Shaun King has meltdown for the ages when Twitter takeover spins him into a free speech frenzy

Shaun King, who many speculated had deleted his Twitter account following the news that Elon Musk had officially purchased the platform, is back and bitter-er than ever.

Wasting no time at all, he called out Jack Posobiec and Donald Trump Jr., both of whom had posted about his account’s sudden and unexplained disappearance from the platform.

He blamed his absence on nameless, faceless people he claims were associated with the Capitol riot on January 6, and being forced to make his Twitter account “more secure.” And for good measure, he kept throwing around the “white supremacist” insult.

But if there’s anything to know about Shaun King, it’s that he’s not a one-hit-wonder.

He got down to business asking “gotcha” questions to conservatives who, to his likely dismay, did not “STRUGGLE” to answer him honestly and openly.

“Ask ANY conservative this question and watch them STRUGGLE to answer it. Since you say free speech and ALL speech needs to be allowed on Twitter, does that mean you believe that should included targeted hate speech against Jews? Should that be allowed? Be specific and clear,” he tweeted.

Apparently, supporting free speech means standing for “advocating for underage sex with children” in King’s book, which is an interesting place for one’s mind to go when they hear they may be threatened with more freedom, instead of less.

However, conservatives who believe in free speech with no exceptions, AKA “free speech absolutists,” were quick to respond to King’s question.

Since his attempt to showcase the conservative “STRUGGLE” to respond to his question unequivocally failed, he resorted to the age-old trick of calling everyone who did EXACTLY what he said, a racist. While it’s fairly obvious from the question’s framing that this was supposed to be the end result from the beginning, that doesn’t make it any less of a pathetic attempt to score points with other libs who think censorship of crude, rude and downright deplorable ideas is the only way to utopia.

King peddled the following response repeatedly to many conservatives who answered his call:

To summarize, anyone who doesn’t agree with censorship (even selective censorship) hates Jews, black people, and any other minority King can come up with. There is clearly no exception for nuanced thought and debate, even if you don’t hold those views yourself. In order to be a good person, you need to prevent other people from speaking those opinions as well.

Though, the very minorities King is trying to use for his argument may disagree with him on this:
