Elon Musk’s Free Speech Platform Faces an Existential Threat


The EU has given Elon Musk until August to comply with stringent censorship. He doesn’t have much choice but to comply. He has to comply with the laws of each country he is operating in. Musk also admitted he cannot control the censorship on his platform.

In January, the UN regulator, the EU Commissioner for Values and Transparency, Vera Jourova, attended the World Economic Forum. She threatened Elon Musk.

“We have the rules which must be complied with, and otherwise, there will be sanctions. I think that the confidence has been weakened, and I had quite a high level of confidence when it comes to Twitter. I have to say that we worked with knowledgeable people, with layers, with sociologists, who understood that they have to behave in some decent way. Not to cause really big harm to society. ..”

The Commission also stated that the US will soon have hate speech laws.

The Threat to Free Speech

Redheaded Libertarian explained the latest threat to the free speech Elon Musk is trying to give back to the once-free world.

The Redhead Libertarian was asked if Elon Musk should ban some material from some countries. She explained that he was between a rock and a hard place.

“Countries without a bill or rights to protect citizens from their governments are threatening total bans of Twitter in their countries if censorship orders are not complied with by August.

“Many have enshrined “hate speech” into law and have also created stringent guidelines for social media operating in their countries.

“Elon Musk has two options:

  1. Limiting some material will allow citizens in these despotic countries access to Twitter, minus some censored material.
  2. Limiting no material means zero access to any and all Twitter material in these countries. Ironically, a total ban.

“So this particular problem is rooted in authoritarianism, and until something changes, it’s a lesser of two evils situation. It’s up to the people to elect a government that enshrines their natural rights and respects the power of the people. Twitter does not have the power to do this for them.”

Elon Musk responded in agreement.

Musk Doesn’t Control the Censorship on His Own Platform?

Elon Musk responded to this clown also. Mr. Musk put himself on the line for free speech. We doubt Mr. Yglesias has put himself on the line for anything.

Sundance at Conservative Treehouse explains his take on Elon’s dilemma. He has to make decisions based on the financials to keep the company from going under, no matter how much he cares about free speech. Sundance says Twitter is based on a defective business model. Sundance suspects Twitter was subsidized by the government when it was under Jack Dorsey’s ownership and could even be in bankruptcy now. It’s an interesting article on this link.

As Sundance writes, this is why Linda Yaccarino [WEF leftist] is the CEO. She will be the bridge to Google/WEF.

It’s a sorry state of affairs if true. I’m not sure I agree, but it could be.

People don’t seem to realize that we are in the hands of a globalist authoritarian movement. Americans haven’t seen the impact and don’t realize what is happening to them.
