Elon Musk just backhanded Joe Biden with one move to defend free speech that has leftists fuming

Elon Musk is in the crosshairs of the radical Left for his massive success.

He’s not afraid to push back at the Left’s insanity.

And he just backhanded Joe Biden with one move to defend free speech that has leftists fuming.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has captured the world’s attention.

To put the screws to Vladimir Putin, the Big Tech titans have started to purge all things Russian from their services.

The moves started on social media sites, where state-sponsored Russian media outlets like Russia Today and Sputnik have been banned.

Apple and Google joined in to ban the outlets’ apps from their devices.

The Big Tech purge of everything Russian quickly spread beyond state-affiliated entities. 

Instead of cutting off officials in Putin’s government and Russian oligarchs, Netflix, AirBnB and others are cutting off all everyday Russian users from their services.

But not all of Silicon Valley and Big Tech are on board.

In a move seemingly harkening back to Western cultural influence’s role in winning the Cold War of his youth,Elon Musk has refused to drop the hammer.

Musk has become an increasingly larger thorn in the side of the Left.

Elon Musk has been portrayed as a heartless cartoon villain for his financial success by the likes of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

With the outbreak of war in Ukraine, he jumped at the opportunity to help. 

He sent his satellite internet service Starlink to help out the Ukrainians.

In some parts of the war-ravaged country it became the only non-Russian communication system left operational.

As one of the major sources for internet access in the country, the pressure grew on him to drop the hammer on Russian media.

But he made a surprising announcement that had the Left seething.

On social media he said, “Starlink has been told by some governments (not Ukraine) to block Russian news sources. We will not do so unless at gunpoint. Sorry to be a free speech absolutist. ”

A user replied to him that “Russian ‘news’ sources are propaganda.”

Musk replied, “All news sources are partially propaganda, some more than others.”

Leftists were seething and quickly attacked Musk on social media. 

Musk became one of the few major company CEOs not cutting Russian – and in Starlink’s case, Ukrainian – users’ access to their goods and services.

Whether or not the Left’s calls to ban everything Russian are about banning Russian or having the power to ban everything is a slippery slope – especially when it comes to free speech.

Banning Russia Today sets up Facebook or Twitter to potentially ban Fox News once the justification that whatever they decide is “propaganda” or “misinformation” becomes the standard to shut down a media source. 

Especially with the Left hoping to use any precedent they can get to wipe Conservatives off of the internet.
