Extra Dems Goal Musk as He Lets Some Banned Folks Again, Drops New Speech Coverage – RedState

Must read

One of many issues that made President Donald Trump so efficient when he was in workplace was his willingness to face within the breach towards the Democrats, come hell or excessive water — as we noticed with the border, irrespective of how a lot he was attacked. Not everybody would have the form of persistence and plenty of would possibly crumble.

Proper now, Elon Musk is standing within the breach at Twitter and that’s inflicting an enormous liberal meltdown.

At the same time as liberals are predicting the demise of Twitter, they continue to be on Twitter, and Twitter utilization rises. And the liberals are fleeing the corporate, which may solely be a very good factor for speech on the location sooner or later. As our pals at Twitchy famous, what Musk is probably going doing is “whaling and culling” — pushing the envelope till he solely has the most efficient individuals remaining. Then, if he finds he wants extra individuals after the culling, he’ll rent from the ample variety of tech individuals on the market. Whereas there’s quite a lot of concentrate on Twitter, many tech of us are being let go from quite a lot of corporations, so he could have a big provide from which to decide on.

However Democrats maintain making an attempt to rope Musk in.

I wrote about how Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) colluded with a Washington Submit reporter to impersonate him, then complain that Musk was permitting “impersonations.” This, regardless that Musk has spoken out towards impersonations and moved rapidly to cease such issues. Now, Markey is ramping up the threats, joined by different Democrats to name on the FTC to go after Twitter.

Seven Democratic senators despatched a letter on Thursday to the Federal Commerce Fee, warning that Twitter, now owned by Elon Musk, was performing in disregard of customers and urging the company to analyze any breach of a consent decree that the FTC inked with Twitter.

The lawmakers, together with Senators Richard Blumenthal and Elizabeth Warren, requested the company to contemplate enforcement actions towards the corporate and towards particular person executives the place acceptable.

“In latest weeks, Twitter’s new Chief Government Officer, Elon Musk, has taken alarming steps which have undermined the integrity and security of the platform, and introduced new options regardless of clear warnings these modifications can be abused for fraud, scams, and harmful impersonation,” the lawmakers stated in a letter to FTC Chair Lina Khan.

Right here’s Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) making it clear that they’re going to be going after him — they’re that afraid that they now not have management.

Musk has stated that he needs free speech on Twitter and he’s gone a good distance on the market, regardless of assaults from liberals. Whereas he’s not a conservative, he’s infinitely higher than who we had in command of Twitter. You realize that, by how mad liberals are at Musk and the way determined they’re to get him into line.

On Friday, he proved he needs a special, extra open surroundings, bringing again of us who’ve been suspended, just like the Babylon Bee and Jordan Peterson.

In being introduced again, the Bee was not required to do away with the tweet that precipitated them to get suspended.

There’s no phrase but on Trump, however presumably, that will be on the horizon shortly, significantly since he simply declared for 2024.

Musk has additionally proven that he’s prepared to take heed to individuals, and adapt, as he has finished in permitting individuals again on the location. It’s fairly one thing to see the proprietor of an organization paying a lot consideration to the opinion of the individuals.

However Musk is now listening to from lots of people who’ve an opinion about his newest remark regarding a brand new speech coverage.

New Twitter coverage is freedom of speech, however not freedom of attain.

Destructive/hate tweets can be max deboosted & demonetized, so no adverts or different income to Twitter.

You received’t discover the tweet until you particularly search it out, which isn’t any totally different from remainder of Web.

Notice, this is applicable simply to the person tweet, not the entire account

The issue with that is that you’d nonetheless have somebody deciding what was “unfavourable/hate” so what qualifies would depend upon who’s making the choices. That’s an issue for those who’re speaking about freedom of speech. What makes it totally different from what Twitter had been doing is that it’s punishing the tweet, not the particular person, the particular person’s account doesn’t get banned or shadowbanned. But it surely naturally raised quite a lot of questions and he bought flooded with issues from all sides of the aisle. Given the response, I’m pondering that we’re going to see a refinement of that “coverage.”
