Elon Musk has mostly championed free speech since taking over Twitter. There are a still a number of conservatives who remain banned, including The Gateway Pundit, while he has ignored leftists supporting violence on the platform.
The case of Antifa ‘journalist” Vishal Singh is a particularly acute example. Independent journalist Andy Ngo documented multiple cases of Singh celebrating and calling for violent actions on Twitter. His latest post called for deadly violence against Republicans and Libs of Tiktok:
Vishal Singh, an #Antifa far-left violent extremist in Los Angeles who identifies as a journalist, is calling for deadly violence again. He has declared war on Republicans & repeatedly threatens @libsoftiktok. Singh was invited by @aaja to speak at their conference this year. pic.twitter.com/HGYkcncZ02

Singh previously celebrated assaults on actual journalists and demanded assaults against law enforcement. Examples below:
Vishal Singh celebrated violence against Los Angeles videographer @fromkalen. Singh lied about Kalen being racist to justify when he was punched to the ground while working on the field. @aaja do you approve of this violent targeting of videographers?https://t.co/xGA47YsqRLpic.twitter.com/Tmp5gAt4ou

No one should find Singh’s advocacy surprising. Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization which has carried out multiple assaults on right-wing groups, law enforcement, and journalists for several years. There were even members of the group at the Capitol Hill riot on January 6th, 2021.
Trump supporters, though, were probably the most prominent victims. The most infamous incident occurred in San Diego on January 9th, 2021. Antifa criminals pepper-sprayed and beat the Trump fans merely for protesting the 2020 Presidential Election results. Police later charged 11 members of the group on multiple felony counts including assault with a deadly weapon, use of tear gas, and animal cruelty. One was later sentenced to five years in prison.
Antifa also embarks on doxxing campaigns against individuals they do not like in order to ruin them financially and personally. Doxxing is a particularly dangerous and illegal tactic that has killed people in the past.
Despite their criminal actions, Antifa groups remain in good standing with Musk.
