Elon Musk promised a new day at Twitter when it came to protecting free speech and ending censorship.
But one group waging a battle against a government clampdown on COVID-19 and dubious animal research says Musk leaves much too much to be desired.
On Monday, the White Coat Waste Project, a watchdog group within the scientific research community, asserted that Twitter, under Musk, is “banning and censoring” several ads.
The claims come just after Musk faced criticism after Twitter sought to restrict views of The Daily Wire’s explosive documentary “What is a Woman?” The Daily Wire released the film again on June 1 to mark the one-year anniversary of its original airing.
The White Coat Waste Project, or WCW, says Twitter “outrageously rejected” its promoted posts about the National Institutes of Health and Dr. Anthony Fauci funding the Wuhan Institute of Virology and horrific research into beagles.
Twitter also banned their posts about the NIH supporting “puppy experimentation” and a tweet about Violet’s Law, a federal bill with bipartisan backing that would retire puppies, kittens, and young primates that survive government experimentation.
“Elon Musk claims that Twitter is the last bastion of free speech — a very noble proposition. But after 8 months under his leadership, the partisans and parasites at Twitter are still banning and censoring our ads exposing the U.S. government’s $20 billion annual wasteful spending spree on cruel and dangerous animal tests, including the experiments that probably caused the lab leak and COVID pandemic,” Anthony Bellotti, founder and president of the WCW, said in a statement.
Bellotti said Twitter informed his organization last month that it halted the WCW account “due to promoting low quality and disturbing contents surrounding the Covid-19 virus Wuhan lab leak as well as the $15 billion dollar animal experiments without sufficient and credible resources.”
“Yet, Musk himself is sharing emails and information we obtained via a well-documented Freedom of Information Act investigation and lawsuit against (the) NIH proving Fauci funded gain-of-function. We also used the government’s own records to first expose how Fauci’s NIH-funded dog torture including de-barking beagles and feeding them to sand flies.”
According to the group, Twitter also claimed the WCW was using “over-sensationalised (sic) words to drive traffic to their content,” including a video about the Wuhan lab-leak theory.
“On Musk’s watch, whether he knows it or not, Twitter still appears to be doing the bidding of big government bureaucrats and censoring the truth about how the feds are abusing animals with our tax dollars,” said Bellotti.
“Elon, if you’re listening, we’re trying to give you money to get out a simple but important message about wasteful government animal experiments: Stop the Money. Stop the Madness!”
