Twitter’s new owner, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, fired back at his critics in Hollywood, the Dem establishment, and the media as they completely overreacted to the news he was buying the social media platform.
The reaction from the left to the news that Musk wants to protect the one thing that separates us, and guarantees we will always beat, China, Russia, and the rest of the authoritarian regimes – our fundamental freedoms like free speech – has been an eye-opener.
Musk shamed his critics: “The extreme antibody reaction from those who fear free speech says it all. By “free speech”, I simply mean that which matches the law. I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law.
“If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect.

“Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people.”
Below are just some of the reactions from the left.
“Elon musk buying Twitter is a dream come true for white nationalists,” wrote left-wing commentator Dean Obeidallah. “After all musk is from the former apartheid country of South Africa which the white supremacists idolize.”
“Wonder if Elon musk will copy the apartheid rules of his home country South Africa and give us check marks based on our skin color?” Obeidallah added. “The whiter the check mark the more rights you have on Twitter.”
“Now that Elon Musk is buying Twitter, the question for all of us is: Will he allow a Criminal who used this platform to lie and spread disinformation to try to overthrow the US Government to return and continue his Criminal activity?” wrote Hollywood star Rob Reiner. “And if he does, how do we combat it?” he added.
Bette Midler said:
“Oh. God. “The biggest liar in the universe” will undoubtedly be back on Twitter to destroy what’s left of world-wide democracy. “Tragic.”
MSNBC’s Ari Melber said: “If you own all of Twitter, or Facebook, or what have you, you don’t have to explain yourself.
“You don’t even have to be transparent. You could secretly ban one party’s candidate, or all of its candidates, all of its nominees.
“Or you could just secretly turn down the reach of their stuff and turn up the reach of something else and the rest of us might not even find out about it until after the election.
“Elon Musk says this is all to help people because he is just a free speech, philosophically clear open-minded, helper.”
