Musk, Brazilian Supreme Court Continue Fight Over Free Speech

The owner of X, formerly known as Twitter, Elon Musk, recently said the social media platform would “dump” the totalitarian censure requests by the Brazilian Supreme Court as soon as employees are safe from irrational arrests.

Musk and the Brazilian Supreme Court have engaged in a struggle, with the X owner fighting tirelessly to defend free speech. He has clearly said that the orders by Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes “are the most draconian demands of any country on Earth.”

Many freedom-loving Brazilians are standing strong alongside Musk, with thousands posting memes on X celebrating that the platform’s owner is willing to stand up to the leftist Brazilian government’s radicalism.

Prominent individuals, such as retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin, have also joined Musk in his fight against the Brazilian government.

“Coming shortly, X will publish everything demanded by @Alexandre and how those requests violate Brazilian law,” Musk wrote. “This judge has brazenly and repeatedly betrayed the constitution and people of Brazil. He should resign or be impeached.”

The Gateway Pundit noted that for Musk to issue such publications, he must “get our employees in Brazil to a safe place or otherwise not in a position of responsibility” since they “have been told they will be arrested.”

“The comments add to an escalating row over disinformation between Brazilian authorities, X and Musk after the billionaire ordered the company to reinstate accounts blocked by the government,” Forbes reported.

Musk blasted Moraes as the “Dictator of Brazil” days after the Supreme Court justice accused the X owner of waging a “disinformation campaign against the court and its actions.”

Moraes’ order imposed heavy fines, including the arrest of X employees. He indicated that he would consider barring using the social media platform in Brazil.

The Brazilian government threatened to cancel all contracts with Musk’s Starlink, despite the satellite company working tirelessly to deliver broadband internet to schools in isolated areas of the Amazon.

Musk said that if the Brazilian government does not cancel the contract, Starlink would provide internet services to the schools in the Amazon for free.
