Censorship of conservative voices has gotten out of hand.
But Elon Musk buying Twitter has changed the game.
And one NBA player made a statement about Musk that left Democrats speechless.
Twitter has not been a strong money-making venture, but leftists understand the power of the platform.
That’s why they’re freaking out over the prospect of Elon Musk gaining control of it.
Twitter is where blue-checkmark journalists congregate, and Twitter “trends” can drive major news stories.
Twitter is also controlled by the establishment left, so it can suppress voices and stories that present counter-narrative opinions on hot-button issues.
That’s why Elon Musk buying the platform and promising to uphold free speech is such a threat to the left.
And NBA center Enes Kanter Freedom called out the left for their obvious hypocrisy on the issues.
Why did no one care when
Zuckerberg and Gates bought thousands of acres of land
Bezos buys Washington Post
when Elon bought Twitter to make it a free speech platform for everyone then now people are saying thats Fascism?
Help me out!
Trying to understand it

It’s telling that the so-called mainstream media have been throwing a hissy fit over Musk purchasing Twitter, but as Kanter Freedom pointed out, they said nothing when Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post or when Bill Gates bought up untold acres of farmland.
It seems at least somewhat more concerning that an eccentric billionaire who believes the planet is overpopulated and people should stop eating red meat just bought up a heap of farmland.
Musk’s biggest “sin” is not being a down-the-line leftist.
Because he has some libertarian views and does not virtue-signal “woke” talking points, he is on the left’s enemies list.
That was not always the case.
He was once celebrated by liberals.

He even appeared in Marvel’s Iron Man 2.
How did all the blog posts and threads about Elon Musk miss the fact that he had a cameo in Iron Man 2? 👀#TIL pic.twitter.com/bLFfDH9dyH

If Musk were a dedicated leftist, his purchase of Twitter would be celebrated.
But because Musk believes in free speech, his control of Twitter is “problematic.”
