It’s not surprising that Twitter has received a lot of negative press since Monday’s announcement by Elon Musk in a press release that it had “signed a definitive agreement to acquire an entity wholly owned” by him for $54.20 per share in cash and a deal valued at $44 billion.
Overall, conservatives have been most open and interested in the news. However, the meltdowns of Twitter woketivists and mainstream media “journalists” and Twitter employees have been predictable and hilarious. Especially when you consider their advice to conservatives on how to “start their own platform” if it wasn’t working for them.
Democrat and Republican politicians also voiced concern about the Musk/Twitter news. The “concerns,” expressed by Congressional Democrats regarding the deal are quite telling, especially when you consider how Twitter carried Joe Biden’s water in 2020. They even censored stories critical to him like the New York Post story on the Hunter Biden laptop email scandal that broke just weeks before Election Day. Some reports after the election indicated that they suppressed the story to Biden’s advantage.
In perhaps the most self-aware tweet ever – and, if so, certainly the top-five contender – Adam Schiff, Chair of the House Intel Committee, expressed concern to Elon Musk about Musk’s “personal opinions”:
Here’s my take on the world’s richest man buying Twitter:
He makes a great car and rocket.
But I’m concerned his personal views will stop the fight against disinformation on social media.
The problem on Twitter hasn’t been too much content moderation – it’s too much hate.

Twitter users, including Sean Davis from The Federalist, were not surprised that the undisputed king in disinformation and suppression of facts that aren’t convenient to Democrat narratives, expressed such a “concern”.
You fabricated text messages from Jim Jordan. You lied about Russian collusion. You fabricated emails from Don Jr. You are the last person on earth who should be whining about “disinformation.” YOU are the biggest source of disinformation in the country. https://t.co/HUVmj5gOQu

There are more than 1,500 quotes RTs as of the writing. Nearly everyone I read had responses that were similar to my points.
Every time Schiff opens his mouth I think back to the devasting clip of Devin Nunes torpedoing Schiff while he was sitting next to him during the televised November 2019 Impeachment inquiry Hearings. It details all the various ways SchiffCo was. dishonest with the American people. Trump/Russia collusion – lies to the American people. Click below if you missed it, or if it interests you as much as mine, to watch it again.

Schiff doesn’t care about disinformation. He is only concerned about the possibility that Musk will lift the ban on conservatives and other conservative-leaning news media outlets, allowing for truth, balance, and sunlight to shine through. This is actually already happening. This is what terrifies Democrats more than any other thing.
