Following billionaire Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter and turn it into a free speech platform to protect democracy, Obama responded by saying that Twitter becoming a free speech platform would be a threat to democracy.
“Each of us, whether we work at a tech company or consume social media, whether we are a parent, a legislator, an advertiser on one of these platforms, now’s the time to pick a side,” Obama told Stanford University on Thursday. “We have a choice right now. Do we allow our democracy to wither or do we make it better?”
Based-politics.com reports: Obama then, bizarrely, tried to insist that, at heart, he is a free speech “absolutist.”
