in it. It would be a glorious return and one that would surely send leftists over the edge.
Musk noted that the political segregation of the internet is bad for democracy and that the public needs a neutral forum where they can discuss opposing views.
The problem is that the left has become so polarized and so emotionally charged that it’s almost entirely impossible to have any kind of reasonable, rational discussion with them.
Anyone who’s ever tried on social media knows that the insults start flying almost immediately which are accompanied by wild claims, establishment media talking points and blatant misinformation.
These people are thoroughly brainwashed.
While a neutral platform is certainly needed, the bigger problem is there has been zero accountability for those in the mainstream media. They can literally say whatever they want with no consequences.
Americans have fortunately woken up to their antics but the disinformation they spread has had an overwhelming impact on civil discord in America.
Restoring Trump to Twitter would certainly be a victory for free speech in the US but leftists will never see it that way.
No matter who owns and operates Twitter, you can expect leftists to continue throwing Twitter tantrums when things don’t go their way. We’re looking forward to many, many more of those come 2024 when President Trump runs for office again.
