Elon Musk Argues KKK Hoods Good for “Edgy” Expression and Protecting Public Image

Edgy. That’s the term the misogynist hate platform Twitter has started using to justify why it has started deploying digital Klan hoods to protect toxic accounts from accountability. I mean edgy accounts.

Musk and his engineers say that the update is a matter of encouraging free expression. “Important to allow people to like posts without getting attacked for doing so!” Musk argues. His director of engineering says, “Public likes are incentivizing the wrong behavior. For example, many people feel discouraged from liking content that might be ‘edgy’ in fear of retaliation from trolls, or to protect their public image.”

One obviously “gaslit” part of this is how Elon Musk runs multiple inauthentic user accounts where he can like things without any affect on his public image.

On the one hand he argues that he doesn’t want any inauthentic accounts on a platform (while running his own inauthentic accounts), and then on the other hand he argues he doesn’t want people on the platform to be seen for who they are. Nothing means anything, there is no truth, only the “will” of dear leader that changes by the minute to suit his own desires.

Pretty sure in other words his flamingly obvious “gaslit” stance means he really wants to censor and curate his platform into the single largest hate rally in human history.

Rhodesia’s Dead — but White Supremacists Have Given It New Life Online

Elon Musk being from South Africa is notable, given his affinity for Rhodesian toxic doublespeak about freedom of speech used to spread hate and censor people. I remember and recognize it well.

He quotes the Declaration of Rights which guarantees freedom of discussion, freedom of speech and expression—and therefore, of agitation—with no discrimination on grounds of race, colour tilt creed. If from now on that were to be the basis of Government in Southern Rhodesia I should be very much persuaded and certainly play my part in persuading the Africans, but I think every one of us who is fair-minded will agree that the present situation in Southern Rhodesia in these respects is the worst in the whole Commonwealth. […]

Bearing in mind the unhappy history of white minority government in Southern Africa, we should say this afternoon that we will not surrender our reserved powers before existing legislation in Southern Rhodesia which is incompatible with the Declaration of Rights is removed. Unless we do that, we shall make a mockery of the whole inclusion of the Declaration of Rights and get the white man labelled as a hypocrite across the length and breadth of Africa.

Elon Musk has left his unhappy family’s failure at running white nationalism on the African continent only to expand such rank hypocrisy more broadly.
