In a recent conversation with CNBC, the brilliant entrepreneur Elon Musk, who also happens to be the CEO of Twitter, did something that always confounds and infuriates the left: he defended his right to speak his mind. The reporter was taken aback by Musk’s unwavering stand for free expression; he refused to be cowed by the biased media’s attempts to shame him into submission.
The NBC reporter confronted Musk over his tweet about George Soros, insinuating that his motivation for sharing his views was suspect. The reporter then claimed that Musk’s outspokenness would further divide the country and that he was lighting the fuse on a powder keg. With conviction and clarity, Musk categorically dismissed the reporter’s disingenuous inquiry and defended his right to speak freely.
“I have every right to say whatever I want,” retorted Musk, “and if I lose money from it, then so be it. Freedom of speech is that important to me.”
Despite the interviewer’s unstinting efforts to cow him into submission, Musk remained resolute. He noted that his opinions might alienate some of his customers, but he was willing to pay the price. Musk emphasized that his commitment to free speech and individual liberty was non-negotiable.
It’s intriguing how Elon’s defense of his right to speak freely rattled the reporter so much; are they not used to hearing people on their shows make such strong statements? Regardless, one thing is clear: Elon Musk remains a champion of individual freedom and the right to express one’s ideas without fear of censorship or reprisal. Musk’s stalwart defense of the First Amendment has earned him well-deserved plaudits from the right.
