Musk Says Assassination Risk ‘Quite Significant’ after Twitter Files Release

'I’m definitely not going to be doing any open-air car parades, let me put it that way... '

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Elon Musk expressed serious concerns that his release of the bombshell Hunter Biden Twitter files could jeopardize his life, and said that he is taking ongoing safety precautions as a second wave of files is released.

The Twitter Files revealed overt collusion between government agents and social media to censor the explosive Hunter Biden laptop story to help then-candidate Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential run. The first drop of files was released by Musk and published on Twitter by journalist Matt Taibbi last week.

“Frankly, the risk of something bad happening to me, or even literally being shot, is quite significant,” Musk said. “I’m definitely not going to be doing any open-air car parades, let me put it that way.”

Despite the security concerns, Musk remained on track to deliver the second round of Twitter Files, but is keeping up his guard.

“It’s not that hard to kill me, if somebody wanted to. Hopefully, they don’t,” Musk said. “I’m taking reasonable precautions, I guess, but there’s definitely some risk here.”

Musk said it was worth it, and that the ultimate goal was to provide a legitimate platform for free speech.

“At the end of the day, we just want to have a future where we’re not oppressed, our speech is not suppressed and we can say what we want to say without fear of reprisals,” Musk said.

“As long as you’re not, like, really causing harm to somebody else, then you should be able to say what you want.”

Ex-Twitter employees were not happy, though, about Musk releasing the names of the people who willfully censored conservative Twitter users, according to The Mind Unleashed.

“We’re furious,” a newly-former Twitter employee told the Washington Post. “It’s absolutely abhorrent they would release names to the public. It can get someone killed.”

Another ex-member of Twitter’s Department of Truth, Yoel Roth, whose name appeared in the files showing his connection to censoring conservatives on Twitter, criticized Musk.

“Publicly posting the names and identities of front-line employees involved in content moderation puts them in harm’s way and is a fundamentally unacceptable thing to do.”
