Sell out: Elon Musk says independent media will stay banned on Twitter; only “trusted” media outlets allowed
By Ethan Huff
As many expected he would do, Elon Musk has changed his mind and decided to keep Twitter as is with independent media outlets prohibited from posting content.
In a November 18 announcement, Musk announced that Twitter’s new policy under his leadership “is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach.” What he means by this is that only “trusted” content will be seen by others using the platform while independent content remains shadow-banned and hidden from view.
“Negative / hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter,” Musk explained. “You won’t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which is no different from rest of the Internet.” (Related: Remember when Elon Musk asked the communist Chinese government to censor all social media content in the country that is critical of Tesla and its garbage vehicles?)
Musk would follow up that tweet with another stating that his freedom from reach policy “applies just to the individual tweet, not the whole account.”
Elon Musk got his “freedom of reach” rhetoric from Jonathan Greenblatt of the hate group Anti-Defamation League (ADL)
Musk’s seemingly clever little quip about “freedom of speech, not freedom of reach” did not even come from his own brain, of course – because underneath those piles of ill-gotten billions, Musk is just another globalist puppet playing his part on the world stage.
It turns out that Musk stole these words from the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL being a prominent hate group that vilifies white people and constantly denigrates the First Amendment.
Twitter under Musk will be no different or better than Twitter under the last group of globalists, save for Donald Trump being allowed to tweet … yawn. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
Many have suspected that Musk would not change a thing and that this was all just a ploy for him to seize control over another tech empire – all for personal gain, of course.
Shadow-banning is the equivalent of locking a person inside a soundproof box and allowing him to speak where nobody else can hear him. This is how conservatives and independents will continue to be treated on Twitter while “authoritative” left-wing sources are free to say and do whatever they wish.
Chris Menahan from Information Liberation put it like this in a tweet that was probably shadow-banned by Musk for containing “hate:”
“You have freedom of speech but if we deem it ‘hate’ we’re going to put you in this box where no one can hear you … Your free speech rights will be fully protected within the box.”
One might assume that Greenblatt is thrilled with Musk’s announcement, but he is not. The official ADL Twitter page continues to complain that Musk is still not doing enough to censor “antisemitic sentiment,” meaning anything that criticizes the globalist agenda in any way.
“Sounds like a great idea, but our research this week shows that not only do you not have the resources, but you’re also not prioritizing what’s needed to make good on this,” whined Greenblatt in a threatening tweet. “We suggest you read on.”
Greenblatt would go on to provide graphs and numbers claiming that there are too many people tweeting things about “Jews” and “Judaism” on Twitter, words that he apparently does not want to see mentioned at all on Twitter in any context other than praise.
“The ADL is teaching schoolchildren across America that only white people can be racist and putting out in the media the lie that right-wing ‘white extremists’ are America’s biggest terror threat (both deliberate attempts to create anti-white sentiment) while simultaneously demanding that any and all negative ‘sentiment’ towards their own in-group be censored,” writes Sean Adl-Tabatabai for Newspunch.
