With the 2024 election looming on the horizon, Musk has begun searching for individuals to serve on a threat disruption team. According to X, the now rebranded name for Musk’s Twitter, they are seeking applications that are “passionate about protecting users from global disinformation” and “helping people find credible information online.” But who is leading the search for this tactical censorship team? None other than Aaron Rodericks, a modern age double-agent. Despite Rodericks having convinced X executives that he can help the platform be a bastion of free speech, his social media actions say otherwise.
On X, Rodericks often retweets the posts of federal government officials that are pro-censorship and defends CISA government censorship. Rodericks even does the same thing on X’s rival platform BlueSky. According to Mike Benz, the founder of the Foundation for Freedom Online, Rodericks follows “every high-level spook & censorship industry heavyweight in the world." Why has Musk neglected his promises and allowed a pro-censorship liberal to head his search for digital misinformation police? Perhaps there are factors behind the scenes that are preventing him from being the staunch supporter of free speech he aspires to be.
Musk’s portfolio of businesses can create distractions for the ambitious South African. In a recent post on X, Musk said that he does not “know what’s going on with every part of [X] all the time, but our policy worldwide is to fight for maximum freedom of speech under the law.” A nicely written response for someone well-versed in public relations, but clearly it is not an accurate statement. Rodericks is likely only one of several closeted free-speech destroyers putting on a facade of fairness and unbiased judgment at X’s headquarters. It is starting to seem like X is just the same old Twitter. Even Musk’s new X CEO has advocated for a new barrage of censorship and suppression of content deemed “lawful but awful.”
Censorship for lawful posts. That is what X’s progressive leaders believe is maximum freedom of speech under the law. This also comes at a time when AI can become weaponized to censor posts purely by perceived awfulness. And it is the double-agents like Rodericks who sign the dotted lines with Big Tech to institute these unconstitutional actions.
Maybe Musk is distracted. Or maybe he has become frustrated with the cacophony of demands by blue-haired liberals and has modified what he believes is true American free speech. Either way, there are telltale signs that point to a new wave of pro-censorship X executives that will ramp up their influence in the months leading up to the 2024 election.
So sure, Elon Musk's takeover of Twitter was good, because it was the antithesis of the Leftist's control of all things social media, but it surely wasn't the end of censoring conservative voices, and we shall see where it all leads with the upcoming, all-important POTUS election of 2024. The future is in the hands of those who can ensure fair elections.
