FCC Commissioner Rejects Calls To Block Sale Of Twitter To Elon Musk, Slams ‘Hard Left’ For Opposing Free Speech

“The FCC has no authority to block Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, and to suggest otherwise is absurd,” Carr stated, rebuking left wing activists.

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr shot down calls from left-wing activists for the government agency to block African-American tech philanthropist Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, and criticized the “hard left” for believing “the free exchange of ideas is incompatible with the outcomes that they want to see at the ballot box.”

“Yesterday, the Open Markets Institute issued a release that called for the FCC, FTC, and DOJ to block Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter,” the FCC said in a statement released on Wednesday.

“They argue that the transaction poses a “direct threat to American democracy and free speech,” the statement continued. “And their release cites to the Telegraph Act of 1860, among other statutory authorities, in the context of arguing that these federal agencies have authority to block the deal.”

“The FCC has no authority to block Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, and to suggest otherwise is absurd,” Carr stated. “I would welcome the full FCC making it clear that we will not entertain these types of frivolous arguments.”

The commissioner also defended the free exchange of ideas during an appearance on cable news.

“There was a pivot point in this country that I think came around 2016 when people started to reach the view, particularly among the hard left, that the free exchange of ideas is incompatible with the outcomes that they want to see at the ballot box,” Carr said in an interview with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo.

“The moment that we insist that everyone think the same way we do, our democratic way of life is in danger,” the commissioner continued. “And it’s not just this idea that they don’t want to hear divergent views, they don’t want those views to exist. They don’t want people to be able to exchange political information.”

“I’m hopeful that Elon Musk is going to bend Twitter’s content moderation towards a greater embrace of free speech,” Carr concluded.

    The left is absolutely terrified that the truth may somehow leak past their censors.

        Left anarchists maybe, but not anarcho-capitalists like many.

    The main threats to free speech are, communist China,Russia, democratic socialism, global elitists, the DNC and the main stream media… There are others. But the narrative being pushed by democrats is, ‘if people are allowed to speak freely on Twitter, then democracy will end’. Huh? Yeah. Liberalism is a mental disorder. We had better address the REAL PROBLEM, which is liberalism. Their agenda is VERY APPARENT. The ‘greater good’ they seek is tyrannical and oppressive. Big time.

    You will notice it’s always the left (democrats) that want to censor. It’s always the left that wants to quash free speech and open discussions. It’s always the left that wants to commit violence against those they disagree with.

      The left needs to be put in a safe zone like Antarctica and NEVER let out again. EVER. It would be fun to watch them destroy themselves instead of taking us with them.

    FIRST AMENDMENT WARNING!

    The First Amendment’s “free” speech isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be.

    To begin with, to promote or defend the First Amendment’s religious freedom is to be guilty of violating the First Commandment.

    Religious Freedom and Christian Liberty are NOT the same thing. In fact, Christian Liberty (aka biblical dominion) was sacrificed on the altar Religious Freedom.

    Without the parameters of the Bible’s moral law, the First Amendment has proven to be a toxic brew. For example, Amendment 1 condemns the prohibition of speech, whether spoken or written. Does the Bible provide for free speech or does it limit speech? What about freedom of speech and freedom of the press as it concerns Yahweh Himself? Does God grant us freedom to curse Him or blaspheme His name?

    On the other hand, freedom of speech and freedom of the press is used to provide protection for those who promote false religions, in utero infanticide, sodomy, drug abuse, violence, obscenities, and other abominations condemned by Yahweh.

    The provision in Amendment 1 for United States citizens to assemble peaceably appears innocuous. But is it harmless to give sodomites, infanticide advocates, and Satanists the right to assemble peaceably? If you are a proponent of the Constitution and a defender of Amendment 1, you must also champion the rights of such criminals and anti-Christians to assemble and promote their wicked agendas.

    Homosexuals and infant assassins claim freedom of speech and the right to assemble to combat Christians who speak out or assemble against these heinous people and their brazen debauchery. By labeling what Christians do as hate crimes, these immoral people are able to employ Amendment 1 against Christians speaking and/or assembling against these atrocities.

    According to the Bill of Rights, it is the alleged religious right of these sodomites, baby killers, and Satanists to use Amendment 1 against Christians.

    For more, see Chapter 11 “Amendment 1: Government-Sanctioned Polytheism” of free online book “Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective” at Bible versus Constitution dot org. Click on the top entry on our Online Books page and scroll down to Chapter 11.
