The announcement that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk finished the agreement to purchase Twitter for around $44 billion drew polarizing responses as liberals cautioned of “hate speech” and Conservatives celebrated it as a win for free speech. The full video of Tucker Carlson's response can be viewed below. Fox News’s Tucker Carlson tweeted for the first time in weeks on Monday, saying, “We’re back.” Carlson had not tweeted since March 22, when he had been suspended after posting two screenshots of the posts that Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk and the Babylon Bee had written citing Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine, a transgender woman, as a man, saying, “Both of these are true.” [tweet_embed] April 28, 2022[/tweet_embed] Monday night, Carlson reacted to Musk’s purchase of Twitter on his Tucker Carlson Tonight show, saying: “Musk’s purchase of Twitter is the single biggest political development since Donald Trump’s election in 2016. It is certainly the most threatening challenge to the corrupt and incompetent leadership of this country.” Carlson opened with a short introduction about Elon Musk’s aspiration to purchase Twitter, saying: “Elon Musk does not agree with the rest of the billionaires in the tech business. Unlike the leaders of Facebook, Apple, and Amazon, Elon believes in free speech.” “He thinks everyone should be allowed to talk, including people who disagree with him,” he added.

But it doesn’t matter. One platform going rogue is enough to break the monopoly.” Carlson praised Musk’s purchase, saying the average person “became a little more powerful.” “Tonight, the tyrants are grieving,” Carlson added. CNN host Brian Stelter expressed his contempt while equating Musk’s purchase of Twitter to being invited to a party with no rules. “If you get invited to something where there are no rules, where there is total freedom for everybody, do you actually want to go to that party, or are you going to decide to stay home?” Stelter asked on CNN Monday afternoon. [tweet_embed] April 28, 2022[/tweet_embed] Kyle Griffin, an MSNBC producer, tweeted a quote from the NAACP expressing concern over Musk’s purchase. “NAACP statement: ‘Mr. Musk: free speech is wonderful, hate speech is unacceptable. Disinformation, misinformation and hate speech have NO PLACE on Twitter. Do not allow 45 to return to the platform. Do not allow Twitter to become a petri dish for hate speech,’” Griffin wrote.
