Leftist having a ‘mental breakdown’ over free speech on Twitter

Following Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s recent bid to buy social media giant Twitter in order to restore free speech to the platform, US congressional candidate and state representative Anthony Sabatini ( R-FL) accused the left of only supporting free speech with “she agrees”. while ‘freaking out’ about the possibility of right-wing free speech, saying they’re ‘having an absolute nervous breakdown’ over Musk’s decision.

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News on Thursday, Florida Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R-Howey-in-the-Hills) explained the power behind Big Tech platforms after Musk allegedly Free to buy 100% of Twitter shares.

“Republicans will never have real power in this country as long as Big Tech continues its hegemonic dominance in the country and primarily in our political sphere,” he said. “So it’s important that we do everything we can to fight it.”

He then listed the steps that could be taken to fight back.

“I think there are important legal things that we need to do, like advancing common carrier legislation, removing Section 230 protection for these companies and of course going so far as to break Big Tech into smaller ones. independent pieces. I think this is an important step to take.

“But I think there are other asymmetrical things that we need to encourage, including getting the curators to come up with alternatives to these dominant sites,” he added.

Sabatini expressed approval for Musk’s offer, adding that it could prove to be a “major step” in the fight for free speech.

“Of course it’s great to see what Elon Musk is doing,” he said. “It’s like an anomaly – if we could have a purist free speech advocate just buying one of these companies, which is kind of unimaginable, that’s also really a big step forward. in restoring free speech in this country.”

“But there are other things we have to do legally in the meantime,” he added.

Asked why he thought liberals were concerned about the possible Musk buyout on Twitter, Sabatini pointed to fears that right-wing sentiment is resonating with Americans.

“Because the left knows when conservatives benefit from free speech, people hear the message of the right, of the populist America First movement, and the common sense America First ideas resonate with the American people,” he said. -he declares.

“So what they had to do was cut off the flow of information,” he added.

Sabatini also claimed that liberals “really hate free speech.”

“They think freedom of speech is really the biggest problem in America today – that people are able to say what they want, think what they want, feel what they want” , did he declare.

The Florida Republican accused the left of bullying people into adopting the “right” views.

“If you don’t have the ‘correct’ opinions, the ‘correct’ opinions – politically correct, that’s their version of correct – then you’re in a dangerous situation,” he said. “We’re going in a dangerous direction, so it’s just a power play.”

Attributing former President Donald Trump’s 2016 victory to “a free flow of information”, Sabatini expressed his belief that there was “massive, massive interference in the election”.

“I think the 2020 election was stolen, but I also think it would have been impossible for them to steal it if Big Tech hadn’t played the role it played regardless of whatever happened. past regarding the election,” he said.

“So I think when you have a culture of free speech in the country again, Big Tech getting out of the way, I think the Donald Trump-affiliated candidates are going to increase,” he added. .

He went on to accuse Big Tech of being “the biggest American election interference in the country today.”

“The left is freaking out because we’re going back to 2016 when people could talk openly about Clinton corruption etc like they couldn’t in the 2020 election where things were banned, suppressed, suppressed and distorted,” he said.

“The things the left always accuses others of are the exact practices they engage in,” he added. “And in this case, manipulation and suppression of information is what they are indulging in.”

According to Sabatini, Big Tech “has a stranglehold on information and actually uses a chilling effect – it has a way of chilling free speech because people think they might be confused if they say that or s ‘they distribute this information’.

“So people end up censoring themselves based on the power and previous evil acts of big tech,” he said. “That’s what helps the left win on a multitude of different issues.”

As a result, now that “they know there’s a possibility that Elon Musk could buy Twitter and restore free speech and give everyone a voice, they know they have a lot to lose.” he said, “and that’s why they have an absolute mental breakdown about it.

Such a move on Musk’s part, he claimed, has the potential “to be a massive seismic event that will happen in politics years from now.”

“If you think about it, people underestimate what Twitter really is,” he said. “Twitter is the centrifuge – it’s like the main conduit to a lot of the most important ‘correct’ opinions, and so by controlling it, you control the flow of information in every industry, any type of defining industry in the world, be it politics or economics or whatever,” he said.

“And it’s like a hostile takeover, it’s quite interesting,” he added.
