The media machine has a way of making any day conservatives get a win, a day “democracy dies.” Those words have been used repeatedly to tell the sheep how to think, act and feel when the left’s agenda gets a gut punch.
The gut punch came in the form of Twitter suspensions last week when the platform’s CEO Elon Musk suspended several prominent accounts on Thursday, citing a violation of the platform’s “doxxing” policy.
Ryan Mac of the New York Times, Donie O’Sullivan of CNN, Drew Harwell of the Washington Post, Matt Binder of Mashable, Micah Lee of the Intercept, Steve Herman of Voice of America, and independent journalists Aaron Rupar, Keith Olbermann, and Tony Webster were all put on a 7-day suspension from the platform.
The violations of the recently-updated doxxing policy hit a little too close to home as the billionaire CEO’s private jet was tracked and its real-time location was shared by the suspended accounts. Left-leaning media outlets are having a hard time comprehending how Musk could possibly suspend the journalists for their actions.
More surprisingly, some figures who don’t fall on the left of the political spectrum have voiced criticism of Musk’s decision to suspend the accounts.
One of them in particular, Bari Weiss, was also the journalist who shared editions of the infamous Twitter Files for Musk. Despite her “working with” Musk, she had opposing thoughts on how he handled it:
“The old regime at Twitter is governed by its own whims and biases and it sure looks like the new regime has the same problem. I oppose it in both cases. And I think those journalists who were reporting on a story of public importance should be reinstated,” she tweeted.
Yet, further down in that thread, she argued that journalists celebrated bans under the old regime but those same people now say that it infringes on freedom of expression.
Musk responded to her tweet saying:
“Rather than rigorously pursuing truth, you are virtue-signaling to show that you are ‘good’ in the eyes of media elite to keep one foot in both worlds”

Musk’s point may need to be said louder for the conservatives in the back — or anyone who wants to stand up to the left’s oppression for that matter.
