CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): We've said this very clearly. We don't love the idea of rich people determining our speech. But I want to win. And Musk coming in and fighting for the liberation of people to speak is a great thing. We want to win. We want victory. And so while the other side, all of a sudden now parades around their principle – you know, the kind of a principled-type narrative like, well, it's against our principles. Well, they've never cared about principles. The left has only cared victory, which is one of the reasons why they've been so successful the last couple decades. Maybe it's time for we as conservatives start to realize that, is it ideal to have the world's richest man come in and have to buy a company. Of course, it's not ideal, but it's necessary right now. It's all we have. The tweets coming out against Elon Musk is just laughable. They're – leaving Twitter is trending on Twitter. Good. Go build your own.

An article came out from the Urban League, whatever that is. The National Urban League pressed Twitter's Board of Directors to consult with the civil rights community before making a decision on Elon Musk's bid for the company. Of course, Remember, when they insert racial politics into our conversation, they want to use this to be able to stop merger acquisitions they don't like, change voting laws, it's always the final card, The race card. The National Urban League – this is a great one of the great quotes ever, In the history of self-irony in the history of paradox statements is this. I found this earlier. It's just unbelievable. Okay. Yeah. This area. It's unbelievable. This is my favorite. The National Urban Urban league believes that Elon Musk owning could have serious implications on users' civil rights. So the fact that Elon Musk wants to give people their civil rights back to speak is a big concern for the National Urban League – that people might lose their civil rights. The National Urban League says, quote, without key protections and safeguards, much of the concerning activity that we see on Twitter including white supremacist propaganda, racial and religious hatred, voter suppression through election disinformation, algorithm bias and discrimination, and the hardening of our natural discourse are likely to proliferate under Musk's ownership. I love how much they hate him. This is really dumb for the left by the way. Do you wanna have Tony Stark on your team or not?

I mean, the left, they're so stupid not because we've earned it, not because we deserve it. But just because we're not – then the American right is now inheriting Elon Musk to kind just be an ally. A good job, you just lost, like, the coolest most interesting person alive. Whether you like him or not, again I have a mixed opinion on some of the stuff he does, but he's certainly not boring.

The potential to negatively impact millions, The Urban League says, directly undermine our nation's culture and democracy indirectly and is exponentially damaging. And should be part of your analysis and reviewing this or any other purchase. The National Urban League is super worried that if people are able to speak, people will no longer be able to speak.

Remember, the party that says that men can become pregnant, they're the ones that want to control misinformation on the internet. The party that tells you that men can menstruate, they're the ones that are really worried about misinformation. The party that is really worried about misinformation is the one that told us that Hunter Biden's laptop was Russian disinformation. The party that's really worried about disinformation is the one that said Border Patrol was on horseback whipping migrants. The party that's really worried about misinformation and disinformation told us the vaccine was a hundred percent safe and effective, would prevent against infection and would prevent against death.
