Billionaire Elon Musk has bought Twitter because he wants to go back to a time when we respected free speech.
This has caused some people on the left to lose their minds. They are not fans of free speech. How are they going to suppress stories like the Hunter Biden laptop if we have free speech?
Elizabeth Warren wants to see more rules, not less.
FOX News reports:
Elizabeth Warren calls for new ‘rules’ to govern ‘unregulated’ social media amid Musk’s Twitter takeover
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., called for new “rules” to govern “unregulated” social media amid Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s takeover of largely liberal Twitter.
During an appearance Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Beat With Ari Melber,” Warren declared that “rules of the road” were needed for Big Tech, and that decisions about large communications platforms needed to be made “as a democracy,” rather than someone like Musk, who she claimed “plays by his own set of rules.”
“I see that we need to make two big changes. The first one is we need a wealth tax in America. And let’s talk about how Elon’s purchase here was subsidized by tens of millions of people who’ve paid their taxes every year,” Warren told host Ari Melber, referencing her past claim that Musk didn’t pay taxes.
“The second part is we need rules of the road for Big Tech. But ultimately what all of this boils down to is power,” she added. “Who’s going to have the power in our country? Are we going to make these decisions as a democracy, or is this going to be Elon Musk all by himself, off in a room, a bazillionaire, who just plays by his own set of rules?”
Warren has even called Musk’s purchase of Twitter “dangerous.”
This deal is dangerous for our democracy. Billionaires like Elon Musk play by a different set of rules than everyone else, accumulating power for their own gain. We need a wealth tax and strong rules to hold Big Tech accountable.
