Elon Musk SLAMS Twitter: ‘They’re Going Way Too Far in Squashing Dissenting Opinions’

Tesla CEO Elon Musk mocked Twitter’s out-of-control censorship in an American Revolution-themed post on Independence Day. 

Musk celebrated the 246th anniversary of the country’s independence by sharing a meme in a tweet showing “Twitter in 1775,” one year before the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. “The British are coming, the British are coming!” the tweet read, echoing the words of American patriot Paul Revere. There was a misinformation label just below Revere’s fake tweet, emphasizing Twitter’s seeming obsession with censoring people it doesn’t agree with: “Learn how British taxes are beneficial for society.” Musk later tweeted on the recent censorship of clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson and said that the leftist Big Tech company was “going way too far in squashing dissenting opinions.” 

Revere rode to Boston on the evening of April 18th 1775 in order to alert Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were approaching Concord, Mass. On the next morning, Revolutionary War was started. 

A fake tweet was shared by another Twitter user about Socrates, a Greek philosopher. Socrates, who was sentenced by Athens’ rulers to death because he corrupted the youth of Athens, was sent to drink poison hemlock to his final resting place. 

“I dunno man, I’m beginning to think that maybe the Ruling Elite aren’t as wise as they claim to be,” the fictitious tweet Socrates was quoted as having said. The tweet gained more than 3,500 likes by early Wednesday afternoon and came with the mock misinformation label: “Learn more about how Socrates is corrupting the youth of Athens.” 

The same user behind the Socrates tweet also asked Musk if the billionaire had seen that “JBP was recently banned from the bird app? Strange times…” 

Twitter booted Jordan B. Peterson (JBP) for tweeting about the “actress/actor” named “Elliot” Page. “Remember when pride was a sin?” Peterson tweeted. “And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician.” 

Peterson didn’t stop after Twitter banned him. “The suspension will not be lifted unless I delete the hateful tweet in question,” Peterson stated in a YouTube video. “I would rather die than do that.”

Twitter reported having suspended commentators as well Dave Rubin for a tweet that merely commented on Peterson’s suspension: “The insanity continues at Twitter. @jordanbpeterson is suspended because of this tweet concerning Ellen Page. He just told me he will ‘never’ delete the tweet. Paging @elonmusk…”
