The Democratic Party is in utter disarray.
Joe Biden’s Presidency has been a failure, and he’s become a drag on the Party.
Now, this Clintonworld hack woke up to the Democrats’ worst nightmare.
Robert Reich, the Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton, constantly embarrasses himself with the most absurd left-wing takes.
In addition to being a socialist on economic policy, he has a fluid relationship with free speech.
Whenever conservatives get banned from Twitter, he responds with the platitude that it’s a private company and it can do what it wants.
But Reich’s perspective flipped upon the news of tech billionaire Elon Musk buying a major stake in Twitter.

Now, Musk is attempting to buy Twitter outright and take the company private, which has triggered Reich and other Democrats to melt down.
Musk offered to buy Twitter at a premium – pledging $54.20 per share, which was $9 over the share price of $45.
The total purchase price would be $43 billion, a massive financial win for the shareholders.
The entire left-wing press corps freaked out at the idea because they understand that Twitter’s clear leftist bias clearly helps Democrats.
Reich wrote an embarrassing op-ed arguing that Musk’s “libertarian” view of the internet is “dangerous.”

Only shameless ideologues would argue that dictators are big on free speech. Does he really think Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and others were strong proponents of civil liberties?
The Left understands Twitter to be a weapon that can be wielded against the Right.
They are fighting tooth-and-nail to maintain the glaring double standard.
Musk sent a message to Twitter chairman Bret Taylor that read, “I am not playing the back-and-forth game…I have moved straight to the end…Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company…Twitter has extraordinary potential. I will unlock it.”
Musk has put Twitter in an interesting position.
The board arguably abandons its fiduciary responsibility by rejecting the offer as it would make shareholders a considerable amount of money.
And the measures they take to block a takeover by Musk also stand to tank the stock price.
Regardless of what happens in the end, Musk’s gambit should be an eye-opener for people who still believe that people on the Left care about free speech.
They have shown over and over again that they do not.
If a far-left billionaire swooped in to buy the company and take it private, Reich would shamelessly flip his position again.
