According to AOC, Twitter allowing free speech is the equivalent of being responsible for hate crimes against American minorities.
In his latest debut, Musk just told AOC to ‘stop hitting on me’ after she spewed criticism for his recent platform purchase.
AOC originally tweeted, “Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform and skews it because Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him feel special.”
In which Musk replied, “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.”
After that, Ocasio-Cortez responded to Musk saying “I was talking about Zuckerberg but ok.”
She then quickly deleted that tweet less than one minute after publishing it.
Regardless, AOC continued to rant about her problem with billionaires on Twitter, proclaiming, “Billionaires be like “the extreme far left is taking over” when the ‘extreme far left” in the US is ‘medicine shouldn’t bankrupt you.’
“‘Wages should cover rent,’ & ‘maybe it’s bad that Wall St companies profit off mass surveillance, manufactured housing crises, and caging people,’” she continued.
Following that tweet, Ocasio-Cortez went on to say, “The number of billionaires in the US couldn’t even fill an apartment building, but the number of people they negatively impact is only growing.”
“All the US billionaire votes combined couldn’t even come in 2nd for an NY city council election. That’s why they stay pressed,” she concluded.
Musk did not comment on the latter rant at the time of this writing, but it’s safe to assume that he finds AOC’s comments radical and apauling.
One major indicator of this theory can be found in the infographic Musk recently tweeted out that showcases his own political stance and its evolution over the past ten-plus years thanks to Democrats and their radical shift towards the left.
This observation prompted thousands of other Twitter users to chime in to express their own personal frustrations with the Democrat party, which has outcasted much of its moderate support by veering off towards the left seemingly too far.
Shibetoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Dogecoin, shared a notable response, stating that his own politics have shifted in recent years for the exact same reason as Musk.
“10 years ago i would have called myself progressive cuz i believed in equality and not being an a**h*** over trivial things,” he stated.
“Now i consider myself moderate because i believe in equality and not being an a**h*** over trivial things,” he added.
Surely Musk’s recent slew of tweets has been resonating with many across all political spectrums except for the progressive left who seem determined to ostracize all opposition as “far-right” for simply believing anything that doesn’t toe their party line.
It will be interesting to see how Twitter evolves in the coming months under Musk’s new leadership. This is surely a developing story to pay attention to.
