With ZERO explanation offered, Elon Musk's Twitter has suspended the account of a man who recently went viral for writing a line-in-the-sand letter to his GOP family that led to his MAGA father quiting his local Republican club.
I wonder why Mr. Free Speech is so against it when it isn't right-wing-friendly?
Seattle man Ryan Short, 42, upon being told by his 80-year-old dad that he was still voting GOP, even after the party's relentless anti-LGBTQ rhetoric, emailed his family, stating:
Hear me clearly — you cannot vote for the GOP and continue to have a relationship with me. No exceptions. I am inviting no dialogue, and I have no interest in nuance ... The safety and peace of me, my husband, and my community is baseline, non-negotiable, and unrelated to politics. To vote GOP is to divide the family.
Short isn't trying to win friends and influence people, even if he did the latter, telling Insider:
This letter was a boundary, not a persuasion. It was not intended to persuade anyone.
Twitter came into play when Short posted a screenshot of his email to the social media site. Within a day, Twitter had suspended him.
I guess LGBTQ rights is Musk's line in the sand.
