Leftists love to claim that hate speech on Twitter has skyrocketed since billionaire Elon Musk’s takeover, but on Thursday he set the record straight.
Representative Adam Schiff, D-Calif., jumped on the platform to “demand action” on the purported rise in racism, sexism, and antisemitism. But Musk swooped in to swiftly take the air out of the liberal lawmaker’s sails.
On Elon Musk’s Twitter:
– Slurs against Black people have tripled
– Slurs against women are up 33%
– Slurs against Jewish people are up 61%
– And slurs against gay men are up 58%
These numbers are abysmal – and unacceptable.
Today, @RepMarkTakano and I are demanding action.

“False, hate speech impressions are actually down by 1/3 for Twitter now vs prior to acquisition,” Musk responded.

But Musk wasn’t the only one to recognize Schiff’s disinformation:
Did Big Pharma finance this study?

This is exactly what we should expect from @RepAdamSchiff

What “statistics”? I see no proof of his statement. He cited no study. These are purely fantastical numbers he threw out to see if they’d stick.

How about you reduce the debt, focus on our border, live by the same laws as real Americans, do something- to build up America instead of tear it down.

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
Adam, you’re famous for creating propagandas, Elon is famous for exposing propaganda.
We’ll see which truth will be self evident. https://t.co/JndiNxg6kK

This is from the same source who STILL hasn’t shown us the “ironclad” proof he has that Trump collided wi5h Russia in the 2016 election. https://t.co/EpcqYOixyE

92.385% of unsourced stats on twitter were pulled out someone’s ass.
You know this is a valid statistic because it goes out 3 decimal places. https://t.co/CASKzRGo68

no no no no no. even if all of this is true (and Schiff’s tweet is conspicuously lacking in sources) it is not the government’s role to take “action” against speech, even ugly speech https://t.co/0h7cajtfBb
