Musk will be a threat to free speech by allowing people to claim that a man cannot get pregnant, or that transgender women are a threat to women’s sports, or that partial birth abortion is actually first degree murder, or that Black people can be racist, too.
And, of course, Muslims see Musk as a threat. Elon Musk’s public revelation of an offer to purchase Twitter raises serious concerns about the company’s commitment to protect the rights of vulnerable communities and the public interest. The self-proclaimed “free speech absolutist” has frequently called for a rollback of the platform’s content moderation policies and practices, a move that would be in direct opposition to the demands of Muslim Advocates. This is extra troubling as Muslim Advocates has previously and repeatedly sounded the alarm that Twitter is already endangering American Muslims by failing to enforce their existing policies on hateful content.
And then there’s this: Bette Midler has been loudly voicing her opposition on social media over the impending decision on the 1973 landmark abortion ruling.
FYI: My Twitter account got suspended for 12 hours for saying “Shut up and sing, bitch” in response to Middler’s tweet below:
The Daily Wire pointed out that while the NRA supports legal and responsible gun ownership and provides firearms training, it doesn’t sell guns or ammunition.
But according to Planned Parenthood’s most recently available stats, the organization performed 354,871 abortions in its 2019-2020 fiscal year — and a number of commenters on Midler’s tweet argued in that spirit, saying Planned Parenthood certainly does kill children.
- “Funny, I haven’t killed anyone, and I’m a lifelong NRA member. I also don’t know anyone who owns a firearm, that has killed a child with said firearm. However, I can name several acquaintances who have had abortions — some multiple abortions,” one commenter replied.
- “Planned Parenthood was designed to eradicate the black children in the U.S. by Margaret Sanger. It is still going on today. 79% of Planned Parenthood offices are in poor neighborhoods,” another user told Midler. “What does that tell you?”
- “So why is it considered double homicide to kill a pregnant woman? If it’s not ‘killing a baby’? And NRA isn’t killing people. People are killing people. With knives, swords, guns, blunt objects, cars, hands, etc.,” another commenter pointed out.
- “Planned Parenthood has been murdering babies for decades…that’s their main purpose for existing…taxpayers should not have to pay for other people’s abortions…you fund them..please post examples of the NRA killing babies…you liberal lunatic…” another user wrote.
