X, “the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated” is creating a 2024 election censorship team “supporting people’s right to accurate and safe political discourse on X.” The DNC-CCP-adjacent platform larping at being a free speech platform announced plans to expand its “safety and elections teams to focus on combatting misinformation, surfacing inauthentic accounts and closely monitoring the platform for emerging threats.”
This seems to be more about attracting anti-Americanist corporate sponsors, such as Disney, the NFL, or even Walmart at this point, rather than trying to serve the general public, the general “American” public.
The old question continues to confound these arbiters of truth, these mavens of misinformation, what is truth and what is misinformation? To the atheist, for instance, claiming God is living and acting in our world even today is misinformation. To the DNC-CCP acolyte, claiming a woman is a woman and a man is a man is an untruth, hate speech even.
Yet, X, under Elon Musk, the man who is building more and more dependence on CCP approval through Tesla, is now going to once again dare dream it can “protect” Americans from wrong-think. The notion, even, that Americans have some sort of right to “accurate and safe political discourse” is far-left thinking in and of itself, paternalism that empowers the few “experts” that are given truth standing by billionaire elites like Musk to “protect” us from our own ignorance.
America is about Americans stewarding their own preferences and beliefs, and equipping themselves to discern fact from fiction, not empowering the few to dictate to the many the terms truth engagement as defined by them, conveniently to the benefit of their own power-mad self-interest.
Elon Musk and his crowd represent a gentler raping of America that seeks to shuttle us into authoritarian traps while wearing American clothes. Their billionaires aren’t as keen on the China model as the DNC-CCP elites are, but they aren’t that keen on facing level-field competition from stewarded Americans who have the power to define and pursue their own happiness while recognizing the rights of others to do the same.
This latest move shows X, formerly Twitter, is still, at its core, the same Twitter Musk pretended to be against, and Musk is as fake as his Hyperloop promises were.
