Elon Musk Announces Blanket Amnesty for Twitter

Elon Musk to issue blanket immunity next week.

Elon Musk let users decide whether blanket amnesty would be given to previously banned sites and it was a landslide. The vote wasn’t even close since the Maricopa County Supervisors were not involved in the count. A little over 72% voted for reinstatement. This will not include sites that have broken the law or have a history of hate. Alex Jones will not be one of the amnesty recipients. Amnesty will begin next week.

Musk had already restored a number of accounts, but the number of banned accounts was too high to do each individually. He then took a poll to give users the final say in what they wanted the platform to do. The amnesty program will be a huge boost for Twitter as well as conservatives are now welcome back to the heavily partisan site before Musk bought them out. Far leftists have been leaving the site, but who cares?

On Wednesday, Musk tweeted a poll asking whether or not to unban users that had been permanently suspended.

“Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?”

“The people have spoken. Amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.”

Musk has indicated that moderation will be limited to illegal activities. He has already begun to purge child sex abuse from the platform There has been no indication of what constitutes spam, but whatever it is, I am sure it will not interfere with free speech.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton replied to the poll:

“Please limit content moderation to illegal content (or, at most, a narrow interpretation of moderation under Section 230) and give users the tools that enable the freedom to choose what content they see.”

“[W]hatever it decides to do, twitter should be clear and consistent about it’s rules and penalties for breaking them, enforcement should be unbiased, and the mechanisms of enforcement shouldn’t be easily abused by people who have an agenda,” DogeCoin creator Billy Markus replied to the poll.

Musk agreed with Markus’ suggestion, replying with the “100” and “bullseye” emojis. In a separate tweet, he indicated that Twitter’s policies and enforcement methods were dishonest. “The more I learn, the worse it gets,” Musk said. “The world should know the truth of what has been happening at Twitter. Transparency will earn the trust of the people.”

The blanket amnesty policy is the latest move in Musk’s effort to restore free speech on Twitter. Under his leadership, the social media giant has already restored the accounts of several high-profile conservative and right-leaning influencers. The list includes: Christian satire site The Babylon Bee, which likely played a role in Musk’s decision to buy Twitter in the first place;  clinical psychologist and DailyWire+ host Dr. Jordan B. Peterson; conservative undercover investigative journalism outfit Project Veritas; and former President Donald Trump.

Despite restoring high-profile conservative users, Musk has not been immune from criticism from the right. Conservatives slammed Musk last week after he announced that mean tweets would be aggressively de-boosted, effectively keeping the same “shadowbanning” policies that were in effect by Twitter before he took over.

Musk tweeted:

“Negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter. You won’t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which is no different from rest of Internet.”

    My investigation into a DHS program that instructed law enforcement to treat Christians as terrorists won me the 2014 CJN Journalist of the Year award. Here is a video of Glenn Beck reading my article on his program: I am a troll bridge. You can cross me, but you will pay a price.

    You mean all the resources stifling American values and thought was for nought? Where else could one have worked and still ended up a zero? Ex employees can go ahead and retort now with their 2 cents worth creating humor for the masses.

    People need to understand that Elon Musk is NOT a Conservative….. He is a Classical Liberal…..

    Classical Liberalism……. What MOST Democrats USED-TO-BE…….

    Ralph Raico once said, “Liberalism . . . is based on the conception of civil society as by and large self-regulating when its members are free to act within the very wide bounds of their individual rights. Among these, the right to private property, including freedom of contract and exchange and the free disposition of one’s own labor, is given a high priority. Historically, liberalism has manifested a hostility to state action, which, it insists, should be reduced to a minimum.” American Conservatives today subscribe to these notions of Classical Liberalism, and it USED-TO-BE true that Democrats also believed in them, but NOT any more. Today, there are less than a handful of Democrats in Congress that subscribe to Classical Liberalism and they do so at their own risk.

    But, since Barack Obama purged the American Left of Classical Liberals, this is no longer so. Obama fulfilled his Pledge of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” by eliminating the Classical Liberals in the Democrat Party by taking Hard-Left Political Positions on most issues; this ensured increasing levels of defeat for liberal Democrats at the polls — leaving behind Statist Progressives — in every election year, from 2010 to the present. In 2017, we find a record number of Republican-controlled legislative chambers and Governorships nationwide, not to speak of the US Senate, the House of Representatives, and the US Presidency.

    Alex Jones has never been a proponent of hate speech. Musk is a partial fool. Alex Jones is the preeminent patriot and model for all media expression. He pulls no punches.

      Regarding the Alex Jones ban:
      Freedoms must apply to ALL people. What may be, to some, the rantings of a lunatic, could be proven true in the fullness of time. Censorship of the speech of one will, be performed by someone having the opposite opinion. This puts the “rights” of that judge in a higher value position than the “rights” of the judged. This will ultimately grow into oppression, as all counter positions will be suppressed. We, as a Free People, may vehemently disagree with the opinions of another, but we must be ready to defend to the death, the right of that opponent to speak it. This is an absolute if we are to remain a Free society.

      “With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured…the first thought forbidden…the first freedom denied – chains us all, irrevocably.” – Judge Aaron Satie

      A fictitious character, but exactly true.
