Never Trump Paul Singer’s Takeover of Twitter Isn’t a Win for Conservatives

Published

on

With billionaire Republican oligarch Paul Singer reportedly buying a “sizable” stake in social media titan Twitter, there are now rumors Jack Dorsey’s days are numbered as Twitter’s CEO.

Conservatives are cheering this move, having accused the social media company of bias since Donald Trump was elected in 2016.

Conservative commentator Carmine Sabia tweeted, “Paul Singer was anti-Trump but has come around and is on our team. He has always been a conservative. This purchase means the end of silencing and banning conservatives for no f**king reason and Democrats are losing their minds over it which, frankly, is a bonus.”

Conservatives may be cheering about this decision, but they should think twice.

Last December, Tucker Carlson attacked Singer for his business practices, which Breitbart News covered:

“[T]he model is ruthless economic efficiency: Buy a distressed company, outsource the jobs, liquidate the valuable assets, fire middle management, and once the smoke has cleared, dump what remains to the highest bidder, often in Asia,” Carlson detailed. “It has happened around the country. It has made a small number of people phenomenally rich. One of them is a New York-based hedge fund manager called Paul Singer, who, according to Forbes, has amassed a personal fortune of more than $3 billion.”

Carlson used the example of automotive parts supplier Delphi.

“During the last financial crisis, a consortium of hedge funds, including Singer’s Elliott Management, purchased Delphi,” he stated. “With Singer and the other funds at the helm, the company took billions of dollars in government bailouts. Obama’s auto-czar compared the tactics to extortion. Once they had the bailout money, the funds moved most of Delphi’s jobs overseas, and then either cut retiree pensions entirely or shifted the costs to taxpayers.”

“With lighter financial commitments at home and cheap factories abroad, Delphi’s stock soared,” he added. “According to investigative reporter Greg Palast, of the 29 Delphi plants in operation when the hedge funds started buying Delphi debt, only four were still operating in the United States by 2012. Tens of thousands of unionized and white-collar workers lost their jobs. Paul Singer’s hedge fund cashed out for more than a billion dollars.”

Singer was originally a Trump opponent but is now hopping on the Trump bandwagon like many opportunistic conservatives.

His potential takeover of Twitter should concern America First types. After all, Singer is a major never-ending wars and mass migration booster.

The latter is the civilizational issue of our times, given the voting patterns of migrants and how they can negatively impact certain civil liberties of the Historic American Nation such as gun ownership and free speech.

Singer’s move represents how interlinked both the political and economic establishment are.

Even when there’s supposed “change”, things remain the same as another gatekeeper comes into the mix and maintains the status quo.

A Singer-influenced Twitter will likely defend generic conservative voices on the platform but will do nothing to protect America First immigration skeptics.

Conservatives would be wise before lavishing praise on a financial titan such as Singer.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
