(PresidentialInsider.com)- The attack on Elon Musk, a self-described free-speech absolutist, began the minute news of his purchase of a 9% share in Twitter surfaced. Musk has faced regulatory scrutiny, has been called a racist, and has also been accused of sexual misconduct. If the left thought they could push the world’s richest man around, they were mistaken.
He is now “out for blood.”
Twitter is best known for suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the 2020 presidential election. According to reports, Twitter also played a crucial role in perpetuating the Trump-Russia hoax, which began as an attempt to sway the 2016 election and ended up being the most extensive political fraud in American history.
Investigative reporting show Big Tech and legacy media, all of whom claim to be arbiters of truth, aided in advancing lies and concealment of facts to shape the national discourse. Their actions polarized the country, turning many Americans against former President Donald Trump and causing immense harm and division.
In 2016, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO was a Clinton voter and campaign fundraiser. Reports show that back then, like many Americans, he fell for her deception. Now, Musk is pushing back on the Trump-Russia hoax, which is still being spread on Twitter even though it has been debunked by the FBI.
With Hillary Clinton’s approval in October of 2016, Clinton’s campaign alerted the media to the fake allegation that the Trump organization had clandestine links to Russia’s Alfa Bank. The then-Democratic presidential nominee turned to Twitter to spread the phony information. For credibility, she provided a statement from Jake Sullivan, the current national security advisor.
Despite the fact that the information in the tweets is debunked, they are allowed to remain on Twitter’s platform. According to an online publication that observes Twitter activity, it was brought to Elon Musk’s attention by a Twitter user who asked him to look into it once he took control of it.
Having someone like Musk at the helm of a big tech platform would be beneficial. The value of a diverse range of viewpoints in the public debate cannot be overstated. His leadership will aid in overthrowing the left’s grip over American news.
