Conservatives in general, and Wingnut Republicans like Donald Trump in particular, seem to have an inborn flaw. They seem unable to express thoughts that do not show deep ignorance. And they do it without the slightest shyness.
On Sunday morning, Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-QAnon) gave some of the most striking signs of this flaw in a tweet aimed at smearing both liberals and the world’s biggest corporations. showed. But what really bothers me is Her sultry stupidity is taking over the Republican Party Because we are preparing to take a majority in the House.

Instead of hitting her target, Green succeeded in embarrassing herself as usual.In her crackpot commentary, she sought to defend Elon Musk, who he bought She is very upset that many companies that used to advertise on Twitter have temporarily declined to do so as a result. In that vein, she unleashed the following madness…
“This is corporate communism. Businesses are using their economic power to impose their political agenda. Businesses are not kings, they need to go back to the ‘customer is king’ mentality. @elonmusk opens Twitter Hearing everyone speaks doesn’t promote one side.”
Oh! That’s a fair amount of cow dung.Introductory phrase “Corporate Communism” It makes no sense. There are no corporations in a communist economy where all means of production are controlled by the state. That is not the agenda advocated by liberals. She might be thinking of fascism, also known as corporatism, where corporations have power over governments. This is exactly the Republican agenda.
Green also criticizes private corporations for exercising their right to conduct business in ways that best serve the interests of their customers and shareholders. She thinks linking to a list of 50 companies supports her claim.
If a company chooses not to advertise on a particular platform because they don’t want to engage with hateful people or ideas they promote, that’s their prerogative. Generally, companies make such decisions for a reason, not against what their customers want.
Elon Musk has promised to restore all suspended accounts except those that broke the law or spread spam. This means that accounts involved in blatant bias or dangerous disinformation about the pandemic or election are free to resume hostile activity. Never mind that Americans have told advertisers on Twitter that they will not patronize businesses that support such malice. I don’t think
In a world of green – and in a world of musk – “Open Twitter for everyone’s speech” It’s just free speech. But that absolutist standard referred to in the Constitution applies only to government. And it’s not absolute. Private companies can set their own standards there and be driven by customer value. But Green would rather the government force companies and other institutions to advance her values and those of the ultra-right Republican Party.

Green blamed the Democrats. “Unnecessary Vaccine Mandatory [and] A drag queen show at school. “ It’s the kind of snarky speech she wants to permeate into online conversations.
But it is Greene’s position that gives more weight to these claims. She wants to ban companies from doing business freely and silence Americans who want to voice their opinions on those companies. But she’s too stupid to recognize how hypocritical she is. And sadly, as greens go, so do GOPs.
