Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld focused his opening monologue Thursday on the notion of liberals and left-wing non-profits calling for a boycott of Twitter should Elon Musk’s acquisition of the social media platform be completed.
“In case you’re normal and have no idea what an NGO is, it stands for ‘No-Good Organization.’ Pretty clever. They’re nonprofit groups that claim to be independent of any government, but aim to push radical agendas like no cash bail and now, censorship,” Gutfeld asserted. “Imagine a group even more obnoxious and less accountable than government employees.”
“This week, the NGOs sent a letter urging a boycott of Twitter if Musk takes over the company. Its backers include former Clinton operatives, billionaire George Soros as well as – get this – the European Union,” he reported.
“The Ukrainians must be thrilled to hear the E.U.’s got their priorities straight,” Gutfeld quipped, adding that another signatory of the letter is, unsurprisingly, the government of Canada.
“But let’s not forget, it was the Canadian prime minister that called Canadian truckers Nazis, which is about as hateful as you can get, although maybe not quite as hateful as donning blackface. If Justin Trudeau’s worried about speech, he should look in the mirror. But the last thing he wants to do is argue with a person of color,” he jokingly warned.
He continued. “I get why he hates Twitter. Any kind of speech about him is usually going to be critical because he sucks! He’s the worst thing to come from Canada since Neil Young’s voice.”

It appears Elon Musk wants to shed light on the matter as well:

The letter in question at one point argues that Musk’s acquisition of Twitter would “toxify our information ecosystem and be a direct threat to public safety, especially among those already most vulnerable and marginalized.”
Gutfeld retorted, “Wait, are we talking about free speech on Twitter or defunding the police?”
“They don’t think twice about vulnerable people when they get rid of cash bail. But allowing free speech on Twitter? That will leave a trail of dead bodies from here to Silicon Valley. You’d think you were walking in Chicago after 4:00 P.M,” he mused.
“But this is the same fear trotted out against anyone they want to eliminate from discourse, and as usual, it’s in the name of the marginalized. But has a white, wealthy leftist ever asked a marginalized group what they really want? Of course not. They wouldn’t dare go into a marginalized neighborhood. They may get stabbed by a guy who’s back on the street thanks to their own policies,” he argued.
“While boycotts have been around forever, these are now not about a product, but about silencing any opposition using the social media mob. This group also claims that an advertiser ‘risks association with the platform amplifying hate, extremism, health misinformation and conspiracy theories.’ Maybe the letter was meant for CNN,” Gutfeld joked.
“They also claimed that under Musk’s management, Twitter risks becoming a ‘cesspool’ of misinformation. Twitter risks becoming a cesspool of misinformation? What is it already?” he asked incredulously.
“When someone mentions Twitter, you don’t exactly picture guys in powdered wigs sitting in a venerable hall, debating the importance of the Protestant work ethic on a capitalist society while having afternoon tea.”
“Saying Musk could make Twitter a cesspool of untruths is like complaining about diarrhea before you’ve been to Chipotle, ” he analogized.
“So who’s behind this?” he asked. “It appears it’s three organizations which are all left-wing outfits. Jesse Lehrich, a co-founder of Accountable Tech, once served as spokesperson for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. So, he definitely knows about a toxic ecosystem. Media Matters is a bitter den of couch-bound leftists [who] spend nearly all their time watching Fox and tweeting about it.”
“No wonder Musk scares them so much. He might make these lonely losers work harder, or have a heart attack. But the left-wing media has always been about monopolizing speech. They’re not even trying to hide it anymore,” Gutfeld concluded.
