I've had a couple folks point me to Greydanus's apparent boil over at Twitter for some reason to do with blue checks or such. I'll be honest, I know virtually nothing about Twitter. I have no clue what this is about. I just know that like Greydanus, the Left has insisted we are on the brink of a catastrophe of biblical proportions because Elon Musk and Twitter, and Mr. Greydanus is accepting that narrative.
Until he announced his plans to buy Twitter, Musk was at worst a curiosity, at best a hero for electric cars and going green and all. But then he presented the possibility that upon buying Twitter, the Left would lose its comfortable monopoly across the tech corporate world of social media.
Note well, when conservatives complained that they were overwhelmingly targeted and banned and blocked on social media platforms, they were told to stop crying like babies. After all, it's just social media. That's not important. It's no big deal.
Once news broke that Musk was buying Twitter, however, it was like everything to the Left of center. Invoking its favorite tactic of a 'here today, gone yesterday' approach to truth, it declared democracy and perhaps the entire human race to be in jeopardy. Before we even knew what Musk would do, he was now discount Himmler. And of course, the donkey-thralls responded as donkeys always do when you whip them. They brayed like babies.
Now Musk has done this, but I'll be honest I have no what idea what this is. Below are a few screenshots of some of Greydanus's posts about the issue. I wish I knew more, then I could comment on the validity of his anger. But I can certainly notice trends when I see them.
