Former Reddit CEO Tries to Make ‘Free-Speechers’ Label an Insult

Whether or not you think Elon Musk’s 9.2 percent stake in Twitter will stop or at least reduce the company’s undisguised efforts to censor conservative content on their platform, this news has certainly catapulted the issue of free speech into the national conversation.

Simultaneous admissions from major media outlets that the Hunter Biden laptop story they worked so hard to suppress ahead of the November 2020 election is real, makes the issue even more relevant. If the media is able to sway a U.S. presidential election via active censorship of true stories, they have too much power and it needs to be reckoned with.

Former Reddit CEO Ellen K. Pao has just provided us with the first clue as to how the left will fight back against calls for free speech in America – ridicule and insults.

Free-speechers are, you guessed it, racists, Pao tells her followers. “Free-speechers really just want to be able to use racist slurs.”

Pao’s second tweet could actually have been written by a conservative about liberals.

Since when did advocating for free speech become something to be ashamed of? America was founded upon the freedom of expression.

Is Pao proud to be pro-censorship? No leftist would ever admit such a thing. They must hide their need to crush content they disagree with by deeming it hate speech and accusing the speaker or writer of racism.

Pao’s entire premise is, of course, absurd. She reached into the Democrats’ bag of tricks and drew the one tool that’s never let them down – the race card. The problem is that it’s been diminished by overuse and no longer works like it used to. As yesterday’s conspiracy theories turn into today’s news at an alarming rate, the left’s credibility is now in shambles.

It’s hard to believe that Pao actually received such a moronic email, but let’s take her at her word. In order for free speech to work, all speech must be allowed. Who among us is qualified to judge what is true and what is false? Surely not the leaders of Big Tech.

When the left can’t win an argument based on its merits, they either pull out the race card or they ridicule their opponent.

There’s a quote that frequently pops up in internet debates about free speech. Some attribute the quote to Socrates, but others disagree on its origin. At any rate, it reads: “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”

Conservatives who questioned the zoonotic origin theory of COVID-19 were labeled conspiracy theorists. When Democrats pushed the uncorroborated Steele dossier as evidence that former President Donald Trump was an agent of Russia, and Republicans said it was a set up perpetrated by Hillary Clinton supporters, they were smeared. When Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop surfaced shortly before the election, they said Republicans were trying to promote Russian disinformation.

Currently, Democrats are maintaining the fiction that an insurrection took place on Jan. 6, 2021, and that Trump is responsible. He must be prosecuted in order to save democracy.

Most of the responses to Pao’s tweet show that Americans aren’t quite buying it. Here are a few of them.

The best response of all pointed out the sheer lunacy of Pao’s argument. It said: “Imagine calling someone a ‘free-speecher’ and thinking you’re winning.”

  1. So, Ellen.

    So, at the end of the day, you lefties want to be able to call everything you don’t like, racist, sexist, or homophobic.

    Oh, the circle goes round and round.

    I never knew stupid speech was so protected. Ellen has it locked down, while saying anything she doesn’t like is stupid, racist, or something else ridiculous. Up must be down.
