New York(CNN)Twitter on Thursday evening banned the accounts of several high-profile journalists from top news organizations without explanation, apparently marking a significant attempt by new owner Elon Musk to wield his unilateral authority over the platform.

The accounts belonging to CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan, The New York Times’ Ryan Mac, The Washington Post’s Drew Harwell and other journalists who have covered Musk aggressively in recent weeks were all abruptly permanently suspended. The account of progressive independent journalist Aaron Rupar was also banned.

“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

We are in warfare; in case you haven’t noticed. Do I wish Twitter would become a true Free Speech platform? Yes. But the problem is that we cannot trust our adversaries to play by a set of rules that covers everybody fairly. And since we are at war, fair is stupid. They do not want a peaceful and rational exchange of ideas to find solutions, they want to win all the marbles. Well, so do I and so should you.

They do not like being treated like we did? Fuck them and enjoy their rage and tears. Trying to pat Cujo and the head and say, “who is the good boy?” will not stop the rabid canine from ripping your throat. The same applies to the Liberals.

And before I forget, what was the eternal excuse we were given before Musk bought Twitter? Oh yes!

  1. News this morning is reporting that they were tweeting his real time location. We all know the purpose of that.

    1. Not to be a speech nazi, “but I could care less” means you care, at least some. The proper term is “I could not care less”. In other words, I don’t give a shit about their feelings and hope they get more butthurt. With a bigger butthurting instrument.

  2. Attempting to exercise his authority? Seems to me he did, pretty much. No “attempt” about it (as the way they phrased it implies either to be tried in the futures or tried but failed).

  3. Here’s what happened — Wednesday the car with Musk’s son was followed, blocked, and attacked by a masked thug who either thought Musk was in the car or was fine with terrorizing a kid. Musk announced a new Twitter policy that posting someone’s location in real-time was the same as doxxing and would get you banned. A 24-hour delay on tracking was OK.

    So a bunch of people who think rules don’t apply to them, particularly those who adhere to the journalistic credo that your right to know supercedes your right to exist, started publicizing the site that tracks Musk’s location in real-time.

    And they got banned.

    And now they’re whining that it was “retaliation”.

    many time, many ways,

    if not for double standards, the Left would have none.
