When did we last check in on Joe Walsh? Looks like it was just a little less than a month ago, when he came out as a “woke conservative.” Such a silly person.
He’s still a silly person, by the way. And, like so many other silly people, he’s very concerned about Elon Musk suggesting that “independent-minded voters” consider voting Republican in the midterms:
Look, free country, he owns the company, he can do and say what he wants, he can endorse whoever he wants. And I’m fine with all that. But what’s funny is thinking about how the right would be freaking out if prior Twitter ownership had openly encouraged users to vote Democrat. https://t.co/B9wkJ6ez2X

Should’ve stopped before the “but,” Joe. Honestly, you should’ve stopped before you even tweeted anything, but at the very least before the “but.”
I have seen some pretty hot takes, but this one is pretty amazing even for our current political climate

He thinks he is. Talk about disinformation, huh?
Um … does actively silencing Republican and conservative users count as encouraging users to vote Democrat? Because cracking down on the Right in favor of the Left kinda seems like de facto encouraging users to vote Democrat. If Republican and conservative accounts get shadow-banned or suspended, only Democratic and liberal accounts will be left to dominate the discourse.
“Openly”, I wouldn’t have minded at all. It was all the hidden skullduggery and shenanigans and deboosting and gaslighting and outright banning of discussion on many topics unfavorable to previous ownership’s favored candidates that was and would still be problematic.

And, as we recently learned, Twitter (as well as Facebook) worked very closely with Joe Biden’s FBI and DHS on a secret campaign to censor “disinformation,” aka inconvenient truths.
It did. It even went so far as to meet with the democrat led administration to coordinate censorship.

There is no “if,” Joe.
