White Hats this week chimed in on billionaire Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, saying it was too soon to gauge whether Musk would bring back deplatformed voices and prove himself to be a “free-speech absolutist,” as Musk has referred to himself.
Conservatives across the board went wild with glee when Musk posted an image of himself carrying a porcelain sink into Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters last week, and then gave the axe to nearly half of the social media giant’s 7,500 employees, including its liberal leadership—former CEO Parag Agrawal, former CFO Ned Segal, and former lead council Vijaya Gadde, a vile woman who had fought to deplatform thousands of conservative voices.
Minutes after Musk took ownership of Twitter, House Representative Marjorie Taylor Green celebrated the announcement, saying that Musk would usher in a new era of free speech and punish the administration’s disinformation. In fact, that happened: The White House deleted a Tweet crediting illegitimate President Joe Biden for increasing social security payments in 2023. Runaway inflation, not Biden, prompted the 8.7% cost-of-living adjustment.
Nonetheless, White Hats are warning conservative lawmakers against saddling the Musk horse before they are ready to ride. Musk has said it will take months to set up a new Twitter governance board, and stated persons who have been banned will not receive a pardon until his new board reviews petitions for reinstatement. Some voices unwilling to wait for judgment made new accounts, only to find themselves summarily and at once re-banned.
“Elon is the wealthiest boy with the most toys, and Twitter is his newest toy,” a source in Gen. David H. Berger’s office told Real Raw News. “While we’d like to think Elon will control it responsibly, he has a history of capricious behavior and waffling. He should’ve immediately reactivated President Trump’s account, but he hasn’t. And it doesn’t matter if Trump want to use it.”
He quoted Gen. Berger as saying, “Elon is a rich, professional troll who straddles the fence to instigate conflict between parties.”
Musk has described himself as a “bored isolationist” who enjoys sowing seeds of disharmony. The Democrats now pillorying Musk seem to forget that he had in 2008 and 2012 voted for Barrack Hussein Obama. Musk refuses to specify whom he cast a vote for in 2016: “I voted for the right man or the right woman,” he has answered ambiguously in interviews.
Furthermore, White Hats say Musk’s friendship with administration officials including Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken are cause for concern.
“One day he says he’ll stop funding Star Link in Ukraine; the next day he says, oh, my bad, yeah, I’ll keep funding it. This is pure Musk trolling behavior,” our source said.
The military says its proverbial jury is sequestered and wants to know exactly where Musk’s loyalties lie.
“Unfortunately, he’s a very influential person. He’s smart and rich, and because of that the media hangs on his every tweet or statement. We’ve yet to see concrete proof Musk will be on the side of freedom,” our source said.
