Twitter Exec Gets Big Surprise From Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe – Opinion

Project Veritas posted some amazing videos to Twitter in the last few days. First, there was the damning video about censorship of the right and the senior Twitter engineer saying that the employees were “Commie as f**k.” Then they released a video on Tuesday where Twitter lead client partner Alex Martinez said Twitter wasn’t there to “give people free speech.” He also made disparaging remarks about Elon Musk having Asperger’s and calling him “special.”

The incident had “Asperger’s” trending on Twitter and Musk took notice of the video.

The kicker came at the end of the video and was especially ironic as Martinez mentions how Project Veritas was trying to talk to Twitter people by going on dates with them — “like this.” He disclosed to the Project Veritas person that Twitter people weren’t supposed to be talking with anyone about internal matters. “You’re lucky that you met me organically cause I would be questioning everything about you,” he said to the Project Veritas person. He didn’t know what he was doing at the time.

However, there were a few more details to this story.

This was the priceless moment that Martinez found out and James O’Keefe asked him for formal comment on what he had said to his undercover date. But Martinez wasn’t having any of it, as he sprinted off down the street trying to get away from O’Keefe. Good on O’Keefe for keeping up with him, helping him get in some exercise, and trying to question him at the same time. “I don’t want to talk,” Martinez said. “But you already talked to us,” O’Keefe replied. O’Keefe asked him what he thought Elon Musk was going to do if he found out about the conversation?

It’s an incredibly important story about fighting for a platform that allows for political expression, being met by bias and censorship. It is easy to demonize Elon Musk just because he claims he supports free speech. You need them to face the truth and admit what they have done.

This is what journalism used to be — asking the good questions and demanding the answers. Many media outlets have given up this pursuit and are now political operatives for Democrats. But this is also why James O’Keefe has been banned from Twitter — because he isn’t shy about breaking stories like this and that’s not good for the narrative. Hopefully, he’s one of the people brought back when the deal is finalized.
