Elon Musk Claims No Social Media Platform Can Be ‘Inclusive Or Fair’ With Censorship

Elon Musk, the CEO of both Tesla and SpaceX, stated this past Monday that no social media platform could ever be considered “inclusive or fair” if it took strides to discriminate against huge sections of the population.

Recently, the woman in charge of the Libs of TikTok, which is a quite popular account that draws attention to more progressive content, unveiled that she had “received about a dozen death threats after radical leftists accused me of being a domestic terrorist extremist” and stated that Twitter had outright failed to act upon any of these threats.

Musk now questions why, which sparked one user to respond by stating that “you can be banned for merely criticizing (not even threatening) woke progressives, but they can send conservatives death threats without any repercussions.”

“A platform cannot be considered inclusive or fair if it is biased against half the country,” shot back Musk.

The statement comes just a scant few weeks in the wake of Musk officially putting up an offer to buy Twitter in its entirety and due to his issues with the hard leftward drift from the Democratic Party. In May, Musk stated that he would be favoring more Republicans for this midterm election after voting “overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically.”

“I support free speech, but not any one candidate,” explained Musk. “In fact, I gave money to & voted for Hillary & then voted for Biden. However, given unprovoked attacks by leading Democrats against me & a very cold shoulder to Tesla & SpaceX, I intend to vote Republican in November.”

“Like I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear,” he stated. “Now this election I will.”

Historically, Musk has been heavily critical of both former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden, but he has also called out Twitter’s choice to drop Trump from the platform.

“Even though I think a less divisive candidate would be better in 2024, I still think Trump should be restored to Twitter,” highlighted Musk, who went on to add: “Biden’s mistake is that he thinks he was elected to transform the country, but actually everyone just wanted less drama.”

As stated by Musk, the White House has quite often spoken about the work of GM and Ford while Tesla, which is currently the largest manufacturer of electric vehicles in the world, has been noticeably forgotten. This ignoring may stem from the fact that Tesla has chosen to not unionize, as was hinted at this past year by former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki when she was asked why Tesla was not going to be invited to the electric vehicle summit in which both GM and Ford took part.

In the wake of the State of the Union address from Biden this past march, Musk once again attempted to bring attention to the White House ignoring Tesla, despite its extensive role in furthering the electric vehicle sector.

“Ford is investing $11B to build electric vehicles — creating 11,000 jobs across the country,” stated a post from Biden’s official Twitter account at the end of the State of the Union. “GM is making the largest investment in its history — $7B to build electric vehicles, creating 4,000 jobs in Michigan.”

“Tesla has created over 50,000 US jobs building electric vehicles & is investing more than double GM + Ford combined,” stated the billionaire entrepreneur stated as a “fyi to person controlling this twitter.”
