Donald Trump exposed how corrupt the Democrat Media Complex is.
The problem has only gotten worse over the past few years.
Now, Democrats are doing everything they can to stop one man from ruining their propaganda machine.
Tech billionaire Elon Musk has the Democrats panicking.
His offer to buy Twitter for $43 billion and take it private has exposed their desperation for the social media giant to maintain its liberal bias.
First, the Left cheered when they learned that massive Wall Street asset management firm Vanguard upped its stake in the company.
The Wall Street Journal reported that “Vanguard Group recently upped its stake in the social-media platform and is now the company’s largest shareholder, bumping Mr. Musk out of the top spot…Vanguard disclosed on April 8 that it now owns 82.4 million shares of Twitter, or 10.3% of the company, according to the most recent publicly available filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.”
Liberals also celebrated Saudi Prince Alawaleed bin Talal rejecting Musk’s offer publicly.
He tweeted, “I don’t believe that the proposed offer by [Musk] ($54.20) comes close to the intrinsic value of Twitter given its growth prospects…Being one of the largest & long-term shareholders of Twitter, [Kingdom Holding Company] & I reject this offer.”
Next, Twitter employed a defensive tactic known as a poison pill in an attempt to block Musk.
“Shareholders’ rights will become exercisable if an entity, person or group acquires beneficial ownership of 15% or more of Twitter’s outstanding common stock in a transaction not approved by the board. In the event that the rights become exercisable, existing Twitter shareholders — except for the person, entity or group triggering the plan — would be entitled to purchase additional shares of common stock at a discount. Musk currently has a 9.2% stake in Twitter,” Fox Business reported ahead of Twitter’s decision to invoke the poison pill.
Meanwhile, following Vanguard’s recent acquisitions, NPR reports Twitter appears to be actively looking for a possible so-called “white knight” to emerge.
“Twitter has hired Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase as advisors, and analysts say the company and its bankers are likely already evaluating other potential suitors” NPR reported.
Each step of the way, the so-called mainstream media and political elites have been fretting the possibility of a Twitter takeover by Musk.
Clintonworld lackey Robert Reich called Musk’s “libertarian” views of the internet “dangerous.”

Never-Trump warmonger Max Boot said that democracy cannot stand without censorship.
Boot tweeted, “I am frightened by the impact on society and politics if Elon Musk acquires Twitter. He seems to believe that on social media anything goes. For democracy to survive, we need more content moderation, not less.”

Journalist Jeff Jarvis even compared Musk buying Twitter to the rise of Hitler.
We sure went quickly from Twitter can do “whatever it wants to” because “that is its freedom of expression” to living in “the last evening in a Berlin nightclub at the twilight of Weimar Germany,” @jeffjarvis. pic.twitter.com/D7at9ZEMfv

Musk has exposed the Left’s desire for Twitter to remain a propaganda machine.
Under normal conditions, his offer would be a financial slam dunk.
“If the current Twitter board takes actions contrary to shareholder interests, they would be breaching their fiduciary duty. The liability they would thereby assume would be titanic in scale.”

The Left have sacrificed all of their so-called principles in favor of censorship.
So let me get this straight: The progressive left is now rooting FOR Saudi Arabia, Wall Street, Vanguard / Blackrock and AGAINST free speech, liberty and the dude who makes electric cars and is going to Mars?

If Musk succeeds in taking over Twitter, everyone could get to see just how deep the establishment rot runs.
