Billionaire Elon Musk’s much publicized takeover of tech giant Twitter has been met with a variety of sentiments, to put it mildly. Many on this right, including myself, are optimistic about Musk, Twitter, freedom of speech and the relationship between them. There have, however, been a few other disparate elements that have come together to deeply embolden Conservatives even further. Those elements are the much-reported on Nick Sandmann and a prominent independent journalist named Matt Taibbi.

It is now being reported by Fox News that:

Former Covington High School student Nicholas Sandmann asked new Twitter owner Elon Musk to release any files related to the platform allowing death threats against him while he was a teenager.

“As I’m watching this all play out, I’m wondering if @elonmusk has any hidden twitter files relating to what went on here,” Sandmann said on Twitter Sunday. “Let’s be clear: under the watch of @vijaya they allowed these illegal threats when I was 16 years old.”

Sandmann shared screenshots taken of multiple verified Twitter accounts calling on people to burn down Sandmann’s high school and throw “MAGA kids” into a wood chipper.

Fox News then went on to report that:

The post comes after Musk’s release of what Musk called the “Twitter files,” a collection of internal communications at the company that shows Twitter colluded with media outlets, government officials and Democratic operatives to suppress certain stories on the platform.

Sandmann was at the center of controversy in 2019 after the March For Life, where he was photographed smiling while wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat as he was being confronted by Native American activist Nathan Phillips. Many media outlets portrayed the incident as a group of White teenagers harassing an older Native American, though full video of the incident later showed Sandmann and his fellow students remained calm after they were initially confronted by Phillips.

It was further reported by the New York Post that:

Musk on Friday released through journalist Matt Taibbi internal emails shedding light on the deliberations of a group of top Twitter executives that decided The Post’s bombshell story about President Biden’s son violated the company’s “hacked materials” policy without any evidence. 

Vijaya, whom Sandmann mentioned in his Tweet, referred to Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s former head of legal, policy, and trust who played a “key role” in the decision, according to Taibbi.

Musk canned Gadde after he bought the social media company for $44 billion in October. 

Sandmann, 20, was vilified by the media when footage aired of an encounter between him wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap and Native American activists participating in an Indigenous People March. 

It was also reported by The Epoch Times that:

At the time, the video footage went viral and multiple media outlets falsely reported that the teenager had harassed Philips and “stood in his way,” while portraying the events as a group of white teenagers harassing an older Native American.

However, further video footage emerged later showing that Sandmann had been confronted and harassed by other people at the event and that it was Phillips who approached Sandmann and beat a drum while the young Sandmann responded in a calm manner by standing still and smiling.

The teenager later sued a string of outlets including ABC, CBS, CNN, The New York Times, and The Washington Post, among others, for defamation.

In his post to Musk on Sunday, Sandmann noted that Twitter had allowed the verified accounts that had made death threats against him and his classmates to remain on the platform but had banned others “for nothing.”

The video set off a media firestorm, with many claiming the encounter was racially motivated and instigated by Sandmann and his fellow students, who attended a nearby anti-abortion march. 

Matt Taibbi , for his part, has been a journalist for some time and has a very interesting substack that everyone should check out. Interestingly enough, he was once a contributing editor to leftie rag The Rolling Stones. People have the right to change their mind. Hopefully, his involvement in the twitter files will spell some serious consequences for those that have decided that people right to freedom of speech should be superseded by political partisanship and media dishonesty.
