The left’s disdain for freedom of speech is increasingly evident; most recently in the case of Twitter and its recent takeover by Elon Musk. Freedom of speech is so terrifying to progressive liberals, that a group of “left-wing organizations has reached out to Twitter’s top advertisers, urging them to boycott the platform unless new owner Elon Musk commits to enforcing the company’s existing content moderation guidelines” reports Just The News.

The censorship loving groups include the NAACP, the Center for American Progress, GLAAD, and the Global Project Against Hate and Extremism. “If Elon Musk follows through with just a fraction of what he has already committed to doing, then Twitter will not and can not be a safe platform for brands. Urgent action is needed by advertisers,” the groups wrote.

The letter was sent to Twitter’s top 20 advertising partners including Amazon, Apple, Meta Platforms, Google and Disney. The groups warned that Musk would attempt to assuage their concerns but noted that the advertisers were the only entities able to in effect, stop the changes at the company.

The letter continued, “We, the undersigned organizations, call on you to notify Musk and publicly commit that you will cease all advertising on Twitter globally if he follows through on his plans to undermine brand safety and community standards, including gutting content moderation,” the group wrote in its letter to the platform’s top advertisers, per The Hill. “This means that Musk must not roll back the basic moderation practices Twitter already has on the books now and must commit to actually enforcing those rules.”

“Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter came with his promise to advertisers like you that the social network would not transform into a ‘free-for-all hellscape’ and would remain ‘warm and welcoming to all.’ But beware: Musk’s promises in no way accurately portray his plans for Twitter, nor are they a reflection of the evolving reality of the platform as it transforms by the minute under Musk,” they wrote.
