Why does it take a private citizen to do what our taxpayer funded congress should do? Of course, I’m talking about Elon Musk moving to take over Twitter and make it a free speech platform. What kind of company would silence a sitting president while canceling anyone who speaks out against our current illegitimate regime? That company would be Twitter.
Elon Musk is one of the richest men in the world. He sells electric cars; he sends and returns people to and from outer space in his rockets. He is also from South Africa. So why is it left up to him to try to supply a free speech platform to everyone?
This could have been done years ago by our so-called representatives in congress. I’m referring to the famous “section 230”. What does it do? It indemnifies (protects) social media platforms from being sued by individuals who have been injured by their shameful tactics.
The answer, of course, as to why our wonderful congress hasn’t removed Section 230 is that, with few exceptions, our House and Senate is populated with self-serving crooks who receive lots of money from these social media titans.
Let’s be honest. Let’s say what we all know and despise. Most politicians are rotten people who don’t give a rat’s ass about the people as long as they are raking in millions of illegal “contributions”.
And since we have a House and Senate full of u slimeballs, it becomes the job of concerned citizens like Elon Musk, who have tons of money, to do what our “go along to get along” congress should have done long ago.
Musk is a person of action. And those same slimeballs in government will do everything possible to keep him from taking over Twitter.
But we have no democracy now without free speech. It is the bedrock of a free country. Social Media has become more powerful than atom bombs or supersonic missiles. Because it shapes everything. So we wish Mister Musk the best. He may be the savior of our nation. God works in mysterious ways. I think this is one of them.
