On Saturday, I wrote about Joe Biden’s troubling comments that the Paul Pelosi attack was due to questioning elections–and that such “talk” must be “stopped.”
Hillary Clinton followed it up with her tweet, showing this is the new liberal talking point, not just random spewing from Biden.
The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories. It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result. As citizens, we must hold them accountable for their words and the actions that follow.https://t.co/MQor4NDFeE
“The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories,” Clinton exclaims. “It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result. As citizens, we must hold them accountable for their words and the actions that follow.” She also links an article about the attack on Paul Pelosi.
Again, they’re not calling out the alleged criminal here, or even saying we must do something to address the system that doesn’t know how to deal with the mentally ill. They’re lying about Republicans and saying the Republicans must be “held accountable.” This should concern anyone who cares about free speech. Of course, she’s also using it as an election attack point against Republicans. Democrats have no options at this point; Americans are so furious at how the Democrats have destroyed the economy.
But how ironic and hypocritical that Clinton should declaim about hate and conspiracy theories, when she was involved in helping to spread a “deranged conspiracy theory” against President Donald Trump with the Steele dossier and Russia collusion. How many crazies have been whipped up by those lies? Many on the left still believe them. Many on the left believe the 2016 election was stolen by Russia for Trump, and Clinton has helped to foster that belief.
The site has now crashed, likely because of the incoming traffic generated by Musk’s tweet. To be fair, there’s a lot of speculation in there, including things without evidential support at this time.
Musk’s greater point — that there are questions that the police need to answer in the case — is true. It isn’t about Republicans or whatever lies that Hillary and Joe are pushing. It’s also true that the facts are still evolving, with some even changing, as media outlets adjust their reports.
For example, the story about the guy being in his underwear stemmed from a KTVU report, which they later pulled back. Now we’re curious to know where that report came from, what prompted them to correct it, and what he was wearing. The police have not clarified that as yet. That means, at least for the moment, that “in his underwear” isn’t an “official fact.”
But there’s a lot of confusion out there about the facts. That’s not abnormal following such an incident. Another example: “Castro nudist protester” refers to an area of San Francisco known as the Castro, it does not refer to Fidel Castro. And who is the “unknown person” who let the police in, that Politico reported? We will likely find out more as the case evolves.
But you know that Elon Musk pointing out there are questions that need to be answered to Hillary Clinton is going to cause an enormous meltdown by people on the left, who will ignore all the Democratic, voluminous spreading of conspiracy theories. The left is going to train all their efforts against Musk now. It takes some kind of bravery to drop such a comment on Hillary Clinton, knowing that. It’s also funny to consider that this is exactly the kind of comment that would have gotten someone banned in the past by the liberal Twitter police. But since he now owns Twitter–so much for that.
Musk took over Twitter this past week, and he showed that he intends to make big changes. He booted some of the top executives and he’s in the process of firing others. But he also just showed how much he may change the site by himself, by challenging the powers that be.
