LOL, now that Musk has taken control of Twitter and won't play ball with the Democratic agenda, NOW the Dems want to "reign in big tech".

2016

Left: Musk is the visionary who will lead us toward a renewable energy future,

Right: Musk is a fucking left-wing, government-sponsored user.  Obama made him rich by subsidizing his business that’d never have worked.


2022

Right: Musk is the visionary who will restore our freedoms and reign in the liberal press.

Left: Musk is a fucking right-wing, conservative-fueled stooge.  Trump created an economy where he could promote hate and end free speech.

That's cute.  But the Repub's version was logically and philosophically consistent.

You have to admit that it’s funny watching both sides scramble to figure out how they feel about the guy.

Why does either "side" have the need to feel anything about him at all?

They don’t have to.  But the vocal ones on either side seem to feel the need to express strong opinions about most everything.

Cracked me up where that whack job, Alyssa Milano, proudly posted on Twitter that she turned in her Tesla for a Volkswagen EV because she didn't want to support a company or owner (Musk) who supported "white supremacy." 

She got OWNED by someone who said a) get rid of your Twitter account if you don't want to support it and b) Volkswagen was invented by Hitler and the Germans.

Is it not possible to respect Musk for steering Twitter back to the middle while also hating him for being the quintessential corporate welfare baby?

Just not seeing what the Republicans are getting wrong here.

People can feel however they want certainly.  I was just bemusing the fact that in a relatively short period of time, one guy has gone from pariah to hero with one group and hero to pariah with another.  No easy feat.  It actually makes him more trustworthy as far as I’m concerned.

Trump was previously beloved among the now woke Hollywood celebs like Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, etc until he became "Bad Orange Man" and they flipped on him in the snap of a finger. They're all hypocrites.

Lol right, Elon is a liberal douche. But also is ready to show how trash Twitter culture was. I’m OK with this. A lot of pedophiles getting cancelled.

Care to name a few? I’m generally curious. It’s wild how people now are trying to demonize gays as pediphiles when technically the Catholic Church is one of the biggest groups  for that to name just one

You’re not gonna find me defending Catholic priests. And Drag Queen Story Hour being a non profit is enough Grooming for me. I can’t imagine the other depths of Twitter. The LGB probly should have stopped at those letters. The slippery slow everyone said wouldn’t happen after gay marriage has occurred, and coming up with the acronym MAP means it’s only going to get worse.

I’m not Catholic. Burn them down too. They’re not in the current news tho and not actively grooming children on maintstream social media. It’s not hard to comprehend. If you take your kid to a drag show you’re a fucking weirdo/ loser, and your kids should be taken away.

Is it because you’re a teacher that you’re the only one on here that writes like a 9th grader sending texts in the cafeteria?

Look something evil is trying to come out of the shadows.  If you can't see that there is some sort push to normalize the sexulization of kids at the earliest age you are either a blind fool or worse.

Is that really new though?  I'm thinking of the kids' pageant circuit that's been around a few decades, at least [and creepy as hell].
