Decipher the enigma of Elon Musk's duplicitous conduct towards free speech on Twitter.
In the world of Gotham City, there exists a character known as Two-Face. This man, whose birth name in the DC Comics was Harvey Dent, presents one face to the world while hiding a darker, more sinister side.This duality, this duplicity, is not confined to the realm of comic books. It has found a real-life embodiment in the figure of Elon Musk, the tech billionaire who recently took the helm of Twitter.
Elon Musk, the man who promised to champion free speech, has shown his other face. He has revealed himself to be a master of manipulation, a puppeteer pulling the strings of censorship while wearing the mask of a free speech advocate. His actions against The Daily Wire, Steve Bannon’s War Room, Alex Jones, Nick Fuentes, and Kanye West, all significant voices in the ongoing ideological battles in America, expose his true colors.
Jeremy Boreing, a prominent figure in conservative media and the co-founder of The Daily Wire, recently took to Twitter to expose a troubling incident. In a thread that gripped the attention of his followers, Boreing detailed how Twitter, under Elon Musk's leadership, had reneged on a deal with The Daily Wire. The platform had initially agreed to premiere their film 'What is a Woman?' for free, only to backtrack citing instances of 'misgendering'. Boreing's thread was a riveting exposé, revealing how Twitter had offered enthusiastic support, only to label the film as 'hateful conduct' after viewing it.
Musk's decision to censor The Daily Wire over a documentary on the biological definition of a woman was not an accident, as he claimed. It was a calculated move, a clear indication of his stance on free speech. The notion that Musk made a mistake is laughable. It's comparable to a skilled pianist hitting a wrong note on purpose, as if the flawless melody was momentarily disrupted by chance. The debate over the definition of a woman is not a debate at all. It's a biological fact, a truth that cannot be altered or denied. To argue otherwise is to engage in a futile and embarrassing exercise. It's a weak position, one that undermines the very foundation of truth and reality.
The tech mogul's appointment of Linda Yaccarino, a figure known for her authoritarian tendencies and her affinity for woke ideology, as the new CEO of Twitter, was a clear warning sign.
Authoritarianism seeks to consolidate power within a limited group, minimizing its distribution among the masses, whereas populism advocates for power to be widely shared among as many people as possible. "Woke" can be understood as the act of accepting a non-divine authority to shape one's moral compass, relinquishing the sole reliance on God for guidance in defining one's values and beliefs.
Billboard Chris, a canadian political activist stated that, "Yaccarino, who spent $100 million on social justice initiatives while at NBC and propagated government authoritarian propaganda, is not here to improve the user experience. She's here to transform Twitter into a 'safe space', a platform that panders to advertisers and suppresses dissenting voices."
Musk's claim that you have 'freedom of speech but not freedom of reach' is a chilling echo of authoritarian rhetoric. It's a cleverly disguised attempt to minimize the impact of free speech, reducing it to a whisper in the wind. This is not the stance of a free speech advocate. This is the stance of a man who wants to control the narrative, to dictate what can and cannot be said.
Musk's decision to rescue The Babylon Bee, a satirical news site that was suspended for misgendering, was not a noble act of defending truth. It was a strategic move, a way to maintain a good relationship with his allies. It's a classic Two-Face move, showing one face to the world while hiding his true intentions.
Elon Musk is a man of contradictions. He presents himself as a champion of free speech while simultaneously suppressing dissenting voices. He promises to uphold the principles of free speech, but his actions tell a different story. He is not a hero. He is not a defender of truth. He is a man who wears two faces, and it's time we recognized him for what he truly is.
