Fox News host Tucker Carlson said on Tuesday that Elon Musk potentially taking over Twitter would be a challenge to liberals.
Carlson’s remarks came as Musk recently became Twitter’s largest shareholder with 9.2% of its stock.
“The point of censorship is never to shield the weak, no matter what Barack Obama may tell you,” he continued. “The point of censorship always, and everywhere, is to protect entrenched power.” https://t.co/rIGwKoJSyu

“If that were to happen, we could see a return of free speech to the United States and nothing should give you more hope than that possibility,” Carlson said.
“A free Twitter would mean an open debate about ideas on the single most important incubator of elite opinion in the world. It would mean a return to free and fair elections in the United States. A system in which both sides are allowed to make their case to the public and then the public can decide, it’s called democracy.

“And above all, a free Twitter would mean a direct challenge to the people in charge of our country’s institutions, many of whom are incompetent.”
Musk’s involvement in Twitter has already been taken as an encouraging sign by free speech advocates concerned over Twitter’s censorship crackdowns.
