Elon Musk is putting everything on the line

Facebook is controlled by one person, Mark Zuckerberg, but that’s not a threat because Mark Zuckerberg is happy to work on behalf of the democratic party.

Tucker looks at what the opponents of free speech are attempting to stop Elon Musk from purchasing Twitter, including not so subtly threatening his businesses. Highlights include:

“Elon Musk understands something about Twitter that many people in our country don’t understand, which is that is the single most important forum for speech, possibly in the world — not because it’s the biggest, but because it’s where “elite opinion” is incubated.”

“And so, free speech on Twitter matters, and last month, Elon Musk gave the impression that he planned to do something about it, that he planned to open up Twitter, he bought 10% of the company. Now, today, Musk has just put in an offer to buy 100% of Twitter.”

“Musk then made it clear that he has no confidence whatsoever in the people who currently run Twitter, including its pro-censorship CEO. ‘If the deal doesn’t work, given that I don’t have confidence in management nor do I believe I can drive the necessary change in the public market, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder.'”

“That means if Twitter’s board rejects Elon Musk’s offer, they will need to explain why to their shareholders they’d turn down a deal that would make the shareholders much richer. So, by doing this, Elon Musk is putting everything on the line.”

“Their rule depends on censorship and propaganda. If you are offering policies that really benefit nobody but yourself, you have to lie about them and you must prevent anyone from complaining about it. So, censorship and propaganda are at the very heart of neoliberalism, and Elon Musk is challenging all of that directly.”

As Elon Musk offers to buy the rest of Twitter a legal source tells Fox Business that the SEC and the DOJ have launched what he described as a “joint investigation” into a myriad of Musk regulatory issues primarily involving Tesla’

“In other words, threaten to allow people to speak freely and we’ll crush your businesses. That’s third world behavior.”

“So, all of a sudden, the political party that’s supported almost exclusively by oligarchs like Jeff Bezos and the google guys is telling you that it’s dangerous for rich people to have too much control over speech. Really?”

“Facebook is controlled by one person, Mark Zuckerberg, but that’s not a threat because Mark Zuckerberg is happy to work on behalf of the democratic party. Once again, if anything, we are understating what a big deal this move on Twitter by Elon Musk is. If free speech is restored to even one big social media platform, it all comes tumbling down.”

Glenn Greenwald sounds the alarm on a ‘very real threat’ of a nuclear exchange

it’s time to update your assumptions about the technology here. These are not the bombs that flattened Nagasaki. They are incalculably more powerful.

Tucker interviews Glenn Greenwald about the possibility of nuclear war, the current political situation in Brazil, and recent air raid sirens in Tokyo. Highlights include:

“Buses in New Jersey now have signs warning about radiation poisoning.”

“‘September is National Preparedness Month. Do you know what to do in a radiation emergency?'”

“No, you don’t. Doesn’t matter. This is all make believe, it’s all play acting. If you live in a big metro area, there’s not anything you’re going to ‘do’ in a nuclear exchange, ‘cuz you’re going to be dead, along with most other Americans. The overwhelming majority of Americans will be dead and those who survive will starve to death because all agriculture will be destroyed, along with billions of people around the planet. So it’s time to update your assumptions about the technology here. These are not the bombs that flattened Nagasaki. They are incalculably more powerful.”

“The way they convince Americans to support US involvement in a war is they personalize a particular leader, get us to hate that leader.”

“Hundreds of billions of dollars later and lives lost, polls always show that Americans come to realize that they regard those wars as a mistake, and the reason is they realize that no benefits came to the United States and American citizens by virtue of US involvement in those wars. So, let’s apply that framework here.”

“If a nation has nuclear weapons and you believe, even theoretically, they might use them, you have to treat that nation differently. You may not want to, it may be unfair, but that’s why nations seek nuclear weapons, because you can’t boss them around. If you ignore the possibility that your entire population could be killed, you are not fit for leadership because you’re insane. And if feels like our leaders are right there, they’re insane.”

“A lot of times the reason escalation happens isn’t even because the countries wanted to, but because when hostilities are intensified enough, miscommunication and misperception happen. That’s why when you get involved in a war like the one in Ukraine, things are incredibly dangerous.”

“The world is a dangerous place. These weapons can kill hundreds of millions of people at once and we are playing with fire by not even being willing to debate this out of fear that we’re gonna’ be called names.”

Martha’s Vineyard Hypocrisy

The ones who claim to be the ‘best people’ are actually the worst people.

Published

on

Tucker’s coverage of the recent visit some Venezuelans made to Martha’s Vineyard continues. Highlights include:

“Those brief hours our Venezuelan brothers and sisters spent on Martha’s Vineyard changed history and left what they’re calling ‘an indelible mark’ on the people who lived there. ‘They enriched us,’ said one resident, ‘we were happy to help them on their journey.’ Unfortunately, as it turned out, that journey ended abruptly at a military base on Cape Cod where our Venezuelan brothers and sisters are being held against their will.”

“The people of Martha’s Vineyard knew this was going to happen, and yet none of them thought to tell their Venezuelan brothers and sisters before it happened.”

“Fifty brown people was too many for the people of Martha’s Vineyard. They called in the army to have them removed, like trash, as one island resident said. So actually, judging by their behavior and not simply by their lawn signs, which is the best way to judge people, the people of Martha’s Vineyard are not especially compassionate. In fact, they’re small-minded, and cheap, and pretty nasty, as any waiter or babysitter who works on the island can tell you. So, once again, the ones who claim to be the ‘best people’ are actually the worst people.”

“Actually, the people of Martha’s Vineyard, the residents there are the ones who did the tricking. They tricked the Venezuelans into going to a military base. But that wasn’t deception, no. According to Elizabeth Warren it was an act of love.”
