‘It’s About White Power’: Liberals Freak Out Over Musk, Twitter Deal In The Works

After news reports broke Monday about Tesla founder Elon Musk likely striking  a deal to purchase Twitter by as early as the end of the day, some liberals fumed publicly.

Race hustler Shaun King suggested South African-born Musk’s move to buy the platform was all about “white power.”

“At its root, [Elon Musk] wanting to purchase Twitter is not about left vs right,” he wrote. “It’s about white power.”

“The man was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist,” King continued. “He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to target/harass people. That’s his definition of free speech.”

“Elon Musk has openly called himself a ‘free speech absolutist’ and said that he wants to create a space where anything can be said about anyone,” the activist claimed. “That’s why white nationalists are giddy today. Here on Twitter and other platforms that I track daily. It’s dangerous.”

“And listen, I don’t even like the Democratic Party,” he added. “So for me, this isn’t about left vs right. Not at all. It’s about how the richest man in the world, a son of Apartheid, raised by a white nationalist, wants to be sure his speech, and that of other white men, isn’t censored.”

Actress Yvette Nicole Brown compared the reported deal between Musk and Twitter to a “deal with the devil.”

“For those leaving [Twitter] after this [Elon Musk] deal with the devil goes thru, make sure you download an archive of everything you’ve contributed to this space,” she wrote. “You had a good run, Twitter!”

The Young Turks host Adrienne Lawrence was looking for a new “tech bro” out there to challenge Musk.

“With news of Elon Musk possibly buying Twitter… Do you think there’s another billionaire or tech bro out there creating a new platform in hopes of luring soon-to-be former Twitter users?” she posed.

“So if/when Elon Musk takes control of Twitter and turns it into a malevolent mouthpiece, where should Democrats and Progressives go for free speech on social media?” said consultant Nikki Finke. “An existing site or do we start our own?”

“When an oligarch buys a communication platform to distribute rightwing propaganda that’s not democracy,” professor Jennifer Mercieca complained.

The Daily Wire reported Monday that Musk could buy Twitter by the end of the day in an agreement exceeding $46.5 billion.

“Twitter’s share price has risen since Musk made his offer of $54.20 per share, pushing the cost of a takeover closer to $50 billion than the original $43 billion,” the report noted.
