The Twitter world became slightly less toxic on Thursday when one of the platform’s foremost advocates for censorship nuked his account. Leftist philosopher Sam Harris decided he had enough of Elon Musk’s pro-free speech policies.
Harris is the latest left-wing clown to abruptly quit Twitter. Celebrities from the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Gigi Hadid, and Jack White all left the platform since Musk took over the platform. But Harris’s departure marks the biggest addition by subtraction yet.
Harris is one of the most deranged Trump haters in America. He actually claimed that Donald Trump was worse than Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks. He even semi-defended history’s most infamous terrorist in the process:
“I find Trump more despicable than I found Osama bin Laden. With Osama bin Laden, it’s just obvious to me that he could have been a mensch in some sense, right? He’s making serious sacrifices for ideas that he deeply believes in. He’s committed to a cause greater than himself.”

Harris was also one of the foremost advocates for censoring the truthful New York Post story on Hunter Biden’s laptop. He again insanely proclaimed Trump worse than Bin Laden and then said the following:
“At that point, Hunter Biden literally could have had the corpses of children in his basement and I would not have cared.”

Sam Harris also personally thanked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey when he unceremoniously banned Trump from Twitter following the January 6, 2021 riot. Harris argued the only mistake was the ban did not happen years ago.
Dr. Eli David sums this all up quite simply:
Twitter before Elon: No Donald Trump
Twitter after Elon: No Sam Harris

Musk has his flaws as Twitter CEO, but the fact Trump is back on Twitter while Harris is gone shows the platform moving in a positive direction. Let us hope this continues.
