U. Pittsburgh Student Newspaper: Elon Musk Makes Twitter an ‘Unsafe’ Environment

“Bigoted people will feel empowered to abuse Twitter to spread hateful rhetoric with the lack of regulations”

The ‘unsafe’ argument is an old favorite of the campus left. It’s stupid and untrue. The left advocated defunding the police. They don’t get to lecture the rest of us about safety.

Campus Reform reports:

Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover will create ‘unsafe environment,’ editorial board argues

The Pitt News, the University of Pittsburgh’s (UPitt) student-run newspaper, recently published an editorial in opposition of Elon Musk’s $44B Twitter purchase.

The editorial, “Elon Musk’s ideas for Twitter set a negative precedent for the platform,” accuses Musk of making the social media platform “less accessible” and “unsafe.”

“Musk’s plans for Twitter will likely make the platform less accessible despite his ‘free speech’ promise, and will create an unsafe environment where bigoted people will have the platform to spread hateful speech,” the board wrote.

The board also worried that Musk might reinstate President Donald Trump’s and Alex Jones’ accounts, calling the possibility “disturbing.” They also alleged charging for verification is “extremely dangerous” and could lead to the spread of “misinformation.”

While Musk intended to charge verified accounts $20/month to keep their status, he recently decreased his plan to $8/month, according to a Twitter exchange between Musk and New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“Musk’s plans for Twitter could create problematic precedents for all social media platforms. Bigoted people will feel empowered to abuse Twitter to spread hateful rhetoric with the lack of regulations on Musk’s Twitter,” the editorial concluded.

Sal Zuber, a UPitt student and president of the school’s College Republicans, called out the editorial board for making assumptions about Twitter users.

“Assuming that people can’t think for themselves and will believe literally anything in their feed is disgusting,” Zuber told Campus Reform.

Newsflash, snowflakes:

If you feel unsafe on Twitter? THEN GET OFF OF IT.

It was never designed to be a safe space. It was designed to be a social media platform, you know SOCIAL? Like talking to people?

If you want a safe space-go into your room, shut the door, and pull out a coloring book and crayons, because that’s the stunted emotional growth that can best be expected from your type.

How can Musk be a bigot? For years, we’ve been told that African Americans can’t be bigoted.

“Safety” to the Dem snowflakes is being wrapped in warm sheets, cookies and comfort dogs when faced with something they don’t agree with but can’t counter with anything like logic or facts.

The word has been bastardized by the left as have others, such as “justice,” “equity,” “racism,” “fairness,” and “free speech.” They actually think Marxism is beneficial to society!!! How absurd is that? Clearly, history is not a part of their current maleducation.

To them, and their third grade level intellect, nothing short of a temper tantrum should be the reaction to any resistance to their will. They love to stamp their little feet in college newspaper “editorials” and opinions, a method that is continued in current “news”papers, like the NYTimes or WaPo.

The infantilism that college produces is simply astounding.

Unsafe?
Then stay away!
Muh private service, can do anything they want.
Right?

Drop the entire newspaper staph in Philadelphia’s Kensington district for the night. They will learn what real “unsafe” is.

Memo for Pittsburgh kids: The world is unsafe. Life is unsafe. Deal with it or find a cave and hunker down there for the rest of your short, nasty, and brutish existences.
