Elon Musk Asks Twitter Critical Question About Death Threats Against Libs Of TikTok

Elon Musk just continues to make himself look like a pretty awesome guy, as he pressed Twitter about why they are allowing the Libs of TikTok account to receive death threats and seemingly doing nothing about it.

For those who might now be up to speed, Libs of TikTok is an account on social media platform Twitter that takes strange, and often times disturbing, videos and events from liberal activists, and shares them with the world, often with a comedic bent, but not always, in order to expose the darkness of the political left to the rest of the country.

However, according to a report from The Post Millennial, she’s faced a ton of harassment thanks in large part to propagandists in the mainstream media accusing her account of “inciting violence” against individuals in the LGBTQ+ community.

How many more letters are we going to add to that monstrosity? I wasted nearly a decade of my life trying to type that out. Give it a rest already.

“The threats of violence and harassment came after a Media Matters employee and other left-wing journalists began a Twitter campaign to get Libs of TikTok permanently removed from the platform for their content, claiming the account was going to be responsible for the death of LGBTQ+ individuals,” the Post Millennial reported.

The woman behind the Libs of TikTok account put up a post about the threats she has been getting, saying, “I have now received about a dozen death threats after radical leftists accused me of being a domestic terrorist extremist. Twitter has not removed any of the accounts of those who sent the threats.”

Her post caught the attention of Elon Musk whose deal to purchase Twitter was finally approved. He then posted, [email protected]

Journalist Ian Miles Cheong responded to Musk’s tweet with one of his own, saying, “On a just platform, everyone would be treated equally. As it is, you can be banned for merely criticizing (not even threatening) woke progressives, but they can send conservatives death threats without any repercussions.”

“A platform cannot be considered inclusive or fair if it is biased against half the country,” Musk went on to say in a response to Cheong.https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1536555363453095937?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1536555363453095937%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthepostmillennial.com%2Felon-musk-questions-why-twitter-allows-death-threats-against-libs-of-tiktok

“Musk’s involvement comes after a number of prominent figures reached out to him regarding the harassment of Libs of TikTok, and Libs of TikTok leaking internal Twitter communications showing Twitter employees discussing the potential ban of their account,” the PM report said.

The report continued, “The communications leaked by Libs of TikTok showed a variety of concerning dialogue between Twitter employees discussing the ban, with one employee stating, ‘We successfully de-platformed Trump, I don’t think de-platforming Libs of TikTok will cause a mass exodus.’”

Jack Posobiec just so happened to take notice of the weightiness of both the leak and the involvement of Musk, tweeting, “As far as I know [Libs of TikTok] is one of the first people to ever leak actual internal comms from within Twitter. And now she is talking to [Elon Musk]. Things just got a whole lot more interesting.”

It will be interesting to see what Musk will do to help rectify these kind of situations in the future as he takes the helm of Twitter. It’s not that conservatives want the platform to favor them. We just want things to be fair and balanced for all users, regardless of what side of the political spectrum someone is on.

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director’s Resignation

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director's Resignation

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – President Donald Trump responded to Kimberly Cheatle’s statement on Tuesday that she was leaving her role as director of the Secret Service due to criticism of the way her organization handled the recent attempt on the previous president’s life.

Trump said, “She never gave me proper protection, so I ended up having to take a bullet for democracy,” in an afternoon interview with Fox News Digital.

He said that his campaign made multiple requests for more protection, which the agency either flatly denied or disregarded.

“Many requests were made by on-site Secret Service for more people, always with a turn down or no response,” Trump told the news outlet. “I have the biggest crowds in history, and they should be treated accordingly.”

He added, “Big improvements have been made over the last week,” Fox News Digital reported.

Cheatle announced her resignation in writing to the Secret Service on Tuesday morning, despite her earlier refusal to do so.

“To the Men and Women of the U.S. Secret Service, The Secret Service’s solemn mission is to protect our nation’s leaders and financial infrastructure,” Cheatle wrote. “On July 13th, we fell short on that mission.”

She was under pressure to step down during Monday’s House Oversight Committee hearing, as she acknowledged that the agency’s reaction to the attempted assassination was a “failure.” This pressure came from all sides of the aisle.

According to a recent press release, United States Representative Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) submitted a motion that evening that would have forced a vote in the House to impeach Cheatle following her initial refusal to step down on Monday.

In response to Mace’s question during the hearing on whether the agency’s response was “a colossal failure,” the director said, “Yes.” Mace attacked the Secret Service for its lack of openness, pointing out that Cheatle’s testimony had to be subpoenaed by legislators.

Before the hearing, she accused the director of leaking her opening statement to several media sites.

When asked how often the agency had turned down the Trump campaign’s demands for more security throughout her testimony, Cheatle remained silent.

During the committee’s opening remarks, she acknowledged that the Secret Service’s reaction to the attempted assassination was “the most significant operational failure of the agency in decades.”

Nevertheless, she insisted that she was “the best person” to run the organization then.

President Joe Biden issued a statement acknowledging Cheatle’s decision and expressing gratitude for her service on Tuesday afternoon, following her resignation in response to the growing calls for her resignation.

“As a leader, it takes honor, courage, and incredible integrity to take full responsibility for an organization tasked with one of the most challenging jobs in public service,” the statement read. “The independent review to get to the bottom of what happened on July 13th continues, and I look forward to assessing its conclusions. We all know what happened that day can never happen again.”

During her hearing before the committee on Monday, Cheatle stated that the agency’s ongoing initial internal assessment would take around sixty days.

Do you believe there should be a criminal investigation into the Secret Service Director’s lack of security for President Trump?

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The competition to become Vice President Kamala Harris’s running partner is intensifying. It has been reported that her campaign has sent screening papers to several prominent Democrats.

Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Governor Josh Shapiro (D-PA), seen as strong candidates from crucial battleground states, are leading the pack.

Harris’s campaign carefully evaluates potential vice presidential candidates as she seeks the Democratic presidential nomination.

Alongside Kelly and Shapiro, governors Roy Cooper (D-NC), Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), Tim Walz (D-MN), and J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) have also been given vetting paperwork. However, Pritzker has denied receiving such materials.

One notable omission from the list is Governor Andy Beshear (D-KY), who many see as a leading contender.

Beshear stated that despite vigorous campaigning for the position, he had not received any correspondence from the Harris campaign concerning the vice-presidential screening procedure.

The selection process is underway as Harris’s team looks to enhance its ticket with a running mate who will appeal to a wide range of voters and strengthen support in key states.

Kelly and Shapiro are perceived as centrist leaders who, due to their considerable political backgrounds, have the potential to draw in moderate voters.

Kelly, the current senator from Arizona and a former astronaut, has a proven track record in Arizona.

At the same time, Shapiro’s leadership in Pennsylvania is distinguished by his emphasis on progressive ideals and his ability to win elections in a swing state.

The main goal of her campaign plan seems to be selecting a running mate who can enhance Harris’s program and increase the Democratic ticket’s appeal to a wide range of voters in essential areas and demographics.

The fact that there are several governors indicates that candidates with executive expertise and a track record of successful leadership are preferred.

The screening process is anticipated to be rigorous, involving a detailed review of the candidates’ public personas and political positions and significant background investigations.

The campaign’s final choice will probably try to strike a compromise between political tactics and the requirement for a solid and cooperative alliance in the White House.

As the Democratic National Convention draws near, there is growing conjecture and expectation over Harris’s final choice for her ticket partner.

The chosen vice-presidential candidate will be crucial to the party’s unity and mobilization of the electorate before the November election.

Does it matter who Harris selects as her VP as she goes against the Trump/Vance ticket?

On Sunday afternoon, Biden declared his plan and promised to provide further details shortly.

“It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as your President,” Biden’s statement read. “And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term.”

Although Vice President Kamala Harris was expressly endorsed as his successor, he congratulated her in his statement for “being an extraordinary partner in all this work.”

But Biden later gave “my full support and endorsement for Kamala to be the nominee of our party this year” in a statement uploaded on X.

Then, in a powerful message to Democrats, Biden urged them to unite and defeat Trump, emphasizing the importance of collective action in the upcoming election.

Do you believe VP Kamala Harris will be the 2024 Democratic presidential nominee?
