Free Speech is perhaps the most fundamental pillar of Western Civilization, and it is vanishing from the American landscape as our government increasingly resembles that of the third world, which we have fought for millennia to avoid like. Americans are currently betraying the risky task of defending our historic civic freedoms. Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, has stated that he intends to address this issue.
Musk tweeted last week, “This is a Battle for the Future of Civilization.”
“Elon Musk announced he will make internal files on Twitter’s suppression of free speech available to the public, prompting speculation of revelations into how the social media giant censored stories related to Hunter Biden’s laptop prior to the 2020 presidential election,” Rusty Weiss reported for the Political Insider, adding an in-depth analysis of how we got here:
“The Twitter Files on free speech suppression soon to be published on Twitter itself,” Musk wrote in a non-specific Monday afternoon tweet. “The public deserves to know what really happened…”
The remark prompted the New York Post to publicly question if the release of such information would provide light on what transpired behind the scenes when Twitter banned their explosive article about the president’s son.
In the interest of openness, a user questioned followers last week whether Musk “should make public all internal discussions about the decision to censor the [Post’s] story on Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 electio.”
Musk said that such a step would be “necessary to restore public trust.”
Raise your hand if you think @ElonMusk should make public all internal discussions about the decision to censor the @NYPost’s story on Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 Election in the interest of Transparency.

Elon Musk elaborated on the idea that he would provide to the public internal Twitter data pertaining to the suppression of information, implying that they would be released on the very platform that had allegedly participated in censorship.
“Part of the potential disclosure is likely to include the full story of Twitter’s censorship of The Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop in the weeks before the 2020 presidential election,” the Post writes.
Other discoveries might include internal discussions regarding the removal of former President Donald Trump from the site, as well as staff-wide discussions regarding the banning of several right-leaning accounts.
It might also indicate how and why users were banned or suspended for speaking out against COVID-19 vaccinations or’stopping the spread’ attempts.
Musk emphasized in a subsequent tweet the significance of making the information public. He takes the struggle for public information very seriously.
“This is a battle for the future of civilization,” he wrote in a now-pinned tweet. “If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.”
The massive immune response we are seeing from Left-wing media and Big Tech to @elonmusk's commitment to free speech on Twitter should frighten you. It has revealed their rabid obsession for complete narrative control.
This is a battle they cannot be allowed to win.🛡️
