Report: Twitter’s blue checkmark brigade melts down over Elon Musk’s buyout plan

After billionaire SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, announced his plan to buy 100% of Twitter, transform it into a private corporation, and restore free expression on the network, liberals, progressives, and establishment pundits went into meltdown mode this morning.

While it’s uncertain whether Musk’s proposed purchase of Twitter at 18% above yesterday’s closing share price will go through, it didn’t stop the blue checkmark brigade from exploding in digital wrath throughout the network.

Max Boot, a notorious neoconservative warmonger, and ardent NeverTrump supporter reiterated what is sure to be a repeating argument from establishment mouthpieces: that free expression is hazardous to democracy, and that content moderation (censorship) is actually real freedom.

If Elon Musk takes over, progressive author and Daily Beast columnist David Rothkopf has threatened to leave the platform. The person behind the 260,000-follower account said, “We are the assets of Twitter.”

Because of the CEO’s pro-free speech stance, gun control advocate Fred Guttenberg declared he wouldn’t buy any Tesla cars. “People who buy his cars aren’t likely Trump voters,” Guttenberg remarked.

Scott Galloway, a professor at NYU Stern and a podcaster on CNN’s failing online streaming program, CNN+, stated, “You’re full of s***.”

Several left-wing users tweeted something along the lines of “tax the affluent” or “abolish billionaires.”

    MUST NOT pay any attention to a bunch of blowhard potholes. JEALOUSY is a flesh-eating monster of a creature, a maneater slimy worm that doesn’t die even when you strike and/or sever its head from its body. You’re the chosen one, Elon Musk.

  7. I’m pulling for Elon. It would be Awsome to get our country back utopia the lrinciples it was founded on and shut up the degradation by liberals

  8. I agree with Elon! More freedom of speech, less censorship! As intelligent adults, we do not need some squinty eyed “ fact checker” telling us how to think, what to think! Our constitution affords us the right to freedom of speech, and we should be able to state OUR opinions, the leftists can, so why can’t all of us?

  9. Many conservatives on Twitter were banned permanently without just2 cause
    The majority were conservatives and had many thousands of followers who were labeled influencers
    The power of Twitter in the tech communication bubble eliminates competition

  10. Elon Musk Do It ! Do It ! Do It ! Freedom is not control unless it’s used to destroy with no facts !
    Deny doesn’t mean it didn’t Happen ! Even if you continually Lie , Doesn’t make it true !
    All of us have a Mind of our Own, we can decipher the true meaning of most Politician’s real meaning after we watch their actions and inactions . A Democrat Politician Express their real Belief of the Constitution was in their way in 2010 I will never forget , that statement !!!!!!!

  11. well it’s always good to hear from the fascists like max boot and his ilk .they should give Max Boot the max boot in the posterior possible just to see where the commie lands …….one can hope mid ocean .
