HUNTER: Here's What Really Scares Democrats & Liberals About Elon Musk Buying Twitter

Liberals & Democrats never explain why they say something – They don’t have to, they aren’t ever asked

By Derek Hunter

Democrats are terrified. Imagine your political future being dependent on your ability to prevent your opponent from expressing themselves. That seems to be what Democrats are counting on, since every indication is their policies and the resulting inflation and supply chain shortages are wearing thin with the American public. The alternative would be to defend their failures and even they, with all the help of the left-wing media complex, can’t polish that steaming pile. That’s what scares them so much about what Elon Musk is proposing.

Musk isn’t a conservative, and it’s pretty clear he’s not even talking exclusively about the United States. (Yes, free speech is an issue around the world, but the left now hates him just the same.)

John Dean, the Watergate felon turned liberal darling after he turned on Richard Nixon, tweeted, “Not sure I am interested in Twitter if Elon Musk owns it.”

Why? He didn’t say – because liberals never say. They don’t have to, they aren’t asked.

Angry dwarf and former Clinton administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, tweeted,
“Elon Musk's real goal has nothing to do with the freedom of others. His goal is the freedom to wield enormous power without having to be accountable to laws and regulations, shareholders, or market competition — which is why he's dead set on owning Twitter.”

Bobby has embraced full communism since leaving his Clinton Cabinet post and, of course, becoming a tenured professor at UC Berkeley – so it’s not surprising he would project his goals on someone expressly advocating the opposite of them.

It’s what Nazis do.

These people are freaking out, showing the world what they really are. How can anyone be so afraid of other people speaking freely?
Here’s something very telling: The totalitarian regimes around the world that work tirelessly to silence dissent in their countries aren’t as upset about the Twitter adopting a free speech mission statement as Democrats in the United States are, and that includes China.

Musk controls hundreds of satellites orbiting the globe that provide internet everywhere, allowing, for example, the people of Ukraine to continue to communicate and get video out of the atrocities Russia is committing AFTER the physical infrastructure of the internet had been wiped out. Imagine that everywhere. 

That is what everyone should be celebrating, but progressives have no love for free speech.

Even the ACLU, a group that made its name fighting for that right against government intrusion, decided to publicly abandon that fight for speech they don’t approve of, has no interest in the concept anymore.

The American left is now on the side of China, Russia, and every other despotic regime seeking to limit communication of its citizenry, only they’re doing it in the name of “compassion” for “marginalized communities” and various people sensibilities, not the naked power-grab those foreign governments don’t try to pretend aren’t their motivations. 

The end result is the same – monopolistic control over what can and can’t be said – and it always benefits those in power, exclusively. 

Meanwhile, Democrats are busy accusing everyone interested in unfettered communication between human beings of being Hitler. I wasn’t alive during Hitler’s time, but I have not read a single history book where he is called a champion of free speech. If such a thing exists, perhaps Democrats could point it out?

They do, however, share a lot of the same “progressive” policy goals, as you would expect with a group calling itself the “National Socialist German Workers Party.”

All the “wrong,” which is to say all the right people are upset at the prospect of Elon Musk buying Twitter, with many threatening to quit if he does. As a proponent of the free market, I welcome their departure. As a believer in turnabout being the fairest of plays, I would invite those upset to the point that they simply can’t bring themselves to tweet ever again to build their own Twitter if they can’t handle the direction of the existing one.
The lengths to which someone will go to silence their political opponents – not defeat them in a debate or at the polls – tells you everything you need to know about modern Democrats.

Conservatives would give the left megaphones, because we believe the more normal people hear them the more repulsed they become. The Left wants to silence us because they’re afraid the more people hear us, the more will join our ranks.

It’s a choice between a microphone and a gag.

If nothing else, this move by Elon Musk made that difference crystal clear.
