Lefty Journalists Banned By Musk, Tantrums Ensue
Lefty Journalists Banned By Musk, Tantrums Ensue
Quite a number of lefty journalists found themselves summarily banned from Twitter last night. According to the media firefighters it was only because they’ve been super critical of Elon Musk and how he is handling Twitter.
When Elon Musk announced he was going to buy Twitter, the leftist media and deep state have been going after him like their hair was on fire. They just knew he’d burn down the system that they so lovingly enjoy and turn it into a conservative dumpster fire. Meaning, they couldn’t operate in a vacuum and horror of horrors, people will be pushing back against their narratives, and by golly, that CANNOT STAND!
Well, let’s examine one reason WHY all of these fabulous journalists, and Keith Olbermann, likely got themselves canned from Twitter. It involves a kid whose been tracking Elon Musk’s flights around the country.
Understandably, Musk wasn’t happy and issued a warning for the Sweeney to cease and desist. Then it ended with Musk engaging in a back and forth, ‘do I or don’t I’ ban the dude.
Twitter has suspended an account dedicated to tracking the whereabouts of Elon Musk’s private jet, directly contradicting Musk’s own earlier pledge not to ban the account as evidence of his “commitment to free speech.”
In addition to @ElonJet, the Twitter account belonging to its creator, Jack Sweeney, has also been suspended.
Sweeney told BuzzFeed News his suspensions came without warning but may have been retribution for a screenshot he shared earlier this month allegedly proving that Twitter was quietly restricting the reach of his tweets.
Whatever the reason for the sudden ban, Sweeney said it exemplifies the danger of handing control of all of Twitter ― or any communication platform, for that matter ― to a single, impulsive person.
He ultimately ended up banning the kid’s accounts. Then, this happened on Wednesday.
Billionaire Elon Musk tweeted a video of a person he described as a “crazy stalker” who allegedly tailed a car carrying the Twitter owner’s 2-year-old son and then “climbed” atop the vehicle in Los Angeles.
The video shared by Musk on Wednesday night showed the unidentified man wearing a black hood and a mask covering his mouth behind the wheel of a white Hyundai. The driver took out his phone as he pulled up alongside the car transporting little X Æ A-Xii and seemed to also record the encounter.
The 11-second clip tweeted by Musk then panned down at the alleged stalker’s license plate. Musk was not in the car during the incident, which the mogul said happened Tuesday.
“Last night, car carrying lil X in LA was followed by crazy stalker (thinking it was me), who later blocked car from moving & climbed onto hood,” Musk tweeted.
You know, it’s not difficult to think that the two are a cause and effect. Furthermore, Antifa goons are stellar at tracking down and stalking people. It’s a living for them.
Here’s my thought process on this before I get to the lefty journalist tantrums. I am ALL for free speech. Even speech that I hate. Sunlight is the best disinfectant on bad speech. However, for Sweeney to claim that his tracking a person’s travel and posting it online for the world to see is free speech? No, I would call that stalking.
Many lefty journalists piled on board in protesting Sweeney’s ban by going ahead and either posting or urging people to post Musk’s jet location. Failed hack Keith Olberman is one of those suspended.
Other lefty journalists from the New York Times (weren’t they on a walkout protest for more $$?), the Washington Post (whose laying off a ton of reporters), CNN, and others were summarily suspended. Needless to say, media is BIG MAD that this is happening.
CNN has put out a statement: "We have asked Twitter for an explanation, and we will reevaluate our relationship based on that response." pic.twitter.com/rffZJSoqY8— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) December 16, 2022
PLEASE! Let us back on to Twitter so we can continue to dunk on Elon Musk, further our liberal narratives, and advocate for conservatives to be banned!
The media’s hair will be on fire for DAYS if not WEEKS after having to deal with this atrocity! Oh, and suddenly, one of the media’s chief doxxers hastily scrubbed her account.
We all know why Tay Tay scrubbed her account and went private. Elon is going after doxxers tonight. The chief doxxer is panicking. https://t.co/wsWWp4ymrN— Libs of TikTok (@libsoftiktok) December 16, 2022
Twitter updated it’s terms of service (TOS). The new TOS was made very clear. Location info on people, specifically Musk was not to be shared in any way shape or form, yet the media did so anyway. I honestly think they truly believed that they could do whatever they want with no repercussions. The media has gotten away with so much in these last years, I’m sure they thought they were bullet proof.
Same doxxing rules apply to “journalists” as to everyone else— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 16, 2022
Supposedly it’s all because of the stories critical of Musk published by these reporters that led to their banning.
The most recent stories by Ryan Mac of NYT, Drew Harwell of WaPo, Donie O’Sullivan of CNN, and Matt Binder from Mashable — all banned today from twitter. You don’t need a ton of red string to figure this one out. pic.twitter.com/sWwSMjVQpE— Abraham Gutman (@abgutman) December 16, 2022
I’d be interested in seeing the actual tweets that led to these lefty journalists getting suspended and/or banned from Twitter. It would make for some interesting reading I’m sure.
