“I think it’s essential to have free speech and for – and to be able to just communicate freely” said Elon Musk.

 Statements made by Musk on June 16 for #TwitterAllHands was published, or “leaked” by Project Veritas. Musk has received death threats and upended the anti-free speech liberal left after discussions of buying Twitter rocked the nation.

Among that *gasp* outrageous things Musk reiterated during the discussion were the following:

“It’s essential to have free speech.”

“Important to represent multiple opinions & not driving a narrative.”

“In order for people to have trust in @Twitter there needs to be transparency.”

On its website, Project Veritas writes of the leak:

Project Veritas has published the recording of an internal Twitter company-wide meeting wherein Elon Musk addressed thousands of Twitter employees and answered questions moderated by Twitter CMO, Leslie Berland.

“I think it’s essential to have free speech,” Musk said on the call after describing his affinity for Twitter.  He added that “multiple opinions” should exist on Twitter to “make sure that we’re not sort of driving a narrative.”

On the call, Musk was asked about his political leanings, his plans for layoffs and the direction of the company. Musk described his political views as “moderate” noting that he traditionally has voted Democrat but voted Republican this week for the first time in his life, voting for Congressional Candidate Mayra Flores in Texas.

He said he believes most of the world favors moderate politics but that the far left and right should be able to voice their frustrations on Twitter.

Musk also discussed his vision for Twitter saying that traditional news media is “negative” and that they “almost never” get it right. He added that bots, spam and multi-account users must be contained.

“I think an important goal for Twitter would be to try to include as, as much of the country, as much of the world as possible,” Musk added.

Musk notes that he’s “not hung up on titles,” but he certainly wants to be the one driving the product change at Twitter. Musk reacted to the news of Project Veritas publishing the recorded meeting on Twitter, by posting “Exactly.”

As the jury selection for former President Donald Trump’s hush-money trial was being finalized, Max Azzarello set himself on fire Friday afternoon outside the Manhattan courthouse. The event was caught on video by multiple media outlets, and police officers can be seen in the videos dousing Azzarello’s body with a fire extinguisher.

National Review reports on the bizarre occurrence:

Azzarello appears to be a conspiracy-minded former Democratic campaign staffer and operations manager who threw pamphlets into the air before self-immolating that directed bystanders to his Substack blog, “The Ponzi Papers.” Azzarello writes on his Substack of a supposed “totalitarian con” and identifies himself as the man who set himself on fire outside of the Trump courthouse.

Azzarello warns of what he believes to be cryptocurrency ponzi scheme being manipulated by economic elites, most notably tech billionaire Peter Thiel. He claims the government is a “secret kleptocracy” full of financial criminals and highlights The Simpsons as a tool supposedly used by elites to brainwash the American people.

His LinkedIn page features a picture of himself with former president Bill Clinton, a subject of his conspiracy theories, and lists his various marketing and operations positions in politics and tech.
