As we reported Monday, the wahmbulances were on standby for panicked Twitter leftists, “journalists,” and Twitter employees alike (but I repeat myself) after news broke that the social media platform had “entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by an entity wholly owned by Elon Musk, for $54.20 per share in cash in a transaction valued at approximately $44 billion.”
Prior to the press release issued by Twitter confirming that the “definitive agreement” was in the works, certain prominent “woketivists” were issuing frantic calls to action of sorts to their fellow wokesters warning, without evidence, that a Musk takeover supposedly would ensure that “white nationalism” would reign supreme on the platform.
King took to the Twitter machine Monday to go on a bizarre, virtue-signaling tantrum where he alleged, among other things he wrote in a multi-tweet rant, that Musk’s desire to run Twitter was “about white power.”
“At its root, @ElonMusk wanting to purchase Twitter is not about left vs right. It’s about white power,” King proclaimed. “The man was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist. He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to target/harass people. That’s his definition of free speech.”
Apparently, King was so fauxfended by the news of Musk’s impending takeover that at some point he either deleted or deactivated his Twitter account:

The revelation prompted many, including Donald Trump, Jr. to declare that King’s actions made Musk’s purchase worth it:
That alone is worth $44 billion. https://t.co/QrAdcbucSN

In addition to allegations of fraud and accusations that he’s appropriated black culture by masquerading as a black man, King is also known for using his Twitter platform to defame people. King even once falsely accused a Houston-area man of murdering a black girl. The man later killed himself.
As I was writing this, King’s account began appearing active again. He is now claiming in expletive-filled tweets to his critics that he had to make his account more “secure” after allegedly “getting death threats and hack attempts.”
Considering his past full of well-documented lies, color me skeptical. King is known for his attention-grabbing ploys, so much so that he’s earned a lot of not-so-flattering nicknames – including from some of his so-called allies on the left:

What’s likely the case here is that he and other professional outrage mobsters on the left are conflicted about whether to stay or go from Twitter. That people who cause more harm than good on social media are mulling whether to stick around is a good thing, and is solid evidence that Musk’s actions are already bearing delicious fruit.
In addition to this news, popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson announced Monday that he was back after his account’s suspension, and talk show host Mark Levin also posted that he had returned after a self-imposed 15-month hiatus from Twitter.
