(TheProudRepublic.com) – HAPPENING NOW: Having upheld a permanent ban of the X account of controversial talk show host Alex Jones just a year ago with a rather scorching tweet, Elon Musk has changed his mind and reinstated Alex Jones to the social media platform.
As CNBC, amongst many others, is reporting:
“Elon Musk on Sunday reinstated the account of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on X, formerly Twitter, reneging on a year-ago vow to keep Jones off the social network.
“Jones was previously suspended from Twitter in 2018 for violating the company’s “abusive behavior policy.” That suspension, deemed permanent under the company’s prior management, came as Jones faced a defamation lawsuit for spreading the false claim that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax.
“Musk’s decision to bring Jones back to X comes on the anniversary week of the Sandy Hook shooting.” [emphasis added]
Here is what Musk tweeted a year ago about Jones when others had asked Musk to reinstate Jones.
My firstborn child died in my arms. I felt his last heartbeat.
I have no mercy for anyone who would use the deaths of children for gain, politics or fame.
