Left-wing Brazilian authoritarians found that billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk is not easily intimidated. The self-described free speech absolutist and owner of X, formerly Twitter, continues to defy censorship measures handed down by a radical judge.

Musk described the harsh demands of Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes as “the most draconian demands of any country on Earth.”

He should know, as X reaches across the globe into all different political systems. Musk’s courageous stand won the support of legions of Brazilians who value free speech and despise tyranny.


They stand in opposition to the forces of censorship and world elites who desire nothing less than the total control of information. Musk promised that when his employees are secure from state retribution, he will draw back the curtain on the totalitarian regime.

He posted on X that the platform “will publish everything demanded by @Alexandre and how those requests violate Brazilian law.”

Musk asserted that the judge, who ordered that political opponents be deplatformed, “has brazenly and repeatedly betrayed the Constitution and people of Brazil.”

The CEO posted late Monday that he will enact a “full data dump” to show how de Moraes “put his finger on the scale” in 2022. His actions, Musk believes, resulted in the election of President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.


That will only happen when all X workers are in a “safe place or otherwise not in a position of responsibility.” Musk said some of his employees were told they face being arrested.

Musk is now the subject of two probes initiated by de Moraes. The judge believes he is fighting what he calls “anti-democratic digital militias” that spread fake news. 

The war between Musk and the left-wing judge shows no signs of cooling off. The Tesla and SpaceX owner earlier described de Moraes as “the dictator of Brazil” and added that he “has Lula on a leash.”

X revealed on Saturday that it was forced to shutter “certain popular accounts in Brazil” by the judge. It was also threatened with heavy daily fines if it did not comply with the order, prompting the platform to lift all restrictions mandated by the court.

Msk wrote that “as a result, we will probably lose all revenue in Brazil and have to shut down our office there. But principles matter more than profit.”
