Liberals know that if Elon Musk follows through with his proposal to make Twitter a free speech platform, it’s game over for them. That is why they will try to play every dirty trick in the book to prevent Musk from lifting the censorship regime at the company.
Today, Media Matters released a letter signed by left-wing activist groups attempting to pressure Twitter’s advertisers in to pulling its funding if free speech is returned to the platform.
The Daily Mail Reports–
Twenty six NGOs and advocacy groups signed a letter expressing concern about the world’s richest man’s plan.
Musk himself responded to the letter asking who funded them: the answer being an assortment of ‘dark money groups’ like George Soros’s Open Society Foundation; NGOs founded by former Clinton and Obama administration staffers; wealthy Democrat donors and their family foundations; labor unions; and the governments of European nations.
‘Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter will further toxify our information ecosystem and be a direct threat to public safety, especially among those already most vulnerable and marginalized,’ they wrote.
They warned that advertising on Twitter would see their company ‘risks association with a platform amplifying hate, extremism, health misinformation, and conspiracy theorists.”
Unsurprisingly, Media Matters and many of the groups that signed on to their letter are funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation. Media Matters was founded by a former conservative turned Clinton staffer.
Accountable Tech, one of the primary groups behind the letter, was founded by Obama’s Senior Advisor, David Axelrod.
If Media Matters truly cares about accountability, maybe it should look inwards first.
