Elon Musk Says The Quiet Part Out Loud When It Comes To Big Tech
(TargetLiberty.org) – Most Conservatives have believed for a long time that Twitter is biased against them. Now Elon Musk has publicly said exactly the same thing. He should know — he’s halfway through buying it.

On June 13, Chaya Raichik, who runs a popular Twitter account called Libs of Tik Tok, revealed (on Twitter) that she’s been receiving death threats from angry leftists. Raichik added that Twitter hadn’t blocked any of the users who were threatening her. That news didn’t please tech entrepreneur Musk, who messaged Twitter’s own official account to ask, “Why?” He then sent another tweet, which said, “A platform cannot be considered inclusive or fair if it is biased against half the country.”
Former Twitter security chief Alex Stamos pitched in to claim that the social media platform’s moderators don’t have a liberal bias. He insisted that Twitter is trying to “balance a lot of important equities” and that the decision to block a user — for example, the ones threatening to kill Chaya Raichik — “involves hard tradeoffs.”
Musk says that Twitter’s moderation policies should follow the laws of the countries it operates in; if it’s legal to say something in everyday life, it should be OK to say it on Twitter. At this point, Twitter’s bias is undeniable; instead of banning the leftist thugs threatening Raichik, it’s considering banning Raichik. Twitter and other tech giants need to be brought under control.
