Musk calls out motives of far-left groups urging corporate Twitter boycott

In the wake of a left-wing pressure campaign attempting to prevent Elon Musk from restoring free speech to Twitter once his planned purchase of the platform is complete, the outspoken Tesla CEO took to social media himself to publicly question the motives of the deep-pocketed groups behind the push, as Fox Business reports.

Musk’s pointed query emerged after news broke that an alliance of 26 activist groups and non-governmental organizations, including the liberal Media Matters for America, Black Lives Matter, and George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, signed onto a letter sent to leaders of several major international corporations urging them to boycott Twitter if the platform’s current content moderation policies are altered as a result of the sale, as the Daily Mail noted.

Among the companies targeted by the letter were global juggernauts such as Disney, Kraft, and Coca-Cola, all of which devote substantial sums to advertising on the platform.

If Musk follows through on his pledge to restore free speech to Twitter, the signatories suggest, any company that continues to advertise with the company “risks association with a platform amplifying hate, extremism, health misinformation, and conspiracy theorists.”

The array of far-left organizations hyperbolically went on, “Under Musk’s management, Twitter risks becoming a cesspool of misinformation, with your brand attached, polluting our information ecosystem in a time where trust in institutions and news media is already at all-time low.”

“Your ad dollars can either fund Musk’s vanity project or hold him to account. We call on you to demand Musk uphold these basic standards of community trust and safety, and to pull your advertising spending from Twitter if they are not,” the letter continued.

In response, Musk appeared to suggest the need for further investigation of those behind the boycott call, tweeting, “Who funds these organizations that want to control your access to information? Let’s investigate… .”

“Sunlight is the best disinfectant,” Musk added, later writing, “Interesting. I wonder if those funding these organizations are fully aware of what the organizations are doing.”

Likely adding new urgency to leftist efforts to interfere with Musk’s vow to restore unfettered speech to Twitter is the fact that it also emerged this week that the mercurial entrepreneur is expected to serve as the company’s CEO on a temporary basis once the $44 billion transaction for the firm is complete, setting the stage for some potentially epic progressive-led tantrums to come.
