Think I read that too.  Kind of article that makes you go grab a bottle of $5 vodka and chug it.

You need an article to make you feel that way? I just call it Monday.

From the NYT:

“This is a battle for the future of civilization. If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.”

So says Elon Musk, the billionaire owner of Twitter, which remains, for now, the go-to place for political obsessives to argue over polarizing topics like gender therapy, school vouchers and Covid-19 policy. Musk has indicated that he wants to relax the platform’s rules around what people can and cannot say there — but doesn’t want to make it a “free-for-all hellscape.”

Seeking to balance those two impulses, Musk appears to be making it up as he goes along. He has said that Twitter users should be “able to speak freely within the bounds of the law,” but also that Twitter might temporarily suspend someone who tweets “something that is illegal or otherwise just destructive to the world” and either delete the offending tweet or make it “invisible.”

Even to those who closely follow free-speech debates around internet technology, it’s all pretty baffling.

“If anyone can get inside his head, I’d love to hear it,” said Corbin Barthold, an appellate lawyer for Tech Freedom, a nonpartisan think tank. “He seems to shift from free-speech absolutism until he decides he doesn’t like something.”

Trevor Timm, a co-founder and the executive director of Freedom of the Press Foundation, called Musk a “giant hypocrite” who is abusing the term “free speech.”

Timm worries, too, about how Musk will behave when authoritarian countries like China, where Tesla has vast business interests, lean on Twitter to crack down on dissidents or journalists on its platform.

I should clarify. With regard to running Twitter, he's slowly figuring it out and doing it his way

With regards to his individual tweets/replies, he knows exactly what he's doing

Paranoid people with power are downright dangerous.

I disagree with a lot of your greater Elon conspiracy theories, but this is spot on.  Its been the downfall of many leaders in history.

The irony is people always talk about F*** You money.  Elon has the most FU money of anyone yet he's conjuring up bogeyman daily.

My only Elon conspiracy is that he will monetize Twitter with the help of authoritarian countries - mainly China and Saudi Arabia/ Mideast countries.

Most of Twitter’s money comes from advertising and not only is he not trying to increase that revenue, but he is actively taking steps to reduce it. So he absolutely needs to find new money. I’ve given my opinion as to where I think it will come from.

Last night, Musk suspended Kanye's account after Ye twatted an image of a swastika inside the Star of David, saying the post violated Twitter's rule against the incitement of violence.

In related news, Kanye apparently has decided not to buy Twitter's fun-loving cousin, Parler. He didn't want to lose a ton more money after losing numerous endorsements for being a vocal Jew-hater.

It's been quite a week for "Ye." He also had a tasty Nazi-Lovers Dinner with infamous anti-Semite Nick Fuentes and the 45th president. And he repeatedly praised Hitler during an interview with Alex Jones.

When Jones tried to play the voice of reason -- think about that! -- by saying he didn't like Nazis, Ye countered: "I like Nazis. We got to stop dissing the Nazis all the time."

He also said: “Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler. Also, Hitler was born Christian. I see good things about Hitler also. I love everyone. Jewish people are not going to tell me you can love us, and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts, and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography. But this guy that invented highways, invented the very microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good, and I’m done with that.”

You can't make this shyte up.

Looks like Elon is part of the woke mob
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

Dont forget the random shot at CP3, saying he caught him with Kim Kardashian, as his parting tidbit before he was kicked off Twitter.  What a wild day.

That InfoWars interview was really disturbing

Swell.

Neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin has been reinstated to Twitter under Elon Musk’s new policies for the platform. The founder of the white supremacist website The Daily Stormer had been banned from Twitter since 2013.

SAN FRANCISCO — Before Elon Musk bought Twitter, slurs against Black Americans showed up on the social media service an average of 1,282 times a day. After the billionaire became Twitter’s owner, they jumped to 3,876 times a day.

Slurs against gay men appeared on Twitter 2,506 times a day on average before Musk took over. Afterward, their use rose to 3,964 times a day.

And antisemitic posts referring to Jews or Judaism soared more than 61% in the two weeks after Musk acquired the site.

Most do believe it.  Which doesn't help.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

It’s a legit question. Given all the anti-Semites, racists and liars Elon has welcomed (or welcomed back) to the twatters, a post with a swastika is too much?

Reviewing the posts here looks like msnbc, cnn et. al. are doing their best to keep its audience all frothed up.  Haven’t seen this much attention to a company take over since Jeff bezos took over the Washington post…wait…wait until the real juice part II comes out.  Then y’all will really be dashing for the depends and the safe rooms. Heard there’s been a run on fidget squeeze toys and petting zoos already
