Just a short time ago, leftists loved social network Twitter. That’s because they could say anything they wanted with no consequences. Meanwhile, if you at all questioned Joe Biden or think Donald Trump was a good president, you could count on Twitter banning you or shutting you down.
But things changed very quickly when Elon Musk took over. He cleaned house, getting rid of woke employees who refused to work. And he outraged Democrats when he unbanned numerous users, including former President Donald Trump. Now, the White House is issuing a veiled threat against the (now) number one platform for free speech.
KJP makes veiled threat to @ElonMusk: “This is something that we’re…keeping an eye on…It is their responsibility to make sure when it comes to misinformation, when it comes to the hate…they take action….[W]e’re all keeping a close eye on this. We’re all monitoring” him.

Wow. Democrats are really concerned about “misinformation” these days, aren’t they? Just a few years ago, they rarely used that word. But now, suddenly, it is critical to the survival of humanity that we stop “misinformation” (or “disinformation”) from spreading online!
How convenient that this also gives Democrats a chance to shut down dissenting speech from their political rivals!?
Not that long ago, the White House loved Twitter just as much as AOC did. In fact, evidence revealed in court filings shows that the Biden administration even forced the social network to ban a notable user (and journalist) who questioned their narrative.
From Alex Berenson’s “Unreported Truths”:
Biden Administration officials asked Twitter to ban me because of my tweets questioning the Covid vaccines, even as company employees believed I had followed Twitter’s rules, internal Twitter communications reveal.
Yet today, the White House has to keep a “close eye” on Twitter. Why? Because Elon Musk fired all the people who helped Democrats censor conservatives. And Musk is promising to make Twitter a real free speech platform, shattering the left’s attempts at controlling the narratives online.
Even Apple is considering removing Twitter–one of the largest social networks in the world–from their App store over Musk’s decisions. This is what the left does when it knows it’s losing. It goes overboard to censor and control.
But they are not going to win.
- The White House issued a threat to Twitter after Musk restored free speech.
- KJP said the administration will keep a “close eye” on Musk-run Twitter.
- This comes after the White House was outed for ordering Twitter to ban users in the past.
