Breitbart News reports that leftists are complaining that conservative support of new Twitter owner Elon Musk is hypocritical in light of their desire to criticize cop-hating communist Colin Kaepernick.
Conservatives have been rallied by Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter to bring free speech back to the social media site. “By ‘free speech,’ I simply mean that which matches the law. I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law,” Musk tweeted on Tuesday. “If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people.”
Longtime Clinton operative Robert Reich led the attack on Thursday, tweeting, “So let me get this straight: conservatives love free speech for Elon Musk, but hate free speech for Colin Kaepernick?” Other leftist Twitter users echoed this false narrative.
Fact check: conservatives have never called for Kaepernick’s freedom of speech to be curtailed, despite his history of hate for America, the police, the troops, the country, the flag, and our history. On the contrary, it is the Left that has led the call for censorship and “cancel culture.”
As Breitbart notes, “Conservatives, on the other hand, are routinely denied the ability to exercise their free speech on Twitter. Literally millions of conservatives have been shadowbanned, suspended, and deleted on Twitter while Kaepernick is not only given free rein, his every utterance is echoed endlessly by a million other left-wing Twitter users and their echo chamber media lapdogs.”
