Dog Whistling Over Musk Twitter Purchase Shows Left Fears Losing Censorship Grip

When Elon Musk made his offer in April to buy Twitter for $54.20 a share, which amounts to $43 billion, many were thrilled, including myself. While there is much wrong with social media, it has become a sort of townhall allowing for important discussions, connections, and information. That is, until leftists took control making it a platform that was promoting and pushing one way of thinking while censoring those who dared to not conform.

After Musk’s initial effort, he attempted to terminate the deal when, he argued, Twitter refused to be transparent about the number of fake and bot accounts on the platform. Twitter sued, but now Musk has reversed course, offering the same deal, and the judge has postposed the trial until October 28 to allow the parties to work out the deal to acquire the company.

Two of the most famous acts of Twitter political interference involve President Trump being banned, and the platform infamously censoring the New York Post’s Hunter Biden story and suspending the newspaper’s account in the process. However, multiple conservatives have also been banned or suspended. The throttling of conservative’s tweets, limiting the reach of articles for various conservative news outlets, among other censorship efforts, have been a mainstay for the Twitter bureaucracy.

Now, with Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook confirming that they censored the Hunter Biden story due to FBI outreach, we are getting a more complete picture of the Biden administration’s role in what some say is collusion with Big Tech to censor conservatives by proxy.

The left’s reaction to the Musk takeover looking even more likely, confirms that they have relied on Twitter to control the public conversation that influenced the outcome of elections. “Get ready for Elon Musk to turn Twitter into a right-wing cesspool that could hand Trump 2024” blares a frantic Vanity Fair headline. NBC News reporter Ben Collins had his own meltdown on Twitter saying the quiet thing out loud about the political impact: “For those of you asking: Yes, I do think this site can and will change pretty dramatically if Musk gets full control over it. No, there is no immediate replacement. If it gets done early enough, based on the people he’s aligned with, yes, it could actually affect midterms.”

Fox News reported on the open discussion amongst liberal media on Twitter about how right Collins was and how much things would change: “NPR editor Neela Banerjee retweeted the thread writing, ‘As usual, Ben Collins provides a useful thread on the broader implications for the rest of us of a Musk takeover of Twitter.’ Others also agreed with Collins on the risk posed by Musk purchasing Twitter, ‘Be afraid, be actually afraid,’ former Politico Magazine editor Garrett M. Graff wrote.”

By revealing sentiments from people who justified the banning of Trump and so many others in the name of “saving democracy” and stopping “election interference,” they openly admit that current liberal management losing control of Twitter would impact elections. This reveals that their control has done just that.

There are a few things that could happen if in fact this deal comes to completion. For many people the most exciting of which is a return of former President Donald Trump to the platform. Musk said he thinks the suspension of Trump was wrong and that permanent bans should be rare. Earlier this year Trump said he would not go back to Twitter and would stay exclusively with his Truth Social platform. One could argue, however, it’s in his best interest to have his voice everywhere considering the left continues to smear him and his family, and relies on being able to limit his ability to be heard.

In the meantime, Musk’s tweets announcing his renewed intention to buy Twitter allude to something much bigger is in the works. The day after his announcement he tweeted, “Buying Twitter is an accelerant to creating X, the everything app.” The New York Times reported on Musk’s previous complimentary remarks about WeChat, a platform owned by a Chinese technology giant. “’In China, WeChat is used by more than a billion people as an all-in-one social media, instant messaging and mobile payment app. Used to order food, hail cabs and find news, it is sewn into the fabric of daily life.’ Mr. Musk has said that if a similar app were used by enough people worldwide to communicate, it could establish a payment system as well. ‘I think such an app would be really useful. And just the utility of sort of a spam-free thing where you could make comments, you could post videos — I think it’s important for content creators to have a revenue share,’ Mr. Musk said on a podcast in May,” reported the Times.

Ironically, it’s Twitter that has shown us the danger of important aspects of our lives being under the control of bureaucrats and Big Tech. When partisans control aspects of our lives it reminds us that becoming exclusively reliant on one internet platform could be very dangerous for our freedom and even our national security. It doesn’t have to be this way, but it could only work if a platform is in the hands of someone known for their commitment to free speech and understands the cancer of the progressive “woke” machine threatening our freedom in general.

Musk is that person, and there will always be risks in this technological age, it’s certainly not going away. We cannot surrender the technology front to the scourge of the left. We must engage to ensure the threat of progressive and wokeist control of government and technology is crushed while reinforcing the American commitment to genuine personal freedom.

The left has always been most comfortable when they are the ONLY voice being allowed to be heard. Tolerance of opposing thought is only acceptable when they have the total power to silence any and all opposing points of view. So of course the purchase of Twitter, which has been a valuable tool by the left to create various narratives beneficial to the left over the years, by Elon Musk now threatens that monopoly in ways they find uncomfortable.

Obviously based on the internal conversations of various Twitter employees recorded by PV and other employees coming forward themselves, Musk will have to do substantial house cleaning to put this company in a position to fulfill his desire for a more balanced and true medium for a public forum. Simply acquiring control of the company is only the start. I would imagine the replacement of personnel will have to be nearly company-wide. People simply being allowed to take off for weeks or months at a time, with little to no notice, cannot be tolerated in any sort of real business. Then Musk will have to find a way to make this company a profitable entity. Something is was never able to accomplish before for a multitude of reasons. So we won’t see an end result for quite some time.

So, we are supposed to believe Zuckerberg now? Look what he did to throw the last election? Now he’s a good guy? I’m skeptical. What does he and his democrat buddies have up their sleeve. Have we forgotten he’s a Rothchild?

No domestic apps nor any international apps that are designed to keep track of all that you may do.

Whats so sad to me is that when we were all young finding alternative news was a chore if not impossible. We all had three channels. Whatever cronkite and huntley/brinkley said was reality. Now there’re a multitude of sources available, but they’ve been demonized by the commie media and the 36% that still support the administration wouldnt be caught dead looking at them. Hypnotized dems self censor, in other words. We’re thus forced to depend on people with shifting values, independent s and moderates to win elections. These are the folks who proudly claim they vote for the best candidate, not the party. They demand perfection in an imperfect world.

The biggest mystery to me is how a company that creates NOTHING but words is worth $44B in the first place! I was booted off Twitter in 2016 for “violating community standards” by posting a NY times article about Clinton and Uranium One and don’t miss one minute of accessing that cesspool of leftism.

Hey AMAC, please tell me what was wrong with my response to Robert Zuccaro. You folks really need to decide whether you are free speech or are just interested in towing the RINO line as long as it doesn’t offend the Democrats.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg confirming that the traitor-run platform censored damning fraud puppet pResident’s druggy (and complicit in nefarious dealings) bagman son info…wait for it…due to FBI outreach! Nothing more than more proof of the fraud puppet administration’s role in collusion to censor, and to effect the outcome of elections. This would of course be a felony and all parties responsible would be wearing orange jumpsuits after a fair trial … if the traitor LEOS and activist judges weren’t mostly Commie/Globalist DemoNcrts and aiding/abetting RINOs, that we have obama/biden weaponized and corrupted alphabet gov. departments, and their PR Commie/Globalist owned/run MSM propaganda-spewing expletives …all hell bent on destroying our Constitutional Republic.

Since we are getting a social media outlet that competes with Mark Suckerburg, maybe we can establish a federal law enforcement agency to counter the DemonRat FBI.
