Donald Trump said Democrats rigged the 2020 election.
Democrats and their allies in the corporate-controlled media accused Trump of trying to overthrow democracy and impose fascism on America.
But now Elon Musk made a shocking election admission that just proved Donald Trump right.
In response to a Reuters article quoting former Twitter Trust and Safety chief Yael Roth claiming that the company was no longer safe because Elon Musk wanted to restore some basic free speech protections and cut back on some of the site’s censorship rules, the new owner admitted that the social media company interfered in elections.
A reader blasted Twitter for losing user trust with the heavy handed and ideological censorship Roth oversaw in his time at the company.
Musk agreed and said Twitter would win back users’ faith by applying the rules fairly and evenly.
Exactly. The obvious reality, as long-time users know, is that Twitter has failed in trust & safety for a very long time and has interfered in elections.
Twitter 2.0 will be far more effective, transparent and even-handed.

The most famous example of Twitter’s election meddling was the decision to censor the New York Post’s reporting on the emails contained on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
But that is just the one instance of censorship that everyone knows about because it occurred at the height of a close Presidential election.
There are likely many more cases of censorship and shadow bans of conservative speech or Republican candidates in down ballot races that Americans had no idea existed.
Musk promised to publish all of Twitter’s files on censorship and allow the American people to know the true extent the company waded into elections to tip the scales in favor of Democrats.
Democrats losing their power to influence what Twitter can censor lies at the heart of the hissy fit over Musk owning the platform.
Musk understands this.
In a post on Twitter, Musk said the battle to protect free speech was a civilization defining fight that had two outcomes – freedom or tyranny.
This is a battle for the future of civilization. If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.
