Democrats hate free speech.
That’s why they are livid at Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter.
Now Hillary Clinton is rallying left-wing activists to try and cancel Elon Musk for good.
The Left is trying to put the squeeze on Twitter to continue censoring conservatives.
Demanding censorship with Clinton Cash
Accountable Tech, a leftist activist group with financial ties to the Clintons, recently sent a letter to Twitter’s advertisers.
The letter urges advertisers to demand Twitter continue its censorship policies and call on them to boycott the company if they don’t comply with these demands.
“Twitter has outsized influence in shaping both public discourse and industry-wide platform governance standards,” the letter says. “While the company is hardly a poster-child for healthy social media, it has taken welcome steps in recent years to mitigate systemic risks, ratcheting up pressure on the likes of Facebook and YouTube to follow suit.”
“Musk intends to steamroll those safeguards and provide a megaphone to extremists who traffic in disinformation, hate, and harassment,” the letter continues. “Under the guise of ‘free speech,’ his vision will silence and endanger marginalized communities, and tear at the fraying fabric of democracy.”
The letter is also signed by several other left-wing organizations, including the George Soros-backed Media Matters and Black Lives Matter.
Accountable Tech is financially supported by left-wing activist group North Fund and is partnered with Clinton-run nonprofit Onward Together.
Scott Walter, President of Capital Research Center told Fox Business “These groups are cancel culture incarnate, mixing left-wing advocacy with Democratic Party politics.”
He continued, “Accountable Tech spawned from the heart of the Left—the multibillion-dollar Arabella Advisors empire of ‘dark money,’ and then was passed to Hillary Clinton’s empire at Onward Together.”
“Americans of all political stripes should fear for their freedom if these front groups and their billionaire backers can bully Twitter,” Walter stated.
This is at least the second letter targeting Twitter’s advertisers.
On November 1, several left wing groups, including Accountable Tech, had previously sent a letter with similar demands.
This organized pressure campaign shows what lengths the radical Left will go to in order to suppress free speech online.
The Left has long used the “it’s a private company” excuse for massive online censorship of conservative speech.
But it’s clear they only believe that if it is a private company that the Left controls.
Not only that, but social media companies have colluded with government agencies to suppress speech, as they did with the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
Musk is making major changes
Since taking over, Musk has fired many of the pro-censorship leftists that were working for Twitter.
Musk has floated the idea of premium subscription-based programs, which unsurprisingly, the Left has sharply criticized.
Leftists have expressed anger at the idea of paying $8 a month for a blue checkmark to “democratize” verification.
The reason the Left hates this idea, is that it would make Twitter less dependent on the advertisers that the Left is putting pressure on.
Hopefully, Twitter is able to succeed under Musk’s leadership in spite of the Left pulling out all the stops to try to cancel him.
