(RoyalPatriot.com )- Last week it was reported that about two dozen leftwing groups, including Black Lives Matter, NARAL, the Women’s March, Media Matters, and GLAAD have sent letters to Coca-Cola, Kraft, and Disney demanding they stop advertising on Twitter now that Elon Musk has purchased the company.
The activist groups warned these advertisers that their brands will be sullied by any association with a platform that amplifies “hate, extremism, health misinformation, and conspiracy theorists.” They claim that under Musk, Twitter will become a “cesspool of misinformation” that would pollute the “information ecosystem” at a time when “trust in institutions and news media is already at an all-time low.”
Musk hasn’t even taken control of Twitter and already the Left is accusing him of turning Twitter into a “cesspool of misinformation.”
Good grief. What a bunch of drama queens.
In response to the coordinated pressure campaign, Musk is calling for an investigation into these leftwing groups.
In a recent tweet, Musk demanded to know who is funding this campaign to control the public’s access to information and said it should be investigated, adding “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”
These leftwing groups have their fingers in a lot of pies and are generally backed up by the same deep pockets every single time.
No doubt there is significant overlap between this current pressure campaign and the ones that have come before it, including the campaign to get Spotify to cancel Joe Rogan, the campaign to get Disney to fight back against Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, and the campaign to intimidate and terrorize conservative Supreme Court Justices.
Last week, Musk tweeted that attacks against him were coming in “thick and fast” and mostly “from the left” which he said, “is no surprise.” At the same time, Musk said not everybody on the right is going to be happy with him either, joking that his goal “is to maximize area under the curve of total human happiness.”
The deal between Musk and Twitter is expected to be completed sometime this year.
