Elon Musk just rankled everybody on the Left when he purchased Twitter.
Democrats are already plotting their revenge against him.
And Jen Psaki just issued one chilling threat to Musk.
Elon Musk did it.
He bought Twitter with the goal of taking the company private and fixing many of the problems ailing the platform, most notably its tenuous relationship with free speech.
And it’s telling that leftists are furious over it.
They never really believed in free speech.
Leftist understand real free speech could be the biggest threat to their long-held cultural power, so they’ve been hell-bent on limiting the speech of their ideological opponents.
In recent years, Republicans broached the issue of regulating Big Tech and social media like Twitter because of its lack of free speech and blatant anti-conservative bias.
But Democrats want to regulate Twitter because they fear Musk will allow more free speech.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki already insinuated that regulation is on the table.
When asked about Musk’s acquisition of Twitter during a briefing, Psaki responded, “What I can tell you as a general matter, no matter who owns or runs Twitter, the president has long been concerned about the power of large social media platforms, what they … the power they have over our everyday lives, has long argued that tech platforms must be held accountable for the harms they cause.”
When Psaki talks about “harm,” she means not censoring speech she and other establishment players don’t like.
For example, in 2015, then-German Chancellor Angela Merkel pressured Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to rein in comments that were against the mass migration wave that hit Europe.
Psaki continued, “[Biden] has been a strong supporter of fundamental reforms to achieve that goal, including reforms to Section 230, enacting antitrust reforms, requiring more transparency, and more, and he’s encouraged that there’s bipartisan interest in Congress…In terms of what hypothetical policies might happen, I’m just not going to speak to that at this point in time.”

The establishment is playing it close to the vest, but it’s clear that moves are already being considered.
Barack Obama “coincidentally” gave a speech at Stanford arguing that it was time to regulate social media platforms because free speech is simply too dangerous.
Democrats no longer have faith that they can win the argument.
They believe that “misinformation” is too problematic, thus speech must be curbed.
They have convinced themselves that free speech is the domain of tyrants, which is antithetical to everyone’s understanding of history.
But if the Left can convince an entire population that men can get pregnant, they can convince the people of anything.
That is why their lies and deception must be constantly rebutted.
