MATT WALSH (HOST): All right, some news on the free speech front. Elon Musk has given more details about his plans for content moderation. He tweeted this, "Talked to civil society leaders Jonathan Greenblatt, Yael Eisenstadt, Rashad Robinson, Jessica Gonzalez, Norman Chen, Derrick Johnson, Ken Hirsch and Sidney Benavidez about how Twitter will continue to combat hate and harassment and enforce its election integrity policies. Twitter will not allow anyone who is deplatformed for violating Twitter rules back on the platform until we have a clear process for doing so, which will take at least a few more weeks. Twitter's Content Moderation Council will include representatives with widely divergent views, which will certainly include the civil rights community and groups who face hate-fueled violence." 

Okay, I'm not I'm not going to claim that the Elon Musk takeover of Twitter is a bust at this point. He just got in there. It's very early, right? We need to give him time to figure it out. So I can understand all that, but this also isn't a good sign, maybe we can say. It is a it's a bad sign. Because you had a little group chat about content moderation and hate-fueled violence. Every single person in the conversation was a leftist. Every single one. And not just, like, we're not talking about Bill Maher-esque liberals. We're talking about far leftists. Every single one included. These are people with the ADL, the NAACP, other leftist advocacy groups. So he says widely divergent views, but the views that are in that group there, they diverge on the spectrum between extremely left wing and really, really extremely left wing. Like that's that's the spectrum of divergent views that he has assembled so far. And that is, that's pretty concerning. Now, again, it's still early, but it's something we should keep an eye on. 

And you know, if you really want to hear about the impact of harassment and hate and death threats and all of that on the platform, then you need to talk to conservatives and especially, in particular, you need to talk to conservatives who have faced the wrath of the trans activists because the trans activists are far and away, without even a close second, the most vicious and vile people on social media. And there is just no rule of decency and no law that they respect or will abide by. They just do not care about any of that. I know this from experience. And you know, it's like people are always talking about the, you know, people always talking about death threats. Any time a leftist says anything gets a little bit of criticism. I'm getting death threats all over the place, and, you know, maybe in some cases they're right, but I think very often this is exaggerated. What I can tell you, though, is that death threats, death wishes, you know, things like that, doxing and all of that, when I talk about that from the trans activists, it is 100% not an exaggeration. This is just it is guaranteed to happen when you go up against these people.

So, if you're really interested in having a having a full conversation about this problem, you need to bring people in who've experienced that part of it, and so far he hasn't.
