Still willing to ignore the advantages that big tech, mainstream media, and social media has given them over the last ten years; liberals are freaking out over Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter.
Because it might level the playing field for conservatives.
What if there was a social media outlet where we were actually allowed to speak the truth instead of being censored by people who don’t agree with us?
Liberals simply won’t allow that.
Now that Twitter might shift away from the leftist echochamber it has been, people like Elizabeth Warren want the rules changed.
And she wants them changed NOW.
“We need to make two big changes,” Warren said. “The first one is we need a wealth tax in America. Let’s talk about how Elon’s purchase here was subsidized by tens of millions of people who have paid their taxes every year. The second part is we need rules of the road for big tech. But ultimately, what all of this boils down to is power. Who’s going to have the power in our country? Are we going to make these decisions as a democracy, or is this going to be Elon Musk all by himself off in a room, a bazillionaire who just plays by his own set of rules, and that’s really what’s at stake here.”
She was never concerned about freedom of speech when her country’s president was being kicked off the platform because the CEO didn’t agree with Trump’s views.
That was fine, but this is where Warren draws the line.
“We need rules of the road, and look. There are going to be rules. Like I said, the only question is will Elon Musk decide all of the rules by himself in a darkroom, or is it going to be the case that we’re going to decide this as a country? We’re going to make rules in a democracy. Rules of the road could help facilitate that kind of competition and frankly, break the stranglehold of someone like Elon Musk coming in and owning the whole thing.”
Warren doesn’t want anyone who isn’t liberal controlling the media.
I could have told you that before Musk bought Twitter.
