Twitter/X CEO All In on Censoring ‘Hate Speech’

Linda Yaccarino, Elon Musk’s CEO of Twitter/X, just declared that her platform is pro-free speech — except when it’s not, because hate speech is bad. And no, she did not define what “hate speech” is.

It is reasonable for platforms to have some rules; for instance, against direct endorsements of terrorism. But, as we all know by now, there’s all kinds of speech that constantly get censored online, including on Twitter/X, simply because the elites in charge don’t happen to like it. This is certainly true of “hate speech,” which is a vague and convenient leftist term that can be applied to anything that triggers leftists’ delicate intolerance for truth and rational disagreement. And Yaccarino is firmly and publicly stating her determination to target this undefined hate speech, justifying her policy by claiming to be combating anti-Semitism. So, where is Elon Musk, that great champion of free speech? Off schmoozingChinese Communist dictators again?

Yaccarino bragged, “Last year we removed millions of pieces of content and suspended just as many accounts that violated our Terms of Service, including Violent speech and Hateful conduct policy.”
