Before you get too excited, 3.2 million rubles only comes out to about $42,000. Comrade Jack probably spends that on a nice night out in the Silicon Valley. Unfortunately, Twitter did not offer any immediate comments. Their PR department did drag out the usual ‘we’re worried about what this does to free speech in Russia’ trope. How tone-deaf are they to be concerned about free speech in Russia while stomping all over it here?

Twitter also denied they have allowed their platform to be used illegally. I guess that’s not including ISIS and the other State-sponsored terrorists who fly the bluebird on Mr. Dorsey’s dime.

The more significant issue is we are not even two months removed from the government of India slapping down Twitter because they wanted to ban specific speech. We have two foreign governments taking official sanctions against the Big Tech giant while our government does nothing to stop Twitter from removing individuals it dislikes.

When Jack is willing to defend ISIS, fight the Russians, but ban President Trump and Mike Lindell, there is a problem. Free speech, anyone?

Elon Musk DESTROYS Saudi Prince Trying To Block Him From Hostile Takeover Of Twitter: “What Are The Kingdom’s Views On Journalistic Freedom Of Speech?’

Published

Earlier today, news broke that business titan Elon Musk offered to take over Twitter.  His offer was 38% higher than the company’s current valuation in the stock market.

Rumors have circulated over the past two weeks that Musk is planning a hostile takeover of Twitter after buying a 9.2% share in the company and rejecting a seat on its board.  Musk’s offer to buy Twitter out entirely only further confirms these rumors.

Today, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who at one point owned a 5.2% stake in Twitter, rejected Musk’s offer, saying it was insufficient.

Musk responded shortly after, indirectly criticizing Saudi Arabia’s repressive measures against free speech and  freedom of the press.

The Daily Mail Reports–

“Elon Musk has fired back at a Saudi Arabian shareholder of Twitter who tried to block his $41 billion hostile takeover plan, questioning whether royalty in the notoriously repressive state should exercise control over the social media platform.

In a tweet, Musk responded harshly to Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who claimed to be ‘one of the largest’ Twitter shareholders and said he would ‘reject’ Musk’s proposal to take the company private, calling the offer insufficient.

‘How much of Twitter does the Kingdom own, directly & indirectly? What are the Kingdom’s views on journalistic freedom of speech?’ Musk asked bin Talal.

Bin Talal’s true ownership stake in Twitter is unclear. Though the prince shared a screenshot boasting of his 5.2 percent stake in 2015, his investment firm later reduced its stake below 5 percent, and has not had to report any further transactions, regulatory filings show.

Bin Talal is a cousin to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, whom the CIA concluded ordered the grisly assassination of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018. The Saudi government has long ranked near the worst in the world for press freedom.”

Members of Twitter’s board have already started plotting against Musk’s planned hostile takeover.  Twitter’s board reportedly met Thursday afternoon and hatched a plan to dilute Twitter’s stock by introducing a diluge of new shares, also called a ‘poison-pill’ provision.

BREAKING: Twitter Censors Tucker Carlson… You Won’t Believe What Tweet They Deleted

Published

on

In its bid to continue to silence conservative voices, Twitter suspended satirical conservative news site The Babylon Bee from its website.  The suspension is only supposed to last 12 hours, which will begin once the Babylon Bee removes a Tweet calling a male to female transgender person their ‘Man of the Year’.  So far, Babylon Bee has refused to remove the Tweet, meaning the suspension will continue indefinitely.  The Babylon Bee has over a million followers on Twitter.

Twitter also suspended the Babylon Bee’s owner for criticizing the ban and Turning Point USA Founder Charlie Kirk for echoing similar sentiments.

Now, Twitter removed a post by Tucker Carlson that simply said that both Charlie Kirk and the Babylon Bee’s statements were true.

The Post Millenial Reports

“After The Babylon Bee and Charlie Kirk caught Twitter bans for posting that Biden’s assistant Health and Human Services secretary Rachel Levine is a “man,” Tucker Carlson was censored by Twitter for pointing out that both the Bee and Kirk were telling the truth. His tweet, in defense of Kirk and the Bee, is no longer available on Twitter because it “violates the Twitter rules.”Carlson shared screenshots of both the Bee’s and Kirk’s suspension, saying “But wait. Both these tweets are true.” Twitter, apparently, is not in the business of truth, but instead in the business of censorship.”

The Babylon Bee’s editor-in-chief was also suspended for saying that if the Babylon Bee ‘threw a few thousand Uighurs in concentration camps’ perhaps their suspension would be removed.
