Elon Musk Willing to Go to Prison to Defend X
When Elon Musk took over Twitter, then changed the platform to X, he stated that free speech was key to the success of the platform.
After he took over, the Twitter files showed a massive effort by the government to censor Americans, mostly conservatives, who dared to challenge the government narrative.
Elon Musk has vowed that will not happen again, willing to go to prison to fight censorship of X.
I’ll Go to Jail
Musk made the statement this weekend while doing a Spaces discussion with Alex Jones.
Yes, this is THE Alex Jones from Info Wars who had been suspended by Twitter and just about every other social media outlet for various comments he made that were deemed to be misinformation.
Human Events editor Jack Posobiec asked Musk how he would respond to a government agency request to censor X.
Musk said that he will continue to work to keep X as “transparent as possible.” He continued, “Basically we will see everything that is happening on the system and nothing will be hidden, that is the goal.”
Musk went on, stating, “Frankly. if I think a government agency is breaking the law in their demands in the platform I would be prepared to go to prison personally if I think they are the ones breaking the law.”
In justifying reinstating Alex Jones, Musk stated that he would not ban people if they had not broken the laws.
Point being, a lot of people may not like what Jones has to say, or how he says it, but he still has the right to say it.
As long as he is not spewing hateful rhetoric, the man is entitled to his own opinion, and just because it does not mesh with the government narrative, that does not make it illegal.
