Twitter Fact-Checks Biden Over Corporate Earnings Claim – RedState

The opinions expressed by contributors are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of RedState.com.)

If there’s one thing Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter has highlighted above all others, it’s that the professional left are allergic to free speech. The lengths to which the chattering class, progressive politicians, and corporate corruptocrats have gone to rail against: first, Musk’s purchase of the platform and now, his approach to running it are a sight to behold.

Why is that exactly? What are they so afraid of?

What has happened to liberalism that so many of its former adherents so willingly now embrace an endless expansion of governmental authority and regulation, yet recoil at the notion of freedom and liberty as the Wicked Witch of the West did water?

Do they fear they will melt if exposed to more free expression and alternative views? Perhaps it’s not they themselves but some of their own ideas and stances they fear will dissolve if challenged.

There’s a danger in becoming so invested in your worldview that you can’t even tolerate, much less debate, any challenge to it. The abject insecurity demonstrated by those wailing about Musk’s changes to the platform would be pathetic if it weren’t a symptom of a much deeper pathology.

Musk is absolutely right when he observes: “This is a battle for the future of civilization. If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.”
