FCC Commissioner

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.”  Psalms 95:6 (KJV) 

Leftists across the board have reacted with both anger and concern after Monday’s announcement that Tesla CEO Elon Musk had purchased the social media giant Twitter. If there was a competition for the most embarrassing reaction, a George Soros-funded institute might just take the gold.

According to reporter Mona Salama, Open Markets Institute is a small, left-wing think tank funded by Soros, a notoriously far-left billionaire. The institute itself lists Soros’ Open Society Foundation as one of its major donors.

Salama wrote on Twitter the group asked the Federal Communications Commission, Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice to block Musk’s acquisition of twitter. The group claimed these three agencies had “ample authority to block it.”

On Wednesday, FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr vehemently rejected the request.

“The FCC has no authority to block Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, and to suggest otherwise is absurd,” Carr wrote in a news release shared to his Twitter account.

“I would welcome the full FCC making it clear that we will not entertain these types of frivolous arguments.”

As Carr’s statement indicated, he wasn’t speaking for the FCC as a body.

The commission is supposed to have five members, with no more than three belonging to either the Republican or Democratic parties. Carr, appointed by former President Donald Trump, is one of two Republicans on the commission.

There are two Democrats, with the final slot currently vacant. In March, the Senate Commerce Committee tied on a vote on President Joe Biden’s nomination of Gigi Sohn, which sends the nomination to the Senate without a recommendation, according to TVTechnology, a media trade journal. (Sohn is a controversial pick, critized by notable conservatives like Fox News host Tucker Carlson.)

In the caption that accompanied the release, Carr further criticized Open Minds Institute’s absurd suggestion.

“The FCC has zero authority to block Musk’s purchase of Twitter,” Carr wrote. “And it is particularly frivolous to ask the agency to do so in the name of protecting free speech and open debate.”

The request from a Soros-funded institute to block Musk’s deal with Twitter is clearly politically motivated. Soros himself wants to ensure Twitter can keep censoring ideas he does not like, and that is why he tried to block Musk from bringing free speech back to Twitter.

The good news is that Carr was not fooled by Soros’ antics. In additional tweets, Carr dismantled a common leftist argument against Musk’s acquisition of Twitter.

“The pro-censorship crowd is running a straw man argument,” he wrote in a Tweet along with a video of his app…
