ICYMI| It’s ironic that for years and years the left wax always warning conservative about how much power corporations had and how much of a threat this was to liberty.
Fast forward a few decades and take a look around at where we are … a hand full of tyrannical megalomaniacal super villains own the monopoly over who gets to speak in the public arena and who doesn’t.
HOWEVER, we are not hearing the left (rightfully) tell us ‘WE TOLD YOU SO!’, rather they tell us, ‘so what, these are private companies, if you don’t like it … start your own!’
Well, we all know what happens when we ‘start our own’ and the platform takes off … their ‘master of the universe’ buddies deplatform the new site from the internet all together.
Now that Elon Musk, a pragmatist who isn’t ret***** (doesn’t bow to the leftist mob tactics and commie policies) has been releasing documents airing out Twitter’s dirty laundry from before he purchased the social media giant.
Well, just take a look at what he just released … BUSTED!
The Gateway Pundit reported:
The latest Twitter Files report released on Saturday night reveals Twitter took down President Trump’s account at the behest of Michelle Obama and other Democrats.
The Deep State and Democrats blamed President Trump for the violence at the US Capitol following his speech at the Ellipse in Washington DC on January 6.
Now we know that dozens of federal operatives were working inside the crowd that day in Washington DC.

FOX News reported:
Former President Donald Trump was banned from Twitter the day after former first lady Michelle Obama and others demanded the company “permanently” remove him, according to the newest “Twitter Files” installment.
On Saturday, CEO Elon Musk and journalist Michael Shellenberger released the fourth batch of Twitter documents that show internal communications by the company’s executives between Jan. 6-8, 2021, including and shortly after the riot at the Capitol Building.
Among the files, Shellenberger reported “internal and external pressure,” including from the former first lady, fell onto the company calling for Trump to be banned from using Twitter.
“Now is the time for Silicon Valley companies to stop enabling this monstrous behavior—and go even further than they have already by permanently banning this man from their platforms and putting in place policies to prevent their technologies from being used by the nation’s leaders to fuel insurrection,” Obama wrote in a lengthy statement posted to Twitter on Jan. 7.
She added: “And if we have any hope of improving this nation, now is the time for swift and serious consequences for the failure of leadership that led to yesterday’s shame.”
In addition to the former first lady, the Anti-Defamation League, among several other prominent people and organizations called for Trump’s ban.
