‘The bird is freed’

Loading

 

I have looked forward to this day for a long time. The bird is freed.

Elon Musk has taken control of Twitter and has begun firing the fascists.

Billionaire industrialist Elon Musk took over Twitter Thursday night and immediately fired several top executives, sending shockwaves throughout the social media platform.

 

CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal and head of legal policy, trust, and safety Vijaya Gadde were all fired after Musk had accused them of misleading him and investors over the number of fake accounts on the platform, a source with knowledge of the matter told FOX Business.

 
Editor-in-chief of The Federalist Mollie Hemingway described the firings as “An excellent start” to Musk’s tenure in a tweet.

And he did it in style

The fired Twitter executives were hastily shuttled from the building, sources told The Washington Post. Billionaire Musk is set to hold a company-wide town hall meeting today.

It’s a shame he didn’t put them in shackles first.

The left wing fascists were losing their minds on this emancipation day.

Uproxx writer Mike Redmond wrote, “I don’t think any of us are prepared for how quickly this whole site is about to go down. It’s a miracle flames aren’t shooting out of it already.”
 
“Yay, manbaby with poor impulse control and edgelord tendencies has the helm. Sweet,” tweeted writer Dylan Reeve.
 
“I would be so happy if I’m wrong. But the [sic] all the red lights are flashing here,” warned NBC News “disinformation” reporter Ben Collins.

I could not write this post without a contribution from this dipstick:

Controversial tech columnist Taylor Lorenz tweeted, “It’s like the gates of hell opened on this site tonight.”

And there’s more

Liberal academic and journalism professor Jeff Jarvis’ reaction upon hearing the news was, “The sun is dark.” Earlier in the day, he had warned, “This is an emergency! Twitter is to be taken over by the evil Sith lord.”

In a now-deleted tweet, liberal journalist Molly Jong-Fast asked, “Can someone make a new Twitter or is this a very stupid question?”

Disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather used famous lyrics by punk band The Clash to express wariness about Twitter’s future as a platform, writing, “With this Twitter thing maybe changing considerably. a question I am asking: Should I stay or should I go now? If I go, there will be trouble And if I stay it will be double So come on and let me know Should I stay or should I go?”

Noah Berlatsky, a journalist who has written for NBC Think and The Atlantic, responded to what he called an “extremely silly” tweet comparing people threatening to quit Twitter to those who had pledged to move to Canada when Trump won.

“Moving to canada requires a major logistical and financial difficulties. leaving twitter requires you to click a button,” he tweeted. “a huge number of people will leave this platform instantly, because Musk is really controversial and disliked.”

It makes one giddy with schadenfreude. It’s truly amazing how the left bitterly clings to its fascist roots. Others also are taking great pleasure in this:

LibsofTikTok appeared to joke that now the tables have turned, and Musk is the one who can hold left-wing accounts for misinformation, or in this case, failing to update their bios quickly enough.
 
“Hey @elonmusk, Parag is spreading misinformation in his Twitter bio and pretending he’s the CEO of your company,” the account tweeted.

It’s been reported that Donald Trump will be back and lifetime bans will be reversed but it won’t be a free for all:

Yet Musk warned advertisers earlier yesterday that Twitter cannot become a ‘hellscape’ under his ownership.

 

The Tesla CEO sent a tweet to advertisers, saying that while he wants the social media giant to become a ‘digital town square’ it ‘obviously cannot become a free-for-all hellscape, where anything can be said with no consequences.’

Fair enough.  Happy Friday!

The Bird will Fly the Jackass will die

What an EPIC win for democracy, America, and free-peoples everywhere!

We push these bastards out, one by one, and restore freedom for ALL. Democrats/Leftists will always be welcome on Twitter. They will just have to actually defend their views, and not cowardly be allowed to pretend to have a false “majority” because they are silencing others instead winning an argument, as democracy and the free exchange of ideas demands.

The globalist regime is crumbling around the world. We just need to get these villainous bastards out of office before they light off WWIII, which is what they want.

Good will prevail over evil.

Musk’s Twitter, which he apparently intends to privatize, will be in direct competition with Trump’s TruthSocial.

Unfettered competition is what makes better products.

Uh huh. That’s how millions of American manufacturing jobs and countless factories ended up in China and other oversea locations. That’s why less than 20% of the stuff in Walmart is made in the USA.

I’m not sure that improved quality has been a result.

Build a better mouse trap and our government sells the patent to china is not what I meant. Its more the vhs or betamax. I know you dont want President Trumps platform to be stepped on settle down lil guy.

Government? The oil industry just had it’s 3rd consecutive quarter of record profits, while you blame Biden for gas prices. The GOP plays their base like a cheap violin. Always the same finger pointing and the same old tune, but you NEVER catch on.

Tell me how deregulation slashed your cable bill, gave you better passenger airline service, brought down the price of prescription drugs, or resulted in fair market driven interest rates for the nation’s savers.

biden is responsible for high gas prices you dolt

Why don’t you explain how that works? You seem to imagine that you know.

The problem with the right is that they often believe whatever bullshit they hear repeated often enough, and social media has become a propaganda echo chamber. The echo chamber has mainstreamed even lunatic QAnon conspiracy theories.

biden is responsible for high gas prices you dolt

No Greg you spouted he was not responsible you tell us why. Cause he said so? He lies about everything, perhaps you can point to where he told the truth.

3 whole quarters wow does that mean greedy investors will get a cents back on their shares? I keep telling you I dont have cable so I DGAF about its cost. Prescription drugs are toxic poisons I avoid those. When we had a Republican President my investments paid good Bidens policies and woke Fed took care of that. Find out why California has such high gas prices. Green weenie Cali is a pig sty, rat infested worst polluter of the ocean as the trash gets deposited into the sea.https://www.huffpost.com/entry/san-francisco-bay-pollution_n_1283373
2012 and the problems never resoved now choked with covid masks too.

Comrade Greggie, I would think you would be thrilled that your favorite Communist nation was doing so well. And that you could thank a Democrat president for that.

Free as a Bird Skreeet Skreeet Skreeeee

Lary the twitter bird sing FLY LIKE A EAGLE

02/15/24 – The Supreme Court will decide if the government can seize control of YouTube and Twitter
In mid-2021, about a year before he began his longstanding feud with the biggest employer in his state, Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation attempting to seize control of content moderation at major social media platforms such as YouTubeFacebook, or Twitter (now called X by Elon Musk). A few months later, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, also a Republican, signed similar legislation in his state.

Both laws are almost comically unconstitutional — the First Amendment does not permit the government to order media companies to publish content they do not wish to publish — and neither law is currently in effect. A federal appeals court halted the key provisions of Florida’s law in 2022, and the Supreme Court temporarily blocked Texas’s law shortly thereafter (though the justices, somewhat ominously, split 5-4 in this later case).

Nevertheless, the justices have not yet weighed in on whether these two unconstitutional laws must be permanently blocked, and that question is now before the Court in a pair of cases known as Moody v. NetChoice and NetChoice v. Paxton.

The stakes in both cases are quite high, and the Supreme Court’s decision is likely to reveal where each one of the Republican justices falls on the GOP’s internal conflict between old-school free market capitalists and a newer generation that is eager to pick cultural fights with business…
