St. Louis mayor flies Twitter coop after Elon Musk tells truth about Ferguson, ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ lie

Now that new Twitter owner Elon Musk has cleaned house at the social media giant, leftists are threatening to flee the platform to protest the return of free speech and St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones is one who actually followed through.

The Democrat politician who made history when she was elected as the first black female mayor of the midwestern city threw a hissy fit over a Musk tweet that called into question one of the most unshakable tenets of the left’s Black Lives Matter religion, the official narrative of the Ferguson race riots.

In 2014, a hulking teenaged black thug was shot dead after attempting to wrest a gun away from a police officer in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, according to the Obama Justice Department, spawning the big lie of “hands up, don’t shoot” to portray 18-year-old Michael Brown as an innocent victim, nothing could be further from the truth.

Jones pulled the plug in protest of a since-deleted tweet by Musk as a follow-up to a video he posted of a closet filled with t-shirts with the slogan “#StayWoke” that was allegedly discovered at the company’s San Francisco headquarters.

“This is the final straw for me. I’m out,” wrote Jones along with a link to her Instagram account.

“Y’all can have this bird app,” she added.

“#StayWoke shirts stem from the Ferguson protests. Obama’s own DOJ proved this and exonerated the cop. ‘Hands up don’t shoot’ was made up. The whole thing was a fiction,” Musk wrote along with a link to Obama AG Eric Holder’s Justice Department report on the incident that claims that Brown had his hands in the air at the time of the shooting were “inaccurate because they are inconsistent with the physical and forensic evidence.”

Twitter users reacted to Mayor Jones’ temper tantrum with many expressing their opinions that she won’t be missed and others doubting that she’ll stay away.

Some pointed out the ridiculous nature of her stunt and lack of focus on her job.

Nothing has quite rattled Democrats and their armies trolls more than Musk’s toppling of the censorship regime at Twitter and their woes will only continue to multiply when the amnesty for users who were banned for their political beliefs kicks in this week.
