TUCKER: The Left Is Scared Of Free Speech On Twitter Because ‘Now It’s More Of A Fair Fight’

Tucker Carlson discussed the implications of Elon Musk taking over Twitter for the left wing’s online censorship agenda during Friday night’s edition of his Fox News TV program.

“The whole point of the transaction is to make certain that everyone can talk,” Carlson said. “That’s why Elon Musk did this. The point is to stop censoring all people, period.”

“As the popular account, ComfortablySmug, put it We’re celebrating because we’re free to say what we want. That’s what they took from us and that’s why they’re terrified now.’ Exactly,” Carlson said.

“The people who’ve always been able to say whatever they want are upset, not because their right to speech is under threat, because you now have the right to speech and they hate that because now it’s more of a fair fight,” Carlson continued.

He added, “Restoring free speech is the main reason that Elon Musk fired Parag Agrawal—that would be the head of Twitter, the loathsome head of Twitter, who went on the record in 2020 saying his goal was to block people from saying what they believe to be true.”

“The thing about Twitter before yesterday was that it was censoring people before you even knew you were censored,” Carlson said. “This is called shadow-banning, using algorithms to suppress information like the New York Post’s accurate reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop. They did a lot of that. Remember?”

“Once everyone can talk—rich or powerful, poor or powerless, doesn’t matter—when everyone can talk, nothing will ever be the same and the Democratic Party will be forced to defend its positions on their merits,” he noted.

“Democrats pulled a sitting president off Twitter,” Carlson concluded. “Now, apparently, he’s running again. How could you possibly defend censoring that candidate, Donald Trump, if you support democracy? Are you really going to argue that a presidential candidate can’t talk? They’re going to have to argue that. They’re going to have to say that in public. What’s that conversation going to look like?”
