Leftists Freak As Elon Musk Twitter Deal Goes Through: ‘It’s About White Power’

Far-left users on social media had meltdowns and tossed out unsubstantiated allegations as word came that billionaire SpaceX and Tesla founder’s offer to purchase Twitter was accepted.

“Twitter on Monday agreed to be acquired for around $44 billion in cash by Elon Musk, just weeks after the tech mogul launched his unsolicited, take-it-or-leave-it offer,” Axios .

The news earlier in the day that the deal was likely to go through led to tense reactions from several leftist users on the platform.

Race hustler Shaun King, for instance, suggested South African-born Musk’s move to buy the platform was all about “white power.”

“At its root, [Elon Musk] wanting to purchase Twitter is not about left vs right,” he wrote. “It’s about white power.”

“The man was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist,” King continued. “He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to target/harass people. That’s his definition of free speech.”

“Elon Musk has openly called himself a ‘free speech absolutist’ and said that he wants to create a space where anything can be said about anyone,” the activist claimed. “That’s why white nationalists are giddy today. Here on Twitter and other platforms that I track daily. It’s dangerous.”

“And listen, I don’t even like the Democratic Party,” he added. “So for me, this isn’t about left vs right. Not at all. It’s about how the richest man in the world, a son of Apartheid, raised by a white nationalist, wants to be sure his speech, and that of other white men, isn’t censored.”

Meanwhile, actress Yvette Nicole Brown compared the reported deal between Musk and Twitter to a “deal with the devil.”

“For those leaving [Twitter] after this [Elon Musk] deal with the devil goes thru, make sure you download an archive of everything you’ve contributed to this space,” she wrote. “You had a good run, Twitter!”

The Young Turks host Adrienne Lawrence wrote that she was looking for a new “tech bro” out there to challenge Musk.

“With news of Elon Musk possibly buying Twitter… Do you think there’s another billionaire or tech bro out there creating a new platform in hopes of luring soon-to-be former Twitter users?” she asked.

“So if/when Elon Musk takes control of Twitter and turns it into a malevolent mouthpiece, where should Democrats and Progressives go for free speech on social media?” said consultant Nikki Finke. “An existing site or do we start our own?”

“When an oligarch buys a communication platform to distribute rightwing propaganda that’s not democracy,” Prof. Jennifer Mercieca complained.
