Twitter boss Elon Musk is once again putting his commitment to free speech and expression on display with a unique debate challenge to a new business emperor.
Musk has challenged Alex Soros, the son of far-left business and political activist George Soros, to a debate in Twitter Spaces shortly after his father handed him control of his $25 billion empire.
“If @AlexanderSoros is serious about freedom of speech, then we have common ground,” Musk said. “But destroying public safety by electing DAs who won’t prosecute violent criminals needs to stop.”
George Soros, through his various Marxist-oriented non-profit groups, has poured millions of dollars into local district attorney races to elect far-left candidates whose “criminal justice reform” measures essentially amount to a commitment to stop prosecuting dozens of crimes under the phony guise of ‘combatting racism.’
As a result, in many of the country’s largest cities — all of which have been run by Democrats for years — crime and violence have spiked, which critics of Soros claim was the objective all along for the purpose of driving political and policy changes.

Left-wing ‘journalist’ Brian Krassenstein replied to Musk, “I agree that public safety is incredibly important. From what I have read from Soros himself, his initiatives are not to make society less safe but to forgo the prosecution of some addicts and those suffering from mental health ailments and instead get them the help they need to recover or get treated appropriately.
“O[f] course one can argue that the DAs he supported have failed but I wouldn’t necessarily jump to the conclusion that his actions are evil,” he added.
Musk replied: “Maybe we should do a Spaces with you, me & Alex to air this out.”

Meanwhile, Alex Soros has frequented the Biden White House, according to a recent report.
Fox News reported that Democrat megadonor Alex has been to the White House at least 17 times, though it’s not clear why.
“The younger Soros, who chairs the board of directors for his father’s Open Society Foundations network, has now visited the White House at least 17 times since 2021, according to a Fox News Digital review of visitor logs,” the outlet reported earlier this month.
“Alex’s most recent visits include three meetings between February 8th and 10th, records released Tuesday show. The visitor logs list Jon Finer, the principal deputy national security adviser; Jordan Finkelstein, special assistant to the president and the chief of staff for senior Biden adviser Anita Dunn; and Mariana Adame, the adviser to the counselor of the president, as the individuals who greeted Alex,” the report continued.
“It remains unclear precisely who Alex may have met with for the sessions, as the records can contain White House staff who book appointments, meet the guests and take them to other personnel,” Fox News Digital added.
In January, a White House official confirmed to Fox News Digital that Alex had made previous visits, including meetings with Ron Klain, Biden’s former chief of staff, which were not documented in the records. OSF did not provide details about Alex’s recent meetings, and the White House did not respond to inquiries regarding the matter.
In addition to his previous 14 visits, the three most recent visits by Soros Jr. to the White House have drawn attention. While he has leveraged his connections with the Biden administration, Soros Jr. has also actively maintained close contact with Democratic lawmakers, a fact he frequently highlights and shares on social media platforms, Fox News added.
On his Instagram account, there are numerous photos showcasing Alex’s interactions with prominent Democrats in both the House and the Senate from 2018 to 2022.
