Ex-Fox News host Tucker Carlson has plans to broadcast his show on Twitter, and Glenn Beck believes Carlson’s move is a great one — especially considering that Elon Musk has taken over the platform.
“What Elon Musk is doing is reasonable and American,” Glenn says. “He is trying to turn it into an actual town square.”
Glenn believes the ability to openly discuss differing ideas and opinions is paramount if we want to save America.
But Big Tech companies are making that incredibly hard.
“Right now, people like me and Ben Shapiro and Tucker Carlson are being throttled by social media platforms like Facebook and Youtube. We actually have teams of people — you can’t believe the amount of time and money and energy it takes to strategize every single day on how not to get censored for sharing what we believe to be true,” he explains.
He adds, “The Germans found out that’s very effective; to shut down people who want to say things that you as the government don’t want people to hear.”
Glenn says that it’s important that those who do believe in free speech stick together and continue to fight.
“I see us all as a team — myself, BlazeTV, the Daily Wire, Twitter — and I am thrilled to partner with anyone who believes in the First Amendment,” he says.
But they don’t need to agree on everything, Glenn explains.
“I doubt Elon Musk and I agree on an awful lot, but we don’t need to agree. We only need to agree that freedom of speech is paramount for a free society. And anyone who is against censorship, all censorship, I stand with you.”
