NextImg:NYT columnist says that 'Elon Musk bought your favorite neighborhood bar and ruined it'

Libs always use the stupid argument that the Second Amendment doesn’t give you the right to own an AR-15 because it doesn’t actually specify “AR-15” on the parchment. And yet they seem to think the First Amendment gives them not just the right to post on Twitter, but the right to be heard. Here’s a New York Times opinion columnist who wrote a piece on how Elon Musk “bought your favorite neighborhood bar and ruined it,” and then immediately posts a link to his column on … Twitter, so that more people will read it.

He complains that “regulars” now have to pay a cover charge; actually, it’s still free for everyone, unlike his column, which is behind a paywall. So he puts a free ad for his piece on Twitter, and then anyone who clicks gets hit with a subscriber log in. The “regulars” have already paid up.

“Former blue check” Farhad Manjoo whines:

About six months ago, Elon Musk bought your favorite neighborhood bar. Then he fired veteran bouncers and bartenders, tried to stiff the landlord and at least one vendor, and demanded that regulars pay a cover charge. He’s frequently struggled to serve his customers, yet he’s penalized them for mentioning the competition. He’s tamped down the revelry in general, really — a lot of conversation at his watering hole has been drowned out by Musk’s own never-ending stage act, which consists mainly of him yelling dad jokes at customers through a bullhorn.

We thought all the serious journalists had moved to the bar down the street, “Mastodon,” but Manjoo (they/them/he/him) doesn’t give his Mastodon handle in his Twitter bio.

He cites as a sign of Twitter’s decline that Donald Trump’s arraignment wasn’t a bigger deal than it was “supposed” to be.

Seriously, more people were promising to leave Twitter if Musk bought it than celebrities promising to move to Canada if Trump won. We remember all of the very serious people tweeting their goodbyes and their forwarding addresses at Mastodon. You don’t see those anymore.
