RE: Elon Musk-Freedom of Speech
Oh, boy. It's an opinion piece which you can disagree with if you like, but it has absolutely nothing to do with his support of free speech.

Actually, it is pretty much a nothing piece and I am surprised the NY Times published it, but it's certainly not what you and Fox are making a big deal out of.

Of course Musk stands accused of far worse things. Here is a little list compiled by Vanity Fair:
Claiming in March 2020 that people worried about the coronavirus were "dumb"
Predicting on March 19, 2020, that the U.S. was going to have "close to zero new cases" by the end of April
Questioning the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines, and baselessly asserting that there were "quite a few negative reactions" to getting a second shot
Likening Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau to Hitler
Saying the U.S. government shouldn?t provide subsidies to companies after receiving billions in subsidies from the U.S government
Using Twitter to engage in securities fraud
Tweeting, "Pronouns suck"
Tweeting misogynistic things at Senator Elizabeth Warren because she said he should pay more in taxes
Writing to Bernie Sanders, who also thinks the richest man in the world should pay more in taxes, "I keep forgetting that you?re still alive"
Tweeting dumb, sexist jokes
Tweeting a photo of Bill Gates and writing, "in case u need to lose a boner fast"
Tweeting in 2018 that Tesla factory workers could lose their stock options if they unionized
Baselessly accusing a British cave diver instrumental in rescuing a trapped football team of being a "pedo guy" because he, like others, said Musk?s idea to send in a submarine wouldn?t work
While off-line, and more consequentially:

Reopening a Tesla factory in violation of public health orders, where 450 cases were subsequently recorded
Running a company (Tesla) that was ordered to pay nearly $137 million to a former Black employee who said the company ignored repeated complaints that he was called the N-word and that his colleagues "had drawn swastikas and scratched a racial epithet in a bathroom stall and left drawings of derogatory caricatures of Black children around the factory." (In a message to Tesla employees, a human resources executive downplayed the man?s allegations, noting he was a contractor, not a full-time staffer, and that other witnesses had said that while they heard racial slurs, they were used in a "friendly" manner. The H.R. executive added that the company was "not perfect" at the time of the incidents, and "is still not perfect," but has "come a long way.")
Running a company (Tesla), where a female worker said sexual harassment was "rampant," alleging "nightmarish conditions" and a factory that "more resembles a crude, archaic construction site or frat house than a cutting-edge company in the heart of the progressive San Francisco Bay area." (The company did not respond to multiple requests for comment from The Washington Post, which noted Tesla "does not typically respond to press inquiries.")
Running a company (Tesla) that employees have called a "modern-day sweatshop" (In response, Telsa said it abided by California laws.)
Attempting to "destroy a Tesla whistleblower"
Reportedly exploding at "executives and lower-ranking workers" alike, and allegedly firing people who disagreed with him (Musk has denied allegations that he goes on firing sprees)
Announcing Tesla?s headquarters would move to Texas one month after the state effectively banned all abortions
Paying a private investigator $50,000 to dig up dirt on the cave diver he called "pedo guy"

Well, the NY times is perfectly entitled to call Musk what it likes - free speech, innit?

RE: Elon Musk-Freedom of Speech
Now, Emma, you know perfectly well it's only 'real' free speech if it's something you agree with.

If an opponent says something that is not free speech but the deranged ranting of a satanist cult - and anyway they only read it off the teleprompter.

RE: Elon Musk-Freedom of Speech
Oh, yeah. Duh, silly me. I forgot that free speech is freedom from consequence only for the chosen few. Musk can say what he likes and noone else can call him out on it. Right, got it, I will try to remember that.
Free speech = right to say stuff, but does not = right to challenge said stuff if person doing the saying has shedloads of cash.

And I'd almost forgotten that Musk was an early-adopter of the right-wing habit of calling anyone who disagrees with them a pedophile.

Linda...how embarrassing that you actually think Elon is on your side...like Trump, right? He's a paid and trained agent, ok? Got it? Please take time to see/hear/behold truth. Truth has nothing to do with Elon or Trump! Got it??
