Elon Musk Declares War on Apple After Tech Giant’s Alleged Threat to Twitter

We need only look to the collusion of Big Tech titans to censor the explosive Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the 2020 election to know how they operate against conservatives. Buoyed by their success in swaying a presidential election, they collaborated once more in January 2021 to remove social media platform Parler from their app stores and phones essentially putting the website on life support. Finally, Amazon Web Services pitched in to terminate its hosting contract with the company.

The full blown hysteria over Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter continues unabated and now the big guns are getting involved. Last week, Phil Schiller, the head of the Apple App Store, deleted his Twitter account. Seeing the writing on the wall after that very telling move, Musk preemptively informed users he would develop an alternative phone if Google and Apple were to deplatform the social media site.

On Monday, Musk announced that Apple had pulled most of its advertising from Twitter.

Musk also confirmed that Apple has threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store. He asks why, but he already knows why. Free speech is like kryptonite to progressives. It’s the only thing that can diminish their power.

He also shared information about a 30 percent tax on purchases made through their App Store. This was followed by a meme offering the choice of paying 30 percent or going to war. The car shown in the meme has clearly decided to go to war.

Is this the billionaire’s way of telling us he’s planning to go to war against Apple?

In a recent New York Times op-ed, Yoel Roth, Twitter’s former head of “Trust and Safety,” who was responsible for censoring the New York Post’s Hunter Biden story, threatened Musk. He wrote that Twitter would be booted from Google and Apple’s app stores, “making it more difficult for potential billions of users to obtain Twitter services. This gives Apple and Google enormous power to shape the decisions Twitter makes.”

Elon Musk did not become the world’s richest man by backing away from challenges and my guess is that the self-described “free-speech absolutist” will not be deterred from his goal of turning Twitter into a thriving forum for free speech.

Apple’s unethical actions may have stopped Parler two years ago, but the company has overcome those obstacles and is currently flourishing. If Parler can prevail, Musk can too.

In fact, the company’s provocations may have just provided the catalyst for a Big Tech civil war. And Musk’s request for transparency may just be the opening salvo.

A little sunlight on the tech giant will be a good thing for the American people.

For Apple itself, perhaps not so much.
