Dear Elon, May I Now Say…

The Twitter turnover is but a sliver of light in the darkness of mass and social media platforms.

We have provided balanced analysis regarding Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover — the effect it will likely have on that platform and, by extension, other social media platforms and media outlets. We anticipate that it will shed some light into the abyss of mass and social media darkness. But it is only a start.

The overwhelming opinion-shaping control wielded by the Democrats’ Leftmedia propagandists was a driving force when we launched The Patriot Post more than 25 years ago. And despite the rise of new conservative media cutting into that monopoly, the Left is still dominating.

Over the last 15 years, its collaborators, the BIG Tech First Amendment suppressors, have overtaken the mass media as the masters of leftist propaganda, because they operate with a different set of rules. They have taken the initiative to pick up the Leftmedia gap, declaring themselves the arbiters of digital truth, and consequently have moved the bar far to the left. Rarely does one Tweet project so much about the leftist shift in our country, than this one from Musk.

Social media platform use of so-called “fact-checkers” and claims of “missing context” are the catch-alls to suppress free speech — at least the speech that does not comport with their political agenda.

It’s no small irony that Twitter was at the center of the most egregious example of a massive media cover-up of Joe Biden’s indisputably corrupt ChiCom dealings in the weeks ahead of the 2020 election. Only after the election, when it was safe to reveal the truth, did Leftmedia outlets begrudgingly admit the evidence they suppressed before the election was factual. But the intended damage to Donald Trump was done.

So, when Musk’s Twitter deal is done in six months, what can you say without being subject to social media blackout?

Political writer Kylee Zempel came up with a great list of “100 Facts Elon Musk-Owned Twitter Should Now Allow People To Say Without Getting Banned.” Recommended reading…

She even ventured into the Left’s sacred ground — the effort to groom children by infusing gender-confusion curriculums into the minds of kindergartners, and the absurd denial of the science when it comes to gender.

Indeed, it was the assertion that “there are only two genders” that earned our Facebook page a “hate” strike. And, unlike Twitter, Facebook gave us no opportunity to effectively argue our case. Thus, in the two years since, our Facebook traffic is down 95% due to shadowbanning, that invisible algorithm most responsible for the suppression of free speech. That has not stopped us from declaring the truth about the Left’s surreal gender-bending agenda. (Recall too that daring to call out the Left’s gender agenda is what got our friends at The Babylon Bee banned from Twitter.)

The fact remains, it is the Left and social media false claims of “fake news” that constitute the most dangerous enemy of free speech. Let’s see what Musk can do about that.
