“Twitter Senior Engineer Talks Elon Musk Takeover in NEW Undercover Video: ‘Twitter Does Not Believe in Free Speech’ … Admits Employees at Tech Giant are ‘Commie as F**k’

• Project Veritas published a new story on Monday night featuring footage of Twitter Senior Engineer, Siru Murugesan, discussing how employees at the tech company “hate” Elon Musk’s impending acquisition of Twitter among several other explosive soundbites.
• Leaving no doubt to one of the primary sources of the rift between Musk and employees at Twitter, Murugesan at one point says: “Twitter does not believe in free speech… Elon believes in free speech.”
• Murugesan: “Our jobs are at stake, he’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist. Like we’re all like commie as f**k.”
• Murugesan on attempts to prevent the Musk deal: “We did all we could to like revolt against it. A lot of employees were revolting against it.”
• Murugesan on Twitter offering equal access to both parties: “I don’t know if two parties can truly coexist on one platform.”
• Murugesan on how Twitter employees are dealing with the changes at Twitter: “They’re like, ‘this would be my last day if it happens…’ a lot has changed. Like, we’re stress eating a lot. Like, we’re all worried for our jobs.”
[NEW YORK – May 16, 2022] Project Veritas published explosive undercover footage on Monday night featuring one of Twitter’s senior engineers discussing the dynamics behind internal reactions to the acquisition of the tech company by business magnate, Elon Musk.

In the video, Twitter Sr. Engineer, Siru Murugesan, says many of his colleagues have voiced “this would be my last day if it happens,” referring to Musk’s high publicized intended purchase of Twitter. He also says employees at Twitter are “stress-eating” and “worried for our jobs.”

More significant than those soundbites are the reasons he says employees at Twitter feel this way.

“Our jobs are at stake; he’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist,” Murugesan says before adding, “we’re all like commie as f**k.”

Murugesan also pointed to free speech being one of the core issues employees at Twitter have with its new likely owner, Elon Musk.

When asked about the difference between Twitter’s definition of free speech and Musk’s, the Sr. Engineer left no room for interpretation. “Twitter does not believe in free speech,” said Murugesan answering the undercover journalist.
Back in March, Musk said he was a “free speech absolutist” and clarified his comments further adding, “By free speech, I simply mean that which matches the law. I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law. If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people.”
Murugesan also explained how Twitter employees did all they could to “revolt against” Musk’s takeover of the company.

“We did all we could to like revolt against it. A lot of employees were revolting against it, but at the end of the day, the board of directors have the say.”

He added that he thought the board “… acted on their best interests ‘cause they didn’t want to get sued…. they’re always looking out for themselves at the end of the day.”

At the time of this writing, Twitter has yet to respond to a request for comment.”

Uvalde Police SUING To Prevent Records From Going Public…

Date: June 25, 2022

“The story of the Uvalde police’s response to the school shooter last week keeps “evolving,” and always in ways that reveal the inexplicable incompetence, confusion and cowardice officers up and down the chain of command demonstrated that day. So it should probably come as little surprise to find that the Uvalde police are currently suing to keep all records — including body cam footage, 911 calls and text messages — hidden from public scrutiny.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the Uvalde police story and why it’s reflective of many of the wider problems with policing in the United States.”

Republican AG Removed From Office After Killing A Man…

“The Republican Attorney General of South Dakota was impeached and removed from office this week after he was found guilty by the state legislature of lying about killing a man with his vehicle. The AG, Jason Ravnsborg, had claimed that he thought he had hit a deer or a bear with his car, but it turned out to be a man. The Republicans in the legislature simply couldn’t get over the holes in his story, so they voted to get rid of him. At least now we know where Republicans finally draw the line, as Farron Cousins explains.

I know right now it may seem like Republicans really just have no interest at all in holding their own accountable, you know, upholding the rule of law. But believe it or not folks, we actually found out this week where Republicans draw the line with their own members. And apparently that line is don’t lie about killing a man and using the power of your office to cover it up. That is what happened in the state of South Dakota, where the Republican controlled legislature voted this week to impeach remove and forever bar from holding future office in the state, their Republican attorney general Jason Rabo, who was a first term Republican attorney general, who in 2020, ran over a man late at night, a 55 year old man. Now Rabo had previously pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor charges that law enforcement officials levied upon him. Of course, for killing a man.

And those misdemeanor charges were, um, making an legal lane change and using a phone while driving. Hmm. You killed a man and get in trouble for that. And here’s the thing. He lied about it. According to the nine one one call the evening that Mr. Ravens board killed this 55 year old man, he told the 9 1 1 operator, I think I hit a deer or maybe another large animal. He didn’t know for sure what he hit till he went back the next morning, I guess, to look. And that’s when he realized, oh no, it was a human being and the Republicans in the state legislature, which by the way, it’s 32 Republicans to three Democrats. in that South Dakota legislature, uh, that voted to impeach him and remove him and bar him. Um, and in fact, they almost didn’t get all the votes they needed to impeach him there.

Uh, they hit the bare minimum threshold of 24 votes, but why’d you even go back the next morning, unless of course you thought maybe it wasn’t an animal after all, but here’s where the story gets even more screwy. And this is why those two little misdemeanor charges of course are so, uh, uh, ridiculous. It turns out that according to a recreation of the crash, it’s most likely that the man’s face went through Ravens Bo’s windshield. And you know how they know that not just from, you know, imprints and things like that, you know, typical CSI type stuff. No, no, no. It’s cuz the man’s glasses were found in Ravens Bo’s car. The man’s glasses were in his car, which means his face had to have gone through that windshield or some other window of the car with enough force to knock his glasses off.

They also determined by the way, in the reconstruction that, uh, Ravens Borg had veered completely off the road when he hit the man, which actually led some Republicans who did vote to impeach him to say he ran him down. You know, almost trying to say that it was intentional. I don’t think it was intentional, but there’s also, you know, conflicting stories of what he told the police investigators. Like, no I wasn’t on my phone. And then he said, yeah, I was on my phone, which is why he got that misdemeanor charge and had to pay a minor fine again for killing a man whose face went through his windshield. That’s vehicular homicide.

This man should not have been able to plead no contest to a pair of misdemeanors. He shouldn’t have even had to have been impeached because he should have faced felony charges for leaving the scene of an accident after killing a human being. I mean that’s years and years and years in a federal prison. So if you ask me this man got off light and of course all the Republicans again, who voted to impeach him, uh, one of them even said, by the way, I’ve heard better lies from a five year old, they knew that his story was screwed up. And even in the investigation itself of the initial crash, he couldn’t keep his own story straight. At one point he said like, and yeah, when I saw him and then he goes, oh, well, well, I mean, I didn’t see him changing stories about using the phone. The man’s glasses were in the car for God’s sakes. That’s the only piece of evidence you needed. The glasses couldn’t have been in the car unless his head somehow got into the car.”

Alex Jones’ Former Colleagues Say His Whole ‘Personality’ Is A Sham…


….

“CNN has created a new mini-documentary about the rise of Alex Jones and his conspiracy platform, with many of his former colleagues telling the network that it is all a sham. Former editors have revealed that Jones has no problem simply making things up and lying to his audience, and that the real threat of the show is that the audience will believe whatever he tells them. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

An investigative reporter named drew Griffin for CNN has produced a new special that basically looks at the rise of Alex Jones on the far right? And in the course of this investigative special, he talked to people that used to work for Alex Jones and a common theme emerged among a lot of them, not all of them, but a lot of them. And that is that Jones is full of crap. Oh, not just with the things he says, but he’s full of crap in the sense that he himself doesn’t believe it. It’s all an act. It’s a sham. They say, and of course, this is exactly what Alex Jones’ lawyers and Jones himself said in court in 2017, after you know, he was involved in that bitter divorce hearing, they went to court and said, Hey, look, I’m not really this crazy wacko you see on TV. It’s just an act.

I should have custody of my kids. And after that was made, public Jones was forced to do a video from his car on the way to court saying, no, it’s totally real. I really am that guy. But now you have all these people that used to work for him saying, no, it’s not real. One of them. When, as far as to say this, he said he will just lie straight up lie. Like nothing is going on. Like it’s real. And the issue with that is that a lot of people believe him. Another one who said he doesn’t know whether or not Alex Jones believes what he’s saying, but he said that part’s irrelevant because the big danger is that the audience does. So an even more common theme among the people who used to work for Alex Jones is that the real dangers that people believe it, no matter what he says, no matter how crazy it is, no matter how much of a lunatic he comes across, as they’ll believe it, they will eat it up no matter what.

And that is the danger of his show. And unfortunately like a lot of the, the right wing media, that’s the danger of it. The danger is that there’s far too many people willing to take it face value, whatever these people tell them when they go out there and say stupid things like, oh, Democrats are forcing, you know, gender, uh, reassignment on children. Even if the children don’t want it, the audience believes it. It’s not true that hasn’t happened, but they’ll go out and say crazy things like that. And the audience will suck it up without even thinking to double check. Oh, maybe that’s not real. No, that doesn’t sound right. Nope. They’ll believe it. No matter what, which is why, by the way, I believe a lot of folks on the writer are just totally faking it. They’re absolutely faking it for money, for clicks, for likes, for clout, whatever it is, summing. some examples I like to see, or I like to say, excuse me, people like Dave Rubin, he knows he is a grifter. There’s no way. He doesn’t know. He

Went over to the right after being on the left because it’s easier because you can just make stuff up. And there’s a lot of money in it. Trust me, the folks on the right are doing better than everybody over here on the left. And I do mean everybody. Not only that they get the corporate backing, they get the Republican foundation backing. They start their own foundations, get money in Charlie Kirk, another great example. They go out there and they say these stupid and crazy things. And a lot of them, I believe it truly is an act. People like Tony LA on the other hand, she’s genuinely stupid. She believes what she says. Ben Shapiro believes what he says, but those that have really submitted their status over there on the right. They know they’re full of it. People like Alex Jones, Alex Jones, he knows he’s full of it, but he is gonna keep doing it because it makes him a lot of money and the audience, no matter how crazy these things are, no matter how outlandish they’re gonna believe it, no matter what, because they blindly trust these individuals to tell them how to think, how to feel every single day.

That is the danger of right wing media. Not that you have whack jobs out there saying stupid stuff, but that there’s far too many people in this country willing to believe it.”


Yeah…it’s always interesting to see who is on good terms with Alex Jones…Just an observation.
