The unjustified suppression of free speech on social media and the exploitation of rampant early voting ballots have severely tainted the last two elections. The sooner both problems can be rectified, the sooner election integrity will be restored. Donald Trump’s tweetstorm, not on Twitter but on his platform Truth Social, hit a nerve. Trump pointed out that “steps must be immediately taken to RIGHT THE WRONG. Only FOOLS would disagree with that and accept STOLEN ELECTIONS. MAGA!”
Elon Musk has done our country, and indeed the entire world, a massive favor by exposing how Twitter “interfered with” the 2020 presidential election. The FBI and the Democratic National Committee spun deceitful tales about Russian interference in order to suppress truthful information about Hunter Biden’s laptop. The New York Post, the oldest newspaper in America, had broken the story about the treasure trove of incriminating information about the Biden family found on that laptop. Government and Democrats sprang into action and got Twitter to censor tweets about it.
The Deep State is suddenly quiet about all this, becoming the “Dark State” of wrongdoing proven by Musk’s data dumps from Twitter’s files. In Brazil, it appears the socialist candidate only narrowly defeated the Trump-like conservative Jair Bolsonaro with a boost from Twitter censorship.
Obviously, the buy-out of Twitter by the quasi-conservative Elon Musk is a great step in the right direction, but conservatives should not be fooled into thinking that this fight is over. Even if government-Twitter collusion really is over for good, there are plenty of other platforms for Big Government to use for their propaganda. This fight will not be over until patriotic Americans restore a federal government that only does the business of the federal government, while leaving the messaging to the free marketplace of ideas. This might sound like a lofty goal to reach for, and it is. Still, the fact remains that only a truly limited federal government can be restrained from making these shady backroom deals with social media platforms like Twitter. Until such a restrained government is created, we cannot trust our federal government to act in the best interests of We the People.
