Elon Musk Kind Of Stands Up Against Censorship: “Freedom of Speech is Fundamental”

    Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla has a scathing response for the United States’ SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) after they attempted to tell him what he’s allowed to Tweet about. “I want to be clear. I do not respect the SEC. I do not respect them,” Musk said.

    As part of a deal over the securities fraud charge for his tweets about taking Tesla private, the entrepreneur agreed to step down as chairman and establish “additional controls and procedures” for his communications. “The only tweets that would have to be, say, reviewed would be if a tweet had a probability of causing a movement in the stock,” he clarified in a wide-ranging interview with 60 Minutes. When prodded further by host Lesley Stahl, Musk said: “Yeah, I mean otherwise it’s, “Hello, First Amendment.” Like Freedom of Speech is fundamental.” 

    Musk didn’t stop berating the SEC, which he has previously dubbed the “Shortseller Enrichment Commission” on Twitter, this time adding: “I want to be clear. I do not respect the SEC. I do not respect them.” Musk claims he’s only following the orders of the SEC because he respects the U.S.’s “justice system.” Is that the same justice system that’s currently attempting to stifle Musk’s free speech? Perhaps Musk just hasn’t gotten the memo yet that the entire government system (including the “justice system”) is wholly broken to the point that nothing short of scraping it will solve.

    He also said that he handpicked Robyn Denholm as Tesla’s new board chair and that aside from not wanting to be chairman again, he would prefer “to have no titles at all.”

    This comes on the heels of news of ever-increasing censorship by social media platforms. According to a previous SHTFPlan report, John Stossel has recently said that Google and Facebook aren’t just guilty of censorship, but they cross “the creepy line” of suppression of speech daily. Both companies have an obvious agenda, and they have proven that they will silence those who dissent.

    Any outspoken disdain for the government will be silenced using Communist and Nazi-style techniques.

        I want to be free, not to pay into your cheesy Ponzi schemes, I would say.

          Beaumont, agreed about the ponzi schemes. The article is correct about the entire govt. system has to be scrapped and start all over from scratch. That’s the only hope I see for this country.

            I challenge the readers to find speech, which is empowering and enabling.

        What hypocrisy! Elon Musk never gave a damn about freedom of speech until it start affecting him personally. I trust him about as far as I could throw him. I still say his Tesla POS is doomed to failure.

        The American people have fully supported their financial enslavement having been chopped into two opposing blocks to maintain control. Police state America in full effect with orders to steal from and kill all objectors. Tyranny sits well with a sleeping public who think they are free and that the government has their best interests covered. A massive con job results in exactly what we follow as representative government is a total farce.

        Did you ever notice the Big Boys always despise the Government except when it’s giving them subsidies and passing laws that give them special favors. Trekker Out.

        Sorry , But Elon is a Moron , I have been fighting his stupid company Solar City for four years trying to get help with our monitoring system , They have lied , lost paperwork , and have shown that they have no common sense . If he runs Tesla half as bad as SS He wont be making it one quarter of the way to Mars anytime soon . And if the pothead doe’s make it, I hope he stays . The uber rich Elites think they are so much smarter , Their not , most of the time just lucky . I worked for two multi , Multi Millionares and what they had in common was being to stupid to not give up , Not one of them could tie their own shoes, let alone run their companys . Good luck if you buy any of his crap !!!
