Instead, this news was greeted like a loud fart in an elevator. How could that be? It’s because Musk has threatened to institute what the left fears more than almost anything – actual free speech on a public platform.
If you’re terrified by the prospect of free speech for everyone, you’re probably a fascist. It doesn’t really matter how much “fair trade” coffee you drink or how many pictures of yourself holding up a haloed cartoon drawing of George Floyd you have in your Facebook profile photos, you are everything your virtue signaling pretends to be against. You are those mini-Nazis screaming “THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!” endlessly to prevent someone they don’t agree with from speaking without irony or self-awareness.
