Elon Musk is in the process of buying Twitter for $44 billion. Twitter will now be a privately held company when the process is finished.
Will Musk make Twitter a haven for free speech? Will Musk allow Donald Trump back on Twitter?
Free speech in the US? I can barely remember the US being a haven of 'free speech'! It must've been at a time when looting and property destruction were still a crime. They're almost an alien concept nowadays.
While I generally agree with this...
There were 970 arrests made regarding the Portland riots that included violently taking over a.section.of the city, attacking a police.station, arson, extortion of local.businesses , looting etc. That lasted for a looong time.
I'm not convinced any.of the actually peaceful.protestors were arrested.
As a lot of unpeaceful.ones were not.
We had congressmen setting up fundraising for bail for those arrested and calling for the police.to be defunded
Meanwhile in Russatopia, 6,000 were.arrested for peacefully.protesting a conflict who many possibly had relatives in the effected region, or where fined for daring to use the term war.
In a week or less.
You had the president state there needed to ge a cleansing.
A mass firing of intelligence officers.
Then more strict regulations quickly pushed thru regarding press verbiage,and fines for even local.businesses who might use the wrong unapporoved by the state descriptive verbiage.
Dissenters have an unusual high risk.of poisoning themselves
Seems a level of contrastbto.me,
but hey there has to be some line drawn between free speech and shouting fire in a theater
