Musk Claims To Face “Coordinated” Attacks From the Left
(LibertySociety.com) – On November 29, billionaire Elon Musk claimed to be the victim of a “coordinated” attack by a group of Democrats. The revelation was in response to a tweet about the Twitter CEO becoming more vocal in politics as of late. The poster, Jason DeBolt, said Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) went after the businessman for “no reason.” Musk chimed in to say the attack involved more than just the two.
Several other major Democrat politicians attacked me too, all around the same time. It was coordinated.
Outside of party leadership and independents like Manchin, they are essentially actors on the political stage, not directors or script writers.

The Tesla CEO then said most of the politicians against him simply say what they’re told; someone else is pulling the strings. He didn’t elaborate further.
Since Musk closed the deal to purchase Twitter, he’s been under great scrutiny. His stated intention when buying the platform was to restore free speech, but many say he’s taken the initiative too far. The new platform owner restored several previously banned accounts, including that of former President Donald Trump, who has yet to return to Twitter. He also let Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) back on the platform, despite the accusations against her for spreading COVID-19 misinformation.
Warren said Musk’s ownership of Twitter was “dangerous.” She said no one person should have that much power over communications in the US. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said while he believes in the First Amendment, he remains concerned about the content now being shared on the platform.
